Shocker: Who is Leaving Days of Our Lives
It was widely reported in November that Days of Our Lives fired the entire cast and was on the verge of being cancelled. The report was overblown and the show was recently renewed for another season. However, the cast was released from their existing contracts to be renewed at a later date if they were still available.
Soaphub broke the news this week that actor Casey Moss is leaving the show later this month. He has played JJ Deveraux since 2013. The character recently lost another girlfriend (played by Thia Megia.) JJ’s earlier love interest, Paige, was killed off the show. (Fun fact: True O’Brien, who played Page is Casey’s girlfriend in real life.)
Days of Our Lives airs weekdays on NBC. Keep your eyes on TV Shows Ace for more news on the actor’s last airdate.
