"Days Of Our Lives" spoilers [VIDEO] reveal that Rex Brady could soon be seen in Salem again. As many longtime fans know, Rex is the son of Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) and Roman Brady (Josh Taylor). The character hasn't been seen in town for years, but all that is allegedly about to change.

Is another member of the Brady family coming home to Salem?

Rumors are running wild that a recast has occurred and that Rex Brady will be back in Salem in no time at all. However, Eric Winter, the actor who played Rex in the past, won't be returning for more. According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, former "Days of our Lives [VIDEO]" star, Kyle Lowder, will be taking over the role.

As many "DOOL" viewers will remember, Lowder previously played the role of Brady Black on the NBC soap opera. It was confirmed last week that Kyle has returned to the show, but that he would not be stepping back into his former role, which is currently held by fan-favorite actor Eric Martsolf. Instead, Kyle will be playing a new role, and rumor has it that he's been cast as the new Rex Brady.

The recasting rumors make sense as "Days of our Lives" recently announced that actress Farah Fath would be making a return to Salem as Mimi Lockhart. Mimi and Rex used to be an item, and many fans will remember that Rex left town after finding out that Mimi had gotten pregnant and had an abortion without telling him. The couple just couldn't get past the betrayal and they ended their relationship.

Fans have not seen Rex back in Salem since that time, and have often wondered why no one mentions Roman and Kate's son, or his twin sister, Cassie.

While "Days of our Lives" fans can expect to see Mimi hang around for only a handful of episodes, the soap could keep Rex Brady around much longer. He would be an interesting shakeup to the cast, and could eventually become an exciting love interest for one of Salem's single ladies, such as Gabi Hernandez (Camilla Banus), who recently ended her relationship with Eli Grant after finding out that he had cheated on her with Lani Price (Sal Stowers) and gotten her pregnant. Gabi and Rex could make for an interesting couple, although many "DOOL" viewers have expressed interest in seeing Gabi reunite with JJ Deveraux (Casey Moss) at some point in the future.

"Days of our Lives" fans have been seeing plenty of blasts from the past under head writer Ron Carlivati's leadership, and viewers are loving every minute of the drama he's been providing.
