Adam’s (Justin Hartley) onscreen assumed death left The Young and the Restless fans reeling, but most remain hopeful for a triumphant return. The over-the-top fan favorite character left a huge question mark as to what’s to come for him, and especially for his wife.
No More Adam?
According to Michael Fairman, it looks like the future of Adam is looking pretty bleak. It seems the show doesn’t have any plans in the works to recast the role and even Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea) herself has her doubts about her character’s husband ever coming back.
“I truly don’t think there is going to be another Adam…but who knows,” she teases. “As of now, I don’t think there is a plan to.”
The epic romance between Chelsea and Adam would be hard to top. Not since Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Sharon (Sharon Case) have a couple accumulated such a broad fanbase and garnered so much attention. Their love was one for the ages, and it would be hard to experience that romance again. So, what will the show do now if Chelsea and Adam never reunite?
Will Chelsea Stay a Newman Wife?
Rumors are swirling about a hookup between Nick and his brother’s widow. While Egan didn’t outright deny the speculation, she did say that for a while, the show will respect Chelsea’s grief. If a love story does start up, it’ll happen as naturally as possible with the characters coming together after the sting of Adam’s loss starts to subside. “There is nothing going on with them (Nick and Chelsea) yet, but they are bonding,” she hints.
