‘Days of Our Lives” Why We Won’t Be Seeing John Black For Awhile

Days of Our Lives John Black.


“Days of Our Lives” fans have gotten used to the idea that the character of John Black is officially a part of the ongoing storylines in Salem yet again. His romance with Marlena is back on track, and he’s developing a relationship with Paul, the adult son he didn’t know he had until only recently, and he’s even started a new private investigative business with friend Steve Johnson.

However, all of those storylines will come to a startling halt for the foreseeable future as actor Drake Hogestyn, 62, had a terrible accident while working and suffered some pretty serious injuries. He’s reported to be doing well, but will be off work at “Days of Our Lives” until he’s fully recovered.

A source says that Drake was “severely injured at work about six weeks ago and due to the many injuries he sustained, he has been written out of the show for an unspecified period of time to allow him to heal from his injuries.”

We’re all wishing Drake a speedy recovery!

Drake Hogestyn returns to ‘Days’ on March 4

John Black is back in Salem, or at least he will be on March 4. Marlena’s hubby will return to “Days of Our Lives” and fans of the actor couldn’t be happier.

This is a great time for John to return to Salem as his son, Brady Black, is in the middle of a huge downward spiral thanks to his addiction issues.

Will John, who is a former drug addict, be able to get Brady off the booze? Nicole, Eric, Daniel, Victor, and Maggie have all tried unsuccessfully, so maybe John will be the one to kick Brady’s butt into gear.

However, something tells us that that Brady won’t be very happy to see John when he returns. The father and son have some bad blood between them, namely Kristen DiMera, but it’s about time they put all that aside, right?
