11 November 12th, 2011 Y&R’s Jeanne Cooper will be back on-screen just in time for Christmas Episodes!


Earlier this week, soap icon, Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) of The Young and the Restless took to her Facebook page to announce that she will be returning to work next week after she had to take a medical leave and was temporarily replaced by the Emmy winner Michael Learned, best know for her role on The Waltons and most recently to soap fans for her role on General Hospital.

A Y&R spokesperson has informed CBS Soaps In Depth that Jeanne will be back on air as Katherine just in time for the Christmas Holiday,  and to look for her return on the Friday, December 23rd episode.

Cooper had told her fans on Facebook:  “As most of you know I have been under the weather for quite some time now. But the good news is that I will be going back to work next week. Boy I did get hit hard with a nasty bug! Thank you all for your well wishes. They mean so very much to me. I love to all and hope to be able to post more often. Much, much love, Jeanne.”

We can’t wait to see the one and only Mrs. C again!
