“The Young and the Restless” will return next week with new episodes filmed during the pandemic, CBS announced Monday.
The soap will begin airing fresh installments Aug. 10 (12:30 p.m. ET/11:30 a.m. PT), which “will find Victor and Nikki’s family threatened by a secret, Billy and Lily navigating their new partnership with a shocking scandal brewing, Phyllis and Abby’s rivalry heating up, and Sharon’s family rallying around her during her brave battle with cancer.”
Following months of production shutdowns due to the pandemic, “The Young and the Restless” is the final daytime soap on broadcast to announce its return with new episodes after filming resumed, as CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful” and ABC’s “General Hospital” have both already broken out of reruns, and NBC’s “Days of Our Lives” never ran out of originals during its hiatus.
