It will live to see another day!
NBC has added more sand to the hourglass of the soap opera “Days of Our Lives” and has renewed the show for season 56.
The news of the renewal comes only 10 days after the entire cast was informed that they were being let out of their deals. Producers let all the actors out of their deals, but the show was still scheduled to air through the end of this season which is set to end in summer 2020. The remaining episodes were taped in advanced.
According to someone close to the situation, the deal for the new season is not officially set in stone but all signs are saying that it will be really soon.
The daytime drama has ran for more than 13,725 episodes, premiered as a half-hour drama in 1965. It has garnered 61 Daytime Emmy Awards, as well as multiple People’s Choice Awards, GLAAD Media Awards and Prism Awards.
How the show will look after those shows run out will be interesting to see.
