Ask and you shall receive… eventually? Demands for fan favorite Mishael Morgan to return to CBS sudser The Young and the Restless have been loud and often since her departure in 2018. TV Source Magazine is hearing that fans may finally be getting what they want, but with a slight hitch.
It’s been a little over a year since we broke the news that Mishael Morgan would be vacating her role as Genoa City vixen Hilary Curtis-Hamilton. After a year of fan outcry and even a plane being flown over the CBS studios, could there be a little more Mishael Morgan in our future? Sources tell us that the fan favorite has been hired back to the show!
As previously reported, the actress appeared in a special episode as herself that paid tribute to the late-great Kristoff St. John, and would later be put in a few spectral appearances as Hilary’s spirit.
What could this mean for Devon (Bryton James) and his new budding relationship with Elena (Brytni Sarpy?) Maybe not much as there seems to be a caveat — Morgan may be playing a new role, not a resurrected Hilary Curtis-Hamilton!
TV Source reached out to reps for Morgan and The Young and the Restless for comment ahead of the publication of this story.
A rep for Y&R would only confirm “Mishael continues to have appearances as Hilary’s ghost.”
