‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Stefano DiMera Recast Hinted – Fans Outraged

Days of Our Lives spoilers hint the NBC soap may recast Stefano DiMera. But Joseph Mascolo fans aren’t interested in any talk about them recasting this legacy character. But would DOOL actually do this? New spoilers show increasing mentions of Stefano, so fans are right to wonder and worry. But would the network actually do this? Check out the latest scoop.

Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Joseph Mascolo Gone – Stefano DiMera Recast Hinted

DOOL spoilers had brainwashed Hope Brady AKA Princess Gina (Kristian Alfonso) steal Stefano DiMera’s portrait from the mansion. Plus, Dr Wilhelm Rolf (William Utay) and Vivian Alamain (Robin Strasser) said outright someone else is running the operation of resurrections and strange science.

Kristen DiMera’s (Stacy Haiduk) not in charge on Days of Our Lives. And Rolf keeps talking on the phone to his boss and referring to Stefano. And that’s why he saved Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow). Now, there are huge hints from the way Rolf and Gina behave that it’s Stefano DiMera pulling the strings.

However, that doesn’t necessarily mean there’s a recast ahead. You can see from some of the passionate fan comments below that to most viewers, there’s only one Stefano DiMera. So, these Days of Our Lives spoilers about the OG villain might be about celebrating the show’s 55th anniversary – not a recast.

DOOL Spoilers: Chad DiMera Confirms He’s Talking To His Dad

On Monday’s episode, Days of Our Lives spoilers tell us Chad DiMera’s (Billy Flynn) back in Salem. Alongside him is Abigail DiMera (Kate Mansi). Then, next week, Chad confesses to Abby that he’s been talking to his father Stefano DiMera. So, there’s one more name drop.

Clearly, they’re going to keep on with these cryptic spoilers throughout Days of Our Lives sweeps. Remember, the time jump comes on Friday and next week, everything changes. So, no doubt, there will be more name drops. Clearly, Rolf thinks he’s working for his old boss, but is it true?

This time last year, Days of Our Lives spoilers remind there was this video about Joseph Mascolo and the epic character of Stefano DiMera. The entire cast shared their thoughts and John Aniston’s words resonate. The Victor Kiriakis portrayer said “he was one of a kind”. That’s the fans’ take too.

Days of Our Lives: Stefano DiMera Back – But No Recast?

Remember, there are ways the NBC soap could revive the memory of Joseph Mascolo as Stefano DiMera without a recast to upset fans. Showrunner Ron Carlivati’s resurrections and other plots can be outer limits, but you can tell he’s got a deep love for the show’s legacy and wouldn’t tarnish it.

So, Days of Our Lives spoilers may have Stefano DiMera’s “return” be one in the shadows. Where’s unseen, on the phone talking to people. He may be mentioned but never seen, operating in the shadows. No doubt this is all about the anniversary and big shake-ups, but Stefano DiMera’s gone.

The odds of a Stefano DiMera recast seem slim. But DOOL can bring him back to life without bringing in a new actor. It’s easy enough to be clever and invoke his memory through clever plot devices. That way they won’t tarnish the past and can honor it instead on the NBC sudser.
