In what looks to be a move that has been a long time coming, Daytime Confidential is reporting that Burgess Jenkins is out as Billy Abbott at Y&R and that the show is recasting the role again.
Jenkins followed David Tom, who took back the role he originated from Billy Miller, after the three-time Daytime Emmy winner decided to depart the CBS Daytime number one soap opera.
According to the DC post: Jason Thompson, who has now made his decision to exit General Hospital, could be a leading contender for the replacement, but the series is moving forward with a nuBilly no matter if Thompson could be a potential recast or not.
No official confirmation from Jenkins at this time, or the CBS soap, but clearly there are definitely things being shaken-up on the daytime canvas this November.
