On August 28, Steve (Stephen Nichols) and Kayla's (Mary Beth Evans) son Joey, last seen as a 6-year-old, will pop up as a troubled teen played by newcomer James Lastovic. A new Ciara Brady (Vivian Jovanni) and Chase Jennings (Jonathon McClendon) will both arrive October 30. Then comes Theo Carver (Kyler Pettis) on November 3, followed by Claire Brady (Olivia Keegan) November 25.

The next generation of teens will share similarities with their parents. For example, Ciara will be like Hope, and Joey will be similar to Steve.

Executive producer Ken Corday tells TV Insider.“My late mom [Days executive producer Betty Corday] used to say, ‘You have to water the roots of the Days of our Lives tree with a new generation every 10 years or so,’ and that’s what we’ve done,” Corday notes. “These are the children of the children of the children of the children, and they are vital to our future."
