The Young and the Restless spoilers explore the possibility of a major character departure in 2017. Savvy fans know that Steve Burton (Dylan) has already left the cast of ‘The Young and the Restless’. Whether his character will be recast, or written out of Genoa City remains in doubt. But beyond Mr. McAvoy, what other fictional personality could depart in 2017?
New head writer Sally Sussman believes that character-driven drama is key to soap world success. Her commitment to stalwart characters means that, in all likelihood, Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott), Victor (Eric Braeden), Jack (Peter Bergman), Ashley (Eileen Davidson), Nick (Joshua Morrow), Sharon (Sharon Case), Billy (Jason Thompson) and Victoria (Amelia Heinle) aren’t going anywhere.
Pure speculation isn’t connected to absolute truth. Therefore the following conjecture is meant to spark reasoned debate, not diatribes. Daytime drama is a place to escape from life, not a topic that should be used to attack like-minded fans. And all who truly enjoy this genre are on the same side. Yes, that’s right.
The Young and the Restless spoilers ask is Cane (Daniel Goddard) crucial to the Winters’ clan? While Goddard is a terrific actor and his social media outreach is incredible, a case could be made that Cane is dispensable. This scribe doesn’t want Goddard to go, so Y&R needs to give him meatier arcs in order to avoid back office types justifying his character’s potential write-out.
If Jack isn’t going to be with Phyllis (Gina Tognoni), does the former Mrs. Abbott and former ‘Red’ have a long-term spot in this fictional town? Yes, she’s Summer’s (Hunter King) mother and is connected to seemingly entrenched characters like Michael (Christian LeBlanc) and Lauren (Tracey Bregman). But it is reasonable to say that Phyllis could be erased next year. And by the way, Tognoni has taken this character to great places since she first debuted in 2014.
Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) was Adam’s (Justin Hartley) soul mate. That character is believed to be dead and, according to Sussman’s comments, isn’t certain to return unless Nick needs to know Christian’s (Jude and Ozzy McGuigen) paternity. Therefore, has this widow’s time reached a dead end?
Abby’s (Melissa Claire Egan) name is conspicuous by its absence from the list of indelible Newman’s shown in the second paragraph of this feature. The unusual feel of Ben (Sean Carrigan) being kicked to the curb by Abby earlier this year could indicate that one, or both characters are on their way out?
Fans of ‘The Young and the Restless’ rightfully express their opinions on a regular basis. So, which character shown, among others, could be written out of the show next year? CDL is a leading source for everything linked to ‘The Young and the Restless’.
