Set in Genoa City, Wisconsin, The Young And The Restless involves the saga between two wealthy families (the Newmans and the Abbotts) in the cosmetics industry. Head of the Newman clan is Victor Newman, the arrogant, cavorting billionaire and his wife Nikki; and Jack Abbott is the Patriarch of the Abbott family.
CBS announced today that The Young and the Restless has been picked up for an additional four years, taking the long-running soap through to at least 2024.
Daytime television's top drama for more than 30 years, the series leads all other direct competitors in viewers, with over 4 million, and in key women's demographics as well. Today's pickup will also take the show to its 50th anniversary in 2023.
