Days of Our Lives is not giving up Hope, as star Kristian Alfonso has inked a new deal to remain with the NBC soap.

“I love my Days family, I love my job and I love our fans,” the actress said in a statement obtained by The Hollywood Reporter (who first broke the news).

Alfonso has portrayed fan-fave Salem detective Hope Williams Brady — and half of the super-couple, Bo and Hope — since 1983, after the character suffered a case of Soras (that’s “Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome,” for the uninitiated).
