Get ready for the return of The Great Victor Newman! Eric Braeden is back in the studio at THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS and there’s going to be plenty of drama to look forward to now! “Back on set with my long-lost daughter!” the actor tweeted along with a photo of himself with castmate Amelia Heinle (Victoria). And although he’s made a couple of brief appearances via video chat, Braden has now announced that Victor will be back on screen properly in time for the holidays! “I‘ll see you all on Friday, Dec. 21st,”he promised. Of course, due to earlier preemptions, that episode will actually air on Monday, Dec. 24.
Back in September, Braeden announced that he was taking a month off from Y&R so he could go on vacation. And in October, he shared some absolutely gorgeous photos from his trip back to his home country of Germany. The Daytime Emmy winner also promised fans “a hell of a storyline” once he was back taping new episodes of the soap.
Victor hasn’t been seen since he expressed his glee at Sharon dumping Nick at the altar during their ill-fated wedding ceremony back in October. But some viewers suspect that he will find himself very deeply involved in the current storyline where Victoria is struggling to keep the lid on J.T.’s death and disappearance. Perhaps Victor could lend a hand to his little girl? Given the chaos and turmoil that the entire Newman family is currently involved in right now on the soap, Victor is more needed than ever!
