Days of our Lives long-time star, Alison Sweeney announced via her Instagram account on Sunday that she is indeed returning to the NBC soap opera just in time for its 50th anniversary.  The show milestone will happen later this year in November.

Sweeney, who lost in her bid to win last night in her first ever Daytime Emmy for Lead Actress in her first nomination in almost 22 years playing the role of Sami Brady DiMera, posted the news of her return to the Salem canvas with a picture of her with a DAYS script.

Ali related: ” Guess what?! I get to be a part of celebrating #days50 !!! So thrilled!!!”  Just when Sweeney’s actual return date to the airwaves is has not been announced, but the series is taping episodes that look to be airing in late August/early September at this point in time, since DAYS tapes so far ahead.

What do you think about the news of Alison returning to DAYS to help celebrate the series 50th? Comment below!

    It’ll be nice to see Sami again! I wish Ali would have won the Emmy, but if she or Peggy McCay couldn’t, I’m glad Maura did!

    I hope the writing is good and they DONT age her children!!!! And there needs to be a reveal that EJ is alive!! The Hollywood exit was very poorly written and contrived…..

    That’s a good point, richard. One never knows….perhaps there will be a reveal that EJ is alive. There should be a happy ending for Sami and EJ.

    What a shocker!
    I mean, really, who didn’t know she’d only be gone for two New York minutes?
    I think she just left only to come back in order to garner attention.
    But really, Miss Sweeney, how can we miss you if you won’t go away?

    Her scenes won’t air until September? This is April. Honestly, Days Of Our Lives tapes too far in advance. Are we expected to be excited about something that won’t be seen for close to 6 months?
