Hot on the heels of the news that former Days of our Lives actors Stephen Nichols and Peter Reckell will be returning as their characters Steve Johnson and Bo Brady for the show's big 50th anniversary celebration came news that Alison Sweeney would be returning as Sami Brady, as well. But is it true?
Earlier this week, television reporter Michael Logan tweeted that he'd had a talk with DAYS' executive producer, Ken Corday, and teased, “lots of fan faves returning, big drama, lots of [heart], @Ali_Sweeney confirmed.”
The actress' fans hit the roof with excitement, but shortly following the tweet, Logan posted a Sweeney update: “According to her PR rep, ‘This is wishful thinking on Ken's part, not a done deal.'”
In announcing her departure from DAYS last year, Sweeney said that she wanted, if not expected, to return to DAYS for the 50th anniversary.
Considering Sami is one of the most popular characters in the show's history, we're guessing that Corday isn't the only one guilty of wishful thinking regarding a Sweeney return. So will it happen? The show's PR team has yet to comment, so it looks like fans will have to wait and see.
