We look forward to seeing what new creative twists and turns they have planned for the folks of Genoa City.”

Additionally, Peter Bergman will reach 35 years of playing Jack Abbott while Joshua Morrow, Sharon Case and Michelle Stafford all celebrate 30 years of being on the show.

Hailing from Bell Dramatic Serial Company in association with Sony Pictures Television, “The Young and the Restless” is executive produced by Josh Griffith, who also serves as the head writer.

Adam Sharp, the president and CEO of National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences congratulated the series on the renewal, saying “Y&R and the Daytime Emmys celebrated golden anniversaries together in 2023, and it is so gratifying to see the continued passion for daytime television stay so strong. We look forward to celebrating with the Y&R team again at the 51st Annual Daytime Emmys later this year.”
