It was a very sad day for Days of Our Lives fans all across the country when the news broke that the show was possibly ending.
Rumors swirled around stating that Megyn Kelly would be taking the show's time slot for her new news show.
How could a television show that had been around since 1965 suddenly come to a halt simply to make room for a new daytime news show? Things didn't add up and the lifelong fans had something to say about it!
Apparently, voices were heard because there has been a VERY exciting announcement released: NBC successfully sealed new negotiations with Sony TV for another season! This would make this hit daytime drama hit a record of having 52 seasons. For now, there as been no indication that it is the final one.
"We feel so privileged to be able to continue the remarkable legacy of Days of Our Lives. We thank Ken Corday and his team of their incredible accomplishments and look forward to all the stories from Salem that will continue to unfold," said President of NBC Entertainment, Jennifer Salke.
"It's a great day in Salem!" exclaimed Executive Producer Ken Corday, son of Ted and Betty Corday, the creators of the series. "We're please 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 parent's dream and the show's legacy."
We are SO excited about this new announcement, knowing that this classic show will be around another season longer. Our hope is that this is one of the best seasons to date, which would ensure that another season would soon follow.
Did this news come as a shock to you? Do you think Days of Our Lives is here to stay?
