CBS announced today that The Young and the Restless has been picked up for an additional four years, taking the long-running soap through to at least Season 55 in 2027-2028.

"The Young and the Restless has been a staple of daytime television for over 50 years, and it is with great pleasure that we will continue that legacy at CBS," said Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment. "The talented cast and writers deliver compelling performances and stories on a daily basis and have provided iconic moments that have kept the show on top of the ratings and thrilled generations of fans for over five decades. We look forward to seeing what new creative twists and turns they have planned for the folks of Genoa City."

Daytime television's top drama for more than 35 years, the series is averaging 3.5 million viewers this season. It celebrated its 50th anniversary last March.
