The show shut down production in mid-March as the United States locked down in an attempt to reduce the spread of COVID-19. After it ran out of new episodes, the CBS Daytime drama switched to theme weeks, replaying flashback stories to fit different themes, including the Newmans, Abbotts, weddings, villains, and more. This week's focus is on "Oh my God" moments, and there have been plenty of those over the years.
Fans were thrilled with the news, and many of them commented on the show's social media announcement about the upcoming, all-new episodes. Some also expressed that they'd like a refresher of what was happening before the break.
"Yay!! But I can't remember what was going on before! Please post a synopsis of some sort," suggested one viewer.
"I have enjoyed and will miss the classics, but I hope the writers made some improvements to the storylines and that the cast and crew stay safe. Looking forward to Monday!" a second fan enthused.
"This is such wonderful news! Not that I am complaining about the reruns, they were fun to watch, but I look forward to getting back to the present storylines," replied a third follower.
