Here’s a very welcome surprise! While DAYS executive Ken Corday told soap press that he would not have more returns-from-the-dead in the imminent future, news from TV Insider on Monday has that none other than the beloved Matthew Ashford is returning to the NBC soap opera as Jack Deveraux!
As fans of the series know, Jack perished in an elevator shaft/crash saving his daughter Abigail (Kate Mansi). However in his upcoming return, as of now, Matthew is slated to appear in a five episode arc. Ashford begins taping this week at the NBC set of Days of our Lives.
Since DAYS tapes so far in advance, the audience will not see how Jack’s return plays itself out till the spring of 2016.
So, will Jack come back as a vision and a ghost to tie up his love story with Jennifer? Is Jack actually alive? Could fan response bring back Ashford even for more episodes next year? Share your thoughts on the return of Matt Ashford to DAYS in the comment section below!
