When Will DOOL Stream On Peacock?
As confirmed by the broadcasting network, DOOL will stream on the platform starting September 12. The empty slot will be taken over by NBC’s News Daily starting next month. The producers of the show avoided cancelation of the soap opera on multiple occasions as NBC and Sony engaged in regular negotiations.
With this switch, American broadcast televisions will now have only three daytime soaps airing. These include ABC’s General Hospital, CBS’ The Bold And The Beautiful, and The Young And The Restless. The report of this transition was initially reported by Vulture on August 3, 2022.
Days Of Our Lives Characters Written Off The Show
Back in January 2022, TR Coates debuted on the soap opera, which is played by William Christian. He is the ex-boyfriend of Paulina Price, played by Jackee Harry, and Lani Price’s biological father, played by Sal Stowers. However, his stint in the soap ended after his own daughter killed him.
Apart from this, Abigail Deveraux also bid adieu to the show. She was killed off, giving the show a murder mystery storyline. Craig Wesley, Salem’s resident doctor, is also set to exit DOOL in 2022. Although the doctor will leave Salem, his daughter Chloe will stay for one more season.
Back in April 2022, reports of Ciara Brady and Ben Weston’s departure from Days Of Our Lives made headlines. Ben and Ciara welcomed a child in the story, after which fans saw the last of them as they started a new life in Canada. Additionally, Tripp Dalton’s stint ended in Season 57 after he jumped off a tower.
Eli, played by Lamon Archey, and Lani, played by Sal Stowers, also left Salem, effectively ending their part in the soap opera. They were last seen in the episode that aired on July 4, 2022. Next, on the July 27 episode, Jake DiMera was killed in a shooting.
DOOL Characters Returning In 2022
Last month, Heather Lindell who played Jan Spears, confirmed on Twitter that she isn’t returning to Days Of Our Lives after Jan drowned in the river.

However, on August 4, Jan’s character was revived to complicate the lives of Belle, Shawn, and Evan alongside other Salem residents. Another character revived for the soap opera is Stephanie Johnson, who will be played by Abigail Klein.
Apart from this, Paulina Price’s daughter Chanel Dupree is also heading to the show. Finally, prominent business Victor Kiriakis’ nephew, Xander, is also coming back for the soap opera’s upcoming episodes in 2022.
