The recent behind-the-scenes drama over at “The Young and the Restless” has created quite a storm, but a little bit of sunshine broke through the clouds today when CBS announced it has renewed the 40-year-old soap opera through 2017. Fans of the show have taken to Twitter to congratulate the cast and crew, and they’re not alone in the celebration: The actors are also thrilled that the sudser they call home received the official extension.

“This is amazing news!” Daniel Goddard (Cane) tweeted. “You, our amazing fans, will get to enjoy ‘Y&R’ for years to come!”

Added Joshua Morrow (Nicholas): “Huge thank you to all of our fans… U appreciate what we do… U stick with us through our ups and downs… our rich history lives on because of u!”

When a fan of CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” tweeted, “Can all my soap followers do me a favor and send some love and support to @HunterHaleyKing? Thanks! #YR, following reports of an alleged groping of her breasts by King’s former co-star Michael Muhney (Adam Newman), who was reportedly fired from the drama series last month as a result of the incident, the quest for love and support for the actress, who plays Summer Newman on the daytime soap opera, came in droves.

When thinking of daytime dramas like “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless,” extreme drama, intrigue, love and romance probably come to mind. But how about comedy? Is laughter an important component within daytime dramas?

“Criminal Minds” star Joe Mantegna certainly thinks so. “When I was doing mostly theater, I watched a lot of daytime, because theater actors are like athletes: They sleep late, because they work nights, so they watch daytime television. And actually, I used to find a lot of humor in them,” he tells Soap Opera Network. “I like… when soap operas have characters who bring a lot of comedy to the show. Some of them are very, very good.”

But do the stars of CBS’ sudsers agree? We asked several if comedic scenes have a place within their intense dramas, and if so, how important is it to infuse comedy into the emotional roller coasters. Funny enough (no pun intended), they were all too happy to share that when it comes to comedy, there is no joking around!

With “The Young and the Restless” losing its leading men in a one-two punch, as both Billy Miller (Billy Abbott) and Michael Muhney (Adam Newman) filmed their last scenes on Thursday, December 19, cast and crew of daytime’s most watched drama series have put together video tributes to honor the departing stars.

First shown during the “Y&R” goodbye party for Miller the same day he filmed his final scenes, Greg Edwards, a production staffer, opted to publish an 11 1/2 minute video dedication on Vimeo “For everyone that either couldn’t make it to the goodbye party last night or that couldn’t hear it on those small speakers we had.” In his message, Edwards added, “Goodbye Billy, you will be missed.” The video includes several cast and crew members initially pretending to not know who Miller was, even as a life sized cut out poster of the actor holding one of his Emmy Awards roamed the halls and stages of the soap behind them. Later, co-stars Greg Rikaart (Keven Fisher), Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea Lawson), Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren Fenmore), Christian LeBlanc (Michael Baldwin), Doug Davidson (Paul Williams), Lauralee Bell (Christine Blair), Peter Bergman (Jack Abbott), Christel Khalil (Lily Winters Ashby), Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki Newman), Amelia Heinle (Victoria Newman Abbott), and Jess Walton (Jill Abbott), along with many others, shared their most heartfelt thoughts and memories of the actor as he moves toward his next journey in life. One of the most hilarious scenes in the video was by Joshua Morrow (Nicholas Newman), who jokingly said, “Think about all your options. ‘General Hospital’ would love to have you. Any soap would kill to have you! There’s internet, there’s all these cable shows – Nickelodeon – think about it, you’d be huge like a ‘Different Strokes’ remake!” while the cut out  of Miller attempted to commit suicide (it fell off the roof of the CBS building after hearing the things people were saying before the kind words poured in).

As playwright Oscar Wilde once said, true friends stab you in the front. And so begins the inevitable downward spiral between “The Young and the Restless” besties Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) and Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan), two female characters who’ve become a daytime rarity — true best friends — and whose recent storyline is setting the pair up to potentially take a serious fall. Will the recent death of Chloe’s daughter, Delia, followed by the heart wrenching transplant of the little girl’s corneas to Chelsea’s infant son, Conner, followed by the possible news that Conner’s father, Adam (Michael Muhney) is responsible for Delia’s death end up tearing the best friends apart? Soap Opera Network spoke with both Egan and Hendrickson for the scoop!
