Doug Davidson will be returning to The Young And The Restless (Y&R) as Police Chief Paul Williams on November 12 and again in mid-December. The actor announced the news on his Twitter account in response to a fan’s query.
“12th of November and the 17th and 18th of December I think,” Davidson posted. “Beyond that, I don’t know.”
His last appearance on the sudser was on September 10, when he and Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso) arrested Zoe Hardisty (Anna Grace Barlow) for spiking the Sangria punch at the Grand Phoenix hotel opening.
Fans were thrilled when Davidson returned to Y&R this past March. He had announced in September 2018, as reported by Fame10, that he’d been let go after playing the character for 40 years on the soap. At the time, the news stunned longtime viewers.
After Executive Producer Mal Young was let go in December 2018 and writer Josh Griffith took over the reins, many changes were made, including bringing back fan favorites like Michelle Stafford, who portrays Phyllis Summers, and Melissa Claire Egan, who plays Chelsea Lawson.
Davidson has been on the Y&R since 1978 and has had multiple Daytime Emmy nominations since then. He won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in 2013.
What will Paul’s return mean for the characters of Genoa City? Could Chelsea’s recent actions come back to bite her, and Paul will arrest her for money laundering? Stay tuned to Y&R to find out!
