Late last week fans of The Young and the Restless know that Daytime Emmy winner, Jeff Branson tweeted that he “may have good news” for fans of Ronan! And now CBS Soaps In Depth is reporting today that Branson is indeed heading back to Genoa City!

According to SID, “A Y&R rep confirms that Branson will be back on-screen in the coming weeks.”  So where has Ronan been? Let’s hope we get some answers. What do you think will precipitate his re-emergence on to the canvas? And, for how long will Branson stick around this time?

Stay tuned!

I adore Jeff Branson and I’m thrilled to hear he’s returning to Y&R. It hasn’t been the same without him, but I’ll admit–I’d be even more thrilled if Gina Tognoni would join the show after OLTL ends. Those two made a great on-screen pair on GL.

I am trying to figure out WHY MAB would piss off FanBases of characters already on Y&R to the point of Exit, but then clamor to bring over Actors from other soaps that have failed because of poor ratings. Ronan’s character is a prime example. Not every viewer is a long-term one nor a fan of multiple shows. No offence to the actor but he is NOT a fit for Y&R at this time but then, neither is Nina, Paul, Diane and a Host of others, including the recently hired Genie Francis. Does MAB have any idea of where Y&R is headed, I mean really?

Interesting. Just when we find out Tucker has a son. Coincidence? Did we ever find out who his father was? Ronan comes to town to save his father’s life? Stay tuned!

wtf? Then you’re saying Tucker Raped Nina…? Cuz that be the only way he’d be Baby Daddy…duh! Glad you’re not writing for show…LMAO

Tucker isn’t Ronan’s father….it was already established when Ronan found out he was sick ….he looked up his bio -dad and found out he had died from the same disease.

This is a soap…why would it not make sense? After all Cane just came back to life! Maybe it would be better if we all wrote the show instead of the DA’s that are!

Good news! I really hated the way they just sent him off and left us (and poor Nina) hanging. Finally we will get some answers!

who cares anymore though??? All boring…including Nina zzzzzz
In and out sons on rotation….??
Y&R needs to decide on which quick…
cuz we are all sick of it…

Just watched John Driscoll’s (Chance) exit earlier this week.
And was wondering if we’d ever see Ronan again….I had a feeling that story wasn’t quite fininished.
I am very glad Jeff Branson will be back.

Glad he is coming back,hopefully not to be with heather,please. wish they would hurry up and bring him back,tired of waiting. love him.

‘Santa Barbara’ Episodes May See Light of Day Yet; Will the Beloved Soap Opera Come to Streaming?

For decades, soap opera fans around the world have wanted a chance to see Santa Barbara episodes again. The soap, which first aired on NBC back on July 30, 1984 aired for only 9 seasons until the network pulled the plug after diminishing ratings and multiple changes in writing and producing regimes. The show last aired on January 15th, 1993.

Santa Barbara was co-created and initially produced and co-written by the legendary team of Bridget and Jerome Dobson. At the recent 51st annual Daytime Emmys, Jerome was honored with the Gold Circle medal for his over 50 years of work and accomplishments within the medium. Sadly his wife, Bridget passed away earlier this year in January at the age of 85.

The show featured an all-star soap cast throughout its run which included, at times: Marcy Walker, A Martinez, Dame Judith Anderson, Robin Wright, Justin Deas, Eileen Davidson, Lane Davies, Nancy Lee Grahn, Kim Zimmer, Jack Wagner, Jed Allan, Louise Sorel. Judith McConnell, Roscoe Born, Sydney Penny, Todd McKee, Terry Lester, Justin Gocke, Nicolas Coster and many more.

During a livestream conversation on Friday, June 21st, Jerome Dobson and A Martinez visited the Michael Fairman Channel to reminisce about the success and ups and downs of Santa Barbara and much more.

Many people in the live chat and many around the world (Santa Barbara was very popular internationally) have wanted to know with the legal issues it appears had plagued the show for years, if there would be a chance that fans could ever see Santa Barbara episodes again, and if they could become available or streamed?

Dobson shared exclusively, “Well, there’s some legal footwork being done right now about that kind of possibility. There’s been so much demand to see Santa Barbara, and so it’s not totally out of the question.” Martinez (ex-Cruz Castillo) reaction to that possibility was that of “Wow!” That was also the same reaction by several viewers watching the live conversation in the chat, because that would be a soap dream come true for many.

So, do you hope that the legalities can finally be worked out and you could relive the seasons of ‘Santa Barbara’ all over again? Let us know in the comment section below. You can check out the live chat with A and Jerome below, the moment happens around the 56:18 mark.

Ryan Paevey Makes Statement on Why He is Stepping Back from Acting While Being ‘Grateful to General Hospital for Giving a Green Actor a Chance’ and ‘Hallmark for Changing My Life’

GH and Hallmark fan favorite, Ryan Paevey (ex-Nathan West) wanted to clear the air after numerous reports and rumors had him quitting acting altogether and what that meant for any future projects in Hollywood he may have had planned.

Paevey released an exclusive statement to where he shared what is going on in his life. Back on June 19th, Ryan deactivated his Twitter and Facebook accounts and he may have deactivated his Instagram account on Friday as well, or as of this writing.

For Ryan, the decision to change his current life’s trajectory came after a series of events; chief among them moving closer to home to take care of his ailing mother who is battling lung cancer and social media scammers.

Here is what Ryan shared: “Hey everyone…so first and foremost, I am a bit apprehensive that I even have to make a statement like this. I am certainly accustomed to a certain degree of gossip, but the past few weeks in particular have gotten out of control with speculation from third parties that have taken my words and expanded upon them to meet their narrative, or flat out misrepresented my words or misconstrued their meaning. I have always been an open book, and one who speaks his mind truthfully and directly, and it is unfortunate that we live in a world where social media makes it very easy to twist one’s words; I am often unaware it is even happening until someone from my team messages me in a panic, and so I feel it best to make a formal statement through HEAVY.”
