·3 min read

EXCLUSIVE: Peacock’s Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem will bring back Eileen Davidson, who is the latest Days of Our Lives alum to join the limited series. She will join Lisa Rinna, Deidre Hall, Drake Hogestyn, Jackée Harry, James Reynolds and others.

The limited series is set over a long weekend, when John and Marlena travel to Zurich; Ben and Ciara have a romantic getaway in New Orleans; Chad visits some old friends in Phoenix; and Abe, Paulina, Lani, and Eli vacation in Miami. All find themselves embroiled in a mystery involving stolen jewels that, in the wrong hands, could have dire consequences for Salem. It’s a race against time for ISA agent Billie Reed (Rinna) as she crosses the globe in search of this missing treasure.
