It looks like the famous Days Of Our Lives hourglass may have finally run out of sand.
According to TMZ, the entire cast of the long-running soap opera have had their contracts terminated.
Reports claim the stars were told not to come back as the show was going on an "indefinite hiatus".
While it is not yet known if the NBC daytime TV show will be getting cancelled, the beloved soap has been struggling in the ratings as talk shows and cable TV have become stiff competition.
However, Days Of Our Lives won't be leaving TV screens just yet.
The soap shoots eight months in advance, meaning episode will at least run through to mid-2020.
The series - which began in 1965 and is currently in its 55th season - is set in the fictional Midwestern town of Salem.
It follows the lives of the Horton, Brady, Kiriakis, Hernandez and DiMera families.
The series was created by husband-and-wife team Ted Corday and Betty Corday.
Many of the cast members stay with the soap opera for decades.
