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)

Now, happy to hear Arianne Zucker is back at DAYS? Share your thoughts on how you hope her return plays out in story via the comment section below.

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 »

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… 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!

Carol

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.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?
