Nov 18 2013, 8:56pm CST | by TV Line

At The Young and the Restless, one Daytime Emmy-winning Billy is out, and another Daytime Emmy-winning Billy is in.

David Tom, who originated the role of grown Billy Abbott on the long-running CBS sudser, is returning to Genoa City. He succeeds Billy Miller, who has decided to exit the show.

TV Guide Magazine soap guru Michael Logan broke the news on Twitter Monday evening. CBS Daytime boss Angelica McDaniels followed with confirmation.

Tom made his debut as Y&R‘s SORASed Billy (who up until then had been played by tots and tykes) in June 1999, and stayed with the serial until summer of 2002. Over the course of that run, he earned two Daytime Emmys nods, converting on one.

Miller, the third young adult actor to play Billy, made his Y&R debut in September 2008, amassing two Daytime Emmys wins among three nominations.

Since leaving Y&R, Tom — the brother of five-time Daytime Emmy winner Heather Tom (Katie, The Bold and the Beautiful; ex-Victoria, Y&R) — has appeared on All My Children (as Paul Cramer), Veronica Mars and episodes of CSI, 90210 and Criminal Minds.

Details of the transition timing — last and first airdates and what not — are expected on Tuesday.
