‘Days of Our Lives’ Anniversary Footage Teases Patch and Bo Return (Video)

Watch out, Salem — there’s a serial killer, and some familiar faces, heading your way


There’s a serial killer coming to Salem — along with some familiar faces.

“Days of Our Lives” is heading toward its 50th anniversary, and in addition to a murderous storyline, the NBC soap is packing the lead-up to the big day with returning fan favorites.

A 50th Anniversary promo for “Days of Our Lives” offers brief, teasing glimpses of Peter Reckell and Stephen Nichols reprising their roles of Bo and Patch, respectively. This will mark Nichols’ first time back on the show since 2009, while Reckell has been absent since 2012.

Along with the returning characters, the promo showcases plenty of fighting, hooking up, life-threatening situations and lots of “I love you”s. Oh, and strings — lots of swelling violin strings to help put nostalgic tears in viewers’ eyes.

Watch it all unfold in the video.
