Jason Canela Announces He Is Exiting The Young and the Restless

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

While currently involved on-screen in romantic trouble between Abby (Melissa Ordway) and Mia (Noemi Gonzalez),  Jason Canela (Arturo) took to social media Monday morning to share the news that he is departing the CNS Daytime drama series.

In his post, Canela says: “I feel blessed to have been a part of something so special! I appreciate each and every single person that makes up part of the family! Our makeup team, our crew, our security! Without them there is nothing  The team behind the camera is what makes it all worth it.”

This came on top of his Jason’s post which expressed: “When I signed my 1 year contract with Y&R I was excited because for the first time in 3 years living in this city I was able to call a studio like ‘Television City’ home.  Add to that the incredible people I’ve had the pleasure of working with to create genuine relationships with … like Peter Bergman,Melissa Ordway, Jordi Vilasuso, Sasha Calle and Noemi Gonzalez  just to name a few. (Sorry guys, but Peter is my favorite).  I feel blessed to have been part of something so special like The Young and the Restless family.  It’s time to turn the page and see what beautiful stories I am blessed enough to be part of next.  I want to send all my love and positive vibes to the Y&R fans who have been so welcoming since day 1! Appreciate the love and no worries, The Rosales family will still be cooking up some drama in Genoa City, so keeping looking out for them, and showing them all the love they deserve.”

I liked him and his character and was hoping for more story. I suspect, with the new regime at Y&R, he won’t be alone in the unemployment line.

What is going on with the soaps lately people just coming and going at a time when the story line is good and unresolved I don’t know.

He signed a one-year contract, which means that he was only on the show for a year?? It feels to me like the Rosales family has been on the show for EONS, which may be due to their constant presence on every episode and my disliking of the entire family.

It doesn’t say who made the decision. Did the actor decide to move on, or did the show opt not to renew his contract? Either way, I hope this is the beginning of the entire Rosales clan leaving the show.

I wish the actor success —- in another role on another show.

If you read the article above the comments, you will see his photo, and his reasons for leaving on his own. He was not fired.

Don’t know why they had to ruin everything with an affair with Mia. He changed so much with Abby but that woman just never seems to have good luck. He’s a good actor and was good to see a Latino family grow (minus Mia) and hope that YnR keeps the diversity going. Best wishes to him for great success in the near future.

Momo

Yes, him sleeping with Mia seems out of left field. I guess they had to find a way to get him to leave.

Harry

Momma Mia! I hate Mia! If Arturo must leave, can he take her and her make-up suitcase with him? Oh, and Summer can take a hike too!

Fanny

Hats off to you HARRY‼️

You know, I wouldn’t say that those two sleeping together was out of left field. That’s all they spoke of from the time they ascended on GC. First Rey telling about his wife and brother and than, every time Mia and Arturo were together, she’d eat him up with her eyes, and he couldn’t look away. Mia was married to Rey, but she wanted Arturo too, which made it so disgusting. Even Rey, once he had feelings for Sharon, which he chose to deny, he still stayed with Mia, instead of sending her ass packing, tried to make the marriage work, knowing what a piece of work she really was. Now she gets to go free for what she did to Lola. If anyone needs to be in jail, it’s her.

I wonder if the role will be recast? I’m not sure how to feel about this since I know there have been alot of resentments against the Rosales family. They aren’t Newmans or Abbotts so to me, I see them as just OK.

Momo
Momo

I don’t mind them too much; I just don’t need to see them on the show every day, which they were. Integrate them slowly. Don’t hit us over the head with them to the detriment of others (Neil, Paul, Dina, etc.).

Lorne

the bunch of them were working for peanuts compared to the rest of the original cast. the whole story line was around them so Y&R could save a bundle. Abby cannot keep a partner ’cause she cannot do a bedroom scene. never seen such a good looking girl fumble up a bedroom scene as bad as her

Bart
Bart

So long – you and your character were neither necessary nor relevant to the GC canvas.

