'Days of Our Lives' Cast News: New Faces & Old Favorites Appearing In Salem, How Are Eve & New Character Fitting Into Storyline? [VIDEO]
With the return of some familiar faces and the appearance of new ones, things are going to continue getting interesting in Salem
Salem is about to get some more new faces-and see the return of another fan favorite, as Days of Our Lives makes some changes to its current cast.
Following the departure of Jen Lilley as Theresa (she left the canvas in an effort to protect her husband Brady and son Tate from a dangerous man involved in her past), Salem is in need of some Donovan related drama, and will hopefully get it from her sister Eve (Kassie DePaiva), as she reportedly makes her long-awaited return to Salem after she was unexpectedly written off earlier this year.
According to Soap Central, DePaiva will be back as Eve on Dec. 9, though it is unclear how long she will be back for, and what exactly her arc will consist of.
It is unknown if DePaiva has successfully beat a recent cancer diagnosis, which she disclosed to fans a few months ago.
Meanwhile, other faces will also be gracing Salem with their presence, and they will be new ones to the town. As Hope (Kristian Alfonso) spends time in jail following her conviction for murdering Stefano DiMera, the former cop will find that she's not quite welcome behind bars with the other inmates. And according to Entertainment Weekly, Tionne 'T-Boz' Watkins of the 90s group TLC, will be portraying the role of Sheila, a dangerous inmate who has her sights set on terrorizing Hope. She has already premiered, and her appearance also coincides with Marlena look-a-like (also portrayed by Deirdre Hall) Hattie making an appearance behind the prison's walls as well.
Former Glee star Dot-Marie Jones will also soon appear on the show as a part of the prison storyline, as another inmate named Chille.
Days of Our Lives airs Monday-Friday at 1 p.m. on NBC.
