'Days of Our Lives': Sami's back! Alison Sweeney shows us her first day back on set

Friday the 13th is Days of Our Lives fans’ lucky day. Sami Brady, Alison Sweeney’s iconic DOOL character, has returned to her old Salem stomping grounds, and we’ve got the pics to prove it. Sweeney, who starred on the NBC soap for two decades before stepping back in 2014, took over our Instagram account to give us an inside look at her return to the show. The early call times may be hard to get used to, but it’s like no time has passed (and no sand through the hourglass) as she reunites with the makeup team, the crew, and her co-stars. (Spoiler alert: Sami’s first scenes are with Drake Hogestyn, aka John Black!) Click through to see all of Sweeney’s homecoming snaps.

Days of Our Lives airs weekdays on NBC.
