Yes! Yes! Yes! And MAB isn't writing, so I can't wait, we haven't seen Jill for years!

I heard this one through the grapevine but seeing it here, I can actually believe it. This is well worth it if they had to make some cast cuts to get her back. I'm not saying that's what happened but if it did set the stage to make a serious offer to get Jess Walton back, I think it was the right call!

So is it a farewell story? Only for four to six weeks!? I'm excited about her returning, but hearing that it's only short-term I fear we'll lose Jill Foster Abbott forever after those four to six weeks

And when she's back on Oct 5 ... the deal has just been made right!? When does Josh Griffith's stuff start airing? Is that already his work or is that something MAB forgot on her desk???

Welp, I guess, you can scratch what I said about the connection between actor dismissals and her return.

Looks like she was serious when she said she wasn't into returning full time.

bartman, It said 4-6 weeks. I just assumed it would be just a visit.

Jess has said she does not want to do the show full time again. She and her husband moving to Oregon makes it more a reality. I'm sure she was unhappy (as many of her co-stars were) with the direction Maria Bell had taken the show. I'm sure Jess will do more visits if the writing is there. Jill is too important a character to have off the canvas permanently. Here is hoping the writers can deliver the goods! God knows Maria didn't...

I suspect that this is probably what will happen. They might bring her on during sweeps periods.

I'm hoping that Jess is so happy with what she is given in those 4-6 weeks that she does want to return full0time.
I said it before - I don't see her going thru the trouble of commuting from OR if Jill isn't going to drive story and why should she?

Jill Foster belongs in Genoa City damn it!

doing the Happy Dance!

Why do I predict she will come on to say good bye to Billy and bury Cane?

Her coming back on October 5th may just coincide with Billy Miller's (Billy Abbott) exit from Y&R.

However long we have her, I'll take what we can get. I've missed her so much this year and I'm glad she's coming back. I wouldn't be surprised if Josh tinkered with Maria's scripts for Jess' return to Y&R. It's the least they can do for her after everything Maria did/didn't do with Jill.

Hopefully they can convince her to stick around longer because her presence on the show is truly missed. Such a waste of a great talent.

Everyone is forgetting she LEFT ON HER OWN the first time to spend more time with family. MAB agreed to keep the door open for her return whenever she was ready to come back. The fact that she's coming back for only 4-6 weeks confirms that. She'll probably come back again. I'm thrilled she's coming back too, but don't take things out of context. I can't wait for 10-12 so people can all breath of sigh of relief on here...at least for that one day. Then the bitching will recommence.

I love Jill so will definitely tune back in while she's in Genoa City. Right now I'm waiting for the dreadful MAB stories to play out before even thinking about checking back into YR again.

Hopefully they will leave the door open so she can make occasional visits in the future. It's just not YR without Jill.

It's a little disheartening it's only for 6 weeks, but I guess at this point I'll take what I can get. This means she won't even be around Christmas. Sad

Looks like Jill will be coming and going, coming and going. With Dan Goddard the next to leave (probably), it might be his final send off.

Where has it been said that Daniel Goddard is leaving? If anything, they want to beef up his presence on the show. That's what the bone of contention is with little miss THING (Christel Khalil). They've cut her pay, so she wants to work LESS. That and the whole thing with her not wanting to kiss black guys.

I'm pretty sure DG is on the "safe" list TBTB compiled even before MAB got the can. It's Stephen Nichols that needs to worry. The network apparently wants to get rid of the soap hoppers, and *Tucker* is not showing up in any future scripts, at least not much according to SoapUncensored.
