the truth about the days rumors

An article on tvline.com set off an online firestorm that has fans worried that DAYS is in danger of going off the air. The piece stated that the entire cast has been released from their contracts and the show is going on an indefinite hiatus. Multiple outlets picked up the tip and cancellation rumors quickly gathered steam around the web — and the world. Here’s the story: The 54-year-old soap’s current contract with NBC expires in September 2020; at this point in time, the show has banked enough episodes to run through 2020 to the end of the current deal, and negotiations are taking place for a pickup. “The show is currently taping eight months ahead of air, and that has resulted in the show’s pickup possibly coming after it has…

Chelsea does her best to reassure Nick that this is her decision, but he is not convinced.” Chelsea insists that she only wants to help Connor. “While Connor has made some progress since Chelsea has been spending time at the penthouse, she realizes that he still has a long way to go,” Griffith notes. “While Chelsea knows that Nick is upset at the thought of her moving…

days’s eric to sarah: dump xander

▪ Eric visits Sarah to discuss a custody arrangement for baby Mickey. “It’s tense,” says Linsey Godfrey (Sarah). “Sarah has wronged Eric in a very, very bad way. There’s going to be a lot of tension between them. Sarah’s always done everything for Eric and acted in what she believes to be Eric’s best interest. It’s a very interesting thing because he feels mad and angry and betrayed by Sarah, rightfully so, but he also is understanding of her reasoning.” Sarah is taken aback when Eric reveals he has a condition for their joint custody: Xander needs to be out of Mickey’s life. “She’s scared; she has very little leg to stand on,” notes Godfrey. “If they went to court for custody, because she kept Mickey’s paternity a secret, the judge…

b&b: steffy confronts hope

▪ After learning that Hope attempted to cover up Thomas’s “demise”, Steffy has something to say to her. “There was a confrontation that already aired where Steffy came at Hope about Liam and the girls,” points out Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy). “This is different because while Steffy is protective of her brother, she’s also been hurt by him. So, there is a dance. Steffy is trying to forgive Thomas for the hurtful things he has done. She may not be quite there yet, but she wants her family to heal. She’s the kind of woman who’s like, she can say whatever she wants about Thomas but if anybody else does, then there’s an issue.” Steffy makes no bones about Hope’s deception. “Of course, it’s shocking to hear what happened with a…

quick take

with Scott Clifton (Liam, B&B) ▪ After all this Forrester craziness, Liam actually made peace with Bill and is back at Spencer Publications. How do you feel about that? “For me, I didn’t have to do a lot of difficult reaching in terms of acting. I love all the Spencer sets. I love all the scenes where Wyatt and Liam and Justin and Bill are having meetings. I mean, those are some of the most fun moments of the job for me. I think Brad [Bell, executive producer/head writer] and the writers and us as the actors, I think we’ve all earned this moment. It’s not coming from out of nowhere, and it felt good.” Liam also has a pretty full plate on the home front with two daughters and Douglas. “Yeah,…