Hopefully the rest of your ill-conceived TV family will follow suit.

Damien
Damien

Your comment is the unnecessary one.
He and Abby made a beautiful couple.
The Rosales family is revelant because as you can see in society there are people made up of all economic classes
I hope Rey, Mia and Lola stay. Genoa city characters cant sleep within just two families and become incestual.

margherita

I agree 100%! Think of the Rearden Family on Guiding Light. As well as the Santos Family. Or the Snyders on As The World Turns. The Newmans and Abbotts have so much freaking money. We need there to be real life scenarios that are relatable extended into the Genoa City world that will balance out the economic status of the Y and R characters/families as well as the cultural diversity of 2019 that is so important. The mistake was that Mal Young brought them all in way too quickly so that we couldn’t connect with their integration while pushing out our fan favorites. And with the Winters Family losing Neil (and Lily and Hilary), I just don’t know… Seems that Ana and Devon are going to carry them on, one way or another.

Also, I’m glad that they are correcting the direction of the character of JT. That was a ridiculous storyline for someone that we loved so such a long time. Domestic Violence is a very important issue, and Amelia and Thad being intimately connected in real life allowed for them to play these roles with complete trust, but the direction that story with the 4 women “killing” him and all of the following months of storyline that MYtook was soooo wrong. It’s a real-life situation for many, many women (myself included), but to take JT who we have loved for decades into this direction was really tough. But I get that Amelia and Thad trusted each other 100% in order to take it there.

Bart
Bart

Your lame rebuttal is unnecessary – you can love the ill-conceived Rosales family all you want – hell, sleep with them for all I care!!!

I’m not in the minority re them – swing and a miss, thanks for playing Damien!

Momo
Momo

So it was his choice? I guess that’s why they had Arturo sleep with Mia.

Abby sure can pick ’em.

Bye!!!! That’s what happens when you get on Twitter and our nasty and self serving !! You were shown the door!

Yes, do be careful, Kay – you don’t want to upset Damien and his infatuation!!!

Violet Lemm

Do you really even know who you are talking about? Nasty and self serving? That would have to be just about the whole cast.

Celia
Celia

Hey, Violet,
True, that….no one is “pristine” on soaps….but, I think Kay may be referring to the character, not the actor. I don’t know—I have neither a Twitter nor Facebook account.
Mia, certainly brought the character down a few pegs—I detest cheaters. I, myself, never took to Arturo…..I love Lola and Rey is sort of growing on me, now that he’s being honest with himsef.
I must wonder if he and Sharon will get anywhere romantically.
Her past with Nick will always be looming between them; both physically and emotionally……as usual.
Oh, and…I get weird vibes coming from Ana’s ‘father” and “cousin”… are they on the up ‘n up? Devon’s money must look pretty golden, right now….
I think this is exactly what they were planning. Is Ana in on it?

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

Celia,
Kay’s comment just ruffled this old hen’s feathers. From what I could make of it, it was meant towards J.C, not Arturo. I think that his character was a little full of himself, swooping in to romance Nicki, than Abby, than Mia, of whom he’d already cheated on with once before. He acted like he was God’s gift to women. I would like to see him and Mia leave town, but if by chance she really is pregnant, that will raise the question of who the father is. Rey hasn’t told Sharon this news yet, so that may be a deciding factor to their romance.
As far as Devon and Ana. I am in the minority I think, that likes Devon, so I am hoping that his sister Ana would not be involved with a scam of any kind, put in to motion by her own cousin and father. We know the father is authentic, because Devon knew of him as a singer from years ago. It would be the perfect scam, if it wasn’t for his sister being involved. It would make for a good SL either way, as I’ve heard this gal from GH might be a love interest for Devon.
Going back over what I wrote, I guess just because this man is Ana’s dad, doesn’t mean he isn’t about going after Devon’s money. My dear, you may be on to something here.

