As The Bold and the Beautiful celebrates its 35th anniversary on Wednesday, March 23, CBS has renewed the soap for two additional years – through 2024.
“35 years ago, I would have never imagined what was in store, said Bradley P. Bell, executive producer and head writer. Since our premiere in 1987, it’s been a fantastic journey and incredible experience for all of us. We would not be here if not for the invaluable support of CBS and our millions of fans around the globe for their loyalty and support.”
In Canada, The Bold and the Beautiful is simulcast on CTV2 and streams on CTV.ca and the CTV app. The previous week’s episodes are also added to the Crave streaming platform each week.
