The Young And The Restless – The Mess COVID-19 Made
Donny Boaz experienced an abrupt exit from “Young and Restless”. On January 31, the actor announced his departure from the show and revealed what he knew that Chance is not being replaced or killed off from the show, rather he is “just not going to be there anymore.”
He was last seen on February 1, appearing in a total of 108 episodes. It was revealed that the show let him go due to financial struggles as a result of suffering from the pandemic.
The character Phillip Robert “Chance” Chancellor IV was originally portrayed by John Driscoll. Donny joined the show as the recast Chance Chancellor in 2019. However, in November 2020, the actor temporarily left the show following his COVID-19 diagnosis. To adhere to health protocols, he took a break. The actor Justin Gaston, the real-life husband of Melissa Ordway (who portrays Abby), temporarily took over the role to continue filming.
Donny’s The Young and the Restless fans have followed Chance’s love story with Abigail Newman and the couple was near to form a family with a new baby when Donny was let go from the show. The decision has outraged his fans to the point of signing a petition, demanding Chance’s return on the soap.
Donny closed his exit post on his social media with “And that’s a wrap. I am now a free agent. Time to get work.”