Celia
Celia

You’re right, Miss Violet…..I had forgotten about Arturo and Nikki……which reenforces my point that Abby should have been ‘en garde’. LOL.
Most importanlty, Arturo’s behavior left much to be desired. Too bad for Abby….I wonder if she has learned anything this time around.
When I first heard Brytni was coming to Y&R, I thought the same thing. A girl for Devon, or a new Lily.
I am not saying Ana’s father is an imposter exactly….but, he could be trying to take advantage of Devon…..wants a piece of his “cake”?
I hope I am wrong…..but, why introduce them if there were no underlying misdeeds? We shall see.
I like Ana; so, I hope she’s not a schemer.
She is not only gorgeous, but also seems to really care for Devon.

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

Celia,
O.k, you put the idea into my head about Ana’s father and cousin, so I will be watching those two more intently. Another possibility is maybe this cousin, I can’t remember her character name, will become interested in Nate, both doctors, who lives right across the hall, might even get to work with him at the hospital. Oh my, all kinds of possibilities. I was hoping that Ana’s dad might fill the space that Neil has left, once they address his death in May. Wonder if Lily will return, minus Cain, I hope. Sure haven’t missed him lately. I jinxed it! Made Cain appear today.

I wondered if the new producing/writing team would dismantle Mal Young’s new family and, it seems that may be the case, yes? I am hoping for some stabilizing in Genoa City, but I was not opposed to integration of a new family. The Rosales clan just seemed not to win our hearts before falling into deep drama. Will Arturo leave with Mia? If Paul fires Rey from the police department, what is left for him? Lola? Seems Kyle may just fall in love with Summer after all. I do not like to see actors lose opportunities.

Harry
Harry

Yes, I think you’re right. It’s not that I dislike the Rosales family, (okay, I hate Mia with the heat of a thousand suns but I guess I am supposed to hate her )it’s that they were rapidly and awkwardly introduced. And Mal Young was doing something really odd, creepy and out-of-character with Victor and Nikki agreeing to an open marriage. Our first impression of young Arturo is with him hooking up with Mrs. Newman hours after he first met her. Through no fault of the actor’s, he didn’t make a good first impression, and that can be a hard factor to overcome for soap characters.

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

Hey Harry
Just wondering, if you watch DOOL too, who do you think is worse, Mia or Gabi. Right now I am hating both of them, Claire too, but she’s leaving, and then there was two!

Joan

There were only 2, just 2, hot sexy guys with Y&R, now only Kyle..

I’m not happy about Arturo not being on the screen, but it is what it is..

I’m sure he’ll be seen in other shows, and- good for Jason Canela to get out and moving on before it’s too late.

Damien
Damien

Agree 100%
The show needs more good looking young people and new families to keep from being old and incestual

robert

this is not a big loss to the show

Joe

The character was never added to the opening credits (nor anyone in his tv family)…I don’t see any of them being long term, unless the new head writer has different plans in mind. New EP & HW normally cut loose characters they don’t need.

Damien
Damien

This really sucks
I was thoroughly enjoying the Rosales siblings dynamics . It was a breath of fresh air. Was hoping the Abby / Arturo/Mia/Rey affairs would continue, especially the sexual tension between ‘Arturrrro’ and Mia. Also thought Abby finally found her true love with Arturo.
I know fans didnt want a new fam taking time away from faves however for the show to continue younger new families have to be introduced, the vets arent getting any younger.
Too bad , Jason was rugged , good looking had good chemistry with the ladies and the character was different than other well to do genoa city residents
Good luck to Jason

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

OMG
I think I liked Arturo and sister Loala, as he said it the best. Rather Mia, and Rey were leaving. Jason was probably as sick of his part as we were. First his gig with Nicki, and than being pulled into Mia’s black web. I don’t know whether I see her as a spider or a vulture.’ Either way she’s disgusting. Arturo was his own worst enemy, poor guy, didn’t stand a chance. Adious, and good luck.

