"We'll see her first in Beyond Salem," writer Ron Carlivati revealed. "One of the great things about [the spinoff] is that it gives us an opportunity to catch up with people who have left town, given that almost the entire story takes place in these other locations.”


“This is an example of that. It will be interesting to find out where she is in her life, and what might bring her back to Salem," he added.

Stephanie's family dynamic may have changed now that she has a new half-brother, Tripp, when she returns to Salem. Of course, Days of Our Lives fans are overjoyed that the iconic character is returning, and they can't wait to see what she has in store for her.
