‘Young and the Restless’ (Y&R) Spoilers: Josh Griffith Opens Up, Teases Y&R Future – New Developments Up Ahead!
Josh Griffith took over as the new head writer after Mel Young stepped away from the position. And ever since Young left, fans have seen some drastic changes for some of their favorite character in Genoa City. But they are good changes, that is. A lot of actors and actresses have come back and now the current storylines are more intense than ever before. With Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) battling his brother Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow), Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford) causing trouble and even Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) sharing a few surprises of his own, fans are finding themselves at the edge of their seats!
When asked what fans can expect, Griffith told Soaps in Depth in an interview, “ It really depends. Like I said, I come in and look at the canvas, and I say, ‘Who hasn’t had much story? And why is that?’ Maybe it’s because they haven’t been interacting with the people they should be interacting with. So it’s never fixing or tinkering, it’s always just looking at the canvas and saying, ‘Where are these people going? And who are they going to relate to to get what they want?’ It always comes back to that question — what do the characters want? It’s like an acting exercise. What do I want in the scene? What do they want in their lives?”
Griffith further explained, “And then you grow the story from there. It’s never a matter of fixing for me, it’s just the organic moving in a certain direction that maybe is a different direction than it was going in before, the direction that [the characters] are telling me that the show should go in. I literally have… every show that I’ve ever done, I get every cast member’s headshot and put it up on my wall, and sometimes spend an hour just sitting in my chair, staring at them, going, ‘Okay, talk to me!’”
