The Young and the Restless preview for next week’s episodes of the CBS soap opera tease it is all about summer fun in Genoa City.
The network is going back to the late 1990s to relive some of the best fun-in-the-sun moments. CBS continues to find creative ways to keep viewers watching while Y&R production is shut down.
Hopefully, the cast and crew will be back to work filming new episodes soon. A tentative production start date could mean the wait is almost over.
Until then, though, the classic episodes are an enjoyable trip down memory lane for viewers.
What is Summer Fun week?
Summer fun is filled with activities in Genoa City that celebrate family gatherings, backyard BBQs, and good old fashion carnivals.
Soap operas are notorious for going all out in the summer months. The teen scene heats up as do the beaches, pools, and smoldering hot romantic trysts.
Oh yes, summer sizzles in the world of daytime drama! There is always a reason to celebrate as the temperatures rise outside.
