Arianne Zucker has played the role of Nicole Walker on Days Of Our Lives since 1998. In 2006, she exited the soap opera but returned two years later. Most fans love her character. Even though she makes bad decisions and is a bit impulsive, she has a good heart. Right now, viewers are upset over the storyline of Chloe Lane (Nadia Bjorlin) getting custody of Nicole’s baby, Holly. Fans are going to be even more emotional after finding out that Zucker is leaving DOOL.

The news was first reported by Soap Opera Digest. The full story will not be available until the new issue of the magazine is released on Friday. However, there was a short statement from Arianne on the website.

“Two years ago, I was contemplating making the shift. I know there are a thousand girls who would take my job in a second, for me, it is my time to go.”

Zucker’s contract with Days Of Our Lives ends in April 2017. Since the soap opera films several months in advance, fans will continue to see Nicole until this fall. Arianne has decided not to renew her contract and Salem is going to say goodbye to Nicole Walker. Although some characters are recast, like Jade Michaels (formerly Paige Searcy and currently Gabrielle Haugh), others are not. One example is Jen Lilley, who played Theresa Donovan on DOOL. Her exit storyline was a bit crazy but also brought out how much the character had changed from her bad girl ways. She left to protect Brady and their son, Tate. Hopefully, the writers will give Nicole an exit storyline that will permanently reunite her with her biological daughter.
