Great news for DAYS fans! According to an item on the new DOOL app, Arianne Zucker (Nicole) is coming back to the NBC soap in 2019 and is currently taping new episodes.

When viewers last saw Nicole on-screen at the end of October of this year, she was engulfed in flames at the warehouse/compound which was taken over by Xander (Paul Telfer) and Kristen (Stacy Haiduk), and was presumed dead.

Just how will Nicole come back?  According to the DOOL app, Zucker will be sharing screen-time in 2019 with Greg Vaughan, Eric Martsolf, Kristian Alfonso and Gilles Marini.

It will be intriguing to see just when Arianne hits the canvas, as currently it looks like Eric (Greg Vaughan) and Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) could be headed for a custody battle over Nicole’s daughter, Holly!

Michael Fairman TV will keep you posted on when more definitive airdates are announced for Arianne’s first episode back, and make sure to download the DOOL app for the latest behind the scenes news and more. (available on Apple and Google play stores)

Thank the soap gods! My xmas prayers have been answered!
Nicole coming back to Eric on Days, and that joke of a exec producer Mal Young sent packing from Y n r!
Happy holidays to all! I csn now rest a lil more easy!

OMG, haven’t we all had enough of Nicole? The SLs with her aren’t very happy ones, and usually just bring misery of one kind or another.

maybe when she comes back she can stop eric from whinning his character lately is a snorefest

I knew Nicole’s story wasn’t over and I am so glad to hear this!!!

Love Arianne and Nicole….but the Nicole pre-sappy, pre-depressing, always moping, always the victim that entered when her obsession with Daniel started. I want take no prisoners, reactive, impulsive, flawed Nicole back. But is this short-term or is this contract? Anyone know?

My thought too. Is this contract, or just a couple of episodes followed by a quick escape from Salem?

I just hope she doesn’t appear as a ghost! We need Ari back and no one has to know why she really left bc of Deimos. Keep her alive but don’t take Eric!! Merry Christmas!

I knew that Nicole wasnt dead. Every one hope you have a very Merry Christmas it is also my birthday.

How long will she stay? It was very short last time.

I … don’t know… “right now” Greg Vaughan AND Linsey Godfrey ARE burning up the screen with the most chemistry I’ve ever seen… FOR ERIC. Yes .. he and Nicole have legions and millions of fans…

Pair Nicole up with Gilles Marini. I sure hope … @DAYS is splitting up Hope and Rafe. SNORE .

I would much prefer Greg Vaughan be given that much more material to further flesh out his ACTING CHOP.. and right now.. that’s with Maggie daughter Sarah .

YES YES YES – I am still in love with the best addition ! Linsey Godfrey is SO GOOD

I just can’t see @DAYS doing retread so soon… since she hasn’t been gone that long.. the stench of Dr. Daniel is still alive

how long is she back for ? just enough time to escape back out of town with Holly ?

Yes, very happy. A good actress–deserves a juicy story line.


He sure turned into a real jerk, didn’t he?

What a sneaky thing that Days did made us all think on Fridays show it was Nicole in that black outfit the same one Vivian wore,i knew it wasnt Vivian but I had no idea it was Eve,I must say I am glad Eve is back.With Days bringing back all of these so called dead people it wouldnt surprise me if we do see Vivian again,good I like her someone needs to put Kate in her place.I know chance of subject here.I think that Nicole will show up sooner then later.Just when Eric and Sara become really close maybe even in love that is when see Nicole.One more thing I see JJ and that new girl possibly falling in love

Think you are right.I thought it might have been Vivian also, but her derriere never looked that good! Someone has her on ice though. Remember after she was shot, and she was being “revived”, she said you!! Steffen is going to need his mommy. I do not like the gal that plays Sara, and didn’t like her any better on B&B. She’s been in Salem about 10 min.and is up in everyone’s face, including her mother, about Eric and his wanting Holly. Next she’ll be telling Kayla, how to run the hospital.

I know what you mean about Sara I think she thinks she is an angel far from it. Hey speaking of the woman who played Sara she was in a Lifetime movie just the other day that is the second one I have seen her in on Lifetime I wonder if NBC and Lifetimes are connected in anyway because I see a lot of Days stars in there movies.
I for one wishes Vivian would come back for crying out loud she just shows up and they have to get rid of her. She would add some more spark to the show.and besides that we all know she can be funny at times to.I have to agree once I saw who was in that coat I knew right away it wasnt Vivian,but to lead us all on making us think that it was Nicole what a lousy trick however Days has been known to trick there audience.How do you feel about Jack being back?While I like the actor who plays him I am not all to sure yet if I like Jack being back.I suppose it could be interesting to see what Days has planned. I wonder if this will make Abby go over the edge.Believng her father was dead and he was not.That would certainly make Gabby happy.
Oh about Sara she makes me sick because she acts like she is perfect never did anything wrong.

