"Aww! It's like going home. So happy 2 b back in Salem -- directing," Sweeney said on Twitter along with a photo of herself, Lauren Koslow, and Deidre Hall.
This will not be Sweeney's first time behind the camera. She's previously directed and episode of Days of our Lives and recently took a turn behind the camera at ABC's General Hospital, where there are reportedly plans in place to have her do it again in the future.
