We hope you will have your hankies ready as we, and the citizens of Genoa City, say goodbye to one of the most beloved and treasured characters in soap opera history, Katherine Chancellor played by the late Jeanne Cooper.

To honor Katherine, The Young and the Restless will be airing a two-part memorial episode beginning right after Labor Day on Tuesday September 3rd and Wednesday September 4th.

In this newly released CBS Daytime promo for the two-day event, you see Corbin Bernsen as Father Todd (Jeanne Cooper’s real life son) presiding over the ceremony stating, “It’s time to celebrate all that we loved about the great Katherine Chancellor.”

But then comes the cliffhanger of an ending to the promo with a reaction shot of Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) and Jess Walton (Jill) as the voice over announce states, “And … one of her wishes is about to come true!”  What could that wish of Katherine’s be?

Watch the preview below, and let us know what you think could be the “wish come true”? And, if you are going to armed and ready with the hankies to say goodbye to the one and only Mrs. C?  Plus, make sure to check out our new interview with Melody Thomas Scott as she previews the upcoming memorial episodes and more!

they r dragging this out and Y&R are trying to make a good thing out of this fine woman’s death. What a tragedy.

Sal, go somewhere else with ur CRAP! The show and the actors ARE trying to honor her. You sre the only boob who cant see that. Just go away!

Everyone is entitled to an opinion Sal— it is just a shame when others disagree with said opinion they get personal and attack the person instead of giving sound arguments to dispute the opinion they disagree with. So don’t stop posting just be prepared to get some flack when you say something the majority of fans would disagree with.
Personally I don’t feel the show is trying to take advantage of Jeanne’s death— the fans would be in an uproar if they didn’t do something to honor the legacy of both the character and the actress who played her for 40 years. Daytime, especially this show is a slow moving vehicle and it just seems to be dragging on and on but in reality on the show Katherine just died, even though Jeanne passed away months ago.
And having that memorial show in May, just for Jeanne was a rare tribute that doesn’t get done for everyone– Jeanne was highly respected, not a saint, but the show had to first grieve their friend and co-worker, and now it is time to say goodbye to the character.
If there were trying to cash in on this, they would have the memorial in November sweeps, but they aren’t doing it. Actually it will air after a holiday weekend, not exactly prime soap watching time— but you care enough about Jeanne that you do not want to see her or death being used to someone else’s agenda– so I respect you for that, but I honestly don’t think in this case they are doing that.

You said it best. Did not feel this way until it was explained sorry I’m old and needed a brick thrown at me. The advertising of it and what seemed like a while made me feel uneasy but you made me see the light point taken and understood…………thanks so much Mary:>)

Actually, in an interview that I saw with Jill Farren Phelps, they are honoring Jeanne’s last wishes. It was also said that Jeanne would be upset with the writers if they didn’t make a storyline surrounding her death. They are doing this to keep her legacy alive so although not present she will be apart of all story lines. It[‘s different when planning a funeral for one who has really died then someone who has been killed off. It needs to be done with dignity and respect for the woman who played on that show for 40 years. The Young and Restless was Katherine’s life outside of her real home life. The cast were her second family If this is your mother would you want the thing to just be over with. Well think of us fans who are saddened by the loss of Jeanne. I think the writers did a wonderful job so far.

I think it’s lovely that they’re writing it in to give everyone some closure for the character. She was such an integral part of the show, she deserves nothing less.

And if the family wasn’t on board with this, Corbin Bernsen wouldn’t have been there.

Katherine knew who Nikki’s son is,
and he is in Port Charles, and known to all as…??

Most likely very special person to Katherine …

That’s the rumor — I think if they do reveal it is Dylan— that loud noise you will be hearing will be thousands of Y&R fans screaming NOOOOOOOO

Patrick

LOL.

irregardless….. I love when Fans real.

i have to say… Dylan – still.

takes some getting used to…. who would have thought he could “talk” so much?

and have to be “openly” loving romantic father…. and married.

it’s a little off putting some times… do I still think he belongs on GH w/Sam and daniel edward?

yes… and if SB should choose to revive his career and GH wants him back?

wow… talk about cementing his belonging in genoa city of he’s Nikki’s son.

another male for Nikki to kowtow to…. oohhh! it pains me…

I’ll love that day when she can give Victor a taste of his own medicine.

