The excitement builds as stars of the CBS soap slowly begin returning to work.

It was Don Diamont, who plays dastardly Bill Spencer, who first confirmed on his Instagram feed that Bold and Beautiful returned to production on June 15. The CBS soap did pause production a few times in order to, according to Variety, “better accommodate the large volume of testing needed.” Things ramped back up again and they were able to film scenes with success on June 23. We learned that Jacqueline MacInnes Woods had returned to set as Steffy Forrester.

After months of being in quarantine, Jennifer Gareis happily informed her followers that she too was back on set as Donna Logan.

“My feeling right now after my first day back @boldandbeautifulcbs! After waiting patiently for many months in #quarantine I am so happy we are back in #production! Thanks @annwillmott #edscott #bradbell @caseykas @markpinciotti #cynthiapopp & everyone else who made this happen!
