The Young and the Restless Spoilers: Eric Braeden Blasts Cast Shakeups at Y&R – Delivers Plea for Lost Fan Favorites

The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers reveal that Eric Braeden’s (Victor) got some strong opinions on the CBS soap’s latest direction. The show’s been going through some major cast shakeups, so Braeden finally decided to chime in. He’s not definitely not happy about all the shifts happening behind the scenes.

This isn’t the first time Braeden’s acknowledged the damage at Y&R. Many fans have been complaining on social media, which prompted Braeden to back them up. He’s been interacting with viewers and retweeting comments of frustration. That goes for statements regarding silly storylines and cast members who should’ve been allowed to stick around.

Braeden later made a statement of his own. He tweeted, “I normally don’t express my opinions reg the casting on Y&R! That’s the privilege of those who produce the show! However, this is a time when I have to make an exception!” Braeden seems to feel like enough is enough. He wanted to let Young and the Restless watchers know where he stood on the matter.

A couple weeks ago, Doug Davidson (Paul) informed his fans that he’d seemingly been let go from the show. Braeden decided that when it comes to addressing this issue, it’d be better to do it late than never. He said, “I’m still on vacation, hence my comment comes a little late: to let DOUGIE DAVIDSON GO is an egregious mistake.”

Braeden went on to make a heartfelt “plea to management.” It’s clear that he feels passionate about the future of Paul and other fan favorites at The Young and the Restless. Braeden stated that “we have lost some all time fan favorites! D DAVIDSON has been with the show for, i think, 39 years, and people have loved him!”

The actor brought up Y&R’s decision to cut or reduce screen time for other cast members, too. He mentioned Greg Rikaart (Kevin) and Christian LeBlanc (Michael) by name. Braeden also included Eileen Davidson (Ashley), who made the decision to leave. Any departures right now make it even more important to keep other crucial veteran cast members.

Braeden will finish off his month-long vacation in Germany and return to his role in Genoa City. It sounds like he’s hoping for positive updates when he gets back! The Young and the Restless spoilers say the CBS soap will continue to face pressure, so stay tuned.
