Thad Luckinbill Returns To Y&R As J. T. Hellstrom!

Courtesy/CBS

The Young and the Restless is bringing back one of their fan favorite leading men in Thad Luckinbill!

Luckinbill will reprise his role of J.T. Hellstrom beginning with the December 12th episode of the CBS Daytime drama series.

J. T. is Victoria’s (Amelia Heinle) ex-hubby and the bio-dad of Reed (Tristan Lake Leabu).  Just what will happen when he is back on the canvas? Luckinbill was last seen on the soap in November 2010.

In a new promo released on social media today, Y&R confirmed the rumors that Thad is indeed coming back to Genoa City. And in the voice-over for this well-done video teaser, you hear Luckinbill’s stating:“Sometimes when you leave, you realize that you’re not done with what you left behind.“

Watch the promo after the jump! Then let us know if you are excited about the return of Thad as J.T. in the comment section below!

Most likely he will be back to controll Reed.

Vicitora will put sex all over him and I hope he shuts her down ..
Billy will mop like a ummm a hurt puppy lol
I really really hope T.J gets it on with Phillis ahaa! that would be a great put back on Victoria! I’d like that.

Thad Luckinbill a handsome guy and I’ll enjoy looking at him, if nothing else.

Well Friday they kissed. Maybe they think if they act together it could fix their marriage.
How else could they kiss on Friday when in real life they are getting divorced.
Anybody heard any scoop on how they can act together in a romance??

Celia

YESSSSS!!

Rhonda

Hell ya, I’m excited!
And Victoria needs him as her next love interest and Reed needs his father.
Good news all around, be interested to see him interact with the Jason Thompson’s Billy

Since my favourite hottie Steve burton left Y&R I have only been watching bits and pieces. Thad is still looking pretty fine, I might have to pay more attention again.

K/kay

I do truly hope they use him for the right reasons I have noticed mal young has an obsession with JT like Phelps had for Burton which we endured for five years now he is back over at GH pulling the same crap!

robert

can’t wait

Should be interesting. If he coming back for Victoria, then it will be very interesting, since the actor and Amelia Heinlie are divorced.

Filed for but not final!!!

J.T. should have been back a long time ago.

If only colleen were still alive..her and JT were adorable and sweet together. imo they were the last teen couple to have any longterm potential. …then MAB had to go and kill the Carltons off one by one

Killing Colleen was a huge mistake!!!!

Hope he is coming to town with the purpose of taking Reed elsewhere.

jaybird369

vinee…oh, yes. To me, JT has always been a WAY BETTER PARENT to Reed than that annoying and wishy-washy Victoria…PERIOD!!!!!

Celia

LOL. Love your humor, vinee.

Reed and his guitar. He doesn’t seem to have lessons with Tessa anymore. They kinda dropped that storyline.

Timmm

How about to the barber shop!

I’ve been literally been waiting for this since Reed came back on the scene. This is awesome!

diane

From what I’ve read, he’s done very well after leaving Y&R. Can’t imagine why he would want to come back to the daily grind of a soap. Might be interesting, but then with the crazy writing who knows.

Mo
Mo

I’m surprised to hear he’s returning too as I thought he had a successful career as a producer. Didn’t he produce “LaLa Land”? Or his company.

diane
diane

I do remember seeing his name on a very successful movie. Can’t remember which one, but I’m sure he made a lot of money off of it. Can’t be easy to be working with the ex wife either…lol

Helen

Cannot wait!

Judith

It would be great to see the JT character come back. He and Victoria were always one of my favorite couples.

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Scott (ATWT Fan)

Might this mean the end of J.T. and Mac? I wouldn’t be surprised if that were true, unless they’re recasting Mac, too?

Soaphound
Soaphound

I think it’s a good move. I always hated the way JT treated Kevin but he was otherwise okay. Plus he has all that nice blonde hair and winsome smile. Victoria could do worse. She has done worse. And I don’t like Jason Thompson’s Billy with Victoria anyway, so this will be a welcome diversion.

Mark Y

Ok, what is the deal with J.T.? He was with Victoria? Colleen? And Mac who? I love it when soaps respect their history. Why is JT’s an important return?

Jamesj75
Jamesj75

GREAT NEWS!!!!

Also, I remember the sweet way Kathryn Chancellor would say, “J.T.”

jaybird369
jaybird369

James…yeah, Brother…I remember that, too. Yep.

Later, Brother.

Jamesj75
Jamesj75

Thanks, jaybird369! I also now realize I misspelled the iconic character’s name: it is “Katherine!” I hope I’m not kicked off these boards for my faux pas… 🙂

Celia
Celia

Yes, James….how true! And, how I miss Katherine! The other character for whom I have been awaiting forever is, Mackenzie, the original ( Ashley Bashioum)…. don’t you agree, my friend? LOL.
Seriously—-nostalgia is both balming for the soul, and at the same time, sooo very heartrending. Melancholy feeling!!
Then, again, James, I’m too much of a romantic.

Jamesj75
Jamesj75

Thank you, Celia! I think all fans of Y&R who knew Jeanne Cooper in the role miss the long-term character terribly. I love your idea of bringing back Ashley Bashioum as Mackenzie.

