Just to make sure The Young and the Restless lives up to the first part of its name, the iconic CBS soap opera has undergone a bit of a facelift.
Daytime's number one soap opera revealed a sneak peek of its brand-new opening title sequence on the series' Facebook page today along with the announcement that the new credits will begin airing on television starting Tuesday, February 14.
A publicist for the show confirms there are several versions of the credits, each featuring different stars from the show.
“Join us on Valentine's Day as we unveil a glamorous update to our iconic opening titles featuring the fantastic Y&R cast,” said Mal Young, Y&R's executive producer. “We're excited to debut this fresh update to the titles that honors our rich history on CBS Daytime and carries us into the future as we approach our 44th anniversary and continue celebrating 28 years as the number one daytime drama. Enjoy!"
The video has only been up a short time, but fans have wasted no time weighing in on the updated title credits. Some are absolutely thrilled that the soap gave its opening titles a fresh, glitzy look. Others wish the soap would spend money on writers and actors rather than “fluff.” On what side of the scale would you cast your vote?
