Hurricane Gloria will be returning to Genoa City very soon! On Jan. 6, Judith Chapman shared on Instagram that she was back at work on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, posting a photo of herself and Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren) on the set of the iconic soap. “YR fun in 2021,” Chapman captioned the selfie, seemingly taken by Bregman with Gloria’s portrayer in the background.
Chapman had previously announced her upcoming Y&R return in a Facebook post she shared on Jan. 3. “Time for a new year and a new attitude,” she wrote. “Glo and I are Hollywood-bound. Time to kick a** in 2021. Just do it!” The actress also shared in another Facebook post that she’d be taking a COVID test on Jan. 4 as part of the safety protocols required to work on the soap.
Gloria’s return to town isn’t all that surprising, considering that Kevin recently found a flashdrive that his mom hid in the Chancellor Estate during her last visit to town. Chapman last aired on the soap in October, when Gloria came to visit Kevin, Chloe and their newborn son, Miles. During that visit, the mega schemer made a shady phone call before promptly taking off again for California. In the months since then, it’s been revealed that Gloria seems to somehow be involved in the funds that are being embezzled from Newman Enterprises. We can’t wait to see how this story unfolds!
At this time, it’s unknown how long Chapman — and Gloria — will be sticking around Genoa City, or when she will be making her return appearance. Stay tuned for further details!
