Days of Our Lives spoilers hint that another fan favorite may be leaving Salem – or at least taking a hiatus. Marci Miller, who plays the role of Abigail DiMera has booked a role in the pilot of a new TV show. The show is called Gods Of Medicine and centers around doctors worldwide, that are the best in their field, called on for the most difficult surgeries. It sounds like a “doctors without borders” sort of deal.
Marci Miller Lands Prime Time Show!
If you check Marci Miller’s IMDB page, you’ll see it front and center as her top credit – this confirms the delightful Ms. Miller landed the prime time gig. The show is still in the pilot phase, but she’s a top listed star for the series and close to 10 episodes are in the can so far with more to come. If the series is picked up, Miller’s time might be tight!
DOOL fans will wonder whether Abby could either be recast or be written out of the NBC soap. However, Marci will not be the only actor on Days to pull double duty. Other stars such as Greg Vaughn working outside projects and on prime time series while still getting his groove on at Days of Our Lives.

Bad Time for Marci to Leave…
As we know from DOOL spoilers, Marci’s character Abby is involved in an epic storyline that has her front and center dealing with her mental illness. Abigail, Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn), and Stefan DiMera (Tyler Christopher) are involved in a crazy love triangle with Abby’s alter Gabigail (also Marci Miller).
Gabigal loves Stefan but Abby hates him. Chad loves Abby and hates Stefan. Abby is been trying to fight her way out of a mental health spiral to save herself and get back to her family. But she also has to deal with the fact that she murdered her brother in law Andre DiMera (Thaao Penghlis). It’s not confirmed that Marci is leaving the show and hopefully she sticks around!

Days of Our Lives Fans Must Wait to Find Out
What we do know is that Marci Miller is working on the prime time pilot so she may have to take some time off. Since DOOL shoots six months ahead, it could be that this Gabigail alter storyline has wound down from shooting and she’s on the back burner and free to take on outside projects. We won’t know for months, though!
Days of Our Lives spoilers wonder whether poor sick Abby ends up in an institution to get help for her illness or goes to jail for murdering Andre (which doesn’t seem likely) given her fragile mental state. Either way, it would be easy to write Marci Miller out for a time so she can pursue the outside project.
Will Stefan stab his mom in the back if he gets to keep Abby?
DOOL fans know Abby is a central character so she wouldn’t likely be killed off. However, we may be in store for another recast even though Marci still has another year on her Days contract. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens with Abby. Right now all we know is that Marci is going to take a short break to shoot her new series.
