The Young And The Restless (Y&R) scoop confirms Michael Mealor (Kyle Abbott) will be exiting the sudser in the coming weeks.
“From every engagement and every heart break, whether you were #KOLA or #SKYLE, y’all were along for the rollercoaster,” the actor posted on Twitter last night “Thank you @youngandrestlesscbs, @cbstv and @sony for trusting me with this incredible character. Thank you for allowing me to be your Kyle Abbott. So much love!”
Speculation about Mealor and Hunter King’s (Summer Newman) departure has been building for weeks. This was shortly after news leaked that contract negotiations with he and King had broken off.
Y&R News – Skyle Represented A Legacy Generation
Of course, all this comes after what definitely looked like King’s departure episode on June 28. After being threatened by Tara Locke (Elizabeth Leiner), instead of staying and fighting for Kyle, Summer instead chose to accept a job in Italy and leave Genoa City. Plus, Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott) accidentally spilled the beans to a fan last weekend. He tweeted: “Michael Mealor is a gem. We will miss him.”
Fans weren’t happy when they suspected King’s exit and they’re also not happy with Mealor’s impending departure. Skyle had become an integral part of Y&R’s storylines and represented a legacy generation on the soap.
“We love you and we’ll keep fighting for you and Hunter to return,” one fan replied to Mealor’s tweet. “Thank you for being an exemplary Kyle Abbott.” Another said that he would be greatly missed. “I’m still praying we see you and Hunter both back soon.”
Young And The Restless News – What In The World Is CBS Thinking?
“I don’t know what in the world CBS is thinking, but this show belongs to you and @HunterHaleyKing, #Skyle is the reason I’ve kept watching,” yet another fan replied. “Thank you for giving us such an iconic character in Kyle Abbott, best wishes.”
Mealor’s first appearance as Kyle on the Y&R was on March 29, 2018. His last airdate hasn’t been confirmed yet. But how will Kyle exit the soap? Many fans are hoping he’ll find out about Tara’s deception and head to Italy to be with Summer. At least it would give Kyle and Summer the happy ending they deserve.
