NBC announced today that Days of our Lives has been renewed for a 52nd season. Negotiations between NBC and Sony TV have now been successfully completed, ensuring that the network's last-remaining soap opera will be staying on its afternoon schedule for at least another year.

The veteran series began over half a century ago, premiering in 1965 as a half-hour drama and expanding to a full hour a decade later. The show and its cast and crew have won over 40 Daytime Emmy Awards, including 2015's win for Outstanding Daytime Drama. Last month saw the series air its 13,000th episode.
