Hot on the heals of the news of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ renewal came the news that THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL has also been renewed. Although fans of B&B were understandably disappointed to learn it had only been picked up for one more year while Y&R got extended for four. But B&B’s supervising producer Casey Kasprzyk explained things during a recent episode of his BOLD LIVE YouTube series.

“I saw a lot of comments saying, ‘Hm. Y&R got four years, B&B only got one,’” he said. “Well, the truth is, we are two different shows with two different contracts, two different deals. So it’s not really my place to comment on it other than to say that we’re on a three-year deal and so the third year was picked up.

“So next year will be when we negotiate for a brand new contract,” Kasprzyk added. “So we are currently on a deal that gives us one more year. So we’re on through 2025. Thank you, CBS, we love being on CBS and we couldn’t be happier. So we’ll have more news next year and hopefully, we’ll be here for a very, very long time. Just wanted to clear that up.”

Created by William J. Bell and Lee Phillip Bell, B&B premiered back on March 23, 1987, and is preparing to celebrate its 37th anniversary later this month. Over the years, it has become incredibly popular internationally with millions of viewers around the globe tuning in to the drama surrounding the wealthy Forrester family. The soap has also taken home numerous Daytime Emmy Awards, including three for Outstanding Drama Series.

So while right now, fans are only assured of getting one more year of B&B, we’re sure that in 2024, the new contract will promise to deliver many more years of drama, romance, and excitement!
