With the return of Kyle Abbott’s biological mother, Diane Jenkins (Susan Walters) to the canvas, looks like The Young and the Restless has a big story planned, and now comes words that popular actor Michael Mealor will also be returning to the top-rated soap opera as Diane and Jack’s (Peter Bergman) son.

According to a report in the latest Soap Opera Digest, Mealor is returning to the role and will be back on contract.

Skyle fans were upset recently when both Mealor and Hunter King (Summer) were written off the show and since then had made a few recurring appearances.

Viewers last saw Mealor and King during Victoria and Ashland’s nuptials in 2021.

No word yet on when Michael will first air under his new contract with the CBS daytime drama series.

So, excited to know Kyle will be back as played by Mealor? Let us know in the comment section below.

YEAH!!! Welcome back!

Yayyyyy!
Love Michael Mealor as Kyle, very missed. He really is a young future leading man.
I ‘d love for him to become buddies with the new Noah. My dream would be for Summer to stay in Milan with Marchetti and for Lola to return from Miami and the two to rekindle the romance which was so pure and innocent! If the original can’t come back because she’s made it big in movies recast her.
Can’t wait for Michael and Susan Walters to mix it up , she’s my favorite Diane.

Loved Kola! They have a star in the universe. Would enjoy seeing the Rosales family return. And if Y and R insists on keeping Phyllis, then bring back Avery and Daniel (and his child), etc. No need for any new characters. Develop the GC residents that already exist.

Loved Avery, such a good actress! I think Avery and Adam would be interesting. Especially given she s Phyllis’s sister she could easily mix it up with Nick, Sharon and cause a stir. Instead fit Sally in with Noah. Mariah and Tessa can get married, adopt a kid and ride off into the sunset.

Damien, I love your idea about Kyle and Noah. This show is sorely in need of a bromance. GH has several: Drew & Curtis, Jason & Spinelli, Jason & Sonny, Brando & T.J. since they reconciled. Mature male friendships are always welcome. Especially when both are nice people and drop dead gorgeous.

Exactly: ^^^ “… He really is a young future leading man ” i remember the day when that torch, ala jack Abbott and Victor newman, once upon a time : coulda woulda shoulda , passed the torch on to : just the most sterling twosome couple’ Amelia Heinle and Billy Miller , OH GOD! was this divine stuff ! Victoria and Billy . thru the ROOF , just drove. AND without doubt, along side with; Michael Muhney and the oh so lovely Sharon Case. Adam and Sharon… OOH LA LA the heart beat for every thing these two couple. DREAM… Read more »

I think this is good news, but no Summer or Harrison? The show needs Kyle. While it is good to see the Abbott family revived, I am again incensed for all the boneheaded decisions made in the oughts… Tracie losing her daughter. Brad’s death. Diane’s now supposed (WTF? Is thIs this General Hospital or Days of Our Lives?) death. No connection to Keemo until now after his death. (Really?) Am happy Abby has a child that is biologically hers. I’d like to see Ashley and/or Tracie have a romance. The actors on this show are strong. Might we craft stories… Read more »

Ashley and Ashland could very easily be a great screen couple ultimately, but the major problem is that both of their names begin with Ash.

So right, lakovos. This Diane resurrected tale is, for me, the worst of the admittedly bad stories you mentioned. Who cares about these people? Still no Kevin, Gloria, minimal Traci, Jill, Ashley, and Lauren; Noah made a good start and is already in stasis; Devon is on air nearly every day and in too many stories; Billy’s “soul bearing” pseudo new-age drivel is worse than most junior high school poetry; Victoria took way too long to accept the Ashland reveal. Now we’re gonna be treated to Rey and Chelsea — will it be Chey or Relsea? Ugh! 2022 isn’t looking… Read more »

“ Soul bearing, pseudo, new- age drivel”? I LOVE it! Billy engages in constant navel gazing and seems to think his obsession with his own navel is as exciting for everyone else as it is for him.

This crap with Billy has got to be the worst SL they’ve ever done. I record my shows so thank God for FF. I almost feel sorry for him, not Billy but the actor.

Chelsea was written to such lows, I cannot accept any redemption. Let her go. Rey is a good character but there is nothing for him to do. Sadly, the botched Rosales family integration left the character with nothing.

Wallah… Rey and Chelsea… i saw a photo shoot of this winsome twosome together extraordinaire … SHOOT

They kind of deserve each other, don’t they? Maybe Chelsea will light a fire under Rey, igniting something he didn’t know was there, thanks to Sharon, who seems like a dud.I think Adam was the only one that could light her fuse!

