Kyler Pettis inadvertently announced his Days of Our Lives departure as Theo Carver, when he posted his final scenes on his Vimeo account and tweeted it with a link Tuesday.

The 24 year-old actor’s video was quickly made private and then deleted from his account shortly thereafter.

SORAS’ed Salem Teen Scene!

The character of Theo was aged less than two years ago during the 50th Anniversary of Days when Pettis replaced Terrell Ransom, Jr. in the role.  Theo is the son of the late Dr. Lexie Carver and Salem Police Commissioner Abe Carver.   He was part of the SORAS’ed teen scene along with Claire Brady, Ciara Brady, Chase Jennings (ex-Jonathon McClendon) and Joey Johnson.

With the show taping six months in advance, we can expect to see these goodbye scenes with Pettis sometime early next year.

So dear readers, what do you think about Pettis’ departure as Theo from the show?  Will he be missed or should he be recast?

      • No way. Abe has been there ever since the 80s when I started to watch this show. There is history there. Theo can go for a year and return or be recast later. I hope to see more scenes with Chloe. And Brady character is so awesome!!!!! wth… lol. But 2018 is full of surprises. So glad Viviane is back. She is a good villainess and we need one back in Days right now.

      • Agree, Abe and Brady can leave. I’ve been watching since the 80’s myself, but I’ve never cared for Abe’s character, annoying if anything, and Brady has gotten to the point of annoyance as well, and it has been lingering for too long. I miss the old Brady. Flaws on people’s characters is not a bad thing, as it gives storylines, but this one has been burnt beyond.

  1. Keep Theo, and in a year bring him back. Kyler is great as Theo he’s made the part his. We have lost so many good actors lately it’s time that it’s enough.

    • Please if theo comes back please don’t recast we love this theo . He handsome and s great actor , writers please listen to your viewers

      • Kyler is my favorite character on this now ridiculous show. I hope that he is leaving on his own accord and that if this damn show ever gets real, he will return.

      • Pleasr do not get rid of Theo, there has been to many bring back the dead and psychopaths this season. You are not just getting rid of Theo but altering so many others lives. Enough is Enough. Please git rid of Kate and Brady.

    • I agree. Just please do not kill him off and then want to bring him back. Enough with the dead coming back to this soap.

      • i want to know when Bo will come back from the dead….again. And the real Stephano Dimera. It’s going to happen. I kinda want to know what is gonna happen now that Will is brought back from the dead. I was getting used to him being dead. Not sure if I want to see Will & Paul together. Thats boring.

        • The real Stefano DiMera played by Joseph Mascolo died in 2016, so cannot bring his character back because no one could EVER play that part as wonderfully as he did. In my humble opinion.

  2. Hate to see him leave, great actor, played the part of Theo so good. He will be missed. Hope that he will come back to continue this role.

  3. He is definitely one of the characters I hate to see go. This young man is excellent at portraying Theo I hope the executives and the writers have a change of heart and leave things as they are or just have him on a short hiatus.

  4. Just love Kyler as Theo, what a great actor and so believable. Would not like to see him recast, hope he will be brought back in the year as suggested.

    • I agree. If he feels or if it’s your decision to let him go, please do not kill him off. Send Theo to a different hospital for extra care/healing. Please bring him back. He is a great individual, a part of Days… Sad to see him go…

    • Yes!!! Please get rid of Claire. No offense…but it would have been good if we could hear her singing live more often…She has awesome hairstyles. But I dont like Theo and Claire combo. It doesn’t click

  5. Guys , if Kyler wants to leave the show then that’s his decision, ‘NOT!!!!” yours, I totally understand that you guys likes him as Theo but if he wants to leave, then there’s “NOTHING!!!!” we can do about it, cause it’s HIS!!!! decision, not yours or mine, it’s “HIS” so can you guys please let this guy live his life and move on? gosh. sick and tired of seeing all these “let Kyler keeping playing Theo when he gets back comments” let this men live his life for heaven’s sake. not everybody every actor or actress is going to last in Days forever you know?, some of the characters are gonna leave Salem and some of them are going be “KILLED!!!!” off. that happens in ALOT!!! of daily drama series.

