A holiday weekend always has soap fans double checking to see if their favorite shows are actually going to be on. Well, we’re here to let you know exactly what to expect on Memorial Day this year. Unfortunately for GENERAL HOSPITAL fans, ABC will not be airing a new episode on Monday, May 27. Instead, they will be airing an encore presentation of the April 2 episode celebrating the long-running soap’s 56th anniversary. So if you missed that episode featuring longtime GH vets reminiscing about the good old days as they fulfilled the terms of Gail’s will, or if you just want to watch it again, you’re in luck!
Thankfully, for fans of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL and THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, CBS Daytime will be airing brand new episodes of both of them in their regular time slot on Memorial Day. However, DAYS OF OUR LIVES will not be seen on Memorial Day due to NBC airing coverage of the 2019 French Open. Semifinal matches will also be held on Thursday, June 6, and Friday, June 7, so DAYS will also be preempted on those days. (Which will likely mean a big WEDNESDAY cliffhanger on June 5!)
Naturally, as with every holiday weekend, the drama will get back to normal for all the soaps on Tuesday, May 28. So make sure you take the time to enjoy the unofficial start of summer vacation with your own loved ones before coming back for more fictional fun on Tuesday!
