Zach Tinker and Greg Rikaart are reprising their roles as Sonny Kiriakis and Leo Stark, respectively, in “Days of our Lives: A Very Salem Christmas,” the first-ever holiday movie set in the “Days of our Lives” universe. The movie will stream exclusively on Peacock beginning Thursday, December 16.

In the holiday movie, Will Horton (Chandler Massey) writes a screenplay before his Christmas Eve deadline. Using everyone’s favorite feel-good holiday movie tropes, he creates a festive story based on his family and friends in Salem — but with several twists and turns viewers will never see coming.

Eileen Davidson was confirmed to be appearing in the movie last week while Alison Sweeney (Sami Brady) was announced earlier today.

Additional cast members taking part in “Days of our Lives: A Very Salem Christmas” include Deidre Hall, Jackée Harry, Drake Hogestyn, Camila Banus, Arianne Zucker, Raven Bowens, Eric Martsolf, Billy Flynn, Paul Telfer, Lindsay Arnold, Lucas Adams, Carson Boatman, Dan Feuerriegel, Zach Tinker and Blake Berris

Of the movie’s casting, Berris stands out as an odd choice considering his character, Nick Fallon, died several years ago and more recently appeared as a corpse during the Halloween episodes of “Days of our Lives.” Considering Christmas traditionally celebrates the name “Nicholas,” either in song or as Santa himself, we can’t help but wonder where Salem’s “Nick” falls into the overall plot. It sure will be intriguing, that’s for sure.

According to Peacock, it was a no-brainer for them to pick up the holiday movie from “DAYS” producers following the success of “Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem,” the five-part limited series that aired over five days in early September. 

The limited series and the holiday movie are both produced by Corday Productions in association with Sony Pictures Television. Ken Corday is the executive producer with co-executive producer Albert Alarr. Ron Carlivati serves as head writer.

Days of our Lives: A Very Salem Christmas” will stream beginning Thursday, December 16 on Peacock. For more information, visit peacockTV.com.
