“THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS”

CELEBRATES ASTONISHING RECORD TODAY – 12,000 EPISODES!

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, the #1 daytime drama for 31 consecutive years, revolutionized the daytime drama genre when it premiered on March 26, 1973. The series continues to set the standard with strong characters, socially conscious storylines and epic romances. On the 12,000th episode, viewers will be treated to flashbacks that recall some of the show’s classic love stories, including the story of iconic super couple Victor and Nikki Newman.

According to Melody Thomas Scott, who has played “Nikki Newman” since 1979, “It is an honor and privilege to be part of the enduring legacy that is THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS. It is no surprise that the world of Genoa City, created by the genius of Bill and Lee Phillip Bell, in 1973, still captures the hearts and souls of millions around the globe. As we celebrate the milestone of 12,000 shows, we also look ahead to reaching many more landmark accolades with humility, anticipation and joy”
