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 the canvas. Maybe have an effect on Jack and Kyle. Maybe this Uncle Abbott could be a bit of a con artist or ladies man, too.

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 the first place, but i don’t want to see John come back from the dead. I like the way it is now, when his kids need fatherly advice they imagine he is there and what he would say to them, whether it is a real ghost or just what they are seeing in their mind it is charming and sweet and I’m glad the new team is using it.

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!

Wait until you see the promos for next week this show is on it’s way back to us you feel excited again it goes back on my DVR Monday I am thrilled.

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 be restored to their important status on this show.

I’m just haveing the feeling that You may bring Mr john Abbott back one day,why not lol:-)

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 with agressive cancer cells that consumes his body and he dies. The kidnappers of the real john’s plan to get a hositle pay back fires when John dies unexpectedly before he could drain the monies from the Jabo accounts.
I’m full of ideas. We need to keep the older actors actively in the forefront.

Nathalie Kelley Says She Is Not Returning To DYNASTY For Season 2

In a surprise admission during an interview with E Online, one of the core members of CW’s Dynasty reboot, Nathalie Kelley revealed she is not filming season 2 of the primetime sudser when it resumes filming next month.

Kelley plays Blake’s (Grant Show) wife, Cristal, who ended the season one cliffhanger in a precarious predicament after being shot by Claudia Blaisdel (Brianna Brown), while the Carrington mansion went up in flames, as well.

Kelley tells E! “I won’t be returning for Season 2.”  She went on to say as of the fate of Cristal:  ” Is it a coma? Is it death? … I actually don’t know. But I know that I’m not going to Atlanta in July, that I’m staying (in Los Angeles) … I’ve got my life back.”

Dynasty returns for its all-new season beginning on Friday, October 12th.

So, disappointed to hear there will be no Nathalie on season 2 of Dynasty?  How do you think they will write Cristal out of the story:  Coma … her body found will not be found … or is she truly dead?  Share your theories in the comment section below.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
