“We are in a middle of finding out very soon. Of course Days of Our Lives is going to carry on. We love it…. I know that will be good news for the fans,” Telegdy said.

Telegdy said that negotiations are still underway. Sony Pictures TV is still trying to figure out how to adjust the business model of the show and that’s part of the reason for the delay. Additionally, all parties are committed to continue the show and keep it in the air.
Viewers may recall that “Days of Our Lives” executive Ken Corday of Corday Productions told the cast back in November that the sudser has been renewed for another season. He made the announcement after reports came out that due to cost cutting, the entire cast of the show has been released from their contract.
