Molly Burnett is returning to Days of our Lives.
Actress Molly Burnett is returning to NBC soap opera Days of our Lives as Melanie Jonas on Friday, November 21.

"I'm moving back to Salem," Melanie reveals to Maggie (Suzanne Rogers).

Melanie comes home after making a "big mistake" in Europe.

"She made a very typical Melanie mistake," Burnett explains in an interview with TV Guide Magazine. "I'm serious when I say she's grown and evolved but a person doesn't change too much. Maggie hasn't been there to smack her around. The people who really know her — Daniel, Maggie, Brady — are suspicious. They love her and trust her but something seems off. She's not lying to them to be conniving. She did some dumb things while she was away and doesn't want her loved ones to know. She really hates letting people down."

Burnett has been nominated for two Daytime Emmy Awards and one Indie Series Award during her career which includes roles in Addicts Anonymous, Empire, Venice, True Blood and Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous.
