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.

People who mention these dates elsewhere, please be sure to also say these are just a "best guess." These are not firm dates, they are just listed to give an appoximate guess as to how long an actor may be contracted with the show. If the actor continues to work past the date listed, a year is then simply added to their end date.
