What Happened to Dylan on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS


Back in 2013, Steve Burton joined the cast of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS as Dylan McAvoy and quickly became a fan favorite among viewers just as he had when he starred as GENERAL HOSPITAL‘s Jason. Sadly for viewers, the actor left the soap in January of 2017 to spend more time with his family. But Burton and his heroic alter ego are still much-missed by Y&R fans.

Originally a lone wolf, Dylan was eventually revealed to have family connections to some very prominent Genoa City residents. His personal life was a shambles, with two of his wives giving birth to other men’s children, but the guy had better luck professionally as a detective with the GCPD. At least until that one final case that ultimately destroyed his life and forced him to start over somewhere else…

Relive all the dramatic details of Dylan’s life in our special flashback gallery below that takes you through all the highs and lows from his shocking entrance to his emotional farewell!

Could Dylan come back to Genoa City one day? Currently, Burton has returned to his former stomping grounds at GH so if Dylan was to make another appearance, they would have to recast the character. However, in the future, Burton could become available to reprise his role, so who knows? In daytime, anything is possible, so stay tuned!
