Is Chance on The Young and the Restless coming back to the CBS soap opera? That’s the question viewers keep asking as months go by and the character remains off-screen.
In February, Donny Boaz shocked fans with the news that his contract was not picked up by Y&R. The actor revealed that Chance was being written off the show for budgetary reasons.
It was the last thing viewers expected, especially since Chance and Abby (Melissa Ordway) had just embarked on their surrogacy journey. Now that baby Dominic has been born, there is even more confusion regarding where Chance is and if he will return to The Young and the Restless.
Where is Chance on Y&R?
The writers have explained Chance’s absence by sending him off on a secret FBI mission that, of course, forces him to be out of contact with his family and friends. Abby will receive a message or phone call from her husband a time or two, but that’s it.
Christine (Lauralee Bell) has even been involved in Chance’s top-secret mission storyline by answering questions about his whereabouts for Nina (Tricia Cast) and Abby. As the months go on Abby, has gotten more concerned regarding her husband’s safety.
Plus, she wants him home to experience the joy of parenthood with her. Abby has been keeping a video diary for him, but it’s not the same.
Is Chance on The Young and the Restless coming back?
It’s been a while since viewers had a Chance update, which could mean the writers are gearing up for his return.
Chance has been off-canvas during such a pivotal time for his family, and viewers are over it. Not only did Chance and Abby become parents, but Mariah (Camryn Grimes) was kidnapped while carrying the baby. Ben, aka Stitch (Sean Carrigan), was the culprit, well, as far as fans know.
Oh yes, the timing is right for Chance to come back to Y&R or, at the very least, the beginning of a story to bring him back to Genoa City. According to SoapHub, a casting call went out last spring that sounds an awful lot like a Chance recast.
The casting call indicated the role was a contract one but wouldn’t start until later this year. If it was for a Chance recast, then viewers could see him back onscreen by the holidays.
So, to answer the question, is Chance coming back to Y&R? Only time will tell. The hit CBS soap opera is keeping details of Chance’s future on the show under wraps.
The Young and the Restless airs weekdays on CBS.
No new Chance!!!!!Watch just for the eye candy Donny Boaz.Hes a perfect Chance.Already lost Kyle those two for me were The Young and the Restless.Everybody let them know ……bring back Donny Boaz.!!!
I agree, Bring Chance NOW!!Bull s**t to the budget they got rid of two leading people and a few other’s so there should be enough to bring the REAL Chance back now!!!!
By the time they bring him back the baby will be several year’s old .
WHY DIDN’T YOU. TAKE MARIAHS GIRLFRIEND OFF AND JUST LEAVE STIITCH OFF BUT BRING CHANCE BACK
YES that is great idea.
I strongly agree. Bring back Donny Boaz!
yes i do
NO NEW CHANCE IF DONNY BOAZ DOESNT COME BACK NO ONE SHOULD!!!!
I went on CBS.COM and wrote them to bring Danny Boaz back. Young and Restlessmight as well be “Old”
and Restless now.
Bring Donny Boaz back as Chance. Loved him and am tired of Abby being alone. Have watched this show for 13 years!!! Love it! Sure you
can find a place in the budget!!!!
Bring Chance back with a sever head injury that causes him to be and not be himself. That could bring all kinds of issues.
Bring Donny Boaz back!!! Please. No new Chance. Donny and Melissa have such great chemistry.
I have been watching this soap since its inception. Donny Boaz is the right choice for Abby. I was sorry to see him leave. Please bring him back. Shelia is the one I didn’t want to see come back that was dumb.
Yes, Sheila is a tiresome and predictable choice to continue to bring back. I have a friend in FL who’s going to let me know when she’s gone so I can start watching B&B again!
I agree I won’t watch it until Sheila and Hopes father are gone.
Bring back Chance and can Sally.
Bring back Chance back for sure. Also Summer & Kyle.
Sally is a keeper. Bring back Summer & Kyle. Lauren should retire. She’s beautiful; however, she adds nothing to the story lines. Chance could be recast.
Getting kind of tired of this Y&R doing away of or replacing certain actors that we are all used to. Been watching this soap as long as its been on air and I am getting sort of bored with it.
I love Y&R, I really do, but you guys drag out the BS story lines and leaving us hanging on the really good ones. Please please bring back the ORIGINAL Chance and let him and abby be good for a min before his cop ish throws another monkey wrench in their family plans.
I don’t want a new Chance! Please keep me the original Chance! And bring him back now, because now that the baby is born he should be back with his wife! Thanks
Stop being so parsimonious and bring back Chance (Donny Boaz), Kyle, and Summer. The current cast is getting somewhat long in the tooth and younger blood is needed. End that stupid story line about Sutton Holmes and jettison that group of new characters. PLEASE, no more body doubles storylines. The last one involving Jack was as believable as the tooth fairy. Have the current cast start to respond favorably to Adam’s efforts to change instead of constantly bashing him at every scene. Write more pertinent story lines that deal with current events issues, like what used to be done years ago.
Bring original Chance back! Don’t you dare get another recast. You have no money. Cut a few that have no function anymore; Chloe has very little to do. Kevin is redundant now, Sharon’s husband Rey is absolutely redundant. Nothing to do but glower. We don’t need Chelsea back. Tessa can go on tour for a while and you save money. There …gave you lots of suggestions to get the money to get Chase back and get payed.
I agree with everything you said!
I’ve been watching since day one. I’m ready to quit. Chance needs to come back so there can be a happy family for once.
I agree. Bring Chance back if he will come back. If he won’t come back then recast but please do something soon.
Bring Donny Boaz back. He is a great match with Abby.. Chance needs to return home. Eliminate Tessa if you need budget!! and by the way the birthing scene was so unbelievable, rather hoaky!!!
get rid of Shelia, she is not helping your story line, tired of seeing her crap too.
Hi luv your show. Glad to hear Chance is coming back was hoping your organization would bring back the one that was let go.
I have also noticed Victoria’s hair …. looks pretty rough and dry on ends…Would she consider a shorter haircut?
THE REASON WHY I THINK THIS IS BECAUSE THE FATHER 👨🍼 TO BE SHOULD BE THERE EVERY STEP 👣 OF THE WAY. 🤔 THEY SHOULD HAVE NOT USED A BABY 👶 & IF THERE NOT GOING TO BE A FATHER 👨🍼 TO MAKE A FAMILY 👨👩👧 .
LET ME KNOW IF SOMEONE ELSE IS 💭THINKING 💭 🤔 THE SAME WAY.
Love the show. Been a fan from almost the start. Many, many years. I wish you would just bring back the old Chance. He was really good and good to look at.
I hope they bring back the chance u just let go
I hope they do too. I think he should be here to enjoy his son while he is young and not to miss to much of the young son’s new life.
I want the old chance back.
Why have there been so many new comings and goings on Y&R, but not for a chance’s return. Been watching the show since it started!!
PLEASE BRING BACK DONNY BOAZ HE IS AWESOME WITH MELISSA.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bring back Boaz, please. When will they show Dominic, Stop dragging this out. Enough.
