The Young And The Restless (Y&R) has been renewed for the next four years, through the 2023-2024 season, which will mark the show’s 50th season on the air. The show has been the number one daytime drama on North American television for the past 31 years.
“Having the #1 show for any length of time in any daypart is a tremendous accomplishment,” President Of CBS Entertainment Kelly Kahl said. “But The Young And The Restless has been daytime’s top drama for over three decades.
“The last time any other show was on top, Ronald Reagan was president and the Berlin Wall was still standing. It’s a testament to the extraordinary cast, gifted writers, talented producers and supremely passionate fans as well as our tremendous partnership with Sony Pictures Television.”
Steve Kent, the Senior Executive Vice President at Sony, also weighed in with his thoughts on the show’s four-year renewal.
“The iconic characters created by William J. Bell and Lee Philip Bell 47 years ago continue to captivate audiences in the U.S. and across the globe, and we look forward to building on the dynamic storylines featuring these beloved characters.”
The Y&R has recently celebrated the anniversaries of some of its high-profile actors. Melody Thomas Scott, who plays Nikki Newman, celebrated her 40th-anniversary last year. Peter Bergman, who portrays Jack Abbott, celebrated his 30th-anniversary last year as well. And this February, Eric Braeden, who plays Victor Newman, will celebrate his 40th anniversary on the sudser.