I got a little too endearing… I saw pics of them together… and thought… THIS COULD WORK… because I like Rey… just because he stunk with Sharon… don’t let Rey take ALL the blame. Now we have , from out of nowhere… !!!! whodathunk? Adam actually looks sexy masculine with Sally ? She’s a phenom in the making… I love how her ex-cast member (Jacob young ), touts her… they (B&B) NEVER gave her the time of day… so here she is… even I like her… VA VA VOOM… move over Phyllis… Sally has arrived

You really need to bring Summer back or at least have her on screen again from Milan.

Glad he’s coming back, but what about Summer and Harrison? Would love to see some scenes with Kyle blasting Ashland for lying about the cancer and him telling Harrison he was sick.

I’m looking for a recast of Summer- it needs to happen.
I doubt Hunter will return..
and the Keemo guy, I as many, have no nothing as to him..
It would be nice to have some flashbacks to see who he was.
So- Jack has his old ex back- is she his age?
it would be good to see Jack with a woman his age=65-70?
Anyways- something tells me this story will be a sleeper.
Anything involving the snore Jack will be a snore — lol

So glad Michael Mealor will be back in G.C as Kyle. I can’t wait to see who will be playing new Summer. A new wife and mother all in one shot. How lucky can one guy be?

General Hospital

Finn Carr is General Hospital’s New Rocco Falconeri

Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) and Lulu’s son, Rocco is getting a new look! Enter young actor, Finn Carr, who will take over the role on-air beginning this week.

Carr is very familiar to TV fans who have watched Hot in Cleveland, Fuller House, Criminal Minds and more.  He has also appeared in streaming series for Netflix including Alexa & Katie, and most recently in an episode of Paramount+’s, I Carly.

Now that Rocco is a bit older (with Carr taking over the role), will he figure more into the story of Dante/Sam’s (Kelly Monaco) relationship, and the arrival of Dante’s buddy, Cody (Josh Kelly) on to the Port Charles scene?

The role of Rocco was first played by twins through 2017. Since then, Mason Tannous, O’Neill Monahan, and Brady Bauer have all played the part at one time or another.  In story, it was actually Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) who carried baby Rocco when she was implanted with Dante and Lulu’s stolen embryo.

Soap Opera Digest first reported this latest ‘Rocco’ casting switch in their latest issue on newsstands now.

So, please welcome Finn to the cast of GH in the comment section below!

Daytime Emmy-Winner Ted King Returns to B&B as Jack and Shares: “Sheila Might Want To Watch Her Back”

This week on The Bold and the Beautiful, things are set to take a startling turn.  First, in the latest promo for the CBS soap opera, Finn (Tanner Novlan) finally wakes up from his coma and Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) is right there with him! What will her next move be?

Meanwhile, newly crowned Daytime Emmy-winner for Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series, Ted King (Jack), will be back on the canvas and that will come with more twists and turns in this already twisted storyline!

Photo: JPI

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, the character of Jack returns to Los Angeles after the massive falling out with his wife, Li (Naomi Matsuda) – who is somewhere under water at this point – and his biological son, Finn.  As viewers know, Finn was the ‘by-product’ of Jack’s affair with Sheila many years ago.

Now learning that Sheila shot both Finn and Steffy, Jack is not going to just let that go by quietly. Far from it!

King explained to SOD: “Sheila might want to watch her back.” He added, “This is not a happy family. At this point we’ve only seen Jack and Sheila extremely distant – and at each other’s throat.  So, I don’t think it’s going to get any better.”

Watch the latest promo for B&B below.  Then weigh-in; Glad to have Ted King back on the canvas? Will Jack get swept up again in Sheila’s machinations? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Days Of Our Lives

Sal Stowers On Final DAYS Airdate Shares: “What An Incredible Journey These Past Seven Years Have Been”; Lamon Archey Adds, “Days fans, THANK YOU! We made a SUPERCOUPLE & a SUPERFAMILY #ELANI”

That’s a wrap for both Sal Stowers and Lamon Archey and their on-screen alter egos, Lani and Eli Grant.  Today on the July 1st episode of Days of our Lives,  the couple exited Salem paving the way for the real-life departures of Sal and Lamon who are going on to pursue other TV and film roles.

On her final airdate, Sal tweeted: “What an incredible journey these past seven years have been. To all our #Elani crew and #Days fans thank you for loving and supporting us the way you did. We will miss you much, I will miss you. Xx”

Lamon Archey also added his own tweets, sharing: “#Days fans, THANK YOU! We made a #SUPERCOUPLE & a #SUPERFAMILY #ELANI”

In story, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) had a special farewell for Eli, and Abe (James Reynolds) adopted Lani so he could be her father again, in very touching moments on the air-show.

Still the departures of Sal and Lamon, who became quite the popular duo as #Elani, will be a very big blow for the long-running NBC soap opera.  But in soap operas, you never know when your favorite actors or characters might return.

So, sad to see Lamon and Sal as Eli and Lani exit Salem today? Comment below.
