We guess no matter what writing team is heading up The Young and the Restless, there is always an opportunity to bring back the deceased John Abbott!  Actor Jerry Douglas reported himself via his facebook page , that John will make another ghostly return.

Jerry posted,  “To all my dear friends and devoted fans. I am delighted to tell you that our new producer and head writer have written me in a couple of new shows.  One is on Oct. 18th and the other Oct. 26th. Hope you enjoy them.”

So what will prompt visions of John via Jack (Peter Bergman) this time?  And, the bigger question, do you think Y&R made a huge mistake “killing-off” the head of the Abbott clan years ago?  Let us know!

Bring him back from the dead this show has suffered without him. Here is how you do it Dina his first wife pulled him from the hospital and he has been in a coma all this time now he wakes up. They bring people back from the dead all the time with weaker plot lines then this would be.

I agree! His children need him back and then he could rekindle his relationship with Jill (who is coming back soon) since she has not had any luck with men in the last few years!

John Abbott is dead. Boneheaded decision once upon a time but he is dead. My beef with Y&R is its over-the-stop storytelling. Please don’t give me impossible-to-believe resurrection tales. Now, maybe John Abbott has a longlost brother, someone whohas similar qualities to John but maybe not the money or power. Such a character — giving Jerry Douglas something different to play — could look to Jack for help financially and maybe become the angel Jack needs in is life to rally the Abbotts and restore the family. I would love to see Ashley and Tracey more engaged. Keep Billy on… Read more »

I think they all ready did something like a that a few years back. I think Jack was trying to gaslight Gloria into thinking John was alive so he hired this look a like actor to play John back from the grave. At least I think it was Jack that hired him or was it Gloria who hired him to gas light Jack? Does someone remember the details of that storyline? Either way I know they had the look a like John on the scene for a couple of months. But I agree, they shouldn’t have killed off John in… Read more »

Who ever wrote the killing off of John Abbott should be flogged. Worst mistake to kill a beloved character with such rich history. Hope they write better story for Gloria, I love that bitch. LOL

That’s a tough call ….John Abbott is one of the best loved TV dads – I think.
I was shocked when they killed him off.
But I like the fact that they bring him back periodically,because he is such a beloved character.
I always look forward to his scenes with Jack.
So to that end keep ’em coming.

GREAT NEWS! Jerry Douglas’ presence is sorely missed on Y&R, but so gratifying to know that the writers are cognizant of this and keep the fans happy. The guy can do no wrong! There’s something about seeing the patriarch (second only to Victor) on my screen that makes this long time fan feel so connected to this show. Loving Y&R right now!

I agree. Have you notice even the acting has gotten better since the new team shows have been airing? We are a day ahead here in Canada so I’ve have already seen Monday’s show and it is good. The pace picks up. There is a lovely scene between Lauren and Michael that has been missing for a long time. And Adam finally has something to do; I even like what they are doing with Chelsea. Maybe anything next to MAB reign looks good, but I am with you, I am thrilled and look forward to seeing if this keeps up.

I don’t care that the former regime killed John off. I would welcome him back no matter how thin the reasoning. Heck, I know it’s never been done before, but I’d be delighted if they did a simple voice-over or intro by Brad Bell apologizing for making the worst mistake in Y&R history and then letting the show begin with John at the airport, returning after a long trip overseas (presumably to see Dina Mergeron perhaps?). The only thing that matters is getting Jerry Douglas back where he belongs (and bring Traci back full-time as well). The Abbotts need to… Read more »

Y&R need to bring John Abbott back to the show. Think about it, there is no formable enemy for Victor and Katherine needs him, since Murphy”s character is weak. Consider this idea. Show John in a dark dungeon, dirty and with some memory lost. He went to a meeting on behalf of Jabo and was kidnapped. Everyone is under the assumption he is dead because they see him die in the hospital, but in actuaility another guy is given John’s face and memories like in Days with John Black and sent in his place. But, only this guy is infused… Read more »

Eileen Davidson, Vince Van Patten & Caitlyn Jenner In Cast Of New Sitcom ‘Duke of the Valley’

A fictional apartment building featuring a set of very eccentric tenants in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California is the backdrop for a new indie comedy sitcom based on the memoirs of the late Dick Van Patten, best known for his role on the ABC series, Eight is Enough.

The show entitled, Duke of the Valley is co-created by Dick’s son, Vince Van Patten and his grandson, Duke Van Patten, who also wrote the series together. In addition, Vince is also directing and one of the producers of the series.

According to The Wrap, Caitlyn Jenner will star as Heather a transgender “white trash” woman who sells perfume at the counter of Macy’s.  Others in the cast include: Vince Van Patten’s wife and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Eileen Davidson (Ashley, Y&R and Ex- DAYS and RHOBH), who plays Brenda, a washed-up actress who can’t accept that her career in showbiz is over.

Vince Van Patten takes on the role of a homeless killer named Skipy, who demands to camp outside the apartment building.  Meanwhile, Duke Van Patten plays himself as an actor in Hollywood living in a dingy apartment building in the San Fernando Valley that happens to be owned by his ‘crazy uncle Jimmy”, played by none other than James Van Patten.

Duke of the Valley is currently in production, but without a network or streaming service attached to it yet.  Thus, no release date has been set as this time either.

So, what do you think of the premise of Duke of the Valley featuring Caitlyn, Eileen and Vincent? Comment below!
