Bold and the Beautiful is on hiatus now and showing reruns, including some with Maya Avant Forrester (Karla Mosley). That has many fans asking when she’ll be back. Here’s the latest on Maya, her portrayer Karla, and what’s coming on B&B on CBS daytime.
Is Maya Avant Forrester Done at Bold and the Beautiful?
With B&B on hold, of course, no actors are working right now. However, CBS is working on plans to get the soap back to work. In fact, the behind-the-scenes chatter says they’re shooting to resume filming in June, but does that mean Maya Avant will be in those new scenes?
Plus, Bold and the Beautiful must pick back up with its cliffhanger storylines. Those center on Sally-Wyatt-Flo, and Shauna-Ridge-Brooke. To date, Maya wasn’t part of these plotlines. So, she’ll likely remain on the sidelines until these stories resolve and they launch new ones.
It’s also important to remember that Bold and the Beautiful rotates featured actors in and out. For instance, the Steffy-Liam-Hope story is sidelined right now, while these other stories are center stage. So, it wouldn’t make sense for B&B to pull Maya into one of those storylines.
What is Karla Mosley’s Status at B&B?
Also, as Bold and the Beautiful returns to filming, they’ll minimize how many actors and crew work on each set. We’ll likely see few to no background extras working – and little to no use of recurring characters – at least for now. And that brings us back around to Karla Mosley and Maya.
A year ago, in May 2019, news broke that Karla Mosley’s contract status shifted from contract to recurring with Bold and the Beautiful. And it’s been more than a year since Karla had scenes as Maya Avant, in March of 2019.
So, it seems a long shot that Bold and the Beautiful will re-introduce Maya Avant into one of its existing plots. And, it may be a while before the CBS sudser draws on its reserve of recurring actors given the new safety concerns. So, does that mean Maya’s gone for good?
Will Maya Come Back to Bold and the Beautiful?
Currently, if you want to see Karla Mosley, look for her new movie, From the Heart, which released in Canada in 2020 and should have a US streaming release soon. No doubt, she’ll have other projects once Hollywood returns to work.
But for Bold and the Beautiful, there’s no confirmed return for Maya Avant. It’s not a good sign that her character split from Rick Forrester after Jacob Young was cut entirely from the soap cast. Still, Maya’s got many fans who’d like to see her on the show.
It’s likely Maya Avant’s another Bold and the Beautiful character we only see at weddings and other special family events. We’ll keep you updated on who to watch for when B&B goes back to work – and when to expect new episodes.
