Recently, Darin Brooks was doing double duty with acting roles. In addition to playing Wyatt on The Bold and the Beautiful, he appeared on Apple TV’s Amber Brown. Now, the fate of the latter series has been announced. The news could mean Brooks will have more free time to commit to B&B when it comes time for Wyatt to take center stage once again.

Some B&B pals wrote supportive messages on Brooks’s Instagram post.

Amazing talent. Proud of you babe! Onward ❤️❤️❤️.”
