It’s been more than two years since Justin Hartley left The Young and the Restless and Adam Newman allegedly perished in an explosion. With no body found, fans have been waiting all this time for Adam to show up again at some point. After all, he’d died before.
Well, it looks like that wait is finally over. According to Soap Opera Digest, YR is currently looking for an Adam recast, which can throw all of Genoa City into a tizzy.
Last week, Soap Hub speculated that perhaps Katie’s buddy in the walls is not JT after all, but her Uncle Adam. Nick, Victoria, Nikki, and Victor just think it’s JT because who else can it be? (A lot of people, folks, you’re on a soap.)
Plus, if it’s JT, then they know Christine can’t pin a murder wrap on Victor. But, wouldn’t Katie have recognized JT seeing as he was living with her till less than a year ago. She might not remember her uncle who she hasn’t seen since she was a toddler.
The possibilities on who could play the next Adam seem absolutely endless. Soap Hub will keep you informed as we know more — and maybe even offer our own suggestions.
