Doug Davidson Back To The Young and the Restless

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Big news Y&R fans, longtime veteran and fan favorite, Doug Davidson is back filming scenes at CBS Daytime’s top-rated soap as Paul Williams.

The news broke when Eric Braeden tweeted a picture of himself with Davidson that simply stated: “He’s Back”

A spokesperson for Y&R did confirm that Davidson (who had been taken off contract by the series a year ago back in January, which caused quite the social media stir) was back on set filming on Friday.  That episode in which Davidson is in will air on March 25th.

Davidson tweeted: “Okay! So, the cat is out of the bag. NONE of any of this would happen without all of your undying loyalty, support and kindness. All of you are the reason “Paul” is back on the canvas. THANK YOU SO MUCH. has been incredible the entire time. A huge thanks to him as well!”

Doug is a Daytime Emmy winner, who started on the daytime drama series back in 1978.  Y&R did receive pushback under Mal Young’s (Ex-EP and head writer) regime for its misuse of long-standing vets.

Braeden also tweeted with the photo: “I want to thank from SONY, JOSH GRIFFITH and TONY MORINA, for turning the ship around!!! Steve made an executive decision a few months ago and we want to thank him for it!”

So, excited to hear that Davidson is back taping at Y&R? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Thank Goodness!!! It’s been strange having Christine show up all over the GCPD and Paul has been nowhere with no explanation. I do very much like Rey – keep him on in the GCPD too. And bring back the character of Paul and Nikki’s son, Dylan, whose been in witness protection where ever. Jacob Young could fill that role nicely, and this could explain Paul’s absence if he went undercover with his son.

Good idea about Jacob Young. Send Rey’s wife off to prison for clubbing Lola and Sharon can go back to Dylan. I am really not in the mood for another round of Sharon and Nick. Let Meya rot in jail for awhile. It would be interesting for Rey if she shared a cell with Sharon. He would exhaust himself with all those “visits “

I believe that Mia attacked Lola, also.

That’s a good idea for an explanation as to why Paul was gone; I’m glad he’s back! Jacob would be a good choice for Dylan.

Be still mine heart!!!! Yes! Yes! Yes! Paul/Doug……you’re back!! Oh, how I have missed you!! Does that mean Rey is out? Please, let it be so…..and take that disgusting, fishwife….classless wifey with you!! She clocked Lola!!
Love you Doug!!

Hey there, Celia! 🙂 I’m not overly familiar with Paul/Doug.. All the years I’ve watched he wasn’t that active on screen, no big stories for him.. I came in around the time his son died and that was his last story that I recall.. he has a great many fans and I see they are excited about his return..happy for you guys! Doug was taken off contract but he remained on recurring, yes? Anyways, I knew he’d return.. And- Rey and Family are here to stay, no doubt of that.. Perhaps Rey will cover for Sharon and be found out… Read more »

Hey, SuzieQ,
You really think ALL the Rosales(es) are here to stay? I don’t know if I can withstand watching Mia and Arturo much longer……Too bad Abby didn’t pull rolly-polly’s hair in return—-I would have made minced meat out of her….HaHa!!
I did say that Rey could go either way–his love for justice is greater than his love for Sharon, I guess. Hmmmm. Too bad, LOL.
As I said, I have been watching since I was in diapers, and Paul has been to he!! and back–love him!! Glad he’s back…..for a long, long time, I hope!!

Hiiiii ! Celia..
I’d guess- if any Rosales would leave it would be Mia ..

The Rosales family is now woven into the 2 main families and they are a Spanish? family, a different culture is needed.

ahaa that Mia is a rocket..
she a fire starter and that creates drama, good for that character to light fires!

