For fans that just can’t get enough “Days of Our Lives,” a digital series called “Last Blast Reunion” is premiering on The DOOL app on Black Friday.
Set in 2000, the digital series will feature characters played by the original actors who were in the roles at that time, as well as the surprise return of a fan favorite yet to be announced. Returning actors include Brandon Beemer (“Shawn Brady”), Martha Madison (“Belle Black”), Heather Lindell (“Jan Spears”), Aaron Van Wagner (“Jason Welles”), Nadia Bjorlin (“Chloe Lane”) and Lindsay Hollistar (“Susan Adamson”).
The role of “Mimi Lockhart,” originally played in the broadcast series by Farah Fath, will be played in “Last Blast Reunion” by Teressa Liane. The role of “Kevin Lambert” will be played by Chadwick Hopson, who replaces Brett Lawrence and Robert Benvenisti.
The episodes will be seven to 10 minutes in length, and will stream exclusively on The DOOL app starting Nov. 29, with new episodes being added every Thursday for seven weeks after. One week after they’re released on The DOOL app, they will begin streaming on the NBC app and NBC.com.
“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 producer of “Days of our Lives.” “As this new digital platform continues to grow, we can provide exciting additional content to complement the air show on NBC.”
