‘Days of Our Lives’ Comings and Goings: Marci Miller Reportedly Leaving ‘Days,’ Abby’s Murder Teased?
Days of Our Lives often has a revolving cast of characters. But, unfortunately, a fan favorite may soon be leaving the canvas. Marci Miller, who plays Abigail Deveraux on Days, is reportedly leaving the show for good. While nothing has officially been confirmed as of yet, some outlets are confirming that her death has been teased in future episodes.
Miller returned to ‘Days of Our Lives’ in September 2021
When Miller returned to Days of Our Lives on Sept. 10, things were really shaky, in the beginning, for the “Chabby” ship. According to SoapHub, Abby’s return to Salem is nothing if not a reluctant one. And even though she’s keen to work on her marital problems with Chad, other issues came up that threw flies in the proverbial ointment.
It was previously speculated that the ‘Chabby’ ship wouldn’t last
There was some speculation that the Days of Our Lives power couple isn’t going to last. It’s normal for long-time soap opera couples to break up, only to get back together again through some stroke of fate. (In this case, that “stroke of fate” is Ron Carlivati’s pen.) But this time, “Chabby” felt…different.
Now, this is all just speculation, of course. Days of Our Lives has a funny way of turning things around in ways we least expect it.
But, it seems, the concern about the “ship” crashing was the correct one. Because, according to new reports, there will be no more “Chabby” because there’s no more Abby.
But now, new reports suggest she’s gone for good
A new report from Celeb Dirty Laundry speculates that Miller is gone from Days of Our Lives for good. The outlet claims that Miller is leaving the show to spend more time with her new baby and that her final episode has already been taped. What’s more, the outlet claims that Miller’s character of Abigail Devereaux DiMera won’t be reprised by Kate Mansi or any other actor, because the character has been killed off the show.
“Neither Kate Mansi nor Marci Miller wants to stick around long-term, so the show would apparently rather write Abigail out than try to recast again,” reports the outlet. “Naturally, a big murder is also good for shock value and a ratings boost. There’s no word yet on when exactly this murder will go down, but multiple insiders confirm that it’s indeed happening. It’s a good idea to be prepared for the tragic exit ahead for Abigail and the dramatic fallout that’ll follow.”
However, the outlet also makes clear that there has been no official word from Days of Our Lives — or Miller herself — about this alleged departure. The outlet only claims that “insiders are reporting” this. The outlet also doesn’t state when Miller is due to be leaving, and when her final episode will air.
