TMZ is reporting that the entire cast of Days Of Our Lives has been released from their contracts. They explain that, “The producers of the more than 50-year-old soap opera let all the their actors out of their deals, meaning they’re all free to get new jobs.”
The show is about to begin its 55th season, and afterwards they will go on an indefinite hiatus. Since the show is filmed months in advance, there will be new episodes through Summer of 2020.
NBC will decide early next year if the show will come back for season 56.
TMZ also adds that if they do decide to bring everyone back, it will be at lower salaries.
