Is Days of Our Lives on during the Olympics?

Days of Our Lives is currently on a break until August 9, 2021, according to Fox News.

The soap opera plans to make its comeback with new episodes at its regular hour after the Olympics are over on August 8.

Fans can also anticipate Backstreet Boys member AJ McLean to make an appearance in the series.

McLean teased his appearance in a TikTok video, saying: “There is a certain daytime TV show that my grandmother and I used to watch growing up. I’ll drop a couple of hints – Bo, Hope, Patch. Ring a bell?

“Your’s truly is making a guest appearance on this show right here. Oh my god, I’m freaking out. So exciting. I hope made you proud grandma.”

NBC renewed Days of Our Lives for two more years so fans can also expect seasons 57 and 58 to air eventually.

Executive producer Ken Corday announced the soap’s renewal in a statement back in May of 2021, saying: “After more than 55 years of bringing drama, adventure and romance to screens around the world, we are thrilled and honored to carry on the ‘Days of our Lives’ legacy for another two years. 

"We are thankful to NBC for their enduring commitment to the show and grateful to continue this wonderful journey with our fans for years to come.”

What is Days Of Our Lives?

The NBC soap opera focuses on its core families, the Hortons, the DiMeras, and the Bradys, who reside in a town called Salem, a fictional Midwestern suburb.

Like other soap operas, Days Of Our Lives often deals with love, family, marriage, adultery, divorce, death, and sex.

Many of the show’s ongoing storylines have involved characters in protracted tragic love triangles or holding secrets that could harm themselves or their loved ones.

Since its start in 1965, the cast members have frequently changed with many actors leaving the show and then sometimes returning.

Frances Reid, who played matriarch Alice Horton, was a regular on the show from its debut until 2007.

The show has been a parody of the sketch comedy series SCTV and the sitcom Friends.

How can I watch Days of Our Lives?

Days Of Our Lives airs weekdays at 1pm on NBC.

The entire series is available to stream on Peacock, which allows users to sign up for free.

Users can also enroll in Peacock Premium for $4.99 or $9.99 a month for extra content.
