Lori Loughlin has traded in her handcuffs to return to acting on the small screen.
The first look at Loughlin, 57, in the second season of “When Hope Calls,” a spin-off of Hallmark Channel’s “When Calls the Heart,” was released on Friday.
She’s set to appear in the show’s two-part premiere titled “When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas” when it debuts on Dec. 18, according to Deadline.
Reprising her role as Abigail Stanton, the new season marks Loughlin’s first acting gig since being released from prison in Dec. 2020.
The actress and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, pled guilty to paying bribes in order to get their two daughters — Olivia Jade, 22, and Isabella Rose, 23 — into the University of Southern California.
While Loughlin only served two months at the end of 2020, her hubby, Giannulli, 58, was sentenced to five months behind bars, though he ended up being released two weeks early.
Following their prison stints, Loughlin and her fashion designer husband were put on probation — but that didn’t stop them from quickly jumping back into a life of luxe by spending time traveling and catching up on rest and relaxation.
They first checked into The Madison Club, a luxury golf club and resort in La Quinta, just two weeks after Giannulli was picked up from prison by their daughters.
Soon after their first getaway, the couple petitioned a judge for permission to travel out of the country to Mexico together, which they were granted.
Loughlin and Giannulli jetted down to Cabo San Lucas in their vacation best, as Page Six exclusively reported at the time.
