On the heels of the network’s three year renewal of The Young and the Restless, Deadline reports that The Bold and the Beautiful will soon be renewed for two more seasons. That will take the soap through the 2012-13 season.
Created by William J. Bell and Lee Phillip Bell, Bold and the Beautiful began in 1987 and has been on the air for nearly 6,000 episodes. It’s one of the top-rated soaps, typically ranking a distant second behind Young and the Restless. B&B is currently the only half-hour soap opera on network television.
What do you think? Are you glad to hear B&B will be around for a couple more years at least? Why do you think it gets better ratings than most other soaps?
