After the future of Days of our Lives remained in question, following NBC’s recent acquisition of Megyn Kelly to the day-part, it turns out to today is a good day for fans of the long-running NBC soap opera.

The network announced DAYS has been officially renewed for its 52nd season. In a press release statement, Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment noted: We feel so privileged to be able to continue the remarkable legacy of Days of our Lives. We thank Ken Corday and his team for their incredible accomplishments and look forward to all the stories from Salem that will continue to unfold.”

DAYS executive producer Ken Corday expressed on the renewal pick-up: “It’s a great day in Salem! We’re pleased to announce that after more than 51 years in the hearts and homes of our amazing fans, Days of our Lives will continue to be part of the NBC family. We are grateful to our incredible network and longstanding partner Sony for their continued support, and we look forward to what the future will bring under the new creative direction of the show. I’m especially proud to be able to shepherd Days into the new season, continuing my parents dream and the show’s legacy.”

Steve Kent, Senior Executive Vice President, Programming, Sony Pictures Television, added, “Days of our Lives has a legacy of rich storytelling that has traveled across generations. Ken Corday and the cast and crew continue to deliver dynamic storylines and unforgettable performances, and we are proud to continue to bring this award-winning series to audiences both in the U.S. and around the world.”

With the renewal pick-up and a new creative team led by former OLTL and GH head writer, Ron Carlivati along with Sherri Anderson Thomas and Ryan Quan, now the series has the opportunity to present to their audience exciting and reinvigorated storytelling.

This is wonderful news, Days ratings will go up and up with Ron. Days is a terrific soap. Time to bring back Vivian Alamain, Ron please call Louise Sorel and bring back my madam. Oh bring back her side kick Ivan.

I agree Claudio, Vivian and Ivan need to come back to DOOL. They were so fun to watch.

Re-Ron nearly destroyed GH with his buffoonish brand of writing, but at Days it’s “ratings will go up and up”? They have to go “up and up” just to reach below average. This clearly reeks of desperation by Ken Corday/NBC/Sony to save the show. I’m so sick of these same-old hack writers getting second, third, and even fourth chances writing for these soaps when there are so many young up-and-coming writers with fresh ideas who are never given an opportunity. No wonder the genre is in such bad shape.

Great idea to bring back Vivian and Ivan with Ron C. writing! Bring back the original Celeste too if she’s up to returning.

Vivian said she wouldnt be back after being fired in 2012 no way to write her in now anyways

Fantastic news! For Ken Corday: Days is in our hearts and we are glad to go on those great character journeys with you–recently the re-wedding of Kayla and Patch. Thanks for wonderful memories, romances, fantasies. I cherish them–and look forward to many, many more.

Did Kayla and Steve get married? I mean, it never aired for me so did they actually get married or are they lost in space somewhere trying to get to the altar? 😉

Yes, they married this past Thursday, Mo. You can watch it at or download the free app.

Thank you NBC, for renewing Days Of Our Lives. I am thrilled Days is staying on the air. Now they need to change the taping schedule. Change it to 2 months ahead. Bring back Jack and calliope Jones.

Exciting news, but it’s actually renews for the 53rd season! DAYS is contracted for another 18 months!


Not arguing, but how did you figure that?

i believe we are going to get a ‘Who killed Deimos” plotline…i think it will be Chloe who will become unbalanced fearing Nicole will attempt to take Holly from her so she frames Nicole for killing Deimos and then when Chloe is found out Nicole will get Holly!!!

I love it, Jimmy, but you already knew I would!

THIS IS AWESOME! Now Bring John and Marlena front and center. It’s time to give Patch/Kayla a rest. Some of thee fans are stuck in the 80s, and he has NOT matured as a character. Bring back Cassie Brady and Billie Reed as the new bad girls in Salem. Bring back Sami OR Carrie permanently. Shawn and Belle need to return with AWESOME story. Amp up Rafe/Hope, reveal that Will is alive. Also bring back humor and romance. Paging Vivian Alamain! We need one or 2 hot love triangles. Bring back Peter Blake in the form of Michael Muheney, OR bring back EJ and recast him with Simon from ATWT! Also bring back Kristen DiMera!! Please and Thanks!

