Y&R is gearing up for the return of Chance Chancellor. However, he’s going to look a little different once again. Conner Floyd will take over the role of Chance from actor Donny Boaz who was fired last year. In February 2020, Donny announced that he is no longer part of the CBS soap.
It is no secret that soaps love to make casting changes. Boaz quickly learned that after he took on the role in 2019. He took on a role that about 10 actors played before him. Viewers loved his portrayal of Chance, including his onscreen chemistry with Melissa Ordway’s Abby Newman.
Conner Floyd replaces Donny Boaz
Y&R alum Donny Boaz shocked fans when he announced his departure from the show. His final scene aired on February 1, 2021. In his Instagram post, Boaz claimed the producers told him his character was “NOT being replaced or killed off.” Yet, viewers did wonder if it was the end for Chance and Abby.
It’s unclear why Boaz was fired from the show. He seemed to have left on good terms. The Friday Night Lights alum thanked the creators and fans for their support. Boaz also called Ordway “one of the greatest actresses I’ve ever had the privilege to work with.”
Despite his claims, Boaz has been replaced. Conner Floyd is the new Chance Chancellor on Y&R. The actor has an impressive list of credits, including A Kiss on Candy Cane Lane, Holy S***, Mary!, and Malicious Motives. Floyd has also appeared in many of the short films he wrote himself.
It’ll be the first time that he’s worked on a soap. Floyd took to Instagram to share his excitement over the iconic role. He revealed that he couldn’t “thank [CBS] and [The Young and the Restless] enough for the opportunity.” Floyd concluded his message by teasing his debut in Genoa City.

Melissa Ordway already teased this major Y&R spoiler. She couldn’t keep the news to herself. The actress took to her Instagram Story to share a snapshot with her onscreen husband. They sure make a good-looking couple.
It’ll be interesting to see if Ordway and Floyd have the same on-screen chemistry. “Welcome to Genoa City @connerfloyd @youngandrestlesscbs,” Ordway captioned the post. Once the Y&R news leaked, Ordway took to her Instagram feed to announce that Chance Chancellor is still alive. The couple will be reunited soon and it will feel so good.
It’s always a shock when a new actor takes on a historic role. However, this confirms that Donny Boaz’s role went to someone else. Conner Floyd is officially the new Chance Chancellor on Y&R.
Abby’s wishes will finally come true. She’ll get to have the marriage and family life that she desperately wanted. Also, her mind wasn’t playing tricks on her all this time. Abby knew Chance was still alive, and she was right.
