On-Air On-Soaps can concur with today’s TV Guide Canada’s, Soapgeist column, that we also heard rumblings and speculation,  and over Daytime Emmy weekend, that John Driscoll (Chance) might be on his way out, or dropped to recurring,  as Phillip “Chance” Chancellor IV, and that this may happen before the start of fall.  Given recent developments of rumors that Phillip Chancellor III, Thom Bierdz, may be heading back to Genoa City for a bit, and that Jeff Branson is playing a different breed of detective as Ronan Malloy, by deducing the info , could this be indeed true?  So where does that leave Chloe and Heather in all this?  Hmmm.

I hope John Driscoll’s departure is just a rumor. I loved him on Guiding Light and starting watching Young and Restless, when he joined the show. I really do understand why nice characters on soaps are considered boring. I think it is good to have decent people with good character on soaps.

John Driscoll is a fabulous actor and by what I’ve read thus far, noone understands why???? If they do bring Chance back and it’s not played by John Driscoll the story isn’t going to be the same…The Y&R writers/executive, etc. need to re-thing their decision. If in fact that it was a contract negot. they should of agreed to his terms…I’ve really lost interest in watching it now and only get bits & pieces…

Angela, I read your reply to my prior post and agree with you 100%. I am also very dissapointed about John’s departure from Y&R. I do not believe that he will be back. A very good friend of his posted this comment on line on September 27th. She said “John was terminated from Y&R in July. Chance might return but John will not be returning. He is onto other things”. I know for a fact that this person is a very good friend of John’s. I have seen them together at soap opera events. She will never post anything about… Read more »

Angela, I agree with you 100% and read your reply to my prior post. Unfortunately, more information was discovered since that time. A very good friend of John’s posted this comment on line on September 22nd. She said, “Chance may return to Y&R, but John will not return. He was told of his termination in July. He is now onto other things”. I know for a fact that this person is a good friend of John’s. I have seen them together at soap opera events. She would never post anything that was not 100% accurate. Personally, I do not think… Read more »
