Sweeney played Sami for 21 years, starting in 1993. She is returning to the show next month for an extended visit.
Since leaving Days, Sweeney has been busy with her Murder, She Baked movie series and other projects.
“From my end, it takes a little bit of logistics with projects I’m working on,” she tells Digest. “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.”
