NBC’s Days of our Lives is the next production to put a halt in their taping schedule due to a positive coronavirus test result.  This one from member of the production team as reported by Deadline.

The long-running soap will now shut down production for two weeks   According to Deadline, “The cast, crew and staff of the daytime drama were just notified of the temporary shutdown in an email from Corday Productions.”

Taping is slated to resume October 26.  The pause will not delay air dates, and the show’s  original episodes on NBC will not be disrupted.

The individual who received a positive result as part of the production’s Covid-19 protocols has been placed in isolation.   As well, Preliminary contact tracing has been completed, with the people identified as close contacts to the affected individual placed in quarantine for a period of 14 days.

In addition, out of an abundance of caution, Corday productions will have a deep cleaning and disinfecting process for their production facilities, before any taping is to resume.

Want to know what the mistake was? Opening everything back up. Sorry, things should have stayed shut down until this was gone. People think their rights are being violated? How about the people who lost their right to live? I love my soaps but it’s too risky for anything anywhere. Some will agree with me; some will disagree. Either way, it’s how i feel. Like it or leave it.

I agree 100%. I get the excitement of getting back to a job you love and enjoy so much, however, given California’s COVID rates, it is far too soon for anything to be back in-production, especially soaps. This country did not shut down swiftly enough, and going back is premature.

Tell me Scott, how long to those who work on the sets of Days and other tv programs have to wait before they have your permission to return to work. For that matter, how much more of the American economy has to be destroyed before Americans have your permission to go back to work?

Jimh, I’m not sure where you got that from. The World Health Organization has never said that the shutdowns weren’t needed and caused more harm than good. That’s simply not true. A quick Google search finds that they said the exact opposite, advocating for shutdowns and warning about ending them too early.

Whether you like it or not Americans have to be allowed to get back to work. People are being evicted by landlords for non payment of rents. Other people are struggling to pay for both food and necessarily prescriptions. The economy is tanking. Are YOU and others who think as you do prepared to pay the rent/mortgage, provide food, provide all needed medications no matter the cost, pay all the electric/light/water/heat bills etc for every Individual who works on the set of Days etc until the middle of 2021? How about paying for all Americans? It is either that or… Read more »

Safety first. If somebody on the show dies from COVID, even Rolf and his magic serum & brain chips won’t be able to help.

Even better if it won’t actually pre-empt any episodes, but they have already done that enough for dumb reasons. Like Sports in the middle of the day, even though NBC has another channel literally called “NBC Sports” that can be used for such things. And a prime time schedule which still hasn’t really launched the Fall season yet (no, the idiotic “reality” shows and corporate autotuned “singing” competitions don’t count)

“I do not believe their is one person who wants anyone to be at risk for the virus absolutely nobody” Except for the orange guy who went to a debate, a fundraiser, and a number of campaign events after he KNEW he had been infected, and who is now still campaigning despite being contagious with the virus, barely able to breathe, and (judging by his latest rants) losing even more control of his mental faculties than what little he had before. That guy doesn’t seem to care whose lives he puts at risk. Nor do his friends in the Senate,… Read more »

Hope the cast and staff is safe but these few soaps that are left have got to have a plan b. Its inevitable this is going to happen again so the soaps need to build up a lot of extra episodes. They need to shorten the daily shows and come up with a lot of filler material or come up with some theme related programs for the audience. Days filmed part of the Last Blast series Gang on the net maybe they could do Will, Sonny and Ari in Vegas. Or they can have a special theme contests like Days… Read more »

Lori Loughlin Returns To Acting; Set To Reprise ‘When Calls The Heart’ Role in GAC Family’s ‘When Hope Calls’

Former Fuller House, Edge of Night, and When Calls the Heart star, Lori Loughlin, has landed her first acting role since jail time and her part in the College Admissions Scandal; where she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, paid half a million dollars in bribes to get their two daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, accepted into the University of Southern California.

While, Jade is now also in this season’s Dancing with the Stars, now comes word that Loughlin has gotten her first acting gig since all the legal trouble, and while still on probation following her two months in jail.

Look for Lori to reprise her beloved role of Abigail from When Calls the Heart on its season two spin-off on GAC Family, When Hope Calls.

According to Deadline: Loughlin will appear in the two-part Season 2 premiere titled When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas, to air on Saturday, December, 18th.  Lori was last seen on TV as Abigail in Season 6 of Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart before she was let go over her involvement in the college admissions scandal.

Last week, speculation began that Loughlin may be back working after a report surfaced from Mercury News  that she had been granted permission by a Boston federal judge to travel to Canada for about a week in late September-early October for “a filming production project.”

So, what do you think about Lori’s return to acting following serving jail time? Will you be watching her as Abigail on When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas? Comment below.
