In June 2017, CBS renewed The Young and the Restless TV show for three seasons but the soap opera’s sister show, The Bold and the Beautiful, wasn’t as lucky. It was presumed that the latter series would be renewed for the 2018-19 season but, these days, it’s tough one can’t assume that soap operas are safe.
Today, CBS confirmed that The Bold and the Beautiful has been renewed for season 32 for the 2018-19 broadcast season. According to the network, the new season debuts on Monday, September 17th.
The network also announced that season 46 of The Young and the Restless will debut will debut on Monday, September 3rd.
