Hunter King Returns To Y&R On Contract

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

It’s going to be a long hot summer when Hunter King reprises her role of Summer Newman on CBS’ The Young and the Restless.

 The actress, whose primetime comedy series Life in Pieces has been renewed by CBS, is now set for double duty. She will return to her daytime beginnings when she first airs on Monday, June 4th. The news was first reported by TV line. King is a two-time Daytime Emmy winner.

When we last saw King in 2016, the character of Summer took a break from her college studies to travel the world. When she returns, she will waste no time digging in her heels and getting into all sorts of trouble. What will happen when her mother Phyllis, played by Gina Tognoni, finds out Summer is back in Genoa City? Stay tuned.

So, are you excited to hear that King is on her way back to Y&R? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.

Not really, happy that Summer character coming back.Never saw a story that showed her talent. But LOVE Hunter on #LifeinPieces

i like Hunter but don’t care for the character of Summer. i hope she’s written better this time

Are you kidding me?!?!?!?!?! To me, Y&R was SO MUCH BETTER without her!!!!! A VERY, VERY DUMB MOVE, Y&R!!!!!

I couldn’t agree with you more jaybird. We are probably going to have to gear up for a Kyle SummeTessa triangle, with poor Mariah watching from the sidelines. Time will tell I guess. I don’t know which will be worse, watching the three of them or watching Devon and Hillary giving each other gaga looks about the baby that isn’t even formed yet. Take care

Celia

Oh, my goodness, Soapqueenforever….your comment gave me pause. What you say is sooo very possible and probable.
Can you imagine if Jack is, indeed, Victor’s son ( as I have suspected and intimated for a while) ?
What if they end up in bed? They would, actually, be first cousins? Yuck…..nah, I doubt the PTB would go there, would they?
I never took to Summer….but, love the actress.
Hunter slimmed down….she looks beautiful !!
As far as Devon and Hilary….she’s is not the problem. I like her. She deserves the shiniest accolades.
The problem is Devon and this insipid storyline. You are sooooo right, my friend.
I suspect ( for a while now and said so from the onset) that Mishael is pregnant in real life. I noticed a little bump.
So, her pregnancy ( I could be very, very wrong) needed to be written in? Maybe?
Also, Tessa has resurfaced….I know she never left, but , at least, she was securely ensconced in the background.
….Mariah deserves better.

Wondering if Jack and Victor are half brothers.

Jack will have a man crush on Victor lmao.

Hi Celia

Finally figured out this new website! Not sure I like it. But you’re right– Tessa, Mariah and Summer: hmm. Kyle will be thrown to the wolves, which he deserves! The Devon/Hillary thing is still awful– rather see Hillary with Kyle: dynamic troublemakers.

However, Hillary looked spectacular in that pink prom dress!

Celia
Celia

I think Mishael is one of the most beautiful people on soaps…..and, I don’t just mean physically ( she’s gorgeous), but simply her nonchalant air is very magnetic. She has this unidentifiable, lucent aura about her. Not too many people can own that natural, innate trait.
What arrests the viewer, about Hilary, is that amidst her devil-may-care, outward intractable countenance; she’s a vulnerable, little bird……the most contradictory personality “in motion”. LOL……love her. Devon is not man enough for her.
A woman should be allowed to do, to feel as she may….no restraints…..cultivate her spirit, not cage it. It takes a true man, in every sense of the word, to grace a woman in that respect.
To me, Ron, the Neanderthal type, does not a man make, nor does he prove his mettle.
Devon is no such caveman, I know…..but, criticizing Hilary, which he has done, in the past, can dent the soul, heart and mind, just as negatively, as a blow to the body.

Harry
Harry

Oh nicely done, Celia. You know who I would like to see Hillary with? Billy Miller’s Billy Abbott. Oh think of the possibilities, the potential.

Celia
Celia

Yes!!!! Good one, Harry….if only. Billy Miller….That’s a man….well, after my husband, of course. LOL.
I don’t think I’m the only Mishael/Hilary fan who feels Devon is not right for her. He can’t seem to make up his mind….and the writers are using him as one of Geppetto’s puppets. Wooden and boyish.

Claudio

Yes Celia, Hillary looked gorgeous in that Pink prom dress. A true Goddess.

