Peacock is ready to unveil the next chapter of the “Days of our Lives” spinoff series “Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem.” The streaming service today released the official trailer and key art for the show’s five-episode second season which drops daily beginning Monday, July 11 through Friday, July 15.
In the minute-long trailer, we stumble upon Steve Johnson (Stephen Nichols) and John Black (Drake Hogestyn) tied up in a room planning their escape which likely takes place later in the plot as we’re then shown scenes of Steve appearing alongside Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) as they pay a visit to their children in Seattle, including Stephanie and Joey (Abigail Klein and Tanner Stine), and Tripp (Lucas Adams) who Steve had from a prior encounter with Ava (Tamara Braun). Earlier this month on the parent series, Tripp left Salem with plans to connect with his siblings.
Meanwhile, for the first time in two years, Hope Williams Brady (Kristian Alfonso) is reunited with her daughter, Ciara (Victoria Konefal), and for the first time ever is introduced to her grandchild, Beauregard “Bo” Brady Weston. Also shown is Harris Michaels (Steve Burton) who has been MIA for more than 34 years but somehow pops in with ties to Hope while appearing in several disguises, including as a Naval officer, a pizza delivery man, a police officer, and a secret government spy. Ciara is later heard asking Hope who is at the door when we’re shown a stern-faced Harris standing opposite a stunned Hope. Their encounter is set to take place in Montreal.
Leaving Salem in November 2018 after learning Will (Chandler Massey) still had feelings for Sonny (then played by Freddie Smith), Paul (Christopher Sean) is back in San Francisco and this time it looks like he’ll be finding love again. Appearing in a fitness gym locker room, Andrew Donovan (Colton Little) is seen asking Paul, “How are you on frequent flier miles?” Andrew is the eldest son of Kimberly and Shane Donovan and hasn’t been seen or heard from since at least 1997. Paul is the son of John Black from a prior relationship with Tori Narita. Look for John to travel to San Francisco to see his son.
With the next chapter promising old favorites and brand new faces, the globe-trotting adventure jumps from Montreal to Monte Carlo and to Hong Kong, among other popular destinations, as viewers are pushed even further beyond Salem where the past and present collide for the ultimate “Days of our Lives” event.
The trailer includes an appearance by Bo Brady (Peter Reckell) who wonders what his “fancy face” is up to when Hope is shown pulling out a top secret folder with the ISA logo on the front. Bo died a few years ago but recently appeared as an Angel to help save Tripp’s life after the young man had sacrificed himself to help rid the town of the Devil. Also shown is Angela (Loretta Devine), an angel who interacts with Bo and is none too pleased with his recent actions.
Gabi and Li (Camila Banus and Remington Hoffman) get busy on the top floor of a high-rise tower while Kristen (Eileen Davidson) is shown being her normal sneaky self. Look for Joey and Tripp to place their bets when their encounter with Wendy Shin (Victoria Grace) goes from catching a mystery person off guard to them putting all their cards on the table for some fun and games. Lastly, Harris can be seen holding his own mystery person at gunpoint on the open seas.
With a mix of sex, gambling and heaven, John and Steve prepare to take on the big bad villain when Steve proclaims, “Now, let’s get to work.” And so begins another chapter of “Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem.”
Watch the official trailer below.
As shown in the official key art below with the “B” and “H” weddings rings, the overall plot will center on Bo and Hope and their decades-long relationship in a tale filled with larger-than-life romance, jaw-dropping twists, and high-stakes drama that all connects back to a memorable plot that originated on “Days of our Lives” long ago.
