More departures at DAYS? Report from Daytime Royalty has that Molly Burnett (Melanie) who returned last year as Melanie Jonas is done at the NBC soap opera and that she finished taping back in December.
Burnett had been involved in a romantic storyline with Eric Martsolf’s Brady Black, while getting in the mix with Theresa (Jen Lilley) and Serena (Melissa Archer).
The Daytime Royalty posts reads: “As has been rumored in recent months, Molly Burnett (Melanie) wrapped up her six-month “Days” stint in December, so look for Melanie to last air around the end of May.”
With Burnett gone, in addition to other recent exits from Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Melissa Archer, the show looks to be prepping for its 50th anniversary run. The announcement of Peter Reckell (Bo) and Stephen Nichols (Patch) has excited long time viewers, who also hope more good news is on the way with other former faves set to make a return before the golden anniversary begins!
