Kate Mansi returns?
DOOL fans need not fear, though. Abby DiMera isn’t leaving Salem. In fact, the recast that everyone has been calling for appears to be happening. According to Daytime Confidential, Kate Mansi is making her way back to Salem to take over the role as Abby once again. Fans were really sad and upset when Kate left Days in 2016 to work on some made-for-TV movies.
That was after Abby suffered a mental breakdown and was sent off to a mental institution. Now it looks like Kate and her TV hubby Billy Flynn, who plays Chad DiMera, will soon be reunited on screen. Kate will also be reunited with her Salem family, her mother Jennifer Horton (Melissa Reeves) and brother JJ Deveraux (Casey Moss).
Marci Miller even shared a pic of her from the set of a new film (see below) – looks like she’s already gone from NBC and pursuing new projects!
Other returns (some not so happy)!
Days of Our Lives spoilers promise there may also be some not so pleasant reunions as the ex who tormented and nearly killed Abby – Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) – is also returning to Salem. It would seem that Kate’s return could be timed perfectly to make stories very interesting indeed. Kate will also get to interact with Will (Chandler Massey) as he has returned from the dead. Other returns include Farah Fath who confirmed she’s back for a “handful of episodes” on Days!
Also, Xander is back! It’s a villainous reunion as all the bad guys seem to be returning to Salem! Bad girls are coming back, too, since Kristen DiMera is heading back recast with Stacey Haiduk in the role. There are also persistent rumors of Thaao Penghlis’ return as well.
Fans wanted Mansi back
DOOL fans have been clamoring for Kate Mansi’s return for the last two years and it looks like we will finally get our wish. Kate made Abby an amazingly strong character and Marci has continued that trend. There was also amazing chemistry between her and Billy on screen. These two absolutely lit things up when they worked together and we look forward to seeing what she’ll be up to when she returns to Salem.
This should be a very exciting time for Days fans. We wish Marci the best of luck in her new venture. We are also excited to welcome Kate Mansi back home to Salem and can’t wait to see her once again playing Abby. What do you think? Are you happy that Kate is coming back to Days? Will you miss Marci Miller?
