‘Young and the Restless’ Spoilers: Kerry, Tessa & Rosales Family Exit Packing to Go? New Writer Makes Big Changes

Young and the Restless spoilers promise big changes. Lola Rosales (Sasha Calle) and brothers Arturo Rosales (Jason Canela) and Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso) could be cut. Scheming Mia Rosales (Noemi Gonzalez) could also be in trouble. Plus, Kerry Johnson (Alice Hunter) exits soon and things don’t look good for Tessa Porter (Cait Fairbanks).

Current storylines lean towards exits for one or many of these characters invented by the former showrunner. Is new writer Josh Griffith about to do a clean sweep of new characters? Take a look at what’s happening on the CBS soap and why he may be ready to shake things up. Should Lola Rosales, Rey Rosales, and Arturo Rosales get out their boxes and packing tape?

Young and the Restless Spoilers: Kerry Johnson Confirmed Out – Tessa Porter’s Fate Shaky

Kerry Johnson’s time in Genoa City ends soon, say confirmed Y&R spoilers. That’s one of fired showrunner Mal Young’s characters pushed into the cast. Many fans are frustrated that the British writer created many new characters then used them to shove out legacies like Paul Williams (Doug Davidson), Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson), and even Victor Newman (Eric Braeden).

There’s also Tessa, Mariah Copeland’s (Camryn Grimes) girlfriend whose current story could see her sidelined at Y&R. Some fans love the pair and some don’t care for it. As it is, even Mariah and Tessa commented recently that they are the most boring couple in town. The fact that they are lesbians is their sole interesting attribute is a frequent fan sentiment.

Now, with Tessa Porter charged with blackmailing the cover-up crew, she might be on her way out! Discovering JT Hellstrom (Thad Luckinbill) didn’t die won’t help. His survival is irrelevant to her criminal case, so she could still be sent off to prison. Plus, with no other gays in Genoa City, they can’t even love triangle. In contrast, Days of Our Lives stocks its cast with several gay characters to allow for spicier plots.

Y&R Spoilers: Mia Rosales and Cheating Arturo Rosales Could Be Axed

Given the current Young and the Restless storylines, new characters include Mia Rosales and Arturo Rosales could be cut easily. First, there’s Mia Rosales. She told Rey Rosales she’s pregnant but was lying at the time. Then, a recent flashback showed Mia cheated (again) with Rey’s brother Arturo Rosales. So really, Mia might be pregnant.

If Mia is mother to the other brother Arturo’s baby, that’s a mess Rey won’t want. The writers could send Mia Rosales packing with Arturo Rosales. He confesses to Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway) about the infidelity. It doesn’t seem likely she’d be happy to find out fiance Arturo bedded Mia – particularly if that woman is now preggo. Arturo and Mia could leave Y&R to have their child elsewhere.

Young and the Restless Spoilers: Rey Rosales – Will He Stay or Go?

Of the four Rosales family members, it seems Rey Rosales and Lola Rosales have the best chance to stick around on Y&R. Rey betrayed Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) but still feels the draw to him. Josh Griffith might be writing a Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow), Sharon, and Rey Rosales love triangle to spark once she’s out of this endless JT plot. Rey’s chemistry with her is impressive.

One thing that’s for sure is that with Paul back as Chief of the GCPD, Rey needs to work for him — not the other way around. Young cut Doug Davidson and fans raged, so this return is huge. But perhaps Rey and Paul will collaborate at work. There’s also the fact that Jordi Vilasuso is a soap fan-favorite, so perhaps Young and the Restless will keep Rey Rosales around.

Y&R Spoilers: Will Lola Rosales Take Her New Liver and Go?

One sign from Young and the Restless spoilers that Lola Rosales might exit is that Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) consummated his arranged marriage with Summer Newman (Hunter King). Fans were expecting Kyle to play polite with his new wife since he clearly loves Lola Rosales. But Kyle bedded his new wife and gave her a honeymoon to remember.

Soon, Lola Rosales heals after Summer goes under the knife to give her liver. So Lola could stick around and fight for her man or take her new organ and go. If Lola sticks around, they could dawdle along in a love triangle. But since Summer has complications soon, that might draw Kyle closer to his wife since it’s his fault she ever went under the knife. Lola Rosales may run away healed but hurt out of GC.

Who Will Be Cut on Y&R?

Clearly, Young and the Restless’ new team drew a line in the sand after Mal Young was fired. They seem to be in clean-up and recovery mode now. Ashley is back soon as is Paul. Victor is back at the center of things after a back-burnering too. It sure seems they are getting back to the glory days of the CBS soap. And that means cutting back cast.

Kerry’s gone, Tessa’s on the bubble and there are more Rosales’ members on-screen than the legacy families it seems. With fans furious at Mal Young for sidelining their beloved Abbotts and Newmans, no doubt the dynamic is shifting. But when the dust clears will we see Rey Rosales, Mia Rosales, Arturo Rosales, Lola Rosales, Kerry Johnson, and Tessa Porter again? Or are they heading for the exit on Y&R?
