She has finished taping and her last airdate will be in May.

We pretty much knew she was leaving. I hope she comes back like Camila did.

Abigail (Kate specifically) is my favorite, so the show won't be the same without her to me.

Good luck to Kate with whatever she is pursing though.

The article says she'll be on air "at least through May" so I'm expecting her to air into June a bit.

"Although Mansi has finished taping, look for her to remain on air through at least May."

At least? What does that mean?

I like Chabby and I'm disappointed by this news, so I can't imagine how hardcore Chabby shippers must feel. Such a shame, KM and BF had killer chemistry.

Thank goodness the rumor was true. Hopefully she's very successful in this new chapter in her life ( both because I have nothing against her and don't want her to return to Days) and they don't recast.

At least? What does that mean?
It probably just means an estimate? What else would it mean?

I don't know how I think they should handle this. Recasts are so tricky and especially when the big part of the story is the romantic connection. I'd probably prefer to see them wait to recast.

I'm not a Chabby or Abby fan, but I don't understand why she's leaving when her popularity is at it's peak.

It would've been one thing if it was a year ago when she was barely on / had terrible story. But now? The show basically centered their 50th anniversary around her. That's bit of a slap in the face.

It does seem like a really bad decision.

She almost left a year ago. I think she wants to try other things. That's my guess.

I wouldn't say the 50th was centered around her. It was more Bo and Hope. Her story really peaked in December.

This sucks but had a feeling. I hope she is able to return in the future if Abby is not recast right away.

Disappointing news. Long gone are the days of Alison Sweeney and Bryan Dattilo. Young actors that join soaps and remain on the soaps for years. That's okay though. I wish Mansi nothing but the best!

It does make me wonder what they're going to do with the character though. Especially considering Mansi's exit is around the time of Ashford's brief 5 episode return. Could Jack be escorting Abigail into the white light?

Not surprising. But I'll enjoy Chabby as long as I can. :)

Matt Ashford was announced to return for five episodes,
to report for work during the week of Nov 30th.
He tweeted out a pic of him with Missy Reeves on set on Dec 11th.

From Jason47's tape to airdate estimated schedule:
Taping week of 11/30/15-12/4/15: (airing 5/17/16-5/26/16)
Taping week of 12/7/15-12/11/15: (airing 5/27/16-6/9/16)

"Although Mansi has finished taping, look for her to remain on air through at least May."

I speculate that there's a connection there.

She's 27 years old. She wants to move on and in hollywood women over thirty and no name have less opportunites than women under 30 with no name. I like Chabby, but I get why Kate would want to make a go of it while she still can.

Man, I am disappointed. Every actor I enjoy ends up leaving. What a bummer, especially since I've really come to love Chad/Abby.

Also, I wonder if that casting call was indeed for Abby, then? The one about the beautiful girl with the painful past? Would they recast her so soon, though?
