‘Days of Our Lives’ fans wonder if Lucas Adams is leaving the soap opera
Tripp’s goodbye will be emotional for Steve, Kayla Brady (Mary Beth Evans), and Ava Vitali (Tamara Braun). It’ll also be tearjerking for fans who wonder if this is the last they’ll see of the character. Tripp’s upcoming departure has led to speculation on Adams’ status with Days of Our Lives.
On a Reddit thread, fans voiced their opinions on Adams’ possible exit from the soap opera. “Well, I am sad to see him go. He is one of the better characters on the show. Plus, making him a doctor was great. So now what?” asked one user.
“That sucks. It’s too bad they brought him back for Allie, and now that she’s moved on, they have no use for him. It’s a shame too because he’s a decent actor, and Tripp could have moved on to other storylines,” wrote one viewer.
“So he basically saves Salem from the devil and gets the boot. Smh,” another commenter chimed in.
Fans will see Tripp Johnson one last time this summer
While there’s been no official confirmation, all signs point to Adams and his character leaving Salem. However, this won’t be the last viewers see of him.
