Since their current contract will be up in March, 2009, that means Days will stay on the air at least until September, 2010. An additional year could be added if certain elements on the show are met, keeping the good folks of Salem alive until September, 2011.
As the show just celebrated its 43rd anniversary, it’s hard to imagine it going off the air, but with budget restraints it is certainly a possibility. It seems that in an effort to keep economic issues in mind, and as part of the renewal terms, Days of Our Lives will be changing things up a bit onscreen, which will probably lead to some casting changes.
While Soaps.com doesn’t want to see anyone leave the show, we are happy that Days of Our Lives will be around for at least the next two years!
