There will be more new faces this fall on CBS’ The Young and the Restless.  In casting news, the daytime drama will welcome actress Zuleyka Silver to the cast.

Silver will play the role of Audra Charles, who is said to be, a high powered executive who’s lured to town by one of Genoa City’s business icons.

Zuleyka has previously been seen on CBS’ Young Sheldon, Hawaii 5-0Code Black, and The Mentalist.

In addition, late night talk show fans may recall her recurring role as “Mrs. Guillermo” on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Look for Zuleyka to first air on the Friday, September 23rd episode of the top-rated soap opera.

I understand the need to continuously refresh the cast and bring in new characters. But Y&R is hardly firing on all cylinders lately, and I think a major reset is badly needed – not another new character who will either be poorly utilized (like Ashland) or underutilized (like Sally). It would also be nice to see the show bring back some classic characters and lean into its past more, like other soaps tend to do. Y&R used to be great at this, but the show has definitely regressed in the last few years.

So…another new character we don’t need. And just who will this Selena Gomez/Camila Cabello lookalike belong to? Since we haven’t even developed the Allie character, I hope we don’t have another unknown sister/daughter/niece story brewing. Just means less time for Lauren, Traci, Kevin, Christine, Esther, Gloria, Jill, et al. This is no judgment on the actress; it’s not her fault our show is dying on the vine.

Except for Kevin, all the characters you list are grandmother age or beyond. The show is called The Young and the Restless, it needs some more young blood. Now whether anyone can write a proper story for this new character is the million dollar question.

I don’t care how old they are…Maybe they’re the “restless” component. Wow, that sounds corny. But the younger generation just isn’t cutting it lately. Noah and Allie are cute and beautiful but dull as dishwater. Kyle and Summer are saddled with a child and consuming careers…not much happening there. Sally is softening quicker than margarine…And Diane is transparent and odious. Rejuvenate the Abbott and Fisher/Baldwin family, including Fen, and deep-six Imani, too.

I don’t think “more new faces” is exactly what Y&R viewers have been clamoring for.

No faith in Josh Griffith or this character tbh.
Mariah , Tessa, Ally, Noah and even Moses and Faith are m.i. or have no real purpose on the show . He cant write for any of them. I gaurentee here comes another dud
He canned all the Rosales which Mal Young fleshed out only to can them and then bring on all these other newbies

Looking forward to some new faces and compelling storylines. Hopefully they won’t disappoint as done with Ashland Locke chapter. Maybe this new character will add some buzz to that drab Devon-Amanda tale.

The only buzz created will be when we hear that Devon, Amanda and her pushy sister are leaving Y&R altogether.

Y&R is about as bad as I’ve seen these past months. The storylines are just mind-numbing to watch. I can’t imagine the cast is happy about this. Certainly the vets see how bad the show is. Josh Griffith has truly sent this show into the ditch. I think people only turn it on out of habit. Just nothing to look forward to.

Everytime I see a post under y n r with the iconic logo I anticipate saying ‘ headwriter out’!!!!
The show is embarrassing
I have carpal tunnel for how much my fingers press the FF button
No new love to root for
Noah and Ally are boring
Kyle and Summer have turned into a old married couple who only talk about their inlaws and work
Tessa and Mariah haven’t had a real story since they got together
No intrigue or suspense
Production is stiff and awkward
The background music just sad

Sylvia, that’s exactly how I feel..nothing to look forward to. Remember those Friday cliffhangers from days past? The Adam rejection story is on its umpteenth go-around. Another Victor cover-up of a self-defense killing? Wow, it’s been at least three years since the last one. Sally and Chloe are in limbo, Devon is pulling the same autocratic crap he did with Anna and Fen, and this awful Diane is running roughshod over the whole city! Nothing to look forward to, indeed.

Just an observation about the future of cable. In a word, SCARY. I just watched the last Reliable Resources with Brian Seltzer after 30:yrs on CNN this Sunday morning. Then there is NBC putting DOOLs onto peacock…for the time being. I’m worried about what is going to happen to everything else we like since hedge funds and big business seem to be only concerned with ratings and dollars. And maybe political influence. I remember it started years ago when I think it was GE at the time bought the NBC newsroom.

