The Bold and the Beautiful showrunner Brad Bell is moving forward with efforts to refocuse the 30-minute series on its younger set. However, that doesn't mean the Hope/Liam/Steffy triangle will remain front and center. In a pair of revealing chats with TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan and Soap Opera Digest's Devin Owens, Bell talks in depth about what the future of B&B will look like.
Said Bell in the Sept. 3-9 issue of TV Guide regarding Rick Forrester's (Jacob Young) upcoming power grab:
"Rick is a young man sick of sitting on the sidelines who will finally come into his own," says Bell, "He'll become a passionate, sexy, driving force of the show, making a strategic play for Caroline [Linsey Godfrey] and going after Ridge's position as head of Forrester Creations. The guy is going to be on fire, very much like Ridge was in his youth." READ MORE
Rick (Jacob Young) has wanted Caroline (Linsey Godfrey) since the moment he laid eyes on her, but Thomas (Adam Gregory) got in the way. With Hope (Kimberly Matula) and Liam's (Scott Clifton) relationship on the rocks, Rick sees an opportunity to get Caroline for himself.
Has Rick already forgotten about Thomas blowing up his car a few years back? Brooke's (Katherine Kelly Lang) son better invest in a bomb-sniffing dog before trying to steal his step-nephew's girl. Watch this week’s The Bold and the Beautiful promo after the jump! READ MORE
