Is Michael Muhney Returning As Adam Newman? ‘Y&R’ Fans Think His Silence Means Yes!

Soap Operas, Young and The Restless

Michael Muhney has been suspiciously silent of late. There have been some major reasons why he should have been on social media, yet he has been away. Mal Young is no longer the Y&R lead writer, and the show is bringing back old favs and recasting the role of Adam Newman. Could Muhney’s online silence mean that he is reprising his role as Victor Newman’s complex son, Adam?

Michael Muhney Is Silent On Social Media

Michael Muhney has been terribly silent on social media. It is quite suspicious as there is a lot of hubbub over the casting call for Adam Newman, his former role on the Young and the Restless. This was not just a role, this was the character he molded and made his own. He was so great in this role, fans are still asking for his return. They have been active on social media and Michael has clearly appreciated it, but he has also asked that fans be kind to those in charge at CBS.

Michael has always been open with his fans about wanting to return in the role of Adam Newman. He has shared his regret about not appreciating his full-time soap gig while he was there. He admits he believed that the grass was greener on the other side, and it was not. So, why would he not tell fans that he was not returning to the show, if that was the case?

If he was not returning to the Young and the Restless, he would not be obligated to be silent about his status with the show. Fans are asking on his Twitter page if he is silent because he is working. There has been no reply from Michael Muhney. Where is he?

More Unusual Silence

When Alex Trebek recently announced his stage 4 pancreatic cancer diagnosis, it was quite a surprise that Muhney did not  go to social media to acknowledge this announcement. Michael Muhney has been very active in charity fundraising for pancreatic cancer research because his uncle died of this cancer. This would have been a good opportunity to educate and fundraise.

Earlier in February, Kristoff St. John took his life.  It is very unusual that Muhney did not post anything about the late actor, who played Neal Winters on Young and the Restless. The two must have worked together many times. It is highly unusual that Muhney, who remembered a superfan who recently passed away, did not acknowledge such a major loss in the Y&R family.

Are There Clues In The Bubbles?

Are there clues in his last post? Michael Muhney’s last tweet, five weeks ago, was of his son Truman. Michael Muhney was at a photo shoot, but he claims that his son was more interesting to the photographer. The always adorable Truman was blowing bubbles, and one of those bubbles looks suspiciously like the CBS logo. Are there clues in the bubbles, or are they just another red herring? Also, what was the photo shoot for? Fans asked Muhney, but he did not reply.

Then there was a holiday party with Muhney’s former co-star Sharon Case. Case, Muhney and Jamie Muhney, Michael’s wife all sang songs and looked quite festive. This mini-reunion was unusual to those who follow Muhney on Twitter. Over the years, he may have had a shoutout from Sharon Case or other former co-stars, but never a get together like this. Was this a clue that Case was advocating for his return to the show? We can only hope so!

Right now, fans are excited because Doug Davidson will soon be returning to the show. He is reprising his role as Paul Williams. Could Michael Muhney playing Adam Newman be close behind?

As for now, Young and the Restless fans have to wait to see if Michael Muhney is returning as Adam Newman. Do you think that they are recasting Adam Newman with Muhney or with another actor? Share your predictions below. Make sure you don’t miss new episodes of The Young and the Restless weekdays on CBS.

  1. I would absolutely love to see Michael back again as Adam. This would be the only thing to make me want to stay with Y&R because right now with all the stupid stuff going on I am seriously thinking of leaving Y&R and this after over 30 years of a faithful Y&R fan.

  2. I have been a faithful fan for 41years…saw most cast members grow up…very few have give this drama the acting Michael did. His being a Harvard graduate from down on the farm! His mom Hope raised him well but when he found out Cliff was not his dad but Victor was…that enraged him. He always wasn’t good enough as Victors son. Please please bring him back to continue his superb acting career. I think YR desperately needs his talents…boot JT once and for all…YR fans will rejoice again in there favorite soap.

  4. It would be super if Michael was recast as Adam. He would be perfect for the role as he created the character and if Adam is still alive, why not have someone recognizable materialize. Why have to conjure up in your mind….oh it’s another Adam.

  5. I would absolutely love to see Michael return as Adam on Y&R… We all know of his character, and his a great actor. Maybe make his character, a little more calmer toward his father, Victor… If the three men, Victor, Micheal and Nicholas… where to get along a little better, and work together, could you imagine… They could bring Genro City down, to a stop. Ty

  6. OMG please say it’s true Michael is returning to Y&R. I want to start watching again and this is the only reason I will.

  7. Have people forgot why he had to leave the show… He was sexually harassing in Real Life The actress playing Summer Newman, she was a teenager at the time and he was married, she suffered alot during that time. Eric Braydon had to step in and talk with the P. O. B and have that issued dealt with.. Now they want to bring him back and have her face the guy all over again.. Then you had Mal Young (thank God he’s out) make Summer go after and bed Billy Abbott, which she was being harassed for real back then. Sorry just my opinion,just because he made a great Adam let’s get him back. Anyways..

    1. There never was any proof this happened. There is talk that this was a RUMOUR started by a disgruntled person. It was never confirmed to be true by the “supposed” victim. Since we weren’t there and were never made privy to the facts, I won’t make a snap decision based on internet info. I hope he comes back.

  8. O yes!! This will be the BEST thing for CBS!! Only Michael m. Is the only 1 Adam that can be Adam! Anyone else ; I’ll be done with this show!!

  9. It would be an injustice if Michael Muhney is not brought back to play Adam Newman. I’ve heard that the role was recast with some one else playing Adam which is ridiculous. I guess they don’t care what the fans think
