Who Is Chance Chancellor – Young and the Restless Spoilers Recast Ahead?

The last mention of Chance Chancellor, prior to these new Y&R spoilers, was a few years back when we heard he was hiking with his dad in the Himalayas. Chance’s father is Phillip Chancellor III. And Chance’s real full name is Phillip Chancellor IV. Although Chance was born in 1988, at the age of 11, the show did a SORAS (soap opera rapid aging syndrome) and bumped him to an adult. Then, John Driscoll played the role.

Chance Chancellor’s parents are Phillip Chancellor III, last played by Thom Bierdz. His mom is Nina Webster (Tricia Cast). You may recall that Phillip III faked his death and stayed away because he figured out he’s gay. When Cane Ashby (Daniel Goddard) first came to town, he lied and said he was P3. That ruse went on for years. As for Chance, he came back as an adult and a soldier in 2009, remind Young and the Restless spoilers history.

Y&R Spoilers: Is He Working With Amanda to Take Devon’s Fortune?

When grown up Chance Chancellor first came back to Young and the Restless, spoilers recall he was fresh from the war in Iraq. Once back, he found out about P3 faking his death. Chance took a job at the Genoa City PD with his stint in the Army done. Back then, he fell for Chloe Mitchell (Elizabeth Hendrickson) and they each proposed to one another. Then, he cheated and wrecked their romance.

Later, Chance Chancellor was shot “dead” in the line of duty and that seemed to be the end of him. So why are Y&R spoilers conjuring him now? Turns out he faked his death and went into Witness Protection but not before his dad and mom got to say goodbye. Later, he came out of hiding and took another government job. But now, Young and the Restless spoilers confirm he was in Vegas with Adam Newman (Mark Grossman).

Is Chance Chancellor Coming Back to Young and the Restless?

The latest Y&R spoilers info has Amanda telling the GC locals that she’s repping Chance Chancellor, but so far, no one’s seen him. And more importantly, when the other version of Kay’s will is read, it looks like Chance fares no better than last time. In fact, it’s Cane that gets the billions – not Devon and not Chance. But there’s still questions about why Chance Chancellor brought this forward and where he found the will.

Since Cane’s a known con man, maybe he’s in on this with Chance, hint Young and the Restless spoilers. Either way, fans wonder whether there’s a recast or Y&R will back John Driscoll. Or maybe it’s a name drop only but that seems a long shot. Know you know the basics on Chance in case you forgot. And now it’s a waiting game to see when and if he pops back up on Y&R on CBS weekdays.
