The Bold and The Beautiful Debuts New Opening Title Sequence Throwback To 80’s! EP Brad Bell Says, "It’s Really A Treat For All Those People Who Stayed With Us From The Beginning."

Thursday, on the 30th anniversary airdate of The Bold and the Beautiful, the show surprised its enduring fans, viewers around the world, and the press by premiering its brand new opening title sequence featuring all of the latest cast members.

The look and feel of it should look mighty familiar to longtime B&B watchers, because it is a re-imagined version of the original 1987 opening sequence shot in the same style!

During the series on set celebration,executive producer and head writer, Bradley Bell told On-Air On-Soaps on the decision to do a throwback opening:  “When you hit 30 years, you think about the history of the show, and it’s really a treat for all of those people who stayed with us since the beginning, and who remember it.  And, it’s fun for us to relive those years.  They were great years. I think it’s a fun opening, and the 80’s are coming back!  You see it in fashion and style.  We are right on the cutting edge by bringing the opening from 1987 back. Hopefully, people will like it.  All the cast members are in.  It is completely shot by the same photography team from San Francisco who did the original, David Pfile.”

Watch the new opening title sequence for The Bold and the Beautiful after the jump!  Let us know if you love the 80’s throwback updated version in the comment section below!

This is very good. The show should have stuck with the original intro the entire time. The “fashion show” opening was not bad but I’m partial to the original approach.

It is a great opening and I really like it. Also the music reminds me of the Dallas theme song

I was hoping that they would go back to the original opening for their 30th anniversary! I remember as a teen in 1987 I started watching the show because I liked to catch the opening credits. I think the original opening is the best one they have ever had and one of the best soap opening credits of any other soap ever!! Happy 30th Anniversay Bold and the Beautiful!

This proves that different is not always better. Great opening, tweaked for now. Hopefully it is here to stay.

I think Katjerine Kelly Lang’s shot in front of the mirror is an homage to Susan Flannery’s original shot which looks very similar!

Vicki
Guest
Vicki

I agree. I think that blue dress she wore in 1 shot looked like the one Susan wore. I loved that she and John got all the prominent shots. They are the originals and the true legacy of the show.

It is, however, the dress is not blue; it is green.

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Guest
Scott (ATWT Fan)

If you look at side-by-side comparisons, it’s a complete re-shoot of the original credits, with multiple shots being a mirror of the original.

Thanks for clarifying the color. Goes so fast it’s got a bluish hue…lol

I loved seeing it. Was wondering if it was just for that ep or going forward. Did notice that now the actor’s names are not listed. But it was a great surprise and I loved it.

Mo

Charlie, Saul, Darlita, and the Avant parents (can’t remember their names-probably because they haven’t been on in forever) are not in it.

That’s because they’re recurring cast members while everyone else is contract.

I guess I am old school. I liked the opening where showed actors names and characters. It certainly helped me when I first stated watching B&B But all in all it was nice update

Joey

I like the fact that all current cast members are shown and there are some beautiful pictures. The last opening was kind of sad, when cast members were still on it after they left. No one really looked happy either

The Bold and the Beautiful has always been careful when updating its original credits. Growing up, I find the original theme scary and haunting. I loved the 2004 new, moving-glamour shot opening they had. And then, when they rebooted again in 2011, I was in-love with that, as well. But, now, in 2017, I see the practicality of bringing this opening back! It’s going to be easy for them to update when new/returning/exiting casting decisions happen, and again, it’s a great honor to the serial’s origins!

She’s not off the show; she’s on recurring status, and Brad even confirmed she’ll be seen again.

Linsey Godfrey is on recurring status with the soap.

Recurring means no opening credits. I know Brad said we will see her but she is no longer front burner that’s for sure

Print it. Keep It. Use it. Seeing this new open made me miss my old-school B&B. Today the show is all kinds of crazy but a little too much so for my tastes. I am glad it continues though considering the massacre of daytime drama in the last 20 years.

This new one is awesome, not as good as Y&R new opening, but it awesome!

Finally long overdue!

This new “old” opening music is too 1980’s. I think they could have used the most recent opening music with all the new photos.

There actually is a girl who has several shots in the opening. She is definitely not on the show. Is it Bell’s wife?

Who is the woman that appears in the opening credits? She isn’t an actress on the show. She is shown more times than some of the major Stars.

Jensen Ackles Shares Heartfelt Message on Death of ‘Rust’ DP Halyna Hutchins: “This Has Been a Tragedy of Epic Proportions”

Former Days of our Lives and Supernatural star, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric and Ex-Dean)  took to his Instagram over the weekend to pay tribute to cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins who was tragically killed in New Mexico, on the set of the film Rust in which Ackles co-starred with Alec Baldwin and Frances Fisher. Baldwin is also one of the producers of the film.

Last Thursday, in the initial investigation reports surfaced that Baldwin discharged a “prop gun” leading to the death of Hutchins and injuring director, Joel Souza.  Since that time it has been reported that Baldwin was told by the assistant director, David Halls, that the weapon was a “cold gun” meaning not loaded with live rounds following its preparation by the film set’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez.  But in his affidavit statement, Halls says he was unaware that the prop gun contained live rounds when it was given to Baldwin for his scene.

The scene Baldwin was rehearsing was inside a church building at the Bonanza Creek Ranch. In new affidavit’s, it was noted that Baldwin was ‘cross drawing’ the weapon and pointing the gun towards the camera lens.

A grief-stricken Ackles shared:  “I’m not even sure where to start.  This has been a tragedy of epic proportions that we are all still processing. Earlier last week I felt compelled to tell Halyna just how awesome I thought she was. I told her how incredible I thought her camera shots were and just how exciting it was to watch her and her team work. Truly. She laughed and said thank you and gave me a hug. I’ll forever be thankful we had that moment.  She had a spunk and passion that infected the entire crew from the top down. She was an inspiration. My heart and prayers go out to Halyna’s husband, son and the rest of her family. There just aren’t enough words to express what an immense loss this is. She will be incredibly missed by all of us who knew and admired her.”

Since Hutchins’ death, a video also surfaced of Ackles discussing his concerns for gun safety on the set of Rust at a Supernatural convention in Colorado prior to the tragedy.

Jensen told the crowd: “I’ve got a 6 a.m. call tomorrow to have a big shoot-out. They had me pick my gun. They were like, ‘Alright, what gun would you like?’ and I was like, ‘I don’t know?’ and the armorer was like, ‘Do you have gun experience?’ I was like, ‘A little.’ And she’s like, ‘OK, well, this is how you load it, this is how we check it and make sure it’s safe. “So she’s like, ‘OK, I’m gonna put some blanks in there and I want you to just go and fire off a couple rounds towards the hill.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ So I put the belt on, I put the gun there, and I walked out and she’s like, ‘Just make sure that you know, you pull the hammer all the way back and you aim at your target.’ And I was like, ‘OK, I got it.’  The footage was originally on You Tube, but now has been taken down.

The investigation remains and open and active on what occurred on the set of Rust, according to the Santa Fe New Mexico Sheriff’s office.

So, what do you think about Jensen’s tribute in the wake of the Rust tragedy? Comment below.
