The Young and the Restless C&G News
Have any new actors or actresses been cast on the show in contract, recurring, or day-player roles? Are any well-remembered stars from other soaps, past or present, about to join The Young and the Restless fold in surprise new parts? Here’s the latest casting news from the CBS soap.
The week of May 3, 2021
Karla Mosley (ex-Maya, The Bold and the Beautiful) continues her run as Amanda Sinclair. As previously reported, the actress is stepping in for Mishael Morgan, who had to take a temporary leave from the soap while she recovered from emergency eye surgery.
There is good news, however, for fans of Morgan. The actress has already returned to work at the show’s studio and shared a photo from her first day back on the job on Instagram, joking that “It’s like riding a bike!” Viewers can expect to see Morgan back onscreen as Amanda sometime later this month.

The Young and the Restless History
YR made its debut in 1973 and introduced more sexual undertones and younger characters to daytime soap operas. It has outlasted other soaps to become a mainstay for many households. Needless to say, four decades of storylines have kept viewers locked in and wanting more.
From Victor Newman’s (Eric Braeden) family machinations to Rey Rosales’s (Jordi Vilasuso) heroism to the adorable love story of Kyle (Michael Mealor) and Summer (Hunter King), YR knows how to entertain and keep fans coming back for more.
Bringing the Drama
It is one of four soap operas currently on the air. The other three daytime dramas include General Hospital (GH), Days of our Lives (DAYS), and The Bold and the Beautiful (BB). YR airs weekdays on CBS. Check your local listings for air times.
