CASTING UPDATE: Billy Miller (Billy) is STAYING!
Billy fans can breathe a sigh of relief!
Emmy winner Billy J. Miller (Billy Abbott) will not be exiting The Young and the Restless when his contract expires this summer. The actor and the CBS soap have reached a deal on a new contract.
Soaps In Depth first reported the news of Miller's new deal on Twitter. The magazine has since gone on to reveal that Miller's contract is a one-year deal.
Earlier this year, Miller -- who is extremely popular with Y&R fans -- was rumored to be leaving the number one daytime drama
Miller debuted on The Young and the Restless in September 2008, becoming the fourth actor in six years to play the role of Billy. Prior to joining Y&R, Miller appeared for a year on ABC's All My Children.
In 2010, Miller earned his first Daytime Emmy, winning the Outstanding Supporting Actor trophy. He is nominated in the category again this year ... and now that he's sticking around it looks like he has the opportunity to go for Emmy gold at least one extra year!
