    The brass at Y&R have decided not to renew Greg Rikaart’s contract at Y&R when it expires in June. Kevin should continue to air into August, and plans are for writing him out will leave the door open for a return. TVLine broke the story yesterday.

    On the one hand, I can see why TPTB don’t feel the need to keep Kevin around, especially with Sally Sussman trying to move the show back into a more classic direction and focus more on the core families and characters (sorry, Fisher/Baldwins). But it’s a shame because I’ve always loved Greg Rikaart. I hope to see him land somewhere soon. I’d love to see him show up in Salem!

    Kind of surprised by this news because I thought he was well liked by TPTB.

    I can’t believe that he was let go! A talented, multi-Emmy winning actor playing a character with strong ties to the canvas on a show that values vets and cast consistency. What are they thinking? Their loss. He’d make a great Lucky on GH.

    I used to like rikaart and Kevin but both actor and material became dreary and lame and he was always with the characters who were boring or far more interesting and he was just a scene partner of no value like with Chloe.

    Judging by what I have read about Gloria, they don’t plan to let JC go anytime soon apparently and I cannot believe they went there.

    Lately as I have been watching Y&R, I keep thinking that they have too many characters on the canvas. So I guess I am not totally shocked by this news. However, as OLTLFan points out, he is very talented and has won the Emmy (not to mention many nominations). I can think of other characters I would have written off before Kevin. Best of luck to Rikaart. He has given a great deal to the show for well over a decade.