Lol Hunter King is a terrific actress, she has 2 daytime Emmys on her resume.

I am not a fan of the Summer character. Quite the opposite and that would be I cannot tolerate Summer.
Nonetheless; IF Summer has grown up and is given an actual meaning for her existence, I’ll give her a chance to wow me .

I’m upchucking at the site of Sharon and Nick- I can’t take any more of them yet to add Summer.

So, that’s all I’ve got 🙂

Soaphound
Soaphound

Yeah, su000, I hear it. Hmmm, Sharon and Nick reconcile while she harbors yet another BIG SECRET that he can self-righteously use as an excuse to leave and/or cheat on her. And Summer? Just another reason to change the remote batteries…gotta have FF readily available.

Celia
Celia

I had always hoped, Soaphound, that when Sharon and Nick came together again, it would be with a clear heart, mind and soul.
They belong together. They were the young lovers of my innocent tween years. ….know what I mean?
Thus, this ‘scheme’ leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. I ask, why? Haven’t they had enough drama? All thanks to stupid Phyllis and her lack of knowledge for the law…well, the writers, actually. They think this stuff could be glossed over and we’ll accept it without question. Hmmm.
Summer—-another WHY???? Where will she fit in?
Did she get along with Sharon? I forgot—bad memory. LOL.

Alan
Alan

At this point, Nick taking Sharon back does nothing but make him look incredibly stupid. She’s slept with his father, both his half-brothers, his stepfather, and two of his brother-in-laws in addition to burning down his family’s ranch, tampering with Dumber’s paternity results, allowing her children to suffer thinking she was dead when she was really in New Mexico avoiding jail time, keeping Christian from him, and forgave Adam for letting them think Fake was dead when he had actually given her to Ashley. I know it’s a soap but Nick forgiving all of that is just too much…

Celia
Celia

Not too happy about Summer coming back to roost??…..especially if this is another bout with spoiled brat rich girl. Didn’t we go through this with Abby? Who will it be next? Faith? What a vicious circle.
Victoria seems to have been the only girl who never really got herself into trouble.
Such a vicious circle…..
The writers are revisiting the same old,same old??

Harry
Harry

Maybe it will be better this time around, Celia? I once detested Abby and now I really like her. I have a hunch they will pair Summer with Kyle but would really like her paired up with Ravi.

Celia
Celia

I guess, Harry….you’re right; I did not like Abby, now I do.
Let’s all give Summer the benefit of the doubt.
Yes, there could be a story there with Kyle….weren’t they involved before? I believe that was when there were doubts about her paternity, so they broke up?
I hope I’m not confusing this with another storyline….. plots intersect …all of them, from soap to soap, Harry.
Also, as I was saying to soapqueenforever, what if Victor is Jack’s son?!?!

Ron
Ron

Agree– Abby is easy to like… but this garbage with the construction worker– what gives? WHY this storyline? He’s awful.

Celia
Celia

Hi, Ron,
I made a complete about face where Arturo is concerned. I thoughe was such a hunk…..No more….after seeing him day after day…..you are right, he’s awful……I can’t put a name to him….uninspirational?
He used Nikki who WANTED to be used….both disgusting.
Yet, I know he ‘took’ to Abby since the first day he laid eyes on her. The writers need to rethink this…..what’s up with his hair?
Arturo lacks the IT factor….too pedestrian.
Funny how Nikki just happens to walk by and catch the nouveau lovers making out.
Nikki looked put-out. Is she for real? What exactly did she expect from a young guy? Complete and utter devotion forevermore?
I know, I talk too much…..

jaybird369

Celia…

1. To me, watching that Arturo dude is like watching that Zack dirtbag (Remember him???) all over again. Beyond yuck.
2. Abby is such an idiot when it comes to men.
3. As for Nikki, she is acting like such a jealous, lust crazed and needy NITWIT!!!!! Washed-up lush.

Have a good one, my friend.

Harry
Harry

Ha ha ha! Jaybird, every time I see Nikki, she is skulking around the bushes spying on Arturo and Abby–not a flattering look for Mrs Newman. The writing being afforded to Nikki has been rather odd with no build up. And don’t get me started on the idiocy of the JT murder story line.

