The Johnson family (13 members) is one of the most important families on Days of Our Lives. The family debuted in 1985. A lot of characters from other families have been in a relationship or marriage with a member of the Johnson family.
The Johnsons are a family living in the town of Salem on the NBC soap opera Days of Our Lives. The Johnsons began as a lower class family, in the last two decades the family has lifted itself up and become contributing members of Salem society. Although they were a major family in the late 1980s, for more than a decade the family was solely represented on the show by Jack Deveraux. Within the last year, however, many members of the family have returned while Jack, the primary Johnson, has left. In 2011, however, things started to return to the status quo, as Jack returned to the series in September while Steve Johnson and Stephanie Johnson have all departed once again. As of 2020, the family is represented by Jack, Steve, Sonny Kiriakis, Abigail Deveraux, Stephanie and Joey Johnson, J.J. Deveraux, Tripp Dalton, Thomas and Charlotte DiMera.
