Some good news over at The Young and the Restless!  After all the pink-slips and departures, fan favorite Jess Walton is on her way back to the number one soap to reprise her role as Jill Foster Abbott!

According to Nelson Branco at Soap Opera Uncensored, Jess is on her way back for a story arc that will last 4-6 weeks.  Walton told Uncensored, “I return on October 5th.  It’s a great story.”

So soapers, what could the story be?  Will Colin (Tristan Rogers) be far behind?  Will it reunite Jill and Katherine over a common cause, person, or reignite their feud, yet again? Or, it could be kid trouble?  Some blast from the past?  Weigh-in and let us know if you are excited about the return of Daytime Emmy winner Walton, even if it’s short term?

Love Jess Walton &Jill. Hopefully, she’s coming back to say goodbye to Cane & Lilly and will stick around to comfort Katherine as she bids farewell to Tucker. Kinda mean, I know but those are 3 characters who need to go.

Great news! I too wish it were longer, but maybe she will do this every 4-6 months or so and stay for a while.

I hope that her story is with Tristan Rogers. They have so much chemistry together.

Fantastic news! This was Bill Bell’s favorite character and it’s why after getting rid of the Foster’s and Brooke’s family he kept only Jill and built years of story line around her. Many fans and primarily newer viewers fail to realize or perhaps may not know that Victor or Nikki are not the true heart of Bill Bell’s YR, it has always been Jill Foster who is a true legacy character from the very beginning of YR. Jill should remain until YR goes dark.

Wow, that is a blast from the past to hear the Brooke’s and Fosters mentioned again. Once upon a time Genoa city had residents that were not all mega rich like today. Yes, we had the Chancellor’s, the Brooke’s and the Abbotts, but we used to have blue collar families like the Fosters, the Williams, Stevensons and the Reeds. I miss Jill as Jill Foster- not Jill Katherine’s long lost daughter or now Jill, Lauren’s half sister, but poor girl Jill envying the world of the rich, elbowing her way in, only to find it filled with people who had less class than regular folks at home. Ahh those were the days. Yep, early Jill Foster define the show, she was the one who was truly young and restless. Thanks Teri for trip down memory lane.

I totally agree. I just wish the part was still being played by Brenda Dickson…the only REAL JILL!

What a four/six week story and then she leaves again? Is that what she will do, back and forth to oregon like Trisha does to Tennessee?

Love her and glad she is back. Jill needs to be more front and center and become more true to what her character really is. Hope the new writer and JFP can make this happen.

I’ll take what I can get, but why, why isn’t this long term?
I’m sure she was expecting to come back full time after her leave of absence.

Christine

She moved up north so she is not in Los Angeles anymore. It would be hard for her to work full time now.

What do you mean – even if it’s short term ?
Do you know something we don’t ?
Y&R needs Jill – she’s part of the fabric of the show.
I hope she has a really great story when she returns….instead of the gobble-de-goop they’ve been serving up lately.

I can’t wait until she’s back. She is the young and the restless. I hope she’s back with a vengeance and a great story line.

Nathan Fillion Talks His Start On OLTL On ‘The View’ With Whoopi Goldberg

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Nathan Fillion visited the show promoting his series, The Rookie.  But during the beginning of his conversation with Whoopi Goldberg, he talked about what he learned from his humble beginnings in show business as Joey Buchanan on the beloved One Life to Live.

Of course, OLTL fans recall that Nathan was involved in a romantic storyline with Llanview icon, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and played the on-screen son to another icon, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Fillion shared about this time on One Life: “Everything I did and everything I do I learned on that show.  I never speak poorly on daytime … it was such a warm kind place to be.   I learned everything there.  I don’t know where an actor can go and work with people that have worked in the business for 25, 35, 40 years, and I had no idea what i’m doing …and they said, ‘no problem here is what you do’.  So, it was very good people.”

Goldberg also alluded to that she “missed the soaps” meaning All My Children and One Life to Live that shot right where they are in New York City at the ABC studios on 66th and 67th street.

Watch Nathan talk his early career and more with the ladies of The View below.  Then, let us know what you think about the sentiments he share from his time at One Life to Live via the comment section.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”