Karen Ross
Karen Ross

I agree with you totally. The rich girl and the construction worker, Nikki and the construction worker, yeah that believable?? I don’t care for him. I think bring back Scott for Abby that could have went somewhere.

Steve

I want Ravi, to be gay. Have an affair with Kyle.

Lisa

Where is Ravi ? They brought him back for the flash drive stuff and poof he’s nowhere to be found.Give him some work, a love interest…something.

Soaphound
Soaphound

Oh Celia,say it ain’t so! I can’t bear the actress (though she is competent) and the character was always in some kind of bubbleheaded trouble. We have this repulsive new Kyle already…haven’t we suffered enough?

Scot
Scot

Victoria not getting into trouble? She was the brattiest and most rebellious of them all: teenage bride of Ryan McNeal’s; refusal to attend college because she was a Newman, which hilariously got her assigned to the mailroom, where she toyed with the emotions of lovesick Brandon while she plotted to break up Ryan and Nina; seducing her mother’s love interest, Cole Howard, knowing very well that Nikki was smitten with Cole; posing nude for an adult magazine, causing Victor to have to buy every copy printed, etc. etc. etc. Summer is a fine legacy character. It’s a soap. Enjoy the ride.

Celia
Celia

Thank you for the backstory, Scot. I really started getting into Y&R when I was about twelve or so…..around the time Nick and Sharon started dating, albeit I watched with my grandmother, as a toddler. It’s pretty foggy.
I don’t really remember much. However, I thought Victoria was married to Cole and Nikki had an affair with her son-in-law. I guess I’m wrong?
Again, thank you for telling me…..I really thought Victoria was the ‘sedate’ one. LOL. You do paint the perfect picture of the rebellious, poor, little, rich-girl brat.

Alan
Alan

Cole was a ranch hand (and the son of Victor’s former secretary Eve Howard) who Nikki slept with after Victor was thought killed in a car accident (he was really in Kansas falling in love with Hope). Victoria told Cole she loved him and they were married but then Victor returned after reading of the marriage in the paper and told them they were half-siblings so they got a divorce and then later found out that Cole was not Victor’s son after all so they got remarried. They had a baby daughter who died soon after birth and then Cole had an affair with Ashley while Victoria was out of town. They later divorced and he married Ashley but that marriage ended when Ashley wanted to have children and Cole didn’t.

We need Adam back! He can show Kyle how to play the disgruntled, angry son who hates his father with style!! At least with Adam, we got why he hated Dad, but with Kyle, we don’t get it. Hell, it doesn’t even seem like Kyle gets why he hates his father.

I am lukewarm on Ms. King and Summer Newman. I was not pleased with the SORAS years back and the stories regarding Summer were not exciting. Summer went through that silly paternity question tale, currently recycled among the 50+ set in Genoa City. I know last year’s human trafficking story and teen tales centered on Reed and the suddenly grown twins fizzled. Maybe Summer and her young friends/relatives can generate some excitement this turn.

dmr

UGH! Summer is one of the most annoying characters-along with Abby!

Harry
Harry

Summer’s coming back for Summer? Well, I kind of like her. Her scenes with Mariah were funny and they play off each other really well. I almost derrived the the feeling that those two are friends in real life. I say pair her up with Ravi–please, please, please! I beg the soap gods not to pair her up with that Forever 21 male model, Kyle. But I bet you they WILL pair Summer up with Kyle, a marriage made in hell. Also, Mommy Phyllis and Bad Billy are going to need to move out of Summer’s apartment. Remember, Victor Newman bought that apartment for Summer, not for those two squatters. I say to Summer’s critics– give her a chance, maybe she’s grown up some and therefore, will grow on you. I know, I used to be one of her biggest critics. Speaking of Billy and Phyllis, how I detest those two! Phyllis is draped over Billy like a Lady Macbeth overcoat as he sits at the helm of Jabot. It’s not enough that these two Vulgarians had a torrid, seamy affair with each other behind Jack’s back, now they are scheming together to make Billy the permanent CEO. How many times can Billy and Phyllis screw over Jack? Jack has been screwed over so many times by Phyllis and yet he never got screwed, so to speak. And Ashely is no prize as a sister either. When you factor in Kyle, and his betrayal of Jack, you have to ask yourself, “Y&R, why do you forsake Jack so?” I can only hope that Ashely went insane again, and had those DNA tests tampered with again and Jack really is John Abbott’s first born son.

