72 October 8th, 2014 Peter Reckell Tweets: “Not Promising Anything But, There Maybe Some Progress!” Is A DAYS Return In the Works?

Former Days of our Lives fan favorite Peter Reckell (Bo) left the series a few years back, and since that time has not made a return. Diehard Bo and Reckell fans have hoped and wished to see him again on the their screens.

Meanwhile, his DAYS on-screen love interest Kristian Alfonso (Hope) has moved into a new romance with Daniel Cosgrove’s Aiden, and things are continuing to heat up for the couple as the show tells the dissolution of the marriage of Hope and Bo, with Bo being off-screen.

Today, Peter Reckell posted a tweet to his followers on Twitter that read:  “Thks 4 the love u guys! I very much appreciate your comments & keeping me up 2 date. Not promising anything but, there maybe some progress!”

So what could he be referring to?  Is a short term stint in the works for Reckell to come back and close out the story?  Would he even consider returning at this juncture in his life?  Or, could he not be referring to DAYS at all in his tweet, but some other project? 

Share your thoughts below!  Would you be interest in a Reckell return at this point?  Or, do you think the Hope and Aiden should go on with their romance story without Bo in the mix a tall?

    I agree! I want him back. But for good, not just short term. Days is not Days without him.
    And it isn’t his fault that the writers totally botched this story…what were they thinking dragging it out like this???

    You know, if this was a report about a definate return instead of yet another speculation, then it would be ‘news’…but instead its a guessing game and this paticular one has become a bit tiresome…

    jimsgimlet replied

    I agree. Let Hope move on. Maybe Bo could come back at some later date. On another note , please let Nicole be happy. I’m starting to feel sorry for her since every one in town is against her.

    jimh: I agree. I was never a “Bo” fan. I started watching DOOL when RKK played Bo. I liked RKK as Bo. Peter as Bo-always seemed too cocky-honestly, I’m not sure if he ever solved a case for the Salem PD while I watched DOOL!

    I actually liked RKK better too…and when paired with Lisa R.(Billie)

    I thought he was living in Nashville hugging trees. And yes RKK was one of the best recasts ever I was watching the show then he did a good job.

    Bo and Hope are my all time favorite Super Couple. I haven’t watch DOOL for a very long time…I stopped after he left and they killed off Jack. I may start watching again. And if they bring back Jack, I will watch for sure.

    That would be great if Jack returns and Bo is responsible…its top secret and Bo was unable to tell Hope!!!

    MBmomof3 replied

    I think Jack will find his way home too. With all the Jack references I think it is inevitable. I hope so.

    I would like to see Bo get a proper send off, but more importantly I want to see Hope move forward. They’ve left her in limbo long enough. I like her with Aiden, so far.

    I’d love for Peter to return at least for a short stint to close out the story. It would be even better if he came back permanently, because I’ve really missed Bo since he’s been gone. I love him and Hope together, but I’m also liking Hope and Aiden. So if Bo does return, I’d rather see him paired up with someone else so the show can explore Hope and Aiden more, at least for now. I’d also love for him to bring Belle and Shawn with him if he comes back!

    If he comes back let it be for a short time to tie up loose ends. I love Hope and Aiden together and i’m sick of these husbands just walking away from their families. You people can write better stories than that. I hope somewhere along the way that Zack returns and his death or faked death was caused by Stephino.

    I think it would be great for the show if Peter came back. But only if they give him a decent story line – nothing on the back burner. I also have been enjoying Hope/Aiden. Kinda wished they had “killed” off Bo, had Hope fall in love with Aiden…and then after a while, Bo was discovered alive again – maybe with amnesia or something. Good old-fashioned soap drama!

    It seems as though both parties are having a tough time coming to terms…whatever that entails only they would know for sure…however, I don’t think we want to go through the scenario that GH played out with (Robin) Kim McCollough… it was a terrible failure.

    I understand the need for closure, but hopefully they will both do what is best for the fans of the show.

    Oh Please I would love to see Peter come back!! I have so loved watching him since I was in High School..45 now, evolve into a handsome man today. My whole life has mirrored Bo and Hope..I have been through so many trials and tribulations myself. My Husband today looked and acted just like Bo Brady in High School and believe me the chase was on to get him..it succeeded! Today we have two sons Tristan 16 and Tyler 7. Tristan was diagnosed with Leukemia back in 2008, he fought and won it and just getting through his treatments we would snuggle up together in his Hospital bed and watch DOOL specifically to see Bo and Hope..love them!! AND I would reminisce about his father looking and being just like Bo and knowing that we could get through everything and we got through his Leukemia. He is now an Honor Roll Student in High School and doing great! The Bo and Hope days are a huge part of me as my Bo lookalike became my best friend and my husband!! Please come back Peter..we are holding out for a Hero!!!

