On August 24, it was announced she would return to show business the next day, on which her official blog opened and an interview with FLASH magazine was published.
On August 30, she returned to TV in a TBS show called Sunday Japan.
On September 5, she appeared as a model in Tokyo Girls Collection at Yoyogi Stadium. Her agency stated, "She's returning as a talent with a bright and cheerful character, cultivated by her time in Morning Musume, that anybody would love. In the future, she'll be an actor with special and rare talents." The FLASH interview revealed that her husband and her two children have supported her in her comeback decision. She's realized she can't be an idol anymore, and doesn't want to be a mama-dol either, and that she hasn't been in contact with Morning Musume members, but she would like to appear on TV shows with them.
On May 18, Ichii Sayaka was in a movie titled Ashita ni Kakeru Ai. Ichii commented, "I think it will be a heartwarming work that portrays love across generations."

On June 14, it was announced that Ichii divorced her husband on May 23. Sayaka was dissatisfied with her husband's uncooperative attitude in raising their two daughters. She was also said to be frustrated with Yoshizawa when he quit being a guitarist and settled into a period where he had no work.

On May 6, Ichii joined the idol group OFR48 (not related to AKB48). OFR48's full name is "Ofuro48," and was formed in 2011 with the concept of the members being bath house workers that you can go meet. She graduated from the group on August 31.
