As previously reported, Daytime Emmy Award winner David Tom will re-join the #1 daytime drama The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott, the role he created in 1999. When will the actor first hit the air?

The announcement of Tom’s return comes after contract talks with two-time Emmy winner Billy Miller, who’s played Billy Abbott since 2008, reached an impasse. “The show wanted Billy Miller to stay and worked hard to make that happen but we are going in another direction now. We are very excited to have David Tom back in the role,” said a Y&R rep to TV Guide. “Not only is he a terrific actor, it will give us an opportunity to dig into our archives and use some of those great old Glow by Jabot flashbacks. We say a big thank you to Billy Miller and wish him well in all his future endeavors.”

TV Guide reports that Miller will continue filming until December 19. His last airdate is Thursday, January 30. Tom’s first airdate is Monday, February 3.

“All of us at CBS Daytime and The Young and the Restless are thrilled to welcome David Tom back to the Emmy Award-winning role he created,” said Angelica McDaniel, Senior Vice President of CBS Daytime. “We have a lot planned for the character of Billy in 2014, and we’re excited to see David play out the storyline.”

Tom’s credits include roles on One Life to LiveVeronica Mars and 90210, as well as Criminal Minds and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, on the Network.

  3. Great that David Tom is coming back to the show. Sad that Billy Miller is leaving. Writers and producers must be issuing a sigh of relief that the original actress who played Victoria Newman isn’t Heather Tom. Awkward kissing your sister…

  4. Bill Miller will be missed. What a great actor and the actor who plays his baby Johnny looks like Billy Miller. The baby
