While speaking with media at the recent Television Critics Association summer press tour, “The Young and the Restless'” Justin Hartley (Adam Newman) addressed his status with the show, given that he joined the cast of NBC’s This Is Us. Hartley said, “There’s definitely a break [at ‘Y&R’]. I don’t know if I can [do both shows]. I try to stay out of that, and gladly don’t wear that hat.”

It’s unclear whether Adam will disappear from Genoa City during the Hartley’s break, as sometimes scenes can be taped ahead to air through absences.

Hartley also revealed how he proposed to Chrishell Stause during the press tour.
