It’s an understatement to call it a “long-running” TV series, but a show that has been on the air for more than a half-century has just picked up a renewal. NBC announced today that it will bring back the daytime drama “Days of Our Lives” for a 54th season.
The show aired its 13,000th episode last year. It premiered as a half-hour drama in 1965, expanding to an hour 10 years later.
“Days” has chalked up 52 Emmy Awards over the years, including recently being named Outstanding Daytime Drama in 2013 and 2015. It has compiled a whopping 298 Emmy nominations.
