Over the years, Sonny Kiriakis has become an integral part of Days of Our Lives. Fans love the character immensely, and his pairing with Will Horton has won him a lot of popularity and success. Actor Zach Tinker is a supremely talented actor and breathes life to his character as Sonny. So much so, that Sonny and Zach have become synonyms for many Days of Our Lives fans. However, the latest news is that the talented star has scored a rather meaty role on a CBS primetime show! Does that mean Zach is leaving Days of Our Lives?
Zach recently hopped out of Salem to relive his “other” life as Fenmore on The Young and The Restless. Although, that was only a fleeting visit and Zach swiftly returned to reclaim his act as Sonny on Days of Our Lives. However, Deadline has reported that the versatile actor has earned a meaty role on another CBS show. Interestingly, this time it is a popular primetime show, Fire Country. Zach’s character on the show is named Collin. The actor is scheduled to debut in the episode of January 29, 2023. The show will air right after the Saturday night AFC Championship Game.
Days of Our Lives: No more Sonny Days For Salem?
We know that shooting for Daytime television is no easy feat. Days of Our Lives streams on weekdays, Monday to Friday, that’s certainly a lot of work. Moreover, DOOL is not the only soap Zach appears on. He also plays Fenmore on CBS’s The Young and The Restless. Although we hardly ever get to see him walking the streets of Genoa City anymore. But it still must be pretty hectic for the talented actor. And, with his new primetime role, will he have the time to shoot for a daily soap?
Zach has managed pretty well to juggle all his acting endeavors so far. Thus, we don’t see why he won’t be able to manage in the future. Besides, there has been no news of him exiting Days of Our Lives. Thus, it’s safe to assume the sun isn’t setting for him in Salem anytime soon. So Zach Tinker fans can rejoice at the prospects of seeing him on two shows simultaneously! Speaking of the new show, Zach’s Collin is touted to be a sweet, humble, and talented firefighter on Fire Country. Collin is the son of a legendary firefighting hero. Mark your calendars for Zach’s debut episode, which is titled, Two Pink Lines. Meanwhile, continue watching his journey as Sonny on Days of Our Lives, streaming weekdays on Peacock.
