The series is bringing back Shemar Moore (Malcolm Winters), Victoria Rowell (Drucilla Winters) and Mishael Morgan (Hilary Curtis Winters) who will participate and their pay final respects to St. John.

Shemar Moore will reprise his role as Neil’s brother for two episodes airing April 25-26, while Rowell and Morgan will appear as themselves in a special tribute episode on April 29th.

That tribute episode will also include former and current cast members sharing remembrances of St. John supported by clips from Kristoff’s enduring run on the series.

According to EW: “The Y&R plot line will address St. John’s passing beginning April 23.  Genoa City learns of the unexpected death of Neil, so family and friends gather to remember their beloved father, colleague, brother, and friend. The story will continue through the remainder of the week.”

Anthony Morina, (Executive Producer, Y&R) noted: “We all miss Kristoff immensely and are understandably still in a bit of shock. Our hope is that this storyline and tribute episode airing in April will honor the legendary character Kristoff helped create, and provide our audience with the opportunity to say a meaningful goodbye to Neil Winters.”

St. John passed away on February 3rd at the age of 52.

    Beyond estactic that the pwtb have graciously put aside their differences with Victoria Rowell to honor the life of Kristoff
    His fans know how special and treasured his onscreen and offscreen relationship with Victoria was!
    Ofcourse it was never doubted that if offered Mishael and Shemar would be present!
    Thank you to Tony and Josh and everyone else involved for giving Kristoff the tribute he deserves
    Greedily i also wish Olivia and Mamie would also appear
    Cant wait…
    Hopefully on a sidenote i hope if anything goods come out of this would be the beginning of mending Victorias relationship with Y n r and getting ball rolling for her or Mishaela return. Both were so vital to y n r!
    Cant wait!..Neils presence if and always will be missed

    It’s nice to see that Y&R has planned a special tribute for Neil and not a lazy send-off for a legacy character that truly changed the face of the show. I credit that to the new EP and Head Writer, because under Mal Young, Kristoff St. John’s airtime was drastically reduced, and Neil was underused in story when he could (and should) have been front-and-center. It’s too bad that Neil wasn’t involved in more front-burner story over the last few years, and it doesn’t make his passing any easier, but it’s nice that Y&R will be honouring his memory with a proper storyline. And it will be great to see Shemar, Victoria and Mishael back on screen, even if it will be brief.

      Yes, I was hoping to see more of Neil/Kristoff and I think we would have.

    I wonder if they will bring back Sofia, Mamie, Olivia or Moses? Neil and Olivia had unfinished business so she should DEFINITELY show up. I would love to see Mamie too. Here is hoping! Will Lily be sprung from the clink? Christel and Kristoff were close but I havent seen any news about her returning which is odd.

    It is a lovely and creative response to honor one who left us far too soon.

    I’m just sad Kristoff never truly had THE front burner storyline in so many years. I think that might have changed with the new regime. BTW, you start seeing Josh Griffith’s name as co head writer on Wednesday’s show.

    All I’m going to say is this, Y&R better do Mr. St. John and Neil justice.

    This is a legacy character that deserves a legacy send off.

    Very ecstatic to see Ms. Rowell is included, even if it’s a self portrayal.

    Even though we all have an ideal wish list, what is being presented so far sounds promising, respectable.

    Hopefully this will become a continuous mending period to resurrect Drucilla and at least have a permanent surviving Winters to carry the Winters legacy.

    Brings tears, so glad they are not only doing something special with the plot-line and the return of Mr. Moore, but an additional tribute. Ms. Morgan and Ms. Rowell were gems and it’s only fitting they will contribute. Much respect and continued prayers.

    I think it’s great that Shemar is still willing to return to Y&R and he always remembers and honors his time there.

    I will have to have the tissues handy.

REPORT: Days of our Lives Targets September Production Restart

Looks like Salem and Days of our Lives will be back in full-swing come September, if the target date holds true as revealed today by Deadline.

According to their sources, Corday Productions, who produces the long-running NBC daytime drama, sent out an email to cast members on Thursday notifying them of their intent to resume production come September 1st.

However for this article; reps for NBC, Corday and Sony Pictures TV declined to comment.

Days of our Lives has had enough shows banked through early October of this year, so was not pressed to get back into production amidst the coronavirus pandemic as much as CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful (which went back into production a week and half ago), and The Young and the Restless and General Hospital who are targeting a mid-July restart.

All three of the shows, except for DAYS ran out of original episodes to air, back at the end of April of this year.

So, excited to hear that their may be plans ahead come fall for DAYS to come to back and tape new episodes? Comment below.

B&B’s Supervising Producer, Casey Kasprzyk Shares: “Just Finished Viewing Our First Produced Episode Since Starting Production Back Up!”

In a tweet late on Thursday, the supervising producer of The Bold and the Beautiful, Casey Kasprzyk, shared his enthusiasm at completing the first major hurdle for the soap going back into production during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Showing a viewing copy on disc of the first new episode produced for B&B in months, Casey said: “Just finished viewing our first produced episode since starting production back up! So proud of Team Bold & Beautiful. Great shows airing soon”

The disc had airshow number #8321 on it, and a question mark as to when it will make it to air.

The fact that The Bold and the Beautiful is the first daytime drama to get one new episode completed is a step forward amidst the spike in COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County and the state of California.

Now soap fans will have to wait and see if General Hospital and The Young and the Restless begin their productions in the middle of July; as last projected by both series, or if there will be further delays due to the ongoing crisis for the safety of everyone involved at the shows.

So, excited to learn Casey’s news that there is a new episode of B&B on the horizon for viewers to see? Comment below.

‘Strahan, Sara and Keke’ Canceled by ABC; Show Aired In Timeslot That Once Housed ‘All My Children’

No matter a network tries to do, replacing All My Children, which ran for 41 years on ABC has remained as everyone that follows the world of daytime drama knows, problematic.  Now come word via Page Six that Strahan, Sara and Keke has been canceled.

The show hosted by Michael Strahan, Sara Haines and Keke Palmer if you recall, replaced the foodie show, The Chew which ran for seven seasons and was the first show to air in the timeslot that belonged for over four decades to All My Children. 

Back in March of this year, Strahan, Sara and Keke took a break to make way for ABC’s News  Pandemic: What You Need to Know, a daily coronavirus report anchored by Amy Robach, Dr. Jen Ashton and sometimes TJ Holmes.

However, because the show did well in that two-week experimental run it morphed into GMA 3: What You Need to Know.  The new version of the show also talked about hot topics in the current news cycle, as well.

ABC’s Catherine McKenzie began producing the “GMA3” show four months ago and the network officially announced her as Executive Producer of the program on Thursday.

While ABC has yet to officially announce Strahan, Sara and Keke is over, a spokesperson told Page Six: “We’re proud of our teams at ‘SSK’ and ‘GMA3’ and how quickly they transitioned to producing a daily show to give people the news and information they need during an unprecedented pandemic, and conversations continue about how the show will evolve in the months ahead.”

It appears that Strahan, Sara and Keke won’t be returning; the future as many of their staff have transitioned over to ‘GMA 3’ with producers from ABC News Live, (the streaming division), helmed by McKenzie.

As for the futures of Strahan, Haines and Palmer; Strahan will continues to host Good Morning America, and they are all actively under contract with the network.

So, what do you think of  ‘Strahan, Sara and Kek’e being replaced by ‘GMA 3: What You  Need to Know’?  How long do you think that show will last in the timeslot once taken up by residents of Pine Valley? Comment below.
