Days of our Lives fan favourite Bryan Dattilo is apparently on his way out as Lucas Horton. The actor tweeted to fans on Wednesday (June 13) “25 years. 2 months. 12 days. And 4 hours. Good run. Thanks to my Days family and fans. Enjoy Lucas while you can.” While the actor is on recurring status, TV Insider is reporting that the character may merely just be given a rest and that Dattilo’s exit won’t be final.

Dattilo joined the soap in 1993 and was briefly written out in 2001, with Lucas emerging from his coma the following year. The actor was then written out between 2010 and 2012. Here’s hoping the actor is already back filming when his character exits Salem six months from now!
This week on Days of our Lives: Ciara (Victoria Konefal) cautiously opens up to Ben (Robert Scott Wilson) on Monday (June 18). Hope (Kristian Alfonso) makes an unsettling discovery. J.J. (Casey Moss) rushes Lani (Sal Stowers) to the hospital. Will (Chandler Massey) has a flash of memory.
The Hortons rally around Eli (Lamon Archey) and Lani as she undergoes an emergency c-section on Tuesday (June 19). Lani has a fantasy of her perfect life with her baby and J.J. Abe (James Reynolds) has a warm moment with Eli. Eric (Greg Vaughan), Jennifer (Melissa Reeves), Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) and Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) have a celebratory dinner.
Distraught about Ciara, Hope lashes out at Tripp (Lucas Adams) on Wednesday (June 20). Ben confides to Ciara a disturbing moment from his childhood. Will keeps a secret from Paul (Christopher Sean). Chad (Billy Flynn) has an expected suggestion for Sonny (Freddie Smith).
Chad pitches himself to Victor (John Aniston) as the best candidate to run Titan on Thursday (June 21). Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) is caught while snooping around Kate’s (Lauren Koslow) room. Steve (Stephen Nichols) blasts Stefan (Tyler Christopher) for what he did to Abigail (Marci Miller). Hope is relieved when Ciara calls her, but is upset by her daughter’s news.
On Friday (June 22), Kate makes a huge confession to Chad. Gabi (Camila Banus) is released from prison but her reunion with Ari isn’t quite what she expected. Brady (Eric Martsolf) and Eve (Kassie DePaiva) are thrown a curve ball by Stefan. Lani receives terrible news.
Here’s what’s coming up in Salem during the week of June 25:
- Brady and Eve blast Theresa (Jen Lilley) for suing for full custody of Tate, and J.J. comes to her defence.
- Abigail fears she’s pregnant but keeps it from Chad.
- Ben and Ciara grow closer.
- A desperate Leo (Greg Rikaart) seeks out Sonny.
- Paul (Christopher Sean) tells Will that he loves him for the first time.