Drake (John) was seriously injured on-set and that is why he hasn’t been seen on-screen as he was recovering. He is back filming.

The best news this year,. I had a really good feeling that DOOL was not getting cancelled. The haters must be pissed, that Days got renewed. I watch Days and Y&R. I still miss AMC and OLTL.

That’s great news. Now, take a few months off from filming to get closer to air date. This will allow for adjustments to storylines that might not be working.

In new issue of SOD, Ken Corday says they tape so far in advance because of costs so I doubt that will change. They tape 8 episodes a week. I too wish they weren’t so far in advance so changes could be quickly made when something isn’t working.

I remember when Belle was recast and they hired Charity Rahmer who was awful and we had to sit through months of her before her replacement Martha Madison aired.

Charity Rahmer was on DAYS for 3 weeks, Mo.

Well, it was 3 weeks of pure torture. Felt like much longer!

I truly hope Ron can bring some good story telling to this soap. It was dreadful before the ridiculous decision to bring Hingley back and even more so during her time. It will take some creative undoing of the damage she did in such a short period of time.


Very happy and please let nicole get holly soon!!

Best news in the last 2 years! I have watched Days since it’s premier episode, pening scene on Tom and Alice’s front porch. First big story, Julie stealing the fur stole from the department store. I am 68 and still love Days!

so thrilled and happy for the cast , crew , writers , behind the scenes people , sony and nbc ! very good and wise decision . now make the year ahead exciting : we want love , romance and candlelight lovemaking scenes with candles , we want the screen lit up ( too dark ) : light it up like it was lit up during paul rauch”s run as executive producer on young and restless , bring us action , adventure , humor , excitement , make the characters more energized and passionate , enrich these characters personality dimensions , hire actors who can act with solid theatre background . please fix the accompanying music on the soap as well , it also a drama so a shocking music tune needs to be put in when a big secret comes out or some drama unfolds , put some music to accompagny the other scenes too : santa barbara , bold and beautiful and young and restless worked wonders in that regard back in the 80’s : bring back jack allocco , dominic messinger . watch the stories told by young and restless , bold and beautiful , santa barbara and guiding light to give you ideas ( stories from the 70’s and 80’s ) . with some passion and vision Days can be here to stay for many more years !

Oh Nicholas, I SO AGREE WITH YOU regarding the music for DOOL, it’s horrible and I would love for Jack Allocco, Dominic Messinger be hired at DOOL to handle the music…I wish Y&R would hire them back for the background score makes a world of difference. I feel B&B and GH are the 2 soaps with the best background music scores…I feel like Y&R had the best until Jack and David left.

Very happy it was renewed.

I am very glad, I been watching DAYS for 45 years and can’t wait to get home ever day to watch it, Congratulations on your 52nd Year.

I’m glad to read about the renewal; that gives Ron the chance to work his magic!

Amen to that, Ron will be terrific. I have faith in Ron. So happy Days got renewed.

Ron’s “magic” will make the show disappear permanently, lol. He nearly destroyed GH toward the end of his run there, and now two years later is hired by another soap? Unbelievably pathetic. This has to be a desperate, final Hail Mary attempt to save Days, but I think too much damage has already been done to the show over the last 1-2 years to undo.

I truly don’t get the fascination with this man. IMO, he’s an overrated writer with his ridiculously cartoonish plot lines, many of which on GH ignored its history and vets. Not to mention he has a massive ego and rips fans who make respectful suggestions to him on Twitter. What a class act, not.

Pat, I too agree with you on Ron…not my type of writing at all…

I agree with you both of you! Horrors!

Congratulations to Days of Our Lives and its devoted fan base!

So glad..Not surprising since they hire Ron C…He will give new life to the show, but he tends to get tacky and cartoonish as time goes on, but he is a good writer who is more refreshing than all the rest of the writing stable on Daytime soaps!!

