Fans of Days of our Lives’ late ’90s/early ‘00s teen scene are in for a treat! The soap is launching its third digital series this Friday, November 29, with “Last Blast Reunion” which will stream exclusively on The DOOL App.
Although the innovative app is not available in Canada, a spokesperson for Corday Productions advises Canadian fans to let the broadcaster know of their interest in wanting the exclusive behind the scenes content and digital series that are available on the platform. DAYS fans can contact Global TV via their website (click here to send a message), social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) and email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Returning to the new location of the .Com cyber cafe after almost 20 years are Shawn Brady (Brandon Beemer), Belle Black (Martha Madison), Jan Spears (Heather Lindell), Jason Welles (Aaron Van Wagner), Chloe Lane (Nadia Bjorlin), and Susan Adamson (Lindsay Hollistar). Due to scheduling conflict, Teressa Liane will be stepping into the role of Mimi Lockhart (originally played by Farah Fath), while Chadwick Hopson will play Kevin Lambert (previously portrayed by both Brett Lawrence and Robert Benvenisti).
Viewers can also expect the surprise return of fan favourite! Many are speculating that it’ll be Philip Kiriakis (played by Jay Kenneth Johnson).
“We are excited to bring together some of the most beloved characters from Days of our Lives in the next DOOL App series,” said Greg Meng, co-executive producers of DAYS. “As this new digital platform continues to grow, we can provide exciting additional content to complement the air show on NBC.”
Written by DAYS head writer Ron Carlivati, in Last Blast Reunion, Belle and Chloe discover their old friend Kevin has reopened the .Com Café in New York, similar to the one at which they all used to gather at together 20 years earlier. The three of them decide to plan a reunion of the “Last Blast Crew,” and a week later they are joined by Susan, Shawn and Mimi and the friends reminisce and quickly ease back into their old bonds and rivalries. Two people, Jan (did she ever wake up from her coma?) and Jason, are missing from this get-together but will soon join in this long-awaited reunion. The story takes an unexpected turn with some shocking twists that will keep viewers at the edge of their seats all the way to the surprise ending!
Last Blast Reunion premieres this Friday on The DOOL App in the U.S. New episodes (7-10 minutes each) will drop each Thursday for the following seven weeks. The episodes will also be available on the NBC app and NBC.com one week after their debut on The DOOL App. Chad & Abby in Paris Chapters 1 & 2 are also available to stream on each platform.
Days of our Lives airs weekdays on NBC and Global.
