Instead, NBC and Sony Pictures Television are reportedly in talks to renew the show. If it does get renewed, it is expected to resume production in March 2020, according to TVLine.

One source told the website that “Days of our Lives” shoots eight months in advance, so there are enough episodes to last through next summer, even if production ends this month.

NBC did not immediately return FOX Business’ request for comment on Tuesday afternoon.
