The series, which has been on the air since 1965, will pass its 48-year mark in November and will air its 12,000th episode on Friday, Jan. 11.
"We are thrilled to announce that Days of Our Lives is not going anywhere. It is NBC's longest-running drama series by far and is one of the most historic brands in television," said NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke. "We commend Ken Corday and the entire creative team on continuing to keep the stories and characters fresh, exciting and relevant year after year."
It's been a good week for soaps, as Prospect Park on Monday said it will officially revive canceled soaps All My Children and One Life to Live.
