Like sands through a flipped-over hourglass, Greg Vaughan is returning to Days of Our Lives.

The actor will reprise his role on the NBC soap this summer, a recently released promo revealed.

In case it’s been a while since you, too, have been in Salem: Eric has been away from the action, doing missionary work in Africa. Left alone in Salem, his bride Nicole recently succumbed to her baser instincts and cheated with the jilted (or so he thinks) Xander.

“Never say NEVER!” Vaughan tweeted after the summer promo first aired. (Fans will recall that the actor left the daytime drama in 2020, saying that after nearly a decade of playing Eric Brady, he felt “like a glorified extra.”)

Vaughan currently appears on OWN’s Queen Sugar. Press PLAY on the video below to watch a preview of Eric’s return.
