Is Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong Coming To The Young and the Restless?

Looks like daytime dramas may have found its next celebrity superfan, or aspiring soap actor.  The lead singer of the iconic rock/alternative band Green Day, Billie Joe Armstrong, has posted three different times on his Instagram account – one a video and two photos – that indicate that he may be coming to Genoa City and The Young and the Restless, or perhaps, already taped a guest appearance … or is lobbying to do so?

A few days ago, Armstrong shared a clip from a scene featuring Kyle (Michael Mealor) and Summer (Hunter King) while watching it from a TV.  As fans watch the clip, Armstrong’s voice plays over it saying: “I want to be on a soap opera so bad.”

Then, yesterday, Billie Joe has a pic of the iconic Y&R logo from the soundstages of the series at CBS Television City in Hollywood, and if you look even a bit further back on his IG, there is a photo remake with him in the classic DAYS’ Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes (Doug and Julie Williams) cover of TIME Magazine!

Y&R’s Camryn Grimes (Mariah Copeland) responded to the video post and related to Armstrong: “This is my show. I am on it please come back and visit for the love of God *deep inhaling but not in a creepy way*.

So, could it be that Armstrong got one of his dream gigs as an actor on Y&R? Check out all his IG posts below.  Then, weigh in via the comment section below.

      Right, Momo? Those airplane scenes? What drivel. Bring on Billie Joe Armstrong. Oh, and please dump nuChance and Theo and Amanda’s ex. NOW!

        The airplane scenes are ridiculous.

        Has Ripley left? I thought he would be gone longer. Not liking the actor playing Chance.

    Would love to see a REAL musician on the show. Billie Joe is an amazing talent. Besides the brilliance of Green Day, he made that achingly beautiful Everly Brothers tribute album with Norah Jones, FOREVERLY. He’s got real sex appeal…beautiful eyes, great hair, and an intelligence and sensitivity one doesn’t always associate with rock stars. Stunt casting? WHO cares? It beats the roster of losers we’ve had lately. Theo, nuChance, Amanda’s men, Tanner, Tessa, Mariah’s new bartender friend…need I go on?

B&B’s Supervising Producer, Casey Kasprzyk Shares: “Just Finished Viewing Our First Produced Episode Since Starting Production Back Up!”

In a tweet late on Thursday, the supervising producer of The Bold and the Beautiful, Casey Kasprzyk, shared his enthusiasm at completing the first major hurdle for the soap going back into production during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Showing a viewing copy on disc of the first new episode produced for B&B in months, Casey said: “Just finished viewing our first produced episode since starting production back up! So proud of Team Bold & Beautiful. Great shows airing soon”

The disc had airshow number #8321 on it, and a question mark as to when it will make it to air.

The fact that The Bold and the Beautiful is the first daytime drama to get one new episode completed is a step forward amidst the spike in COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County and the state of California.

Now soap fans will have to wait and see if General Hospital and The Young and the Restless begin their productions in the middle of July; as last projected by both series, or if there will be further delays due to the ongoing crisis for the safety of everyone involved at the shows.

So, excited to learn Casey’s news that there is a new episode of B&B on the horizon for viewers to see? Comment below.

‘Strahan, Sara and Keke’ Canceled by ABC; Show Aired In Timeslot That Once Housed ‘All My Children’

No matter a network tries to do, replacing All My Children, which ran for 41 years on ABC has remained as everyone that follows the world of daytime drama knows, problematic.  Now come word via Page Six that Strahan, Sara and Keke has been canceled.

The show hosted by Michael Strahan, Sara Haines and Keke Palmer if you recall, replaced the foodie show, The Chew which ran for seven seasons and was the first show to air in the timeslot that belonged for over four decades to All My Children. 

Back in March of this year, Strahan, Sara and Keke took a break to make way for ABC’s News  Pandemic: What You Need to Know, a daily coronavirus report anchored by Amy Robach, Dr. Jen Ashton and sometimes TJ Holmes.

However, because the show did well in that two-week experimental run it morphed into GMA 3: What You Need to Know.  The new version of the show also talked about hot topics in the current news cycle, as well.

ABC’s Catherine McKenzie began producing the “GMA3” show four months ago and the network officially announced her as Executive Producer of the program on Thursday.

While ABC has yet to officially announce Strahan, Sara and Keke is over, a spokesperson told Page Six: “We’re proud of our teams at ‘SSK’ and ‘GMA3’ and how quickly they transitioned to producing a daily show to give people the news and information they need during an unprecedented pandemic, and conversations continue about how the show will evolve in the months ahead.”

It appears that Strahan, Sara and Keke won’t be returning; the future as many of their staff have transitioned over to ‘GMA 3’ with producers from ABC News Live, (the streaming division), helmed by McKenzie.

As for the futures of Strahan, Haines and Palmer; Strahan will continues to host Good Morning America, and they are all actively under contract with the network.

So, what do you think of  ‘Strahan, Sara and Kek’e being replaced by ‘GMA 3: What You  Need to Know’?  How long do you think that show will last in the timeslot once taken up by residents of Pine Valley? Comment below.

The Young and the Restless Pushes Back Production Restart Date Due To COVID-19 Spike

As the coronavirus pandemic is spiking again in LA County and California, CBS’ Daytime-Emmy winning The Young and the Restless has now postponed their previously announced goal of a production restart of July 6th to now eyeing July 13th as their new start date.  Deadline first broke the news.

But all of this could change, given that California Governor Gavin Newsom and LA County health officials have come forward that the spike of COVID-19 cases, test positivity and hospitalization rates in California have given the Governor serious concerns, so much so that now he is tightening restrictions again for the state to include: once again shutting down indoor dining, closing all bars, indoor movie theatres, as well as all beaches being closed for the 4th of July holiday.

Just last Friday, Y&R picked up the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series at the 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards. 

General Hospital is still eyeing a mid-July production restart, The Bold and the Beautiful had gone back into production and Days of our Lives still has episodes banked into the fall, and at this time have not yet announced plans to restart production.

So, do you think Y&R can safely go back into production in a few weeks given the COVID-19 uptick in new cases? Comment below,
