The Young and the Restless production restart pushed by another week to July 13 amid spike in COVID-19 cases

The syndicated soap opera The Young And the Restless had been eyeing a July 6 return to production, but now that has been pushed by a week.

The new tentative production start date is now July 13, though that may be pushed again as COVID-19 cases continue to spike in California, according to Deadline. 

The news comes hours after California governor Gavin Newsom ordered bars, indoor dining rooms and movie theaters to shut down again.

The Young and the Restless and other iconic soap operas like The Bold and the Beautiful and General Hospital shut down production in mid-March, along with most other film and television productions.

All three of the programs ran out of episodes to air at the end of April, as all of the shows started airing repeats that became ‘theme weeks.’ 

The Bold and the Beautiful became the first soap opera, and first television show of any kind, to resume production last month, but even they ran into a snag.

Filming started on June 17, with series creator/executive producer Brett Bell telling The Hollywood Reporter they were abiding by all production guidelines to keep cast and crew members safe, including have some of the actor’s real partners serving as love scene doubles.

Shooting did resume on June 17, but it only lasted for one day, with production shutting down the rest of the week to focus on increased testing.

After switching to a new testing lab, following a slew of false positive tests, production did ultimately begin on June 24, with no interruptions thus far.

As for General Hospital, that show is currently eyeing a production start in mid-July, though that could change as well. 

The news comes just days after The Young and the Restless won Outstanding Drama Series at the Daytime Emmy Awards on Friday.

The show is currently in its 47th season, and it was renewed for four more years by CBS, taking it through the year 2024.

The Young and the Restless has followed the rivalry between two disparate families, originally the wealthy Brooks family and the working class Foster family.

The show has changed the names of the families several times, though the one constant is the rivalry between Jill Abbott (Jess Walton) and Katherine Chancellor (Jeanne Cooper)

It is said to be the longest rivalry on any American soap opera.
