The Young and the Restless Celebrates 11,000 Episodes and 43 Years on Air!
The Young and the Restless has been daytime's No. 1 drama since 1989
The Young and the Restless has already been on the air for more than 43 years, but the daytime drama isn’t slowing down any time soon!
On Sept. 1, the CBS series set in a fictional Wisconsin town will celebrate its 11,0000th episode, and there’s plenty of drama leading up to the milestone moment.
Gina Tognoni’s character Phyllis’ life spirals out of control when her secret affair with her brother in law is discovered, while Summer’s (Hunter King) family pulls out all the stops to get Luca (Miles Gaston Villanueva) out of her life once and for all.
Both Michael Graziadei (Daniel Romalotti) and Tristan Rogers (Colin Atkinson) will return for episodes leading up to the 11,000th, and viewers can also watch a special scene on July 25 with the late Jeanne Cooper, who played series matriarch Katherine Chancellor.
Despite being daytime’s No. 1 drama for the last 27 straight, there are still plenty of twisted plot lines to come from the cast.
