I'm okay with Jack coming back as some kind of ghost. Shakespeare used a ghost to bring back Hamlet's father, Dickens brought back Scrooge's dead business partner as a ghost. In the right hands, it can work well.
What if Jack Deveraux is really alive again? Hope there's a good explanation.
What do you think, would you want Jack to be alive after all, or have past soap opera "resurrections" soured you on the idea of a back-from-the-dead Jack Deveraux? Please leave me a comment in the comments section, below. Especially if there's some third possibility you think is viable.
As for actor Ashford, he also stars currently in The Bay, an indie series with ISA and Emmy wins. Matthew Ashford returns to the Days of our Lives set this week.
When will Jack return to Days? Since the production is 5-6 months ahead, look for the first episode of Days of our Lives with Matthew Ashford back as Jack Deveraux to air in May 2016. We'll post updates here on We Love Soaps as we confirm the airdate.
Here's the original story at TV Insider.
Read about when Ashford was axed, along with Sarah Brown and others, back in 2010:
