Days of Our Lives comings and goings report SORAS kids abound soon plus Justin Kiriakis sticks around with contract news for Wally Kurth. There’s also more hot Philip Kiriakis recast chatter to share. As November sweeps kicks off, Salem does a time jump forward and that changes many things to come. Here’s a look at the hottest DOOL casting news for the NBC soap.
Days of Our Lives Comings and Goings: Arianna Horton & David Ridgeway Fast Forward
DOOL spoilers promise Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome (SORAS) hits Salem hard when the time jump happens in early November. The show moves a year forward which means Sarah Horton (Linsey Godfrey) and Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk) may have babies in their arms – pending any complications.
And Arianna Horton’s about to be older as Harper Udell and Sydnee Udell depart after six years in the role. There’s a SORAS coming as Arianna goes from six to who knows how old. We’ll find out soon. Also, Days of Our Lives comings and goings say the Ellis Twins are done as David Ridgeway. Because, he’ll be much older soon, too.
As they're about to recast Arianna Horton (Gabi and Will's daughter), David Ridgeway (Jordan's son and Ben's nephew) will also be recast. These little guys are so CUTE! #DAYS pic.twitter.com/qKoEfYQmIW

DOOL Casting: Justin Kiriakis Staying – Wally Kurth on Contract
Although Days of Our Lives comings and goings are always a revolving door, it looks like it’s opened for Justin Kiriakis. First, he puts a ring on Adrienne Kiriakis (Judi Evans) and then it’s wedding time. But then, Justin Kiriakis stays put because he’s now officially on contract. At least for now – because you never who lives, days, and leaves on DOOL.
For a while now, Wally Kurth’s done double duty as Justin Kiriakis on Days of Our Lives and also Ned Quartermaine on General Hospital. But now, he’s around both before and after this time jump on DOOL. And it looks like Justin married Adrienne before Salem takes a leap into the sci-fi future with this bizarre soap shakeup, say Days of Our Lives comings and goings.

Days of Our Lives Casting News: Philip Kiriakis Recast Teased
DOOL casting info also teases Philip Kiriakis may be back to DOOL. Casting news shows Kate Roberts actress Lauren Koslow posted a pic of her with Jay Kenneth Johnson from 1999-2012. He originated the role of Philip Kiriakis and then out of the blue, had a pic of herself with her on-screen son. Plus, several characters name-dropped Philip Kiriakis a lot lately.
So, Days of Our Lives comings and goings hint he might be back. Last to play the role was John-Paul Lavoisier but he’s been gone a while. So, there’s a question of when (and if) Philip Kiriakis will be back and how long Justin Kiriakis remains in Salem this time. Watch for these and other changes coming for November sweeps on DOOL on the NBC soap.
