Date October 24, 2019 12:47

Daniel Goddard is adored by The Young and the Restless fans for portraying one of the series' best character Cane Ashby.

Goddard has been a series regular since 2007 and has so far appeared in 548 (!) episodes, but looks like his time on the Y&R is coming to its end.

Daniel Goddard is leaving Y&R

The 48-year-old actor took to his social media to announce his exit from the popular soap opera.

Goddard wrote a long explanation about the situation:

It is with a heavy heart that I share the news that I will no longer be part of the cast of the Young and the Restless. I am as shocked and gutted as you are…

Daniel actually implied in his post that he was fired since there's basically no need for his character after the loss of Neil and Lily:

I almost didn’t post but I felt that the most loyal & loving fans an actor could wish for deserved to know and watch the last story arc knowing the rich meaning behind it. I am forever grateful for the 13 years I have been a part of the Y&R family… but sadly it seems that without Neil and Lily there just is no Cane.

Several publications such as TV Showcase and ET Canada also believe it wasn't Goddard's decision to leave the show.

Fans are absolutely gutted
