Days of our Lives co-head writer Dena Higley and executive producer Ken Corday dish on what fans can expect from the new Higley/Ryan Quan-written material scheduled to begin airing this September.

Days of our Lives' Salem may soon begin to feel like a completely new place because material by the show's latest writing regime, Dena Higley and Ryan Quan, is about to hit the screen.

Higley, who took a leave of absence from the NBC soap earlier this year, took to Twitter to tease a little of what fans can expect now that she's back. "Thanks to my DOOL family for my personal time off," she wrote. "Very excited to co-head write with amazing Ryan Quan. Our material starts to air 9/6."

As fans may recall, news came out last February that former DAYS staff writer Ryan Quan had been promoted to co-head writer after Josh Griffith decided to leave the position and focus on other projects.



DAYS executive producer, Ken Corday, reveals to Soap Opera Digest that Higley and Quan's new material will completely transform the show. "I have been wanting to do this interview for about six months, because we wrote the shows coming up and taped them six months ago, and I knew then I'd be very excited about the show because it is reset," he says. "Dena and Ryan have done a wonderful job of resetting it and getting it out of that dark place it was in."

Higley and Quan's overall vision for the future of DAYS remains a mystery, but an exciting prison break storyline featuring Clyde (James Read), Orpheus (George DelHoyo), and Xander (Paul Telfer) kicks off when the show returns from its two-week Olympic hiatus on Monday, August 22. Will the nefarious characters still be wreaking havoc when Higley and Quan's material starts airing? Tune in on Tuesday, September 6, to find out!

Are you looking forward to an injection of new life into DAYS? What exactly would you like to see change? What are you hoping stays the same? We want to hear from you -- and there are many ways you can share your thoughts.
