Arianne Zucker Returns To Days of our Lives

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

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)

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.

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 … 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… Read more »

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… Read more »

Carol,
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.

Irene Cara, Best-Known For Smash Hits ‘Fame’ and ‘Flashdance… What A Feeling’, Dead at 63

Oscar and Grammy winner, Irene Cara has passed away.  The singer/songwriter/actress, known for her memorable vocal performances to the theme of the hit movie, Fame, and singing the title track to another 80’s blockbuster, Flashdance, apparently died in her Florida home yesterday. The cause of death is not yet known.

According to her publicist, Judith Moore on Twitter, the rep shared: “This is the absolute worst part of being a publicist. I can’t believe I’ve had to write this, let alone release the news.  It is with profound sadness that on behalf of her family I announce the passing of Irene Cara. The Academy Award-winning actress, singer, songwriter and producer passed away in her Florida home.  Irene’s family has requested privacy as they process their grief. She was a beautifully gifted soul whose legacy will live forever through her music and films.”

A little known fact is that Irene’s first acting gig was on the daytime drama, Love of Life from 1970-1971 in the role of Daisy Allen.   She later appeared in TV roles on: What’s Happening, Kojak, Roots: The Next Generations, and in the film, Sparkle and many more.

Later, Cara first rose to prominence when she was cast in the 1980’s musical film Fame, where she sang the title track and starred in as Coco Hernandez.  Her vocal performance in Fame earned her two Grammy Award nominations for Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Performance Female in 1981.

Two years later, Cara not only picked up two Grammy Awards for her performance, but also an Oscar for  co-writing, “Flashdance… What a Feeling” from another 80’s pop culture smash, Flashdance.  At the Grammys in 1984, Irene won for Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female, and Best Album of an Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or a Television Special.  She took home the Oscar for Best Original Song at the Academy Awards in 1983.

Cara’s rep added, that at the time of Irene’s death they were working on new projects: “Working on amazing projects that would have made her  and her fans incredibly happy. Her manager and I will finish them. She’d want that.”

Amazon Freevee To Bring Back Iconic Australian Soap ‘Neighbours’ with All-New Episodes

In an absolutely stunning twist, the beloved Australian soap opera Neighbours which was canceled after 37 years and aired its final episode in late July after nearly 9,000 episodes, is coming back!

Amazon Freevee and the show’s producer, Fremantle have revealed that they are set to revitalize the soap opera and it will premiere exclusively, and for free, on the streamer in the UK and U.S.

In addition, this will include streaming rights to thousands of episodes from the previous seasons, which will be available to view prior to the launch of the new season.  Neighbours will also be available via Prime Video; in Australia, New Zealand and Canada.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, word is that new episodes will begin shooting in Australia next year.  Cast already signed-on include: Stefan Dennis, Alan Fletcher, Ryan Moloney and Jackie Woodburne who return to reprise their leading roles.

In a way, this news is a bit reminiscent of Prospect Park’s online save of All My Children and One Life to Live, when the company originally had hoped to move the soaps immediately and seamlessly following their network TV broadcast ending, to their new online home, only to run into pitfalls to eventually launch a year later.

Back in March, Neighbours ran into funding issues, when its key UK broadcast partner, Channel 5 pulled out and their attempts at finding alternative funding never panned out.

In a statement, Lauren Anderson, head of AVOD original content and programming at Amazon Studios, expressed: “Neighbours has captivated its audience for nearly 40 years, building a dedicated and loyal following for the lives and stories of the characters on Ramsay Street. With the power of streaming, we’re able to offer a catalog of thousands of Neighbours episodes for new audiences to discover this legendary series and current fans to relive their favorite moments. We look forward to immersing the audience in new Ramsay Street experiences when we relaunch the show next year for Amazon Freevee and Prime Video customers.”

Jennifer Mullin, global CEO, Fremantle added: “Neighbours is a unique series with a powerful connection with its fans across the world. We cherish the show and all those who have been part of its incredible story over many decades, so we are thrilled that we have found a new home with Amazon Freevee. Thanks to the innovative Amazon Freevee platform, many classic episodes will be available to fans, and Neighbours will go back into full production in Australia early next year, providing our fans with new episodes. This partnership with Amazon Freevee marks an exciting new chapter, and we look forward to collaborating with them, along with our long-term and valued partner in Australia, Network 10.”

Previously, Neighbours ended its 37-year run with a memorable final episode where many of its most well-known stars returned to make an appearance including:  Margot Robbie, Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan and Guy Pearce.  The episode scored the soaps highest ratings since 2019.

You can watch a teaser for Neighbours in their upcoming new home below, and a social media teaser from the series itself.

Throughout his daytime career, Clary always sang in his roles and is most remembered as Doug Williams (Bill Hayes) best friend, Robert LeClair.  The two would always perform at “Doug’s Place” in story.  Clary played the role from 1972–1973, 1975–1983, and again from 1986–1987.

During a break from DAYS, Robert went over to Y&R and created the role of Pierre Roulland when the CBS daytime drama first premiered from 1973-1974, and once again sang and acted on the show.  Later in his career, Clary appeared on The Bold and the Beautiful in the role of Pierre Jourdan from 1990-1992.

B&B also honored Robert by posting: The Bell Family & @BandB_CBS re sad to learn of the passing of #RobertClary, who portrayed Pierre Jourdan on @BandB_CBS from 1990-1992. Robert was a talented actor, a kind and courageous man, and a friend to all who knew him.”

Four decades into his career, Robert, who was Jewish, came forward with the fact that was incarcerated for 31 months in an Auschwitz concentrate camp, and tattooed with the identification “A-5714” on his left forearm. He was the only one of his captured family to make it out alive.

Clary was married for 32 years to the late Natalie Cantor, the second daughter of Eddie Cantor. She passed away in 1997.
