‘Young and the Restless’: Eric Braeden Confirms Victor Return – Shows Off New Work Haircut [See Pics]

Young and the Restless spoilers confirm Eric Braeden is back as Victor Newman and shoots scenes soon at the CBS soap – he even got a new haircut for his return. See the before and after photos, plus his scruffier quarantine look he rocked a few weeks ago. Get ready for brand new Y&R episodes, and we’ve got details.

Eric Braeden Back as Victor Newman on Young and the Restless – See When

A week ago, Y&R actor Eric Braeden shared a video of a stair-climbing workout with a grim message for Victor Newman’s enemies. He warned, “get ready for my come back,” but who did he caution? Hilariously, the actor aimed it at Jack, Adam, and “Billy Boy.”

If that’s a Young and the Restless spoilers tease, then Victor might gun for Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson), Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman), and Adam Newman (Mark Grossman). Of course, Victor Newman buried the hatchet with Jack – but Billy and Adam might be in trouble.

The photos below are NOT of Eric Braeden’s most recent, return-to-work haircut. Instead, that’s the Young and the Restless Victor actor with a wild quarantine hairdo that he had to tame over a month ago. But now, Eric’s getting another trim as he heads back to work.

When Will New Y&R Episodes Be Back on the Air?

Young and the Restless spoilers hint it’ll be about four to six weeks before new episodes hit CBS daytime. Next week, Bold and the Beautiful airs their first new episode on Monday, July 20 – and they shot first episodes about four weeks prior.

We’d expect Young and the Restless runs a similar time table from tape to edit to airing. However, since Y&R’s a larger soap with more actors and storylines, it might take them longer to get new episodes ready. When they do, expect to see Eric Braeden front and center as Victor Newman.

So, what’s happening with Victor in Young and the Restless new episodes? We’ve got some ideas. Clearly, Victor Newman should help Adam work through the disturbing revelation that he killed a man back when he was just a kid. That could be a big Adam-Victor bonding moment.

Victor Actor Ready for Return to Young and the Restless

With Y&R back taping this week, Eric Braeden confirmed he’s back to work soon. And, that means we should see Victor Newman in some of the first scenes of new Young and the Restless episodes. You can bet Victor deals with unfinished business with Adam.

Plus, Victoria Newman’s (Amelia Heinle) back in new scenes on Young and the Restless, our inside source says. So, we’ll see more of her daddy issues and jealousy when Victor gets closer to Adam. To get ready for the new scenes, Eric went for a haircut to get his Victor Newman style back.

You can see the before and after pics above of the Young and the Restless veteran. His “before” hair was just a little shaggy, grown out after his big quarantine trim. But now, Eric looks ready to step back in as Victor Newman, looking suave. He said that’s his “final haircut” before he’s back on Y&R to work.
