The first 14 episodes are available for streaming now, followed by 14 additional episodes slated to be released later this fall. In addition, look for a new beginning to The Bay’s story on Amazon Prime.
Former General Hospital EP Wendy Riche, who has joined The Bay team as Executive Consultant and is now an executive producer, told On-Air On-Soaps about the series streaming on Amazon Prime: “It’s a great way for people who have seen The Bay for people to see it again and refresh their memories, and it’s a wonderful way to introduce it to new people. ”
While you can binge The Bay and see all the action and the characters again, a new season will be coming viewers way soon. EP and creator, Gregori Martin related, “We have a new writing team (Ex-GH’s Karen Harris, EX-DAYS. Anne Schoettle, EX-ATWT Julie Poll) which I am really excited about, and a new acting coach, and this all came from Wendy Riche. We have a new music score, too. Wendy is bringing the magic of GH to The Bay.” Riche added, “There is a lot of magic at The Bay that people will want to be involved in. I am glad to be there. I love Gregori, and the cast.”
Ronn Moss (Ex-Ridge B&B, and John, The Bay) was enthusiastic about The Bay’s future and the addition of Riche to the team and upcoming season: “Wendy is bringing such a different dimension to the stuff we have been doing and we are changing that. You are going to find out all the different layers of my character, and it gives me the opportunity to do something I have never done before. You know my history, and you know Wendy’s history. We have a lot more freedom, and expression and ability to build these shows. When you see us after the next season has aired, you will go, ‘Whoa!’”
