Young and the Restless Spoilers: Eric Braeden Confirms Doug Davidson Back As Paul Williams

Doug Davidson is back as Paul Williams on Y&R. Spoilers say it’s thanks to overwhelming fan support for his return. Longtime show star Eric Braeden, who plays Victor Newman, took to Twitter to share a picture of him with Doug Davidson. Braeden simply captioned the picture, “He’s back!”.

Eric Braeden has repeatedly demanded that Paul Williams return to the character canvas. He also begged online for Young and the Restless to stop writing off veteran and fan-favorite characters. In fact, Braeden didn’t agree with much under Mal Young’s regime, and he let it be known. Braeden wasn’t the only one who was upset that Doug Davidson was written off the show.

Most recently, Melody Thomas Scott, who portrays Nikki Newman, took to social media to express her dream of working with Davidson again. Scott, Braeden, and Davidson have worked together for decades now and always support each other. Fans can rejoice as Doug Davidson is back on set. Paul Williams will be in Genoa City on March 25th on The Young and the Restless.

Y&R Spoilers: New Head Writer Bringing Back Fan-Faves

After the severe disappointment from fans during the undeniably awful Mal Young tenure, it looks like Young and the Restless is trying to make amends. As Josh Griffith, the new headwriter, takes control, he has already begun to recast and revive legendary characters that viewers have longed to see back on their televisions. In fact, Adam Newman (previously played by Justin Hartley) will return to the show as a recast.

It looks like the new writers are attempting to undo the damage that Young did during his regime. Therefore, they could potentially bring back more favorite characters and veteran actors. Fans would love to also see favorites like Eileen Davidson, AKA Ashley Abbott, return to the fold. Now that Doug Davidson has officially returned to Y&R, could other veterans return next? Will this new creative change at the show result in making up for all the mistakes that Young made?
