Big news from the DOOL app that went down on Sunday during the Daytime Emmy Awards.  Fan favorites Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi are coming back to Days of our Lives to reprise their roles of Chad DiMera and Abigail Deveraux DiMera.

When viewers last saw Chad and Abby, they tied the knot and headed off to Europe with their children in tow.  Now, we will have to wait and see just what happens when they return to Salem!

Look for Flynn and Mansi’s return to happen this fall on-screen.

As many know, Mansi previously won a Daytime Emmy for her work as Abby, and Flynn has been a nominee.

I am shocked, honestly. I didn’t expect them to return so soon, especially with Kate Mansi in the role. I’m wondering, however, is this a long-term return or a short-term return for holiday-centric episodes? Admittedly, I would’ve preferred for Marci Miller to return, but it’ll be nice to have two familiar faces back in these roles, especially since Billy Flynn admitted he’d accept a recast if that were the route TPTB chose to take for the character of Chad.

Days is like a prime time show with characters making guest appearances…

Temporary or long term?

More than likely this is a short visit. I hate when they make headlines like these making it sound as if they are coming back, then its like for 2 episode. Bye.

Yeah, ReRon pulled that dragonshit all the time when he was ruining GH. And we’re already seeing this on Days i.e. the recent 2 day appearance of Valerie Grant. If all she was going to do was break up with Abe, that didn’t need to be shown on screen.

I would guess we will see Chad & Abby show up for the Hellidays and then disappear again shortly thereafter.

Maybe because of their budget, DOOL can’t afford to have Kate Mansi and Billy Flynn come back full-time and maybe they’re even fine with short term returns and not be tied down to a contract.So maybe the show is just happy to get them back when they can

No offense to Kate but I would have liked Marci Miller come back as Abby. Kate has been in a lot of Lifetime movies ,hey maybe they should chance the name to Days Of our Lifetime.

I’m happy about this news.Now as for why the characters of Chad and Abigail might be returning, well if and when Jack remembers it makes sense that his daughter Abigail should be there for it and maybe Chad returns to support Abigail.
