Posted by Roger Newcomb
THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS continues to honor the memory of the late daytime television icon Jeanne Cooper by airing a special two-part memorial service for her beloved character, Katherine Chancellor, on Tuesday, Sept. 3 and Wednesday. Sept. 4 on CBS. Cooper’s real-life son, actor Corbin Bernsen, returns to the show as Father Todd, who presides over the service.
In addition, fan favorites Lauralee Bell (Christine), Tricia Cast (Nina Webster), Beau Kazer (Brock Reynolds), Adrienne Frantz (Amber Moore), Patty Weaver (Gina Roma) and Michael Damian (Danny Romalotti) return.
Damian will perform “That's When I'll Stop Loving You,” the song that aired in the tribute episode dedicated to Cooper in May.
“It’s time for the characters of Genoa City to say their goodbyes to Katherine, and while it’s heartbreaking for everyone involved, we hope our viewers will find it a fitting tribute to both an irreplaceable character and the amazing woman who portrayed her,” said Y&R Executive Producer Jill Farren Phelps. “Katherine had some final surprises up her sleeve that will be revealed at the service and we think everyone will come away with smiles on their faces.”
In addition, as of today, fans will be able to see the postcards that Genoa City residents recently received to alert them of Katherine’s death as well as her obituary, at cbs.com. Also, the site will have the final, moving scene from today’s episode of Y&R.
