CBS Soaps in Depth is reporting on their Twitter account that The Young and the Restless star Billy Miller, who plays Billy Abbott, has decided to sign on for another year. Apparently talks have been going on for some time between the star and the powers that be, but it looks like they’ve reached an agreement.
Here’s what SID says on their website:
It seems as if reports of Billy Miller‘s exit from THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS were premature: Soaps In Depth has learned that the actor — currently nominated for a Daytime Emmy for his portrayal of Billy — renegotiated his contract and signed a one-year deal with the soap. “I’m very happy,” Y&R headwriter and executive producer Maria Arena Bell confirms to In Depth. “Very happy.”
As In Depth told you back in April when the news of Miller’s supposed exit first started generating buzz, setsiders were reporting that the actor was still in contract talks with the soap and his exit wasn’t necessarily a done deal.