    Laurie replied

    Oh Sharon, I agree with you 100%!! This isn’t the first time he’s left and teased about coming back..Plus he’s been teasing this ALL year. He’s left and returned to the show MANY times. I don’t blame him not wanting to take a paycut or be on the backburner. I support him and agree Bo shouldn’t be on the backburner. Bo & Hope were amazing for sure and ALL the daytime soaps are in DESPERATE need of supercouples right now! IMO. It just seems like such a jerk thing to do to say “not promising anything, but there MAY be some progress”..honestly, that sounds like a stunt just to excite the viewers and turn them against Aiden and Hope, who sizzle together!
    It really interferes with the flow of the storyline when an actor does this (leaving & coming back all the time) even though Hope only has a tiny trickle of a storyline right now for reasons unbeknownst to me! She’s only on a few times a month. Her and Aiden have great potential and Daniel Cosgrove is a leading man, Emmy nominated actor who’s had many front burner stories/romances on several soaps. He’s still a young, sexy guy & great actor who has made magic out of the tiny bread crumbs that have been thrown his and Hope’s character’s way in the year he’s been on the show (bake sales & fighting kids storylines). IMAGINE what these 2 could do with some meaty storylines!?
    If PR comes back he should just wrap up with Hope & let her move on or STAY on the show! JMO, no offense meant.

    Bigger fear, John Is going to somehow spin it that Kristen is the one who hit him causing the coma, thus her exit from the show, then he will somehow blackmail Teresa to keep her away from Brady and get away with it all.

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    I too mention under a previous thread that John will blackmail Theresa to stay away from Brady…i do like the idea that he will blame Kristen for hitting him and it’ll lead to her exit but didnt that happen before Kristens arrival…and everyone knows Theresa was at the scene and said Brady struck him so wouldnt they wonder why she wouldnt claim Kristen was there and did it instead of blaming Brady…that would have been an awesome twist but it just wouldnt work out since Kristen wasnt around!!!

    I was not please when they fired Robert Keller Kelly as Bo to bring back Peter Reckell as Bo because I knew it would be a matter of time at some point Peter would want out of Days as he did in 1988 and return in the early 1990′s but to then leave again in 92 at that point was replace with Robert K. Kelly and with that Peter Reckell was shock that his replacement actually work with cast crew and fans and Peter did not want a recast Bo because he felt it would not work and boy was he wrong. Robert K Kelly I fell brought more to the role of Bo more that it’s oringinal portrayer Peter Reckell.

    Then july 1995 comes as a big shocker they NBC/Days fires Robert K. Kelly while he was on vacation to bring back Peter Reckll and I as well as many others was mad, hurt and shock by that news, and as I remember Peter Reckell made his return debut on August 1, 1995 and I said wrong move very wrong because Peter will won’t out eventually and what happens 17 years and some months later Peter want out once again he last aired November or December 2012. I wish In the end that they would have kept Robert K Kelly as Bo their is a high chance he might woukd have still been our Bo Brady.

    I like BOTH Peter Reckell AND Robert Kelker-Kelly. I would not have minded either one of them portraying Bo on Days – surprised that RKK was not asked to come back. But, if Peter Reckell is willing to come back – either for a while or longer, I’d be happy. It’s okay for Hope to move on with Aidan – Bo/Peter could still return to Salem (where he belongs, since he’s been on the show for SO many years, it’s still difficult to imagine Salem without him.) Perhaps the writer and he (Peter) are “making progress” on a deal in which Bo comes back for a short while to end his story (which, BTW, was written in a pretty sucky way by the writers – ie, no way should they have allowed his character to be gone for so long with no word or phone calls from him whatsoever) – anyway, long story short, I”d like to see Bo come back, and I don’t mind either character portraying him. I like Bo in Salem, and poor little Ciara seems absolutely bereft without him. Bev

If he comes, hope they give him a good storyline. Loved the storylines and romance from the Bo and Hope era. That is when Days was at the top of its game.

    2015 marks Days of Our Lives 50th anniversary and I think we will see the return of Peter Reckell as Bo Brady in 2015. I just hope that the return is not short-term but rather long-term because Bo & Hope are my favorite all-time soap couple.

