Is Drucilla Winters returning to Young and the Restless in 2019?

Many characters have returned from the dead on Young and the Restless. It wouldn't be shocking if we found out that Drucilla had somehow survived the fall. But it's unlikely that Dru is returning to the show because of the severed relationship between Victoria and CBS.

Victoria left the show because she was unhappy with the lack of African American representation. She expressed her desire to return and viewers also demanded her back. But CBS stated that they didn’t think having her back would be the best creative decision. She later sued the show and Sony claiming that she has been blacklisted for speaking up. After leaving Y&R, Victoria began starring on The Rich and The Ruthless.

    If all of the other actors can be revived, why not Victoria Rowell? If she was speaking up for minoroties, why was she fired? 80% of Y&R's audience is African American. The Young and the Restless could not possibly feel differently about one set audience. Should I start a protest. I have the power!!!
