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.

Once i know for sure i will sigh relief but the show needs to be a continuing daytime drama and not Dr. Who..

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 season preview of EastSiders….

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…

Momo

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.)

Momo

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?

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 for fans. It’s way too confusing to bring in younger millenials.?
Maybe Corday is hoping Prospect Park will give it a go.?

Mary
Mary

The renewal of DOOL has been confirmed! You were saying?

viewer88
viewer88

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.???

Mary SF

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 hasn’t happened yet. It is like the energizer bunny, it keeps going and going. So I will hope for the best, but not be shocked if an cancellation order does come in 2020 at some point.

Hi, Mary SF!

The newest renewal starts from next September through September of 2021.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Wally Kurth & Chandler Massey Deliver Poignant Scenes As Justin Tells Will ‘Don’t Give Up On Life’

If you caught Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the scenes capturing the minds of DAYS viewers featured touching work from Wally Kurth (Justin) and Chandler Massey (Will).

In it, after seeing Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) in prison, Justin comes upon Will, the man responsible for his beloved wife, Adrienne’s death (although the circumstances of just how Will was responsible have yet to come to light within the time jump).

Justin informs Will he is taking over Ben’s case, and Will thinks that with Justin on his side, Ben will have a better chance of getting out of the slammer.  Then, a guilt-ridden Will tells Justin that he thinks about Adrienne every single day and he will never stop hating and loathing on himself for being responsible for taking the love of Justin’s life away from him, and for what it has done to Will’s husband, Sonny, who has lost his mother in the process, and caused a huge rift in their marriage.

As things get more emotional between the two men, Will tells Justin that in his heart Adrienne was like a mom to him. Then, an emotional Justin tells Will he knows he did not mean to harm Adrienne.  Will thanks Justin, but thinks Justin hates him.  It is then that Justin reveals he could never hate Will.

Justin admits he hates what Will did, but let’s him know in no uncertain terms that he thinks of Will as a son, and will not and can’t stop loving him.  As Justin begins to tear up, he becomes emotionally overwhelmed by the sadness of the entire situation, and tells Will, “You’re a part of our family for better or worse.”

Next, Justin reminds Will that no matter what happens life goes on.   He himself is a perfect example as he has fallen in love with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and is happy for the first time in many months.  Then in the punctuation point of the scene, Justin tells Will to never give up on life and the two embrace.

Did Wally Kurth just lock up an Emmy nomination with this scene that aired on Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives? Did you reach for the hankies?  Share your thoughts on the heart-tugging scenes via the comment section below.  But first watch some key moments from it.

Stephen Nichols On His DAYS Return As Stefano: “I Knew I Didn’t Want To Be A Cheap Imitation.”

By now, Days of our Lives fans have witnessed that the heralded return of longtime favorite, Stephen Nichols came with a twist.  When Nichols re-emerged on the canvas, he was now playing Stefano DiMera, but in the face and body of what seems to be Steve “Patch” Johnson.

Nichols, who along with Mary Beth Evans, have been known as enduring supercouple Patch and Kayla, and now they find themselves in the Salem time jump in a different set of circumstances,  First of all, Kayla is romantically involved with Justin Kiriakis (Wally Kurth), and Nichols returned as Stefano and is in ca-hoots with Princess Gina (Kristian Alfonso).

In an interview in the current issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Stephen opens up about taking on the classic soap villain role made famous by the late, great Joe Mascolo.

Nichols admitted there was some trepidation taking on and in approaching how to portray the role: “It was daunting and a major challenge to take on. I knew I didn’t want to be a cheap imitation. I wanted to get Stefano’s essence.”

In preparing for his new journey on DAYS, Nichols noted: “I watched the master, Joe Mascolo.  I got lots of videos of Stefano. Stefano in every mode: Manipulating, laughing, Stefano with the ladies, with his children, and, of course, Stefano raging.”
