Great news for DAYS fans who have been excited about the recent rumors and sitings of Bryan Dattilo on the set of of the NBC soap.  Well today, Soap Opera Digest is confirming exclusively that Bryan is returning to the role of Lucas Horton.

DAYS Co-Executive Producer Greg Meng noted “We are very excited Bryan Dattilo, who has been greatly missed on the show, is back in Salem. The reset of DAYS is about bringing core families back together, rekindling old romances, and sparking new ones.”

Dattilo will first be seen on-air in late February 2012.   We can only believe that when Lucas returns to the canvas it will be smack dab in the middle of his son, Will’s important coming out storyline.  And who will Lucas be linked with romantically this time out? Stay tuned!

Sami belongs with EJ!

All I can say about that is, Not!

Very happy to hear Brian is coming back to DAYS as Lucus. He is a great actor that is needed on the canvas of DAYS for his son.

Sami’s got her hands full. Let’s not go there with Carrie again. How many times can he be rejected by Carrie anyway? They could bring Carly back for him or maybe cast someone as Kimberly Brady’s daughter– maybe someone from AMC or OLTL. Bree Williamson maybe?

LUMI forever!!! I hope Sami and Rafe split when he learns she cheated. And Sami shouldn’t EVER be paired with her rapist EJ. Lucas is Sami’s soulmate and her best choice of partner. Scratch that. There is no choice! Lucas is the ONLY man for Sami!!!

Cady McClain IN As DAYS Jennifer Temporarily Replacing Melissa Reeves

Rumors that have been swirling are confirmed true.  Cady McClain is coming to Salem and Days of our Lives to replace Melissa Reeves temporarily as the new Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  The casting news was confirmed by a Days spokesperson, according to Soap Opera Digest.

Daytime fans recall, Cady is a two-time Daytime Emmy winner and has previously appeared as Dixie on All My Children, Rosanna on As the World Turns and Kelly on The Young and the Restless.  McClain has already begun filming as Jennifer.

Reeves, who commutes from Nashville to Los Angeles to tape episodes of Days of our Lives, decided not to return to set when the NBC soap opera resumed production earlier this month due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic,

In addition, Melissa became a grandmother last month with her daughter Emily’s first child, and now soon will welcome her son Larry’s first child later this month, which is another reason Reeves chose to stay put in Tennessee.

So, what do you think of the Jennifer switcheroo? Excited to see what Cady brings to the role? Comment below.

Marci Miller Opens Up About Her Decision to Return to DAYS and Her Concerns Replacing Kate Mansi

This week will mark the return of Marci Miller in the role of Abigail Deveraux DiMera on Days of our Lives.

The popular actress, who had been nominated for two Daytime Emmys in the Lead Actress category during her initial run on the NBC soap opera, revealed some of the complex emotions she had in determining whether or not to come back to Salem as detailed in this week’s Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now.

Once again, Miller is taking over the role from her predecessor, Kate Mansi.  As DAYS fans know. Mansi won a Daytime Emmy for her work as Outstanding Supporting Actress in 2017 and first played the role from 2011-2016, then Miller took over the role.  Abigail’s last arc was played by Mansi when she returned from 2018- to the first part of 2020.  Miller had stepped away from the role in 2018 as she wanted to concentrate on other projects.

In regards to her comeback, Miller shared with SOD: “You never know how discombobulating it might be.  That was one of the things I had to weigh in coming back, was whether or not it was fair to the fans for me to accept (the offer) because Kate hadn’t been there for a very long stint. For them to do this flip-flop thing was a little bit of a concern of mine.”

Miller ultimately says she felt that it was better to have Abigail on the canvas, than not in all, and in the hands of an actress who was familiar with the role than a new actress to take over the part.

Make sure to check out SOD for more on Marci’s decision to return to the NBC soap opera.

Meanwhile, look for an exciting story ahead for Miller when Abigail gets back in action in Salem.

So, what do you think of Marci’s careful thought-process to coming home to DAYS? Comment below.
