Casting Cuts Have Started on 'Days of Our Lives'
Is there another reboot in the works?
On the heels of news of the "Days of Our Lives" headwriter shakeup comes buzz that several castmembers have been given the boot. For dedicated fans, this shakeup is starting to feel a bit familiar. It was just about this time last year that the big September reboot, which included returning characters, behind-the-scenes shakeups and a new local hangout, started taking shape.

Matthew Ashford (Jack), Christie Clark (Carrie) and Patrick Muldoon (Austin), who came back to Salem as part of that big reboot, and Sarah Brown (Madison) will all be sent packing, according to Soap Opera Digest. The soap mag warns these cuts are just the beginning.
As fans know, Renee Jones (Lexie) is also on her way out, but that was by her own choice. The actress is retiring from the biz after almost 20 years on the show.
"Days of Our Lives" airs weekdays on NBC.
I agree with some posts here.. these soaps are stupid.. same
story lines rehashed a million times from sunday.. truly
shows for the brain dead.
Most certainly won't miss "Austin's" sqeeky voice; bugs me bad! And not NEAR as handsome as the original yummy Austin. Won't miss Jack either. Madison I can take or leave. The show's story lines I agree are "just ok' I tape it now because they go "on and on" about the same thing for several days at a time and I can just fast forward; DOOL needs to take a page out of Young and the Restless, that show moves at warp speed compared to Days!
Just when you get into a character you take him away. Leave Austin and Carrie alone. Leave John and Marlana alone. Don't care if you send Madison packing and sometimes I feel like I'm watching the Disney channel with all these kids in the story lines. And for heaven's sake, don't send anybody else to screw things up for Bo and Hope. Can't they be happy for a little while without one of his exes showing up. This is the only soap I watch and if things keep changing I won't be watching it for long. I thought with the return of John and Marlana things were finally going to get interesting again.
