Days of our Lives Renewed Says EP Ken Corday

Photo: NBC

There was breaking news from the set on Thursday at Days of our Lives.  According to Deadline, the series executive producer, Ken Corday announced to the cast that the show will continue on.  It appears the 54-year-old daytime drama series received a one-year pick-up.

The article cites that when reached for comment, NBC who airs the show, and SONY TV the show’s distributor had “no comment”. However their sources reveal that a deal is being close to being completed and “looking good”.

This comes as welcome news to longtime and new fans of the series, who were concerned for its cancellation after a story ran over the last ten days that the cast was let-go from their contracts.

Under head writer Ron Carlivati, the soap just launched its innovative daytime drama time-jump on November 8th where all the characters lives were fast-forwarded a year.

So, excited to hear that Salem and Days of our Lives will live on? Comment below.

This is the best news ever. I can’t imagine daytime without this crown jewel. But then, I said that about As the World Turns, Guiding Light, All My Children and One Life to Live and look what happened. I still miss Love of Life, The Secret Storm, The Edge of Night, Another world as well.

Thank G-d! I will say… I was a bit nervous but believed in the DAYS cast members who shared their assurance that the show would be renewed. We are blessed. Hopefully, this hiatus is about renewing the show, retooling and getting on an updated filming schedule like the other soaps. #GETYOURACTTOGETHERDAYS and I believe DAYS is #ISGETTINGTHEIRACTTOGETHER.

While this is good news, I don’t know how many more renewals there will be with the current steaming pile of dragonshit storylines.

I’m hoping the latest spin about the contracts & hiatus proves to be true…. and that would be that Days is taking a few months off so they can get off this 666% ridiculous taping schedule, which has made the episodes 8 months old before they even get to air, and therefore much harder to write your way out of a failed storyline.

Yay!!!!! I wish they’d renew for more than one year. Days is really rocking. Of the three I watch (Y&R, B&B) it is my fave.

SO happy to read this! While I’ve watched many soaps over the years (ANOTHER WORLD) being my all-time favorite, DAYS was where I started as a little kid. I wish we didn’t have to go year to year on these renewals.

I miss my favorite soaps, As the world Turns, Guiding Light, All my children, One life to live!
They were the best of the best. Days was on the bottom of my list but I suppose being a lover of soaps, at least we have a few to enjoy. I don’t understand why we don’t being back these wonderful stories or maybe a few new ones!

Great news, indeed! But I am distracted and must share this with you: As I write this comment, there is a link to a youtube video of an interview by Michael Fairman of Eric Martsolf and Stacy Haiduk. With all three cozying up in the photo and both men wearing form-fitting black T-shirts, it appears as though Martsolf’s left hand is holding Fairman’s left hand. Maybe it’s just an illusion. Maybe I’ve seen more than a few homoerotic (or, at the very least, ambiguous) DOOL scenes of a shirtless Brady Black. Maybe I was also influenced by just watching the… Read more »

Jamesj75 What is your point? I watched the video, after your comment and didn’t see any untoward touching of anything.E.M is a married man, and Michael I think has more class.

Hello there, Violet. My point is humor. I like humor. I like making humorous comments, not all the time, but some of the time…

So sorry you didn’t realize that… And I was only speaking of the still picture; I didn’t watch the interview. I certainly wasn’t seriously accusing anyone of unwanted touching. Just making (what I intended as) a humorous observation.

Alas, the perils of online commentary… And this confusion after a bit of an absence for me…

Michael is holding his own hand. Eric’s left arm is behind Michael. Yes, you’re seeing things that aren’t there.

Thanks for your reply, Momo. For the second time, let me clarify: I KNOW they weren’t holding hands. I said: “It appears as though….” If you (and the equally mystified Violet Lemm2) would read the entirety of my initial remarks, you might notice the humorous tone.

I guess it’s okay to quibble about these silly misunderstandings rather than get into heated political arguments (elsewhere at this site) or wax nostalgically about the glory days of soaps (as I’ve done previously). None of it holds much enjoyment anymore… (And there is no attempt at humor in my last paragraph.)

I did read it. FYI: Your humor did not translate.

The soaps are still good. Yes, times have changed, but I hope you can still find enjoyment in them. 🙂

Now, who was it that said Days would be cancelled?

viewer88
Guest
viewer88

Mary, the smoke and mirrors of this storey can be mind bending, so let’s just think about the facts. 1. Ken Corday owns Days, so he can renew it however, wherever he wants, neither NBC nor Sony have confirmed it’s renewed to my knowledge. 2. The cast has been released from their contracts. The writing, has been so rediculously stupid of late, that even the good actors look like they’re over acting. The only ones who will be back, are those who don’t find work elsewhere. 3. This ‘time jump’ that they’re hoping to save the show with??? Is only… Read more »

Mary, if you could post a link? to either NBC or Sony confirming it,…? Or are you in charge of these decisions.

It looks more like Ron C has turned it into roadkill. So many long time fans have given up just this week.

It’s likely Corday renewed it to survive in the app.???

When does this year renewal begin? They are eight months ahead, so basically half of 2020 is already accounted for. So is it a year after that or is really an order for six months worth of shows to finish up 2020? If the renewal begins after the already shot shows air, I would see that as a positive sign, but renewing a show for a year when most of the shows for that year are already in the can isn’t much of a commitment. But then again rumors of DAYS being cancelled have been around for years, and it… Read more »

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.
