Here is what Mishael shared in her message: “It is with a heavy heart that I announce my departure from The Young and The Restless. There were many factors that lead to this decision, but ultimately, five years just felt right to me. I feel blessed to have worked with some of the most talented, hardworking and fun-loving people in television. Thank you to the cast, the crew and everyone at Sony and CBS who made the past five years truly unforgettable. A special thanks to my partner in crime Bryton James, who always brought out the best in both me and Hil. Last but definitely not least, I want to thank all of my amazing fans who have supported me on this journey. Your gifts, love and kindness over the years (and days) have warmed my heart and fueled my soul more than you could ever know. Although my adventure as Hilary Curtis is coming to an end, my work on screen is far from over. This may be a goodbye from Hilary, but I’ll just say ‘see you soon’.  Love Always,  Mishael”

Do what’s best for you I think she is a lovely lady I guess no more black leading ladies in Genoa city ! I grew to like her I think she is very talented but maybe jumping off the titanic is the right thing for her

yes.. because it looks like this titanic is already sinking!… currently it seems that the hilary/ devon story is the only other story besides the constant newman and abbott stories that monopolize the show every day.theres no diversity of characters or colors! we need more minor storylines so the audience doesnt remain bored with victor and jack adnaseum. No Paul, Michael, Lauren , Jill..etc?
As for diversity maybe bring back Leslie,Tyler or Olivia!!

What titanic? General hospital and days of our lives are the titanic.Are you aware that the young and the restless has a higher rating then some nighttime dumb shows.One year ago cbs renewed Y&R for 3 years.They gave 2 year renewals to every other cbs daytime show including B&B which is a complete waste of time since susan flannery quit.Two years from now,the young and the restless will be the last soap standing.The show has to replace the character of hillary.I believe by november they will find another talented african american woman for the role.

Mishael , has it absolutely right!
5-years is the ‘get out’ time before one would become stereotyped as the character.
After 5 years its hard for a soap actor to move on and up because they are seen as being their character, no changing that.

We will see Mishael in other things, she has a media career ahead of her.

So, so sorry to see Mishael leave! She played the perfect “love to hate” character and she will be missed.
My regret was that Hilary was saddled with Devon, the most boring character on the show! It’s too bad they didn’t pair her with someone with a personality!
Once again, TPTB are short-sighted in not coming to an agreement with Mishael!
I hope the “see you soon” comment means she’s already signed with another show and we really will see her soon!

Devon: the 2 billion dollar pipsqueak… is weak dismal and LACKING. it’s no wonder… Ms. Morgan sees fit to MOVE ON. can’t say that for the actors who portray devon and lily. what a waste of space. as I will continue to ; there is a long long long line of actors who want to act. Mal Young – IS NOT – covering all his bases. letting go one of his best actors. Ms. Morgan: “I wish you ALL the best you deserve success.” I hope you kept a nest egg ..

So sorry to hear that she is leaving the show. I have been watching the y & r from the very beginning and thought Mishael was a great addition to the show. She is beautiful and talented. I will miss her but wish her all the best. Not happy with the way it ended.

I think Mishael is an amazing actress and her character kept the boredom and ridiculous recent storylines from becoming unbearable. I have watched Y&R since the first day, and Bill Bell must be turning in his grave because of the stupid and far out storylines that have arisen of late. I’m sure the few extra bucks that Mishael requested would not have broken the CBS bank, and would have prevented an exodus by the fans. Sayonara Young & the Restless.

I think they shud have fought to keep her. She is a good actress, gorgeous and lit a much needed fire. They keep people around that are so easy to fast forward through and let the good ones go. So stupid. I only continue to watch becoz I have watched since it began but overall pretty boring stuff . Lol

General Hospital Shifts Production Restart Date

On Friday, ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital has now determined to push back their production restart date given the escalating number of cases of the coronavirus as the pandemic has worsened in Los Angles County.

The New Men of B&B Revealed

The Bold and the Beautiful has been the first soap back in production since COVID-19, and now comes exciting casting news that will surely bring some new energy and drama to the CBS Daytime drama series.

First, the series has decided to recast the role of Zende Forrester Dominquez last played by Daytime Emmy-winner Rome Flynn (2015-2017).   Now Delon de Metz will be taking on the role of adopted son of Kristen Forrester and Tony Dominguez.

And in addition, potentially part of the mystery we alluded to earlier in the week as to just who may be the new man in Steffy Forrester’s  (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) life, may have been answered with the casting of Tanner Novlan in the role of Dr. John ‘Finn’ Finnegan.

Novlan is married to former ‘Bold and Beautiful’ star Kayla Ewell (Ex-Caitlin Ramirez) and has been recently seen in the Liberty Mutual commercials where he plays an actor trying to say the lines of dialog required of him but keeps messing it up.   He was also recently seen in 2019 on the CW’s Roswell, New Mexico series.

TV Line broke the casting news.

So, what are your thoughts of a new Zende and a new doctor coming to The Bold and the Beautiful? Comment below.
