    Days was renewed by NBC which means it will air until at least September 2021.

    Days will celebrate its 55th Anniversary and also air its 14,000th episode as a result of this renewal.

    There also seems to be some tension between Corday Productions and Sony Pictures Television. There is a lawsuit against Sony from Corday Productions alleging that Sony is trying to kill DOOL in favor of Y&R which makes more money for them. Apparently, Sony isn’t promoting DOOL enough or trying to sell it into other territories the way they do Y&R.

    Overall, I think DOOL will get renewed, NBC has seemingly been happy with its performance. I think it’ll stay put at least another year.

    I’ve read the whole contract thing is nothing more than shrewd business on Corday’s part to allow the actors to return at a lower rate and cut costs.

    This lawsuit was settled a few weeks ago between Sony & Corday. It has not been revealed what the settlement is yet.

    As I said in a previous post, the TV Line article was obviously a leak by one of the sides to get a more favorable outcome in the contract dispute. It worked after the fan outcry and Days was trending all over the place. It got them an SNL parody skit too.

    Yeah, this really goes into the “no such thing as bad press” bucket. All the speculation of the show being cancelled has gotten it so much media attention.

    This is the earliest pickup DAYS has gotten from NBC in some time…that bodes very well for how NBC is viewing its profitability.

    I’m sure the actors in Daytime get paid scale so it saves NBC a lot of money. According to SAG a day rate is $630 and a weekly rate is $2,190. Compared to working actors in primetime this is pretty low.
