Fans of the long-running daytime soap series Days of Our Lives can expect “twists and turns” with their beloved world in their first Christmas movie slated to drop on Peacock on December 15.

The logline of the movie reads: “Days of Our Lives: A Very Salem Christmas follows Will Horton (Chandler Massey) as he writes a screenplay before his Christmas Eve deadline. Using everyone’s favorite feel-good holiday movie tropes, he creates a festive story based on his family and friends in Salem – but with several twists and turns you’ll never see coming.”

This Christmas movie is a continuation of Peacock’s Beyond Salem, a Days of Our Lives spinoff which aired five episodes in September. Salem featured current and former characters of the show around the country investigating stolen jewels.

The film-within-a-film concept will clearly lead to some wild twists of expectation on some of the soap’s favorite characters. We get teased with a humorous detail that Drake Hogeyston‘s mysterious spy character John Black will instead be running a winter inn.

Along with Hogeyston, DOOL veterans Eileen Davidson, Deirdre Hall and Allison Sweeney will appear in the film along with even more favorites.

Days of Our Lives airs Monday through Fridays on NBC. Episodes are also available to stream on Peacock for free.
