An era ends at NBC.
Days of our lives, the longest-running entertainment series the network has ever aired, will leave the network in September. The new home will be on NBCUniversal’s Peacock streaming platform starting September 12.
NBC will fill the space vacated by Days during the day with NBC News Now, an hour-long show anchored by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Vicky Nguyen and Morgan Radford. Affiliates also have the option to add local news to the hour.
“This programming shift benefits both Peacock and NBC and reflects our broader strategy of using our portfolio to maximize reach and strengthen viewer engagement,” NBCUniversal Television and Streaming president Mark Lazarus said in a statement. “With a large percentage of the Days of our lives To audiences already digitally watching, this move allows us to build the show’s loyal fan base on streaming while also bolstering daytime network offerings with an urgent, live programming opportunity for partners and consumers.”
Library Episodes from Days of our lives stream on Peacock, and the service has also housed two miniseries (subtitled Beyond Salem) in the past year.
