Corday Productions is launching an online complimentary series to "Days of our Lives" that will follow the adventures of the popular duo Chad and Abigail (aka: "Chabby") played by actors Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi. The project was written by head writer Ron Carlivati and will include eight episodes comprised of 6-10 minutes of content each.

NBC has renewed "Days of our Lives" for a landmark 55th season. The series is the longest running series on the network.

Corday Productions releases "The DOOL App" in honor of "Days of our Lives'" 53rd birthday. The soap premiered November 8, 1965 on NBC.

Brandon Beemer and Martha Madison are once again reprising their roles as Shawn Brady and Belle Black, respectively, on "Days of our Lives" beginning this fall.

On Friday, September 15, "Days of our Lives" will be welcoming back three-time Daytime Emmy Award winning actor Chandler Massey to the role of Will Horton. Considering the character was supposed to have died tragically by strangulation during the soap's serial killer storyline in 2015 (when he was played by Guy Wilson), what can fans expect when the character is resurrected very much alive this week? While we still don't know exactly the how, we can at least scratch off "zombie" from the list of possibilities.

Before "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," Lisa Rinna was best known for her portrayal as Billie Reed on NBC's "Days of our Lives." Nearly five years since she last appeared on the soap, the actress is heading back to Salem for another go. Will it be Billie vs. Hope (Kristian Alfonso) 4.0, or will something else capture the character's attention?

Despite claims by "Days of our Lives" executive producer <strong>Ken Corday</strong> that any character killed after September 2015 would remain dead, rumors are running rampant that the soap has secretly been in negotiations with three-time Daytime Emmy Award Winner <strong>Chandler Massey</strong> to reprise his role as Will Horton, who was murdered in October by the necktie killer (Ben Weston, played by <strong>Robert Scott Wilson</strong>) during <strong>Guy Wilson</strong>'s turn in the popular role. Adding fuel to the fire are recent comments by Massey's former publicist, <strong>Jeffrey Ballard</strong>.

Is <strong>Dena Higley</strong>'s reign as co-head writer of "Days of our Lives" over before it even hits the air? According to a <a href="http://daytimeconfidential.com/2015/08/12/report-dena-higley-takes-leave-of-absence-from-days-of-our-lives" target="_blank">report</a> by <em>Daytime Confidential</em> last week, Higley asked for, and was granted, a leave of absence from the show citing personal reasons.

Sydney born actor <strong>Alexander Bruszt</strong>, 32, is joining the cast of NBC's "Days of our Lives" after winning the <a href="https://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2015/04/finalists-announced-for-days-of-our-lives-australian-talent-search">Search for a Star</a> casting search that began in March. Bruszt beat out fellow Aussies <strong>Andrew Steel</strong> and <strong>Tom Dalzell</strong> for the coveted contract role of Flynn, a handsome, rugged Australian doctor who arrives in Salem to do his residency, specifically to gain skills as a surgeon, working under the supervision of Doctor Jonas (<strong>Shawn Christian</strong>).
