Days of Our Lives, one of the longest-running scripted television series in the world, has aired nearly every weekday since November 8, 1965. The series was created by the husband-and-wife team of Ted Corday and Betty Corday. In 1975, the immense success of the show led to it being elongated from 30 to 60 minutes.
In 2005, the show hit its 10,000th episode. In 2013, it hit number 12,000.
In 2015, the series celebrated its 50th anniversary, with many of the main cast members coming back and reuniting for the event. In an interview with Flicks and the City Clips, Peter Reckell, who plays Bo Brady, was asked what it was like returning for the event. He said, “When I first came back, it was strange because my character’s in captivity, in prison, and I’m laying there on the floor… they’re fixing some lights… I’m laying there on the floor, and I was just thinking, ‘This is like the old days. It’s like I never left.'”
Kristian Alfonso offered, “Where do I start? The show is so magnificent right now. I have probably 30 scripts right now sitting in my dressing room. I was gone for a couple weeks… there is so much to look forward to. What is just mind-blowing is what the writers have written.”
The original cast of Days of Our Lives consisted of seven main characters. In 1975, it grew to consist of 27 actors. Over the past few years, many of the show’s former cast members have returned. In 2012 and this past April, the show won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Writing Team. In 2013, and 2018, it took home the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series.
