He left the Young and the Restless in 2016 after he booked his prime-time role on This Is Us, and Y&R fans have been hoping for his return to reprise the role of Adam. Back then, Hartley did not rule out the possibility of coming back if his schedule permits. However, Y&R is now recasting the character.
Hartley has also appeared in other movies since he left his Y&R role. He starred in Bad Mom’s Christmas in 2017 and in Another Time in 2018, along with his wife Chrishell Hartley (Jordan Ridgeway, Days of Our Lives). He will be seen next on Little, a movie which will be out in theaters in April.
