Peacock has renewed “Days of our Lives” for two additional seasons, keeping the daytime drama series in production through a historic 60th anniversary season.
According to the service, since the show’s move last September to become the only streaming exclusive daily serial in the United States, “Days of our Lives” has been a consistent top 10 title on Peacock, making the renewal a no-brainer for the Corday Productions produced series in association with Sony Pictures Television.
In November, Soap Opera Network had heard rumblings of a renewal being on the horizon, with another two-year deal likely. This has now been confirmed with today’s announcement. The previous deal, announced in May 2021, gave the show its first multi-year pickup in over a decade.
Ken Corday is the show’s executive producer, with Albert Alarr continuing as co-executive producer. Ron Carlivati continues to serve as the show’s head writer.
Since its launch on November 8, 1965, “Days of our Lives” has received 61 Daytime Emmy Awards, including its most recent win in 2022 for Outstanding Writing for a Daytime Drama. To date, the show has received 392 Daytime Emmy nominations, multiple People’s Choice Awards, GLAAD Media Awards and Prism Awards.
