The Young And The Restless (Y&R) scoop suggests Doug Davidson, who plays Genoa City Police Chief Paul Williams, may be turning in his badge.
“I just want to thank you again for all your support,” he posted, in a message to his fans, on Twitter last night. “But I think I am done. After 43 years I am treated like a day player. No Bueno.”
Fans immediately expressed their appreciation for the actor. “”You deserve so much better than this & you are loved by so many of us!” one fan commented. “Don’t give up. We love you,” another said.
Young And The Restless News – Davidson On The Soap For More Than 40 Years
After being on the Y&R for more than 40 years, Davidson was let go in September 2018. At the time, Eric Braeden (Victor Newman) let producers know how he felt on social media. “I have just learned that the wonderful Doug Davidson has been fired…This is a disgrace.”

But this may not be the end for Chief Williams. Davidson’s fans and co-stars have rallied to his defense before. After he was let go in 2018, fans started a petition to bring him back.
Then in early 2019, Braeden appealed to the powers that be to return the actor to his rightful place. And it worked. Braeden posted a photo of he and Davidson on his Twitter account in February 2019. “He’s Back!!” he captioned it.
