The Young and the Restless Spoilers – Summer Newman’s History

Y&R – What Is Prospect on CBS?
Y&R spoilers confirm that Hunter is headlining a pilot for CBS. According to Deadline, it is called Prospect and is categorized as a Western comedy. According to the description,
“An idealistic young woman, Abigail Lansing (King), moves to the frontier to be a schoolteacher, but her ideals quickly are tested when she learns that her students are rowdy ranch hands, not children.”

The Young and the Restless Spoilers – Hunter King’s Future
Before fans get too upset, remember that Hunter took a break once before to join another filming project. That was in 2018 when she was cast in Life in Pieces. They temporarily recast her but the replacement only took King’s place for three episodes.
It should also be noted that some actors are great at juggling multiple projects. Wally Kurth actually is in two soap operas, as Justin Kiriakis on Days of Our Lives and Ned Quartermaine on General Hospital. However, it definitely takes some creative scheduling to make it all work.
Y&R Spoilers – Prospect in Pilot Mode
Also, Prospect is just in a pilot mode right now. There is no telling if it will actually be picked up or not. So, while we would love to see King spread her acting wings beyond The Young and the Restless, spoilers reveal there is no confirmation yet if she will actually leave or not.
What do you think is going to happen with Hunter King’s character? What would you like to see happen with Summer Newman if Prospect gets the green light from CBS?
