One of the most popular and best actresses in Days of our Lives  five decade-plus run, Arianne Zucker (Nicole), is reprising her role of Nicole Walker!

Soap Opera Digest broke the news,that Zucker, who left the series in 2017, is set for a comeback, and will be seen this fall on the NBC sudser.

As viewers saw, Nicole was forced to leave Salem and break-up with Eric (Greg Vaughan), because Brady (Eric Martsolf) had the goods on her for murdering Deimos (Vincent Irizarry).

How will Nicole’s return impact Brady, Eric and what role will Ari’s ex Kyle Lowder being playing as well?  Will he be mixing it up on-screen with Ari?

Zucker’s return will make for intriguing daytime drama, especially under the pen of head writer, Ron Carlivati.

So, excited to hear that Arianne is making a return to Salem? Comment below

Nicole found the real Brady who was somehow switched at birth…thats the role Kyle will be playing…however, current Brady is also the real Brady when dna is performed and Kyles Brady has the same dna results…they are fraternal twins and Kyle’s Brady was stolen at birth..lol…ok, just make him Philip

Yeayyyy!!!! So happy to see Nicole back.
What will the newly self-appointed morally-conscientious good guy Brady do?? What will Eve do?
Does she know that he threatened Nicole?…..that he viciously drove her out of town because he couldn’t handle the fact that she chose Eric over him? How dare she?? How dare any woman choose another guy?!?! Ugh!!
What of Miss Purity-Jen, herself? Oh, me, oh, my……the caca will hit the fan in more ways than one…..this I ‘gotta’ see!! Can’t wait. So exciting!!

ONE: I truly believe that Ron Carlivati can perform miracles. I still think it was a VERY GOOD TIME for Ari Zucker to have left. she ran thru all the men… especially the three muskateers… Eric / Brady / Daniel. no matter how “bonded” we are to her character .. (plus it didn’t help that she didn’t have any woman friends…. dag ! just Jennifer ? she has no ties here.) LEAVE WELL ENOUGH ALONE… with all due respect… I do not want her to be DAYS new leading lady. FOCUS ON THE DONOVAN WOMEN. there were so many bleak… Read more »

LOL, Patrick…..I think you have a point there. Nicole left at a very opportune time……precious time to have given her wisdom in dealing with HER life issues—never mind the men. Will Holly be sorased? ….”.. ran through all the men….” :DOUBLE LOL. Oh, my Patrick…..except for Alice Horton, Mary Williams, and Mona Kane ( as per my Gran—were there more?); what woman, on any soap, hasn’t tangoed with the football team, and beyond? Honestly? I’d rather have Nicole than Eve. For some reason, which I cannot pinpoint, Eve does not strike me soooo sincere. Perhaps, we have not seen moments… Read more »

I don’t know… retread.. even if it’s Eric N Nicole. ???? after ALL the years of hit and miss… it doesn’t seem to me like it’s worth it. SEARCH @DAYS… take the time to find a NEW LEADING LADY for Greg VAughan…. ALL of DAYS fans know their long history… I’m not feeling this… no bells and whistles for her return. it’s always about men and sex… with nothing else… mind you.. if this includes Greg Vaughan.. then sure. outside of giving her a job … which usually doesn’t go any where. @DAYS has done a stupendous job of RETURNS.… Read more »

perhaps watching her be a mother will be a new attribute. a tired dance now and then with Eric ? he’s on a roll… big time… w/ that emmy win. heck.. ME I’ve grown used to Jenny Bear. because every thing about the show is going so swimmingly and on track

I still say… Jade Harlow… sexed out !

Hey, again, Patrick…..yes, give Nicole time to settle herself within.
Eric and she were hot….granted. Perhaps, she and Xander? Other than Theresa, Nicole and Xander did have a bout with sexual tension….remember that? In all the hate-spewing between them, there was something there.
Eric is just lost in a placid sea of perpetual inertia….nothin’ happenin’ with Miss Jennie …….she strikes me as one of those women who circles sex days on a calendar. HaHa….no spontaneity—-fluffy pillows; pristine, ironed, white sheets….rose petals everywhere….

hilarious, Jenny Bear – oy she was never better for that belly laugh whenst she spilled the bottle and caught up. well , you know what I mean… the story never goes full throttle on some characters.. writers write to give character story.. and bam… it’s all over in a whiff… TAKE @GH Carly in Pentonville. argh! was Jason crying when they last spoke. the intimacy was their. oy! Sonny! so far she’s been loud obnoxious and abrasive.. so insulting to the audience… that she’s this spelled out. for a lauded actress till the end of time… oy I will… Read more »

I truly think.. James Scott.. had just had it… with the hit and run… WRITERS of ole’

would he return… @Ron Carlivati helming the DRIVE?

