The Young And The Restless (Y&R) scoop reveals that actor Tyler Johnson, who plays Theo Vanderway, will be returning to Genoa City.
Theo first appeared on the soap in 2019, so fans were stunned when the news of Johnson’s departure from the Y&R spread in early November. The actor announced he was leaving on his Twitter account.
“I’ve always been an optimist. Today isn’t an end, but a new beginning,” he posted. “Thank you to everyone tuned in to watch ‘Theo Vanderway’- it was all a blast. The future is bright. Love you all.”

Johnson’s Y&R homecoming will take place during the week of February 8. It’s not known how long his return will last, but fans are hoping it will lead him back to the Y&R canvas permanently in the near future.
Theo may well be back to cause problems for his cousin. He and Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) were rivals from the start and by the time he left, they hated each other. However, he did make amends to Kyle’s girlfriend.
