Stephen Nichols is reportedly off Days of Our Lives, click here to learn more-->
Days of Our Lives viewers brace yourself! While many have been hopeful that Stephen Nichols (Steve "Patch" Johnson) and the show would've been able to iron out a new deal where his contract is concerned, set side sources have confirmed that the actor is still off the show. Nichols contract expired earlier this year in March and he hasn't been filming since. At the time, the show apparently offered him a deal he wasn't agreeing to. In regards to this, Nichols shared that, "one day per week (or less) doesn't give the fans enough time to live with these characters". He, however, remained open that the show will approach him with a better deal as he continued by saying, "Respectfully, hoping for a remedy to this". The fans are actively trying to get the message to the show that they want Steve as a petition has been created for him to be re-signed. If the show doesn't re-sign him, fans can expect an exit this fall. Should things change regarding his status, Soap Opera News will update you!
