The Los Angeles native sent a message to fans that reads, "daytime fans. I have a little surprise for you."
daytime fans. i have a little surprise for you. 😉- Blake Berris (@BlakeBerris) December 12, 2016
Not surprisingly, fans immediately began speculating that Berris' former Salem alter ego could be rising from the dead. The character last appeared back in 2014, when Gabi (Camila Banus) shot him in the chest upon hearing his threats toward Sonny (Freddie Smith).
Prompted by fans to elaborate on his tweet, Berris responded with another mysterious message that reads, "remember I said little."
Since leaving DAYS nearly two years ago, Berris has gone on to make appearances in numerous films and television shows including Bones, Pretty Little Liars, Supergirl, and Riders. It's highly possible his big surprise is that he's been cast on another soap opera, though DAYS fans hope he'll be returning to Salem.
At this time, DAYS has yet to comment on whether or not the show intends to bring Nick back from the dead. We'll keep you updated if and when more information becomes available.
Do you think Berris is coming back to DAYS? Do you hope he'll return to Salem? If not, what surprise do you think the actor has in store? We want to hear from you -- and there are many ways you can share your thoughts.
