“We’re very excited about having more great ‘Days’ in Salem,” said Bruce Evans, NBC executive vice president, current programming said via statement. “[Executive producer] Ken Corday and his team continue to tell stories with which the ‘Days’ loyal audience feels a deep connection. We congratulate them on their remarkable daytime legacy and look forward to what they have planned for the new season.”
