‘Bold and the Beautiful’ spoilers impart that many fans can’t help but ask the same question: is Rick Forrester ever coming back? Thankfully, actor Jacob Young, who played the character on The Bold and the Beautiful for more than two decades, has some answers for us.
‘Bold and the Beautiful’ Spoilers: Jacob Young Sounds Out On Rick Forrester’s Return
The handsome actor spoke to Soap Opera News about whether or not he would consider a return to daytime television. He told the site, “”I’m not necessarily open to signing a contract. But I’m open to giving the fans what they want. And for me personally to be able to put closure on it or to be able to float in and out a little bit. Maya and Rick was such an important storyline on so many levels. Even if they were wrapping up Rick’s story, and Maya and Rick were divorced and Rick wasn’t coming back, I just really wished they would have had Rick come back and explain himself to his family.”

So does this mean that someone else might be filing in for Jacob’s shoes? Say it isn’t so! Jacob further explained, “I don’t know what they plan on doing, I don’t know if they are planning on recasting Rick or if they plan on having me come back for that arc. But I feel like that’s been robbed without a true explanation. It’s been super vague. I wish they would do something about that. But obviously, it’s out of my hands. I know the viewers want to see it. I know I would like to see it. You know it was a real highlight of my career working with Karla Mosley. I just hate to see it drift off into nothingness without that.”
Right now, it doesn’t look like Rick will be coming back to Los Angeles anytime soon but even daytime television fans know that anything can happen at any time. After all, there is someone waiting for him back at home: Maya! Plus, Jacob has made it pretty clear that he wants to spend some time focusing on not only his music career, but other opportunities in the entertainment industry. Either way, his fans would love to see him back on the canvas. Fingers crossed that it happens sooner rather than later!
