It has been on Australian TV’s for year but it’s not up to us when it ends.

And it looks like we may be living without Days of Our Lives very soon.

The show, which has been running for 51 years, looks set to be axed after the US network it runs on, NBC, looks to introduce a new news programme for anchor Megyn Kelly who they have just brought over to the network.

People magazine is reporting that the cast has been told that this year could be its last. 

“Basically, we’ve heard that there won’t be a Days in 2018,” the source said.

Given the departures from the soap the cast may have already seen the end of the tunnel. Australian actor Alexander Bruszt has wrapped his role while Kate Mansi (Abigail Deverauz) and Jen Lilley (Theresa Donovan) are also departing.
