According to Soap Opera Digest, Haiduk will report to the studio next week and begin airing in September.
Tammy Taylor originated the role of Patty in 1980. Lilibet Stern played the character next, followed by Andrea Evans, when the character exited and remained off the canvas for more than two decades. Haiduk took over the role in February 2009. Patty was last seen in the Fairview Sanitarium in September 2012.
Since her last The Young and the Restless appearance, Haiduk's credits include True Blood, Chosen and Twisted, a series Y&R head writer/executive producer Chuck Pratt Jr. worked on.
