The week of June 11, 2018
There’s a major exit on the horizon. After five years, Mishael Morgan has chosen to leave her role as Hilary Curtis.
Morgan joined the soap back in 2013 and, in time, was thrust into a front burner triangle with Kristoff St. John (Neil) and Bryton James (Devon).
According to reports, the actress’ renegotiations with the soap for a new contract could not be reached. So far, there’s no word as to how her departure will be scripted or a final airdate.
Lauren Woodland returns as Brittany Hodges on Tuesday, June 12. Woodland was a mainstay on the show from 1999 to 2005. She briefly returned for Y&R’s 45th anniversary in March. This time around she’ll be back for a specific story arc.