LiKe I said, I’ve never cared for this actress. Did you see her on B&B? I am not sure how I feel about Jack yet. That is if he’s really Jack and not an imposter that Eve found somewhere.I mean, where could she have found him anyway? Abby may be able to tell, if he’s the real deal.
How about that Gabi, getting off scott free? I just knew that would happen. Stupid Chad, also, thinking Abby would just forgive and forget everything he’s done to her, all in the name of love, according to him. What a jerk!

I dont watch B&B I dont care for it.WEll if he isnt really Jack I am sure Abby will find out for sure.
What a joke Gabby getting getting away with everything,I am sure being Rafe’s sister helps.Being a relative of a cop and all.Chad is not very bright that is for sure.

Jason George Returning to ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Main Cast for Upcoming Season

Soap opera alum Jason George (ex-Michael Bourne, Sunset Beach) is rejoining Grey’s Anatomy as a series regular for its upcoming 21st season.

According to Deadline, Jason will reprise his signature role of Ben Warren. Previously, the actor played Ben since season 6 of the ABC medical drama. Later, George became a series regular for seasons 12-14 before departing to join the ‘Grey’s’ spinoff, Station 19.

With Station 19 now canceled, it paved the way for George to bring Ben back to Seattle Grey’s Sloan. Over the past seven years, Jason was a mainstay on the firefighter drama and would make appearances and crossover to “Grey’s’.  Both series are produced by Shondaland and ABC signature.

In story, the seventh season of Station 19 had Ben tapping leaning into his medical skills while questioning his future as a firefighter in light of his shoulder injury. Then, in the Station 19 series finale, Ben told Captain Herrera that he was going back to finish his surgical residency. The story all fits together because when Ben was a fifth year resident at Grey Sloan, he found a way to pursue his other dream as a firefighter without jeopardizing his chances to return to the hospital and medicine one day.

George was featured on NBC’s Sunset Beach from 1997-1999 as lifeguard Michael Bourne and his love interest, Vanessa was played by Sherri Saum (ex-Keri, One Life to Live) who is also the wife of the late Kamar de los Reyes (ex-Antonio, One Life to Live)

In a post on X, following the story of his rejoining Grey’s Anatomy, George posted a video with the music from “Welcome Back Kotter” and the words “Well … it WAS kind of hush-hush. But now it’s official. Where my scrubs at?”

So, glad to hear Jason George is returning as a series regular to Grey’s Anatomy? Comment below.

General Hospital EP, Frank Valentini, Reveals Former Cast Member is Coming Back and Teases, “I Think That The Audience Will Go Crazy for HIM”

There are some big changes afoot at General Hospital over the summer, and one of the biggest ones was revealed by the series Daytime Emmy- winning executive producer, Frank Valentini.

After winning the series fourth consecutive Outstanding Daytime Drama Series award, and 17th overall in the history of the 61-year-old soap opera, Valentini spoke with ABC 7’s On the Red Carpet at the 51st annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

When asked what to expect coming up, the exec dropped a bombshell. Valentini shared, “A former cast member is coming back. And I think that the audience will go crazy for HIM.”

Now. speculation is running rampant of just who could it be! Is it possible that Jonathan Jackson will reprise his five-time Daytime Emmy-winning role of Lucky Spencer? Still others have thought it could actually be Greg Vaughan (because he may have wrapped his run on Days of our Lives months ago, along with Arianne Zucker, who departs later this summer on-screen) reprising the role of Lucky.

Could Valentini being referring to the return of John J. York as Mac Scorpio; who had to exit the series to undergo treatment for myelodysplastic syndromes and multiple smoldering myeloma (two blood and bone marrow disorders), but who recently returned a month ago to the set? Or, might it be the return of two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Bryan Craig, as a now very much alive Morgan Corinthos? Fans are also wondering if GH somehow lured Nicholas Chavez back to the role of Spencer Cassadine; a role he vacated at the beginning of this year to film his leading role in Ryan Murphy’s Monsters anthology series as convicted murderer Lyle Mendenez.

In addition, Steve Burton (Jason), Kate Mansi (Kristina), and GH head writer, Elizabeth Korte, also shared some storyline intel with On the Red Carpet of what lies ahead through the summer months for Jason, Kristina, and all of the Davis women.

Watch the entire video package below.

Now weigh-in, which male actor is returning to General Hospital? Who do you hope it will be? Share your theories via the comment section.
