Donny Boaz Reveals He is OUT at The Young and the Restless

Photo: JPI

Monday will mark the final airdate of Donny Boaz as Chance Chancellor on The Young and the Restless. The actor revealed he is no longer with the CBS Daytime drama series via a lengthy.post on his Instagram account on Sunday.

Recently, Boaz had to be replaced during Chance and Abby’s (Melissa Ordway) wedding when the actor contracted the coronavirus, but has recently returned to taping new episodes.

According to his post, Boaz was let-go sharing it was not his decision to leave.  Then, giving a timeline of the events that transpired, reasons for his departure, and a special shout out to the show and the fans for the opportunity to be on the top-rated soap.

Here is what Donny shared:  “Sad news: Tomorrow, Monday, 02/01/21, as of now… will be my last air date on “The Young and The Restless.”
I’d love to say that this was my choice, that I’ve booked the next big project and leaving of my own accord… but that wouldn’t be the truth.
Here’s what I know…
Dec 22nd: I received my schedule with filming dates through March 2021.
Dec 23: filmed our last day of 2020. Flew to Dallas for the holidays with family.
Dec 24th: At 4pm, I received a phone call, from the powers that be, telling me that Y&R was not going to renew my contract for another cycle.
Merry Christmas.   I was told that Chance is NOT being replaced or killed off, he just disappeared?
Reason for my departure:
“Due to the cost incurred because of Covid testing, production is to let go of 4 or 5 contract players. And due to the writers and future story line… I didn’t make the cut.”
I thought for sure Chance and Abby just married, having a baby and Victor Newman, The Godfather of daytime tv, saying “Welcome to the family, son,” that I was safe… I was wrong.
Regardless the reason... I am not angry or bitter. I am sad. I invested a year of my life into a storyline and didn’t get to see it through. Overall, I am grateful and thankful for this amazing opportunity.
Perspective: A lot of people lost their jobs in 2020. I feel blessed to have had a job during the craziest time of our lives. I know that I’m walking away from this better at my craft than before I started. 108 episodes. I want to thank #yr for this amazing opportunity. I want to thank the fans. You all have been AMAZING. Thank you. I want to thank everyone associated with Y&R, my cast mates and the crew. You will be missed. I want to thank my agents and manager for bringing this opportunity into my life. We are optimistic for what is to come. @mel_ordway I know I said I wanted us to be the greatest daytime tv couple ever, I aimed high, I’m sorry we didn’t get to see it through. Working with you has been my absolute pleasure and I can easily say that you are one of the greatest actresses I’ve ever had the privilege to work with. You deserve an Emmy… this year. And… that’s a wrap. I am now a free agent. Time to get to work.”

So, what do you think of the departure of Boaz?  Will the show ultimately recast although Donny indicates he was told they would not?  What did you think of his farewell message on his Instagram account? Comment below.  

Note: Boaz later revised his Instagram post as below.

To be honest, I am not surprised at this exit. Anthony Morina and Josh Griffith missed the mark with Chance’s return, and I do not believe for one second they won’t be recasting. If anything, I foresee Justin Gaston returning to the role, given the positive reaction audiences had to his being temporarily in the role. My question is, who are the others to leave? And, I can guarantee they will cut the wrong people, and are pissed at Donny Boaz for revealing this information.

Considering Judith Chapman (Gloria) is recurring, she would not be included in the supposed four-to-five regular cast members to be axed. However, Boaz did recant said-statement, so I do believe it might have been false to grab headlines.

I agree, Harry. Gloria brings a much-needed touch of old- school-soaps class to the show. Sally? Not so much. I’ve known too many people like that, just “yessing” everyone to death while plotting behind their backs.

You are wrong from the get go on this. Donny Boaz was amazing. If you ever watched Days when Justin played Ben which only lasted a short time and brought in Robert Scott Wilson (top daytime guy in soaps) no charisma on a soap. Good looking guy but definitely not a better half for Abby on YR. Sally Gloria anyone but Donny

Harry.
Guest
Harry.

I totally concur, Rebecca. He has a way of emoting compassion and love in his eyes when he interacts with Abby. While I was not thrilled with the baby storyline, Boaz made it interesting. He also made Abby more interesting. I’m sorry to him go.

Ron
Guest
Ron

I read that Nina is returning, which leads me to believe that it’s due to Chance’s disappearance… or murder (the ominous phone call in his final scene suggests he’s bolting to protect Abby or he’s dead. Either way, it’s sad to see him go– those scenes when he spilled the beans about HIS medical situation were compelling.

Tricia

Donny was amazing. He is one of the reasons I watch Y and R.

Scott (ATWT Fan)

Scott (ATWT Fan)

Justin Gaston was better in the role of Ben before he was recast, and the role was dismantled into a shell of what it could and should have been. And, as I mentioned above, Judith Chapman (Gloria) is recurring, so she wouldn’t be included. As far as Robert Scott Wilson being the “top daytime guy in soaps,” I find that laughable and completely false. Over-rated and completely tone-deaf, especially when it comes to COVID and its reality.

