Days of Our Lives comings and goings indicate that Stephen Nichols apparently has one foot out the door in Salem City. That’s because the show’s producers are not extending his contract. The actor, who has been on Days of Our Lives since 1985, is best known for his role as Steve Johnson.
According to She Knows Soaps, the actor could not reach an agreement with the show’s executive producers, which means he will be departing the soap very soon. The news isn’t official yet though, as neither Days of Our Lives nor Stephen Nichols have made any comments about the rumors.
Still, this hasn’t stopped fans from speculating as to what might have happened behind the scenes. After all, Stephen is one of the show’s most beloved characters. But because he was unable to reach a mutual contract agreement when his contract expired in March, he will reportedly be exiting his role later this year. Insiders say that his exit will be sometime in mid-September.
While no one knows what’s in store for Stephen’s future, one thing is for certain: fans will miss seeing him as Steve Johnson. Right now he doesn’t have any other projects in the pipeline.
In addition to his work on Days of Our Lives, he’s also had a role on General Hospital, The Young and the Restless and the television series Crash back in 2009. Here’s hoping that fans will see him back on the small screen, sooner rather than later!
