Days of cancellation? According to reports, Days of Our Lives is facing the axe this season or next. Seemingly in preparation for its demise, the show has lost its co-head writer Dena Higley, who has been replaced by scribe Ron Carlivati, Deadline reports.
“Like Sands Through the Hourglass,” Carlivati tweeted tonight, a reference to Days‘ famous spoken-word intro.
Carlivati will be the daytime series’ head writer, with Ryan Quan, co-head writer with Higley, given the newly created Creative Consultant title. Sharing that title will be Days writer Sheri Anderson Thomas. The changes take effect immediately.
The new head writer is well known to soap fans from his stints on both One Life to Live and General Hospital. His tenure at One Life to Live included a Daytime Emmy win in 2008.

Will the cancellation hourglass run dry this season, or next, for Days of Our Lives — or can the soap somehow extend its life cycle? Stay tuned…
