The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers tease that there’s some comings and goings news to share. First, we should discuss a recent departure. Tristan Lake Leabu just wrapped up his run as Reed. The move was a shocker since there’s still plenty of J.T. (Thad Luckinbell) drama going on. It’s surprising that Y&R rushed Reed off canvas before any major revelations came out.
Nevertheless, the show apparently thought it was the right call. The Young and the Restless spoilers say there’ll be many other Genoa City residents caught in the fallout, so maybe Reed’s absence won’t be too noticeable. Victoria (Amelia Heinle), Phyllis (Gina Tognoni), Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) and Sharon (Sharon Case) will certainly face their fair share of chaos.
Other Young and the Restless spoilers say Blue Kimble has been offered a contract role. The actor posted the news on Instagram and suggested that he’s excited about what’s ahead. “I’m so blessed to have you all support me on this journey,” Kimble said. “I’m humbled & grateful, and I ask that you keep supporting me. STAY TUNED.”
There’s no official news on who Kimble will be playing, but we’ve heard some recast buzz floating around. Word has it that Kimble could portray Dr. Nathan “Nate” Hastings Jr. We’re also hearing that Kimble’s character could feel a bit of a spark with Hilary (Mishael Morgan). Perhaps he’ll ignite some jealousy in Devon (Bryton James) and shake things up on the CBS soap. Maybe showrunner Mal Young will have him become Nikki’s next boyfriend – since she calls things off with Arturo on this week’s new Y&R episodes, April 30 – May 4.
In other Y&R news, Kelly Kruger (Mac) has booked a part on a Freeform drama. She recently scored a guest spot on The Bold Type, so you may want to check her out. Many Young and the Restless viewers have enjoyed seeing Mac back in Genoa City lately. Kruger also pops up on The Bold and the Beautiful from time to time, so she’s quite familiar to soap fans. Be on the lookout for all Kruger’s new projects!
That’s it for comings and goings. We’ll give you updates as other Y&R details emerge. Stay tuned to the CBS soap and don’t forget to check CDL often for the latest Young and the Restless spoilers, updates, and news.
