They can be renewed another year doesnt exactly mean anything…they still can cancel the series…they had done that with prime time shows….of course they might have to pay something…but hopefully they wont and keep the show on…Days is my favorite soap at the moment

Whatever happened to the renewal requirement a few years back that the filming move closer to the broadcast date?

Steve

While that definitely makes more sense, logistically, it would be hard to do. The whole cast and crew would have to be laid off for 4 months. Or, a gradual schedule of filming fewer episodes for 6 months to a year which would not be budget friendly.

That was never a requirement for renewal. What NBC stated was that they wish DAYS would shorten it’s tape to air schedule. What NBC neglected to say was DAYS can shorten it if NBC gave more money.

??? wasn’t even thinking about .. well… truly… about renewal… I’m always thinking we have until late 2018… add another year

that’s roughly 19 MORE MONTHS… sounds longer, right ?

Salute : “Thank You NBC / SONY !!!! ”

I LOVE this SHOW so much

Great news! I wish that DOOL would get longer extension, but I will take another year. The one wish is to have more sets. I would rather see a smaller cast and see the actors in their own homes. It is sad that too many conversations happen in the park or Horton Square. Let’s see Steve and Kayla’s house again. Let’s see the apartment where Ben lived.

Thrilled to know I can visit Salem at least until Fall 2019! The show is in a good place. I, too, wish they didn’t tape so far ahead. It hurts the show creatively, but I know it is cost effective. Unfortunately, right now, $$ wins.

DAYS has earned it’s renewal. They got the best writing team on the block and the cast has stepped up to the task. There are a few bad cast members but overall — way up to the top –. Glad I get another year of Ron and his writing teams work.

Best show ever.I never miss an episode.How can I?With all of the stuff going on with Abby-Gabby makes for a very interesting Story. I know all about mental illness.believe me it isn’t easy living with it.Now for Brady I use to like him now I cannot stomach the guy .Although I have this sneaky feeling that Eve is onto him Keep up the great work you are doing for Days.I will be watching you.Hey I even got my friend interested now she loves the Abby-Gabby story.

I keep going back and forth…. is that a tell tale sign of good writing she knows… she doesn’t . to me it looks like he’s falling for her. I thought it telling… when his son… showed Brady … a valentines card for him and Mommy…. Theresa !!!! as Eve looked on. AND Brady may be overlooking his texts from grand dad Victor. and hopefully just acting out “overheard” conversations DANG doesn’t Kassie DePaiva LOOK SO GOOD. if there is ONE character – I am anxiously waiting – for their own Story… BECAUSE she deserves an EMMY.

PS: Marci Miller… has run the gamut from homely, bohemian, Cheryl Tiegs, to Gabs, to HOT.

LOL.. I watched yesterday show.. as she emerged dripping in red w/black hair.. LOOKING STUNNING

what can one say more ? Abigail Horton Devereaux DiMera.

her poised natural take after take… I have no complaints and only want her to be a shoe in for Best Lead Actress as a newbie. she has to make the top 5 .

Marci Miller has been wonderful to watch. I liked her even before she had the opportunity to show off all these different sides to her personality/acting skills! I venture to say she’s doing as good a job as Erika Slezak ever did on OLTL. (truth be told I thought Erika was sometimes way over the top and a tad corny.) But I have to disagree with you on the “homely” bit. In my opinion she’s flawless. Even in her pale, natural state she kinda illuminates, radiates flawless skin, beautiful eyes…She’s more “dynamic” when she puts on bolder colors, wardrobe, makeup…but… Read more »

Great news! I wish they renewed for at least the next two years. Back in the day you never even thought of cancellation; you just expected these “worlds” to be there always…

I”M so glad there were no threads of “anticipation” . I forgot… whew! I had every reason to expect as much… Thanks to Ron Carlivati and HIS TEAM.

Great news and well deserved! The ratings for Days have surged lately and the show is on fire. Days really is the best soap on and has been since Ron C’s stories started last summer.

I’m not surprised by this news because I love everything they’ve been doing on the show. Only thing i wish for is for the show to be less far ahead in the production schedule. Never understood what the deal was being 6 months ahead in production.

Hopefully, NBC will give more money to DAYS once that horrible Megyn Kelley is cancelled. What a waste of so much money for a dud show. How does the Peacock network not understand that we dont want hours and hours of boring talk shows. We want our soaps to remain. Hell, bring on another 30 minute soap like Bold and Beaut…i’m sure people would show an interest….

I forgot Megyn Kelly has a talk show. Stupid of NBC to give a talk show that both liberals and conservatives can’t stand. You are correct, they have too many talk shows, and most don’t last more than a season.

Love this news! Daytime drama is a wonderful valid genre. Really, without what would daytime TV be? Too much talk, courtroom, news, and trash already. Why not solid dramatic programming in daytime?

Maybe NBC can see value in Ron C and launch a new show, even a pair of half hours with online connections? Develop THE BAY or one of the other successful efforts.

Now if nbc would only pour $$$ into modernized sets and advertisements !.. Days fans are a 50 + year loyal audience but have to suffer through recycled office and park bench scenes but yet nbc has $$ for crap like the megan kelly hour?.. Shame on nbc

Soaps are astronomical to produce which is why most of them are off the air. They have no budget to modernize sets; would rather they focus on being able to afford to keep it going.

NBC does not own the show. It negotiates a fee to broadcast the show from Sony and Corday. It’s up to them (not NBC) to determine how the budget is spent. They can try to negotiate a higher fee from NBC, but that’s highly unlikely.

The only current soap owned by a network is GH.

Agree that hopefully the better ratings and the renewal will bring on better sets. NBC should be cutting Megyn Kelly, they were so stupid to bring on someone that no one can stand.

I’m not that surprised by this news because i think it would have leaked if NBC was even considering cancelling Days.However even though NBC just renewed Days for more year there could be something in the renewal that says they could renew it for a second year come next year like i think they did the last time they renewed Days.

Great news , congratulations to the cast and crew!!!
Now hopefully we can see some of the other sets ???
Hopes house; Steve and Kaylas house, The Spectator offices ;
Can some of the characters eat at a table at home??
Enough use of the Horton Town Square; the Police Station, and that park bench,,!

what also happened was Megan Kelly failed on NBC.
But I think Days Carlivati has to answer to his poor taste in using john’s pathetic reasoning regarding poisoning Steve as we currently keep reading in the news how putin kills agents using poison. I think the bad taste of this writer needs to be acknowledged and he must issue apologies. At the very least John should not be held by other characters as having done the right thing but instead held accountable for his failure to trust and warn his partner Steve and that he did the wrong thing.

Chrishell Stause Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.

Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Chrishell returning to DAYS to raise some hell for Kate and company? Comment below.
