Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment, confirmed the renewal, stating: “We are thrilled to announce that Days of our Lives is not going anywhere. It is NBC’s longest-running drama series by far and is one of the most historic brands in television. We commend Ken Corday and the entire creative team on continuing to keep the stories and characters fresh, exciting and relevant year after year.”
“Days of our Lives has maintained a loyal and dedicated fan base for more than four decades and continues to reach a new generation of viewers,” added Steve Mosko, President, Sony Pictures Television. “We appreciate NBC’s support over the years and, as the show celebrates this significant milestone, we are thrilled that the show will continue to be a part of the NBC family.”
“After so many years in the homes and hearts of our loyal fans, I’m both humbled and elated to say it’s 2013 and we’re still going strong,” said executive producer Ken Corday whose parents, Betty and Ted, co-created the series. “I am equally proud that the sense of family which my mom and dad established in our show 48 years ago, is still what drives it today. As we celebrate our 12,000th episode with an amazing cast and great support from our network, we look forward to what’s yet to come!”
