Melissa Reeves Was Not Fired From DAYS OF OUR LIVES

If you’ve been seeing reports online that Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) was fired from DAYS OF OUR LIVES, don’t worry — they’re not true. What happened was that TV Line posted a story on Monday evening that the actress was let go from the NBC soap and it was picked up by various other outlets like Yahoo.com. But the site later retracted their story, reporting that it was published “due to a technical error” and that Reeves has not been fired from DAYS.

Reeves joined the cast of DAYS as Jennifer Horton back in 1985, leaving in 1995 before returning again in 2000 for another run that lasted until 2006. The actress reprised the role again in 2010 when the soap paid tribute to the late Frances Reid’s character of Alice Horton, sticking around on a recurring basis before making it permanent.

Fans can take heart that Reeves is still with DAYS and will return with the rest of the cast when the soap resumes production during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. And because the soap taped so far ahead, brand-new episodes are still currently airing, so stay tuned to see what happens next!
