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 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 … 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

Patrick
Patrick

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 ?

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.

Carol

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.

Violet Lemm

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
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.

Constance Towers Returns To GH As Helena Cassadine … But Just How Does She Appear?

Now, any General Hospital fan knows that if there is skullduggery and evil going down, Helena Cassadine (whether dead or alive) is usually somehow involved when it comes to the lives of certain people in Port Charles.

And … some major storyline news from TV Line reveals that on next Monday’s August 19th episode of the ABC soap opera, Constance Towers reprises her role as the evil one herself … Helena!

Apparently, look for Helena to appear in a flashback with none other than Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) and about Drew Cain’s time in Afghanistan.  That scene might hold a key to just what Shiloh wants now that he has implanted Drew’s memories into Franco (Roget Howath), thanks to Dr. Cabot’s work.  But could what is revealed also relate to the story that will see Billy Miller (Drew) exit the canvas later this month? Stay tuned.

Viewers last saw Helena alive in story until November of 2016, but then she was part of Jake’s hallucinations that were a part of the chimera storyline that climaxed at the Nurses’ Ball back in May of 2017.

So what do you think Helena’s presence in a flashback will reveal? And, who is ultimately having that flashback? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Daytime Emmys To Merge Younger Actor & Actress Category Into One As Gender-Inclusive Categories Are On The Rise

The upcoming 47th annual Daytime Emmys are already making some changes to key categories and specifically this one that affects daytime drama performers.  Word from Variety is that NATAS (National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences) is going to announce that they are combining the Younger Actor and Actress categories into one gender-neutral category

Not only will the Younger performer category be gender-inclusive, but network soap performances will be combined with digital drama series performances for the category.  Previously, for this past Daytime Emmys, NATAS had changed the Guest Performer in a Drama Series to be gender-inclusive.

This category was initially created in 1985 when it was called the Outstanding Ingenue and then from there tweaked into Outstanding Juvenile Female and Male, and more recently that morphed into the Younger Actor and Actress categories.

Former GH star Hayley Erin (Ex-Kiki) and former DAYS star, Kyle Pettis (Ex-Theo) will now be the last female and male to win the two separate categories with this new move for 2020.

Fans of film and TV have noticed that on several award shows on MTV: their Movie and TV Awards and their VMA’s, there are several gender-inclusive categories, as well as the Television Critics Association Awards who for instance doles out Outstanding Individual Achievement in Drama in comedy.
