Is Adam Newman Leaving ‘Young and the Restless’?

Young and the Restless new episode may be coming as soon as July – and people are asking about Adam Newman‘s (Mark Grossman) fate. With two murder charges looming against the prodigal son, is Adam in danger of another prison sentence? Here’s the latest on the plot twists surrounding the youngest Newman son – and whether he’ll stick around Genoa City.

Is Adam Newman Leaving Young and the Restless?

Spoilers know Adam Newman’s got trouble ahead. Last we saw, Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) blabbed to Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) that Adam killed someone as a child. Of course, Victor Newman’s (Eric Braeden) furious that Nikki spilled the beans on his son.

Next, Young and the Restless spoilers hint Victoria runs to Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) with the ugly truth – and he publishes it on the new Chancellor Media outlet. Of course, that means Adam might have to face the consequences of that decades-old murder charge in Kansas.

However, Young and the Restless spoilers also know that Adam was just a scared kid when it happened – and didn’t mean to hurt AJ. So, it’s not likely that Adam Newman will leave town over that situation, but it’s embarrassing and yet another mark on his reputation.

Could Black Sheep Newman Son Go to Prison?

If Adam Newman were to leave Young and the Restless over a murder charge, it would be a new one, not that old one in Kansas. There’s still that loose end out there about the guy Adam killed saving Chance Chancellor (Donny Boaz). Presumably, that plot will continue after the hiatus.

Recall from Young and the Restless recaps that two other people now know about that death. First, there’s Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford), but Chance destroyed the recording she made of Adam’s confession. Second, there’s Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway) – and she’s the real problem.

We could see on Young and the Restless spoilers that Abby blabs about the Vegas killing to big sister Victoria since both have a grudge against Adam Newman. If they spill the truth about the man he killed in Sin City, he might have to leave town to avoid prison. We’ll find out more once new episodes are on air.

Is Adam Leaving Young and the Restless?

Many viewers are worried about his fate and keep asking – is Adam out at Y&R? The answer is no. He’s not going anywhere. The CBS soap took their time auditioning actors for over a year. Then, they carefully chose Mark Grossman to pick up where Justin Hartley left off with the role.

Plus, Young and the Restless watchers have embraced Grossman in the role. And that’s despite outrage over a recast. Most fans wanted one of the former Adams to resume the role. So, with fans on board with the new Adam Newman and plenty more plot ahead, he’s staying put.

Fans are also wondering – when will Young and the Restless resume filming new episodes. The backstage chatter from our sources say they hope to return in June. That means fresh episodes on the air in July or August. And Adam Newman should be front and center.
