Soap opera fans can rest a little easier knowing that "Days of our Lives" will be renewed.
Fans were worried about the show's fate when months ago it was revealed that the entire cast had been released from their contracts. It was also announced that the show would be going on hiatus.
While the recent announcement of a renewal is great, it hasn't stopped the fears of soap opera viewers.
Years ago, soap operas were once daytime's most popular shows. At one time, there were 10 soap operas on the air. With declining ratings and budget costs, many soap operas were canceled.
Now, there are only 4 shows left and let's take a look at these daytime serials, and if they could end up on the chopping block.
