Judith Chapman Returning to The Young and the Restless

Photo: JPI

And now for some more mamma drama! Judith Chapman is set for another return to The Young and the Restless in her role as Gloria Fisher.

That means that we hopefully will see scenes between Chapman and her two on-screen sons, Greg Rikaart (Kevin) and Christian LeBlanc (Michael).

Soap Opera Digest broke the bit of casting news.

Chapman was last seen in the role in 2018 and then headed over to Days of our Lives to play Diana for awhile.

Judith took over the role of Gloria in 2005 replacing Knots Landing favorite, Joan Van Atk.

Glad to hear Judith will be back on our daytime screens? Comment below.

I wish they would bring Jeff along with her but I am happy that she will be in town to mix it up with Michael and Kevin. Y&R is in need of SOME kind of CPR! The show is flatlining!

Agree. B&B is on fire and can’t miss. Y&R is the opposite but I stay tuned in. Gloria will be welcomed back when she arrives in town.

HI Timmm- long time
Perhaps Gloria and Jack will hook-up..
He needs a side.. poor Jack-
he has gone a decade without sex LOL
And– Y&R has become very STINKO BLAH, what happened?

Hi Su000-long time, indeed! Jack needs a younger women who fans the flames and brings excitement! Not just sex, I mean maybe someone out to scheme him and disrupt the Abbott fortune. He and Gloria wouldnt be to interesting now because of all her backhanded behavior. Gloria and Ian Ward would be GOLD!

You may just be on to something! I hear that Kristan Alphonso/ Hope is coming to Genoa City. She might be the right one for Jack. At least she’s closer in age, especially after that young gal they paired him up with last.

Huh? I wonder who she will play? Maybe a recast of Lola’s mom? I liked Jack and her together.

Jack? A decade without sex? Um…Emily, Genevieve, Nikki, Kelly, Phyllis, Kerri….

For some people that’s a lifetime…not a decade!

Oh, SusieQ!!–you kill me!!!!! Is that all you think about ? Sex?? LOL—-I do agree. Jackie-boy must be climbing the walls. Ha!! I have a great idea—-why not bring back his son, Kemo? He must be in his 50’s by now—-but, TPTB can always ” rejuvenate ” him. I think Christopher Sean (Paul Narita, Sonny Kiriakis’ ex on DOOL) would be perfect!! Great actor —-and so hot!! At least, there would be some diversity—-go off the monotony of this beaten path — Suddenly, Amanda is a victim because she misses the sister she never knew. is this where we’re supposed… Read more »

Hi, T—-I so agree with you. I am having a hard time getting back into my favorite show ( Y&R)—there’s no meat on my plate. All the storylines are bland—no flavor, no drama, no passion, no anticipation.
So, I hope Judith, whom I love, brings back that spark and intrigue which the show has lost along the way, and desperately needs.

What do you think of Billy and Lilly? You know its inevitable! I dont mind. I hated her with Cain!

Celia
Guest
Celia

Yes, T—-I do like the idea of Lily and Billy as a couple. For the first time since Thompson joined the Y&R cast, I have finally come to accept nuBilly —he,belongs, per se.
T&T, LOL—Tognoni and Thompson never did it for me—-even their incessant amorous sessions didn’t grab me—-That relation ship sort of turned me off and made me gag—-her brother-in-law?? —same with Victoria. I am yet to get used to the interchangeble bed-partners on soaps.
But, the sexual tension is definitely tangible with him and Lily—–I do hope TPTB are biding their time with these two—-that’s part of the fun.

Celia
Guest

PS—hey, T—-I wanted to add that Thompson, as Billy is finally showing character—a strong side of it. Good or bad, I don’t take to screwups and wimps much. —-that’s what I saw in Billy.
Thompson managed to take Billy out of that phase and mold him into an adult. with purpose. It remains to be seen what he makes of Billy, the man.

Thats a good observation and I coulndt agree more. One that I am still hung up on though is Adam. I still like Michael Muhney better than any of the others. He just had that inner demon-like quality like Victor has. This current Adam, good actor, but I just dont believe he could take over Newman and be good at it.

Celia
Guest
Celia

I know exactly what you mean, T.—-nuAdam has turned into a drooling misfit with Chelsea as his mother. Grow up—- Why is he coddled? This storyline is convoluted. And, yes—-no one can walk in Muhney’s shoes in the role of Adam. As twisted as Adam was/is, the viewer couldn’t help but like him—-or at least, come to accept him—-just as it took me a long time to like Victor—- NuAdam is too young, I think—-It’s hard for me to regard him as a man, husband and father. Then, there’s Chelsea—I make it no secret that I vehemently dislike her— bad… Read more »

I’m so thrilled Judith is returning to Y&R, this is fantastic news. I find Y&R boring, especially with Amanda being Hilary’s twin, I am tired of these twin stories, been there done that too many times. Come on Gloria, kick some butt girl!!!

I agree.I for one did not like Hilary. She certainly wasn’t the goddess Devon believes she was. Look what she did to his father, marrying him than taking up with his own son while he was still blind yet! Shame on both of them and isn’t it funny that they never bring that part up of betraying Neil?
At least Valerie seems like a good person. I don’t like the twin part either and Iam pretty sure the whole idea of her twin thing is to break up Devon and his girlfriend.

Best. News. Ever!! We have needed her forever. What great chemistry between Gloria and ck. Peter and Judith bring it…in spades. She has been sorely missed as much as Peter having a romantic story. Please, writing team; do these two goldmines justice!

Lets hope it is permanent and not just a ten-line visit.

They need to get her back permanently! Replace three of the younger, embarrassingly unskilled actors with Judith Chapman.

We need the Baldwins back to the days when they were stirring the pot and scheming from the rest of the uptight genoa city elitists The Baldwins were always the darkhorse of society This slapstick routine of kevin and chloe is lame, Michael Baldwin has fine and upstanding and popping in and out of other peoples scenes kissing ass with his goofy grin is complete bullshit and Gloria hitting the sheets with longtime nemisis Jack is out of character Make them all villians again and in trouble and for heavens sake get some real drama in genoa city again Josh… Read more »

I agree with you Damien. I loved watching the reruns when they had Fisher Baldwin week. It left me wanting so much more. What they are writing now doesn’t compare to the good old days. I started binge watching the 1960’s soap Peyton Place and it is actually better than wbat Y&R is showing now. On a side note, I had a good laugh when Victor and Nick were discussing Kyle and his still being married to Lola. Victor has for kids by three different women, and Nicholas changes women every 5 minutes and they are handing out advice. You… Read more »

This is great news, Y&R has been very average in recent weeks. Gloria is a welcome return, perhaps she and Jack can get it together and she could stick around for more than a short stint. This show needs help and Judith returning is a good start.

I NO LONGER watch this so called, what they call Y&R, NOT…I said it before and I will say it again, WAKE UP CBS/SONY…but the higher ups haven’t listen to the fans so you know what, I am finished wasting my time in saying anything…this is it for CBS/SONY DO NOT LISTEN…Let me tell you, there will be NO MORE Y&R if you don’t do anything to correct what’s wrong…

Well that’s a reason to try watching Y&R again… at least for Chapman’s scenes. That 5 month break changed nothing. What the eff are the writers doing over there? Y&R is absolutely unwatchable. I have never said that about a soap in 40 years of watching. Haven’t been able to get through a full episode in 2020.
