‘The Young and the Restless’ renewed until 2024
2019 was a rough year for the Young and the Restless cast. A year ago exactly, the world learned the news of Kristoff St. John’s passing which shattered not only fan’s hearts but the cast’s as well. They dedicated special episodes to the late actor, sending him off with a proper ‘goodbye.’ St. John’s passing came a few years after his son’s death in 2015.
The show follows the lives of several characters who live in the fictional town of Genoa City in the Midwest. The cast members who have been there the longest include Melody Thomas Scott and Eric Braeden coming in at 40 years.
