“I’ve kept quiet as long as I could,” wrote the 28-year-old actress. “After much thought, I’ve decided the timing was right for me to set sail from Salem. I must say that I have thoroughly enjoyed every single beautiful and messy moment of being Abigail, and will always treasure our time together.” 

Mansi’s last episode will air in May. NBC declined to comment about whether it will find a new Abigail.
