12 Y&R Characters Fans Are Desperate To See Make A Comeback
There’s nothing worse than having your favorite soap opera character die, vanish, leave town, or simply get written out of storylines. The only good news is that comebacks and returns can create a buzz like no other in the land of daytime drama and most characters don’t stay away for that long, even if they die off in some crazy fashion. Below are 12 Young and the Restless (Y&R) characters that fans are desperate to see make a comeback.
13. Dylan McAvoy
It hasn’t even that long since Dylan left Genoa City and his wife Sharon behind, much to many fans’ dismay. As most know, the actor who played McAvoy (Steve Burton) jumped the Y&R ship and headed back to his old soap opera stomping ground, General Hospital. Burton made an explosive return as Jason Morgan on that show; however, fans still miss him and hope for the day he makes an explosive return back to the Y&R.
11. Ronan Malloy
The tough cop with a heart of gold heated things up in Genoa City from 2010 to 2012, as Nina Webster’s illegitimate and long-lost son. He’d have some steamy affairs along the way with Phyllis Summers, Chloe Mitchell, and Heather Stevens. Sadly, Ronan was simply written off the show without a proper goodbye and there are many Y&R viewers who would love to see Malloy come back.
10. Chance Chancellor
Speaking of Ronan, Y&R fans miss his equally handsome half-brother Chance. Chance was the perfect man: handsome, great heart, solid moral and values system, and looked incredible in a uniform. He still has plenty of roots in Genoa City and a return to the show would certainly add a little spark to the Y&R. Plus, who knows? Abby Newman is single and in dire need of a little romance.
9. Nina Webster
If we are talking about a Chance and Ronan return, why not bring the entire family back and have Nina join them? Nina has a long history in Genoa City, plenty of friends, and would be welcomed back with open arms by Y&R fans. With over three decades (on and off) with the show, she’s established quite a following and many would love to see her return.
8. Heather Stevens
With all his children out of Genoa City, Paul Williams could use some family in the little town right now. Could this signal a return from Heather Stevens? Right now, she’s shacked up with Daniel Romalotti and his daughter Lucy, somewhere in Georgia, but that could all change in a blink of an eye. Heather is certainly a character many fans would love to see come back to the Y&R.
7. Drucilla Winters
It’s been over a decade since Dru fell off that cliff and plummeted to her death; however, long-time Y&R fans still yearn for her return. Her better half Neil has never really been the same (in the love department) since she left and because her body was never officially found, writing her comeback would be a soap opera synch.
6. Delia Abbott
Sadly, Delia Abbott is one of those soap opera characters who will more than likely never return, unless in a ghost/dream form. However, this doesn’t mean that Y&R fans don’t still miss her very much and wish she could return. The little girl was smart, funny, feisty, and sweet. Moreover, the car accident storyline that killed her really touched the hearts of many Y&R viewers.
5. Patty Williams
Patty Williams is absolutely insane, yet there is something about her character than fans truly connect to. Everyone can see she’s not a terrible person, and most of the bad things she does, she’s either goaded into doing, done out of fear, or due to her mental condition. While someone is about to get axed whenever Patty enters a storyline, when she is around, she makes things in Genoa City interesting.
4. Raul Guittierez
Wasn’t it cool seeing Raul, Mackenzie, Brittany and other Y&R characters return during the show’s recent 45th Anniversary celebration? Sadly, all of these characters were just brought back for a few episodes; however, many fans wish there was a solid reason they all could stay a little longer, especially Raul. It was nice to see the old gang back together again.
3. Fenmore Baldwin
With his parents deeply rooted within the Genoa City community, there’s a very good chance Fenmore Baldwin will return at some point. He was an integral part of the teen scene storylines when BFF Summer was around and with all the family he has on the Y&R, a return is inevitable.
2. Keemo Abbott
Speaking of deep family roots, Keemo is Jack Abbott’s son and the two reunited in the mid-1990s to create a nice little family with Keemo’s mom (and Jack’s love) Luan, and sister Mai (no relation to the Abbotts). Sadly, when Luan died shortly after her and Jack married, a devastated Keemo left Genoa City to head back to Vietnam. A return would really shake up the Abbotts at this point in time.
1. Adam Newman
Adam Newman has already returned from the dead on multiple occasions, what’s another go at it? In all seriousness, this seems unlikely since Chelsea Lawson skipped town recently, but many fans miss the complexity that Adam brings to the plate and any storyline he’s in. He’s a schemer with a heart of gold, with a huge fan base that would love nothing more than to see Newman step back into Genoa City.