I will be tuning in once his regime goes in effect..I wish DOOL will stop taping sooo far ahead..That is actually its biggest downfall!! The show announces some new casting news or writing/production changes and by the time it happens months later, the buzz is gone!!

Please don’t waste this chance which is probably the last.

This is great news for the cast, crew and fans. I have had the opportunity to meet the cast twice during the past few years and I am happy for all of them.

I have been a viewer since the days of Amanda, Greg, Chris, Julie, Doug, Don, Bob, Liz and Trish (almost 40 years). I have loved that “Days” is using their history to bring back Valerie Grant to mix it up with Julie. Susan Seaforth needs to be utilized more than comedy relief and for being a nosy relative. It is time the show uses her that way they found a jewel in Maggie after years of neglect. Julie could easily be the matriarch of the show. I would love to see Julie and Doug use the Martin House as a way to have several family members under one roof.

I think “Days” missed a huge opportunity of killing off David Banning. He obviously had a strained relationship with Julie and could have a lot of storyline with Julie, Valerie and his son. Didn’t he once have a rivalry with Mike Horton too? This could have been a great storyline with many layers.

As much as I love many of the legacy characters, it is time to realize that most of our favorites were popular 30+ years ago. I want an age-appropriate storyline for Marlena and John that doesn’t have to do with his heritage. I want to see family dynamics with Jennifer and Hope. It is time to trim the cast and realize that some of that money needs to be spent on the future of the show. Is there anyone out there that believes Claire, Theo, Jade and Joey are bringing in ratings? Please listen to your audience. This rapidly-aged teen set is NOT working.

The Chloe/Nicole baby storyline feels like a “been there, done that” storyline that has used too many times. Let’s see Nicole back in the business world and show here strengths. I do not want to watch her crying for weeks over not having her baby. Chloe being awarded custody was crazy. Doesn’t she have drugs and prostitution on her resume?

I can’t wait to see what Ron C. has in store for the show. Let’s hope that it is the reboot that the show needs and Ken Corday doesn’t have to deliver another “hang in there” interview again next year. I want the show to have a larger budget to have a few remote shots. I am so tired of seeing Horton Square, the park, the Brady Pub and Victor’s living room. I also want to see better continuity. Was Hope and Rafe really dancing two scenes later after finding out David (Hope’s cousin) had died in a motorcycle crash?

Lastly, recast EJ or bring back Peter Blake and let Kristen DiMera have more great scenes with Brady. If Jen Lilly does not want to come back, recast the role. I would also love to see Eve come back to town and have a storyline that is worthy of her talent. It would also be good to see Cassie and Rex come back to town. Kate is better dealing with family matters than sleep walking through her scenes with Eduardo.

Deimos will be murdered and Nicole will be framed for the crime by Chloe who actually killed Deimos during a sruggle…she is going insane and desperate to keep Nicole away from Holly…ok, i made this up-lol

Please don’t squander this last opportunity. Ron should shelve the rest of this writing regime’s stories and rebuild from the ground up. Need to shift focus to the Belle/Shawn generation and put the oldies in the background. Hope, Marlena and the others of that generation have had their Days. The eighties are long over! Time to contemporize the show and bring it into the 21st century. Oh, and give Nicole her baby. Chloe is a kidnapper- put her in jail!

I definitely agree about Hope, does Ken Corday have a thing for her? I’m tired of her being on the front burner ALL THE TIME!!!

I believe this is nothing more than a brief stay of execution, postponing the inevitable. This is undoubtedly sink or swim time for Days, and will be its absolute FINAL chance to survive. The ratings are still very poor from what we see posted here each week. Quite frankly, based on these numbers you’d have to be naive to think that NBC executives are 100% (or even 75%) happy with the show’s performance. Obviously, they were somehow able to agree with Sony on a bargain-basement licensing fee that makes financial sense for both sides. I truly wonder how much lower they had to go in an effort to offset such poor ratings and surely diminished ad revenue.

