“Thirty-five years ago, I would have never imagined what was in store. Since our premiere in 1987, it’s been a fantastic journey and incredible experience for all of us. We would not be here if not for the invaluable support of CBS and our millions of fans around the globe for their loyalty and support.”
The show’s planning a special episode for its 35th anniversary
The Bold and the Beautiful will celebrate its 35th anniversary later this month, and Bell has a special episode planned. According to TVLine, Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) will receive her standalone episode. Brooke is a prominent character and has been with the show since its debut.
Details of the upcoming episode have Brooke talking about a trip down memory lane as she examines her love life. Of course, Brooke’s destiny Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye), will appear. Her other ex-husbands, Eric Forrester (John McCook) and Bill Spencer (Don Diamont), will be included. But there are a few surprises in store too.
Characters returning for the anniversary episode
It’s been an eventful day for The Bold and the Beautiful fans. Aside from the show’s renewal, viewers were also ecstatic to learn a few characters will be returning for the anniversary episode. Jack Wagner will reprise his role as Nick Marone, while Winsor Harmon will return as Thorne Forrester.
Both men were married to Brooke, and it’ll be interesting to see them sharing scenes with her again.
