While several familiar daytime faces and citizens of Genoa City were just told of their departures due to budget cutting measures and the regime change at the top, there was some good news today for Victor Newman fans!
Daytime Emmy winner and soap icon, Eric Braeden has inked a new deal with The Young and the Restless with Y&R’s production company, Sony, that will apparently keep him on the series for years to come. According to EW.com, Braeden said in a statement, “Very glad we got the negotiations successfully behind us.” The terms of Braeden’s new multi-year deal were not released.
The post also went on to say, “Braeden’s new contract should come as good news to fans who may be worried about new Executive Producer Jill Farren Phelps and how many roles she will cut to save the soap some cash. “
Ok soapers, happy that Eric Braeden is still on board at Y&R? Let us know!
