"I have big news to share -- I'm coming back to Days! I'm so excited to tell all of you in person, sort of," Sweeney said in the clip.

"I'm really, really excited to be back in Salem," she added. "I'm going to start shooting again in a couple weeks, so you have to tune in to find out more."

Sweeney left Days of Our Lives in 2014 after starring on the series since 1993. She told Soap Opera Digest she will return to the show in May for "an extended visit."

"From my end, it takes a little bit of logistics with projects I'm working on. And unfortunately, this year's been hard for me because of my knee injury, so I had to push some stuff back," the star explained.

"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," she shared.
