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.

Emmy Winner and Noted Soap Opera Head Writer; Hogan Sheffer Passes Away At 61

Over the last several hours, reports have broke that one of daytime’s most notable scribes has died.  Hogan Sheffer, who was head writer at As the World Turns, Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless has passed away at the age of 61.

Soap Hub, first reported the news via multiple sources, however, many writers who worked with Hogan during his tenure on the soaps have taken to social media to share their condolences and their grief and remembrances.

Sheffer’s appearance on the soap scene was unexpected, especially in a genre where it is often rare for new blood to take the reins at the head writer position.  Proctor & Gamble had decided to bring in Hogan after his work as the Director of Screenplay Development for DreamWorks, not because of his writing credits for a previous network soap.  He was given trial deal as a breakdown writer for the CBS soap and 10-weeks in became the beloved town of Oakdale’s new head writer.

Hogan and his then writing team were able to turn the classic, As the World Turns around.  The show went up in the ratings and during his time with the series ‘World Turn’s’ won two Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, and he and the writing team picked up four Emmy victories all through 2000-2004.

Next, Sheffer landed in Salem as head writer of Days of our Lives along with Meg Kelly from 2006 through to the beginning of 2008.   He would later join The Young and the Restless and team up with then head writers: Maria Arena Bell and Scott Hamner, and eventually stay with the show till 2012.  During Sheffer’s time in Genoa City, Y&R also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Writing in 2011.

On Sunday, former WWE and daytime writer Tom Casiello, who was extremely close with Sheffer…  and who shared how Hogan gave him his start at writing in daytime, took to his Facebook page to pay tribute to a man who had such an impact on his life and many others.  It is worth the read here. 

Y&R writer, Sara Bibel tweeted: “Hogan Sheffer was a gamechanger for ATWT and daytime. Everyone I know who worked with him adored him. RIP”

And, iconic ATWT star, Martha Byrne (Ex-Lily) tweeted on Sheffer’s passing: “To say he was one of a kind would be a tremendous understatement. Our years at ATWT with Hogan at the helm were a rebirth for our beautiful show. Loved his writers, actors,crew. Blessed to have him on the first floor in Brooklyn ready to listen. Talented. Funny. Generous. RIP”

Colleen Zenk (Ex-Barbara, ATWT) also took to Twitter upon learning of the passing of Sheffer sharing: “I loved him, loved him, loved him… he was so good to me. Thank you for everything, Hogan. You were so loved. Especially, by me… Rest in peace…”