Celia
Guest
Celia

Hey, there, SuzieQ, The Rosales(es) are not Spanish….I think they are supposedly Hispanic, of Cuban heritage ( living in Miami)? I think that’s what Arturo had said. Not from Spain. It seems to me that Rey and Lola are authentic siblings. Arturo does not belong….and, Mia is crazy. I think she hit Lola over the head, mistaking her for Abby. So, you may be right….Mia will be caught and off the show she goes. I hope Kyle saves Lola!! I really like her. I welcome any woman with fire…..perhaps, I am the only one who doesn’t like Mia—-she does not… Read more »

Celia
Guest
Celia

Hi, Mark Y,
Missed conversing with you….always en pointe.
I guess I am the only one who finds Mia not to be the typical soap biatch….doesn’t, fit the bill for me.
When I think of such a woman as fatale, I always assimilate her with a siren; enviosioning the beutiful, etherial, mythological Lorelei—- Mia is not—not delicate enough– not lady-like enough. She’s too rough and HARD-looking. Her acting is far from refined, for lack of a better word.
I may be wrong, but as I said to su0000, Mia clocked Lola and everyone will assume it was Summer.❤️

GramS
Guest
GramS

It was Mia and Kyle saved Lola who is now unconscious in the hospital. I can’t stand Mia and I would choose Summer over her any day to be the typical soap beotch. She actually makes me laugh anytime she is on screen. I’m a lifer watcher and Summer is that much needed second generation of the entitled femme fatale.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Hi, GramS,
I knew it was Mia from the instant she hit Lola over the head. And, I also knew Kyle would save her.
As I said, Mia will exit–fingers crossed. I’m with you….can’t stand Mia!!

Hi, Patty,
I know you will agree with me when I say how despicable Mia is.
Everyone thinks her tears are over Lola’s life and death situation….
While, all she cares about is being found out. This is one person who only cares about herself.
I hope Lola wakes up soon …..I want Mia to disappear….publicly arrested—-poetic justice in the making!!❤️

Patty

Yes, indeed.

Boy, do I ever agree with you! I liked Rey at first, but after Fri.show, it’s adios jerk! The way he took Sharon in, handcuffs and all, without a second thought, made me sick.
I am on the fence about Mia and Summer. They both have motives, one’s out for Abby and one for Lola. I can see Summer going to the pool house, to wait for Kyle, but what would Mia be doing there at the pool?
Am also glad Paul is coming back. Hopefully new writers will do him justice this time around.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Hey, Violet, I was taken aback by Rey, as well….just for once, I wanted him to divest himself of the tight-laced, goody-do-cop persona. How does he say he loves Sharon, then takes her in, without preamble? By the same token, he may let the women go after speaking to them individually. Once their stories match, he could say they are accessorries after the fact. I asked my mother….she said punishment varies in such circumstances. They could end up just paying fines. It would depend on the DA to take it to trial…..or the judge could serve as both judge and… Read more »

Christine should be upset with Phyllis or should I say the new writers who allowed Phyllis to get away with the hit and run incident. Right after that , Michelle left Young and the Restless for General Hospital. That would have been the ideal time to send Phyllis to prison .

Celia
Guest
Celia

Absolutely, Boop—-It’s a wonder Phyllis is not in jail. My point, exactly. Chris resents the fact that Phyllis is free after the hit and run. I don’t think her disdain will cloud her judgement….Christine is known to be neither vengeful nor an obstructionist of the law. Already we can see what a weasel Phyllis is—-she’s trying to make a deal; while the other women will not betray each other. Typical Phyllis persona to selfishly thumb her nose in disregard to rest of the world. Gina Tognoni never took root with me in this role—-regardless of her Emmy. No one can… Read more »

Lol good one Celia, Mia is very annoying and the actress is terrible. My dog can act way better than her lol. Rey needs to go too. Keep Lola, she has grown on me. Get rid of Christine, slash cricket, Phyllis needs to squash the bug lol. I hope Doug Davidson signs a contract, and give Paul a decent storyline. Also please bring back Tricia Cast as Nina Webster, I miss her, the lady is a wonderful actress. Celia have a good day, my friend.

