Soap fans in the Commonwealth saw this move coming
Virginia fans of Days of Our Lives you have been perceptive yet again. Once the NBC series moved to Peacock many of you said that the Beyond Salem spin-offs had been a way to get viewers to watch the streaming service in advance of the change. Some of you also said that once DOOL was established on Peacock there would be no need for Beyond Salem and you were right again.
Soaps in Depth has just revealed that Beyond Salem 2 and the Christmas episode have all been removed from Peacock but this is no surprise to longtime viewers. When the spin-offs first began airing some viewers were wondering what the purpose was but NBC remained mum. Now that the soap is on Peacock and viewers have been watching there is no need for Beyond Salem.
Some Days of Our Lives fans say they feel deceived and wish the streaming service had just been honest upfront. At this point, it is what it is but as far as many Virginia soap fans are concerned they were expecting it. On Reddit, viewers are complaining that they are paying for Peacock and should be able to watch the archived episodes.
