Young and the Restless spoilers indicate they hope to film next week and if so, when will new episodes air? Here’s the latest on the action behind the scenes at the CBS soap. Right now, the Y&R studios remain dark, but the lights could come on after the July 4th holiday.
There’s a change and update on filming – scroll to the end to see the latest date.
When is Young and the Restless Back to Work?
Y&R actors are getting their COVD tests in preparation to head back to work. However, we’re also heading into a holiday weekend, so it didn’t make sense to resume before then. As of now, it’s a July 6 filming target date. But will it happen?
Young and the Restless may shoot then, or they could push further back into July. But, since sister soap Bold and the Beautiful continues filming, it’s a good sign. Of course, Y&R remains silent on official channels on its return to work.
Perhaps they don’t want to excite Young and the Restless fans with false hope if it turns out their plans to film don’t play out as they wish. For now, we’re optimistic based on everything we’ve heard from our source behind the scenes at CBS daytime.
Who’s Back First in Y&R New Episodes?
Our source told us three characters we should expect to see back first on Young and the Restless. One is Adam Newman (Mark Grossman). Another is his brother Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) — and the last is Sharon Newman (Sharon Case).
We’ve heard Young and the Restless finally tapes scenes where Adam learns Sharon has cancer. Those scenes are long overdue, according to most fans. No doubt, Nick doesn’t want Adam involved with their mutual ex. Instead, Nick wants Adam to go away.
Another concern with resuming filming at Young and the Restless is delaying critical groups of actors. Don’t expect children on set anytime soon. Official guidelines told shows to limit kids over social distance concerns. Another is certain older actors, among them Eric Braeden as Victor Newman.
When Will New Young and the Restless Episodes Air?
Assuming Y&R gets back to work July 6, as we’ve heard, when could fresh episodes air on CBS? A good benchmark is to look at B&B. In a recent interview, showrunner Bradley Bell hinted it could be late Summer before new Bold episodes air – August or September.
That’s after they began shooting in mid-June. So, if Young and the Restless starts back by early to mid-July, then it could be a month later before Y&R hits the airwaves. That points to September or October for the second CBS soap.
And one last question is whether CBS daytime will hold B&B new episodes until Young and the Restless is ready and resume airing new episodes of both shows at the same time. We’ll keep you updated here as new info leaks out about when Y&R airs again.
UPDATE: Due to some changing situations in California, Y&R postponed their start date and now, they’re shooting for the week of July 13. Stay tuned for more info.
