Laying all the rumors to rest, can confirm that Arianne Zucker will be returning to Days of Our Lives as the devious Nicole Walker in March!

Leaving a list of crimes in her wake, Nicole moved away from Salem when she failed to lure Austin Reed into her web. Prior to her exit, Nicole plotted with Jan Spears to kill her then husband Victor Kiriakis and then hooked up with Stan/Sami and Tony DiMera to sabotage Chloe’s facial reconstruction surgery. This of course led to the end of her relationship with Brady, whom she was trying to keep Chloe hidden from.

So what’s in store for Nicole upon her return? Will she pick up the flirtation she started with Roman before she left? Does she have anything to do with Brady’s recent disappearance, or will she go after another male Salemite? Stay tuned to find out!
