Might viewers have seen the last of Melody Thomas Scott on The Young and the Restless? The CBS soap isn't commenting, but Scott has revealed that she's taped her last scenes. Scott marked 32 years with Y&R earlier this year.

Don't look now, Y&R fans, but it looks like there's another round of contract with Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki Newman). The actress recently informed fans that she's not sure if she'll be seen again on The Young and the Restless.

"Actually, I don't know if or when I'll be shooting again," Scott said on Twitter. "This week's air shows were my last, until someone determines otherwise."

According to Scott, this is not a case of contract talks breaking down.

"There are no negotiation problems that I know of," she posts. "Just no scripts for the last month. Believe me, I'd love to be working every day!"

This isn't the first time that Scott has been off-screen on The Young and the Restless. The actress has had three high-profile contract stalemates in the past ten years. In 2001, sources reported that Scott had been let go from The Young and the Restless. After several weeks of uncertainty, CBS announced that Scott was staying out. Just two years ago, a contract impasse between Scott and Y&R executives resulted in Nikki Newman being written out of the show.

Scott joined The Young and the Restless in February 1979. Though it may surprise fans, the actress has received just one Daytime Emmy nomination -- an Outstanding Lead Actress nod in 1999.

In much happier news, Melody and her husband, Ed Scott, are first-time grandparents. For more on that story, click here.
