In an unusual yet exciting move, CBS has announced the season premiere dates for The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless.

Soap operas are on every day, year-round, and therefore don't have seasons the way primetime series typically do. But CBS Daytime is changing the game with its latest announcement.

In a new statement, Angelica McDaniel, Executive Vice President, Daytime Programs and Syndicated Program Development, CBS Entertainment and CBS Television Distribution, has shared the 2018 season premiere dates for The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless.

"CBS Daytime continues to deliver award-winning, fan favorite programming that has led the industry for more than 31 years. The lineup offers an unmatched blend of heart and humor in our talk and game shows and stunning storytelling in our daytime dramas, connecting our audience with compelling programming throughout the year," she says in the statement.

B&B will begin its 32nd season on Monday, September 17. The soap, which is the most-watched dramatic serial in the world, will be commemorating its 8,000th episode during this season.

Y&R, which later this year could mark its 30th consecutive year as the top-rated daytime drama, will premiere its 46th season on Monday, September 3.

The announcement of season premieres is new for soap viewers, and it's a welcome change -- as long as the drama continues throughout the year without any season finales!
