A DAY IN OUR LIFE On Days of Our Lives

NEW Fox News articles can now be heard on audio! An era on “Days of Our Lives” is coming to an end. The longest-running show on NBC, the soap opera, will soon have a new home on the Peacock streaming service.

According to a network announcement, “Days of Our Lives” will move to streaming in the upcoming fall, and a new program will air in its place. “NBC News Daily,” which will be the replacement, will be hosted by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Vicky Nguyen, and Morgan Radford.

The final season of “Days of Our Lives” on network television has passed, but the show is still ongoing. Starting on September 12, new episodes will continue to be posted daily on the platform (accessible to Peacock Premium users). Additionally, more than 14,000 of the show’s older episodes will be accessible to subscribers for viewing.

During the shows 57 years on air, it has received 58 Daytime Emmys. Peacock is already home to the “Days of Our Lives” spinoff series “Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem,” a Peacock original show.

Mark Lazarus, chairman of NBCUniversal Television and Streaming said in a statement “This programing shift benefits both Peacock and NBC and is reflective of our broader strategy to utilize our portfolio to maximize reach and strengthen engagement of viewers.”

With a large portion of “Days of Our Lives” viewers already using digital devices to watch the show, Lazarus continued, “This move allows us to grow the show’s devoted fan base on streaming while at the same time bolstering the network daytime offering with an urgent, live programming opportunity for partners and consumers.”

There are now only three daytime soap operas left on network television as the popular soap opera will no longer be broadcast on NBC. The Young and the Restless and “The Bold and the Beautiful” continue to air on CBS, while “General Hospital” continues to air on ABC.
