Beloved fan favorite Beth Maitland is back on set at THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, which means the Abbott family is about to have another visit from Traci! Unfortunately, with the soap's shooting schedule, Maitland's first airdate isn't until Monday, Oct. 9. “Bring it on!” the actress posted to Instagram with a selfie she took in front of 41C, the dressing room of the late Jeanne Cooper (Katherine). “My office for the week!”

MUST SEE: Everything You Need to Know About Traci Abbott
Maitland joined the cast of Y&R back in 1982 and earned a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in 1985. After leaving in 1999, the actress returned in 2001 on a recurring basis. After some appearances during the holidays in 2016, Maitland most recently appeared in April of 2017 when she had dinner with Ashley and Ravi during their trip to New York City and later returned to Genoa City when Ashley invited her to have dinner with the entire family, including their mother, Dina.

MUST SEE: Daniel Goddard Returned to Work After a Serious Illness
Dina’s return has thrown the Abbott family into turmoil, so they could really use the most levelheaded member of the family to step in and keep them on the right path. She’ll probably be thrilled to see that Ashley has finally hooked up with Ravi, but quite disappointed in Jack’s vendetta against Billy. And hopefully, she’ll be able to get to the bottom of Graham’s true identity and what it has to do with what’s really going on with Dina!
Maitland has already been taping and is scheduled to air the second weekend of October, but at this time we have no information on how long this particular stint will be. But hopefully Traci's visit will be lengthy, as her family could really use her right now. Heck, we're sure nobody would really mind if Maitland stays on full-time, especially not the fans!