I believe so.. yet his person.. seems to have that spirituality and mind wander of better things to keep his mind

he’s thee consummate… EJ with Peter Blake.. BOTH had ALL thee HOT ME OUT. I TRULY WISH Jason Brooks would return

I am hoping this is not a short-term return. I want Arianne to be returning for the long haul. I know she said last year she didn’t want to be a regular (a.k.a. contract), but maybe she has changed her mind? If not, am hoping another soap picks her up, then!

I’ll be glad to see her!
Interesting observation about this news…the comments on this site are all positive, while the comments on another site are all negative!
Anyway, Nicole will hopefully be over her ‘weepy’ stage and back to her old spunky self, ready to give that a$$ Brady the ‘what for’!

Thank u days for making this happen!.. #ericole needs a epic reunion and both actors deserve a kick ass story. Cant wait. A.Z. and G.V. have the best chemistry and they melt my screen! Watch out Brady…

Celia

I like what you say, Damien…..however, Eric has been domesticated…..Nicole should relax, for the time being…..see where things go…
Will Nicole and Eric be able to recapture their dizzying romance? Can they still “melt my screen”? LOL.
I would love for things to happen your way….oh, what fun it would be watching Miss Jennie develop a temper—does she have one?
I guess she does. Mama bear did ‘claw’ Eve over her son.
Let’s see if she can fight for her man.
Didn’t she give Daniel up to Nicole without a fight? Hmmmm. It’s a vicious circle, my friend.

I don’t care much for DAYS OF OUR LIVES, which over the years has felt like a Nickelodeon kid’s production. I appreciate Ron and his creative brilliance. I also ADORE Arianne Zucker. She is the dark horse of this legendary soap opera. Her presence had been greatly missed. I hope she stays for a long time.

I am so glad that Arianne is returning. I have really missed her.Days of our lives is the only soap I have watched Days for years I also really love the character who play Eric. I hope the writers will give them episodes on the show before they break them up again.

General Hospital Shifts Production Restart Date

On Friday, ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital has now determined to push back their production restart date given the escalating number of cases of the coronavirus as the pandemic has worsened in Los Angles County.

According to Deadline: “GH is now targeting the week of July 20 to resume taping. The situation remains fluid as new infections have been soaring in Los Angeles.”

General Hospital was previously eyeing a return to production this coming Monday on July 13th, before the COVID-19 outbreak saw a spike in numbers.

While GH is pushing itself back another week, The Young and the Restless is at this moment preparing to start taping new episodes beginning on Tuesday, July 14th.

B&B is already back in production and Days of our Lives is now targeting a September 1st restart.

So, glad that GH is holding off a little bit longer to ensure safety first for all involved from cast, and crew? Comment below.

The New Men of B&B Revealed

The Bold and the Beautiful has been the first soap back in production since COVID-19, and now comes exciting casting news that will surely bring some new energy and drama to the CBS Daytime drama series.

First, the series has decided to recast the role of Zende Forrester Dominquez last played by Daytime Emmy-winner Rome Flynn (2015-2017).   Now Delon de Metz will be taking on the role of adopted son of Kristen Forrester and Tony Dominguez.

And in addition, potentially part of the mystery we alluded to earlier in the week as to just who may be the new man in Steffy Forrester’s  (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) life, may have been answered with the casting of Tanner Novlan in the role of Dr. John ‘Finn’ Finnegan.

Novlan is married to former ‘Bold and Beautiful’ star Kayla Ewell (Ex-Caitlin Ramirez) and has been recently seen in the Liberty Mutual commercials where he plays an actor trying to say the lines of dialog required of him but keeps messing it up.   He was also recently seen in 2019 on the CW’s Roswell, New Mexico series.

TV Line broke the casting news.

So, what are your thoughts of a new Zende and a new doctor coming to The Bold and the Beautiful? Comment below.
