In the January 4, 2016 issue of <em>Soap Opera Digest</em>, on newsstands now, "Days of our Lives" executive producer <strong>Ken Corday</strong> revealed the reasons behind the soap's decision to bring back actor <strong>Brandon Beemer</strong> (ex-Owen Knight, "The Bold and the Beautiful") to the role of Shawn Douglas Brady, the eldest child of Hope (<strong>Kristian Alfonso</strong>) and Bo (<strong>Peter Reckell</strong>), so soon after the blink-and-you-missed-it return and departure of original adult portrayer <strong>Jason Cook</strong>.

With new head writers on the horizon it was inevitable that "Days of our Lives" would also be getting a new teen scene, especially with what executive producer <strong>Ken Corday</strong> <a href="http://www.tvinsider.com/article/34392/first-look-days-of-our-lives-grows-a-new-teen-set-practically-overnight" target="_blank">says</a> to <em>TV Insider</em>'s <strong>Michael Logan</strong> of something his late mother, Betty, used to share with him: "'You have to water the roots of the [Days of our Lives]<em> </em>tree with a new generation every 10 years or so' and that’s what we’ve done," notes Corday to Logan. "These are the children of the children of the children of the children, and they are vital to our future."
