The changing of the guard is official on Days of our Lives for viewers today on Wednesday’s episode of the NBC soap opera. The airshow was the first script under the new co-head writing regime of Josh Griffith and Dena Higley who replaced Gary Tomlin and Christopher Whitesell.
Since DAYS tapes six months in advance, the episode was written several months ago, but aired today. With the recent news that Higley has taken a leave of absence, the future is unknown at this time if Griffith will continue to be head writer of the show solo, or if as has been rumored, he would be adding another writer from the Y&R staff to work with him, while Higley is out for now.
Although fans of the series have yet to have the opportunity to all that awaits them as the big returns, the murder mystery, and changes and shake-ups to the Salem canvas play out, from interviews On-Air On-Soaps has done with talent, and from all we have heard on social media from cast members, they are thrilled at the writing, the stories, and that DAYS has become quite the “It” place to be and work.
As the credit rolled at the end of today’s episode, Griffith and Higley’s names were there. So, excited to finally see Josh and Dena’s stories begin to play out? Let us know in the comment section below!
