In a statement released by the show to Soap Opera Digest on the writing change they note: “We look forward to the fresh and compelling stories these changes will bring to Salem.”

Carlivati took to Twitter after SOD broke the story relating: “Like Sands Through the Hourglass… #Honored #Excited #Grateful #GuessIHaveToGetBackToWork”

Anderson Thomas commented on her facebook page: “I was a huge fan of the show before I met my mentor, Pat Falken Smith, and was lucky enough to also be mentored by the phenomenal Betty Corday,” she wrote. “I am am thrilled, and honored, to be returning, and especially with Ron who’s a brilliant storyteller and great guy. Upwards!”

Buckle up, DAYS fans! Exciting changes in store for the long-running NBC soap opera!  More on this developing story as information comes to light.

    Yes Days Future looks brighter now. Thank God Days did not hire Jill Phelps, she is known as the soap killer. Ron should have been hired 2 years ago, let’s hope for the best for Days. Ron can save Days,. I have faith in him.

    NO! He “killed” GH; now he will kill Days!

    Justin replied

    Nancy, I’m sorry, but you’re completely wrong. He did NOT kill GH, the show is still on the air. Also, he completely revitalized it when he took over and saved it from a SUREFIRE cancellation. That is not an opinion, it is a fact. I have faith that he can do the same for DAYS. I believe in him. Let me put it this way: If anyone can save this show, it is Ron Carlivati.

    Dean replied

    Rumor is Ron, wants to bring back Will Horton, Jack and Bo Brady. I hope this is true. My prediction The Dimeras kidnapped Will, Bo and Jack.

    I am so torn! Most of Ron’s work on OLTL was good! He utilized all the vets…respected history, wrote a balanced show between drama and camp, and genuinely seemed to care about the show.

    At first his work on GH seemed promising but he proceeded to do the exact opposite of what he did on OLTL. He fired and backburnered vets, showed no regard whatsoever for the past or history, wrote ludicrous over the top stories constantly, and mocked actors and fans who spoke against him.

    Whatever caused such a drastic shift (a lot of reports of drunkenness and/or drugs) in his writing style and demeanor, it was bad. He left GH a gutted, soulless, barren wasteland of newbies and nobodies with its lowest ratings ever!! While on the contrary he took OLTL out on a high note and left viewers breathless for more well after cancellation.

    I have no idea what he will do WITh DAYS but one thing is very clear at this point……this is DAYS last chance and likely last headwriter switch. No more reboots and refreshes. This is it!! Things he cannot do…..trash a core family the way he did the Quartermainrs on GH. Days is all about family. He cannot make characters into zombie caricatures who only serve as plot points. DAYS’ characters are too strong and well defined for that.

    He cannot just willy nilly start bringing people back from the dead because DAYS has gone way too far in that department and fans have been jerked around too many times. He cannot make evil win all the time. Thats not what people want to see. He cannot allow characters who have grown and matured to regress into childish past behaviour or evil tendencies just to advance plot.

    Despite how much I loathed his work ln GH, and his shameful social media antics…I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt for DAYS becsuse I care about the soap genre and care about DAYS. DO NOT let this be a vanity project for him!! Let him realize that hr has been handed a special gift as the writer who will either save DAYS…or be the last writer of it…as he was for network OLTL..

    Let him focus on love and relationships. Let him write some campy over the top stuff!! Days is known for that stuff…but keep romance and couples as the focus. To his credit…he is very imaginative. Also….he is very good at weaving umbrella stories. What I am hoping is that he was not hired as just the writer to tie up loose ends! I hope he will be given a chance to boost ratings as he did during GH’s 50th! But lets not forget how that happened!!

    The ratings rose during GH 50th solely because of the focus on veterans and romance. Weeks and weeks went by when we didnt see any of Sonny or the mob. Towards the end of his reign when it was all Sonny and all mob is when the ratings were all time low!