I believe that this decision has everything to do with the ridiculously long 5-6 month period of time ahead that the show tapes. Reportedly, episodes to air in early July have already been taped! Even though the show’s contract was due to expire this September, TPTB at NBC and Sony almost certainly realized that that would not be an adequate period of time to wrap up the show. Ron Carlivati has a ton of work to do in such a short period of time to repair all the damage that has been done to the show by the previous inept writing regime. And based on Re-Ron’s arrogant attitude toward fans (peons) who have the audacity to give him constructive criticism on Twitter and how he ruined GH with his constant nonsensical brand of writing before he was booted out of there not even 2 years ago, I’m honestly not optimistic at all. Sorry.

How many reboots, restarts, and staff changes has Days endured in the last 5 years? Can’t these soaps for once hire some new, young blood instead of hiring the same old hacks who fail at another show and are clearly out of touch with modern times? I don’t trust Ken Corday, who has shown over and over again that he’s out of touch and doesn’t care one iota about what fans want to see.

Agreed, Days has turned into an unwatchable dumpster fire. The ship is sinking.

Agree here too…Don’t watch anymore.

Nick…AGREED!!!!! To me, DOOL has gotten WAY TOO RIDICULOUS!!!!! Oh…and BTW…’unwatchable dumpster fire’…GOOD ONE…AND A VERY, VERY ACCURATE DESCRIPTION!!!!!

Later, dude.

Great news indeed, but it wasn’t exactly a secret. You don’t bring in RC without some assurance that more sand exists in the hourglass. That being said, this is DAYS’ last best chance to flourish. Let’s hope they don’t blow it, because daytime TV needs Salem, IL to be around as long as possible

I had to reply here, Troy.

DAYS’ contracts begin in September because each television season begins in September. Because DAYS tapes an average of 5-6 months ahead of airtime, they come up with a contract deal no later than the February before the September ending contract. DAYS still has the rest of this month through September before the previous contract runs out. The newest renewal begins in September and runs through September of 2018, so that’s roughly 18 more months of DAYS unless it is renewed next Februarary for beginning next September.

DAYS premièred on November, 8 of 1965, so it’s first season was only about ten months (November 1965- September 1966). After that, all seasons were beginning in September and ending in September.

Because DAYS’ first season began in 1965, the upcoming season will be the 53rd season.

I know you’re not arguing, but a little argument never hurt anyone, has it?

When is Ron material starting? Inwill tune in

Hooray days is the BEST!

Very happy about this news. Don’t watch Days but I’m happy it’s sticking around. The daytime drama is an all American icon.

I am so very happy that DAYS will remain on the air! I have watched the show for a really long time and feel strongly that the actors and actresses are part of my family!!! I have laughed, cried tears of joy and cried tears of happiness. I cannot express how glad I am that my DAYS family will still visit my home daily and they will always be a welcome part of my day. Thank you to the writers who have always written such realistic and believable storylines, thanks to the actors for the unparalleled jobs they all do and thank you to all of the normally unsung heros who work hard behind the scenes to make the show so great! I am proud to have been a loyal fan for almost 50 years and ecstatic to be able to continue as a loyal fan in the future.

I am so excited to hear this wonderful news. I am the third generation watcher in my family. Days is the longest running soap, if my mind recalls correctly. I just cannot imagine it not being there. Thank you and I love the cast of Days.

Kathy, DAYS premiered in 1965 (as did I), but General Hospital was already two years old!

GH (04-01-63)
DAYS (11-08-65)

Age difference: 2 years, 7 months and 1 week!

Closer to 3 than 2 years, but who’s counting? lol


Chole is going to become unhinged and accidentally kill Deimos but it will look like murder…she frames ex friend Nicole who she fears will attempt to take baby Holly from her…Nicole will be found guilty and given the death penalty…but Brady will rush to the prison with proof Chloe killed Deimos…Nicole nearly dies from the lethal injection given her on a Friday cliffhanger but will be revived the following Monday but as we are about to see her revived the show is interrupted by a President Trump news conference-just joking around-lol

Everything you said, Jimmy. LOL

Great news! Happy to hear it.

