He is multi-Daytime Emmy winning actor, who is synonymous with daytime drama, and now he is about to achieve another milestone in his career.  Of course, we are talking about The Young and the Restless’ Peter Bergman (Jack Abbott).

Bergman is set to celebrate his 30th anniversary with the top-rated soap when he was first introduced to viewers in the role back on November 27th, 1989.  In his honor, the series is delivering a special episode to air on Monday, November 25th.

In the episode, Jack takes a walk down memory lane as he reads his sister’s, Traci Abbott (Beth Maitland), family memoir, that details the triumphs and tragedies of the iconic Abbott family.  Also, viewers will be treated to classic clips and appearances from the Abbott family, including fan favorites Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott) and Maitland.

Bergman shares his sentiments in a statement:  “It’s been a real joy for me, to retrace Jack’s footsteps over the last 30 years. I am struck by the enduring friendships I have made at Y&R, and deeply grateful to our fans, who have stood by Jack, cheered him on, or waited patiently for him to get his act together…for three decades!  I’m happy, amazed and truly thankful…and it sure feels good. Thank you one and all.”

During his 40 years in daytime television, including 10 years as Dr. Cliff Warner on All My Children, Bergman has received 21 Emmy Award nominations for Lead Actor, and won three times.  In addition, Peter took home two Soap Opera Digest awards for Lead Actor, as well as three Soap Opera Update MVP Awards throughout his soap performances, making Peter the most decorated actor in Y&R history.

Bergman got emotional on today’s November 15th episode of The Talk sharing his love for his co-stars and the Abbott family.  Watch the clip below.

Now let us know, if you are excited to see the Jack Abbott episode coming up on Y&R via the comment section for Peter’s 30 years in Genoa City.

I agree with you Kay. The Abbott’s always, in my opinion, bought class to Geona City. I am looking forward to his stand alone show. It will be nice to see the Abbott’s in their prime. Especially good old John. Thanks for listening and happy viewing

Me, too, DMRR! (Remember Cliff and Nina’s gorgeous wedding?? That, and Bergman’s classic Vicks Formula 44 commercial, “I’m not a doctor, but I play one on tv”…Lol….) Hence for me, Peter will always be Dr. Cliff Warner, just as the late, great Terry Lester will always be the REAL Jack Abbott!!

Yes Shay Terry’s Jack version was fantastic we lost him because of Bill Bell deciding his daughter had to be in every storyline !

I loved Terry Lester. He was one of the two reasons I started watching the show. The other was all the wonderful cat fights Tracy and Lauren had first over Danny and than Brad. Ah the good old days

Congratulations to an amazing actor! I am a huge Peter Bergman fan – he is my favourite actor and Jack my favourite character on Y&R. I also happen to think he’s the best actor on the show.

Corbin Bernsen to Reprise His Role of Arnie Becker in ‘LA Law’ Revival Pilot

Corbin Bernsen (Father Todd, The Young and the Restless) and the son of Y&R’s late great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) has signed on to reprise his signature primetime television role of womanizing lawyer Arnie Becker in the upcoming LA Law revival pilot.

This makes Corbin the co-lead of the series alongside Blair Underwood (Ex-OLTL) who previously signed on to the pilot to reprise his role of Jonathan Rollins.  ABC has greenlit the pilot.

According to Deadline, it is believed that Bernsen and Underwood will be the only original members of the mid 80’s-90’s legal drama on NBC in the pilot, but more may guest-star if the show gets picked up for a full-season order.

In the premise of the reboot, the law firm of McKenzie Brackman, now named Becker Rollins, reinvents itself as a litigation firm specializing in only the most high profile, boundary pushing and incendiary cases.  The show will feature familiar characters working alongside new ones on the most hot button issues of the day.  As for Bernsen’s Becker, now in his 60’s, look for him to struggle with a rapidly shifting sexual and political landscape.

The original LA Law ran for eight seasons from September 15, 1986 to May 19, 1994 on NBC.

So, what do you think of Corbin taking on the role of Arnie Becket in a revival of LA Law? Would you be intrigued to check out the show if it makes it to series? Comment below.

