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. Kassie DePaiva as… Read more »

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.

18 – 19 months.. here we come

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.

Peter Reckell Reflects On His Time As DAYS Iconic Bo Brady, Life In New Zealand & Christmas Music Project

Last week, Days of our Lives  turned 55-years young, and the historic long-running NBC daytime drama series has been home to some of the most memorable stars and characters of the soap opera genre, perhaps none more so than anti-hero Bo Brady played by Peter Reckell.

Reckell who appeared on the show for several runs that lasted over four decades, premiered as Bo back in 1983.  He then stayed through 1987, came back from 1990 to 1992, again from 1995 to 2012, and back again in 2015 during DAYS 50th anniversary and to wrap his run as Bo, when the character was killed-off, after Reckell made it clear that he wanted to give the audience closure for the character.  He later made another return in 2016 to help the character of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) move on with her life.  Hard to believe for all of those heart-tugging performances, Peter was nominated only once for a Daytime Emmy.

Photo: JPI

In this candid, deeply personal and enlightening new interview for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube, Reckell opens up as to: what led to many of the decisions he made throughout his time as Bo, how he helped craft the role from the start, the accident that almost took his life, how he handled all the fame that came his way as part of the Bo and Hope supercouple pairing, and how two women in the cast; the late Frances Reid (Alice) and Peggy McCay (Caroline) made lasting impressions on him that he will carrying with him for the rest of his life.

Photo: JPI

What would Peter say if somehow DAYS wanted him back and Bo was actually alive and well?  Find out as Peter weighs-in and wishes his former show a happy anniversary  In addition, he even shares how he felt when Robert Kelker-Kelly took over the role of Bo when he decided to leave the show at one point, and his time playing Johnny on primetime’s Knots Landing.

Photo: JPI

Reckell has moved his family to New Zealand, and this conversation was conducted from his home.  Peter is married to singer/songwriter/producer Kelly Moneymaker and the couple have a daughter, Loden.   It was not wanting to miss the moments of his daughter’s life growing up that has been much of the impetus for some of Peter’s career choices.

Photo: BlueAeris

With Christmastime approaching, Kelly and Peter are part of a brand new Christmas LP entitled Joy.  The album is now available for download on Spotify, Apple Music and major music streaming platforms.

In an exclusive during the interview, we give fans a sneak peek of Peter’s new music video for “Under the Mistletoe”, the song he sings that appears on Joy, which was written by his wife.  For more on the album project visit BlueAegis.com
