So just what will bring the character of Amy Wilson back to The Young and the Restless some 18 years later? That is the question on longtime fans of the number one soap this morning, when the news broke via Soap Opera Digest that Julianne Morris Poloha is returning to the role!  She will  air in November and begins taping today.

Julianne originally played the role on Y&R from 1994-1996.  She then went on to star on NBC’s Days of our Lives as Greta Von Amberg for four years from 1998-2002, and then took a very long time off raising a family, having three children with her husband, actor Kristoffer Polaha whom she married in 2003.

In story on Y&R, Amy Wilson was best friends with Sharon Collins (Sharon Case) and after Amy’s fling with Nick (Joshua Morrow), and Nick turned his affections toward Sharon, Amy took up with Matt Clark (Eddie Cibrian)! Later, Matt was shot  by Amy after he raped her.  Amy at the time had suffered terrible mental trauma from the incident, and until she came forward, Nick was blamed for Matt’s murder!

So, what do you think about Julianne Morris Polaha returning to Y&R?  What is up with Amy in 2014?  Comment below!

Um, I think they have. Several times.

Really? I think Y&R is doing a terrific job.
Why can’t I remember Amy? I remember Grace.

Same here. I do not remember Amy? Maybe when we actually see her, we will remember her. Just a thought.

I think this was around the time when they all hung out at the Abbott pool.

I’m not familiar with the character, but it seems like they’re trying to re-build the history that show once had. i hope this return turns out to be well orchestrated. I’m excited to see how this is going to go down.

interesting. I wonder what will bring Amy back. I think she could be connected to Joe Clark. People are speculating Joe is Matt Clark’s brother. It’s good to see someone from the past return instead of another newbie.

Richard

OMG that is a brilliant deduction! I definitely think these storylines will overlap. And her storyline was FABULOUS! The acting during that attempted murder mystery was amazing!!! I hope Amy is a friend to Sharon!!

Meg

I HOPE BOTH GRACE N AMY WILL BE FRIENDS WITH SHARON AND WILL SUPPORT HER ALONG WITH MARIAH.

There are too many cast members now and not enough attention on any of them, i.e., where is Meredith Baxter?

I have thought all along Joe Clark/Avery’s ex was connected to Matt Clark . I think her coming back is going to tie into him if so and they do it right this could be a great storyline. Nelson Branco mentioned this two weeks ago he must still have his sources.

Wow, I must be slipping I didn’t even think of that–but when you look at Joe, he does look like he could have been Matt’s brother— you’re right this could be a good story if done right– and I am hoping Amy coming back means Sharon might actual have a female friend again, nothing wrong with Hilary, she just seems a little young to be bff’s with Sharon.

Richard
Richard

I am SO excited for this! I didn’t even put the 2 together! This could be a brilliant story if done correctly and keep Nick and Sharon together and give them something exciting to do!!! Brilliant!!!

Nikki

Sharon’s best friend was Dru. She needs a female friend.

john

How long is she on Y&R. I always hoped that she would return to DAYS. I thought Greta and Lucas had promise but then they put Lucas in a coma. Plus we still don’t know if
John is her father or not.

Mo
Mo

Didn’t watch Y&R when Julianne was on, but I did see her on Days. Interested in seeing her here.

Meanwhile, who hasn’t Nick slept with? Geez….

john

She and Nick never slept together. She was a virgin when Matt raped her.

Mo

Text above said “Amy’s fling with Nick” so it sounded like they had had sex.

SZima

A fling doesn’t always involve sex.

CeeCee

Just Nick, Mo?…..LOL. Who hasn’t any of them slept with?

Steven

With Amy Wilson coming back, is it safe to say that Avery’s ex-husband Joe Clark is somehow related to Matt Clark?!

Mo
Mo

oooh, good one.

CeeCee

Yeah, Steven, the surname does pique the curiosity. I hope TPTB do not make this delicious man (Joe) have anything in common, other than the name, with Matt.!!!!!

Wow thats great news, I loved Amy so much, She is a wonderful actress. I hope they put her on contract. Now bring back sheila Carter, is is time to have Kimberlin Brown back.

Claudio
Claudio

I meant its time for Kimberlin Brown to come back as Sheila Carter, grainger, forrester warwick LOL. Sheila loves to marry the boys, Sheila has nothing on Liz Taylor lol. Liz is the queen of marriages. LMAO.

Matty
Matty

NOOOOOOOOOO!!! Do NOT bring back Sheila.

