It's About Time! Y&R Finally Getting New Opening Title Sequence!

After years … and years … and years of watching the same opening title sequence and its slight variations with different on contract cast members, the number one daytime drama, The Young and the Restless is finally putting the finishing touches on their new opening title sequence.  But the question is, who will be featured in it?  Will there be  different configurations show throughout the week?

Y&R’s Daniel Goddard(Cane) took to Twitter the other day to let his fans and followers know that he was going in to shoot his shots for the title sequence when he tweeted,   Y&R is redoing its opening title sequence! And tomorrow I film my part!”

So soapers, although we have some of the skinny on who we know has been filmed for it, let us know who you absolutely think must be included, or you will be very upset!  And, if you were to put on your creative soap hats, how would you style the new 2012 version of  the Y&R opening title sequence ?

I do know for sure that Michael Muhney will be in it as he also tweeted about it. He is saying that it will debut in about 6-8 weeks (his words, not mine).

Yeah. He wanted it to be a surprise for us fans, though. 🙁

That is great to hear, but they also might strongly consider updating some of the sets…Victors ranch living room and Jacks living room are just downright gaudy..fake flowers and all….just SAYIN….

Could not agree with you more on that one Chris!

I agree about Victor and Jack’s homes. They look like they’re stuck in a time warp,especially Victor’s living room.

OMG! I think the same thing to myself everytime I see those two rooms, but especially Victor’s house. I think it’s worse than Jacks. It looks like cheap, dated trailer trash, not like an extremely rich man lives there.

I’d rather see Y&R spend money to update those rooms than to change the opening sequence.

They can make it more elegant like Katherine’s

If I had my way, we’d have a new take on Nadia’s Theme (like the famous Red opening), but I know this won’t happen. All contract players would be in, either on a rotating basis, or mega-fast like B&B and GH. Actor & character names would appear. It would be cut so it can be updated in real time with cast changes. I preferred the stylishness of the Red opening, but I could tolerate a return to the 90s version—posed moving images against a white background. The one problem with limiting to contract players is that my Gloria and Lauren… Read more »

Michael Muhney also tweeted that there will also be original music featured in the new Y&R opening credits as well! Does that mean that they are getting rid of “Nadia’s Theme”?, because I LOVE that theme music, and it would be such a total travesty if they got rid of it, because “Nadia’s Theme” is such a integral part of Y&R’s legacy since it’s the theme music that’s the most recognizable part of the show!

Oh, I agree, Chris! When I watch it via Tivo, I actually rewind it just so I can hear Nadia’s theme. That would be a mistake to get rid of that or mess it up like they did years ago.

Day’s opening will always stay out of respect for the late great MacDonald Carey! It would not ever be the same without his great voice you know back in the time when SOAPS WERE GREAT!!!!

Yes, if only Days could really get back to the storytelling of yesteryear.

Jeanne Cooper and Jess Walton need to be in it.

I would love it if they did the portrait drawings like the original sequences had.

Oh, and Melody Thomas Scott. She must be in it as well.

Let’s hope they include Jeanne Cooper and Jess Walton , because Y&R seems to have forgotten all about Jill and Katherine Chancellor and all the viewers that have followed them for almost four decades now.

We see either Jill or Katherine, even though they live together and share a family, they rarely shown together on-screen and they haven’t had a story in years. Has it been 3 years?

If Jess Walton is not included then my suspicions will be confirmed! Jess Walton still turns in power performances every time she is given something to do I miss her and Jeanne Cooper doing scenes I could care less seeing Debi Morgan or Genie Francis take up her air time.

I don’t think any characters should be prominently shown. I think it should just look like one big, long flashback without focusing on anyone.

Hopefully it is THE original music, and not NEW original music. Cotton’s Theme will and should be forever associated with Y&R. I don’t understand why not keep the same opening but update the characters, like the producers planned to when they originally debuted the opening. It was under LML and MAB that the opening became stale and repetitive. I am looking forward to the new opening, but I’ve learned not to expect much from MAB.

I know he hasn’t been on the show for years and years, but I would love it if Stephen Nichols was in it. I’ve been a fan for a very long time. 🙂

I’m very much looking forward to it! They’ve always had such amazing opening sequences; I can only imagine that the newest one will be bigger, faster, stronger – but still upholding that which is right in the universe: i.e. dramatic close ups of our favorites, sweeping and iconic music and a production value that would rival night time serials. Nothing but the best for the jewel in the daytime crown at CBS!

Im glad for the update but the original theme must stay. Wouldn’t be Y&R without the theme song.

They need to keep the original Nadia’s theme – even if they tweak the tempo a bit.
As for the opening sequence…the grande dame herself Jeanne Cooper,followed by Eric,Melody,Peter,Eileen,etc.
All long time players at the top….
I must say I like BB opening sequence.

