The Young And The Restless is one of America’s most popular soap operas, having been on air since 1973.

Over the past 25 years, the soap’s characters have grown near and dear to viewers across the US. It’s understandable that attachment would grow, given fans tune in to watch the characters day in, day out. So, when the time comes for a cast member to move on, the fanbase can be hit hard.

This summer has seen concern rise among The Young And The Restless fans over rumours that long-standing cast member Joshua Morrow is leaving. So, is Joshua saying goodbye to his role as Nicholas “Nick” Newman? We’ve done some digging to find out where the rumours have come from.

Is Nick leaving The Young And The Restless?

No, it doesn’t appear as though Nick (played by Joshua Morrow) is leaving The Young And The Restless.

The character of Nick debuted in 1988. Joshua took on the role in 1994 and has portrayed him since.

So, where did the rumours come from?

The rumour Joshua Morrow was leaving the show was fuelled by the title of an upcoming episode – Nick Says Goodbye.

The rumour mill wasn’t helped by soap-centric websites, which discussed potential upcoming spoilers. Soaphub reported: “Finally, Nicholas Newman (Joshua Morrow) bids Genoa City adieu.” This had Y&R fans thinking the character was leaving the show for good.

Nick’s character is currently in Paris with daughter Summer (Hunter King). One fan speculated he would say goodbye to Summer and head back to Genoa City.

Another wrote: “I think this rumour is based on the spoiler ‘Nick says goodbye’. Keep in mind he’s in Paris with Summer and will be saying goodbye to her!”
