The Young and the Restless Spoilers: Peter Bergman Signs On For Five More Years
According to Deadline, Peter has signed up to play Jack Abbott for another five years, which is almost unheard of in the daytime television world these days. It’s also been noted that The Young and the Restless has been renewed through 2024, which means there is plenty of twists and turns ahead.

Speaking to CBS Watch in a new interview, Peter opened up about what the recognition means to him. He said, “I’m the most grateful actor you will ever meet. The Emmys have been very kind to me in the past, and I’m very excited about going this year. It never gets old—23? That’s a crazy number!

Looking back at his career, Peter added, “For the first 12 years at Y&R, every night of the Emmys, David [Canary] of All My Children and his wife, Bob [Robert] Woods of One Life to Live, Susan Lucci [Erica, AMC] and her husband, and Mariellen and I would go to dinner before the Emmys. It was a tradition. Kelly Ripa [Hayley, AMC] and her husband Mark [Consuelos, Mateo, AMC] were there one year, and one time Wayne Gretzky and his wife, Janet, joined us. We had these wonderful dinners before going to the Emmy Awards, and those are treasured memories.”
