The actress has inked a new deal to remain with NBC's Days of Our Lives, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively, putting to rest speculation that the fan favorite would depart the series.
From Corday Productions and Sony Pictures Television, Alfonso has portrayed Hope Williams (later Hope Williams Brady) since 1984, playing a wife, mother and detective and has picked up Daytime Emmy nominations for her role.
“I love my Days family, I love my job and I love our fans,” Alfonso said.
Alfonso's new deal comes the same day that the long-running NBC soap opera received a series best 15 Daytime Emmy nominations, including for outstanding drama series and for lead actress Crystal Chappell.

Days marked its 46th year on the air in November. Alfonso's decision to remain with the series comes as Days has welcomed back stars of yesteryear, with Charles Shaughnessy and Lisa Rinna returning to the series this year.
