Sweeney left the show in 2013 after playing the said role for 21 years. Sami and her two sons head to Los Angeles after executives offer to write the Sami Brady Story based on her struggles. In the video that Alison Sweeney posted, she let the fans know that she was truly excited to be able to share that news "in person" and she was also extremely excited to be heading back to Salem.
Sweeney announced her departure from the series in January 2014, noting that she'd been on the series since she was 16 and had "never had more than a two-week vacation in that whole time".
