"I am excited to announce my return to contract status at #BoldandBeautiful," Gareis posted. "#Donna is BACK!"
Gareis took on the role of Donna in 2006 and remained a contract player through 2015. Since that time, she has appeared on a recurring basis.
In addition to her B&B work, Gareis also played the role of The Young and the Restless' Grace Turner.
Gareis will be seen next on B&B next week. On September 25, Gareis will join the rest of the Logan ladies for a special family occasion. Her first appearance as a contract player, however, will come in mid-October.
