The Young and the Restless C&G News
Who’s coming and who’s going from The Young and the Restless (YR)? Are any favorite performers from yesteryear returning to the daytime drama, this week, or in the near future?
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 November 30, 2020
Could a member of the Rosales family be heading back to Genoa City? Jason Canela, who played Arturo Rosales from 2018 to 2019, made a cryptic post on Instagram that included a photo of himself standing outside the show’s CBS studio complex.
Canela last appeared on the soap, when Arturo attended his sister Lola’s (Sasha Calle) wedding to Kyle (Michael Mealor). With the character’s brother Rey’s (Jordi Vilasuso) nuptials to Sharon (Sharon Case) set for New Year’s Eve, another visit could be on the agenda. Plus, the timing of the photo would coincide with production.
The fact that Canela has since removed the post from his Instagram feed only adds more fuel to the fire. Stay tuned…
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 Paul Williams’ (Doug Davidson) heroism to the adorable love story of Kyle (Michael Mealor) and Lola (Sasha Calle), YR knows how to entertain and keep fans coming back for more. Sadly, times are shifting and daytime soap operas are shrinking.
Bringing the Drama
It is one of only four remaining 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.
