The week of October 3, 2022
After making a few appearances via video calls of late, Jess Walton will soon be back live and in person as Genoa City’s Jill Abbott. The veteran star shared the good news on Instagram via a video of herself in the show’s studio parking lot. She also posted a picture with her onscreen son Jason Thompson, who plays Billy Abbott.
Y&R 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.
From Victor Newman’s (Eric Braeden) family machinations to Traci Abbott’s (Beth Maitland) heart to the complicated love story of Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) and Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford), Y&R knows how to entertain and keep fans coming back for more.
The Young and the Restless (YR) airs weekdays on CBS. Check your local listings for airtimes. For more about what’s coming up in Genoa City, check out all the latest that’s been posted on Y&R spoilers, and for an in-depth look at the show’s history, click here.
