General Hospital resumed production this week, leaving Days of Our Lives as the only daytime drama not currently in production. (The Bold and the Beautiful started airing new episodes again on Monday, while The Young and the Restless has yet to announce when it will do so.) Days begins filming again in September, but it has not had to turn to reruns because it had enough original episodes in the can to last through October.

ABC has also released loglines for the first week of new episodes:

Monday, August 3: Nelle is shaken. Jax is impressed with Nina’s strength. Ned and Olivia clash. Valentin meets with Brook Lynn. Portia has an uncomfortable encounter.
