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.