Could we also get new writers new actors! Gosh this show is awful and it is so sad I sit down and watched last week and was cringing most of them are phoning in their lines. And send Debi Morgan, Genie Francis etc packing they just do not fit . Eleven years later a new opening wow!

Leisha

If the new credits mirror the new show we won’t be seeing much of the longtime Y&R cast in it. I feel sorry in advance for all the Y&R actors and loyal fans of the show who are being displaced by the new ones. The credits have been the only place we’ve been able to get a glimpse of them for the last couple years.

I honestly could care less about the opening!! I’m more concerned about the show itself, which needs an update, so to speak!! New head writers that will restore Y&R to its former glory instead of the garbage the head writers call a soap!! You know a show is in trouble if the only good thing about it is the opening!

All I can say is THANK YOU!! The cast is huge and I am sure they won’t be able to feature everyone. Regarding DOOL, I dom’t think we will see an opening change for them. There main focus right now is probably keeping the show on the air.

Kim Delaney’s Lifetime Movie ‘Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’ Drops Trailer

Coming up as part of Lifetime’s Ripped from the Headlines true crime series of movies, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, is now slated to premiere next month on February 20th at 8 pm ET.

General Hospital’s Kim Delaney (Jackie Templeton) stars in the film, executive produced by Deborah Norville. in which she portrays, Mari Gilbert, a mother who becomes alarmed when her daughter Shannan (Katharine Isabelle) is MIA and doesn’t return home. Knowing her daughter sometimes works as an escort, Mari fears the worst.

As those who know the true life story, Mari’s attempt to find her daughter and the subsequent investigation leads to a chilling discovery – the bodies of several other missing women.

In the real life story, the remains of the women were uncovered accidentally as police searched for Shannan, who went missing after visiting a client, whom she met on Craigslist, in the gated community of Oak Beach on Long Island, and then fleeing the man’s home.   However, police believe that Mari’s unwavering fight to find her daughter which led to finding the other women is not how Shannan ultimately disappeared.

While the case has yet to be solved the film shares, “Though the search for the serial killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon.”

PEOPLE exclusively dropped the trailer over the weekend.  Make sure to check it out.

Once the trailer was released, Delaney shared on her Twitter account: “Amazing director @StanleyMBrooks Thank you so much, Stan!Very special producers, cast and crew. An important story!”

Mark Consuelos on the All My Children Primetime Reboot: “I Know They’re Going to Bring Back Some Fan Favorites”

On Friday, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) was a guest on the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, where he shared his excitement and some insight into the upcoming All My Children primetime reboot, Pine Valley, in development at ABC..

As previously reported, Mark and his wife Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) are two of the executive producers on the project.

Consuelos shared on the reboot:All My Children was such a big part of my life and my wife’s life. And you know, I met my wife there obviously, had kids, became a young man on that show, and we got the opportunity to reboot the primetime version and the idea was brought to us, and we’re so excited.  Of all the things that we’ve ever announced that we’re going to do, this is one of the biggest responses we’ve got from our fans. They’re so excited.  It’s a big piece of TV that’s been missing for such a long time, and we’re going to bring it back.”

When avid soap fan and The Talk co-host, Sheryl Underwood, posed a major question to Consuelos that has been on longtime All My Children fans minds, she got a solid response from him.

Sheryl was trying to get some tea on who might appear in the reboot, when she asked, “Is it going to be the Cortlandts and the Warners? Is it going to be everybody?” Consuelos then responded with: “I know they’re going to bring back some fan favorites, and it will take place in Pine Valley, and I’m really, really excited.”

You can watch a portion of Mark’s virtual visit on The Talk below.

Then let us know, which AMC characters do you want to see back and on the primetime series, Pine Valley?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Lexi Ainsworth Teases Her Return to General Hospital

With her father Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) presumed dead (although viewers know he is very much alive with amnesia), it looks like Kristina is on her way back to Port Charles – which would be a welcome return to the role for Daytime Emmy winner Lexi Ainsworth.

Rumors began circulating on Inauguration day Wednesday, when Ainsworth shared a pic on her Instagram Story of her watching the ceremonies from a dressing room at Prospect Studios in Los Angeles, where GH is taped.

Later, after reports had surfaced on social media that Ainsworth might be returning to her signature role, the actress shared some of those on her Instagram Story as well, which was seen as her way of confirming she is back on the show.

Lexi has been recurring on General Hospital for the last several years, so there is no telling how long she will be on-screen this time.

While there has been no official confirmation from GH, chances are that if there is a funeral ahead for Sonny, Kristina of course would be there to mourn her father. Stay tuned.

So, excited that Lexi will be back on-air on GH? Comment below.
