The week of May 28, 2018
After a year and a half absence, Hunter King is heading back to Genoa City as Summer Newman.
The actress last aired in December 2016, when her character left college and took off to travel around the world. At the time, King had been upped to series regular on Life in Pieces and left to focus on the hit comedy.
With the primetime show now on hiatus, the powers-that-be at Y&R worked King into their summer storyline plans. She begins airing in June.
The soap has put out a pair of casting calls. One is for an actress in her early 20s to portray Sofia, a character is described as beautiful, independent and ambitious.
The show is also looking for an actor in the 30 to 40-year-old age range to play the strikingly handsome Carlos. Both roles are slated to begin filming in mid-June.
The Young and the Restless (YR) airs weekdays on CBS. Check your local listings for air times.
