Plus belle la vie: when will the series end?
France Télévisions will stop broadcasting its series next November, on screen since the first episode was broadcast on France 3 on August 30, 2004. “This pioneering and emblematic soap opera has become the longest daily French series in history and a strong brand of France 3”greeted the group, referring to a program “transgenerational, rooted in proximity, authenticity and the realities of French society in all its diversity”.
