The Young and the Restless preview video for next week’s episodes of the CBS show celebrates the Winters family.
Oh yes, one of Genoa City’s most beloved families will be front and center. It is another nostalgic treat for fans as CBS continues with classic Y&R theme weeks.
The Winters family tree
The Winters family is the core African American family on the daytime drama. Neil (Kristoff St. John) was the patriarch of the family until he died in 2019. Malcolm (Shemar Moore) is Neil’s younger brother. The two had a loving, but turbulent relationship, mostly due to fighting over sisters Oliva (Tonya Lee Williams) and Drucilla (Victoria Rowell).
Neil and Dru were married two times. Oliva was married to Malcolm and Nate Hastings (Nathan Purdee). However, some partner swapping between Olivia, Malcolm, Dru, and Neil happened at times.
Dru and Neil are parents to Lily (Christel Khalil) and son Devon (Bryton James). It was later proved that Malcolm was Lily’s biological father as a result of a one-night-stand he had with Dru. She considered Neil her father until the day he died.
Devon is a foster child that Neil and Dru eventually adopted. Despite meeting his biological father, Tucker McCall (Stephen Nichols), as an adult, Neil will forever be Devon’s father. He continues to make sure Neil’s legacy lives on today.
Lily and Devon are both currently living in Genoa City. She has two children with ex-husband, Cane Ashby (Daniel Goddard), who are young adults and not on CBS show at the moment.
