How long did this last?

Burgess Jenkins went to his Twitter account and shared saying, "6 mos ago w grace, faith, humor & unending strength she put the gloves on & fought.

Today she’s cancer free #warrior." It is great to hear that after a long six months for this family their battle is finally over. With the post, he shared a picture of himself along with his wife, Ashlee.


Ashlee was diagnosed back in November of 2015. Burgess Jenkins has been by her side ever since and fans are hoping that this means a return to television is coming soon for him. 

Is he coming back to The Young and the Restless

There is no word that Burgess Jenkins will be returning to the show once again. Jason Thompson of General Hospital took over his role as Billy Abbott. Thompson used to play Dr. Patrick Drake on GH. Fans are glad to see him on another show again. At this time, fans are embracing him in this role and there is no reason to think that Burgess will be taking back over. He did actually quit and not just take a leave of absence for a bit. 

Now, Burgess Jenkins could have time to work on another soap opera. When he left The Young and the Restless, he didn't say exactly why he was moving on, but he later revealed that it was to be with his wife.
