The Bold and the Beautiful is going to be the show with an exciting milestone in 2017, as the number one series around the world turns 30 years old!  There is much planned for the celebration, but an exciting development revealed today has that B&B, who is soap-famous for their exquisite location shoots around the globe, is headed back to Australia for a very special series of episodes.  It’s all due in part to a partnership with Quantas, Australia’s national air carrier, who announced the news.

B&B will go down under next month February 12-17 to tape multi-episodes. Series executive producer and head writer, Bradley Bell said in a statement, “This will be an epic celebration for our fans around the world. We are preparing to film the most glamorous location shoot in soap opera history. Collaborating with Qantas, Network TEN and CBS, viewers will witness romance, high style, jaw-dropping twists, harrowing stunts and major cliffhangers, all hallmarks of ‘Bold and Beautiful'”.

Cast members who will be part of the Aussie shoot will be: Scott Clifton (Liam), Don Diamont (Bill), Thorsten Kaye (Ridge), Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke), John McCook (Eric), Rena Sofer (Quinn),  Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy), and Australian’s own Ashleigh Brewer (Ivy),

The last time The Bold and the Beautiful visited Australia to tape some remote episodes was back in 2007, when the show turned 20!

So, what do you think will happen that will bring the characters to Australia? What will be the backdrop of the glamorous location shoot teased by Bell? Comment below!

Those trips have money backing . Airline, travel agency, plaements etc etc..
CBS has good advertising partners and scratching of palms..
good for them they know how to work it..

Su…I agree. Better than just product placement in scenes. And my goodness, couldn’t GH/ABC work a travel arrangement through Disney Travel. They go lots of places.

Hey Rose…it would seem ABC doesn’t have the budget for these trips which is the same reason I think they’re hiring younger actors instead of using vets which command higher salaries. Until/if the GH ratings go up which translates to more advertising dollars, they’re pretty much grounded in Port Charles…

Maybe it could come out of the Disney advertising/promo budget. Disney Vacations still has to market themselves, their cruises and international destinations. For instance if they play up Cassadine Island again, it could be nice to see some beaches, and other reasons Greece makes for a good destination. One can hope.

Filming beautiful scenes in lush locations has never been a problem for B&B. It’s always been story. I hope that they will use this opportunity to move these 8 characters (Quinn, Eric, Brooke, Bill, Ridge, Steffy, Ivy and Liam) in new directions because the show is same old, same old, and based on Nielsen ratings, people aren’t liking what they’re seeing. I’m hoping Bill and Brooke get married, Quinn and Eric stay married, and Ridge is out in the cold. Ivy is shown so rarely, I hope she has more to do than to try to break up Liam and… Read more »

Sounds like fun, and certainly a great break for the same old, tired story sets…and this applies to all soaps. Too bad they aren’t bringing Wyatt for Ivy.

I like Wyatt and Ivy too but didn’t she also have a thing for Liam? Wyatt is so good-looking and charming, he shouldn’t be the lesser brother who always gets his brother’s “rejects.” (And by that I don’t mean any of these girls are rejects…they’re all stunning and worthy…but rejects in the sense rejected by Liam.)

On a side note…we have to wait sooooo long for both Poldark and Outlanders. These season breaks are ridiculous.

I cant wait to see what the show has to bring. I’ve been watching B&B for many years and I’ve always been intrigued by what it has to offer. Now my 4 yr old granddaughter watches it and has been into it for a year. Keep up the good work.

As I read the names of the cast going to Australia, I happily noticed that Wyatt was missing. Yay! Dislike that character. Insipid, whiny and needy.

While you’re waiting, there is at least a coloring book for Outlanders. :)))

Wow…I didn’t know about the coloring book. I actually might get it! Funny, now it’s the “trendy” thing..for adults to color. But before the trend I have actually bought kids coloring books a few times, got myself some crayons…glass of red wine…put on some nice music. Very fun, relaxing…cathartic.

Drawing Jamie/Sam’s face would, however, add an extra spark to my crayon!

I am closerthanthis to dropping B&B I find the story lines repetitive. And location shots are nice but find B&B uses more time airing scenic shots

I’m looking forward to it. For those complaining about the same old story lines, they must be doing something right with the current ratings here and internationally. I tend to agree however about those same tired story lines, wash, rinse and repeat.

I hope that Ivy gets back her accent. It was ridiculous to make her lose it in the first place. It’s part of her charm.

Australia again?!! There are other beautiful countries that could offer great backdrops that the show hasn’t been to. I suggest Canada; Montreal, Quebec City, Vancouver, the Maritimes.. come on up, B&B!

Ummm— correct me if I am wrong but aren’t those characters pretty the whole cast right now- oh sure there are other characters but how often are they on screen? Poor Australians they will never know the joy of one of Pam’s lemon bars- LOL

Mary SF…It would be nice if B&B did an on-line, mini-cookbook with Pam’s recipes. It’s not totally unheard of when a popular character likes to cook. Patricia Cornwell did a real cookbook based on Dr. Kay Scarpetta from her popular series, who would unwind from her high pressure job by going home and cooking. You would get hungry just reading those parts of the book…just like Pam’s lemon bars. There are other authors who have done the same, they just don’t come to mind right now.

Ivy suggests Liam and Steffy get married in Australia. I can’t believe BandB is going to continue to add to viewer fatigue with these two characters. It’s ridiculous. So sick of steffy Every. Single. Day.

I really hope that this will be a STEAM wedding location. Those of us who love them have waited FOREVER for this moment. I can’t wait. In any even, thanks Bell for the STEAM scenes of late. I agree with what Steffy said to Liam….”Nothing boring about us…never will be.” To that end, this location and the drama should be great. I’m also loving the blooming connection with Quinn and Ridge.

As long as it just stays a connection…but we know it won’t, or a nosy neighbor could stir the pot.

Can’t wait. I really hope that this will be a BRILL wedding location, an epic Brill reunion to celebrate the 30th anniversary would be perfect!!!Brooke needs to dump Ridge and his cheating ass soon and run back to Bill. Brill are number 1 in cbs soaps indepth mag .it is the 5th week. It is a huge accomplishment and Brill fans need to be rewarded for their loyalty and devotion.

According to Deadline: Helgenberger will play Sen. Charlotte Pierce. As a senior Democratic senator from New York, Charlotte is used to calling the shots. She’s happy to see her son, Jack (played by Matt Long), settle down with his bride, Grace (Jasmine Mathew), but there are darker forces at play she has yet to fully understand. Charlotte will soon have to choose between her family and the political career for which she’s worked so hard.  Bonilla will play Rafi Salinas. Rafi claims to be a fisherman on the run with his friends from a gang of cartel members, but he’s hiding a dark secret that will put everyone at the resort in danger.
