Nichelle Nichols will be seen on The Young and the Restless soap opera in September.
The actress will portray Lucinda, “a character who shares an ’emotional connection’ to a main cast member,” in a two-episode arc.
“I’m thrilled and honored to be a member of the cast of this historic moment in daytime television,” said Nichols. “I’ve been a huge fan of The Young and the Restless for decades. I’m equally honored to be from Chicago like the Bell family who created this incredible TV show.”
The two-episode arc will begin on the 11,000th episode of The Young and the Restless, which will air on September 1.