Nostalgia is often my middle name…

You, my Friend, being a romantic is a definite plus!

jaybird369
jaybird369

Celia…DEFINITELY!!!!! Now that J.T. is coming back to the Y&R canvas, Mackenzie needs to follow him back to Genoa City ASAP!!!!! Oh…and if Ashley Bashioum (the first and original Mackenzie) is unavailable (or whatever), I’ll gladly accept Clementine Ford (Mackenzie #2) in the role. As for the other 2 ‘Mackenzies’…Kelly Kruger and Rachel Kinsey…NO, NO AND MORE NO!!!!!

Celia…later, my friend.

Celia
Celia

@Ron.
Hey, Ron,
Thak you….
I like it….JT and Phyllis. That would be so “delicious”, yeees!!!! And, it would precipitate Victoria delving within herself, facing the fact she’s still in love with her ex ( and in real life, too, LOL), just as you predict/presume….hmmmm…trouble brewing, Ron!!

jaybird369
jaybird369

James…you’re welcome, Brother. Oh…as always, I LOVE the smiley face…lol.

Later, Brother.

Celia
Celia

You bet, Jay….I hope against all hope that Mackenzie will return and oust/unseat the illegitimate heir to the Chancellor throne, as it were.
Why Devon and not Mackenzie, Jay, my friend?? Having known the strong relationship between Katherine and her granddaughter, I was shocked when the inheritance went to Devon. I always smelled a rat…..Katherine would have never done that of her own free will. I mean, everything to Devon?? No way!!
It sounds more and more like the shady deal Graham has going with Dina. Go figure….what a travesty!!
If TPTB had any sense of righteousness, they would right this wrong, and bring Mac back to claim what’s hers.

Ron
Ron

Agree wholeheartedly– Ashley (MAC) was the first and best… and as Celia pointed out, she should be the rightful heir to the Chancellor estate. How delicious it would be to have that fight with Jill. And, she’s the best bet for Billy, was from the beginning and still is.

As for JT– turn around is fair play: JT will fall for Phyllis, just when Victoria (dip-stick she is) realizes she’s in love with JT.

It would be great if J.T. Returned to bring Reed’s bills back that he left in DC when he ran away to GC. The actor portrays Reed with as much excitement as I get when I discover I finished Oreo cookies two days early and left the empty box in the cupboard.

Reed is a real bore with zero chemistry with anyone.

But J.T. back to make Billy struggle is gonna be AWESOME!!

jaybird369
jaybird369

Amelia Heinle and Thad Luckinbill inside the same CBS Studio (or whatever). This is gonna get very, very ‘interesting’…lol.

Hey…just saying……….

K/kay

AH welcomed him back showin a picture of them at the beach with their kids. I do not think MY would bring him back if he thought their was going to be a problem they are also both adults .

Mo

Is he back long term? Is Mac returning with him? What about his kids with Mac? Wonder what brings him to town. Maybe to take on Cane. LOL

Celia

I would looove that, Mo. ….no kidding!!!! Cane is a waste.

Chrystie-Delancey
Chrystie-Delancey

I am surprised he needs to do this after the success he and his brother had with La La Land.

I hope they play this card correctly. Didn’t he and Mac have a child? Where is she?

Chrystie-Delancey
Chrystie-Delancey

Of all the returns, I would want Michael Graziadei back! He had such great chemistry with Christel Khalil. Cane is a bore. He needs Amber back to give him some life or to play his evil twin.

Totes agree! 🙂

Wow, I didn’t know that! I noticed that he was in a recent firefighter movie with Josh Brolin and Mile Teller, but I didn’t realize that he produced it, too. He executive produced La la Land, and several other A-list-starring movies.

How long will Thad Lunckinbill be on the Young and the Restless? What time frame is his contract? I realize from his video that he has a lot of other interests. He is by far the hottest actor on all the soaps.
Love watching him with his ex-wife Amelie Heinle!

Love that he is back always liked him. So sorry about his real life divorce.

Melissa Reeves Talks On DAYS Time-Jump; Paul Telfer & Eric Martsolf Chat Between Their Scenes On ‘Inside Salem’ Podcast

On the latest episode of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, the special guest is enduring DAYS star, Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), who found herself as the catalyst for the year time-jump and flash-forward that fans are now watching play out on the daytime drama series.

Last week, Jennifer was pushed off a balcony following her wedding to Jack by Princess Gina.  And on last Friday’s cliffhanger, Jennifer woke up out of a coma to learn from Jack that she has been asleep for a year.

Now with a year having passed in Salem, Jennifer learns bits of information of what has happened to her loved ones.  Meanwhile, Eve is in lock-up for the crime against Jennifer, and it appears Jennifer cannot put the pieces together of who pushed her on that fateful night to clear Eve.

In addition during the podcast, Melissa chats with host Michael Fairman on the passing of John Clarke (Ex-Mickey), and being one of the core characters tied to the legacy of the Hortons – the first family of Salem.

As to the initial reaction to the time-jump, Melissa reveals that the entire cast was very excited, but all the pressure of the attention to detail was discussed with make-up, hair, and in the writing and production.

Reeves shares the entire DAYS team was up for the challenge. Melissa also reveals during the dramatic scenes where Jennifer’s family was acting emotional circles around her, that she fell asleep during her scenes while she was playing Jennifer in a coma.

Later, Paul Telfer and Eric Martsolf have a little hang out discussion in between scenes, that is often hilarious when you can imagine getting Xander and Brady, and their real-life portrayers, Paul and Eric, in the same room in front of a microphone.
