Happy Days are here again for Days of Our Lives fans! The show is reportedly returning to production before the summer ends. The Bold and the Beautiful is back at work already. Also, The Young and the Restless and General Hospital will be returning to the studios this month to tape new scenes.
Deadline broke the news that emails went out to cast and crew saying that DAYS would be resuming production on Tuesday, September 1.
The show has enough episodes in the can to take them through early October. So, now, after years of being several months ahead, the show will be more like the other three serials and there will be a month between when shows are taped and when they are.
Last year, DAYS embarked on a much-publicized “time jump” in which the show’s storylines went one-year into the future following Jennifer’s (Melissa Reeves) fall, which landed her in a coma. During that time, Adrienne (Judi Evans) died in a car accident. At first, Will (Chandler Massey) and then, later, Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) was believed to be responsible. The actual individual responsible turned out to be Orpheus (George DelHoyo). Another big story that played out after the time jump was Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) and Brady (Eric Martsolf) wrongly believing that their daughter had died.
