Mike and Vanessa’s first grandchild Boyd was portrayed by five actors, including two sets of twins, from Seasons 1 through 8. Yet Boyd disappeared in the ninth and final season. “We have such a great cast, and it’s a big cast,” showrunner Kevin Abbott tells TVLine. “Every week, we struggle to give all the characters something to do, and another regular just eats up real estate. There are only so many lines in a show, and if Boyd was saying them, then somebody else wasn’t, and we just didn’t have a ton of Boyd storylines."
