‘Young and the Restless’: 5 Sharon Newman Plot Predictions for New Episodes

Young and the Restless will be back to work soon, and Sharon Newman‘s (Sharon Case) is one of the first characters with scenes scripted. We’ve also heard that the writers are drastically changing storylines and who’s coupled with whom. With that in mind, we’ve got five big plot predictions for Sharon once new episodes return.

#1 Sharon Newman Tells Adam Newman About Her Cancer on Young and the Restless

A leak from behind the scenes at Y&R told us Sharon Newman has scenes with Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) that are among the first when they return. Reportedly, Adam learns at last that Sharon’s sick and her life is on the line. No doubt, he’s floored by this shake-up

Young and the Restless spoilers hint he’ll run to her side. But, you can bet Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) doesn’t want him there. He’s another character in the new scenes filmed when they return. And neither will Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso). Plus, there’s the question of “Shey.”

Young and the Restless: Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso) - Sharon Newman (Sharon Case)

#2 Rey Rosales Called Away – Amicable Split on Y&R

The Young and the Restless insider said that the writers plan to split up everyone, except for Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) and Victor Newman (Eric Braeden). Plus, there’s chatter that Rey may be written out of the daytime drama – although we’re waiting to hear if it’s a short or long-term exit.

So, Young and the Restless could script a family emergency that draws Rey away from Sharon Newman. If his family needs him in Miami, Sharon will let him go. He’s not a cheater, so if they split, it should be amicable on the CBS soap.

#3 Near-Death Crisis With Breast Cancer on Young and the Restless

Also, we’d expect Sharon Newman’s story arc with her breast cancer to intensify. The writers promised they’d take their time and do it realistically. So, Sharon faces surgery soon and then possibly chemo and radiation. Y&R should do it all – the hair falling out, nausea, etc.

Young and the Restless might also take Sharon Newman’s disease to the near-death point, so it’s touch-and-go with her loved ones terrified they’ll lose her. There’s no exit chatter about the character, so we expect an eventual recovery and remission, not her death. But there’s a lot more to come for Sharon in this story.

#4 Adam & Sharon Re-Spark at Her Lowest Point

Young and the Restless chatter from behind the scenes hint at a “Shadam” reunion. First, there’s the info on most couples splitting. Second, there’s a lot of love between Sharon Newman and Adam that went unexplored. We heard producers caved to Melissa Claire Egan’s demands for “Chadam” and that’s why the “Shadam” storyline ended abruptly.

However, things shifted in the writers’ room on the Young and the Restless hiatus. Now, we anticipate Chelsea Newman gets back with Nick. And Adam pursues Sharon Newman. Depending on the timing, he might be there for Sharon at her worst moment in her cancer battle.

#5 Sharon Rises Like a Phoenix from the Ashes on Y&R

Young and the Restless leaking info also points to Sharon Newman surviving her cancer crisis and coming out of this strong. She’ll recover her health and perhaps a long lost love. Just as Sharon survived her mental health ordeal, we expect the same thing, but it’ll take months to happen.

Young and the Restless missed out on May sweeps because of the COVID crisis. So, we think they’ll go really big for November sweeps. That could be when they reunite Sharon Newman with her past love – and when her cancer’s at its scariest. We’ll share more info as we get it.
