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

Photo: JPI

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,

I’m glad and sad at the same time. Missing new Y&R adventures, but this COVID is still too dangerous for all involved in putting together new episodes. The way it’s spreading even July 13 seems too soon to restart production.

We won’t be back to normal. Yes I said the out come. No, I do not care who wins. Just get over the feud and division.

Unless Y n r returns with a real head writer its just all for nothing, especially if safety is still a concern. With josh griffiths non stories im perfectly fine watching y n r when it was at its finest in the 80s and 90s under creator and master of storytelling bill bell. Later with Kay Alden and John Smith carried the torch on. In comparison todays version is sad and pitiful . Its gotten soo off track from the slow suspenseful buildup of masterfully crafted storytelling of the original version. Josh ‘s version of y n r is best… Read more »

Damien you are 100% correct…Y&R is no more with Josh Griffith and one would think that CBS/Sony could see that and what a classic soap it was in the past…

This is NOT politics, this not a hoax–I know people who have died from COVID-19. This is a serious and devastating pandemic. I h ope you don’t think that wearing masks is an infringement upon your freedom, Karen, because it’s about keeping your fellow American safe.
That said, I am enjoying the old Y&R classics. Some of the episodes were before my time and some of them were pleasant reminders. Y&R was just better under Bill Bell; better music, better stories and better location shots.

Lindsay Hartley On Temporarily Replacing GH’s Kelly Monaco: “Some Big Shoes To Fill … Precious Too.”

When General Hospital returned to shooting new episodes amid the coronavirus pandemic, Sam McCall looked a bit different temporarily and that’s because the role was played for a bit by soap veteran Lindsay Korman-Hartley (Ex-Passions, All My Children, and Days of our Lives).

Hartley has been subbing for series star, Kelly Monaco (Sam) and according to Daytime Confidential is filling in only for a few weeks in the role,

Lindsay tweeted when the news broke: “Some big shoes to fill…precious too. I hope you enjoy watching Sam as much as I have enjoyed playing her, temporarily.”

In addition on Friday, Monaco’s mom, took to Twitter and informed a fan of Kelly’s the status of her daughter’s health which was good news that she will be back (as it looks as of now) on Monday to tape new episodes of GH,

Carmina Monaco shared:”Kelly is great and should be back on set Monday. 14 day quarantine after a breathing problem with mask 1st day back. 3 negative Covid test, I’d say she is better than great. Thank you for all of the love,”

GH fans are eagerly awaiting new episodes of the long-running ABC daytime drama series to begin airing, and they won’t have to wait much longer as this coming Monday, August 3rd, the story picks back up.

We look forward to Kelly’s return to the series in the role she made soap-famous, while Lindsay takes over to keep the character present in the storylines.
