Both The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful have been airing classic episodes since April 27, when the shows ran out of new, pre-COVID-19-filmed episodes. In order to keep things exciting for the viewers, Y&R and B&B announced that they would be presenting the throwback episodes via theme weeks filled with long-lost cherished characters, epic adventures, and classic moments. At this time, it's unclear when soap operas will resume production and bring new material to viewers, but they've been given the all-clear and could start filming again this week.
Y&R's first theme week kicked off on Monday, April 27, and was dedicated to iconic Genoa City matriarch Katherine Chancellor (played by the late Jeanne Cooper). Its second theme week kicked off on Monday, May 4, and featured Victor and Nikki's love story. Y&R's third week of themed episodes began on May 11 and centered on the show's infamous grudges and rivalries. Its fourth week, which began on May 18, focused on the iconic Winters family. Its fifth week began on May 25 and featured some of the show's best villains, while its sixth week, which started on June 1, was dedicated to the Abbott family. Its seventh week, which began on Monday, June 8, was dedicated to romantic moments.
