Programming alerts for B&B, Days, GH and Y&R.

Summer is upon us, which means the Fourth of July holiday is right around the corner. Whether you enjoy celebrating with friends and family at BBQs, attending parades and fireworks displays or watching your favorite soap opera characters doing the same in daytime, Soaps.com has some Independence Day scheduling changes…

The Bold and the Beautiful will air a new episode as normal on CBS. Keep an eye on our Bold and the Beautiful spoilers to see which residents will be celebrating the holiday. There have been so many drama-filled pool parties at the Forrester mansion in the past, maybe they’ll throw another.

Days of our Lives will not be affected by the holiday and will air a new episode as well on NBC. Visit our Days of our Lives spoilers for what’s ahead in Salem. A romantic picnic in the park followed by fireworks would be fun.

General Hospital will not air a new episode on Wednesday July 4. In its place will be a repeat of the January 17, 2018 Ava-standalone episode, in which the character took a hard look at her past while undergoing surgery. For a refresher, read Soaps.com’s General Hospital recap: Ava is haunted by her sins during surgery.

The Young and the Restless will air a new episode on CBS. Last year fans were treated to pool parties and fireworks in Genoa City.

Have a safe holiday! For fun, readers can take a trip down memory lane to 2007 when a few soap stars shared their July 4th plans with Soaps.com.
