CONTRACT STATUS CHART..."BEST GUESS"...NOT VERIFIED

The following is a "best guess" contract status report of all actors on contract. Note, these are the dates that the actors may be contracted to the show (these dates are not verified). Also, "Days" can decide to release actors after every 13-week cycle, so these dates are not firm. Information is based on the date when the actors signed contracts (most run for 2-4 years originally for newbies, less for returning vets) and from soap magazines which sometimes list renewals. Note: all information may not be totally accurate due to lengths/renewals which go unreported.