Hello Rose! So glad I noticed your commentary here. I certainly agree with your concern about the future of cable as well as the influence of big business and politics in media. I have watched Reliable Sources, well, reliably, over many years, including the last 9 years helmed by Stelter. I think CNN made a big mistake canceling his very popular (longest running on CNN) show. You can’t blame Stelter, or CNN as a whole, or journalists in general, for calling a liar a “liar,” a racist a “racist,” a criminal a “criminal,” an insurrection an “insurrection,” an election lie… Read more »

Jamesj75…Thanks for your reply. Feel sorry for Ted Turner. He gave us CNN and TCM. They’ve already started ruining access and format to TCM. Sad.

My earlier comment cowers in light of this thrust into reality. Have no understanding of reasons why programs get cancelled. Reliable Sources was a most important program. The intent unlike most any other. This moves into reality and philosophy. Thank you for adding to the dialog here. As said before, know little about this. Thanks!

Thank you for your reply and input, Tani. I don’t pretend to know or understand why certain programs get canceled either. Thanks for saying, “Reliable Sources was a most important program.” I agree. Take care, Friend!

How long have Chance, Noah, Ali, Sally and, in one sense, Diane been around? They feel pretty new to me. Still a few days behind in viewing but so dislike this Victor thing. Years ago I stopped watching for a bit due to Victor’s script. Of course, I don’t recall what it was all about. Over the years of viewing certain actors seem to “spark” upon occasion. Often it is the role and writing which brings notice. Adam has stood out recently and Diane is a very talented performer. I don’t recall watching when she was previously on camera. When… Read more »

GH’s Avery Pohl on Esme’s Return: “She’s Using Her Time Wisely and Waiting For The Right Moment to Strike”

Next week, Esme Prince (Avery Pohl) is back lurking around Port Charles.  When viewers last saw Esme, she went over the parapet at Wyndemere during a showdown with Ava (Maura West).

For months, GH fans have been eagerly awaiting to see just how and when Esme would return to get revenge, or find out what she is after.  From the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, it looks like the wait is over.

In dishing with SOD on her on-screen return, Pohl shared that Esme is, “essentially on the run.”  However, she adds, “Esme is aware of the circumstances she’s put herself in.  She is aware that people are going to to be after her.  She’s not dumb.”

Just what’s in store for Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Ava, Trina (Tabyana Ali), Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) now that Esme is back?

As Esme’s plan begins to reveal itself, Pohl shares: “Before she goes right back into the thick of it, she scopes things out.  She’s using her time wisely and waiting for the right moment to strike.”

So, are you glad that finally Avery Pohl is back on GH as Esme? What do you hope happens next? Who do you think is Esme’s biological mother? Do you want her to get her comeuppance from the Cassadine clan and Trina? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Mishael Morgan Reveals Why She’s Taken ‘A Bit of a Step Back’ From Y&R and Gone on Recurring Status

This past June, we all celebrated the groundbreaking victory of The Young and the Restless‘ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair) as the first Black actress to ever win in the Lead Actress in a Drama Series category during the 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

In the months that followed, Mishael has not been seen as much on the top-rated CBS daytime drama, plus when fans noticed she was no longer in the opening main credits, it got them wondering just what is Morgan’s status with the show.

Finally today, via video on her Instagram story, Mishael shared some news after finishing her day of taping in Genoa City.

The Emmy-winner revealed she has indeed gone on recurring status with the show: “I just wrapped my last scenes back at Y&R, and I just wanted to let the cat out of the bag a little bit.  A lot of people have noticed that my name is not on the main credits anymore, and I wanted everybody to know that it was my decision.  I decided, actually, back in December, that I wanted to take a bit of a step back from the show.  I just felt like at this point in my life and this point in my career, I wanted to mix things up a little bit. But Y&R will always be home. I have so appreciated this safe place to land that they have given me, so I know that I can be back. They are like family to me, and coming back just reminds me of that.”

Morgan also thanked the loyal viewers and her followers expressing, “I’m so appreciative of you guys, and all the fans who have supported me along this Y&R journey. But I’m still on it, I’m still going to be recurring, so you’ll still catch me in Genoa City.”

The talented star ended with a tease of projects and roles to come, telling her fans to, “Keep looking out for new things.”

So will you miss not seeing Mishael as much on Y&R?  Are you exciting to see what roles and projects she gets involved with next? Are you glad she is still recurring with the show and will continue to make appearances in stories? Comment below.
