‘Young and the Restless’: Daniel Goddard Says He’s Moving On – Cryptic Tweet Hints Cane’s Fate

Young and the Restless news straight from Daniel Goddard say he’s got to “turn the page and move on”. So, that could mean Cane Ashby is packing his bags to leave Genoa City. Then again… He hashtagged the tweet YR but also included a heart emoji. That put fans into a tailspin wondering what exactly he meant about his fate on the CBS soap.

Young and the Restless Spoilers: Cane Ashby Out of the Building or Daniel Goddard Baiting Fans?

Recent Y&R spoilers reveal Lily Ashby (Christel Khalil) divorces Cane Ashby as she heads out of prison. She also plans to leave town for good. This aligns with chatter from our sources that Christel does not plan on coming back to the show on contract and will pursue other projects. Although the new producer-writer team is bringing back others, Christel seems uninterested.

So, it very well could be that Daniel Goddard is bait and switching fans to get them worked up about him leaving Young and the Restless. Spoilers are wide open for him to rebound with someone else in GC. However, there is always a chance that Cane might be slid onto the back burner. Yet, cutting Cane Ashby from the character canvas would be out of the blue given current efforts to keep long-standing players.

Y&R Spoilers: Other Cast Cuts Are Not Long-Time Characters

Other Young and the Restless spoilers and news had Arturo Rosales (Jason Canela) and Mia Rosales (Noemi Gonzalez) cut from the regular character list recently. Also out the door were Kerry Johnson (Alice Hunter) and all were creations of Mal Young’s writing-producing reign. Also this week, there was talk that another of Mal’s characters, Tessa Porter (Cait Fairbanks) was cut. However, there is no confirmation.

Interestingly, Cait came out on Twitter and said it’s a rumor as did scene partner Camryn Grimes. However, neither said “it’s not true” or “it’s a lie”. So this one may be a wait and see. It’s one thing to push back against a leak and says it’s a rumor. Since, without written or photographic proof – it is just a rumor. It’s another for them to state that it’s not true. So their wording is interesting.

Perhaps one or both will make a firm statement that it is absolutely not true rather than using a vague word. We’ll see. Meanwhile, with all this media attention on cast being cut, it begs the question. Is Daniel Goddard talking about Cane and Lily’s relationship or his own fate at Young and the Restless?

Young and the Restless: Attention Grab or Sign of Things to Come

With exiting actors in the limelight at Y&R, perhaps the actor wanted a little attention on him. He posted a shirtless pic yesterday and then this teaser today implying he’s out. The caption on the tweet (see above) was about overcoming adversity. Not entirely sure what that has to do with his top being off. However… you’ve got to give Daniel Goddard props. That is NO dad bod that Cane Ashby is rocking. He’s looking good.

So, perhaps Daniel Goddard wanted a little fan attention. If so, he certainly got it. But let’s hope he wasn’t working them up for sport. Christel won’t return so Cane Ashby and Lily Ashby are done, right? One site listed a recast of the role but they post false info often, so we shall see. Cane Ashby’s fate – and that of Daniel Goddard – remain unclear on the CBS sudser.
