Yes, Days fans, Allison Sweeney as Sami Brady will be back on our screens again causing mayhem and charming our pants off!
Sweeney will play the wildly popular character, Sami Brady, once again on Days of Our Lives, for an “extended visit,” she told Soap Opera Digest. See Sweeney’s excited Instagram post on the topic below.
“From my end, it takes a little bit of logistics with projects I’m working on,” Sweeney said. “And unfortunately, this year’s been hard for me because of my knee injury, so I had to push some stuff back. So, I figured out a schedule, blocked out some time that I had available and we figured it out! I’ll be shooting in Salem in May and June.”
“I am extremely excited. I miss Sami,” she told Soap Opera Digest in its latest print edition, coming to newsstands later this week.
His First Big Move
Sweeney’s return is new Days Head Writer, Ron Carlivati’s, first big move since he took over top scribe duties at the NBC sudser.
Carlivati is known for bringing fan favorites back and honoring show history, so we wouldn’t be surprised if Sweeney’s return sets the stage for more Salem fave comebacks. And, if this extended visit is successful and a hit with fans–and you just know it will be–could Sweeny be back for good? So, dear Soap Cities readers, let’s watch, let Days know how we feel, and see that that happens!
Sweeney’s been busy making a franchise out of her Hallmark Channel Murder She Baked movies and doing other projects, but if the deal is sweet enough, we think she could be lured back to a permanent residence in Salem. After all, she played Sami for 21 years and has said repeatedly how much she loved it. And fans just can’t get enough of her, of course!.
