After 21 years in Salem, Alison Sweeney (Sami) has decided to leaves "Days of Our Lives" behind. The actress appeared on "The Ellen Degeneres Show" to make the announcement that this would be her last year with the series. She cited a desire to spend time with her family and pursue her writing as the reason for her departure. Watch this video to find out how she thinks her character might exit the canvas.
Sweeney's final air date has not been announced though her last shooting date will be at the end of May. Since "Days Of Our Lives" shoots four and a half months in advance, she'll likely be seen for most of 2014. Soaps.com will update you as more information becomes available.
