Why Was Donny Boaz Let Go?
There was a shocking shakeup on The Young and the Restless this week. Actor Donny Boaz confirmed the news that he was leaving the show. By revealing that news, he reveals that Chance wouldn’t be killed off or recast. Instead, he will simply be gone.
Some more reports reveal that more cast cuts are on the way to the soap opera, as reported by SoapDirt. The latest viewership reports saw a fall of about 5,00,000 viewers for the soap opera. Soaps, on the whole, have suffered a lot since the hiatus and the retuns. So, it is possible that more actors will be let go from the soap opera soon.
The Young and the Restless: More Actors Are Exiting
More reports say that Lauren Fenmore might be the next to let go. Right now, he is involved with a plotline alongside Sally Spectra. Gloria Bardwell is at risk too. With that said, Lauren only popped on the soap opera now and then.
Last year there were some rumors that Sasha Calle would exit her role as Lola Rosales. That turned out to be a rumor that came and went away. But now, with Tyler out of the series, it is possible Lola might be out too. Budget cuts are a major reason for all these exits. The ratings of the show have also dropped.
Not just actors, there are speculations that the head writer, Josh Griffith, will also be changed soon. When Griffith first came into the soap opera, all fans were pretty excited about what he would bring to the table. But now, there have been a number of complaints about the storylines.
There are a number of unsorted storylines going on in the soap opera. This is something that fans don’t seem to like. The latest The Young and the Restless spoilers suggest that Shadam will again become Chadam. The writers do not seem to understand what they want to do with Adam’s love life. Not just that, newlywed Abby also now husbandless with Chance Chancellor out of the town.
These shakeups can indeed change a lot on the soap opera. We will keep you updated with all the news about the show as it surfaces. So, you stay tuned. As for Boaz, he already has seven projects and has even started working on them. So, that is good. The Young and the Restless airs on CBS all weekdays.
