After word got out on Wednesday morning that Marci Miller has decided to depart Days of our Lives, multiple outlets are reporting from sources that none other than Kate Mansi is on her way back to the Daytime Emmy Award-winning drama series to reprise the role of Abigail!

Mansi, decided to leave DAYS back at the end of 2016, which prompted an exhaustive and lengthy search for her replacement … enter Marci Miller.

But now that Miller is on her way to pursue other acting endeavors, Mansi, who left the series for the same reason, is now coming home to Salem.

However, Soap Opera Digest is reporting that Mansi’s return as Abigail is for a short-term run starting this summer.  Remember, DAYS also tapes six months in advance.

As for Kate, she won an Outstanding Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy in 2017 at the 44th Annual Daytime Emmys for her performance.

So, excited that Kate Mansi is reportedly coming back to DAYS? Comment below.

Well at least this means the ridiculous DID story will be over, because there’s not a snowball’s chance in my back yard that Kate Mansi could pull that off.

Marci Miller was much better in the role. It’s too bad that most of her airtime on the show was wasted on ReRon’s cookie cutter plotpoint dragonshit writing.

What does ReRon mean? I actually liked this story, because of how phenomenal Marci Miller played it out! It’s funny because everyone said Marci had big shoes to fill, and now I’m saying Kate Mansi has even bigger shoes to refill! Why not just write Abby out now and be done with it! I’m guessing Chad will be with Gabi which makes me sick been there done that! Or he will be with Mimi who is returning soon! Or he will leave as well! Anything but Chad and Gabi! I want Gabi and JJ together! Abby has become my favorite though under Marci Miller so not sure I’m going to continue liking the show as much!

Ok…i guess Ab will be sent away for treatments like Laura until a suitable replacement is found after Mansi’s short stint

or gone for some time like Laura was…

I can hope… that Kate Mansi … MUST follow Marci Miller take.. that SHE be her own woman… and leave the Horton beacon of righteous at the front door. yeah.. when she must feature scenes with Jenny Bear.

Kate herself is an awarded heroine. BACK BONE your chutzpah and the rest will follow

this is huge stuff… the DiMera Mystique is still driving

It sounds like Miller not renewing her contract came as a surprise and since so much of the story is plotted in advance they just need Mansi back temporarily to wrap the story of Abby– after that I predict the character will be written off– maybe recast much later in the future—at least I hope so because Abigail is a legacy character and I would hate for the show to lose her.

There is far too much story line for the character simply because of the DID situation and the actions of each alter, for them to write her off for long. What I can see, with Vivs return from the dead coming soon is Abby or should I say Gabby pregnant by Stephen or Chad, no one knows, and Viv kidnapping her while they recast the actress. Returns with baby Chephen?

oh, Lordy Lord….I am beside myself with euphoria; I don’t know what to do with it. Welcome home, Abby!!…oh, WOW, WOW, WOW!!…I am speechless.

I know. Im so excited to have Kate back. She will always be Abigail to me. Marci was excellent in the role but she simply isn’t Abby.

I’d like to see Kate Mansi remain in the Abby role for a long time.
