We have great news for Skyle fans — Hunter King and Michael Mealor will be returning to The Young and the Restless as Summer and Kyle! Soap Opera Digest learned exclusively that the characters will be back for a visit to Genoa City sometime in October. The actors are set to arrive at the studios this week to tape scenes.
Those who have followed King and Mealor’s departures will recall that the actors left the CBS soap opera after failed contract talks.
Summer had been the first to leave town after being threatened by Tara to either fly away to Italy or risk Kyle losing his son forever. Kyle was devastated but finally relented and was given no choice but to move on without her in order to be a father to his son — but Summer’s mama wasn’t having it. Phyllis continued to dig until she proved that Tara and Sally had teamed up to get her daughter out of the way so Tara could have Kyle all to herself and Sally could further her own career.
When the news was revealed, Tara was arrested for stealing from her company, something else Phyllis proved, with Nick’s help, and was sent to New York City to await her arraignment. Lauren fired Sally then Kyle rushed off to Italy to be with the love of his life, where both were reunited and are now raising Harrison.
Even though this will be a brief visit, we look forward to seeing Summer and Kyle back in town — In fact, could a Skyle wedding be in the works? While we wait until their return, look through our gallery filled with photos of Kyle and Summer’s romance.
