The Young And The Restless Rumor: Adam Newman Recast In The Works, What’s Ahead For The Newman Clan?

The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers tease that Adam Newman recast may be in the works. A recent casting call sparks rumors when the description sounded an awful lot like Adam Newman.  If Adam is returning, it would make most of the Y&R viewers extremely happy.

Casting Call Sparks Adam Rumors!

The casting call is for a character Young and the Restless dubbed Jeremy. It’s important to point out that name is probably a fake name. They want someone who is in the 30s to early 40s and who has strong television credit under their belt.  Jeremy is supposed to be drop-dead gorgeous, confident, and career minded.  He is said to stop at nothing to get what he wants.  That sounds an awful lot like Adam Newman, doesn’t it?

If this is indeed Adam Newman’s recast, it will be the fourth Adam recast. Previous actors who played the role were Chris Engen, Michael Muhney, and Justin Hartley.

No Michael Muhney

What this means is Michael Muhney, who previously played the role of Adam Newman, is not going to be rehired.  He has campaigned, as well as his large fanbase, to reprise the role. The network has been apprehensive about rehiring him because he has a turbulent history with the network.

Justin Hartley, who was the last Adam, is currently busy with NBC’s dramedy This Is Us. He left the role after NBC ordered a full season of the show. The show is currently in its third season.

It’s important to point out that this role could be for a new character.  With Josh Griffith in charge of the writing team, it is highly likely it is Adam Newman.  Griffith is the writer who created Shadam by pairing Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) with bad boy Adam.
