Tyler Johnson Announces His Departure From The Young and the Restless

Photo: CBS

On Monday, actor Tyler Johnson took to Twitter to let his followers and fans of CBS’ The Young and the Restless know that he is out as Theo Vanderway.

Johnson joined the cast back in 2019, as a not-so-good friend to Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) while they were living in New York City.  Later, Theo was revealed to be the grandson of Dina Mergeron (Marla Adams).

In his first tweet on his exit, Tyler posted: “That’s all folks!!”  That was followed by: “I’ve always been an optimist. Today isn’t an end, but a new beginning. Thank you to everyone tuned in to watch “Theo Vanderway”- it was all a blast. The future is bright. Love you all.”

 

No word yet on Johnson’s last airdate in this developing story.

So shocked to hear that Tyler will no longer be part of the cast of Y&R? Comment below.

I am so sad to hear this. I really loved Theo with Lola. He was a bright ray of sunshine….a prince charming….

I thought it was weird the way Lola and Theo were hot and cold.

Bad move, wrong to let Theo go. Let Noah stay where he is. He really did care for Lola. The family treated him wrong. Hope he will leave with a good story line to wipe that smug look off of Kyle’s face

Biggest mistake Young and Restless have ever made. There are some other “stars” that would not be missed but this guy made the show fun was from the first day. My daughter and I have wondered if he would have a good story line. Sorry you didn’t give him one. We thought he might get a pretty big inheritance from the will and trouble would begin then. Lola seems to have a boring role and a few others. Heard you were going to bring back Noah and he didn’t add anything to the show. The show has definitely done him… Read more »

“Made the show”? Made the show worse you mean. They could have done more but didn’t. Theo was always swarmy.

Sorry to see you go. You could have been a thorn in Kyle’s side for a long time to come. Especially if you got Lola pregnant.

I did not like the character initially, but he’s grown on me. There are still storyline possibilities for Theo IMO. After Kyle walked out of the memorial celebration because everyone followed Theo’s lead in dancing etc. put me right on Team Theo. In the meantime, they bring on new young characters which are not needed IMO – and Theo DOES have the Abbott connection. Disappointing decision.

I’m not surprised by this news. Given that spoilers have stated that Theo would be going after $$ in an illegal way after Dina’s death, the writing was on the wall.

Peace out!
…now bring back a younger male actor who actually belongs on the canvas with ties, like Noah or Fenn as played by the previous actors Robertson and Zach Tinker.
Big wish list would also include sending Mariahs singer gf off and replacing her with Ana again , and also Abby and Chance with Mia and Arturo. All three actors are about as exciting as waiting for water to boil

Aw, I really liked the character and the actor had grown on me a lot. He finally seemed to have loosened up and made Theo his own. And it was exciting to think of a Kyle-Theo family feud that could last years. I truly don’t understand the decisions being made at Y&R these days.

So sorry that he is leaving. There was a lot of potential for his character. He will be missed.

They gave him a sorry role to play. I like him but always wished he would change. Y&R could have made him much better. Hate to see you go because of stupid story line they gave you. You will go far.

Not a big loss. Not a problem with the actor, the writers blew it yet again. So suddenly Dina had another child with long gone Stuart Brooks (who few viewers even know who he was) and he is not living, but he has a son… Jill/Lauren went no where storyline wise…It would have been far more interesting had Theo been the young baby saved when Jack and Nici’s child died and received the transplant. The character the show should have kept was Graham, that had real potential.

Sad he is leaving I really wanted him and Lola together. Sally is gone (Y&R now) and now him. I’ll probably quit watching. Y&R watching since a high school and I’m 66 now. Hope he comes to GH.

Y&R never has a villain.
Y&R is dull very dull, never a thriller.
Never high drama, just blah same old stuff.
Y&R never gives high drama, just stale.
Y&R needs a dark side to keep it intriguing.
It’s quite mushy stuff ..

Hey, wasn’t Ian Ward dark enough? Also I think Adam is about as dark as you can get, especially as a regular family character that makes everyone miserable, except Sharon who tries to make herself and everyone else believe she loves Rey. Yea, like a brother maybe! Wonder what will happen when he finally gets a clue, some detective, huh?

Goodbye. I never enjoyed him or his character. The only thing I did like was when he was eyeing all the jewelry the Abbots had from the teardrop emerald. That was funny.

Am sorry to see Theo off the canvas. Why create this character, tie him to the Abbotts, then just let him go? (I know, he could always return.) I like the idea of laying out the future with a lifelong Kyle-Theo rivalry in family, love, and business. I had thought Sally Spectra’s arrival would really give us an exciting pool of younger people… Kyle, Summer, Theo, Lola, Sally, Noah… I do remain loyal to Y&R, and it does a lot right, but I could use a dynamic powerful storyline. It is likely the pandemic, but I feel Genoa City is… Read more »

OK, it is almost the end of the month, why is he still here? In cahoots with Sally of course. I was hoping she would return to her original Sally, but guess she will be a bad Sally as she was when she left B&B.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?
