Young and the Restless spoilers reveal Hunter King (Summer Newman) has been temporarily recast. TV Insider revealed the big news today. Some fans have wanted to see Hunter King leave for a while, but this is only for three episodes and she will be back on Y&R. It can always be a bit confusing when a new actress comes in.
Young and the Restless Spoilers: Who is replacing Hunter King as Summer Newman?
There will be a new Summer Newman in Genoa City for three upcoming episodes of The Young and the Restless. It turns out that Bayley Corman will take over the role. Her first episode will air on October 1. If you feel like you recognize Bayley, she was on Modern Family, Jane the Virgin, and 2 Broke Girls. She will also be on the pilot of the new show All American that is on the CW. It doesn’t sound like she sticks around one show for very long.
Hunter King is on a new CBS sitcom that is called Life in Pieces. She plays the role of Clementine on this show. You can check out a preview for her new role below. Because of this role, she is going to need to miss filming these three episodes. The thing is so far that is all she says that she is missing. If this new show becomes a hit, Hunter King might have to be gone more often. She may even leave her role as Summer altogether. For now, she will be gone October 1-3 and then return on October 4.
What is going on with Summer Newman now?
Summer Newman was gone from The Young and the Restless for a while, but now she is back and causing problems in Genoa City. She has been pursuing Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) and flirting with him all that she can. On top of that, Summer is the reason he has gone back to the bad habit of gambling.
She seemed to give up on it recently and tried to pay her sex bet with Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor), but she might bounce back to Bill soon. After all, Billy Abbott has admitted that he is attracted to her. When Summer Newman came back to GC recently, she was a bit of a different character.
Hunter King’s return brought back a nastier version of Summer. Many fans don’t like the new Summer as well as the original. She now seems very entitled like she is owed something. Maybe the fans would have been happier if they had just kept the character gone. But that isn’t the way they did things on The Young and the Restless.