Richard
Richard

This is FABULOUS! She is an awesome actress! I was hoping she would come back to DAYS and fight Nicole for Eric and find out that she’s John’s daughter. But this could be JUICY! I hope her and Sharon are BFFs, and Joe Clark HAS to be Matt Clark’s brother! I wonder is he coming back to avenge Matt’s death?? And i hope Nick protects Sharon from Joe!! What a brilliant concept!!

Kim
Kim

Twin brother???

David

If Sheila came back again they would probably have her plastic surgeried to look like Michael Baldwin, since the real Michael is ailing. Then she can continue to make Lauren’s life hell. And while at it Kimberlin could show up as a character who only LOOKS like Sheila but is actually nice. Hey I should be getting paid for these ideas, LOL

CeeCee
CeeCee

Hilarious, David…so funny…still laughing…LOL.

David
David

Thanks CeeCee. I have lived through watching Port Charles in a deep freeze,
An Underground city below Lanier and much more so
what I jokingly suggested isn’t actually farfetched I guess

Jimmy

I didn’t watch the show back when Amy was on. But, after reading her backstory, I really hope Amy’s return will tie in with Joe Clark turning out to be Matt’s brother! I think this could be a great story!

Also, I noticed Amy’s last name is Wilson… same as Adam’s when he was brought back to the show in 2008… so could Amy be Adam’s half-sister, daughter of Hope and Cliff Wilson? Cliff was Hope’s husband at one time before his death, so could Amy be his daughter, either with Hope or from a previous relationship? After all, Adam is returning so this could very well happen.

I’m on Sharon’s side so I’m happy she’ll have a friend.

Omar

Why??? I really don’t understand why they do not concentrate writing for the cast in hand..When she was in the show back then she was good and the storyline was entertaining..But her character is not that relevant to bring back.

Barbara

There are so many characters on the show now. Hope she doesn’t break up Nick & Sharon!

wow! she s a stunner!, cant wait for matt clark/ joe clark part three!!!!
on the other hand with the cast bubble about to burst, i smell the new exec chris pratt cleaning house any day now as new execs always do when they start on the show! lets hope our faves dont get a pink slip!
too bad the writing, music, pacing s been so exciting as of late! i hope the current writers keep their jobs!

If I remember right, Matt raped Amy after Nick had taken her virginity, but there’s always a chance that she got pregnant by one of them. It would be strange/funny if Joe Clark were actually Matt and Amy’s son (although I know that Avery is supposedly Nick’s age, I know Dylan is a LOT older, and Joe may be closer to Dylan’s age than Avery and Nick’s).

While I’m glad to see her return, I’m just wondering how Joe Clark is connected to Amy (is he her son, or is he Matt’s nephew, son, brother or other relative).

Intriguing.

Meg

Austin could turn out to be Amy n Matt’s son,his mother who died b/c she helped some loser off ,may have been his adoptive mother,one never knows.

Meg
Meg

Avery helped the loser get off then he ended up killing Austin’s mom

Tony

I remember when Amy shot Matt…..Matt was a nasty guy…one of the worst….and Amy shot him, Nick was accused and jailed…..I remember it well….I hope she’s got all her marbles in tact… lol….or, perhaps, she’s the next new spycho…that could be fun

Dustin
Dustin

If I was writing this, I would bring her back as Courtney’s mother… Imagine this twist, Amy had Matt’s child after the rape and this child grew up to love Noah, whose mother is her former best friend.

Dustin…dude, now THAT is a SOAP TWIST!!!!! HELL YEAH!!!!!

Ever since they killed off Dru, Sharon has needed a friend in town and not her son or daughter. She had Dylan but that character is soooooooooooooooooo stuck in being a self absorbed superhero that he doesn’t have time for anyone else but his new momma, Avery and the gym. He only shows up to work the coffee machine when he is bored and needs to gossip with the town folk.

Bring back Amy and lets hope its not to be crazy mental on Sharon or to take the blame for killing Delia, either.

Meg
Meg

YES I WANT BOTH AMY N GRACE TO BE THERE FOR SHARON,

I was a huge Y&R fan back when Julianne was part of the show. I enjoyed her as Amy. I am actually planning on tuning back in to see what the writers have planned. Nick and Sharon have always been my favorite couple on Y&R. Julianne is beautiful and really grew as an actress during her time in soaps. I am looking forward to seeing her again.

Timmm

It looks like they are bringing her back for Nick and Sharon will be out there alone and lean on a new stranger in town to vent her troubles with. Little does she know that new “Stranger” will be “New Face Adam!”

You should bring Amy back, with a son/daughter she is claiming is Nick’s but later will find out it is Matt’s! In the mean time Amy will try to fit in but in reality she’s psyco and her and Phyllis become friends. You (Y&R) can take it from there. Sound good??? Love all your story lines since 1979!

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
