Actress Hunter King is headed back to The Young and the Restless to reprise the role of Summer Newman, according to TVLine. King joined Life in Pieces before leaving Y&R in 2016, and Soaps.com has learned she will continue to play Clementine on the series.
Speculation has been steady about the return of Summer since Y&R recast the role of Kyle Abbott, as the characters had been involved previously. Summer was last seen before deciding to leave for extensive travel and has been referred to on occasion by her onscreen parents, Phyllis and Nick. In a preview photo of her return, Summer is shown in jail, so there's no telling what she's been up to!
Hunter King has been put on contract and will first be seen on Monday June 4.
