Rumors have it that the stay at home order has been extended which means our soaps may not resume production until much later than predicted. This now affects the soaps in so many ways as the airing of new materials may be pushed back to allow some time for the resumption of duties.
In fact, the shows have already come up with a solution to stretch out the airing of new episodes. So far, The Bold and the Beautiful, General Hospital and The Young and the Restless are airing encore episodes each Friday which means we a have a four-day (new episode) soap week unlike in the past. Currently, with their far ahead shooting schedule, Days of Our Lives is the only soap airing new episodes on Fridays.
