Days of Our Lives – Will Days of Our Lives Be Preempted on May 30, 2022?
Unfortunately for Days of Our Lives fans, it seems that Days is the only soap that isn’t airing an episode on Memorial Day. Instead, fans will be treated to the French Open. Days of Our Lives is usually off the air for the French open every summer and this year is no different.
However, the news gets worse for Days fans. Monday will not be the only day that Days of Our Lives will not be seen this week as the show will be preempted on Thursday, June 2, and Friday, June 3 as well. This is the shortest week of Days of Our Lives in some time. However, fans won’t miss any shows as they will be shown when the show returns the following week. Will fans see Belle Black (Martha Madison) and E.J. Dimera’s (Dan Feuerriegel) kiss this coming week or is that in the near future?
Days Of Our Lives – The Show Must Go On
While Days of Our Lives will be interrupted for the majority of the week, the show tapes about six months ahead. Also an upcoming treat for Days Of Our Lives fans is the streaming miniseries Days of Our Lives – Beyond Salem Chapter Two. Beyond Salem, Chapter Two will stream on Peacock July 11 through 15. Of course, this isn’t going to help fans this week while the show is off the air. Fans can go on Peacock and watch Days of Our Lives Beyond Salem and A Very Salem Christmas while waiting for the new episodes to air around the tennis match.
