The Bold and the Beautiful Projected To Resume Production In June; Although Situation Remains Fluid

Could The Bold and the Beautiful be the first daytime drama back in production following their halt due to the coronavirus pandemic which caused Hollywood TV filming shutdowns?

Deadline revealed that they are hearing that the producers of the series put out a memo to the cast and crew that the series is looking to resume production in June.

However Deadline noted: “Sources stressed that this is just a projected start date and, while the producers are making preparations, the situation remains fluid.”

In order to move filming again forward, official safety protocols endorsed by the Hollywood unions, as well as guidelines set by CBS Television City, the city of Los Angeles and the state of California need to be in place first.

This begs the overall question of what soap scenes in a global pandemic might look like given they may be required to maintain safety distance measures which could eliminate close contact by the actors in the cast and their characters.

The Bold and the Beautiful is a Bell-Phillip Television production with Bradley Bell as the executive producer.

The last original episode of B&B aired on April 23rd, since that time the series has aired theme week encore episodes.

So, hopeful B&B will jump start production in June? Weigh-in below!

If this goes on much longer it’s going to be hard to follow

You’re so right. But I must say I’m enjoying the classic episodes of Y&R. The Jack and Victor scenes are epic. I miss the old background music. Certain music was used with certain characters. It added so much to a scene.

MJ100, the old background music was the best ever and so missed.

How you produce a soap with social distancing and face masks?

Based on current LA County stay at home guidelines, tv production would fall into phase 4 or return. With the order going until at least mid-July, June production seems highly unlikely.

The first soap back may need to film outdoors. B&B and Y&R can likely afford some form of location shoot. GH can use Prospect Studios grounds that double as park sets.

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.

Kristian Alfonso Departs Days of our Lives After 37 Years

In a bombshell announcement, Days of our Lives enduring and ever-popular star, Kristian Alfonso (Hope Williams) has decided to make her exit from the NBC daytime drama series after more than 37 years in her role.

Kristian made her debut as a teenaged Hope Williams in 1983 and quickly rose to popularity and became soap-famous; along with her on-screen romance to Bo Brady then played by Peter Reckell. Together as one of soaps most all-time popular duos and separately, Alfonso has remained one of soap opera’s most notable performers.   There were only two times throughout her time in Salem, that Kristian took breaks from the show; during one of them she starred on CBS’s Falcon Crest.

According to Deadline who broke the news; in a statement to the outlet, Alfonso shared, “I feel blessed and honored to have been invited into people’s homes for over three decades. However, it is now time for me to write my next chapter.”

And it appears its already a wrap for Alfonso, who will not be returning to the series when the show is planned to return to production in the fall and come early September.

Kristian added:  “I will not be returning to Days when it resumes production in September.  I’ve already filmed my last episode several months ago.”

In a heartfelt post on her Instagram account, the actress gave special thanks to the late Betty Corday (mother of DAYS EP Ken Corday), and of course, her millions of fans who loved her as Hope throughout her time on the soap.  You can read it in full below.

REPORT: Days of our Lives Targets September Production Restart

Looks like Salem and Days of our Lives will be back in full-swing come September, if the target date holds true as revealed today by Deadline.

According to their sources, Corday Productions, who produces the long-running NBC daytime drama, sent out an email to cast members on Thursday notifying them of their intent to resume production come September 1st.

However for this article; reps for NBC, Corday and Sony Pictures TV declined to comment.

Days of our Lives has had enough shows banked through early October of this year, so was not pressed to get back into production amidst the coronavirus pandemic as much as CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful (which went back into production a week and half ago), and The Young and the Restless and General Hospital who are targeting a mid-July restart.

All three of the shows, except for DAYS ran out of original episodes to air, back at the end of April of this year.

So, excited to hear that their may be plans ahead come fall for DAYS to come to back and tape new episodes? Comment below.
