According to Soap Opera Digest, the role of Tucker McCall will not be recast as previously reported by Soap Opera Uncensored. The new updated report has that The Young and the Restless had halted there search for a new Tucker last played by Stephen Nichols.
SOD sources related, “The character was reportedly returning for Katherine’s funeral and would then have a story, but an insider says the show decided it would be too distracting to have a new face in the mix.”
So what do you think? Good news that another new face won’t enter the mix on Y&R? Or, do you think it’s not appropriate to not have Katherine’s son part of the mix for his mother’s funeral and a possible fight for Chancellor controlling interests in regards to the company and fortune? Should the show just have Stephen Nichols back for the funeral episodes, if they won’t bring him back full-time? Weigh-in!
