Fresh on the heels of his departure, Mal Young is speaking out about his exit from The Young and the Restless. Young released a statement to an online publication on why he left the show. According to Young,

Just arrived in London for the holidays. I felt like it was a good time to move on. Never a good idea to get too settled on a long running soap and I achieved all that I and CBS set out to do: improved scripts and production values. I have a project of my own that I’ve been developing and want to pursue that now. Plus running a show like this is all consuming and want to get a bit of my life back – and see my family occasionally.
