‘Days of Our Lives’ on Indefinite Hiatus; What This Means for ‘General Hospital’

DAYS OF OUR LIVES — Pictured: “Days of our Lives” color logo — NBC Photo

Yesterday, November 12th, Soap Opera Breaking News took the soap fandom by storm as the biggest announcement in recent years regarding the soap world was published. It has been confirmed that the entire cast of NBC‘s Days of Our Lives has been released from their contracts.

So you’re probably wondering, what does this mean? Well, it means that all the actors, and the entire staff (lighting, music, etc.) are free to go out and seek new work. They are no longer bound to their contracts, as now DOOL is on indefinite hiatus.

The show is taped about 8 months in advance and it has been reported, there are enough episodes to take the soap opera through Summer. Hopefully by then, the network and show executives will have come up with a solution to keep the nation’s longest running soap opera in production. Lower salaries for the cast has been mentioned as a requirement if the soap does return.

What does this mean for ABC‘s General Hospital? General Hospital is ABC‘s only surviving Daytime Drama after the cancellation of All My Children (ended 2013) and One Life to Live (ended 2012).

Thankfully, DOOL is on an entirely different television network than that of GH, which is on ABC. If it is a cost issue within the network, it doesn’t have anything to do with the status of ABC‘s, General Hospital. There is always a chance the network could follow suit and try something like this to cut costs. There has been no word of this happening to General Hospital over at ABC.

General Hospital Blog will keep fans updated on the status of DOOL. Stay tuned to General Hospital! We cannot lose our show!