Iakovos
Iakovos

I do not care for the Mia character either. The classic bad girl who is misunderstood/social climbing but doing it all wrong is a classic soap trope (Carly ATWT) but we did not see any good in Mia from the start. She just hit the ground running. I believe characters have to earn their love or hate and respect from viewers. That is the writers’ job. If we could understand Mia better, I think she would gain more sympathy and be the girl we love to hate. Sadly, not going that way.

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

I too watched ATWT, and yes, once we were able to understand why Carly was the way she was, her childhood, etc., we were also able to understand her destructive behaviors better.
This Mia, just came in like gangbusters, in your face, everything all about her, I can’t stand her and never will. Maybe she will go with Arturo, but I can’t stand Sharon and Rey together either.

Harry
Harry

Violet, I couldn’t agree with you more. I hate the way Mia trots around holding her little arms folded up against her body–she reminds me of Tyrannosaurus Rex in a cocktail dress, barging through coffee houses, restaurants, apartments, and mansions looking for something or someone to grab.

Violet Lemm

I thought he was really good in his role with Abby. I love the Rosales family and the added diversity they brought to GC. Soaps must reflect today in cities in Canada and the USA. Very very disappointed and the slightly not so slightly racist comments these actors have had to put up with on pages such as this absolutely disgust me but it reaffirms my opinion of a good many Americans who yell free speech when it is obviously hate speech.

It may have been his decision to leave. He is a young guy who wants to spread his wings. I think the Rosales family would have been accepted, if Mal Young didn’t place them front and center so quickly. Also, Mal sectioned them off. Yes, Lola had Mariah and Tessa, but where were the friends for Mia, Rey and Arturo? They could still work, but blend them into GC and don’t hate me, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there is a recast for Mia, if she is written out.

Now I suddenly LOVE Abby! She is hilarious. The actress who plays her is not just drop gorgeous, she has this inherent comedic talent. No, Arturo, don’t take Abby with you. However, feel free to take your sister-in-law with you and her rolling suitcase full of cheap make-up samples. Bye, Felicia! Bye Mama Mia! Don’t let the door hit you!

I never did like his character. Him and Abby were not a good match.
I think they should bring Scott back, him and Abby have unfinished business.

That CLOWN Arturo is leaving…Y-A-Y!!!!! Also, show his KEYSTONE KOP brother Rey the door and I’ll be even happier…lol. Oh…and BTW, I LOVED yesterday’s episode (3/26) of Y&R…especially where Paul chewed out Rey and then FIRED him. About damn time.

Welcome back Doug Davidson/Chief Paul Williams. You have been truly missed.

Later.

Harry

Jay you crack me up! Remember when you had a long term substitute teacher? At first you were all happy and thought you could just slack but after a while you saw the class falling apart. Then the teacher comes back and order is restored. That’s how it feels to have Paul back.

Networks To Preempt Daytime Programming For Donald Trump Impeachment Hearing Coverage

Just as your favorite soaps are kicking into high gear for November sweeps next week, comes the news that due to the House public impeachment hearings on President Donald Trump, daytime programming will endure several pre-mptions starting with the first two on Wednesday November 13th and Friday, November 15th.

CBS was the first network to announce their plans for their extensive coverage, and according to the Washington Post all other networks have followed suit.  By this move by the networks it gives the hearing some extra weight and exposure to the American voters and viewing audience.

So far, leading network coverage for CBS will be reportedly anchored by Norah O’Donnell and for ABC George Stephanopoulos.

On Wednesday, the hearings begin at 10am EST, the second is scheduled for Friday beginning at 11am EST.

William Taylor, the U.S. diplomat in the Ukraine, is scheduled to testify Wednesday and on Friday Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, is scheduled to testify.

The networks are expecting big numbers for covering the hearings, as they have in the past for impeachment proceedings and hearings.

No word yet how the soaps plan for you to see the episodes that don’t air at their regularly scheduled times, or if it shifts your soap viewing schedule by several days.
