Y&R 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 September 3rd and Wednesday September 4th on the CBS Television Network. Cooper’s real-life son, actor Corbin Bernsen, returns to the show as Father Todd, who presides over the service.
In addition, as of today, CBS.com and Y&R have a new website posted for fans dedicated to the character of Katherine Chancellor and to have an additional experience with more features on Katherine’s passing. Fans of the series 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. Also, the site will have the final, moving scene from today’s episode of Y&R and much more!
About the upcoming memorial service, Y&R executive producer Jill Farren Phelps related: “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. 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 to previously noted fan favorites returning which include: 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, Michael Damian will perform “That’s When I’ll Stop Loving You,” the song that aired in the tribute episode dedicated to Cooper in May.
