Yesterday may have seen the cancellation of both All My Children and One Life to Live, but THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS is still going strong. In fact, CBS has announced that Sean Patrick Flanery (The Dead Zone, Boondock Saints) is joining the cast on Monday, April 18.

Flanery will play Sam, a veterinarian who helps Sharon (Sharon Case) out of a tough spot. There is no word on how long Sam will be staying in Genoa City, but pairing him with a long-running and popular character seems to say it will be at least for a while.

Flanery’s television career began with his starring role in the series, The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles and other credits include The Diamond Hunters, Charmed, The Twilight Zone, Numb3rs, and CSI.

The Young and the Restless has been the number one rated daytime drama for more than twenty-two years and it recently celebrated its thirty-eighth anniversary. It airs on CBS weekdays at 12:30pm eastern/11:00am pacific.
