Fans have been missing Michael Muhney (Ex-Adam Newman) on The Young and the Restless since December 2013 when he was last seen on-air. The star was fired from the CBS soap opera amidst controversy, but months after he has been gone the fan fervor for him has not stopped.
More recently, Y&R sent out a casting notice for the role of “Aaron Newton” which clearly was the recast for “Adam Newman” and their search had been on-going to fill the void left by Muhney in the pivotal role of the black sheep of the Newman clan.
However there have been rumors, and now an item in this week’s Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, that “Insiders report Michael Muhney could be back in the mix to reprise the role,” and that Muhney was reportedly “spotted at the Y&R studios.”
When pressed about Muhney possibly returning to to the show, A Y&R spokesperson told Digest, “We don’t comment on rumors or contract status.”
So do you think Michael is currently being considered in the mix of actors to play Adam Newman? Do you think he will be back and reprise the role? Or, is this one big red-herring? Comment below!
