Grab your tumblers, Genoa City lovers. I'm about to pour y'all some tea with extra lemon! Big changes are ahead for CBS Daytime's The Young and the Restless, as new head writer/executive producer Chuck Pratt's storylines kick off.
While I won't spoil specific stories, I will say to look for the kind of rock 'em, sock 'em arcs Pratt is known for. For starters, remember my blind item about a disaster hitting one soap town? Those of you who guessed Genoa City deserve a plaque in Katherine Chancellor Memorial Park! No, no, no, I won't say what kind of disaster, only that it won't be natural and it will impact much of the canvas — especially one forbidden couple.
Another big, ballsy storyline Pratt and second-in-command writer Tracey Thompson have been working on, is a deadly thriller. Look for a murder victim to be tall, dark and dreamy!
Our Sara Bibel was just complaining about Y&R needing a jolt of energy on the most recent Daytime Confidential podcast. From what I'm hearing, she's gonna get her wish and some!
