While keeping relatively silent since being let go from CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” in early December, actor Michael Muhney (ex-Adam Newman) was reportedly spotted on the CBS Television Studios based set of the daytime drama series recently, reports Soap Opera Digest in its June 9 issue.

“Insiders report that Michael Muhney could be back in the mix to reprise the role,” the magazine says in its reporting, after noting that the search to find a replacement has intensified. “The actor, whose controversial exit last December sent shockwaves through the soap community, was reportedly spotted at the ‘Y&R’ studios.”

When pressed for comment on the matter by the magazine, a show spokesperson said, “We don’t comment on rumors or contract status.”
