Young and the Restless comings and goings predict three big cast changes as they continue filming new episodes of the CBS sudser. All three characters were on Y&R within the last few years – but one requires a recast. So, let’s dig in and look at who we’ve heard is in talks for a Y&R comeback.
Young and the Restless Comings & Goings: Is Crazy Patty Williams Coming Back?
We’ve heard from a source at CBS daytime that Y&R’s looking to bring back Patty Williams (Stacy Haiduk) for another go-round. Patty Cakes is always a nutty bunch of fun, and last time around, she was with Ian Ward (Ray Wise). Then, the madman shipped Patty off to Paris.
But it’s an excellent time for Young and the Restless to invite Patty Williams back to GC. Of course, Haiduk was over at Days in a role, but she exited recently. Plus, they won’t resume filming at NBC until September, so she’s available to reprise her past role as Patty Williams. So, will Patty come back?
It could be because there are many changes ahead in the new Young and the Restless episodes. And the possible return we’ll discuss next has a clear tie to Patty Williams. If this guy comes back, then it makes sense what we’ve heard about the CBS sudser talking about a Patty comeback.
Y&R Comings & Goings Hint Danny Romalotti Return
Our source behind the scenes said that Michael Damian’s in talks to come back to Young and the Restless. It’s been quite a few years since Danny Romalotti was in Genoa City, and his return could shake up things. We’ve also heard couples break-up and shake-up soon on Y&R.
So, if Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford) is single – and Patty Williams returns, then a Danny comeback is explosive on Young and the Restless. Given Danny’s tumultuous past with both, that could be a lot of fun. Plus, if Danny Romalotti Sr. is back – maybe Danny Jr. will come back too.
For now, we’re awaiting confirmation on whether the CBS soap will land Damian, but there are hints. The Young and the Restless alum’s been active with fans lately and retweeting comments about Danny Romalotti’s return and his past with Cricket. So, fingers crossed on Danny.
Recast Dylan McAvoy on Young and the Restless?
The third and perhaps most shocking Y&R casting change we’ve heard is about Dylan McAvoy. Steve Burton last played the role – but he’s committed to General Hospital now. So, we heard they might bring back Dylan, son of Nikki and Paul, with a recast in the role.
Young and the Restless did well with the recast of Mark Grossman as Adam Newman. So, maybe they’ll work magic and hire a new face for Dylan McAvoy. Bringing back Dylan would be interesting for a couple of reasons. First, Dylan’s ex-wife Sharon has cancer.
Second, on Young and the Restless, Dylan McAvoy has a past with Chelsea Newman (Melissa Claire Egan), who might be single soon given all the split chatter. Wait to see, but recasting Dylan would be a thrilling change. And that’s what we heard the network told Y&R to do – shake up the plots.