Hi, Claudio, So good to “see” you here…. Oh, yeah!! Our beloved Mia!! There’s acting and then there’s obnoxious……In the far recesses of my mind, I see her as a Neanderthal woman married to Grog the caveman, except that Rey is no caveman. I may not like him, but he is civilized. And, as such, how could either brothers be attracted to a banshee/Succubus? I can sort of see Arturo with her—he strikes me as boorish, but Rey is refined, showing self-control–cool dude….is it a facade? I would love to see Tricia return as Nina—-perhaps, she can soften Chris, besties,… Read more »

She is a troublemaker and that has been sorely missing from Y & R and all the BORING, drawn-out forever storylines to nowhere, same characters over and over and over and over! Mia has completely drawn you in. It’s been a LONG time since we’ve had a new and a TRUE love-to-hate character. I’m enjoying her unpredictable role. The zings between her and Abby are CLASSIC soap opera and… Read more »

Lauren? I have never said I hated Mia. I hate no one. I do not like her. I can’t stand her. Can’t wait until she’s gone. There are plenty of other characters who should be back.
I consider all these new characters as a “test drive”, to see who and what works for “ye gods”, albeit, I do believe in new charecters, as well….it is only my opinion. Makes no difference—I’m sure the writers do not listen to me. LOL.

Hi Claudio!!!!! A few things…

1. I (also) cannot stand Mia…BEYOND BLECH!!!!!!!!!!
2. You and I are in TOTAL AGREEMENT about Rey!!!!! He is such a CRAPPY COP!!!!!
3. I never liked Christine/Cricket. To me, she is such A HUMORLESS SOURBALL!!!!!
4. I think that Phyllis should run over Christine/Cricket again…ULTIMATE SPLAT!!!!! My 2-year-old black cat Sheena can act circles around that humorless blonde Christine/Cricket…lol.
5. Most of all…Y-E-S…Tricia Cast/Nina Webster needs to come back to Y&R…ASAP!!!!!!!!!! Oh…and Nina has always been my ALL-TIME FAVORITE Y&R character…YEAH!!!!!!!!!!

It looks like Y&R is getting back on track. The move to diminish Paul’s role on the show never made sense to me, because he and Rey could have easily been working on the J.T. murder investigation together. There was no reason to take Paul off the canvas, the storyline didn’t call for it, and he has well-established connections to all the major players in the murder mystery. I’m very happy that Josh & Tony are correcting this mistake, and that Doug will be back on screen soon. Also, I think that part of the reason so many fans dislike… Read more »

Yes! And how this all went down was not only disrespectful and mean to Davidson, it was was mean and disrespectful to longtime Y&R viewers. Insult to injury? No one ever even mentioned Paul’s name. No one asked,”Where’s Paul?” Suddenly this new guy named Rey is acting like the police chief and no one talks about it!! It’s as if Mal Young were gaslighting the viewers. It’s been especially maddening because of this absurd JT murder mystery which would normally have Paul Williams all over it. I do hope the new regime transitions Paul back into the Y&R setting and… Read more »

Glad he is back and the producers are correcting the error of the last regime. It wasn’t just they wrote out the character Paul, but how they treated Doug Davidson to do it— and they didn’t even bother to explain where the character went– how rude. Doug winning the Emmy a few years back proves he has the acting chops if given the right material– here’s hoping Josh, will use that goldmine of talent

I have been wishing hoping and praying for Paul to come back. I took a Y/R online survey about the show recently. Quite extensive. I feel the show as been changing for the better recently. I believe Y&R fans are very loyal to the actors in the show. Very loyal. Did anyone else feel that survey helped? Please respond if you can. Thank you! Welcome back Paul. And if JT is also coming back to stay, thank you to the writers.

The whole JT thing was so unfathomable I found it difficult to watch. Hopefully the writers hurry up and conclude things. Just read below JT is filming again. On the very positive side, yes, Paul’s return is anxiously awaited. For me the writers never seemed to find a solid storyline for him as a cop. It got so stale to see him, again and again, putting his friends in jail. Perhaps Davidson’s value to Y&R is now more recognizable and his role will become more substantial.

Hey, Tani, There has never been a time where you and I did not agree……enough with the JT story, is right!! Let’s start a new one for him, if he stays. I am probably the strongest critic of Keri and Jack as a couple. He’s too old, and looks it…. As far as Keri, not only is she too young ( forty years, I think), but also, she has the blandest personality. She has this superior air about her—coming off as this level-headed, old granny. That’s the point: she is neither clever, nor sagacious. If she were, she’d not be… Read more »

The soapy Filthy Rich has been short-lived.  News tonight has that the series featuring Sex and the City favorite, Kim Cattrall and former Guiding Light star, Aubrey Dollar (Ex-Marina) has been canceled by Fox in its first season.