    I sincerely wish Ron the best at this opportunity! May he write like he did at OLTL…for the vets…lots of humour…lots of suspense…character over plot. Lets hope he can rejuvenate DAYS! But if not…at least we know he can write one hell of a finale!

    IIRC DAYS is the soap that had it’s star actress be possessed by the devil, and have another actress portray multiple characters of different genders (and some were not split personalities). With that history, I think Ron Carlivati’s tendency to go a little cray-cray with outrageous plotlines will be par for the course.

    Emma replied

    The role of Stefano Dimera, will now be played by Ron Raines ex Alan Spaulding. Let’s make this happen.

    Christie replied

    Wow- never thought I would be receptive to a Stefano recast, but that does sound fascinating!!
    Wish all the best for the writing team- considering I was among those fearing the worst with the Megyn Kelly hire I’ve done a turnaround and am pretty optimistic now that Mr. Carlivati has been hired.

    That is a fact, that is reality!

    Yankee fan replied

    DOOL fans always talk big every time they get a new writing team and always start attacking GH every time wishing it death.

    DOOL is getting cancelled cause there is NO STABILITY IN THE WRITING ROOM cause no show can survive a new regime every six months. KC isn’t talking about the 100th reboot to save DOOL cause KC knows that NBC is gonna cancel anyday now.

    DOOL fans need to stop wishing bad things for GH. DOOL just hired a guy GH fired for the worst ratings ever. Worry about DOOL.

    Days is getting better now, but with Ron it will be the bomb. Ron is a smart man and Days ratings will be way up. GH is painful to watch right now. If I WERE Genie Francis, I would leave GH AND GO BACK TO Days as Diana Coville.

    AJ replied

    Not sure what RC going to Days has to do with GH’s current ratings. Do you think GH watchers are going to go to Days because of RC? No. Will former viewers return to Days? Maybe. Odd that you all seem to wish for Days’ success at the cost of GH’s failure. How about wishing success for both? I mean, Days technically is thisclose to cancellation because of Megan Kelly. Obviously, this is a great sign that it won’t be canceled, but why don’t you all concentrate on your soap (Days) and stop wishing bad things on another soap. Very odd of many of you folks…

    Lew S. replied

    AJ, I totally agree with you. Wish RC the best!

    Rose replied

    Hi Su…When I read this announcement my first thoughts went to you. I’m sure you would prefer Ron was coming back to GH. I haven’t been a Day’s viewer. May try now. Want to support all of our soaps. Mainly because from what I’ve read on MF the past few years, the show has been in a funk, and always the question would NBC renew it’s contract. While I wasn’t a great fan of everything Ron did on GH, sounds like Day’s might get some needed “energy” from his style.

    You are so right!! That is the main reason this show has struggled for years..They hire a big star or new regime and by the time they air, its months and months later and by then they lose all the buzz and some fans just forget.

    Great move nonetheless for DOOL!!!

    James R. Poissant replied

    Balls of fire—I forgot about that. I hate they go into production so far in advance because if storylines are bombing, it takes a long time to fix it and by then, people have tuned out. In this case, we’re going to have to wait until summer to see the magic of Ron.

    Shay replied

    That’s kind of you, jimh, but all I can say is that the good people of Salem best padlock all their mausoleums, or else they may soon discover a spate of “crypt trysts” occurring in their dearly departeds’ sacred places of eternal rest.

  7. Scott (ATWT Fan) says:

    I am truly torn. I’ve never been a huge fan of Ron Carlivati’s writing, and his tenure at General Hospital was messy. Truly messy. He had [some] highlight moments but, for the most part, it was messy. Plus, I was really enjoying the joint team of Dena Higley and Ryan Quan at Days of Our Lives. But, I have a feeling, that we’ll be getting a LGBT frontburner storyline, and that we may get some insane storylines coming up. Unsure how I am feeling; willing to give it a try but, damn, yeah!

    Reply

    DAVID replied

    Why do you automatically assume you are getting an lgbt storyline? Hello? They have had one and still do. Sonny. Will. Paul. Ringing a bell?

