CBS has extended The Young and the Restless‘ daytime reign, announcing an order for four more seasons. Per the network, the series has ranked as the most-watched daytime drama for the past 31 years. With the just-announced renewal, it will have the opportunity to carry on as a ratings leader through at least the 2023-2024 season.
“Having the #1 show for any length of time in any daypart is a tremendous accomplishment,” stated Kelly Kahl, President, CBS Entertainment. “But The Young and the Restless has been daytime’s top drama for over three decades.

It’s a remarkable achievement and a testament to the extraordinary cast, gifted writers, talented producers and supremely passionate fans, as well as our tremendous partnership with Sony Pictures Television.”
The current season is drawing an average of 4.11 million viewers.
