Peter Bergman may not have taken home his fourth Daytime Emmy at Friday’s 49th annual ceremony, but the adored Young and the Restless star has already made out handsomely: according to Deadline, the actor, who has played Jack Abbott since 1989, has signed a new, five-year contract to stay on the CBS soap opera.
The significance of Bergman’s deal is due to the rarity of five-year daytime contracts today; they usually last between one to four years.
The actor is still more well-liked than ever, and it’s obvious that Sony Pictures TV, which produces the CBS soap for the network, and fans alike cannot envision the drama without Bergman.
Though daytime dramas frequently feature new actors, audiences never grow weary of the seasoned pros. They resemble a family.
There’s little reason to think The Young and the Restless won’t continue for the duration of Bergman’s new agreement even though it has just been renewed through 2024.
For 34 years in a row, the daytime soap opera Y&R, created by William J. Bell and Lee Phillip Bell, have had the most viewers.
At the Daytime Emmys on Friday on CBS, Bergman was up for a record-breaking fourth Emmy John McCook of The Bold and the Beautiful ended up winning in the Outstanding Actor category.
Peter Bergman was nominated for his role as Jack 23 times; he was awarded three Oscars (1991, 1992, and 2002.
He received his first Emmy nomination for his work on All My Children from 1979 through 1989, where he played Dr. Cliff Warner, before joining Y&R.
