Alison Sweeney has confirmed that Sami Brady will return to Days of Our Lives. However lest you jump for joy about Sami Brady once again becoming a permanent fixture in Salem, it sounds like she's only returning for the show's 50th anniversary celebration, set to air later in 2015.

When Sweeney left Days of Our Lives in December, she made it clear she was always open to returning. She didn't elaborate, however, on whether that return would be for good or simply for a quick visit in Salem.

While confirmation about Alison Sweeney returning to Days didn't come in the form of a statement, it did come in the form of an Instagram photo she shared with her followers.

In that photo, Sweeney--also host of The Biggest Loser--is holding a script. That script is very clearly labeled, "Ali/Sami" at the top.

"Guess what?! I get to be a part of celebrating #days50 !!! So thrilled!!!" Alison Sweeney captioned the post.

What do you expect Sami Brady will do when she returns to Salem and learns that Lucas Horton (just one of her ex-husbands, and her son Will Horton's father) has taken up with Adrienne Kiriakis (played by Judi Evans) even though Adrienne is still married to Justin?

Alison Sweeney was a mainstay on Days of Our Lives, and most fans will say the show simply isn't the same without her.

Are you a Days of Our Lives fans? Will you now be counting the days until Alison Sweeney (as Sami Brady) makes her return to the daytime drama?
