Days of Our Lives Inks a New Contract!
Although Days of Our Lives just celebrated its 43rd anniversary, fans of the soap have been living under the shadow of near constant speculation that their beloved series would be cancelled in the near future. Now, they finally have a little light. NBC has announced that they have signed an 18-month deal with Sony Pictures TV. This means that Days current contract, which runs out in March, 2009, will be extended until at least until September, 2010. In the deal, it is also stipulated that an additional year could be possible if certain goals are met and this could keep the mayhem alive in Salem until September, 2011.
What else could this new contract mean? It means that budget restrictions will be forcing the makers of the show to change things. This could involve sets but may also involve some casting changes. Soap Opera Fan Blog will keep you informed of details as they are released. For now, we are simply thrilled that the show will be continuing to air for at least two more years.
