Finn recently sustained injuries in a traumatic shooting on ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’

The character of Finn Finnegan has been on The Bold and the Beautiful since 2020. Introduced as a hot leading man, Finn, played by Tanner Novlan, is the biological son of Sheila Carter and Jack Finnegan. Finn’s longtime romance with Steffy Forrester has been a primary storyline on the soap for several years, culminating in their marriage and the birth of their daughter, Haye Finnegan. 

In the most recent episodes, fans watched as Finn got involved in a confrontation between Steffy and Sheila. As Sheila pulls a gun on Steffy, Finn jumps into action to defend Steffy and takes a bullet.

With Finn critically injured and his future on The Bold and the Beautiful hanging in the balance, many fans wonder about what could be next for the character — especially because Novlan hasn’t been on the show much this year.

Novlan has played Finn since 2020, but beginning in December 2021, the actor has been mostly absent from the series that helped make him a star.

Novlan has been working on various other projects, including a pilot for a new show, Puckheads, according to IMDb. He’s also been busy filming new Liberty Mutual spots and has since become the face of the insurance company.

To date, showrunners haven’t confirmed anything about Novlan’s future. Still, reports Novlan is ending his association with The Bold and the Beautiful and will announce his departure in the coming weeks. Until then, fans will have to wait to see what happens with Finn and what Novlan says about his next steps.
