Drake Hogestyn Returning To DAYS OF OUR LIVES

Drake Hogestyn, who last aired as John Black on DAYS OF OUR LIVES in June, returns to the studio today to begin taping new episodes, according to Soap Opera Digest.

Despite not appearing on the show, fans continued to vote for him in droves in the weekly We Love Soaps Top 10 Actors list.

Hogestyn will begin airing again in early 2014.

In the August 12, 2013 issue of Digest, DAYS Executive Producer Ken Corday indicated there was a good chance Hogestyn would be back, adding, "I consider him one of the iconic characters in Salem and someone who can come and go because John Black is a superspy, know all-do all."

  2. Hmm didnt really care if he came back or not I just hope they dnt make Marlena feel like she need to depend on John I like her better without a spouse
    #My Opinion...

  3. I have to admit I like this independent Marlena. This was the character that I remember and love. Deidre has gotten to a chance to interact with other characters instead of it being John Black centric.

    2. I think they should try to get Peter Reckell back also. In fact him and John along with Marlena and Hope make the show interesting with there adventurous story lines.

  8. I can not wait to see Drake again. I stopped watching Days. Writers get it right this time. I liked Drake because he is extremely handsome, dangerous , hero. I would like to see him come back with more adventures storylines ,multiple romances, and into the spy business with Hope

  10. I am glad John is coming back and I want him back with Marlena. They belong together and should not have let Kristen break them up.

  13. Bo first, John whenever. Or never... for that matter...Kristian Alfonso is wasting away without Peter Reckell, but Diedre Hall if just fine without Drake.

  14. why can,t you get bo back and also patch when they were on the scene they allways had a pot cooking. When Shane came to town the plots thickenens . Wake up lets get your ratings up . I remember you once put on a play and all the characters sang or perfrom some act and it was great. Why can,t you do that again and bring back some of the old characters. Get the young ones involved .My family talked about it for a couple of years and loved every minute please bring them back . thankyou

  21. OM MY GOD, thank goodness Drake is coming back to DAYS, I haven't watched this show since his final scene aired but once I see a return date for him, I'll start watching Days again. He is a great actor and there isn't another character as enjoyable to watch as John is!

  32. Thank you for bringing Drake back to days. It has been too long since he left. I haven't watched days. Doc and John belong together. DOOL is not the same without him. Now I can watch my favorite soap again. JOHN IS BACK!!!! AWESOME!!!!! 2014 is going to be the bomb.

  33. Please, please, DOL writers, give John his old personality back!!!

  34. Since I have to endure that insipid Theresa, why not bring back Kim and Shane? How about Patch? Kayla needs a love interest...sadly Peter Reckell, won't be back, but I miss John, so happy he'll be back!!! Love the new interest between EJ and Abby! Hate the ne Eric...just not interesting and way too feminine...
