If this were to happen, this would be a serious blow to the Days of our Lives brand! According to Soap Opera Digest this morning, they are reporting that they have been hearing that Peter Reckell (Bo Brady) has been quietly telling his castmates that he is getting ready to leave the series!
Reckell, according to SOD, has reportedly been in protracted talks with the soap to work out a new deal. “We do not comment on contract negotiations. We hope that Peter stays with Days of our Lives,” said a spokesperson for the series.
Let’s just hope this is a case of negotiations being dragged out like we have seen with other SONY actors such as Eric Braeden and Melody Thomas Scott of Y&R. If Reckell were to leave, we could also understand from his perspective that having played the role since 1983, and staying with the show through all its turbulent ups and downs, he might want to step away from it. If Bo were to be given some great story worthy of Reckell’s talent, that might have also helped!
Stay tuned on this developing story! And, let us know what you think of the possibility of a DAYS without Reckell?