Replying to self–Self, there is some good news and some bad news about Fairman’s new site. Good news? You can click a negative or positive reaction to someone’s comment. Bad news? There’s no edit feature and I cannot correct my mistakes such as my misspelling of derive above.

HaHaHa…..would you believe, Harry, that I had not noticed the negative/positive clicky-thingy until you brought it to the fore?

su000

hi Harry..
I disagree 🙂
the click a negative or positive; the reaction to someone’s comment can cause hurt feeling or some such thing if a person’s posts get a thumb down and might even discourage one from posting..

even facebook wouldn’t go there..
(( desperately need an edit button, I don’t want to look stupid ahaaa!

Harry
Harry

HA! SUOO–I thought of that and almost toyed with the idea of giving you a negative score as a joke. But then I thought better of it. I hope folks give me a negative score because I will have so much fun screaming,”HEY, who gave me a negative score? Speak now, or forever hold your peace!!” The very idea just cracks me up and now that I have said so, I look forward to numerous negative signs on every post I write. Now Celia, I liked what you wrote and therefore, gave you a plus sign. Sometimes I just want to tell folks I like what they posted without writing a response which rivals “War and Peace” as far as length is concerned.

Thank you, sir Harry!!

No, Mary–sorry for the confusion. No edit button on the old site either. I just need to slow the heck down before I post. My mistakes are giving me wrinkles from wincing so much.

Scot

Did you watch the show in the 80’s? Jack was a cad. He’s softened over the years. Let’s not forget that Jack used his marriage to virtuous Patty only for John to take him seriously enough to let Jack run Jabot. He slept with Diane on his wedding day to Patty! He’s the one who pushed Patty over the edge. He’s also the same man who had an affair with Jill when she was married to John the first time. He’s also the same Jack who blackmailed Ashley when he learned that Brent Davis was her biological father. Ashley had her first breakdown because of that drama. There’s more, much more. Jack is on the short end of the stick because of karma. That’s why people who don’t know the show’s history are oversympathetic to an unsympathetic character. Kyle as written now is very much like Jacky was in the 80’s. I think it would be hilarious if Brent were Jack’s father and if Ashley were John’s. They didn’t have the same paternity tests back in the day, unless I’m mistaken. That would be a story come full circle because Jack would have to face the damage he’s caused for Ashley and for Tracy. Remember that deranged Patty came back to town to get Jack back, and Colleen was killed. I think it’s important to understand that Victor may be a sadistic and ruthless, controlling man; BUT Jack was once the villain of the show, and he did many many terrible deeds, and Victor hates him for many reasons.

Celia
Celia

Yes. That I knew, Scot…..my grandmother schooled me on Jack. She never liked him and it rubbed off on me. She told me all about Patty and the Williams’ history—-about “Jack and Diane”…. and John Cougar Meloncamp’s song playing while Jack was cheating on Patty while married to her..
I am not sympathetic towards Jack….he did a lot of terrible stuff. My grandmother watched since day one. I was born fourteen years later, LOL…. I thought I knew everthing there was to know, except for Victoria. I was so into Nick and Sharon and her mother Doris ( in a wheel chair), everyone else fell short.
I did not like Nikki much—-I lost count how many affairs she’s had—- and still at it, LOL.
I, also, know she had a sister who was a doctor?… can’t remember her name.
Y&R still is my favorite show…..

jaybird369
jaybird369

Celia…check it out: Nikki’s sister’s name is Casey Reed. And trust me…Casey has always been WAY MORE MATURE than Nikki…PERIOD!!!!!

Later, my friend.

Celia
Celia

Thank you, Jay….I don’t remember her, but my grandmother always remarks on how different the sisters were.
Nikki was a piece of work, I gathered.
I hope I am not affronting anyone….but, Victor and she exchanging mouth fluids made me gag. I just finished watching—after an exhausting loooog week-end.
Ciao, my friend.

Harry
Harry

Scot, you make good points but the death of Colleen, Traci’s daughter, was Victor’s fault, certainly not Jack’s. Victor sprung Patty from the high security mental asylum for the criminally insane so she could reek havoc in Jack’s life. Jack has evolved since the days he was ole Smiling Jack big time while Victor has remained the same darkly sinister and shadowy character.

