Y&R Poll: Which Arrival Or Return Are You Most Looking Forward To?

Photos: JPI Studios

The Young and the Restless is currently in reset mode bringing back popular fan favorite actors and characters and beefing up their cast.  The series recently won three Daytime Emmy Awards for scripts and shows under former executive producer and head writer, Mal Young, but who at the same time saw the ratings drop for the series, although it still remains strongly ahead of the other soaps at number one.

Now with Anthony Morina and Josh Griffith steering the ship in Genoa City, the powers-that-be have already brought back Doug Davidson (Paul), and nuAdam in the form of actor Mark Grossman, and Mishael Morgan (Ec-Hilary) is now making appearances as well, but there is plenty to come next month and through the summer.

Now, we ask you to cast your vote in our latest poll.  Which arrival or return are you most looking forward to?  There is Michelle Stafford’s major return as Phyllis, Greg Rikaart reprising his signature role as Kevin Fisher, the announcement of Eva LaRue joining as Rey and Lola’s mom, plus the return of Melissa Claire Egan as Chelsea, or perhaps you are most excited about someone who has not officially been named to join the canvas, or are hoping for another big acquisition or blast from the past?

Chelsea and Kevin

All except Chelsea— liked her, neither as Annie (AMC), nor as Chelsea–not fond of this actress.
The best return is, of course, Michelle–the best arrival is Eva.
The picture would be complete if Billy M were to return!! Yeah, baby…..

I agree, very unlikeable character (Chelsea).

I am really excited to see Kevin (Greg Rikaart) return as well as Michelle Stafford as Phyllis. Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) will be a welcome return. The Eva LaRue thing I sincerely couldn’t care less about. Now here’s what I’ve been thinking – silently so no one hears it – I am watching the character of Billy Abbott currently portrayed by Jason Thompson – who I have ZERO beef with – and I am feeling like he is on the way out. And here’s where it gets good — I really think Billy Miller could be on his way back. I don’t know where I’m getting this vibe but I truly have been feeling it. Amelia Heinle had such chemistry with Billy Miller. She hasn’t had that heat with anyone since. Billy Miller is honestly the only Billy Abbott. We have had the substitute teacher in long enough. Come on home Billy Miller. If Y&R is able to make that casting coup I will suffer through any Rosales character as long as the hotness that is Billy Miller is on my screen. C’mon it will be Christmas in a short while..Santa in case you’re reading this from your summer vacation in Jamaica..pretty please? I’ve been so good I swear..(well not really but I really want this) Had to speak it into being…

Please I liked him on Y&R as Billy but hate his character on GH and how they write for him.

I would love to have Billy Miller back, also.

All I can say and I know I am in the minority here, I am not looking forward to Greg Rikaart (Kevin) back…I have never been a fan of the character of Kevin…I don’t mind seeing the others return…

Not looking forward to Michelle Stafford at all. Melissa Claire Egan and Greg Rikaart are great! Eva La Rue, I don’t know but she looks the same age as Jordi…

Seth

None, U like them all, but I’m already feeling many of my favorites (Traci/Devon/Lauren/Michael/Jack get so little screen time, this will only add to the characters competing for focus.

Jack? He’s on the screen every time I turn on the TV. A matter of perspective, I guess, lol.

I’m not excited over any of those peoples return.
They are all reruns / been there done that.
(no big deal)
The only rerun that would excite me is–
Michael Muhney !

And that’s not happening so eeehhhh.

I agree that Michael Muhney should have returned! The new Adam is NOT that interesting or likeable whatsoever!

I would have to say Ms.LaRue and Kevin, if he is the old Kevin and not a newer version and doesn’t bring Chloe with him.

Greg Rikaart for sure. Iffy on the others. I know it all business but I think Gina Tognoni got shafted so not over the top about Stafford’s return. And, it seems off that they would get rid of the character of Arturo just as they bring on his mother.

I quit watching YR when Chelsea left. I’m thrilled to have MCE returning. Curious to see Stafford reclaim the role she originated and love anything Eva la Rue does. All in all I’m very happy.

