Young and the Restless could be back to work this month, and we heard from an inside source what three actors would be the first filming scenes. The photo above is NOT the reveal – but reminds us that most of the cast is ready to get back to work – and the COVID crisis is blocking them as that fence blocked the Abbotts from their mother!
When Y&R ended, we were at cliffhanger spots with the Kansas murder. There was the cancer drama – and the hotel wars. So, which plots will resume first when Y&R comes back? Here’s what we heard. And FYI – there’s not an Abbott among the list of three we’ve got…
Young and the Restless – Adam Newman Returns With Sharon Newman
We’ve got Y&R spoilers from a source behind the scenes at CBS daytime. They revealed the first three actors back to work and one of the storylines. Two of those listed are Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) and Adam Newman (Mark Grossman). Both make sense given Y&R cliffhangers.
Young and the Restless viewers noted it was strange that no one told Adam that Sharon’s got cancer. Reportedly, that will be one of the first scenes filmed. Once Adam Newman hears Sharon Newman’s got cancer, he’ll be devastated. But will Adam hear it directly from Sharon?
If not, he might hear it from the third Young and the Restless character that we heard is working again soon. No matter how Adam Newman finds out, he’d be sure to race to Sharon Newman’s side. Remember, Adam loved Sharon enough to propose, so, of course, he’ll worry for her on Y&R.
They’re having a Sharon Collins Ex-Husband’s Meeting at Crimson Lights. It would be funny AF if Adam walked in but then again, JG would have to remember Shadam are still friends oh and that he still doesn’t know Sharon has cancer….#YR pic.twitter.com/DLo773OA7w

Y&R Brings Back Nick Newman Too
The third Young and the Restless person confirmed back when shooting resumes is Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow). So, Nick might be the one to spill the beans to Adam about Sharon’s cancer. However, it seems unlikely Nick would do it on purpose. So, Adam might overhear it.
Nick Newman was active in both Sharon Newman’s health storyline and the controversy with Adam Newman on Young and the Restless. Nick was simmering with rage over Adam taking Victoria Newman’s (Amelia Heinle) job. But Victoria just schemed her way back into the CEO spot.
Still, Young and the Restless will bring us more Nick vs. Adam when new scenes return. We heard from the source that Nick conspires to ruin Adam’s wedding to Chelsea Newman (Melissa Claire Egan). But, they were tweaking scripts over the hiatus, so we’ll have to wait and see on that twist.
Who Might Be on the Back Burner for a While on Young and the Restless?
No doubt, Y&R’s bringing back more than just those three characters – Nick, Sharon, and Adam. However, they’ll be changing how they film. There will be fewer extras and no big get-togethers for a while, so the “Chadam” wedding might be a sparse affair. And some actors may be on hold.
CBS may delay the return of anyone over 65 to Young and the Restless. But, they could get creative. Since Eric Braeden’s the oldest cast member, maybe they could have Victor Newman on vacation and dialing in on video chat to talk to Adam and Nick Newman. That would work.
Another concern is the Dina Mergeron (Marla Adams) plot. Young and the Restless was building to the sad end of her Alzheimer’s story. But Marla’s the oldest cast member and likely the last to return. Let’s hope Y&R sets her story aside until she can return – and gives it proper closure.
We’ll have more news soon as the CBS soaps hope to resume shooting new episodes by the end of the month. Then, we should have more Y&R official spoilers (plus juicy leaks from our inside source). And watch for Sharon Newman, Nick Newman, and Adam Newman in the first scenes.
Young and the Restless spoilers roll out soon as they get back to work – check Soap Dirt daily.
