The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers tease that Doug Davidson will be returning as Paul Williams in the next few weeks. The actor recently revealed key information about his returning storyline, Adam’s comeback, and if he scored a contract. Here’s what you need to know about Paul’s return to Y&R.
Doug said that he was very surprised when they contacted him to return to the CBS soap opera. He thought he would never return, so it was a nice surprise. However, when he was pressed to find out if they gave him a contract, he said no. Apparently, he was told that a contract was not on the table. They would use them as much as they can, without a contract.

The actor said that he would love a Y&R contract, but he is “pretty sure” that it isn’t going to happen. With that being said, he is thrilled to be back.
Returning Storyline Details
As for Paul’s returning storyline, Davidson said that the chief tries to solve the JT (Thad Luckinbill) case in “no time flat.” He wants to clear Nikki Newman’s (Melody Thomas Scott) name. When asked if Paul puts it all together, Davidson could not say. He did reveal his returning storyline will be for a multiple-episode arc. How long, he wouldn’t reveal exactly.
Doug noted that the show will not explain Paul’s absence. They never say “long time no see” or anything. They just act as if he went on an extra long coffee break or took a nap.

Adam’s Big Comeback
Davidson confirmed that Adam is coming back, but it will be “quite a while.” He said they are looking to hire a seasoned soap actor, someone the fans will recognize so it could be a while before they nab the right man.
Doug said that Adam will be returning to Young and the Restless and the storyline will be well worth the wait. But it could be “a few months.”
It sounds like Adam’s return will be during one of the big sweep months. Let’s just hope Y&R isn’t planning on waiting until November sweeps for his big comeback.
Davidson will be coming back to Y&R on Monday, March 25. Are you excited about Paul Williams’ big return?
