30 May 15th, 2015 Stephen Nichols and Peter Reckell Finish First Week Back Together Shooting Scenes At DAYS!


Stephen Nichols (Patch) and Peter Reckell (Bo) are back in the saddle at Days of our Lives, where the guys completed, according to a tweet from Nichols this afternoon, 7 episodes in two days!

While pictured her is some older images of Patch and Bo, if you head on over to Yahoo TV, they have the very exclusive first look picture of Stephen Nichols and Peter Reckell together again as the dynamic duo from the set of the NBC soap opera set to turn 50 years old in November, which is the impetus for bringing these two beloved characters back into the fold … and for some major story!

Yahoo reports: “The actors are currently filming their episodes, with Nichols, last seen on the show in 2009, set to reappear at the end of August, and Reckell, who was last seen on DOOL in 2012, returning early in September. And yes, the friends and former brothers-in-law will share scenes together …. as the series welcomes back the actors for multiple episodes.”

Nichols tweeted today: “We had a great time our first week back together. More to come! Thanks Ken C. & @DenaHigley & @tvjoshgriffith &Crew”

So, what do you think will happen in story from the looks of the “First Look” photo at Yahoo, and that the duo are appearing in multiple episodes of the sudser?  Excited to see Patch and Bo together again?  Comment below!

    Cannot wait to see them on screen!!! Can we skip ahead a few months?! The anticipation is too much ;) The original posted stated they were only back for the 7 episodes that the filmed in 2 days but both Stephen and Peter have tweeted that is not the case!!! Thank God because the fans and Days need them for as long as possible!

    I’m leaving well enough alone : “husband material (s) ”

    I’m “SO” excited… for Patch… and : that’s simply because…. Kayla needs so much more airtime !

    so this is huge for me : Patch and Joey ! I can’t believe it : I cant stand it : LOVE fest

    the lovely and radiant Hope.. (KA) : knocked it out of the park w/both Aiden and Bo

    Peter Reckell : “Thank You” : I am so ready for all of the family to celebrate

    I”m going to cry when he reunites with Ciera


    Jules replied

    Patrick did you hear Mary Beth Evans is back on contract an shooting like mad these days? Whether this has to do with SN has yet to be seen obviously, but hopefully this means that regardless, we’ll continue to see her on our screen in story.

    BTW- HEY! How you doing pal?


    Patrick replied

    Jules : (beam) thank you for the kinship

    @4ever.. said as much… so.. to know my Mary Beth Evans features full on… takes me back.. and this plays out on my screen with; radiates

    how could it generate so much better

    Days has hits… and misses…. and I miss…

    the pleasure i real with all reel from 4 takes

    “multiple episodes” are the words of Yahoo, not DAYS brass. Yahoo had an earlier version of the article that had to be changed for the false report of only a seven episode appearance.

    Hey, ya know what?
    This the what lol
    I’m becoming sick and tired with Y&R,,
    I need a new soap journey.. Something new to expolre..
    I do believe I will be putting Y&R on the shelf and try DOOL …
    So- whatcha think?


    Patrick replied

    in my 35 plus years watching…

    I never left a show… till Y&R
    back when… i switched to GH… when , on Y&R, Sharon and Adam ( the original, Michael Muhney) broke up

    i watched all soaps i chose till cancellation

    I have to use a posters’ word: excruciating

    and yes… that’s it: simply broken hearted… bereft and memories abound

    I can’t stand what has happened to #1

    my DAYS has taken hits … more than I will realize

    Days of OUR lives… ( and thank you for posting, as such ) DrOOL enlivens and soars

    serial catch


    Patrick replied

    sorry… have to honest

    I tried Generations.. when it was aired… I couldn’t get it

    thankfully… the audience as well.. as it lasted.

    Generations is an American soap opera that aired on NBC from March 27, 1989, to January 25, 1991. The show was groundbreaking in that it was the first soap opera to feature from its inception an African-American family.


    CeeCee replied

    I thought you watched both, Su…including GH.
    No matter which way the storylines go, I will never stop watching. For me there are only three left. I never got into watching B&B.


    su0000 replied

    I watch 2 soaps..
    Y&R and GH ..
    But – since Y&R lost Billy Miller, Michael Muhney, Michelle, and other characters I really liked, like Tucker, Chloe, Y&R has been empty of the greatness it once was..

    A change is always good..

    I just watched Dark Shadow on Decades network on broadcast tv, now that is soap!!
    It started in black n white and then went to color..
    It was bursting with the best campy I have ever seen!!! brilliant campy!
    Dark Shadows= you can’t watch just one, you need more and more..

    anyways,, I need a Y&R break..

    CeeCee replied

    @su000. I know what you mean about a Y&R…it leaves me for a lot yo be desired. But, I feel that there’s a force making me watch, su…LOL.
    Hmmmm. DARK SHADOWS…I need to try looking into that soap. Thanks.

    su0000 replied

    CeeCee, hi ..
    I do not know how you will ever see Dark Shadows..
    People have begged to see it aired again on TV..

    Only way you will see it, entirely..(or get lucky and wait for a network to air it)
    it sells for- 131 discs $360.00
    488 sold . 5 star rating from all..
    Convention held annually since 1983, usually in New York or Los Angeles and the 2016 convention is scheduled .. you should go lol
    Dark Shadows Fan Club is going strong, still…

    Dark Shadows is like rock&roll, it will never die..
    (( June 27, 1966, to April 2, 1971 ))
    The likes of Dark Shadows will never be been seen again..’tightly copyrighted..

