Some great news for soap fans as CBS has just announced that THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL has been renewed for two more years! This will take it through the 2021-22 broadcast season, which will be its 35th year on the air. “I am thrilled to dive into years 34 and 35 of B&B,” said Bradley Bell, Executive Producer. “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.”
B&B routinely wins its time period and averages over 3.2 million viewers every day. It is also one of the most-watched U.S.-produced daytime dramas in the world with its popularity reaching across the globe.
“For over three decades, B&B has been a cornerstone of the CBS Daytime lineup,” said Amy Reisenbach, Executive Vice President, 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.”
With the four remaining network soaps having suspended production due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some have worried this could spell doom for the daytime dramas. So even though it may be a little while longer before the cast and crew of B&B can return to work, fans can rest easy knowing that when it does happen, there are years of drama to look forward to!