I loved Donny Boaz as Chance. Missed him when he was sick and Abby’s husband filled in. Glad when he came back.Him and Abby were the perfect couple. He is leaving at a horrible time. I was so excited that they would have the baby as Mariah would be the surrogate. So, no replaced Chance and not recast of a Chance and not died off-Paul sending him off on a long assignment abandoning Abby for now starting today and Abby crushed for sure.

I thank this is not fair or rt. I really like this story line why would you all take him off & in the middle of a story completely i don’t know if I even want to continue watching Y&R. You all could have removed Sally any if her story lines are all deserving i didn’t like her on B&B & now I don’t like her here. This is so sad. PERIOD!!!

Kathy
Guest

I am sad to see(Donny) go. I think he and (mel) make a very nice couple. They fit together like a hand and glove. I do not like when they replace characters from couples like this. It screws up the couple. I don’t think it is right to get rid of him like this. I DEFINITELY WOULD RATHER SEE HIM ON THE SHOW THAN THE WOMAN THAT PLAYS MICHAEL BALDWIN’S MOTHER. I DO NOT CARE FOR THAT PARTICULAR CHARACTER ON THE SHOW. Why did they bring her back

I guess crossing over Bill, Don Diamont from B&B was more expensive then they realized. Obviously Nina is back to spirit him away for an intriguing, edge of your seat, can’t wait for tomorrow storyline that will only happen off screen LOL. It will be can’t miss. Oh my days. Just bring back that awesome comedy duo Pratt and Phelps and be done with it .

Phelps and Pratt we should be so LUCKY

Jennifer W
Guest

God help us. Phelps started the decline of Y&R over seven years ago. She dumped many popular actors to replace them with her favorites from General Hospital & Guiding Light. It was downhill from there.

Fancy
Guest
Fancy

Don’t get me wrong they made plenty of mistakes as well. However it was FAR more entertaining to watch than
what we’re currently being spoon fed.
Y&R has a small cast of characters some of these actors are top notch treat them as such. It starts with a good writing team.

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Guest
Scott (ATWT Fan)

Um, no, she did not. She was hired to do the job Sony Television wanted; if anyone began the decline, it was Maria Arena with her insane plot-driven stories.

Johnny
Guest
Johnny

I am not defending that regime by any means….but Phelps didn’t really dump any long term vets. When she first came on, several actors were let go, but all of them were relative newcomers that were not really clicking with the audience. Those were some very expensive actors, and the cast was bloated. The serial killer storyline of 2015 only really killed young newbies.

Sally needs to go and they need to find someone to replace Chance not leaving Abby in the air it’s not fair to her charat

Jennifer W
Guest
Jennifer W

Frankly, I don’t think Boaz cares if he pissed off the executives at Y&R. They’ve screwed over so many actors during the years, it’s time karma bit them. Griffith & Morina have wrecked this show. I see the actresses that play Sally, Lola, & Tessa as being expendable too. If Summer got the boot, it wouldn’t bother me one bit.

L Mabee

Ci

Agree!! Lola is useless and Summer is so annoying I can’t hardly stand to watch her. They had the perfect Summer before they got this stupid Hunter character to replace her. They can also get rid of Elena and Nate they’re useless too. I love Danny, but I never thought there was any chemistry between him physically and Abby. They weren’t the right matchb from the start. But, he’s an awesome actor and I really like him. However, the casting was never good. And that just became painfully obvious when her husband had to take his place while he had… Read more »

Well, what a sad surprise. Will miss you Donny. You were the best Chance. I don’t know how they can just get rid of him when just starting this new and boring baby SL with Abby. Maybe Abby will fall in love with Mariah and they will raise the baby together. Far-fetched? Stranger things have happened.

Sorry to see him go. Hope there is a fan campaign to get him to stay. I think they trying to put Abby real husband on to stay because that is who replaced him when he was out temporarily. I want him back. I like his character and his presentation.

Momo

I am super surprised. How can Chance just disappear? Are they actually going to recast with Melissa’s husband. Honestly didn’t live Donny in this role, but Chance needs to stay. Chance just married Abby and is trying to have a baby with her. I don’t understand.

They have to recast the role. You can’t have this surrogacy story line and chance nowhere to be seen. He would be there every step of the way to support Abby. The reason they have given for letting him go is rubbish.

Oh yes, hate to see him go! He played the part of Chance so well. He and Abby were so good together! Didn’t care for her husband when he stepped in. His acting skills are not natural like Donny’s.

So sorry to hear you are letting Donny go. He was the best actor for the role. Hope you get rid of Sally and don’t bring Theo back they bring nothing to the show!

I really, really liked Donny Boaz in this role because he really makes this story line bearable. I am so sick of Abby wining. He is so personable handsome. I didn’t like the guy who played his part while he was out sick. He was boring and just tolerable. Don’t mess up a good thing!

They need to send Gloria talking about cutting people they brought her back! Theo suppose to be returning they full of it, but doing these crossovers they bringing Moses on soon Y&R just want get rid of people using covid as an excuse but getting rid of the wrong ones!

