With the latest news about Amber Brown, many soap fans are speculating whether Brooks is leaving the daytime serial. According to SoapHub.com, fans can breathe a sigh of relief. The actor is still on contract at The Bold and the Beautiful, so they’ll be seeing more of Wyatt.

Wyatt Spencer’s history on ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’

From the moment Wyatt debuted, he became an integral part of The Bold and the Beautiful. The character immediately became a fan favorite as Hope Logan’s (Annika Noelle) new love interest. Throughout his early years, Wyatt often fought with his brother Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) over Hope and Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood).

In recent years, Wyatt has moved on from the Hope, Liam, and Steffy triangle. Wyatt became romantically involved with fashion designer Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope). Yet, their relationship ended with the arrival of Wyatt’s high-school girlfriend Flo Fulton (Katrina Bowden), whom he never stopped loving. Wyatt’s last big storyline consisted of Sally pretending she was dying, then kidnapping Flo so she and Wyatt could be together. The story earned Brooks a 2021 Daytime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor.

Following Sally’s departure from the show, Wyatt and Flo became engaged. Yet, the happy couple has disappeared from on-screen. Their last appearance came in July when they visited Steffy and baby Hayes. Although the show says, Brooks is still under contract, that hasn’t stopped fans from worrying about the actor’s status. While Wyatt may be missing from the show, fans can see more of Brooks in his upcoming projects.
