The series has been on air since 1987, premiering as a sister show to The Young and The Restless. After over two decades, The Bold and the Beautiful is midway through its 36th season but sadly, there will be no more episodes until 2023.

The series took a break to cover the January 6 hearings in June 2022, during the NCAA tournament known as March Madness and the Thanksgiving holidays.
According to Soaps.com, the new season of The Bold and The Beautiful will not air until 2023 as CBS will be covering the Sun Bowl, the college football championships.
Audiences will be treated to an older episode of The Bold and The Beautiful on Friday, December 30, when they will be able to re-watch the highly anticipated reunion between Steffy Forrester (played by Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and John “Finn” Finnegan (Tanner Novlan) in Monte Carlo, where they exchanged a passionate kiss.
For months, Steffy had presumed her husband to be dead but, thankfully, everybody’s prayers were answered in the summer of 2022 and Finn was found to be alive.

The duo are hellbent on sabotaging Steffy and Finn. Steffy is determined to turn Sheila in to the police but if she does, Bill has plans to tell the police that Taylor (Krista Allen) shot him.
The Bold and the Beautiful will return on Monday, January 2 at 6.30 p.m. ET on CBS.
