When will soaps run out of new episodes to air. Find out here--->>>
It's the first time in years that daytime soap operas could run out of new episodes to air. The sands in the hourglass will keep on running for Days of Our Lives as they have a large number of episodes already in their vault. The show tapes eight months in advance which allows them to have about seven months left of new material to air if production should not resume by then.
But, what about the other soap operas? They are in trouble when it comes to new episodes airing. The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and General Hospital came up with the idea of airing classic episodes on Fridays to stretch out new episodes but it looks like as the halt in production continues, the three shows will run out of new episodes to air.
According to soap production insiders, the completed episodes could run out as soon as mid to late May. There may be some backup plans but please stay tuned for updates.
