On May 20, 2013 the news broke of Michelle Stafford’s exit from The Young and the Restless and the role she had played for 16 years, Phyllis Summers Newman. Stafford, who made it clear she would not return, taped her last episode on June 19 and her scenes aired into August. At the time of her departure the character was in a coma in a special clinic in Georgia, where she remains.
Since that time, Phyllis' name has come up in Genoa City storylines on a regular basis, most recently with Victor (Eric Braeden) calling to check on her status in connection with the secret being kept by Sharon (Sharon Case).