So Davstelv1, NBC was going to cancel DOOL? Looks like your crystal ball didn’t work. Time to get a new one. Any other false claims you would like to make .

This is the best news I’ve heard ALL DAY, probably up there with the whole week!!! I love me my Days, and so happy that they are doing all they can to keep the final four on, and keeping them in the best shape possible. I hope Ron puts the funk in it like he did with GH and Oltl. This gives him a chance to do it all, very excited. I’m already watching and they are paying hard attention to the history, Shane’s Brother? I hope the battles between the families stop though. I also hope that Ron uses this opportunity to bring Jack back, in my opinion the biggest mistake made on the show, and Jennifer and her family and the show would only benefit from the return of this complicated character with a rich history of being a hero and a villain. He needs to stay this time. I am just excited the show is staying on though. I bet all those negative Nelles feel stupid now, or are just being negative somewhere else.


I just new God would save it I just wish they would go back to the 60s 70s and 8os and look at the storys and use them today God can do anything you just have to belive

I was wondering if there is another soap site we could look at that tells the soap news this site is awsome but would be nice if there was a nother one


Its a victory for daytime in general. Congrats to the DAYS fans and the actors who will stay employed!

This had to be a close decision for Sony and the network only because of the ratings. Still sucks that there’s no way to count the folks who record the shows on DVR or VHS which I am sure are still floating out there. I spoke to someone recently about how those numbers aren’t factored in and he thought that was a total rip-off. anyway, I am glad to know DAYS is going to still be on to give us more excitement and very good stories. Ron is going to shake things up in a good way!!!

I didn’t know people still used vcr’s/vhs!

Congratulations to the Cast and Crew, Management and the Loyal Fans of DOOL!

Great, great news! With us being down to only 4 soaps left (I watch them all) we can’t afford to lose one. I remember watching in the summers with my great-grandmother. We had to hurry up & finish lunch & sit on the couch & not make a sound while “her story” was on! Long live Days of Our Lives!

Was thrilled to be able to share this information with my grandma on her 97th birthday. She gets another year of “her stories”, God willing

ohhh…that really is nice! G-d willing, yes! 🙂

This is wonderful news!

I Agee with you 100%

Wow I’m impressed! Congrats to cast and crew and happy for the fans too. I’m looking forward to what Ron C. writes for Days.

I’d love to see Vivian, Ivan, Celeste, Carrie and Austin return for long term. And less Hope would be awesome.

great news, I was worried. It is my favorite show

I have been watching days for Generations I have always loved this show it’s the only one I follow is where I get a lot of my memories of my mother and grandmother not to mention great Aunt they were all Avid followers, losing Peter Reckell put a damper on everybody’s hard to us he was the spirit of Salem all my love and good wishes to your new riding team let it bring us back to our Glory Days

Sorry for not proof reading that should say heart writing and aunts

I DVR days, unfortunately I don’t get to watch it every day but I do still watch. DAYS AND GH!

I am so excited to learn of this, I have watched Days since I was a little girl with my grandmother, and now my daughter and I watch it, I love all of your characters and look forward to coming home after a long day working in surgery, to sitting down and turning on the tv and just getting lost in your drama and leaving my drama of work behind, and for that I thank you… So keep up the great work that you do.. And congratulations to all of you.. Sincerely a fan for life…

Totally disagree on that. I watch because I like to see my friends. The vetereanx d my friends. No Maggie of Jennifer Or Marla a I wouldn’t have reason to watch

Good work. I am for the most part enjoying most of the show. I just have one complaint. Re-Ron. When he first came on GH he did a great job, BUT. then he ruined it all. He seems to know the history of the show. Then he acts the fool, and everyone wants to kill him .Myself personally I like the oldsters, teens, and most history. I feel sorry for Nicole, whom I never liked before. Demios needs to be murdered. I also want jack to return. I do not like Hope with Rafe.

