The Young and the Restless Spoilers: Michael Mealor Is Back With An Extended Contract

The Young and the Restless comings and goings say that for those who have been missing Kyle Abbott on the small screen, we’ve got good news for you. There are new reports that say actor Michael Mealor will soon be reprising his role as Kyle on the hit CBS soap. What’s more, it looks like the handsome actor has also signed an extended contract with The Young and the Restless which means that we’ll be seeing plenty of him in the coming weeks and months ahead. Here’s what you need to know!

The Young and the Restless Spoilers: Michael Mealor Is Back With An Extended Contract

Soap Opera Digest was the first to report that Michael is making a long-term comeback to The Young and the Restless as Kyle, the son of Jack Abbott and Diane, who is apparently back from the dead. This shouldn’t surprise anyone, as Kyle will be just as shocked to see his mother just like everyone else that his mother is alive. It’s going to be an Abbott family reunion like we’ve never seen before.

Back in September, Michael opened up to Soap Opera Digest about the reason why he decided to leave The Young and the Restless. He admitted admitted that his future relied on his contract negotiations with the producers of the show (as is the case with most daytime television actors). 

Michael put it this way, “My manager and I were working ourselves through it, and I think a couple of weeks into it … we were about to film a scene and, Hunter, correct me if I’m wrong, but it was, “Hey, I’ve got to talk to you about some business stuff.” I didn’t realize she was going through negotiations at the same time, so it kind of turned out to where I spilled everything.”

He continued, “Negotiations are a private thing, and I was like, “Hunter, this is what’s happening….” It’s difficult because you love the show and, you know, all that kind of stuff, and you’re so dedicated to it. I mean, it was my life. We worked 50 weeks a year, four days a week, so it becomes such a piece of your life and everyone there is family.”

So happy Michael Mealor is back as I like the storyline when he went to Italy to be with summer and Harrison . So I hope Summer is BACK too and writers let us enjoy them building family and working to build their company’s for awhile. Cause you know nothing can stay happy in soaps.
Definitely think Adam and Chelsea should be together and build their family life together with Connor as he’s growing up ( love current Connor) and Adam gets involved in father duties like sports with him and not ignore his family. I really like new Adam . He can be cunning but not destructive ,smart but not vindictive . Chelsea fits into his company as designer and they have good chemistry , I think . Rey should stay with Sharon. It’s nice to have her in her own life away from Nick and definitely Adam!!! But, writers need to absolutely give them sparks in their storyline exciting somehow for a pleasant change . They’re dull except for their wedding . Hope Sharon & Adam are over that was beat to death , stale ,boring. Just me.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
