It looks as though THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS will be resuming production soon, following the lead currently being set by sister soap THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL. According to a report by Deadline, Y&R is eyeing Monday, July 6, as a tentative start date to begin filming new episodes.
B&B went back into production on June 17 but shut down after just one day to adjust their safety protocols. They currently hope to resume taping on Tuesday, June 23. Both soaps suspended production back in mid-March along with the rest of Hollywood due to the COVID-19 pandemic. B&B and Y&R both ran out of new episodes at the end of April and have been airing classic episodes in various theme weeks to continue keeping their audiences entertained.
Although Hollywood has permission to reopen and restart productions, there are many safety restrictions that have to be put in place, and as B&B has demonstrated, producers are quick to make adjustments in order to ensure the safety of their cast and crew. There has been no official word from Y&R as to when they will actually begin taping again, so keep checking back for updates as this story continues to develop.
