Plot Synopsis

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL is a half-hour daytime drama set in Los Angeles that tells the story of high fashion glamour, honor, romance, passion, and most importantly, family. On Friday, January 23, 2015 at 1:30pm ET/12:30pm PT, CBS premiered the 7000th episode of this series. This special milestone episode broke format and featured a retrospective documentary that showcases the most iconic moments and the history of the show's creation, commentary from the cast, fashion throughout the decades, unforgettable guest stars, original screen-test footage, and more.
The series celebrates its 35th anniversary on Wednesday, March 23, 2022 at 1:30pm ET/12:30pm PT on CBS. "For 35 years, THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL has been a cornerstone of our #1 daytime lineup," said Margot Wain, senior vice president, daytime programs, CBS Entertainment. "Congratulations to our talented cast and crew, as well as Bradley Bell, who have made this show a creative and ratings success, and thank you to B&B's dedicated fans, whose passion for these characters and stories is unrivaled." "35 years ago, I would have never imagined what was in store," said Bradley P. Bell, executive producer and head writer of THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL. "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."

The following day on Thursday, March 24 at 1:30pm ET/12:30pm PT, CBS will air a special standalone B&B episode dedicated to Brooke Logan and five of her true loves. Fan favorites and former cast members Jack Wagner, who played Nick Marone from 2003 to 2012, and Winsor Harmon, who played Thorne Forrester from 1996 to 2016, return for this can't-miss episode. John McCook, Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) and Thorsten Kaye (Ridge Forrester) are also featured.

CBS announced on Wednesday, March 2, 2022 that THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL was renewed for two more years, through the 2023-2024 broadcast season.
