Now in its 33rd year, the afternoon series routinely wins its time period and averages over 3.2 million viewers every day. Picked up for Seasons 34 and 35, The Bold and the Beautiful joins CBS companion The Young and the Restless, which in January was renewed through 2024.
“For over three decades, The Bold and the Beautiful has been a cornerstone of the CBS Daytime lineup,” said Amy Reisenbach, EVP Current Programs, CBS Entertainment. “The show has been a creative and ratings success due to the supremely talented cast, writers and producers that Brad Bell has assembled. Of course, none of this would have been possible without B&B’s dedicated fans, whose passion for these characters and stories is unsurpassed. We are delighted to be able to continue to offer them a daily look into the romances and rivalries between the Forrester, Logan and Spencer families.”
The news of The Bold and the Beautiful renewal comes amid a coronavirus-related Hollywood production shutdown that has suspended filming on all daytime dramas. Along with Y&R, The Bold and the Beautiful had about 4-6 weeks worth of episodes in the can when the production shutdown began March 17. The last original episode aired last month and, beginning April 27, B&B started airing repeat episodes curated into theme weeks.
“I am thrilled to dive into years 34 and 35 of The Bold and the Beautiful,” said executive producer Bradley Bell. “We are grateful to Amy Reisenbach and everyone at CBS for their incredible commitment to the series. Of course, many thanks to our loyal fans who motivate us every day with their unending passion and enthusiasm.”
As Deadline reported last week, The Bold and the Beautiful production company is currently getting ready to resume production in June if safety guidelines are met in compliance with state and city regulations.
The Bold and the Beautiful, the most-watched U.S. produced daytime drama in the world, is set in Los Angeles and tells the compelling story of high fashion, glamour, honor, romance, passion and, most importantly, family. It is a Bell-Phillip Television production. Bell is the executive producer.
Cast members include (alphabetically): Matthew Atkinson, Kiara Barnes, Katrina Bowden, Darin Brooks, Scott Clifton, Don Diamont, Jennifer Gareis, Courtney Hope, Thorsten Kaye, Katherine Kelly Lang, John McCook, Alley Mills, Annika Noelle, Denise Richards, Lawrence Saint-Victor, Henry Joseph Samiri, Rena Sofer, Aaron D. Spears, Heather Tom, Jeremy Ray Valdez and Jacqueline MacInnes Wood.
As CBS airs a Bold and Beautiful classic episode featuring Hope and Liam’s wedding in Italy, Soaps.com looks back on their love story and the various challenges they’ve overcome to be together.
1. Hope Logan (then Kim Matula) befriended Liam Cooper (Scott Clifton) and helped him connect with his biological father, Bill Spencer II (Don Diamont), when he first arrived in Los Angeles and they soon fell for one another. When Amber Moore (Adrienne Frantz) insisted she was pregnant with Liam’s baby, his romance with Hope faltered repeatedly as they tried to figure out whether or not to be together under the circumstances. They reconciled when it was revealed Liam did not father Amber’s child.
2. Hope and Liam became engaged, but Hope broke it off and left her ring on the mantle at the cliff house after catching him kissing Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood). She followed the pair to Aspen, and found herself trapped in a gondola watching Liam get married to Steffy.
3. Hope and Liam’s paths crossed during a trip to Cabo San Lucas, where he was vacationing with Steffy, and she was with Steffy’s brother, Thomas Forrester (then Adam Gregory), and they wound up sharing a kiss. They wanted to reunite but Liam stayed with Steffy after Bill faked her MRI results following an ATV accident. Once the manipulation was revealed, Liam decided to annul his marriage to Steffy and marry Hope.
Let’s get the not-so-great news out of the way first: The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful will air their last original, pre COVID-19 shutdown episodes this week — Thursday, April, 23, specifically. As we previously reported, the CBS sudsers were slightly more than a month ahead when work on both shows came to an abrupt, unprecedented halt due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The better news — particularly for soap nostalgia buffs — is how CBS plans to fill the 90-minute daytime void. TVLine has learned that beginning Monday, April 27, the network will dip into Y&R and B&B‘s collective 80-year library and present memorable theme weeks. Y&R will kick things off with a week of vintage episodes — some dating back as far as 1990 — centered on iconic Genoa City matriarch Katherine Chancellor (played by the late Jeanne Cooper).
Meanwhile, B&B in its first full week of reruns will feature encore episodes filmed on location in Monte Carlo (date range 2013-17), including two documentary-style episodes featuring behind the scenes footage (these Becoming Bold and Beautiful-branded installments previously aired on PopTV).
Cast members will provide bonus content with fresh commentary at the beginning and end of select episodes.
Ahead of next Monday’s themed-week launch, Y&R this Friday (April 24) will re-air an episode from 1996 that centered on Paul and Christine’s honeymoon (which was complicated by Phyllis’ presence). B&B‘s Friday episode will serve as an early kickoff to its Monte Carlo-themed week.
“It’s incredibly fun to offer fans an opportunity to look back at such memorable moments from Y&R and B&B,” said Amy Reisenbach, CBS’ EVP of Current Programs said in a statement. “Both of these shows have extraordinary legacies, and these specially curated episodes are only a small portion of what we hope to be able to present in the coming weeks.”
Details on additional theme weeks will be announced by CBS in the near future.
