Soap actress may have walked away from “” for a short time, but the fan favorite is headed back to the Salem spotlight!

According to TV Guide, the actress (who also plays Ashley Abbott on “”) will begin filming at “DAYS” this March for “a powerful Kristen DiMera story arc” that will hit the air this summer!

“The writers have some great things cooking for Kristen and we can’t wait for the fans to see what this will mean for Salem,” says co-executive producer Greg Meng. “Must-watch TV at its best!”

As fans may recall, Kristen was horrified when a super-racy video of her having sex with (ok, raping) a priest (Eric, ) was publicly blasted during her wedding with Brady (). Since then, she’s been M.I.A. — so her reappearance in Salem should make for some pretty scandalous story! Stay tuned…

    I’m very happy that Eileen Davidson is returning to DOOL and i’m thinking Kristen will return pregnant or even with a baby.Then the father could be either Eric or Brady.

      Kristen can’t get pregnant. She is barren. The baby she lost with John (John Jr) was her last chance to get pregnant.

      • Andrew Hass

        I thought Kristen went to a doctor to see if she could get pregnant.So it is possible she could get pregnant and she only took one paternity test after thinking she was pregnant with Eric’s baby and that could have been wrong.As for Eileen’s return it wasn’t announced how it’ll be and it could just be for the Summer.

          Hopefully long enough for her to pull double duty as Kristen AND Susan. Susan Banks is one of those iconic Days characters who makes the show fun and exciting to watch.

    This is great news—I just hope she will be reprising the role of Susan Banks this time around, as Susan is my favourite out of all of Eileen’s roles. Susan is sweet and Kristen is mean, mean, mean!!!

    It’s nice that she’s able to work both shows.

      Her first love is Y&R. Her true love is Days of our Lives, the best soap of all time!!!
