NBC announced the renewal of “Days of our Lives,” the longest running series on NBC for a record 55th season.
“Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.”
:”It’s a great day in Salem! The sands in the hourglass will continue to flow for yet another year,” said executive producer Ken Corday in the NBC press release. “We’re grateful to NBC and Sony for their continued support of the show and, of course, to our dedicated and passionate fans, we owe it all to you. Thank you for taking us through our 55th season. We can’t wait for you to see what we have in store.”
The multi-Emmy Award-winning series will continue with the Salem families as they gear up for more adventures. “Days of our Lives” premiered in 1965 as a half-hour drama and expanded to a full hour 10 years later. It aired its 13,500th episode in 2018. The iconic daytime drama has won 57 Emmy Awards, most recently 2018’s Outstanding Daytime Drama, and has earned 323 nominations.
