"Jeanne is an integral part of our show and we look forward to her imminent return," said Executive Producer/Head Writer Maria Arena Bell in a statement. "We have great storyline coming up for Mrs. Chancellor."



Learned, who won raves for a recent guest stint as a terminally ill patient on General Hospital, will first air as the Genoa City matriarch on Nov. 10. Cooper, who has been ill for a few weeks, is expected to return to Y&R later this month.
