Days of Our Lives spoilers hint Tyler Christopher may return as Stefan DiMera. Fans know Brandon Barash takes Stefan out of Salem with a summertime exit. However, the role originator hinted in a recent interview that he might come back as Stefan in the future. For those that love the vibe that Stefano’s son brought to the character canvas at DOOL, there is hope! Check out what that NBC actor said about his exit and possible comeback.
Days of Our Lives: Tyler Christopher Admits Alcohol Struggle
A source told Soap Dirt last year that Tyler was struggling with his sobriety. The insider claimed Tyler was taken off the DOOL set one day after passing out. At the time, we chose not to report it as it was a matter of great privacy. Since the actor has himself come forward now with details, we can exclusively share that. We were also contacted by a source that claimed to be at rehab with Tyler Christopher.
We won’t divulge those details either. Rehab and other medical info is under the presumed veil of confidence, which we won’t violate. This week in the soap magazines, the former Stefan DiMera portrayer acknowledged he made a deal with the soap to address his issues and if he did, there might be a shot for him to come back to Days of Our Lives so long as his recovery was back on track.
DOOL Spoilers: Stefan DiMera Leaves Then Returns?
As Days of Our Lives spoilers showed months ago, that Brandon Barash stepped into the role of Stefan DiMera when Tyler Christopher had to leave suddenly to get into treatment. Fans know the show shoots six months out. So, Stefan leaves the character canvas this Summer. Brandon Barash final air dates as Stefan DiMera are August 2019.
As of now, that means the DiMera heir leaves the same time as Chloe and other characters. Tyler Christopher’s exit as Stefan DiMera might not be permanent. Certainly, he was a fan favorite from the moment he hit the DOOL screen. Ron Carlivati knew Tyler Christopher for years since they worked together at General Hospital at ABC.
As a door closes, @Tyler2929 & @MrRobertScott deserve to be commended for bringing the duo of #Sten into our hearts. The RSW & TC dynamic was incredible. They brought out the best in each other & it was a pleasure to watch.The OG #Sten will forever hold a place in my heart! #Days pic.twitter.com/w5u7txIM9I

Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Making Plans for Return?
Other DOOL spoilers from the actor are that he’s got a plan in place if he and the NBC soap work out a deal for him to return as Stefan. One of the issues he attributes for his relapse is the distance from his family who were living in Indiana at the time. He said if he comes back to the sudser that his “family would come along this time”. He says they “need to be together”.
Days of Our Lives spoilers await Stefan DiMera’s exit. Brandon Barash completed filming reportedly. Actors on the show are generally radio silent when they leave the sudser and only post on social media when their start and final air dates approach. Brandon wrapped already so that clears a path for a possible return of Tyler as Stefan.
Fans embraced Brandon as the recast and lots would welcome Stefan DiMera back with open arms. It sure seems that Tyler Christopher open to a DOOL comeback and fans miss him (while also appreciating Brandon Barash’s good work in his place). So, maybe, just maybe, Stefan DiMera will ride again!
