Melissa Reeves Back To DAYS!

Look for Melissa Reeves to reprise the role of DAYS’s Jennifer at the holidays. The news was first reported by Kelli Gustafson on Twitter (, who met Melissa, her husband, Scott Reeves (ex-Steven, GH et al), and daughter Emily at a fan event in Tennessee. “Missy will be back for the Christmas episode,” she posted, then responded to other tweets, adding, “She said she was coming back for that ep but I didn’t push her for more info. I really wish I would have though…. She said she’ll be there for ornament hanging! This is a Christmas miracle.” Reeves, who first joined the soap in 1985, opted not to return when DAYS resumed production in September 2020 post-lockdown, staying closer to home where both of her children, Emily and Larry, welcomed sons. Cady McClain (ex-Dixie, ALL MY CHILDREN et al) stepped into the role and won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Guest Performer.
