I wish they’d renew for 2 years at a time. Why can’t they do that?

This is great news. Days is awesome. Better than Y&R.

At least DOOL has the best-looking men on daytime… Casey Moss, Chandler Massey, Freddie Smith, Robert Scott Wilson, Eric Martsolf, Galen Gering, Matthew Ashford, Brock Kelly. And many great veterans also. Let’s hope they all stick around.

Hi Soaphound,
Just read that Casey/J.J will be leaving show during Feb sweeps.Maybe he was getting sick of the lunatic S.Ls as a lot of us are.

Y&R was just renewed for 4 years. Why can’t NBC renew Days for 2 years at least?

Fire the head writer–reduce a lot of characters that aren’t shown for weeks at a time. Try shifting focus to have Bradys/Johnsons take the lead for awhile, bring back either Joey or Stephanie and see how it goes. Marlena/John, Nicole/Eric, etc aren’t driving ratings being front and center. Let’s shake it up.

can they please do something about the historical inaccuracies and redundant dialogue??? If I hear “justin’s beloved wife” “you deserted her/me” “dear poor adrienne’s death” one more time (just a few) one more time I will throw my tv through the window. Then the worst was Kristen telling Nicole something to the effect she hoped she doesn’t have to go through what she has..hey, dumb ass writers Nicole lost two children..so over this..then you have dreams, flashbacks, new pairings that are meh, more return from the dead in another form then themselves, etc. RIDICULOUS

General Hospital Shifts Production Restart Date

On Friday, ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital has now determined to push back their production restart date given the escalating number of cases of the coronavirus as the pandemic has worsened in Los Angles County.

General Hospital was previously eyeing a return to production this coming Monday on July 13th, before the COVID-19 outbreak saw a spike in numbers.

While GH is pushing itself back another week, The Young and the Restless is at this moment preparing to start taping new episodes beginning on Tuesday, July 14th.

B&B is already back in production and Days of our Lives is now targeting a September 1st restart.

So, glad that GH is holding off a little bit longer to ensure safety first for all involved from cast, and crew? Comment below.

The New Men of B&B Revealed

The Bold and the Beautiful has been the first soap back in production since COVID-19, and now comes exciting casting news that will surely bring some new energy and drama to the CBS Daytime drama series.

First, the series has decided to recast the role of Zende Forrester Dominquez last played by Daytime Emmy-winner Rome Flynn (2015-2017).   Now Delon de Metz will be taking on the role of adopted son of Kristen Forrester and Tony Dominguez.

And in addition, potentially part of the mystery we alluded to earlier in the week as to just who may be the new man in Steffy Forrester’s  (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) life, may have been answered with the casting of Tanner Novlan in the role of Dr. John ‘Finn’ Finnegan.

Novlan is married to former ‘Bold and Beautiful’ star Kayla Ewell (Ex-Caitlin Ramirez) and has been recently seen in the Liberty Mutual commercials where he plays an actor trying to say the lines of dialog required of him but keeps messing it up.   He was also recently seen in 2019 on the CW’s Roswell, New Mexico series.

TV Line broke the casting news.

So, what are your thoughts of a new Zende and a new doctor coming to The Bold and the Beautiful? Comment below.
