The series has been airing on CBS for over 47 years and will continue on through the 2023-24 broadcast season.
“Having the #1 show for any length of time in any daypart is a tremendous accomplishment,” said Kelly Kahl, president of CBS Entertainment. “But ‘The Young and the Restless’ has been daytime’s top drama for over three decades.

Bell and Lee Philip Bell 47 years ago continue to captivate audiences in the U.S. and across the globe, and we look forward to building on the dynamic storylines featuring these beloved characters.”