    Reply

    Scott (ATWT Fan) replied

    First, it would be “a LGBT”, grammatically.

    Secondly, I assume so because of Ron’s history as a headwriter. He did it on One Life to Live and attempted to do it on General Hospital. If we did get a major front burner, it would be his foreseen stereotype of a same-gender “relationship”.

    Michael (not Fairman) replied

    It would be “an LGBT.” It goes by pronunciation. “Give me an ell,” etc.

    Well, unless it’s pronounced “ligbit,” or something like that. I guess it could be. I’ve always said it ell-gee-bee-tee-(cue) but I might be saying it wrong.

    Days is (or was) already solidly established with a front-burner gay storyline; it would be nice if RC resuscitated it, if only because NBC and Sony did such a disservice in the way they ended it. And I think he would do it justice.

    I liked most of his time at GH, and I really liked his time at OLTL (where he was also hired to repair the damage done by Dena the Disaster Higley) so I will probably go back to watching Days, at least long enough to check out what he’s doing.

    Tim Welles replied

    Well, about two years ago or so, the Sonny and Will storyline was great and it was made more interesting when Paul was thrown into the mix depicting gay people as having jealousy, tenderness, complications – just as straight couples do. I thought it was very innovative and progressive – and having the hotel bell hop around added to the intrigue -
    then, new writers came along, squashed the gay storyline, Sonny left town, Will was strangled to death in front of our eyes – and they reverted to the same old “so and so is pregnant but no one knows who the father is” which has been done to death since ice covered the earth.
    So, I am in favor of having more gay characters added to the mix and no, I don’t expect it to be “gays of our lives” but I would like them to be more than supportive players -

    Reply

    Scott (ATWT Fan) replied

    I’m not saying there hasn’t been a main focus on LGBT before on the soap. I’m merely saying I see it becoming more of the frontburner it was back when Will and Sonny were introduced, etc.

    Nanvy, are you providing with an alternate fact? ABC was going to cancel GH unless the ratings went up. Carlivari did that. You may have not liked the show under his reign but many did as the ratings proved.

    David replied

    So Nancy, are you offering me an #alternatefact?

    ABC said it was going to cancel GH and brought in Ron and Frank as a last ditch effort. Within a year, ratings proved to be so good it could change time slots. It only started to drop off the last six months of Ron’s reign.

    JMER replied

    Well he gave it his best shot, however, his best shot with GH was pretty terrible though not as bad as Guza overall. Us poor GH fans. Don’t know how we put up with that when I return to old clips. Guard your SuperCouples and vets, Days fans!

    Reply

    Tim Welles replied

    I have to agree with Mo, I actually do not see any real need for the character to be honest about it. She was pregnant, lost the baby and Joey blamed himself – now, okay, what was the point of recasting someone the audience barely related to? Personally, Joey bores me to tears anyway and (although I am certainly not a teen) the teeny bopper storylines are a little thin and uninteresting – maybe I don’t relate as well to them but even at that, some of the very young actors don’t cut it and if you add to that some flimsy scripts….well, you know – they need to concentrate on the seasoned pros and
    characters and keep the teen characters in school -

    Oh yes, that was truly awful. This show needs to move forward and jump on some modern ideas – Have some blonde haired big mouth guy run for office on the show, someone in his late 60′s and have the town expose him for what he is. Have a character decide he is transgender and feel out of place in Salem. Have Joey shave his head and become a cloistered Monk. Have the teen actors all decide to go to an out of State College (Yay!) –
    I am kidding but there ARE things they could write about other than so and so had a baby and so and so is the real mother blah blah blah – been there, done that, it’s not 1983 anymore, get with it.

Now reveal Will is alive, Recast EJ with Simon from ATWT, bring back Sami, Austin and Carrie. Bring back Shawn and Belle with a GOOD story. Beef up Lani, and improve the teen writing like in the heyday of Shawn/Belle/MiMi/Chloe/Philip of yesteryear. Recast Cassie Brady and bring her back. Recast Peter Blake as well. Just my short list.