New viewer here. Only five or is years. Can someone share the billet points of Nikki’s mysterious long lost son please?

Mary SF
Mary SF

Actually I am a long time viewer and I would love the answer to that one myself. As far as I know this long lost son is a new invention– not something that was a part of her history before now. Rumor has it, Dylan will be the baby she gave away, but when and who is the bio-daddy is yet to be reveal. I was hoping since Paul was her first love that maybe it was his, but since she went to him for help- in tracking the son down that would be doubtful.

Mark it is being made up like a lot of soaps do the long lost child you never heard about. Plus in this case JFP needs to cement bringing SB over and making him the star I am and still annoyed but I just do not watch his scenes the FF button works fine.

Mark Y

So then where is this news/rumor coming from? Using a soap’s history well is certainly welcome but I hope it isn’t forced. On ATWT, Lisa had a grown son come to Oakdale and he was conceived while the character of Lisa was off the show if I remember correctly. Was Nikki written out for any length of time long, long ago?

It’s going to be a long time before anyone truly gets used to Jeanne/Katherine being gone.
It’s strange to see scenes in the Chancellor mansion without her (although there have been many over the years without Katherine in them).
It’s just different. 🙁

Miss her,miss her,miss her…..

thank for let me know, I will try to tape that 2 part storylines of great Jeanne Cooper and his real life son,Corbin.. (We all love you,Jeanne). God Bless You!!!

I bet one of her last wishes will be a plaque or statue of her so that any Genoa City resident can always visit and talk to her.

Kelly

I saw the preview of the next weeks show, and when it showed Katherine’s last wish it only showed the faces of Jill and Nikki’s and the shocking look on their faces it looks like maybe someone showed up. Jill especially it was the same look she had when Phillip Chancellor III showed up. I could be wrong, but judging by Jill’s face maybe Phillip Chancellor the 2nd is alive. All these years Katherine has wished for Phillip to not be dead right. Don’t start a rumor that it is him because I am only quessing by the look on Jill’s face. It doesn’t look like a face of seeing a statue. Hey, for a soap opera it’s not odd for a soap character to come back from the dead. LOL

Mary SF
Mary SF

I have just seen part two of this show– and you are right it is not a statue- and if it looks they just seen a ghost– well there is a reason for that.

Mary SF

The powers that be already let it slip there is going to be a park set that will be in honor of Katherine– so obviously Jill and Nikki are reacting to some kind of statue or plaque with Katherine’s image on it being unveiled, to be a monument in said park.

I think it looks great!!! I will be watching! I am glad they are doing so much and if some secrets come out of it the better… Jeanne would have loved it!!! Corbin would not be doing this if he didn’t think it was being done well!!!

The passing of Jeanne Copper is a major turning point in THE Y&R, hence it should be ntoed grandly as befitting the character. And, of course, the passing of Katherine Chancellor should be a source of plot upsets, twists, turns, and geneses. I hope Katherine (and Miss Cooper) are remembered and referenced for a long time to come… but not compromised!

Bill

The wish that is about to come true is probably Chancellor Park.

Please let these two days be about nothing but the death of Katherine Chancellor give the fans that much.

Saw the first episode today here in Parry Sound, ON, Canada and there is something covered on the wall behind the podium so I do believe that it will be a plaque honoring Katherine. Cried so much. Beautifully done and can not wait to see the second part.

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).

Courtesy/ABC

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.”

Luckinbill’s Black Label Media recently produced the war movie, 12 Strong in which he co-stared, while he was also one of the producers on the hit movie, La La Land.

Intrigued to see how Postscript turns out? Wish Thad would return as. J. T to Y&R for a another stint? Comment below.
