Young and the Restless is back very soon and the date leaked on when they film again – and we’ve also heard who films first. If Y&R is back to work the day we heard, then we could see new episodes on-air (maybe) by the end of July.
Which Young and the Restless Actors Return First?
Y&R’s setting up a return to filming with strict protocols for COVID testing, and social distancing. However, with the trouble over on B&B where they shot one day and then shut down, there are still lessons to learn. The concern on that set was the volume of testing needed.
Since Young and the Restless is a much bigger show, in scope, they’ll have to scale even more to test everyone. We’ll bring you updates on that, but we know that the CBS sudser’s already testing actors and they have three lined up to return to shoot first scenes.
Watch for Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) to be one of the first back on Young and the Restless. Also, Sharon Newman‘s (Sharon Case) due back soon. And we’ve heard there are Sharon-Adam scenes where he learns about her cancer. Plus, Nick Newman‘s (Joshua Morrow) returning soon.
What Date Will Y&R Start Filming New Episodes?
Our inside source at CBS production said Young and the Restless would get back to work, June 22. However, that leak came to us a couple of days before B&B started then stopped. So, this date may shift based on what happened at its sister soap. But, we’re hoping they stick to Monday.
As for Bold, they plan to restart again next week as well. Already, cast and crew of Young and the Restless are prepping to return to work. That means initial coronavirus screening and getting familiar with the safety protocols. There are also changes afoot at Y&R, we’ve heard.
One thing is finally, the big Young and the Restless scene with Adam finally spending time with Sharon after learning she’s got cancer. Another one is Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) romancing Amanda Sinclair (Mishael Morgan).
Young and the Restless – No Love Scenes What Will They Do
Another big question as Y&R gets back to work next week is how will they handle romance. The other CBS daytime soap, B&B, is planning to use actors’ spouses and partners to sub in as body doubles for love scenes. They also said they’d use blow-up dolls and other oddities.
Will Young and the Restless do the same? They’re also planning to use crafty camera angles to make actors look closer together so they can maintain some social distance. However, they’ll also ease restriction as time goes on and the COVID concerns lessen. For now, though, it’ll be strange.
We’ll keep bringing you updates for Young and the Restless as we get new info. For now, look for Adam, Nick, and Sharon in the first scenes. And, the latest leak says they’re back to work on June 22, unless something changes. Stay tuned and fingers crossed.