    Jenny I was recently feeling the same way until this news. So NBC IS in effect doing all they can to up the viewership. ..and Ron Carlivati’s brand of crazy story telling is well suited to what people came to love and be shocked by during the James E Reilly tenure. The fact that Sheri Anderson is there to walk him through the shows history also cements this fact. They don’t want to lose the show and this time around its do or die. .so no doubt there will be one more year extension in the hope he pulls the show up in the ratings. As bombastic as he is he for sure will do just that.

    I always love all these doomsday scenarios about GH. People that don’t like the current writers so they invent these stories to make it sound like the show is doing worse than it is. They were only 6,000 viewers behind Y&R in the 18-34 demo and 60,000 behind in the 18-49 demo in the last ratings numbers I saw. GH is going nowhere. DOOL is the show with one foot in the grave, that’s what you should be worried about getting cancelled.

    I think this is so, so exciting! Ron’s writing got me into GH and I particularly loved his anniversary episodes which made every April something to look forward to. I really thought the writing from the Dena/Ryan pairing was getting interesting (but at times too slow) so I hope the pacing picks up a bit.

    The only concern I have:
    What does the next five months worth of storylines mean? Is it going to be slow/boring for the next five months? I would assume that might be the case if they are restructuring the writing team like this?

    I just hope the next few months don’t impact any possible renewal…

    The cynic in me wonders, has Ron been brought in to wrap things up? I sure hope not…

I find it repugnant that Chloe would steal Nicole’s embryo in the first place and carry the fetus to full term without telling Nicole. Then to have Chloe deny Nicole access to her biological child. With this story line the current writers have turned Chloe from a loving, caring and kind woman to a heartless b@@ch.

    Chloe didn’t steal the embryo, Susan. She had written permission to try as often as necessary for conception.

    I don’t see Chloe as a heartless bitch. She clearly struggled through her decision making. Also, a heartless bitch would be one who hands over a baby whom could suffer in the crossfire of a criminal.

    I understand how anxious the situation is, especially since Nicole has ached for a child of her own, but Chloe’s motivation isn’t malicious, it’s almost maternal. If Nicole chooses Deimos, could and would there be blood on Chloe’s hands for handing Holly over?

    Regardless, the storyline will most likely be over by the time Carlivati’s DAYS begin. Hopefully, Holly will still be around.

    Hopefully Holly will have been handed over to Nicole after her lawyer has destroyed Chole on the witness stand. Chloe having permission does not negate her moral and LEGALLY responsibility to have informed Nicole at the very beginning.

    Mo replied

    I like Chloe and am glad she’s back. I understand that Chloe carried the baby and feels maternal towards her and doesn’t want her to be raised by Deimos. Hey, court cases between surrogates and parents have happened IRL. I am enjoying the story and Arianne Zucker was great yesterday.

    Bit torn. OLTL was my favorite show and much of that had to do with RC’s writing. But, he does tend to rehash certain plots ( DID, anyone? ). The one good thing is that he can be inventive. But, will Ken Corday allow that much leeway?

    I can see him trimming some of the cast, especially the young adult sector. He has never really written extensively for that age group.

    Really wish DOOL did not film so far in advance because it takes too long for changes to hit the screen and I think some of the atrocious story lines could drive viewers away in the interim.

    Man, I sure hope this is the shot in the arm that DAYS needs. I love Ron. However, all these consistent changes at DOOL have me worried still. If you look at soap history, those shows that go through back stage changes in writers or EP’s on a constant basis, tend to see their ratings continue to slide. If DOOL goes under during Ron’s writing, he will be the one blamed and not the people who’ve been in charge for years and made these constant changes. The audiences like consistency in their writing and characters. I hope the best for Ron and the show.