Because of covid you don’t cut back the only things alot of people look forward too… WRONG MOVE

Wow to let this fine actor go is stupid and dump. He is awesome and the chemistry is awesome with his partner.

There are others I’d rather they let go- Lola. And even some Newmans, but that would never happen. It’s all about money $$$.. The top brass doesn’t see the characters/actors as we do. They have no connection, they are about the dollars. The finance dept decides who to cut. too sad, I liked Chance/Donny.. But- now they have need to pay for Moses. and the new redhead.. Y&R has always had a revolving door. ie(all of Victorias lovers to be husbands. If you are not an Abbot or Newman you will be a short stay. Anyways; Y&R has been horrible… Read more »

Su000,
Y&R has been boring a true snooze fest..
as I mentioned before Pratt & Phelps should be running the show.. these current WRITERS are officially recognized as being the WORST. Abby and real life husband had no chemistry whatsoever on screen business & personal don’t mix.. Hope they don’t replace Donny W/ her husband. If CBS is having so called money $$$ issues of Y&R then they should cut its Executive Producer, he’s running this show into the ground.

I would rather Mal Young return as executive producer with a dual team of head writers. In truth, I was not a fan of Jill Farren Phelps’ style as executive producer (though she did the job she was hired for), and, while Charles Pratt, Jr was a pretty good head writer, I barely remember his storylines in the long run.

What a shock, this came out of left field and makes absolutely no sense. This is Abby’s best pairing ever – so much chemistry between them; a lovely wedding and, much as I hate the baby sl, they’ve had a lot of screen time. He’s joined the Newman/Abbott family and now he’s gone. Terrible decision – and I can think of several who need to go before someone in his position – Sally being the first. I’m so fed-up with decisions like this.

Several years ago I would have said this is the Abby curse! Think Stitch and Scott abruptly gone when they got involved with her.

I read that he aired his conservative politics on Twitter. He liked a post that somebody made replying to EB about the election. He signed a new contract in October. His Twitter incident was in early December. Somebody actually came out on Twitter and told him he better not piss EB off or he would be fired. He was fired on Christmas Eve.I will no longer be watching….sick of the cancel culture! Also the actresses that play Mariah and Tessa were on Twitter making rude comments about him. He is a Trump supporter.

Timmm,
Better yet… if Billy Miller chooses not to reprise his role of Drew then Donny B. would be a perfect fit. Sam & Drew are better suited since she’s moved on from Jason. Pairing Jason & Britt is a smart move. Finally Dante and Lulu need a chance to get it right this go round..When she wakes up it has to be original Lulu Julie B.

Margherita
Guest

Loved Donny in this role of Chance. Rather than getting rid of 4 or 5 contract roles, why not simply get rid of Michelle Stafford. I’m sure her salary is probably at least 3 or 4 times the others, and I cannot stand her since her return in the role post Gina. I know she is the original Phyllis, but her current approach to the role is super annoying and not pleasant or interesting to watch.

I can see #YR, #CBSDaytime and #SonyPictures being royally pissed at Donny for revealing insider info that shouldn’t have been made public.

I’m just surprised that all parties concerned were able to keep his departure from the show under wraps until yesterday.

I have been a Y and R fan since 1973 and there has been many idiotic decisions made since the early 2000’s. It has truly been getting harder to watch the show. All my friends that shared conversations about events on the show stopped watching because of the decisions made regarding the various characters.

Worst decision ever. Chance and Abby are a great storyline and the only one worth watching. While he was out, he was missed. His replacement was not even a good actor. But the same writers probably write Bold and the Beautiful and it has been steadily going down hill. Get rid of Victoria, she is not that great of an actress, boring and snooty. Y&R’s loss of Donny will be someone elses gain and I’ll swith to that show.

Once again they got it wrong! Please don’t say he will be replaced with Melissa’s Ordway’s husband, because he was not believable in the role. The show is experiencing so many missed opportunities. Devon’s what the hell were you thinking moment with Elena was ridiculous! This is the woman that he told MANY times that nothing was happening with Amanda. But, the first chance she gets she sleeps with his cousin – Easily forgotten? HELL NO! Jack and Sally? The recreation of the John and Jill storyline. Come on Y&R, give us better than this!

Agree,especially how they’ve ruined Elena’s character. First she cheats on Devon for feeling so insecure so what is really her excuse for cheating on Nate?

I think that the Devon and Elena moment will probably result in a pregnancy, and who’s the daddy storyline…

This is an absolute disaster for Y&R. Your ratings will drop dramatically. You see what happened to Day Of Our Lives when Cierra was gone. SHAME ON YOU FOR LOOSING THE BEST MALE ACTOR EVER. Why didn’t you get rid of Kyle and Summer instead?

I agree – I missed Donny when he was off – Chance & Abby were believable as a couple- great acting skills for sure. Guess Y & R is not looking at quality of skills

I like Donnie and the roll of chance and I think he and Abby makes such an adorable couple I would rather you get rid of Sally Gloria and possibly even Adam I don’t particularly like those characters I don’t know why you have to get rid of good actors and good parts and bring in the ones that people don’t particularly care to watch you’re going to lose a lot of your people that love to watch the show

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?
