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,

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.

It’s all a game of politics, I wouldn’t put it pass government that this revenge to be mend an back to normalcy. until the presidential election is over, and depending on the favors out come.. 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.