Celia
Celia

True, Harry….I do follow your sagacious writing…..but, in a way, Scot has a point. Jack drove Patty batty. He was a real lascivious mother ________. He acted like an animal—well, worse, since animals ‘kill’ and plunder ( jack plundered Patty’s body and killed her spirit) for food, and attack for self-preservation. What is a human’s excuse—kill and massacre people for sport?
This is why I think Dina did the hanky-panky with Victor—-the issue from that affair is Victor’s replica: Jack.
Yes, you are right; Victor did unleash Patty on the world, making Colleen a victim and a fatality. But, Jack put her there.
Two peas in a malignant pod.

Harry
Harry

Celia, it is so rare now days where I can make the following statement–Bad Jack, as played by Terry Lester, is before my time. Oh sure, as a latch key kid I saw ole smiling Jack committing some devilish crime. He really was a cad. Even back then, Jack seemed to have a conscience, and paid dearly for his crimes. But by the time I came of age it was Peter Bergman’s Jack with whom I became acquainted. Maybe I am biased because I know for a fact that Peter Bergman is a dear sweet man. I think the actor interjects that goodness into his role as Jack. Sure, Jack of today is deeply conflicted and flawed but he always seems to be trying to err on the side of goodness. I am always on Jack’s side these days. Yes, that stupid blood Abbot clause was the karma which bit him but Ashely kind of pushed him into a corner at the time he utilized the clause which backed him into a corner. As I have said time and time again, with family like the Abbotts, who needs enemies? Traci is the only decent one in the lot of em.

Chaz
Chaz

Oh, goodie an annoying character and an annoying actress returning. One can only hope both have grown in their absence.

Off topic… but I was always under the impression that Tracy was the oldest Abbott child. She certainly has been the most mature. They need to put Beth Maitland on contract. It would have been a great story to have her oppose Billy as Jabot CEO (yes, I know she has never really been involved in the company but rather than just default to the male Abbott it would have added something to the story)

Celia
Celia

I’m pretty sure it’s Jack….he looks it. Then it’s Ashley; then Traci.
I like yourvidea of Traci being front-and-center, Chaz….but, at this point, we can’t be sure she’s an Abbott either.
Dina may still hold a bunch of secrets stashed somewhere in the recesses of her mind.
You know, a few weeks ago, Phyllis made a comment about Nick being Victoria’s older brother. According to my grandmother, and if I am not mistaken, Victoria is the eldest.

Worst Y&R news I’ve heard all week. I do not like the character or actress. A recast would’ve been a better option, since a new actress could’ve been more talented and able to show other sides of Summer. Hunter King is a one note actress.

Soaphound

Personally I’d rather skip Summer and go straight to Fall. We have enough spoiled rich girls in GC already.

Soaphound…good one…lol. And so TOTALLY TRUE!!!!!

Carolyn

No, do not want her back. Having Summer return is ok but not with the same actress. She is not a good actress and doesn’t fit well with the other actors. Hope if the character is important to the story they find someone else to play the part, otherwise don’t bother

Toscanti
Toscanti

This does not make me happy! I am really enjoying Y&R right now and there is no need to bring Summer back. Do not care for the character.

Mary SF
Mary SF

Frankly it is a missed opportunity to recast, the character has been off screen for 2 years and most of us have or would like to have forgotten Ms.King’s version of the character. It was the perfect time to update Summer to make her more hip- sorry showing my age, but that is what the daughter of Phyllis should be— a real fireball, and HK version wasn’t. And if they are revisiting the Summer/Kyle pairing–with this annoying new Kyle–it will be like nails on a chalkboard to watch

Harry
Harry

I actually would have preferred a recast too, Mary. As I have said many times before, would it not have been lovely to have a British actress as a recast? Viewers would believe that Summer had spent so much time in the UK that she returned with a British accent. Then Summer could be paired up with Ravi in an East meets West kind of romance. (Think EM Forester.) I just love the idea of it which is probably why it cannot happen.

Tani Sterling

First time seeing the new site. It’s sometimes difficult to separate the storylines from the actors, although not always.

