The Young and the Restless Steve Burton Leaving

Young and the Restless: Steve Burton to Exit CBS Soap — Find Out When

Steve Burton is putting another daytime drama in his rearview mirror.

The soap vet will leave CBS’ The Young and the Restless when his contract is up in December, he tweeted Thursday evening.

Burton made a name for himself — and won a Daytime Emmy — as General Hospital‘s Jason. He moved to Y&R, where he played Dylan, in 2012. At the time, he told the hosts of The Talk that the network had accommodated his requests for a work schedule that would allow him to maximize his time in Tennessee, where his family lived.

No word yet on Burton’s final air date or whether Y&R plans to recast the role.
