Gibbs, who was recently inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame, will make her debut as Olivia Price; the mother of Harry’s character, Paulina Price.

The Emmy award-winning actress joined the cast earlier this year and is set to star in the Peacock limited series spinoff, Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem.

The show’s head writer, Ron Carlivati, expressed his excitement by tweeting “Get excited…” with a GIF from the late 80s series.

As fans may recall, the five-season sitcom followed the gossipy yet honest Mary Jenkins (Gibbs) and equally chatty Sandra Clark (Harry) in their Washington D.C. apartment building. The Emmy-nominated series kicked off Regina King‘s career as she played Clark and Lester’s (Hal Williams) studious and boy-crazy daughter.

Gibbs will make her first appearance on August 17.