I am excited about Greg and Melissa coming back. I really liked Gina in the role of Phyllis, so I am NOT thrilled that Gina was let go, so Michelle could come back. Michelle plays the character too over-the-top. I liked Gina’s more nuanced,balanced portrayal. She is my all-time favorite Phyllis-regardless of Stafford originating the role. I know that Eva is a great actress, so I am willing to give her a chance. I wish they would back Robert Adamson(Noah), Judith Chapman(Gloria), and Billy Miller(Billy). I like Jason Thompson, but Billy M. is still my favorite Billy.

I voted Chelsea – I want to see Adam & Chelsea reunite. I also like the fact that Kevin w/b returning. While I was a fan of Michelle Stafford when she played Phyllis, I loved Gina T. from Day #1 – never have I accepted a recast so quickly, and she has become my favourite; not to mention the way she appeared to have been treated which infuriates me and which has coloured my thinking about seeing MS again.

As for ELR I know her from AMC – don’t like her; and certainly don’t know why they would bring a Rosales mother on when two of the clan have left. As for appearances, she looks younger than she is – although I’m assuming she w/b made to look like the Rosales mother, and Rey looks a bit older than he is – a weird choice of casting IMO and don’t look forward to her appearance at all. I can only hope it’s a short term gig, but haven’t read anything about that.

I assume Eva LaRue’s character will be Jack’s new woman.

Kevin n Chelsea. There is something “wrong” Abt the actress switch for PHYLLIS that is unfair. (Sorry, Michelle left cause she didn’t like it there so why does she get to come back when an excellent actress is ok as long her?)

Love Eva but too young to play Rey’s mom AND WHERE THE HELL WAS SHE WHEN HER DAUGHTER WAS DYING FOR A MONTH???!!!! Sorry… Just not wanting to see another Rosales.

Y&R’s Elizabeth Hendrickson Gives Birth To Baby Girl

We are so happy to hear the news and to report that The Young and the Restless’ Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe) is a mom!  The actress and her husband Rob Meder are the proud parents to their daughter named Josephine James.

Josephine weighed-in at 6lb., 11 oz. and measured 20 inches long.  The joyous moment for Liz and Rob  didn’t come without some hiccups, especially for Liz entering the UCLA Santa Monica hospital amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

PEOPLE had the exclusive pics and statement from Hendrickson who expressed: “We are thrilled to introduce our little Josephine James Meder to the world – she’s perfect in every way,”

Earlier  week on her Instagram. Liz revealed: “We’ve decided to induce labor with everything moving so rapidly. We felt it was safest to get her here safely before Rob wasn’t allowed in the delivery room like they’re doing in San Fran and NY.”  However, she later added,  “20 mins before we walked into the hospital the midwives were notified that after delivery only the mother is allowed with the baby postpartum. Rob has to leave. We are heartbroken but we also feel like I’m in incredible hands. My midwife Didi is a dream and my nurse Andra is so awesome!” she wrote. “I know i will be well supported by everyone in the maternity ward.

Share your congrats and well-wishes below for Liz and Rob and their new family member, daughter Josephine!

Happy 47th Anniversary to The Young and the Restless

The number-one soap opera for more than three decades, The Young and the Restless turns 47-years-young today.  The now iconic CBS Daytime drama series debuted back on March 26th, 1973.

The series created by the late great Bill Bell and Lee Phillip Bell, originally was broadcast as half-hour episodes.  The show expanded to one-hour back in February of 1980.  In fact, the shows working title was “The Innocent Years” until it became the much sexier and grand, The Young and the Restless.

In the beginning, it was the drama between the Brooks and the Fosters that set the tone, but in the 80’s those families were eventually phased out in favor of the Newmans and the Abbotts, who remain the core and most popular clans in Genoa City.  The Chancellors remained throughout the decades in story capacity, as well.

On January 30, 2020, CBS announced it had renewed Y&R for an unprecedented four more years through 2023, which means it will definitely live to see its big 5-0!

In a statement on the renewal, CBS Entertainment president Kellty Kahl: “It’s a remarkable achievement and a testament to the extraordinary cast, gifted writers, talented producers and supremely passionate fans,”

Congrats to all the hard working men and women in front of the camera and behind the scenes at Y&R. We all look forward to you returning to production as soon as its safe, as ee all must do what we can right now for each other during these trying times during the coronavirus pandemic.
