On September 7, 2011, the series switched to high definition, making it the second-to-last American soap to make the switch, at the time.

Originally from a middle-class background, her love affair with Ridge sets up much of the story-line, beginning in the first year.
Every so often, Ridge and Brooke reunite only to break up due to various circumstances, and Ridge invariably finds comfort (in most cases, this would lead to marriage) with another love of his life Dr. In addition, the rivalry between Ridge's mother Stephanie and Brooke plays a key role in the drama.
She enters a coma and it is implied that her family pulls the plug off-camera.
Thousands of women see the pictures of Ridge and speculate on the identity of the woman who has won the heart of the man who has, until recently, been a playboy, and who has refused to settle for one woman.
One of the curious is a chemistry student named Brooke Logan, who comes from a working-class family and who lives with her single mother Beth, and her siblings Storm, Donna and Katie in a typical American home in the San Fernando Valley in the city of Los Angeles.
At this time Ridge has already become a fashion designer and vice president of Forrester Creations.
Many media outlets throughout the world, from the big television networks to the most honorable newspapers, to the last gossip newspapers publicize their wedding, declaring it "the wedding of the year in the fashion world".
