The Young and the Restless (Y&R) Spoilers: Abby Faces Future Alone – Chance Return Or Recast Isn’t Happening?

The Young and The Restless: Abby Newman Abbott Chancellor (Melissa Ordway)

The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers and updates tease that Abby Newman Abbott Chancellor (Melissa Ordway) will retain her four-part name for now. But a day could come, as soon as this year, when the Chancellor moniker will be dropped.

Donny Boaz (Chance Chancellor) surprise exit from the cast came at a very unusual time. If this departure was planned, then a retrospective look at Chabs recent history is clearer.

Assuming Y&R intended to write the Chance character out, then the writing staff was planning this type of sudden disappearance. Some buzz indicates that Y&R might be cutting the budget. If that’s true, then other actors would seem likely to go soon too, as one actor’s salary drop wouldn’t represent true cost-cutting.

The Young And The Restless Spoilers – Chabs Paused Or Stopped

Chabs was one of the show’s top feel-good couples. As of now, it seems like the total love match, happy engagement, joyful wedding, and even good-sport honeymoon misadventure was a setup.

Life can’t be super smooth in the daytime because drama would be lacking. The intent is to present a conflict and then deliver a good ride through to a satisfying conclusion.

In the case of the Chabs’ arc, the final chapter might be the baby question. Will Abby go through with surrogacy, or wait for Chance to return?

Chance Chancellor Gone Indefinitely?

Boaz offered public statements that included what he was told by Y&R. Chance will not be killed off and the character won’t be recast.

The Young and The Restless could have told Boaz the truth, with that being the current regime’s feeling as of now. But if so then something out of the ordinary happened.

Shows and actors aren’t supposed to detail the future because then fans know what’s coming. In this situation, they would have been knowingly told that Chance will remain on an indefinite government assignment. And Justin Gaston (Chance), who filled in for Boaz while he was out with the virus, won’t become the replacement. Why not could be asked when it comes to hiring Gaston on a full-time basis.

The Young And The Restless Updates – Starting Over Once Again

Abby finally thought she found Mr. Right and she did. Then, just after getting married and having her new husband agree to a surrogacy plan that wouldn’t even include him, Chance vanishes?

Whether the departure of Chance was planned or not, Abby will eventually have to decide whether to pursue the Chabs baby plan. She might also have to start all over again if she ever receives a Dear Abby, I’ve met someone else letter.
