Young and the Restless comings and goings leak say that a Chance Chancellor recast comes soon. Y&R viewers will recall that Donny Boaz last played the role. He left the show in February of this year. Now, there’s a casting call for an attractive, fit male in his 30s. The description sounds like Chance – plus a CBS soap leaker says it’s definitely happening.

New Character on Young and the Restless – Sounds a Lot Like Chance Chancellor

The Y&R casting call could be for a new or returning character. The CBS soap said the person likes adventure and is playful. This guy’s also not scared to wear his heart on his sleeve. They want someone that seems all-American. So, while there’s no word if this will be a new persona on Young and the Restless, the leaker says it’s the search to recast Chance Chancellor.

Y&R fans will recall that Chance left on a secret police mission without so much as an in-person goodbye to his family and friends. While he left a note for his wife, Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway), it certainly was not a glamorous departure. Chance Chancellor was simply in Genoa City one day and gone the next.

Young and the Restless fans we unhappy to see Donny Boaz leave the role. So an online petition even circulated in an attempt to bring the actor back. Plus, at the time, Boaz said his Chance wouldn’t be coming back – and would not be recast. He also seemed to be blindsided by the show writing Chance Chancellor out so abruptly.

Abby Newman Reunited with Chance on Y&R

Young and the Restless spoilers tease that an Abby Newman-Chance Chancellor reunion could be in the works. Abby has been lost without her husband. She is lonely and scared as she faces the future without Chance. Even though she has a strong support system, Abby misses her spouse.

Plus, Abby has been forced to face her infertility challenges alone on Young and the Restless. She is making major life decisions on her own. Y&R fans have watched as she gave herself hormone shots. So Abby also had to pick a donor for sperm without Chance’s input. One can only hope that Chance Chancellor will be happy with the choices she has made when he returns.

And given this Young and the Restless comings and goings casting call, we’d expect to see Chance back on the scene in May sweeps. The big question is whether when Chance Chancellor returns with a new face is whether Mariah Copeland (Camryn Grimes) will be pregnant by then. It’s certainly a plotline that demands his comeback.
