Get ready to join Peacock for a weeklong special event! In the trailer for “Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem,” debuting Monday, September 6, we learn that Charles Shaughnessy will reprise his role as Shane Donovan in the “Days of our Lives” spinoff as he hopes to find the Alamainian Peacock, which was stolen in 1991.
As Shane explains to John Black (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall), the gems have fallen into the wrong hands which an intuitive John asserts there’s more to the story than what they are being told. Later, we see several of our favorite characters as they deal with instances of mystery, betrayal and passion!
“Beyond Salem” brings together past and present residents of Salem as they spend a long weekend out of town with John and Marlena traveling to Zurich, Ben and Ciara having a romantic getaway in New Orleans, Chad visiting some old friends in Phoenix, and Abe, Paulina, Lani, and Eli vacationing in Miami. They each find themselves embroiled in the mystery involving the stolen jewels which, in the wrong hands, could cause dire consequences for Salem. Joining them for the hunt will be ISA agent Billie Reed (Lisa Rinna) as she crosses the globe in search of the missing treasure.
Joining Rinna, Hogestyn and Hall are Jackée Harry as Paulina Price, James Reynolds as Abe Carver, Victoria Konefal as Ciara Brady, Robert Scott Wilson as Ben Weston, Billy Flynn as Chad DiMera, Lamon Archey as Eli Grant and Sal Stowers as Lani Price. Eileen Davidson is also set to appear although her role has not been announced.
Other featured players include Thaao Penghlis as Tony DiMera, Leann Hunley as Anna DiMera, Christie Clark as Carrie Brady, Austin Peck as Austin Reed, Greg Rikaart as Leo Stark, Chandler Massey as Will Horton, and Zachary Atticus Tinker as Sonny Kiriakis, who all join the hunt of stolen gems across the globe. “RuPaul’s Drag Race” alum Jackie Cox is also set to appear along with Peter Porte (ex-Ricky Williams, “The Young and the Restless”) and other yet-to-be-announced cast members. Cox is a Canadian drag queen famously known for her Lisa Rinna impersonation. Porte will portray ISA agent Kyle Graham.
Check out the trailer below.
The limited series will release daily over five days culminating with its finale on Friday, September 10 as it promises action-packed adventure filled with romance, drama, and surprises that only a “Days of our Lives” series can deliver.
Make sure to spend a week with your favorite Salem super couples and reconnect with many familiar faces along the way.
