Say it isn't so! Emily O'Brien OUT at Y&R!

© JPI Studios

And the soaps keeps shrinking its cast size! Not necessarily a bad idea in most cases, but choose wisely folks. This time Soap Opera Digest has learned that Daytime Emmy nominated Emily O’ Brien who has played crazy Jana Hawkes Fisher with all the freakish storyline twists and turns she has to endure had been let-go by the The Young and the Restless.

Could it be they just wrote Emily’s character into a corner, or is there something ahead to faciliate some greater story? Stay tuned.  No final airdate has been announced for Emily, but we wish her the very best in all her future endeavors as she is one talent that should go very far, and perhaps that Y&R should not have let slip away.

Michael,

I agree with you Emily O’Brien is talented actress. Emily O’rien will be missed. Jana was written into a corner the minute TPTB allowed her to be taken hostage and presumebly loose her memory. For once Y&R should allow Cane to stay dead, Ghost Cane and Lilly storyline is stupid. Y&R is famous for bringing people back from the dead. Katherine, Adam and now Cane. If this and rich brats (Newman offspring) is all Y&R has to offer, I’m changing the channel.

Y&R continues to add mistakes to the long list of mistakes they’ve made. Jana has been written horribly over the last year, but I still had small hope she come back to normal and reunite with Kevin. Chloe and Kevin just don’t seem right together, I don’t know what it is. It’s bad enough they turn my Sharon into a COMPLETE lunatic, but now they’re cutting cast members like DG and EO’B who have great potential. Weak.

Chloe and Kevin have no chemistry and I do think they wrote Jana into a corner. They seem to be having problems pairing people up, Diane with Victor is just as lame.

Jana was one of my favorites until they destroyed the chatracter.

I’m so sorry to hear about this. Emily O’Brien is fantastic as Jana and always shines in her scenes, no matter how ludicrous! 🙂 I wish her well and hope to see her on the small screen again. That being said, I just want to say how much I thoroughly enjoy Young and the Restless. The writers have been getting so much flack lately (alright, perpetually!) but I find the #1 soap on television to be endlessly entertaining!! Sure, there are a few clunker storylines (what show on television doesn’t have one?) but I think there’s more good than bad. I will always be a faithful watcher/follower and don’t know what I would do without my daily fix of Y&R!

Sorry to see Jana, Emily leave the show. I thought she just signed a new contract. They wrote her horribly, but I still had hopes for Jana. Chloe and Kevin are awful as a couple. Cane’s ghost, Adam forced upon us, lunatic Sharon, Victor/Diane/Tucker/Nick, Hearher & Chance…All bad decisions!

I love Jana! I just hope that by cutting her from the show, they have also cut the Ryder character as well. That was a huge mistake briging him back! Now how will this all play out? I want it to be discovered that he and his waco sister are really not related to Kevin at all.

I think they should wind up the Jana story as soon as possible .It’s enough already. Emily has done a great job of acting, but let’s get on with the story. Yes, we are all hanging on to see what happens with Daniel and Billy and Victoria. It doesn’t look too good for any of them. And wait until Phyliss finds out about the baby. Let’s get on with it …..

I’ts not a good move to let jana go. I’m very sorry for the decison……..VERY VERY BAD DECISON

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.
