Is Hunter King Leaving ‘Young and the Restless’ – Summer & Kyle Over Already?

Young and the Restless spoilers ask, is Hunter King leaving Y&R? If so, then Summer Newman and Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) may be over before they re-start. Here are some reasons to worry about the fate of “Skyle” and whether Hunter might be leaving the CBS sudser again.

Is Hunter King Leaving Young and the Restless?

The first thing to know is that the Y&R actress landed a lead in a promising new pilot. Prospect is a comedy at ABC. The Summer Newman actress will be the lead in this throwback Western-style comedy. She’ll play a schoolteacher that heads out West only to find out she’s teaching rough ranch hands.

Remember, Young and the Restless lost Hunter King before and had to decrease her visibility as Summer Newman. They moved her from contract to recurring, and she was rarely seen. That was when she was on Life in Pieces. Now, this is a show with Hunter King as the lead, so she may leave.

Right now, Prospect is just a pilot meaning it may not get picked up for production for a full season. But if it does, that means Hunter King won’t be available for full-time work at Young and the Restless. With that in mind, are the Y&R writers already preparing Summer Newman’s exit?

Y&R Spoilers: Summer Newman & Kyle Abbott Destined to Flop?

Young and the Restless spoilers say that fans of “Skyle” may be disappointed in the coming months. Plus, the latest leaks from behind the scenes at the CBS soap point to a Lola Rosales’ (Sasha Calle) pregnancy. And if the storyline goes as predicted, Summer Newman tosses him back to her.

Because Young and the Restless spoilers tell us that Summer doesn’t want the complications that come with Kyle being with her while raising a child with his ex.  Also, fans are frustrated with the writing regime and their sloppy plots. So, Summer Newman and this new Kyle romance may be part of that.

Right now, Kyle’s at Summer’s side, supporting her on Young and the Restless. Spoilers say he’ll hang tough for her while her family’s in crisis and her aunt’s in the hospital. But once that little bit of drama winds down, what’s next for Summer Newman and her reunited relationship?

Young and the Restless: Stage Set for Summer Exit for Hunter King’s New Project?

Y&R spoilers hint that Kyle and Summer Newman’s revived romance might go kaput soon. With Hunter King looking at outside projects – and finding a new one as the lead – they don’t seem destined to make it. So, that means either “Skyle” splits – or leaves town together.

However, there’s no word of Young and the Restless and Michael Mealor parting ways. And, with Summer Newman out of the way, they can throw Kyle into a love triangle with Lola and Theo Vanderway (Tyler Johnson). And if there’s a who’s the baby daddy plot, that seems likely.

So, enjoy Kyle and Summer for now. Because of her pilot’s picked up, then Summer Newman and Hunter King might once again leave Young and the Restless. If it works out like her last prime time deal, she could step back to recurring with occasional appearances on CBS daytime. We’ll have to see.
