Young and the Restless fans want to know when Y&R starts filming new episodes. Now, we’ve got updates for you about the CBS soap on when they’ll get back to work. Plus, we’ve got some words from the cast about how ready they are to return.
When Will Young and the Restless Start Filming?
Most actors are chomping at the bit to get back to work and out of the house and that includes the cast at Y&R. Many of the cast shared their quarantine activities while they’re climbing the walls at home. Meanwhile, fans are enjoying the classic episodes, but hoping for new ones.
Young and the Restless spoilers and rumors say that CBS daytime might be back to work as early as June. However, the major obstacle now is the unions that represent crew and cast. The governor of California said he hoped to get people back to work, but unions are roadblocking.
Bold and the Beautiful producers were hoping for a mid-June start to filming. Then, Young and the Restless could be the second soap to resume taping new episodes. So, we’ll keep you updated on what the unions say as they’re the primary issue to getting Y&R actors and crew back to work.
When Will Y&R Resume Filming – Actors Ready to Work
We reported recently that Young and the Restless bigwig Eric Braeden was ready to return as Victor Newman, despite knowing it’s a risk. He talked about the need for safety and acknowledged that actors and also crew might need to sign a waiver of liability to return.
Another Young and the Restless actress eager to be back on set is Camryn Grimes, ready to play Mariah Copeland once again. Camryn said she’d “burst into tears” when she’s called to come back to work at Y&R. And the Mariah Copeland actress isn’t the only one.
Kevin Fisher actor Greg Rikaart’s ready for new Young and the Restless episodes too. You can see his message above where he teased fans. Rikaart said he hopes they’ll soon have “fantastic new shows” for viewers as soon as they can. So, it sounds like he’s ready to be working again soon.
Young and the Restless Fans Expect More from Writers
In addition to actors chiming in on getting back to filming for Y&R, fans shared their expectations for new episodes. Since the CBS soap’s been dark for weeks, that means the writers had plenty of time to retool the storylines and prepare excellent new scripts.
Some viewers spelled out what they expect when Young and the Restless returns. One said they won’t accept “any more excuses for Josh Griffith” and sloppy plots given all the time they’ve had to right the ship. Still others reminded us of when Josh let us down.
Several examples on Young and the Restless include Chelsea Newman (Melissa Claire Egan) abruptly dumping Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow). Then, they rushed back to “Chadam.” Another armchair critic said the “Skyle” reunion was just as clumsy. So, will they do better now?
For now, we’re seeing classic Young and the Restless episodes with lots of fan-favorites like Katherine Chancellor (Jeanne Cooper) and her waitress alter-ego. And seeing these older shows reminds fans how great Y&R can be when properly written. So, wait and see if things change.