    Still, I do like Hope & Aiden and how the show has slowly-built the pairing. I think that was a smart way to diffuse potential backlash from diehard Bo & Hope fans. Rushing the couple is one of the many problems with Jennifer & Daniel. Besides from having an ounce of chemistry, the couple was immediately paired again after Jack’s death. I hate how the show forces and frontburners Jennifer & Daniel as an angst-filled couple and Daniel Jonas as the lead character. Daniel heals every medical condition he faces while also solving all of Salem’s crimes! “Look! It’s a bird. It’s a plane. No, it’s Super-Daniel! He can do no wrong and will be featured every damned day!”

    I digress…my vote is the return of Peter Reckell in exchange for Shawn Christian (Daniel), the actress that plays Paige and the actor that plays Ben. With the exits of Allison Sweeney and James Scott, the show should be able to afford Peter Reckell’s salary. I just hope that DAYS realizes his importance to the canvas entering it’s 50 anniversary year and not make the decision As The World Turns did when not inviting Martha Byrne to play Lily in the series’ finale!

    Please bring back Peter Reckell back as Bo. Kristian Alfonso and Peter Reckell really do work so well together. They have been such an important part of the show that it’s hard to imagine Days without either one of them. Hoping that Bo will return and that they will reunite. In the scene where Hope writes the letter she comments that she will always love Bo. Her heart belongs to him and no one can replace him .. Not even Aiden. If Peter returns it will make for some great scenes. Bring him back ASAP!

    Although Bo & Hope are legendary characters I am fine with him not returning. I have always liked Daniel Cosgrove and think he has been a great addition to the cast. Days may not have written Bo off the canvas in the best way but in part that is due to PR’s not wanting to return or willingness to only return if Bo has major story all the time. His complaint was that Bo was not utilized properly. Well, I am sure every actor on all the shows would like to be front & center all the time but that’s not reality.

    I would be just as happy if he never came back. Let Hope move on. The character has been lightened up and more fun since paired with Cosgrove than she ever was with Bo.

    Apparently you have not watched this show since the beginning and witnessed the connection between these two actors!! Days of our Lives needs this super couple back!!! Now that EJ and Sami are gone the show NEEDS this to survive

    Reply

    Chaz replied

    Apparently you are unaware that Days debuted in 1965 but Kristian Alfonso & Peter Reckell did not join until 1983 so watching the show from the beginning is immaterial. Reckell CHOSE to leave and obviously will not be returning so it is unfair to leave KA in limbo working only sporadically. Pairing her with Cosgrove gives her story and airtime.

    I am sure the show will stay on the air with or without Mr. Reckell.

    Chaz, you are so full of it. They made Days just like Julie and Doug, Tom and Alice, John and Doc that’s what Days is about. I am 58 years old and been watching this show from the time it started as a child. When I work I listen to it on the radio every day with ear plugs. Bo and Hope belong together. I was so mad when they took him off. Its time for him to come home. I can’t believe Sami is leaving and EJ is dead I cry my eyes out. I think she is really making a mistake by leaving, but everyone needs a break I hope she will be back soon.

    Have been a Reckell fan from the start…He needs to properly close out the Bo and Hope union (or if I had my wish, re-establish Bope) He cannot allow a divorce to happen and resign to this with a wimpering silence off screen. This is Bo and Hope we’re talking about. If he comes home to fight for his marriage but continue his mission, and loses the marriage in process, well so be it. But I’m hoping that they still leave the door open for Bo to return, however that looks. Even if its only on a recurring status. With the leads of Ejami now gone, we Life long “DOOL” fans need something to look forward to, and we just love our “famous originals” BTW heart broken over the loss of James Scott…and without the hope of return. Cried my eyes out Devastated!

    I have been watching Days since I was a little girl when I should have been napping, my mom was watching and I would peek around the corner and watch. I remember certain couples throughout the years that has made the show what it is. But Days seems to want to kill off all the great and happy couples. I was so sad to see Sami and EJ removed from the show. It would not have been so bad if they would have left as the happy couple they fought so hard to be. Peter Reckell has been such a huge part of this show and I want to see him back. I was devastated when they killed of Jack. I would be again if Peter Reckell never returns. I am seriously considering putting an end to watching this show because there are very few happy moments on this show anymore and I need happiness in my life. I hate that Days focuses on the negative instead of the positive.

    Bo should come back in riding to Hope’s rescue
    when Aiden goes over the edge and has Hope held hostage
    or something. At least THAT would be in TRUE character
    of Bo. I would write it that he was about to return
    home a long time ago but when Aiden moved
    in on Hope he couldn’t because Aiden was
    part of the under cover thing Bo was working
    on and he couldn’t come back until they had him
    where they wanted them. Aiden would
    have to be connected to the Dimera’s or
    some other big crime thing that Bo was about
    to bust open or he wouldn’t have let him get
    that close to Hope, but THAT’s what we need
    BO to come riding in on his bike and kick some