    Patrick replied

    LOL… don’t follow my so far

    I liken myself to Willie Lumis… he traversed so far.. and fell… trapped?

    he deserved to have gotten out of the clutches of Barnabas

    LOL…. I loved “this” show of show

    Patrick replied

    @su : have to agree with CeeCee

    “…there’s a force making me watch, ”

    LOL… it’s what makes… this “Michael Fairman” site… so blissful… a place to water cooler.. and place

    if you chose to watch Y&R … it’d be tough to not watch…

    don’t you ever stop watching GH… your snippets are priceless…

    so… if your heart belongs to Genoa.. I don’t think you’ll not

    if i had the time… to watch my denizens of Genoa City… i’d be their right along with… that being said… I read all posts regarding the #1 show… albeit questionable

    Patrick replied

    Dark Shadows: (wiki)

    When Willie awoke, he had gone insane and was sent to Windcliff (329). He later returned from Windcliff, but as a result of the trauma, he remained unhinged (483

  5. Tammy says:

    I have been watching Days of Our Lives since I was a child and I can remember all the great actors and actress that have been on there. These two are amazing actors and I can’t wait to see them both back and hopefully to stay. The emotion they can show and the chemistry they have is truly amazing. Welcome back to DOOL.


  6. Dawn says:

    Totally ready for to see them. I’ve been waiting for them to return to Days. I knew it would happen at some point. I’m so excited.


    4ever DAYS replied

    You’re so excited and you just can’t hide it…Please help spread the word. Tell all your friends and family. Let coworkers know. How about your mail carrier? Are you within shouting distance of neighbors? The checkout counter at the grocery store is a great way to spread the word! Some people refuse to go online…can you take an place an AD in your local newspaper. When I was doing a roofing job, I literally shouted from the rooftop and more roofs to come!!!!!

    Please do what you can to get the word out, everyone!


    CeeCee replied

    You are cracking me up…LOL

    Patrick replied

    right, CeeCee… LOL

    “…can you take an place an AD in your local newspaper ”

    I truly should do this

    I care this much

  7. kelly says:

    How long will Stephen Nichols and Peter Reckell stay this time?


    rebecca1 replied

    I don’t watch this soap but I may just tune in to see Stephen Nichols…always like to see an ol’ fave wherever they wind up. As disappointing as it might be for fans of DAYS if it’s not a long arc…I’m hoping this means Nicols will eventually reprise his role as Stefan on GH…


  8. rainie says:

    I have been doing the happy dance since I found out that Bo is coming home. If the writers have any sense at all they will send this jerk loser creep Aiden packing. We all know Fancy Face only has one real love and that is Bo Brady. To pair Hope with anybody other than Bo is a huge mistake.


  9. Debbie Borden says:

    I am so glad they are bringing Peter and Steven back. I hope they have some good story lines. I have missed Bo and Patch.


    4ever DAYS replied

    When DAYS knew they would be firing the writers, they asked several writers for a bible of storyline plans concerning the 50th anniversary and beyond…Dena Higley and Josh Griffith submitted meaty material which no one could deny!

    Be prepared to witness the writing team’s greatness that will push DAYS to 55!!!!!

    Place an AD in your local paper! Tell all your old school friends!! Turn the neighborhood watch into DAYS watchers!!! Visit a nursing home and turn the channel to NBC on the lobby TV!!!! Don’t cook for your husband unless he watches with you!!!!!


  10. KMB says:

    Love, love, love Stephen Nichols and I will watch any soap that he is on. :)


  11. dmr says:

    I’ve just never been a fan of Peter’s “Bo Brady.” I’ve always thought Peter’s Bo was written as a Keystone Kop who never cracked or solved a case. Robert Kelker Kelly’s Bo, I thought-was charming, handsome, and tough. Honestly, between nuWill-the actor himself and the character’s antics, lack of love stories (besides Hope and Aidan who are really cute), the Theresa show, Eve’s drama with “that boy,” and the other lackluster stuff going on in Salem-will need to tune-out for a bit, I think. I miss Kristen!


  12. Shelley Warshaw says:

    I am beyond thrilled that they are both back! They were the heart of this show for soooo long!!! However, I’m getting nervous that their return is only for a short time. Even worse, If they are bringing Bo back only to die off and give Hope the OK to be with someone else, I will be devastated!!!!!! When Peter said to get the tissues out,it made me really nervous!!! I love them both and cannot wait to see them back on screen,. They need contracts!!!!!!!! There are several new, young actors on who really DON”T CUT IT!!!!!! For example, Mr. Wilson, REALLY NEEDS TO GO!!!!! In addition, they bring a new very young actor who is supposed to take over the Dimera Empire from James Scott????? REALLY??? You think he works??? NO! he doesn’t.
    Please, keep Peter and Steve on and give us back the show we all knew and loved!


  13. Willa Sargent says:

    I AM SOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED that Peter & Stephen is back, and i wish, and hope for long time, i am 50 yrs Fan,, i saw Peter first day appearing, i have been huge Fan every since plus Stephen.. soooooooo Happy to see these 2 Dynamic actors on my tv screen! i have screamed, cried, jumped for joy over this news!!! i was very upset to see Peter and Stephen leave before.. not ever the same… hugss XOXO
