2023 Fall Preview
BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL
“This fall on THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL, the bedroom and the boardroom take center stage, resulting in surprise romances and a family divided,” says Co-Head Writer Michael Minnis.
Liam/Steffy/Finn: “Steffy is overseas with her children. Finn misses his wife and wants her back. Liam has made it clear that Finn’s inexplicable tie to Sheila is a threat to Steffy, Kelly and Hayes. Liam is determined to keep them safe. Finn is determined not to allow Liam to undermine his marriage, especially since Liam has openly admitted his love for Steffy. These two men both love the same woman. What will Steffy do when she returns?”
Eric/Ridge: “Determined not to be phased out of Forrester Creations, the world-renowned fashion house he built from scratch with his late wife, Stephanie, Eric stands up to Ridge and tells him he is designing one final couture line. Things get complicated when a misunderstanding between Eric, who demands his legacy be honored, and Ridge, who loves and admires his father but wants him to enjoy retirement, quickly spirals. Eric secretly utilizes his grandson, R.J., as his muse and confidant in creating his designs. However, as more people learn of their alliance, the more complicated the situation becomes, with R.J. in the middle. This will be a profoundly emotional story of family, generation versus generation, and long-standing relationships will change dramatically as everyone chooses a side.”
Hope/Thomas: “With Liam refusing to forgive her, Hope embarks on a steamy, romantic relationship with Thomas as they work side by side on her successful Hope For The Future fashion line. Thomas is in love, and while Hope makes it clear that she is not, we wonder if Hope’s feelings will grow and a true bond is made between her and Thomas. This fall, we’ll see Douglas’s impact on both of his parents. Only time will tell if these three will finally become a little family.”
Deacon/Sheila: “Bonded over their life situations, past and the fact that they can’t physically resist each other, Deacon and Sheila continue their relationship. Deacon feels that Sheila is delusional in believing that Finn loves and forgives her for shooting him and Steffy. Sheila remains determined to have a full mother/son relationship with Finn. Worried about losing his relationship with Hope, and his restaurant, Deacon and Sheila ponder ending their relationship. But can they? Or will they grow even closer? Devastated that Steffy’s last encounter with Sheila resulted in her taking the children to Europe, Finn throws himself into his work and attempts to reconcile his conflicted feelings about his birth mother, Sheila. The mother who raised him, Li, quickly gets involved. She lets Finn know he has to go to Europe and get his wife and family back, but not before eliminating the threat of Sheila Carter.”
