DAYS Stars Staying Put
By SOD Posted: Oct 1, 2012

After months of speculation that DAYS would be leaving the Burbank lot for the AMC/HOLLYWOOD HEIGHTS studio in Glendale, Executive Producer Ken Corday announced at the 12,000th episode celebration on set that the show was staying put.

Don't get up. So how are you? What happened, eh? Let me guess, Stefano told you that you could fly,and you jumped off a building. HeHe It's funny right, no I'm sorry Bad EJ, I should'nt be that cruel!

Is this suppose to be the big news? At this point, the show needs is either hire a new writer or canceled it.

SOD suppose to release some big announcement, unless I am mistaken or something.

In their "Stuff We Know & Shouldn't Tell You" section, they alluded to some big Days news coming up. I certainly hope this wasn't it.

I think it is very telling that a contract pickup from NBC was NOT announced at this celebration...it feels like it would have been the perfect time for NBC to give DAYS the go ahead and have it announced on this day.

This actually could be good news or bad news. It's more expensive right? So, perhaps it means they're staying put thru the end of the show, or perhaps it shows NBC is more supportive than we thought. I'm hesitant to believe the latter.

I'm sure this was good news for the cast and crew since the studio is an iconic place for them. Good for the morale at work.

Such a weird announcement...the show renewed their lease at the Burbank lot so they announce it??

IDK. Very strange. LOL.

I don't think this is the "big news." This is news for the actors and I'm happy for them, but this definitely isn't news for the fans and that is SOD's job. I'm glad they are staying where they are, because it would be stupid to move the show now. I'm disappointed, I wanted good news or some kind of confirmation about an actor or actress that I actually love sticking around this show for once.

I wonder if the news SOD is talking about is a contract renewal from NBC...we are fast approaching the time when a decision is usually announced. Their contract with NBC only has 11 months left on it.

Could be good news. Less disruption of the filming schedule.

Why do a big move if DAYS is getting cancelled? No sense in setting up elsewhere if DAYS is on the chopping block. Nothing about the show right now screams renewal.

I think this is actually better news for the crew than for the cast. I was told that if they moved, the new studio had crew who would be used, rather than them bringing over everybody with them from Days, and that a lot of long time employees would probably lose their jobs.

I don't see the problem with SOD considering this "big news." It's certainly big news to those that work on the show. It saves on budget from moving to a new location, rebuilding sets, etc. Also, with the way SOD has been lacking in breaking the news as of late when it comes to soaps, I don't blame them for promoting the hell out of "big news" even if it was just that the show was staying put.

I'm not really sure what to make of this. AMC moved right before they got canceled. Sometimes the economics of these kinds of things aren't totally transparent.

It might have been nice to see larger and more sets. It was said that the new studio was larger and more modern. We see the same sets (Horton square, Dem Mansion, office set, Pub) day after day. I like the Pub before they took the columns out and made it smaller. That one set has been used for Rafe/Carie's office, Lexie office, Daniel's office, Roman's office and police meeting office. I am so sick of seeing it with different decorations. It is one of the things that makes the show look so cheap!

Maybe we will see Salem Place again since they are staying at Burbank. It would be nice to actually see the cast actually outside again.

I doubt it, apparently it has been totally dismantled, outside of a few very dated things left behind.
