Emmy-winning Jeanne Cooper played Katherine Chancellor on Young and the Restless from 1974 until shortly before her death in 2013. The character is still referred to today and the current regime wisely put a portrait of the late matriarchal figure in the Chancellor living room, ensuring her presence on the show.

In light of Y&R running out of original episodes due to the coronavirus, the top-rated serial is now dipping into the vault to present five Katherine-centric episodes that present Kay at her finest!

Here’s what viewers can see, starting Monday!
