“GZSZ”: Is Jo Gerner threatening to leave?

One question has been bothering fans of “GZSZ” for years: is Jo Gerner threatening to leave? Wolfgang Bahro, who plays the character of Jo Gerner, is one of the show’s most famous actors. As a character from the very beginning, the intriguing businessman and lawyer is one of the most striking characters in the series. Since the character was introduced to the show in 1993, she has had several relationships and romances and has been down the aisle three times.

Fans wonder how long Jo Gerner will stay in “GZSZ”. In one of the episodes Jo was buried alive – the possible death of Jo Gerners caused a stir among the fans of “GZSZ”. Is Jo Gerner dying on the show? Maybe at a later date, but for Jo Gerner a serial death is not yet planned. The departure of one of the most popular and hated characters is not currently planned. Regardless of how the “GZSZ” continues, Jo Gerner remains on board for the time being.

The success story of German daily soap

“Gute Zeiten, Schlechte Zeiten” is known for solving common problems that teenagers and young adults face in everyday life. The action of the series takes place in Berlin and tells about the life of the Gerner clan and the Flemming, Moreno, Bachmann, Seefeld and Lehmann families. “GZSZ” is considered the most successful German program in its genre, and in 2010 it received the German Television Award in the category “Best Daily Program”. Which maybe not every fan is aware of: the series, which inspires millions of viewers every day, was an adaptation of the soap opera “Restless Years”, at least in the first 230 episodes, which was broadcast in Australia from 1977-1981. It was only from episode 231 that scripts written especially for German television were created.

A concept that seems to work because the daily soap “Goede tijden, slechte tijden” has also been operating in the Netherlands since 1990, also based on the Australian model. And “GZSZ” is now also seen in France and Belgium: from July 2018, a German series called “Au Rhythme de la Vie” (in English: In the rhythm of life) is shown there. However, the decision was made not to start with the first episode and make up the last 26 years, but to start directly from the episode 6063.

RTL broadcasts special programs from “Gute Zeiten, Schlechte Zeiten” at irregular intervals. For example, on the occasion of the 25th anniversary in May 2017, a 1.5-hour special was shown, and in the summer of 2018, a full-length episode of Majorca appeared.

Upload & Actors: Stars from the cast of “GZSZ”

Not only the series itself is an export hit with an incomparable success story. For many famous actors and actresses, “GZSZ” was not only the first career station, but above all a stepping stone in their career. Oliver Petszokat, Jeanette Biedermann, Rhea Harder, Yvonne Catterfeld and many other former cast members were largely unknown before appearing on “GZSZ”. A chance for young acting talent without much experience.

Some musicians also use the series to increase their awareness – for example the bands Caught in the Act and Just Friends. In addition, the series has always featured guest musicians and celebrities. The guest performance of Gerhard Schröder, the then Prime Minister of Lower Saxony, even secured a record audience of 6.73 million viewers.
