‘Young and the Restless’ Spoilers: Adam Newman First Airdate Revealed

Young and the Restless spoilers say Adam Newman is returning to the fold recast with Mark Grossman in the role. Now, it was revealed that the iconic character will return by May 14. As everyone believes that Adam died in a cabin explosion, his comeback will send shock waves throughout Genoa City during may sweeps on the CBS sudser.

Young and the Restless Spoilers: Adam Newman Comes Back to Genoa City

Y&R spoilers reveal Adam Newman returns to town mid-May 14, at the height of May sweeps. The reappearance alone of Adam Newman is sure to bring a lot of viewers in, as the character is a longtime fan favorite. Of course, considering the last time we saw Adam he supposedly died in the big boom at the cabin, his return will probably kick off a ton of new storylines.

Obviously, he’s going to have to explain how he survived the explosion on Young and the Restless. There’s a big possibility that he never died in the first place. This wouldn’t be the first time everyone thought he died in an accident, only to later learn that he lived. He has become quite the pro at this little trick.

His resurrection could bring a lot of questions. If he faked his own death, he might not exactly want to be found. After all, there may have been a reason why he left town and never contacted his family, if this is the case. But Young and the Restless spoilers have only begun to hint how he survived and why he’s back.

Y&R Spoilers: Fan Favorite Characters Return

Adam Newman isn’t the first longtime favorite Young and the Restless character to come back under new writer Josh Griffith. Most recently, Paul Williams (Doug Davidson) returned. As Paul was quietly written off late last year, his reintroduction wasn’t necessarily as big as Adam’s will probably be.

However, fans were quite excited to see Paul again. Of course, they’ll also be excited to see Adam. But these two might not be the only former characters heading back to Genoa City when Mark Grossman premieres as Adam.

As Adam returns, it’s easy to assume that Chelsea Lawson (Melissa Claire Egan) might return. After all, she and Adam have quite the romantic past together. Fans might want to see them come back to town together. However, there has yet to be any official announcement declaring Chelsea’s return, though there have been many rumors yet no official Y&R spoilers.

Young and Restless: Adam’s Return Already Hinted?

While we have about a month until we officially see Adam Newman back on our television screens, it’s very possible that Y&R spoilers will soon reveal more about his return. There are a few storylines that Adam could find himself in when he returns to the fold with his new face, played by Mark Grossman.

There’s the mysterious business that Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) is up to on Young and the Restless, for example. Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) and Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) can’t find Victor anywhere. Plus, he keeps lying to them about where he is and what he’s doing.

Adam could potentially be a part of this storyline, in some way. Maybe the person that Victor keeps meeting up with somehow connects to his son’s return. Regardless, Adam Newman’s reappearance is going to be more than a little dramatic. As Mark Grossman debuts during May sweeps, he’s probably going to come back in a massive way.
