The Young and the Restless spoilers document that Michael Muhney’s (Adam Newman) return to Y&R as Adam Newman is no longer a rumor. In addition to Eric Braeden’s (Victor Newman) social media announcement, developing Y&R plot points support that the pathway to Adam’s return now exists. However, the impact of ongoing efforts by soap opera fans must be cited as the leading reason why Muhney will help resurrect the infamous Adam Newman this year.
Publicly posted photos of male actors auditioning at Y&R in recent weeks appeared to indicate that the Adam role was going to be filled by a new actor. However, various sources indicate that those men were actually auditioning to become the new Dylan (formerly played by Steve Burton).
Current co-executive producer and head writer Sally Sussman said, upon her return to the show last fall, that she didn’t plan to bring Adam back at that time. She wasn’t going to do a Christian (Jude and Ozzy McGuigen) reveal with a character who was off-camera. She believed that there needed to be a compelling reason for Nick (Joshua Morrow) to learn the truth about his perceived son’s biology in order for an Adam recast to happen.
Since Sussman’s debut show in December, Chloe’s (Elizabeth Hendrickson) role in Adam’s supposed death has been explained. Now, that character is at the center of a death storm as well. Fallout from that mystery will play directly into a massive storyline that might cause the foundations of the internet to overload. Hey, this is a soap opera. So no excuses are offered for intentional hyperbole.
Nick’s relationship with Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) has clearly been written in a specific direction. Chelsea will soon learn that Adam’s brother (and her boyfriend) has withheld information from her about Victor’s role in her husband’s seeming second demise.
Having her trust betrayed, Chelsea will then blurt out Christian’s paternity truth. At that point the needed plot path will have been paved for Adam’s return. And this revival will be like no other in recent memory, due to the ginormous anticipation level that’s been established.
Fierce reaction and subsequent speculation has enveloped Muhney’s odyssey since 2013. Soap fans of all stripes recall that he was released from his contract in December of that year. His final scenes were shown in January 2014.
Save for a few paid gigs, fans have mostly followed Muhney’s career through his engaging social media posts. Those efforts proved to be very savvy, as Muhney’s connection with the masses demonstrated continuing popularity with a wide fan base.
More than three years later and after countless social media battles were waged between Muhney’s fans and detractors, who convinced themselves that their theories represented fact, the greatest soap opera revival of the twenty-first century is about to take place.
