Finally! Fantastic news for Days of our Lives fans and those of the beloved super couple Jack and Jennifer! Matthew Ashford announced very late last evening via his facebook, and it has been confirmed, that he is returning to the role he made soap-famous, Jack Deveraux!
Matthew posted this statement: “I wish to make an announcement. I am happy to report that I will be returning to NBC’s Days of our Lives as the character of Jack Devereaux sometime later this month. I do not know any real specifics but look forward to this opportunity to play jack and work with old and new friends. More news forthcoming soon. Thank you for all your support!”
This is tremendous news for fans of the series and Jack and Jennifer who have been lobbying for months to get Ashford back to his rightful place in Salem. Now that Jennifer played by Melissa Reeves is striking up a romantic relationship with Dr. Daniel (Shawn Christian) you can see where Jack’s return can now figure into this equation, and make for some dramatic and romantic upcoming story, as DAYS plan to re-set itself and re-establish some of its past glory. Stay tuned.
