Meredith Baxter Joins 'The Young and the Restless' as Maureen, Will Debut on Monday, September 8

Melody Thomas Scott and Meredith
Baxter.
Family Ties star Meredith Baxter is joining the cast of CBS daytime drama The Young and the Restless. She will play Maureen, "charming, intelligent, middle-class woman who has always aspired to a more privileged life than she's had. She appears kind and sympathetic, but can be quite manipulative. She is skilled at getting people to do the things she wants them to do by making them think it's their idea! When not hitting the sauce with her new drinking-buddy, Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott), Maureen will be crossing with several key players on the Y&R canvas."

Will those "key players" include Kelly (Cady McClain) and Stitch (Sean Carrigan)? Kelly recently mentioned her broken relationship with their mother.

Baxter is best known for playing Elyse Keaton in NBC comedy Family Ties and Nancy Lawrence Maitland in the ABC drama Family, a role which earned her two Primetime Emmy nominations.

Baxter will make her Y&R debut on Monday, September 8, when Maureen bumps into Nikki at a bar.

Warning: Spoilers ahead...

"Whoa, I never expected to see you here," Maureen says. "So what's another classy lady doing in a dive like this in the middle of the day?"

Nikki tells Maureen that her car broke down down. Maureen reveals she is there looking for some "liquid courage" before meeting some people she hasn't seen for a while.

"I don't know how that reunion's gonna go," she admits.

Stay tuned!
