There’s another resident leaving Salem as Bo Brady will depart the city in the very near future; actor Peter Reckell is leaving NBC’s last remaining soap as the behind-the-scenes shake up continues. The actor confirmed his departure from Days via Twitter telling fans “Hard to say goodbye to characters who’ve been on 4ever!! Hard 2 believe Bo will be one of those shortly!”
There is currently no news on when the actor will make his last on-screen appearance as Bo Brady. The actor has played the character on-off since 1983 with his current stint in Days beginning in 1995.
The NBC soap has under-gone some changes this year as it attempts to revitalise its fortunes to stay on-air. Lorraine Broderick, Gary Tomlin and Christopher Whitsell have been drafted in as head-writers following the exits of Marlene McPherson and Darrell Ray Thomas Jr. after less than a year. After it was announced that new head-writers had been appointed news broke that four actors would also leave the NBC series; Matthew Ashford (Jack Deveraux), Patrick Muldoon (Austin Reed), Christine Clark (Carrie Brady) and Sarah Brown (Madison James). Earlier this month it was announced that Ian Buchanan was to leave the soap opera as well.
