Breaking: Michael Muhney axed from Y&R


Looks like executive producer Jill Farren Phelps has struck again: Michael Muhney (Adam) has been let go at The Young and the Restless.

The actor tweeted on Tuesday:

I’m so sorry. It breaks my heart to say this, but I was just let go from Y&R. My last day on set is this Thursday. My last air date will be Jan 30th. I’m going to take some private time with my wife & kids, as I am concerned for their well-being… I have 3 final episodes to film, and because they are my last, I will be giving it everything I have. More details to follow… xoxoxo

Muhney’s exit closes a very critical year for The Young and the Restless as the show has come under fire for most of its casting decisions and storylines: from the exits of Michelle Stafford (Phyllis) and Billy Miller (Billy) to the poor handing of Katherine’s (Jeanne Cooper) memorial service, Nikki’s (Melody Thomas Scott) “battle” with MS, the ill-received Dylan McAvoy (Steve Burton) and the death of a child, Delia Abbott.


I got the opportunity to interview Michael a couple of times. First in 2011 and again this past April. Immensely talented actor and a great person. This one stings, you guys…
