‘Days of Our Lives'(DOOL) Spoilers reveal it’s been an interesting time for the NBC series. Both onscreen and off, the drama’s been real. While it seems the show’s future is secure, there are some new developments behind the scenes. So, what’s up with this long-running series? Here’s what you need to know.
‘Days of Our Lives'(DOOL) Spoilers: Shocking twist
The first thing to rock fans was the now-infamous time jump. The action moved ahead exactly one year, during which time Jennifer Horton (Melissa Reeves) was comatose. Once she woke up, crazy things went down.
‘Days of Our Lives'(DOOL) Spoilers: New reports give more insight into Days’ future
‘Days of Our Lives'(DOOL) spoilers reveal mind-blowing twists. Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) on death row. Adrienne Kiriakis (Judi Evans) dead. Stefano DiMera (Stephen Nichols) running around in Steve Johnson’s (Nichols) body. And that’s not even getting to some of the craziest reveals in the fictional town. But soon after that ground-breaking daytime move, real drama took center stage.
‘Days of Our Lives'(DOOL) Spoilers: Cancelled?
The rumors started shortly after the November 8th episode where Jennifer woke up a year later. Reports about the cast being released from their contracts dominated entertainment sites, including Daily Soap Dish. The noise was so loud, it prompted the cast to respond. Camila Banus, who plays Gabi DiMera, was perhaps the most vocal and shot down the rumors in the strongest terms. Other cast members soon joined in to debunk the cancellation talk. But there was soon to be a calm in that storm.
‘Days of Our Lives'(DOOL) Spoilers: Corday speaks
Eventually, Corday Productions, the company behind ‘Days of Our Lives'(DOOL), announced the series had been renewed for another season. This was great news to worried fans. The Daytime landscape is sparse these days, so there aren’t many options out there. We personally were especially happy to hear the news. The flash forward plot brings an element of suspense and mystery to Days that revitalized the series. The cast seems to be playing the heck out of their new circumstances, too, so we get the impression there’s a renewed excitement on set as well. While it was all but a formality, the renewal is making news again. And there are a couple of surprising tidbits.
First off, reports released today indicate some details regarding the renewal are still being worked out, but it is definitely coming back to the network. The most surprising part of the report was the mention they’d toyed with putting the series on NBC’s upcoming Peacock streaming service. ‘Days of Our Lives'(DOOL) spoilers reveal that idea ultimately got shot down. We’re glad, because we personally think the streaming service thing is getting out of hand and fans wouldn’t likely be happy to have to get a new service to see their favorite show. So, what can fans expect?
‘Days of Our Lives'(DOOL) Spoilers: Freddie’s insight

Freddie Smith, who plays Sonny Kiriakis, talked about the complex process of getting everyone on board. There’s 25 phone calls to make for the main cast alone. He indicated it’s all but impossible for the writers to get back to work until they know what characters/actors they have to work with. The actor assured fans, once more, that the show is going on. It’s just a matter of when everyone is coming back to work. He’s anticipating a late February start. Check out the episode here to see what he had to say. In the meantime, sit back and enjoy a wild ride for some time to come. They have enough episodes taped as of now to keep us in suspense while the cast enjoys their well-earned time off.