    • The question was asked and fans have answered… we all love the role Kyle Pettis has played as Theo Carver and would Love to see him come back. No need to have a meltdown because of this. It is understood that when an actor chooses to move on, it is their choice to do so, but given the option to come back when they’re ready, and giving the fans a choice if they want them back or replaced, we, the fans, are voicing our opinion that we would Love to have him come back instead of replaced. Can you live with that?

      • Exactly. Well stated. I am not sure if “Theo” left to pursue other things on his own. But I sure hope so. He did well in this role. And if he returns without being recast that would be great 🙂

    • Yes Yes you are right. I have been watching days for many many years. Yes I am sadden to see Kyler leave the show as well as many others that have left the show. But we have to remember that this is a job to these actors and they sometimes want move on to do other things, just as you and i do every day. Some of these actors are not going to stay for ever. I am sadden to see him go, but wish him well, Where ever life takes him he will do well. Hoping to see him on other shows. Days producers and writers please recast…..Kyler continue to following dreams.

        Nowhere but what I’m trying to say is what if he wants to leave the show? I mean it’s no ones desicion but his. If he wants to leave he shw then that’s his decision. He can do whatever he want in his life. We can’t tell him what to do. Cause it’s his decision not ours. If he wants o leave then that’s up to him. Not up too us. Besides no one is going to last on Days forever some of the characters are going to leave town and even KILLED. It happens in alotof daily drama series. And the news doesn’t has too say that it’s his decison. We all knkw that it’s his decision if he wants too leave the show. It’s obvious. And no it’s not an interpretation, it’s just my opinion. Cause if Kyler wants to leave the show then that’s his decision not ours. Everyone needs to live there own life. It’s our decision if Kyler wants to leave it’s “HIS!!!!!!!!!!”

      • Heinrich (Heintje) Karg

        It does have too be said in the news cause it’s obvious I mean if he wants to leave the show then that’s his desicion and not ours cause it’s his life and he can do whatever he wants

        • Heinrich, you keep melting over this. Lighten up. We can not assume that it’s always their decision, as it’s been done before that sometimes they do let them go, and not always their choice to leave. Case in point, Shawn Christian. You have it right, if an actor wants to leave and try something else, by all means, it’s their right, but when we, the fans, are asked what results we’d like to see about the possibility to recast or wait for a possibility of return, we give our opinions as we feel them. Upon reading the article, it seems to me that there is a posibility that Kyler Pettis needs some time off days but if his role is still open, he is considering returning. That was my understanding from what I read, but it wasn’t necessary specific. If that is the case, I can see why a lot of us are saying that we’d rather wait for him to be ready to return, rather than to have him recast. If he doesn’t want to return, then we can support him on his decision and wish him well.

  6. I was under the impression he was coming back inside a year no one gonna b able to nail this role like him.i hope the writers think this out

  7. I do not understand the reasoning behind this decision .Hope he survives the gun shot ,and stays on ,he is a wonderful character

    • Exactly. Well stated. I am not sure if “Theo” left to pursue other things on his own. But I sure hope so. He did well in this role. And if he returns without being recast that would be great 🙂

  8. Please bring him back. I love this young man. He can’t be replaced at all. So please don’t try to replace him. If you have to pay him more money then do it!! He’s GREAT!!!

  9. I wouldn’t be surprised if the character of Theo is off screen just for a bit.This wouldn’t be the first time Days writes a character off temporarily because they need to move other things along and they can’t do it while that character is onscreen.For example while Theo is off screen maybe Claire and Tripp start getting together and then just as they do Theo returns.So i wouldn’t be surprised if the show brings Theo back sooner rather than later but whether it’s Kyler Pettis or a new actor playing him is to be determined.