    I’d rather they didn’t bring back Jack, there’s a reason he’s been killed off various times. And his death has given so much material for his kids Abby and JJ over the years and still. He fell down an elevator shaft while saving his daughter, how could they realistically bring him back? Personally I think they need to bring back Bill Horton, Jennifer and Lucas’s Dad. Why has he stayed away from Salem for decades when his kids and grandkids and great grandkids are there?

    This is shocking news. I gave up on DOOL a month ago because it’s too slow and the stories are boring. I’ll have to go back when Ron’s stories start to air.

Too Days continues to tape so far in advance. From what I saw last, they need Ron’s intervention immediately.

    Agree – we’re looking at what, sometime in July 2017 before his work airs? We are on a never ending “give it time, there is a DAYS reboot coming!” train. I really hope this is put-up-or-shut-up, and if Ron cannot at least make Days below average (which would be a massive improvement), NBC needs to put the Horse down for good. Remember how Josh G. was coming to save the show? Then Will got murdered, Josh mentally checked out 10 minutes after he got there, and well…………….what we have now.

    People credit him with saving OLTL; in reality the show hit all time ratings lows during his tenure which led to ABC’s decision to cancel the show. Right before ABC’s announcement he did get his act together and ratings started to rise but it was too late.

    He has the ability to write some really good stories. Viki’s Paris, Texas storyline was great and the bullying storyline started out great but then became a campy, plot-driven mess with Stacy having plastic surgery to look just like her sister Gigi..ughh, what nonsense.

    Who can forget his campy Moldavia mess, or how he botched the return of Tina or the worst of all: Dorian suddenly announces she is a lesbian in order to win the Mayoral race. Come on!!!

    ABC planned to dump OLTL all along. They moved AMC to LA to save money and keep the show, then AMC’s ratings tanked and went lower than that of OLTL which had started to rise. They could not justify canceling the higher rated show so they killed them both.

    Reply

    jdshack2 replied

    That’s utter nonsense. One life’s ratings were ALWAYS better than AMC….especially over the last few years they were both on. The ONLY reason why GH was saved over OLTL is because ABC has an IRON CLAD contract with the creator of General Hospital’s children who they have to pay royalties to. Too much of a legal mess so why not just ax the second one they own.

    Those two worked as a team, with their ill-fated attempt to turn GH into OLTL 2.0, and then bloating the cast with newbies. Ron likes newbies because head writers get royalty payments for the characters they create, as long as those characters appear on the show. Even after the writers themselves are gone. Ron is still cashing in on his GH bloat, and all the mindless characters who descended on Port Charles during his reign.

    Will he do any better under a different producer on Days? I doubt it. He won’t have the access to the characters from a dead show, but he will still have the newbie bloat, and all the endlessly recycled stories about DID and “who’s the daddy” baby stuff.

    Sparks replied

    Actually, it was both, Frank and Ron, who bloated the cast. The writer wanted new characters and the producer approved the hiring. And as Satan said, the show was overrun with new characters and actors, who became the focus of stories. New characters aren’t inherently a bad thing, but they shouldn’t come in and force out the old characters, which is exactly what Ron did on GH. I predict he will use the long time characters as a backdrop to a flood of newbies, and get really angry with the Days fans who don’t like it.

    Shay replied

    Hey, Satan, if Ron appropriates some of the soap refugees who have landed without welcome in Port Charles over these past few years, he may just save GH, even if it means designating Salem as the new sanctuary city for displaced daytime actors.

    I agree to an extend with RC’s writing. How he made OLTL go out on a high note, I don’t feel that he sunk GH, but…I do feel that some of his Story telling was a big outrageous for GH. Maybe RC will do a bit of Reilly stuff. When the ratings were up. Yet also keep it very family oriented. Would love to see him bring back Kassie as EVE. Bring back Billie Reed but not (lisa Rinna) Cast Ron Raines as the New Stefano. (If not James then the next perfect choice). And get rid of some of the useless characters Like Dario and Mr Hernandez and Jade. Find a great recast for Sierra and give us some amazing romance. For instance Get Brady and Chole back together.

