The Bold and the Beautiful should be back to work soon – and we’ve got a projected start date for new filming. So, we could see new B&B episodes by late July, if they hustle editing. Here’s the latest news from two sources confirming the gates are open for the CBS soap to get back to work.
Update from California Governor on TV Production – When Can Bold and the Beautiful Restart?
The first bit of news comes from the CA Governor Gavin Newsom. We already reported the guidelines B&B must meet to get back to work. These came from a 22-page report created by the Hollywood studios working with the unions for actors and crew members.
Now, the Governor reviewed the plan and greenlit it. He said TV shows and films could resume on the twelfth of June, at the earliest. That means, potentially, Bold and the Beautiful could be back to work in a week. However, we’ve heard that they won’t restart on the earliest date. What’s the hold-up?
One issue is that the shows must each have a COVID-19 compliance officer. That’s a new job no one’s done before, so that can be a roadblock.
