'Days of Our Lives' Lives for 18 More Months At Least

Soap operas have been having a rough time lately with bleak futures and cancellations like "Passions", but long-running "Days of Our Lives" has been given it's 18 month extension. 

18 months may sound like a long time but for "Days", it's actually pretty short.  Last time they got a new contract it was for 5 years.  Seeing as how it's been around for 43, 18 months is hardly a long haul. 

With the renewal also comes some casting changes, according to executive producer Ken Corday.  However, he's not willing to spill all of the details on that yet. 

This might sound like "Days" is on it's way out but seeing as how it's tied for first among 18-34 year old women, I think it's safe to say the soap will be around for a lot longer, so feel free to keep getting caught up in the Salem story line.
