In just over 2 weeks we’ll be welcoming Days of our Lives to its new home and we can’t contain our excitement!

Days of our Lives starts on Monday, 4 September at 5:30PM on e.tv and these are the reasons why we’re so excited:

1. It’s iconic

Days of our Lives aka Days, as it’s affectionately known, is one of the longest running soapies and has been entertaining audiences around the world since 1965. Who doesn’t know the words: "Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives"?

2. New home

The way we see it, after all these years Days is finally coming home, where it belongs. That’s over 50 years of world-class, multi award-winning television right here on e.tv.

3. The storyline

Over the years, the storylines have involved everything a soapy needs and more including romance, adventure, mystery, comedy and drama. Remember when Marlena Evans was possessed by the devil!? On e.tv we’ll pick up at episode 12368 where Nicole tries her best to clear Eric's name.

4. The characters

Stefano DiMera was hailed the greatest villain of all time. Unfortunately the actor Joseph Mascolo has since passed away. However, you can expect to see firm Days favourites including Marlena Evans (Deirde Hall), Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney), Hope Williams Brady (Kristian Alfonso), Bo Brady (Peter Reckell) and Nicole Walker (Arienne Zucker) to name a few.

5. Timing

They say timing is everything right?! No more staying up until 10:30PM to catch your Days fix. Now you can come home from work, kick off your shoes and enjoy your favourite daytime soapy at 5:30PM.
