Original article March 24:

Fans of departed "Days of our Lives" star Alison Sweeney (ex-Sami) have something to be happy about. TV Guide's Michael Logan has confirmed that the longtime star of the soap will be headed back to Salem in time for the show's 50th anniversary.

News of Sweeney's return follows last week's announcement that fellow fan faves Peter Reckell and Stephen Nichols are set to return to Days as well. No word yet on what will bring Samantha back, and for how long, but will keep you updated as more information becomes available.

Sweeney left the cast of "Days" in October 2014. Fans can catch her this May in Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder.
