Days of Our Lives (DOOL) fans are still shocked over this week’s turn of events. Looks like Arianne Zucker (Nicole Walker-DiMera) isn’t only out on the soap, but she’s launched a wrongful dismissal legal suit against Corday Productions, Executive Producer, Ken Corday, and former Executive Producer, Albert Alarr.
Unfortunately, Arianne’s days are numbered on the show, but does this mean Nicole’s are, too?
Days Spoilers: Nicole Walker Is A Fan Favorite
DOOL spoilers reveal that Arianne has been playing Nicole Walker since 1998. Other than a couple of years between 2006 and 2008, the actress has been with the show consistently and has become one of the top stars in the daytime drama.
In fact, many believe her performances in 2023, after seemingly losing her newborn baby and dealing with the overdose of her daughter Holly Jonas (Ashley Puzemis) should get her (at the very least) a Daytime Emmy nomination, if not the statue itself.
Nicole Walker hasn’t only been a staple character on the show, but she’s taken center stage this past year with her ‘who’s your daddy” storyline.
As Nicole was allegedly fired in late January, this means fans will get to see the rest of the storyline played out, but by around June/July, she’ll likely be gone. What does this mean for the Ericole reunion some fans were looking for?
DOOL Spoilers: Arianne Zucker Is The Only Actress To Play Nicole Walker
Fans need to gear up for a Salem without Nicole Walker-DiMera. Not to say that recasting Nicole is completely out of the question; however, some characters cannot be recast, and Nicole is likely one of them.
With only about six months or so left of Nicole’s storyline, it’ll be interesting to see how the character exits, especially with the real-life story that is playing in the background.
Still, while it’s sad to see what reportedly happened on the set of DOOL and Arianne’s claims, the aftermath of this all also means no proper Ericole reunion, something some fans have been waiting for, for what seems like, forever.
