REPORT: Days of our Lives Targets September Production Restart

Photo: JPI

Looks like Salem and Days of our Lives will be back in full-swing come September, if the target date holds true as revealed today by Deadline.

According to their sources, Corday Productions, who produces the long-running NBC daytime drama, sent out an email to cast members on Thursday notifying them of their intent to resume production come September 1st.

However for this article; reps for NBC, Corday and Sony Pictures TV declined to comment.

Days of our Lives has had enough shows banked through early October of this year, so was not pressed to get back into production amidst the coronavirus pandemic as much as CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful (which went back into production a week and half ago), and The Young and the Restless and General Hospital who are targeting a mid-July restart.

All three of the shows, except for DAYS ran out of original episodes to air, back at the end of April of this year.

So, excited to hear that their may be plans ahead come fall for DAYS to come to back and tape new episodes? Comment below.

Glad to hear production starts back for DAYS but definitely don’t want to see that they are over 6 months ahead in production. I didn’t like how they were so far ahead and if a storyline wasn’t working, we couldn’t write in to voice our opinion so that maybe changes could be made. Sure will be nice to see all four soaps can carry one where we left off.

GH actually lasted until the end of May – thanks to the addition of a large amount of flashbacks.

Hopefully DAYS used the break top is advantage and adjusted storylines that weren’t working. They’ll be close to a taping schedule that the other shows use if they stick to this timing.

Exactly : DAYS schedule… would now be that much closer and in line with the remaining three. WOW as I tried to post… just twirking here and their… actors and writing … this could be exciting to see ALL 4 serials… just churning out… even becoming competitive… clean slate.

which brings up another pint… with @DAYS so far ahead… 8 months… it just wasn’t “fun” to post, knowing no results or change would be forthcoming. which isn’t to say it ever will. I want to cheer DAYS on….

Don’t see Newsom letting up not as long as it means they can turn our country into communism ! How is that working for you Hollywood ? Not so much fun when they are at your door is it?

With the utmost respect, Michael, I don’t know how it’s ok to keep allowing KKKay to post racist, ignorant things under the guise of commenting on TV shows. This one is not overtly racist, but it sure is ignorant and divisive. She is saying that we should let people keep dying, equating public health and science to communism! Her handle is basically KKK for crying out loud! Please Michael, don’t give these people and their hate a platform.

Great point and post, Soapfan! But, there’s freedom of speech and some never miss the opportunity to use it to spread their negativity. Yeah, let’s send everybody back out there! It’s only a pandemic and LIVES don’t matter!

Thank you for your reply, Lew, but as most Americans do, you misunderstand what “free speech” means. Its origin in the constitution is to protect the rights of people to protest to the government, the way #blacklivesmatter is, without being beaten, shot and/or imprisoned by the government (the way #blacklivesmatter protesters are). It is not meant to protect people who post hate-inciting messages on a soap opera message board, which is privately run and moderated. Posting here is not a right.

Do they really have shows “banked through the end of October” though? They replayed pretty much the last half of Thursday’s episode on Friday, so it seems like they’re already making use of editing to stretch out the episodes. As long as they don’t use ridiculous flashbacks like GH did, because flashbacks on Days kinda suck, the way they make them look and sound like somebody recorded a video off a TV with their cell phone.

This show has become almost unbearable to watch…with the repeat story arcs, mocking mental illness, endless kidnappings, usage of gun violence. But, the bomb scene (where the acting was horrible by John, Marlena, Hope, etc) was pathetic. Now, we have weddings that take up a whole week and are so poorly done due to budget its laughable. When did Will become ordained to officiate a wedding ceremony.Not sure what’s worse right now, the writing or some of the cartoonish acting. Never being a fan of the campy side of Days, I appreciate the acting and drama/angst brought by the actors… Read more »

I think the show is in a good place story wise. However, the handwriting for soaps have been on the wall for some time. I preach it every time I write. The days of the large soap casts are over. Soaps have got to pare down to one core family and revolve the stories around generational issues just like night time dramas such as This is It and Blue Bloods. I’d love to have Gabi’s mother come back and be a homophobe comparing Abby endlessly to her dead sainted sister and disapproving of Will and Sonny raising Ari. I really… Read more »

I love Days and hope that it can survive with everything going on w/declining soap audiences and their budget constraints. John and Marlena are wonderful, but let’s face it they are beyond their acting prime and chemistry is meh. I don’t understand why writers don’t try pushing Steve/Kayla Johnson more to forefront instead of supporting.Those two actors can still act their butts off and have out of this world chemistry. Having one or more of their children on the show would bring in a freshness and ability with new stories. All we see mostly, same stuff with the varying branches… Read more »
