Sand will continue to fall through that iconic hourglass. Deadline is reporting NBC has renewed Days of Our Lives for the 2016-17 TV season, with an option for an additional year. 

Negotiations between Sony Pictures Television, Corday Productions and NBC took  place during the month of February. The Days of Our Lives writing staff temporarily halted storytelling efforts until a deal could be reached.  I hear NBC wants the show to go back to a more traditional production model, as opposed to taping the serial five months in advance of airing.
