Freddie Smith And Chandler Massey Off DAYS
On his YouTube channel, Freddie Smith (Sonny) revealed that he and co-star Chandler Massey (Will) are leaving DAYS. “Chandler and I were released from our contracts, so we will not be filming any more episodes after this week,” he reported. “Well, depending on schedules, the next couple of weeks. So I am going to share what happened, what we know. I wanted to let everyone know, rip the Band-Aid off with this video. Essentially what happened is we came back … so we had that big two-and-a-half month or nine-week break. I was under the impression … I knew this going back, that I was coming back for six episodes and contracts hadn’t been signed yet. I said, ‘Great, there are a lot of things going on over there, a lot of things are up in the air. Great I am coming back for six episodes.’ We hit people up [via] DM from the show and Chandler and I were trying to figure out if we were the only two coming back for six or are there other people that are just coming back for six. Once we got confirmation that other people were coming back for six, we figured ‘Okay, good, we are not getting written off.’ As the scripts started coming in, we started talking more. I just go , ‘Man, this doesn’t look good. This doesn’t look like we are going to be signed onto a contract.’ But we are like, ‘There is no way we are going to be let go.’ Without giving it away … I obviously can’t give away spoilers. What I will say is our last day is going to be September 18, 2020.” Massey tweeted, “Wish it weren’t coming to an end, but I will be forever grateful to everyone who went on this journey with us.” Smith posted, “I will miss Salem so much!! Thank you all for the incredible love and support throughout the years. I really feel we told a love story that will live on forever.” To watch the full video, click here.
