Young and the Restless spoilers hint the new writer brought back JT Hellstrom (Thad Luckinbill) and recast Adam Newman (ex-Justin Hartley) to shake up the Newman stalker story. Josh Griffith could change things for the better.
While the audience doesn’t know who is stalking the Newman family, certain casting changes could signal that things are shifting. The new writer may have scrapped what Mal Young had planned and be writing a much better story with JT and Adam.
Young and the Restless Spoilers: Josh Griffith Cleans Up Mal Young Mess?
Since Mal Young took over Y&R, viewers were upset over the direction the show went. Young wrote off longtime veteran Doug Davidson (AKA Paul Williams) much to fans utter disappointment. And he wasn’t the only veteran and fan-favorite character who left or was fired under Mal Young’s reign.
Young and the Restless fans grew tired of many of the showrunner’s plots. For instance, the JT Hellstrom murder mystery has been dragging for almost a year. Finally, it looks like there might be a silver lining to these slow storylines. Now that Josh Griffith took over, it looks like he might be salvaging the show and some characters.
Young and the Restless spoilers show Doug Davidson is already back on set, and others are soon to follow. One of the most important stories at the moment surrounds the stalker who was making life miserable for the Newmans. Could Griffith fix these stories so that they make sense? This could be why Thad Luckinbill is filming and Adam Newman is finally coming back to Y&R.

Y&R Spoilers: JT Hellstrom & Adam Newman Back
Already under the new writer, things are changing at Young and the Restless. There’s a new Adam Newman coming to Genoa City and the guy believed to be murdered – JT Hellstrom. You can see the pic above that Thad is back on set and filming new scenes. Plus CBS is casting a brand-new Adam!
However, while it looks like Adam Newman is back full-time, JT Hellstrom is likely not. Nothing’s announced about JT’s future — and he is supposedly dead. So, JT could be back to film some flashbacks to try and clear up some of the messy murder details. He could be filming a dream sequence. Or JT might have dug his way out of the grave.
So, that means JT Hellstrom or recast Adam Newman might be the stalker targeting the Newmans. Adam had issues with his family in the past. Plus, JT would 100% pursue revenge for trying to kill him and cover-up the crime. Josh Griffith may change the stalker plot to make it Adam or JT the alleged creeper.

Young and the Restless: JT And Adam Working Together?
Another stunning possibility is that Josh Griffith may be tying JT and Adam’s return. When the youngest Newman son came back before, he had a partner in crime. Perhaps that is what is going on here and the writer may be knitting an explosive plot where the two men — both thought dead — are working together.
Since JT’s body went missing, many assumed he didn’t die. After all, no one even knows where his body is at the moment. Maybe he dug his way out – or maybe recast Adam dug him up if they’re working together. on Young and the Restless. Some fans even suspect Phyllis Abbott (Gina Tognoni) was working with JT since both hate Victor Newman (Eric Braeden).
Nothing is confirmed yet, but with JT Hellstrom and Adam Newman both back soon, the Newman stalker story would be a great place to launch their returns.
