While it’s been the worst kept secret in daytime, Soap Opera Network can finally report that actress Molly Burnett is returning to NBC’s “Days of our Lives” in the contract role of Melanie Jonas, a role in which she originated in 2008. Burnett, who left the soap in 2012 in order to pursue outside projects, returns to Salem as her character harbors a secret that even daddy Jonas (Shawn Christian) isn’t aware of!

It’ll be a November to remember when Melanie returns to town in mid to late November. The actress will likely share scenes with several of Salem’s hottest men upon her return, including Ben (Robert Scott Wilson) and Chad (now played by Billy Flynn), who are currently fawning over Abigail (Kate Mansi).

To find out what Melanie has been up to since she last was in town, make sure to tune into “Days of our Lives” everyday during the month of November as we expect plenty of nuggets being dropped leading up to her return.
