Soap fans always double-check the schedules during the holidays to see if their favorite daytime dramas are going to be on or not. And with the Fourth of July coming up, it’s only natural viewers might be wondering if the soaps are going to be preempted or airing reruns. Since we don’t want you to miss a single brand-new episode, we’ve got the rundown on what General Hospital, The Bold & The Beautiful, The Young & The Restless, and Days Of Our Lives have planned for the upcoming holiday!

Is General Hospital going to be on the Fourth of July?

This year, GH fans will have the Fourth of July off to enjoy the holiday with family or friends because ABC has scheduled an encore episode to air on Thursday. The episode, which originally aired on July 7, 2023, features Tracy pressuring Brook Lynn, Liz and Portia commiserating, Sonny preparing to marry Nina, and everything climaxing when shots ring out at the Metro Court pool! (And remember, because there is no new episode, don’t go looking for it Thursday evening on Hulu or because you won’t find anything!)

Is The Young & The Restless going to be on the Fourth of July?

The drama in Genoa City will not be taking a holiday so Y&R fans will want to be sure to tune in Thursday as Victor and Jack revive the Newman/Abbott feud, Diane faces some consequences, and Chelsea and Adam take a walk down Memory Lane.

Is The Bold & The Beautiful going to be on the Fourth of July?

Like its sister soap, B&B will also be new on July 4 so fans will definitely want to RSVP for the Forrester Fourth of July party. There are going to be fireworks, and not just in the sky!

Is Days of Our Lives going to be on the Fourth of July?

Since DAYS now streams on Peacock, there are no more preemptions for any reason — there’s a new episode five days a week like clockwork! So viewers will want to make sure to watch as Theresa gets the wrong end of the stick, Tate makes secret plans, and Justin tries to help Alex.

So enjoy your Fourth of July holiday while making sure you also watch the all-new episodes airing that afternoon (or stream whenever!). And for the GH fans, don’t forget to double-check your DVRs to make sure they are set to record on Friday because sometimes holidays and preemptions can screw up the schedule. All four soaps are airing new episodes on Friday, July 5, and we don’t want anyone to miss a single episode!
