It’s a big day in Genoa City, folks. That’s because on the Wednesday, December 7th of the top-rated soap, The Young and the Restless, viewers will get their first taste of the new writing regime scripts under new head writer Sally Sussman and executive story consultant, Kay Alden.
Of course, as fans of the iconic series know, Sussman and Alden have both previously written at Y&R at different points in their distinguished soap careers. Viewers have hight hopes and expectations that under Sussman the show may return to some of its classic storytelling roots, feature those characters who should be the main focus and thrust of the show, and offer some compelling twists and intriguing romantic entanglements.
First up today, Sussman and team offer up a return to the famous Abbott dining room table where the children have their breakfast, with loving memory to the late patriach John Abbott (Jerry Douglas). In addition, looks like Jill (Jess Walton) and Billy (Jason Thompson) have a chat about Jack, as Billy and Jack’s (Peter Bergman) fractured brotherly relationship is spotlighted in the preview clip posted by the CBS Daytime series. Be on the lookout for some Michael (Christian LeBlanc) and Lauren (Tracey E. Bregman) moments too that the show has been lacking for some time in featuring this longstanding duo, and more with the fallout from Victoria (Amelia Heinle) and Travis’ (Michael Roark) break-up. Plus, Nick (Joshua Morrow) is in the thick of things as well!
Watch the teaser for today’s Y&R after the jump. Then, let us know you if you are excited to see what Sussman and company have in store for you!
