There will be another new character on the canvas on CBS’ The Young and the Restless with casting news on Monday, that Madison Thompson had nabbed the new role of Jordan- a worldly young woman who will prove that there’s more than meets the eye.

According to Deadline, Madison starts work at CBS Television City on Tuesday, with her first episode set to air in late October.

If Thompson looks familiar she was recently seen in season 3 of Netflix’s hit drama, Ozark.   On that series, she played Erin, the 17-year-old daughter of Helen Pierce (Janet McTeer) who joined her mother as she moved to the Ozarks to help oversee the Byrdes’ operations.

The young actress has also been seen on on ABC’s Kevin (Probably) Saves the World.

Not only is Thompson an actress, but a freshmen at USC.

So, who do you think “Jordan” will be involved with in Genoa City as played by Madison Thompson? Comment below.

Johnny…EXACTLY!!!!! To me, at this point, Y&R constantly adding new characters to the canvas is getting WAY OUT OF HAND!!!!! And, dude…it’s like I’ve been saying FOREVER…BRING TRICIA CAST BACK TO Y&R ALREADY!!!!!

Have a good one.

I can’t see her being paired up with anyone who’s in her age bracket unless they bring Lily’s son Charlie back. Other than that, I really don’t see her doing much with this storyline that the writers have written for her.

Hmmmm–I like that idea. This girl has the look of Elvis Presley’s granddaughter.
And, speaking of Lily, she told Amanda that she was shocked finding out she was Hilary’s sister. Really? Same face!! Oh, gee—-what a shock!! These idiosyncrasies drive me nuts.

Hi there! what a splendid way to describe a way of treating viewers as well as characters in the show: idiosyncrasies– idiots, for short!

I’m hoping she is Tessa daughter or sister. If anyone is need of a storyline it is Tessa.

Plsssss do not put her anywhere near Theo. The only person that should be near that clown is a airline agent to get him a tic outta town
Put her with Mariah and Tessa( is she must stay around) or better yet get Noah and Fenn back where they belong and beef up the young set since Vic, Jack and Nikki are really showing their age and wont be on set as often due to covid.
Make her a full out vixen to jazz up this sleepy town. Genoa citys very weak on drama these days.

Thank you. Wellsaid. My sentiments exactly. Theo is a stooge. A unit!!

Celia…my sentiments as well. In the beginning, I found Theo to be kind of intriguing. But, lately…Theo has been creeping me out. Beyond yikes and yuck.

Celia…have a good one.

Hi, Jay—so good to hear from you, my friend. Survived the rudiments of Covid, I see—-LOL.
I never did take to Theo. I still think he’s an imposter. Ciao–stay well.

We still haven’t seen Courtney Hope’s first appearance, so we don’t know if she is becoming a new character or if Sally Spectra II is coming to Genoa City. Maybe “Jordan” will be connected with this story line. Seems that Noah will return from his West Coast trip shortly since his mom is going to need more medical procedures.

And Madison did a really good job on Ozark, so looking forward to some new energy on this show. Super tired of the very boring writing and terrible storylines that these talented actors have to recite! We need some energy and mystery since COVID regulations are preventing the full-blown romance scenes.

And yet you will not bring back the veterans they could help set up story bring characters back and then bring in new characters that are related etc etc etc Why?? Of course we need new generations but you have to care about them you have to make us know them!! Why is this so hard to understand ? Doug Davidson 42 years with this show bring him back then create family friends around him I just do not understand the ignorance of this writing team ! Nate his father was Paul’s best friend story there Chance he was involved… Read more »

You can throw all the new characters you want at viewers it still doesn’t change the low ratings and poor writing. Covid-19 exposed your true weakness in the ratings game.

Y&R is in a slump right now, so new blood might help. And I’m always glad when The YOUNG & the Restless adds any character who is under 40! We have enough grandparents on the show!

I think this Jordan is the “older” girl that Faith has been sneaking around to be with.
I don’t understand why at this point when everything is fine with her mom, etc. that she is acting out and seemingly so unhappy. Another new teen angst SL I guess.

Ooh, l guessed right! Jordan may fool Sharon but I hope Nick knows she’s too good too be true.
