The Young and the Restless is nearly ready for its return. New episodes of the daytime soap opera will begin to air next week on CBS.
Production on the series had been shut down due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the network ran out of original episodes in April, opting to air “classic episodes” in their place. Taking precautions, members of the cast and crew were able to return to work on new episodes of Young and the Restless in July.
CBS revealed more about the return of the series in a press release.