For me I have seen too much DNA testing recently. I won’t find it pleasing if Jack is not John’s son. Yes he, indeed, was a scoundrel some time ago. However those unforgivable scenes when the writers kept Jack tied to a bed, tortured, and more abhorrent thing allows me to forgive a great deal of those past shenanigans. In fact, I recall a time when Terry Lester remained quite celibate and rather mundane for a significant period of time. However, I bow to Scot and others with their amazing recollections.

Summer–I don’t remember much, but am a bit bored right now with the crazy JT storyline. Should Jack be Victor’s son; far too much silly stuff going on at one time.

Don’t have the feel for how to write here. Best to all!

Helen
Helen

My money is on Jack and Victor being half brothers.

Celia
Celia

Hi, Helen,
How are you?? Hmmmm. That is such an interesting idea. Victor and Jack brothers!!!! Victor did know who his father was. I remember him on his death-bed ( George Pappard). It would have been such a twist to the plot had his father spat it out, at the time to clear his soul, per se.
It makes great sense for Albert to have had an affair with Dina. I like that premise even better than mine; that is, Jack as Victor’s son.

Celia

Sorry: that should read, George Kennedy, not Pappard.

Y&R continues to be a plot driven mess and the news of Summer’s return is anything but good news. There are no absolutely no stories for the actors already on this show so we bring on another character? In the place of real storytelling all we have this… ~ Devon planning a nursery. Where — the GCAC dining room or the Hamilton-Winters Group offices? Neither he nor Hilary have an apartment set that we’ve seen in months. For a couple the show seems so committed to pushing it is ridiculous that we never see them anywhere but work and the club dining room. ~ Nick and Sharon getting back together. Considering that Sharon has slept with Nick’s father, both his half-brothers Adam and Dylan, his step-father Jack, and his brother-in-laws Billy and Brad in addition to burning down the family ranch, letting her family think she was dead while she hid out in New Mexico with Sam the veterinarian, switching Summer’s DNA results, keeping Christian from him for months, and her decades long history of ignoring her wheelchair bound mother this does nothing but make family man Nick look like a big sexy doofus. ~ Abby 3.0 whining about being third in line for the job as Newman CEO and flirting with her stepmother’s sidepiece. Either recast the role with Bree Williamson (who I would totally buy as being the offspring of Victor and Ashley) or send the character back to France to run the Brash & Sassy offices there. ~ Charlie going to prom with a girl who’s made MAYBE a dozen appearances. ~ Speaking of Charlie, when Abby was interviewing Dina the camera was positioned in front of Abby and aimed squarely at Dina’s face, yet at the premiere of Dina’s “movie” there were camera angles from every side and close-ups of her wringing her hands. Do you really think we don’t notice this, Y&R? ~ Jack’s “paternity scare.” This is a bust because it’s pretty clear that it will be revealed that Jill slept with that guy in the diner back in the day when she was trying to get pregnant to hold onto John Abbott and Billy is not really John’s son. For a savvy businessman I can’t understand why Jack didn’t have tests run comparing both Billy and Tracy to his own DNA. (I also don’t understand why a recovering addict kept his old dealer’s number in his cellie either…) ~ Emmy Award winning Eileen Davidson reduced to showing Dina to her room and discussing Jack’s paternity with her boring daughter. Seriously? Eileen needs to go back to DAYS where her talents will be put front and center. ~ In addition to wasting Eileen Davidson’s talents, the show also keeps squandering Camryn Grimes’ talents by using Mariah as a coffee drinking lesbian Greek chorus who spends her time commenting on everyone else’s relationships. ~ Billy and Phyllis continuing to shack up with all the chemistry of peanut butter and mayonnaise. (And has Gina Tognoni’s Phyllis… Read more »

WOW, Alan, when you but it tat way….LOL.
Sharon has been around the block as many times as Nikki.
Sleeping with her btothers-in-law ( ex or otherwise) is one thing….sleeping with her ex father-in-law is another.
Yet, isn’t this the route every male and female character takes on soaps????

Summer returning is the BEST NEWS I’ve heard about the Show in a long time. Hunter is not only a very talented 2 time Emmy Award winner, I admire the way she stood up to that actor who was sexually harassing her a few years ago. ALL the Cast supported her in doing so. BRAVO Y&R. Bring on a Long HOT Summer!
