Young and Restless Opening Credits

The Young and the Restless Reveals 'Glamorous' New Opening Credits

“Nadia’s Theme” remains forever intact, but the new opening credits for CBS’ The Young and the Restless will feature a splash more of color when they debut later this week.

The long-running sudser shared on Monday a sneak peek of one of several iterations of the credits, which will feature assorted combinations of actors.

“Join us on Valentine’s Day as we unveil a glamorous update to our iconic opening titles featuring the fantastic Y&R cast,” executive producer Mal Young said in a statement on the show’s Facebook page. “We’re excited to debut this fresh update to the titles that honors our rich history on CBS Daytime and carries us into the future as we approach our 44th anniversary and continue celebrating 28 years as the No. 1 daytime drama. Enjoy!”

Y&R‘s current opening credits feature what my unschooled ears will call a “similar” arrangement of the “Nadia’s Theme” that we and our mommas grew up with, but are largely a stylistic black-and-white. Here you get a pop more of color, with similar “dual images” of each cast member (starting here with Eric Braeden aka The Mustache, because he did help finance the Waldorf Astoria and all).

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Totally like the new opening credits of Y&R. This is going to be better than the last one.

      I think theyll eventually go back to an updated version the classic all white zoom in and off to the side technique from the old days. This is nice, but i agree, they should have a different outfit in the second picture

    My gosh, I’m not a Y&R fan but I do remember when Eric Braden went as Hans Gudegast and played Captain Dietrich, the nemesis of Sgt. Troy and company on The Rat Patrol!!

    • Jake says:

      Exact thing I was going to post. I don’t watch soaps, but on the rare day that I’m home when this is on and come across the show, I’ll stop and watch a bit if old Hans is on screen.

    • Paul says:

      He was also Dr. Charles Forbin in the 1970 sci-fi film “Colossus: the Forbin Project”

    I love Young and the Restless also life is about change so I’m accepting the change😁#missing# Jeanne Cooper

  6. Andy says:

    It is interesting that the new credits still feature Michelle Stafford at the end. I thought the next time that they changed the credits that they would have removed her “mystery woman” likeness.

  7. Marilyn Kennedy says:

    Glad they updated it but didn’t change it so much that we wouldn’t recognize it.
    Bravo

  11. Fox says:

    So far the men get big splotches of black paint behind them, but the women are paired with things like diamonds, candles, objets d’art, roses, and champagne.
