After months of unconfirmed speculation, fans of Days of our Lives star Camila Banus can rest easy. Though the actress was set to exit screens later this month as the fiery Gabi Hernandez-DiMera, it turns out Banus’ departure will be short-lived.

According to an exclusive report from TV Insider, Days of our Lives has announced the actress will return to the soap when the series resumes production in September.

Production on the NBC soap has been halted since spring due to the coronavirus epidemic. However, unlike its peers, DAYS has episodes banked through October due to their taping schedule. The Bold and the Beautiful was the first soap to resume production in July, followed by General Hospital and The Young and the Restless.

For months, fans have wondered aloud if rumors of the fan favorite’s departure from the long-running NBC soap opera were true. Let’s be clear — Camila Banus had indeed wrapped and filmed an exit for her character. Thankfully, we now know Gabi will be back in Salem breaking hearts and scheming before we know it.

Look for Gabi to temporarily leave Salem with her brother Rafe (departing star Galen Gering) on August 28.

Days of our Lives airs weekdays on NBC. Episodes are available on Demand, NBC.com and Peakcock streaming.