Melissa Claire Egan Teases Her Return to Y&R: “Chelsea’s Missed You All!! Excited to be Back in Genoa City Soon”

Looks like Melissa Claire Egan’s (Chelsea) maternity leave is soon coming to a close and she will be back taping new episodes of The Young and the Restless sooner than later!

Back on August 21, Missy and her husband Matt Katrosar welcomed their son, Caden into the world and since then fans have gotten a glimpse of her life as a new mama via her Instagram posts.

Viewers of Y&R last saw Egan’s Chelsea via video calls, but that will be coming to an end when the often trouble-making Chelsea is back in the mix full force.

At the start of this week, Egan posted on Instagram: “Chelsea’s missed you all!! Excited to be back in Genoa City soon🤗 (sans the mental hospital scrubs, good for baby bump hiding tho!). What do you think is in store for Chelsea when she returns???”

And that’s a great question! What do you think will happen when Chelsea returns on-screen?

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: What Did You Think of Victoria and Ashland’s Wedding? (PHOTOS)

Friday’s episode of The Young and the Restless brought with it the vows and the “I do’s” of Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) to Ashland Locke (Richard Burgi), and the couple are now officially married.  However, pangs of guilt, emotion, and ‘how to solve a problem like Ashland’ also filled the ceremony.

Leslie Brooks (Janice Lynde) played the piano, Tess (Cait Fairbanks) sang a song, and Victoria came down the aisle with her father, Victor (Eric Braden).  It was actually the moments between Eric Braeden and Amelia Heinle that were the emotional high points as you could see the love between the characters, and the actors.

With the nuptials in Tuscany, which brought Hunter King and Michael Mealor’s characters of Summer and Kyle back into the mix, along with Janice Lynde, Victoria was said to never look more beautiful and she chose, after all of Sally’s (Courtney Hope) machinations, to actually wear the dress Sally designed, which was a smash!

The drama came from what was Gaines (Jamison Jones) going to do and what ammo did he have to bust up the nuptials in his revenge against Ashland.  Nick (Joshua Morrow) comes upon him in a upstairs terrace room, and instead of helping him stop the wedding, he actually locks him in the room.

Nick then has a decision to make …. does he stop the wedding, which he knows his sister would never forgiven him for (he was already uninvited to the nuptials), or bust open the situation?  It is none other than Adam (Mark Grossman) that tells Nick to look at Victoria before he makes his move saying, “She’s happy. Do you really want to be the guy who wipes that look off her face on what should be the best day of her life?” Just then, Ashland and Victoria become husband and wife, They kiss as everyone in attendance applauds.

Throughout the wedding, another highlight was every time the camera would pan to Billy.  His face said it all as it was exceedingly and increasingly hard for him to watch Victoria marry another man, let alone Ashland. Jason Thompson played those moments to perfection. After the wedding, Billy goes up to the newlyweds and wishes them well.  During the ceremony, he received a text from Gaines, but did not read it.  When he later opens it, there is a video attachment.

Meanwhile, back in the upstairs room, Gaines is confronted by Nick, Adam, and Victor, who Adam alerted to the situation; instead of calling security, which Nick asked him to do.  A stern Victor tells Gaines that he’s still a threat to Victoria and her company, and he won’t allow that to happen.

When we go back to Billy, who is now with Lily (Christel Khalil), he looks shocked by what he just saw in the video message from Gaines.  He shows it to Lily saying: “He (Gaines) just sent us a video of himself detailing all of Ashland’s crimes including the evidence.” Lily knows this is huge news! Billy tells her that if they don’t publish within the hour, Gaines is going to send it around to other press outlets.  When Lily asks, “What should we do?”  The camera pans to Billy looking at Victoria and Ashland, where Victoria is smooching with her new hubby.  Billy looks very concerned and very torn. Will he be the person to break the backstory of Ashland and his crimes including the forged will and his conniving for Camilla Rhodes’ fortune… or will he not do anything with the intel to save his enduring relationship with Victoria?  We fade to black.  Tune-in Monday.

So, what did you think of the wedding of Ashland & Victoria? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first, check out some of the moments and looks from the wedding in front of the camera and behind the scenes in our photo gallery below.
