Get ready for big hair, big hats, and big drama. YouTube will soon be streaming the entire first season of CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful, and fans can watch all the action from 1987 for free!
B&B's official YouTube channel will begin offering one episode a day from the soap's freshman year, starting on Wednesday, September 1, at 9AM ET. This will allow fans to watch the complete first season in the same fashion that it was originally released 34 years ago (one episode each day), or in any order they want once the complete season is uploaded.
As longtime B&B fans know, the first year of the CBS soap opera featured Ronn Moss in the role of Ridge Forrester, Susan Flannery as Stephanie Forrester, and Clayton Norcross as Thorne Forrester, as well as current cast members Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke Logan) and John McCook (Eric Forrester). And that's just a fraction of the excitement the first year of B&B provided.
B&B's YouTube page has more than 200,000 subscribers and has already been uploading past episodes of the soap for some time. Many episodes from season 23 are currently available, as is the entire library of episodes from season 30. The channel also has other fun content, like behind-the-scenes clips that are released each Wednesday, and a live show called Bold Live, in which B&B supervising producer Casey Kasprzyk chats with cast members from the show.
