Soap Cities Scoop: Matthew Ashford Back on Days Set!

Matthew Ashford, Jack Deveraux on Days of Our Lives.

No, Days of Our Lives fans, your eyes don’t deceive you! Matthew Ashford is set to return to the NBC sudser!

Cupcakes and Cuties

A hairstylist on the Days crew and fan of the soap posted a pic from the Days set of Matthew Ashford taping scenes in the Facebook group that’s THE place to be if you’re a Days of Our Lives fan, one admin-ed by none other than Marcia Howell Hensley. We’re proud to call her part of the Soap Cities team, and her group is Days of Our Lives, Secrets Revealed.

The pic shows a table loaded with yummy cupcakes and behind the table is Ashford on a screen showing a feed from the set.

Anyway, it looks like Jack is back! Or will be approximately six months from now, given Days‘ unusual taping-airing lead time of six months. Jack also appears to be talking to Shawn (Brandon Beemer)–juicy!

So Many Questions!

Is Jack alive? Or will he appear to a loved on in a dream, as he did for Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) during his last Days appearance?

Don’t Miss: Jordi Vilasuso spoke out on his departure from the soap.

Ron Carlivati isn’t afraid to do out-of-the-box things like bring fan faves back from the dead, so the Salem hero could very well be alive, don’t you think, dear readers?

An Impressive Daytime Resume

Ashford not only entered Days fans hearts as the handsome, kind, charming…uh, where were we? Oh, right, he’s not only an alum of Days, but Ashford’s also played memorable roles on General Hospital and One Life to Live.

Also: See what Ron Carlivati has in store for his version of the NBC sudser.

He’s garnered a Daytime Emmy award nomination and five Soap Opera Digest awards for his work in soaps.

  1. Oh please let him be alive and on the show for a very long time. He was one of my favorite characters on the show and Jennifer can have a bigger part.

    • Don’t let him come back as a ghost,let him be alive. Would love to see him & Jennifer back together. E

    OMG! ARE YOU KIDDING? Can the Riders not think of another story line besides bringing in twins for Adrian and Marlena? This is a Farfetch’d off-the-wall storyline it is very boring. Adrian is fought cancer gone through divorce lost his son can you at least let her get some privacy and her and Jennifer succeed in running the newspaper? This type of story line with look-alikes is very boring and total ridiculous till it some point it is funny not like a true serious soap opera. Please try another storyline or I’ll just stop watching and I’ve been watching for over 50 years. Riders think of something else maybe trying to get Abby and Chad back together and damos in prisons that’d be a good one. Since the Doug and Julie days when couples were happy and together for years all y’all have written about is how couples are separated couples that we like and love. Go back to the days of Julie and Doug.

  3. Fingers, toes crossed in looking for the start to align and #bringbackjack @matthew_ashford to Salem for Good – Alive and Well and ready to be a central character with Jennifer, his kids, his Johnson family. Hoping he comes back as his 1980/90’s version and gives some of these so called lethario types a run for their money -all the while making Jennifer fight for his love . A true angsty storyline for our favorite #1 Super couple.
