The actress, who last appeared onscreen in February 2016, had planned a return to the NBC soap later that year but had to take a leave of absence last summer following a diagnosis of Acute Myeloid Leukemia.
“I consider this just a bump in the road,” she wrote on her blog at the time. “I have amazing prayer warriors, family, and friends that have been extremely supportive and life-affirming throughout this.”
In February, the One Life to Live alum announced some good news via social media: “Today is #WorldCancerDay, and I am grateful to say I am cancer-free.”
Per Soap Opera Digest, DePaiva is now filming episodes of the long-running daytime drama. Those episodes are slated to air in late September.
