Of course, it didn’t take very long for ‘Days of Our Lives’ head writer Ron Carlivati to respond to Greg’s shock announcement. He said, “Wishing all the best to Emmy-winning Greg Vaughan as he begins his next chapter. Please come back and see us sometime soon, Greg! #days.”
Many ‘Days of Our Lives’ fans have commented on the situation on social media with, “I think Ron is doing a great job but I am concerned with all of these sudden departures. It makes you wonder if anything might be going on behind the scenes,” along with, “This is interesting. I don’t think I’ve seen Ron acknowledge any of the other announced departures. He certainly didn’t say anything when Kristian Alfonso said she would be leaving.”
Now whether or not Eric does return after a several month hiatus – as many DOOL stars often do – remains to be seen. ‘Days of Our Lives’ airs weekdays on the NBC network. Check your local listing for times.
