Days Of Our Lives (DOOL) Spoilers: Steve And Kayla’s Future, Are Stephen Nichols And Mary Beth Evans Leaving?
Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers reveal that there is talk that one supercouple could be leaving. The specific soap wasn’t mentioned and no names were released. However, we have to wonder if it is Steve “Patch” Johnson (Stephen Nichols) and Kayla Johnson (Mary Beth Evans). Before you get too worked up about “Stayla,” hear us out. Then, let us know if you think this couple could be leaving DOOL.
Contract Negotiations And Low Pay
DOOL spoilers reveal the soap is famous for its rock bottom pay. While other soaps have general budgets, Days has a skeletal budget. One area that always gets hit when additional budget cuts are made is the cast. It is the one part of the budget that is the most expensive for a soap, but is also the most flexible. You can’t really cut too much from other areas without affecting production. Despite fans wanting their favorites and vets to stay, sometimes it’s just not possible.
The soap often has to face the decision of whether to cut one vet or three minor characters. Due to the cast already not being that big, the vets or fan-favorites are often cut. In the soap bosses’ minds, three characters — even if they are only recurring — can provide more storytelling possibilities than one vet. However, fans do not agree with this and are quite vocal about it.
The NBC soap is also known for cast members coming and going all the time. Contracts are usually an issue and it seems there are troubled negotiations once again. According to Soap Opera Digest, one fan-favorite couple from one of the US soaps is having issues with negotiations.
Days Of Our Lives Spoilers: No Real Storylines
When it comes to Steve and Kayla, they are a fan-favorite couple. Evans has remained part of the cast for many years. Sometimes she bounces from recurring to contract and back again, but she’s been pretty constant. As for Nichols, he has left and returned multiple times. Right now, Steve and Kayla don’t really have much as far as storylines go.
Ava Vitali (Tamara Braun) is supposedly reformed and Tripp Johnson (Lucas Adams) has been cleared of rape. Kayla is getting mixed up with Dr. Snyder (Michael Lowry) and Gwen Rizczech’s (Emily O’Brien) mess. However, with Dr. Snyder rumored to be killed, that will be the end of that story.
Vets Shown Less, Younger Cast Growing
Days of Our Lives spoilers reveal that lately, the vets are shown a lot less and the younger cast is getting all the juicy storylines. They are even adding even more to the younger crowd. If this trend continues, the vets will soon fade away. So, it only makes sense that Evans and Nichols might want to head somewhere else.
Days Of Our Lives Spoilers: ‘Stayla’ Gets Happy Ending
If Evans and Nichols are the supercouple that is looking to leave due to contract negotiations, will they go to another soap? That remains to be seen, but the one silver lining is “Stayla” will have their happily ever after.
