It's out with the old and in with the new on January 13, when Jason Thompson debuts as Billy Abbott on “The Young and the Restless.” Thompson replaces Burgess Jenkins, who joined the soap in June 2014 replacing David Tom. But let's face it, he'll be judged by whether or not he measures up to Billy Miller's portrayal of the popular character.

When Jason Thompson takes over the role of Billy Abbott beginning Wednesday, January 13 on CBS' "The Young and the Restless," it'll be during an emotional time for the character as his doctors conclude he has a slim chance of survival shortly after not just one, but two misadventures that have left him in a coma and possibly paralyzed.
When news of Jason Thompson's decision to leave ABC's "General Hospital" after a decade first came to light, timed around the announcement of Burgess Jenkins being out as the third Billy Abbott in two years at CBS' "The Young and the Restless," rumors ran rampant that "GH's" loss would ultimately become "Y&R's" gain and that is now proven true. Thompson will officially join the "Y&R" cast on screen beginning in January 2016.

The newest cast members of “The Young and the Restless” Scott Elrod (Joe Clark), Justin Hartley (Adam Newman), Burgess Jenkins (Billy Abbott) and Gina Tognoni (Phyllis Summers) joined co-hosts Sheryl Underwood, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Aisha Tyler and Julie Chen, along with guest co-host Pat Harvey, on today's edition of CBS' "The Talk" as the actors discussed some of the exciting new storylines in store for their characters and much more!
With a slew of soap weddings under her belt, a run at playing “crazy” and nearly a decade of daytime experience between “The Young and the Restless” and “All My Children,” a back-from-the-dead storyline is no big thang for “Y&R’s” Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea Lawson). Except for when the back-from-the-dead character happens to be her alter ego’s kid-killing husband, and that same guy’s real-life recast happens to be one of the most talked about soap events of the year! So just how is Egan taking in all of the madness surrounding Adam’s big return from the “dead,” including the fact that the character is now being played by Justin Hartley? Soap Opera Network caught up with the actress to find out!
Now that “The Young and the Restless’” newest castmember, Justin Hartley, has been given the all-clear to start commenting on taking over the role of Adam Newman, he’s letting ‘er rip! First, he spoke about filling the shoes of previous portrayer Michael Muhney, and now he’s spilling details about Adam’s return to Genoa City, stating: “There’s damage control to be done!”
On Friday, October 24, "The Young and the Restless'" newest stars, Scott Elrod (Joe Clark), Justin Hartley (Adam Newman), Burgess Jenkins (Billy Abbott) and Gina Tognoni (Phyllis Summers), will be appearing on CBS' "The Talk" to discuss their joining daytime's most watched drama series.
