November sweeps brings with it big returns and surprises … and now comes word that the much talked about Phillip “Chance” Chancellor IV is coming back to The Young and the Restless. 

But this tine it won’t be John Driscoll taking on the role but actor Donny Boaz who has been cast by the CBS Daytime drama series.

Boaz has numerous film and television credits. Those include a recurring role on NCIS: New Orleans and the Lifetime movie Hometown Christmas. 

Donny took to his Instagram account to announce he landed the part on Y&R expressing:  “Soooo… this happened. I signed a multi-year deal and have now been working on “The Young and the Restless” for 6 weeks. And now, I finally get to share it with my friends and family. I will be playing Chance Chancellor. It’s been a fun and amazing ride so far. Easily the hardest, fast paced job I’ve ever had and it’s as equally rewarding. I feel so very thankful and grateful for this new journey. I want to thank my manager, @jpriluck123 and my agents, @hritalent Thank you Team. Here we go.
My first episode will air on 11/08, definitely tune in the 11th-15th. The stories are getting good.”

Circle this Friday, November 8th when Chance makes a stunning re-emergence on the Genoa City canvas.

Who is this Phillip?

Jill’s grandson from Phillip Chancellor lll,,,,her son with Katherine’s husband, Phillip ll. His smother is Nina Webster . I hope they also bring her back,,,,,Tisha Cast is wonderful.

Jill’s son Phillip lives in Australia and revealed he was gay after Cane impersonated him (that’s how Cane came onto the show)

This got my attention. Nice that the character is older. Welcome to the party, Mr. Boaz. Be present and take it in. There are no fans like soap fans…take any criticism with a grain of salt. Chance Chancellor…great soap name. Nina, come home!

It’s just sad that after Kristoff that his buddies and the Winters story line is being lost, Lilly could have been replaced and losing Cane/Daniel Goddard is just wrong! It’s just heartbreaking! You’ll miss him..hopefully he will get a great new part and Y/R will just keep hiring newbies that we could care less about.

I too need some help, and my questions don’t necessarily fall into line with the issue at hand, but who is Kyle’s mother and who is Billy’s mother?

I do recall Nina. There is a recollection that during her time on the program, perhaps one of her relatives, jumped out of a window. Nina would be a great character to return.

Help! So many new characters made one realize that I don’t recall some basic concepts of the program. Thanks!

Tani…Kyle’s mum is Diane Jenkins. She was killed by Nikki Newman. Billy’s mum is Jill Foster Abbott and he was fathered by the late John Abbott. Hope this helps! X

Thank you. I think I knew Jill was Billy’s mom, but must have been traveling regarding Kyle; that information is new to me. So, Nikki killed someone? OK!

Eden

Tani Sterling… Our Nikki has actually killed several times through the years; starting with her father, Nick Reed (who was actually played by the same actor who played REX STERLING many years later), and apparently when she was a child having shot and killed Bobby Marsino’s brother by accident while playing with a gun, and then Diane Jenkins who was killed by a blow to the head! She has been around the block quite a bit has our Nikki! X

I have no memory of Nikki killing Dianne, and I would have been watching back then. How come she didn’t go to jail. Also interesting that Kyle hasn’t got resentment for the woman that killed his mother.

Eden
Eden

stevie g…You know what, you are correct and I do apologize. The story line dragged on for six months and Nikki was accused of killing Diane in self defence. A video later proved that Deacon Sharpe (who was married to Nikki at the time) actually gave Diane the fatal blow to the head with a rock. The story dragged on for so long I had quite forgotten that bit! Soz! X

OMG, he looks like Steve Burton’s younger brother. I like him already, of course I’ve been fooled before. I sure don’t want to see him with Phyllis, Abby maybe.

Danielle

I also thought he looked a lot like Steve Burton. I did a double take!

Danielle, So glad someone finally agrees with me. I could not believe the resemblance, even the crashing through the ceiling like Jason.
Who do you think they will pair him up with? Looked like today that he kind of liked Abby, of course Phyllis had to push her big nose in, as usual. Sorry, Iam not one of her fans.

His character is so arrogant, but I remember him as a nice guy. He also seems a lot older than he should be, its odd that he seems only ten years younger than Cane, yet Cane was once assumed to be Phillip, Chances Dad. It was his half brother Ronin that was more arrogant. I thought Ronan was the FBI agent and not Chase. Am I wrong? Chase was previously involved with Chloe on the show.

I loved the character of Ronan and the actor who played him. SEXY!

Reports also note that episode 19 was partially shot and that footage of that unfinished episode will be cut into the finale.

As to what happens with the character of Jamal Lyon played by Jussie Smollett, who everyone knows ran into significant trouble with the law; on last reports executives said he would not be back for the final episodes of the series, although there has still have been mentions of the character throughout season 6.

47th Annual Daytime Emmy Ceremonies Canceled Due To Coronavirus Pandemic

There won’t be any “And the Enmy goes to _” come this June, where NATAS had originally scheduled three nights of award presentations honoring the best in daytime programming at the 47th Annual Daytime Emmys.   The three-day event was slated for June 12-14th, at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena. California.  Deadline broke the story of the decision to postpone daytime’s biggest night, for now.

NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision: “These were extremely difficult decisions to make, but at the end of the day the health and safety of our event attendees and staff must remain our paramount concern,” NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision. “We are closely monitoring public heath authorities’ guidance, seeking feedback from our awards communities, and evaluating the flexibility of our venue and production partners as we plan for the future in this unprecedented context.”

 NATAS chairman Terry O’Reilly said on the change” “Given our concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided that we will not be staging the 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in Pasadena this coming June.  As there are so many unknowns right now with the flow of information changing on a daily, almost hourly, basis, it would simply be irresponsible to move forward with our annual celebration of excellence in daytime television at this time.”