Days Of Our Lives

Stephen Schnetzer Talks On His Return to Days of our Lives and Working with Susan Seaforth Hayes In Emotional Episodes

Who says you can’t go home again? In the case of Another World favorite, Stephen Schnetzer (ex-Cass Winthrop), he has proven that it is true, and you can go back to your soap roots and where it all started for you.

Last week on April 11th, Schnetzer, along with several other key returns were on set at Days of our Lives taping all-new episodes of the Peacock streaming soap opera, centering on the funeral of Doug Williams (the late Bill Hayes), and as part of the iconic soap opera’s 15,000th episode.

Stephen is reprising his first daytime role as Steve Olson, the brother of Julie Williams (Susan Seaforth Hayes). The last time Schnetzer appeared on a DAYS set was during his one and only run on the show from 1978 to 1980. Clearly, viewers will be in for some very emotional scenes when Steve returns to Salem to be there for his sister, Julie in her time of need. In real-life, Susan has been going through her own grief, having just lost Bill back on January 12th at the age of 98.

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Stephen during the 15K episode celebration ceremony, and during a break from taping the gut-wrenching funeral scenes, to get his thoughts on being part of these highly-anticipated moments that will air later this year in December. Here’s what he shared with us below.

What has this been like for you to work with Susan Seaforth Hayes after all of these years?

STEPHEN: She’s a dream and she’s so bright. We ran lines yesterday and we ended up just visiting for about 45 minutes and just catching up and telling tales about each other’s career. She even dropped off the autobiography that she and Bill did. And being back here at DAYS, every time I turn a corner, there’s another familiar face. When I was on the show 40 more years ago, a bunch of the guys, played softball on a team together. This is really a trip down memory lane as I knew it would be.

Photo: JPI

Taping Doug’s funeral must be a hard day for Susan. Are you checking in with her to help hold her up through this?

STEPHEN: I am and I’m checking in with Amy Shaughnessy (Susan’s assistant), and she’s holding her up more than anybody. We’re there for each other.

There will obviously be some major hankie-inducing moments when Steve comes back to Salem to console his sister.

STEPHEN: Oh, wait till you see it in December. It’s going to be great.

Were you surprised you got this call to come back to the show decades later?

STEPHEN: It was out of the blue! I was completely surprised. They should have called me decades ago! That’s what surprised me. When Another World went down, I thought I’d land somewhere else and it never happened. That was more of a surprise.

Cass is such an identifiable character for you. As well, you and Linda Dano (ex-Felicia Gallant) are so synonymous together as best friends Cass and Felicia from Another World. When fans heard you were reprising your role as Steve Olson on DAYS, they are now hoping there will be more of you on the show to come.

STEPHEN: Steven Olson is a real “Cassian “character. I cut my teeth on Steve Olson and that’s how Cass was introduced. He was kind of a roguish charmer. And then when the character stuck for Another World, they rehabilitated me, and turned me into one of the shows heroes. And that’s what would’ve happened if I stayed as Steve Olson probably. So, Steve is the ‘pre-Cass’, Cass.

As the story goes, you originally decided to leave Days of our Lives?

STEPHEN: I was never on contract. I was doing a day and a half a week and I got a Broadway play directed by Franco Zeffirelli starring Joan Plowright and Frank Finlay. I was able to it as I didn’t have to break a contract or anything. I cut loose and went back to New York for that.

How well did you get to know Bill Hayes during your first time around on DAYS?

STEPHEN: My first episode was with Bill and Susan, as her long lost brother coming into Salem. They were so good to me. They were so kind. I had been doing eight years of classical repertory theater, never been in front of a camera. I tell everybody, it took me longer than any other actor I’ve ever seen to get comfortable in front of a camera. And they were very supportive at that time in my career. Coming back to honor Bill now in 2024, and to be see Susan, I am just so happy to be here.

Looking forward to seeing the scenes between Stephen and Susan Seaforth Hayes come December and Doug’s funeral and surrounding episodes? Do you hope that DAYS might bring the character of Steve Olson back for a longer stay? Comment below.
