The entire cast of the daytime drama “Days Of Our Lives” are being released from their contracts, Deadline reports.

“As first reported by TVLine, the soap will go an indefinite hiatus at the end of the month,” reads Deadline.com.

The cost-cutting move comes during the usual renewal window between NBC and the soap’s distributor Sony Pictures TV, reads Deadline.com.

The website reports negotiations for another season of the show on NBC are currently underway.

If "Days" is renewed for a 56th season, the actors will have to be re-signed.
