‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Griffin Kunitz Back as Johnny DiMera – A Chip Off Stefano’s Block

Days of Our Lives spoilers reveal that Griffin Kunitz is headed back to Salem as Johnny DiMera. It’s been a minute since we’ve seen the grandson of Stefano DiMera – and son of EJ DiMera and Samantha Brady (Alison Sweeney). Look out, Salem, Johnny is headed home and he is a chip off his Nonno’s block.

Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Griffin Kunitz To Return As Johnny DiMera

Days of Our Lives spoilers show that Griffin Kunitz is set to reprise his role as Johnny DiMera. The role was last played by Griffin and his twin brother Aaron Kunitz. The twins shared the role from 2009-2014. The character exited when Sami Brady left Salem shortly after EJ “died”.  Griffin Kunitz plays the role solo this time when Stefano DiMera’s grandkid returns to Salem.

Griffin Kunitz shared an Instagram photo of him on the DOOL set, holding what appeared to be a script. This had fans excited for the young DiMera to return. Days of Our Lives spoilers indicate when Johnny returns in later this year, he will not be the sweet kid that left five years ago. He will return embracing his DiMera roots – a mini Stefano DiMera – a chip off the old diabolical block!

DOOL Spoilers: Johnny DiMera Out Of Control In Europe

Days of Our Lives spoilers proved that Johnny DiMera was running amok in Europe. Clearly, he was more than his mother could handle. Between overseeing EJ’s recovery and Allie’s drinking problem, Sami sought the help of Johnny’s former step-father, Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering). Johnny and Rafe always had a special bond. Sami felt that only Rafe could get through to her wayward son.

Rafe’s decision to leave Salem to help get Johnny back on the right path did not sit well with Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso). Although Johnny is her great-nephew, Hope still was not onboard with Rafe’s decision to jet off to Italy. After all, Hope still has not completely forgiven Rafe for the one-night stand with Sami. Days of Our Lives spoilers will show her jealousy is still a factor. Regardless, Rafe loves the boy like a son needed him and will do what’s needed to get Johnny back on track. But with Stefano DiMera in his gene pool, it won’t be so easy.

Teenage Johnny DiMera Returns Without Twin Sister

Days of Our Lives sees an angry teen Johnny DiMera back in Salem in a few months. He comes to town with an agenda. A dark side of the young man emerges. He will embrace his grandfather’s persona so everyone better watch out. DOOL spoilers indicate that his twin sister Allie Horton does not join him – at least not at first. But there’s a big change expected in the grandkid of Stefano DiMera.

The DiMera clan is light in numbers these days. Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn) and Abigail Deveraux (Kate Mansi) are exiting this week and Stefan DiMera (Tyler Christopher) will also exit in late summer. By the time he rolls into town, he just might be the only DiMera in town! Watch DOOL to see what leads to Johnny DiMera’s return and what he does once he’s back.
