The Bold and the Beautiful is one of the longest-running soap operas in CBS. It may be restarting its production soon after shutting down earlier this year due to the pandemic.
According to reports, The Bold and the Beautiful stars and crew may soon jump back to filming new episodes.
The daytime soap opera is one of the many Hollywood shows that had to close in response to stopping the COVID-19 spread.
But as of now, nothing is confirmed yet. It’s just that it’s already been two months since the production shutdown. It started on March 17 and since then CBS has been airing repeat episodes.
The heads of the show are simply looking into what they can do to return to work while maintaining social distancing.
The new memo
As per the source, The Bold and the Beautiful production company is currently planning to resume filming sometime in June.
They have, reportedly, sent a new memo to the soap’s cast and crew and it contains information regarding the planned return to production. It’s been noted though that June is just a projected start date.
It’s clearly not an easy feat as the pandemic situation remains fluid, making it hard for them to come up with a definite decision.
People all over the world are practicing the new normal now. This could mean that production will also no longer be the same.
Right now the production team is waiting for the official safety protocols endorsed by the Hollywood unions.
They are also waiting to hear from CBS Television City as well as the city of Los Angeles and the state of California for an official statement on what must be done for any filming plans moving forward.