    • Marilynn P Dozier

      I think Theo Carver should stay and he should come out of his come soon and reveal that Kate is the one that is responsible for him being shot and in a coma.

  10. please keep Kyler Pettis as Theo….love him as that character….don’t let him leave please…He is a great actor…makes his lines believeable….

  11. Stop. Bring back the character of Theo whether he has to be recasted or hopefully same actor. So sick of killing off people or bringing them back to life. You may be losing viewers if this continues.

    • I’m not sure that I agree that killed characters keep coming back. Many ppl return like Austin and Carrie and Sami and Belle and Shawn and Phillip but none of them were killed off. So Theo is luckily not being killed off. Joey also was not killed off just sent to prison. So bringing characters back is more realistic that way. But once in a while characters have to die. I think it’s great when characters can come back from the dead and spruce up some storylines… It’s a soap opera. That happens here. Lol…Good luck to Kyle. Claire & Tripp will be better than Theo & Claire…but I think Claire should be written off. Hope Nicole comes back at some point!!!

  12. I agree with the comments that you should simply replace him. too many other characters depend on his story line continuing.

  13. Recast him so he can be brought back later. Hes such a sweet kid. Why does the cast have to keep going through so many changes. We just get to love them , then there gone.

    • Keep this Theo! Don’t bring in another actor for the role. Please get rid of the new Sierra.She is terrible in the role. Ring back the original Sierra that just left.Thanks

  14. Please keep Theo!!! Plz don’t recast him, this Theo is so sweet and kind he is so loyal and honest!!!! We Love this Theo!!!!!

  16. Hmmm…everyone here loves Kyler as Theo. There is not one person who said the role can be recast…Is this site rigged in Kyler’s favour? I hope the moderators are not biased.

  17. In Salem teens should play young and vulnerable. Kyle pulled it off perfectly – played a well functioning autistic college teen. Why fire all these teens that are developing into wonderful characters? GIVE THEM A CHANCE! You are instead bringing back way too many “over 55’s” returning to Salem. I enjoyed the freshness of the teen stories. I miss Joey. The Joey and Jade story had promise. And so did Chase. Why did Chase have to become such a creep then sent away? He was sweet once and believable as Ciara’s good friend.. The Ciara triangle with Claire and Theo seemed very authentic. It happens in real life. Why don’t you want to see innocent authentic teens? Days seems to fire these young actors and replace their character with 30ish actors like the new Ciara and Tripp. Neither look college age. If you wanted to invent a Tripp character to be Steve’s son , , Tripp should have arrived to Salem as a new doctor to replace Bo (he looks the age for it). Tripp does NOT fit well with sweet Claire. Claire’s character should be developed more age appropriately. Whatever happened to Chloe helping to make Claire a teen singing sensation? I’m hoping now that Chloe’s back in Salem, Claire will dive deep into her singing career with the kind help of Chloe and make it BIG. Claire WILL WAIT for her Theo (played by Kyle) to return to Salem. Why not have them get married when Kyle returns. They could start a family as teen parents but after Claire’s career has become established thanks to Chloe. Make Kyle’s and Olivia’s love story a beautiful one.

  18. I’d like to know if Kyler left on his own accord or did Days fire him? I sure hope they didn’t fire him. He did a great job as Theo. He is a talented young actor whom I will miss.

    Omg. I have never liked a young actor as much as Kyler. As Theo, he was absolutely great. I loved him as if he was my own flesh and blood son. The other day when they said Theo would have go to Africa for year I cried. I have never inquired about an actor leaving. I didn’t know it was his decision. All I know is this young man is an awesome actor and I would love to see him again when and if he decides to come back on days or wherever.He is just a young great actor.God bless you young man. You are one talented actor. Keep studying to be the best you can be. Love you. KYLER! .

  20. I would love to see him return after his year of rehab. Kyler plays this part so well. Cant imagine anyone else being Theo.