    All in All, where RC is concerned he is going to do one of 2 things. Either Sink or Swim. Hopefully he can make DOOL fresh again as he did with OLTL!

    I tuned into ONE LIFE TO LIVE every day when Ron was head writer there. I will always believe it was a mistake for ABC to cancel their top rated daytime drama. Ron wasn’t responsible for the GH debacle. It was jarring and disappointing to see OLTL characters who eased the pain of the cancellation then be off the canvas and return as different characters. It wasn’t Ron or Frank’s fault. It was the ridiculous pettiness of two companies fighting without regard for the spurned fans and the product we were given. I love Michelle Stafford and Maura West, but no one can act through the losing hand the clueless network executives caused and win someone like me over. I left GH and wished Ron would get a gig more deserving of his talent and respect for the genre and the history of the shows he writes.

    I once thought Ron would be excellent for Y&R. It would be a different kind of challenge and a different audience. I know he would have respected the show and its audience and be able to grab new younger viewers. Y&R has decided to stabilize a decade of damage by returning the keys to the ones responsible for making it #1 in the first place. That’s probably for the best, but Y&R isn’t on life support. DAYS is. DAYS needed to make a bold move. I think this hiring is as smart a move as any, but how many times can Corday reboot this show only to hire Ms. Higley back? He needs a vision like Bill Bell had and stay with it. Is DAYS going to be about action and romance or character-driven family drama or campy supernatural shock that pushes the envelope?

    I think the problem is Corday. It’s his show but maybe if he wants it saved, he should give control to the Bell Dramatic Serial Company, and maybe CBS could pick it up. DAYS is a jewel and survived until the final four. I’d rather see the genre have bottomed out than see it continue to die. I’d also like ONE LIFE TO LIVE return, now that ABC has the rights back. NBC isn’t committed to a winning daytime lineup unless it’s yet another hour added to the TODAY franchise. CBS can market DAYS much more successfully and incorporate it very well into their winning daytime lineup. ABC needs to finally let the VIEW go because it’s embarrassing to watch these women speak such hate and ignorance day after day. Even Barbara Walters is disappointed with the show her creation has become, and it has happened under the NEWS division’s watch. That’s very telling about the state of news in this country and explains a lot of the ignorance and division that are getting worse by the day. I digress though. ABC needs to bring back OLTL or AMC or some hybrid of the two.

    These are my thoughts about what should happen to save this genre, namely DAYS right now. I’ll talk about GH another time because that’s a whole train wreck of its own. Also, I’d like everyone to stop making it DAYS vs GH and making everything divisive. Nothing is one way or another. Nothing is always or never. The truth lies in the middle, but we have to come out of our corners and talk to each other and love each other. Whether it’s soap message boards or politics, we have to stop the polarization, the character assassinations, the assumptions of the worst about others, the villainizing of those who have different opinions and beliefs, etc. Social media is a wonderful tool, but we are destroying ourselves from within, so I urge everyone to tamp down the anonymous rhetoric or meanness. Also, if you choose that tone or choose to spread lies or say awful things, don’t act all righteous and offended when the one you injure fights back because everyone deserves the right to defend themselves. So don’t act all righteous if your passive aggressiveness is answered with open hostility. I ramble, but we all need to get our acts together, here and everywhere. To bring this back to our soaps, think about soap executives reading your words. Do you want our shows that are left canceled? What is GH vs DAYS going to accomplish these days but yet another jewel of daytime dead and gone. Is that what you want? Words matter and words online are seen by anyone. Now is the time for American solidarity in all things, and in this case, saving a beautiful genre from being extinguished forever. I don’t want that. Do you?

I feel it is time for Jack to be alive and move on with his brother Steve and Adrienne and the children and new love for Jack. Send Jennifer with Frankie both hypocrites deserve each other. Matthew Ashford needs to return maybe as different character.
