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?

Let us know by voting below and who you are most excited about seeing on Y&R in the comment section below.

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.… Read more »

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…

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… Read more »

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 Stars Share Remembrances & Grief Over the Death of Jerry Douglas

Tuesday evening, the soap world learned of the passing of The Young and the Restless’ Jerry Douglas, who played John Abbott for more than 30 years on the CBS daytime drama series.

Douglas died following a brief illness at the age of 88, and just shortly before what would have been, on Friday, his 89th birthday.

Jerry is survived by his wife of 37-years Kym Douglas, sons Jod and Hunter, and daughter Ava, and his two grandchildren.

Several of Jerry’s longtime co-stars, castmates and former colleagues have taken to social media to share their condolences, grief and remembrances of their time with Douglas, who was as the patriarch of Genoa City’s Abbott family.

We will continue to update this post, throughout the day as more tributes pour in.

Kate Linder tweeted: “I had the pleasure of working with #jerrydouglas for #manyyears @youngandrestlesscbs #yr my heart and thoughts are with Kym, Hunter, and the entire Douglas family. Jerry will be #sorelymissed #rip

Jordi Vilasuso tweeted: “RIP Legend”

Lauralee Bell posted: “Sending my love and deepest condolences to Kym, Hunter, Avra, Jod and the whole family! We all loved Jerry so much! I was lucky enough to know Jerry since I was young. At times he felt like a father figure (maybe because we all wanted John Abbott as our father) and sometimes he’d remind me of my dad, but more often with all the events we’ve had, filled with laughs, he was the kindest man and the sweetest friend and I will miss him so much! Again, feel so fortunate for the group lunch date a few weeks ago. Thank you to Eileen, Peter and Kym for making that special memory possible! ❤️ Rest In Peace Jerry and Happy Birthday! You will be very missed! Love you Kym!#jerrydouglas ❤️”
