Eric Braeden Confirms Return to The Young and the Restless

at . Comments

Less than two weeks ago, Eric Braeden spoke on his exit from The Young and the Restless, as the veteran actor and the daytime drama couldn't agree on new contract terms.

But a lot can happen in a few days and Braeden finally agreed to a new deal last week. He talked about the experience with Entertainment Tonight:

On his agreement with the show: Let us just say that we arrived at a mutually beneficial arrangement. Obviously, I was very touched by the fans' reaction and support. I must say in all humbleness, it touched me. I had no idea. I am inclined to be a cynic about some things, and I did not expect this type of outpouring.

On his emotions when he thought he was out: As you know, in any kind of divorce or loss like that, you go through so many emotions, you can't think straight for awhile. It is kind of a grieving process. It is all kinds of emotions rolled into one.

On what fans can expect from Victor: To come back and take revenge!

Victor & Nikki now there is our heros and also the ones to save Y&R Please get them back on and soon or I am sure you are going to be loosing a lot of your audience and your rating. Also when is the writers going to let someone find the money that has been transferred to an overseas account by Brad and Jack when Victor was in the hospital. Now Brad is gone and Jack is left to suffer the consequence alone. Come on writers wake up and smell the roses before the Y&R looses out to another soap For now a daily watcher but not for long if Victor and Nikki don't come back


You go, Thula!!! If Victor's not coming back, I'm not staying. Get rid of some writers. The show sucks without Victor.


If eric braeden leaves so will I and a large viewing population of the Young and Restless. He and Nicky are the show. Some of the story lines are outrages and perhaps the writters should leave. Adam had Sharon and Nick's baby declared dead and gave it to Ashley as hers and Victors, now their getting romantically involved. People aren't stupid and these writters seem to be living in lala land. Nick belongs with Sharon and Phylis belongs with Jack or whom ever. Let's get back to the real story line with some excitement and substance and bring Victor home to seek revenge and discover exactly what Adam has done.


the show would never be the dame without Victor Newman. It all revolves around him and Eric Braeden is perfect for the part.


Life threw a Mariano Rivera cutter at Eric Braeden and he returned it with dash, aplomb and humility. My hero.

That was Victor's doing. It was purely personal. Believe me, old moneybags is going to eat his words. The magazine is gonna do great, and beauty of nature will be left in the dust.
