The CBS daytime drama The Young and the Restless will be celebrating its 40th anniversary on Tuesday, March 26, as the long-running favorite leads up to a “killer” wedding between super-couple Victor and Nikki (the couple’s fourth trip down the aisle over the course of the show). The day before the 40th anniversary episode, on Monday, March 25, CBS’ daytime show The Talk will host actors from the series to talk about the iconic soap opera.
On the March 25 episode of The Talk, The Young and the Restless cast members Peter Bergman (Jack Abbott), Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea Newman), Amelia Heinle (Victoria Newman Abbott), Joshua Morrow (Nicholas Newman), Michael Muhney (Adam Newman), Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki Newman), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis Summers) and Kristoff St. John (Neil Winters) will join The Talk co-hosts in-studio to discuss the legacy of The Young and the Restless. They will also look back on the most memorable show moments from The Young and the Restless, both on-camera and behind the scenes.
After the completion of the live show, the actors will participate in a web-exclusive 30-minute Q&A titled “Keep Talking: The Young and the Restless Cast” with the studio audience of The Talk, which will be made up largely of longtime fans of the soap. The Q&A session will be moderated by The Talk co-host Julie Chen, and it will be posted online later in the day. Visit TheTalk.com for more information.
