Canceled Soap Operas to Return
Were you one of those people who mourned the end of an era when ‘All My Children’ and ‘One Life to Live’ got the boot last year?
Like one of many soap opera characters that somehow come back to life (Daisy? Kendall? Greenlee?), these two legendary shows are back!
The Online Network announced that the shows will make their internet debut on April 29, with new 30 minute episodes airing everyday on Hulu and iTunes.
Erika Slezak, Robin Strasser, Julia Barr and David Canary are some of the veteran actors returning to the shows, though as I understand it, Susan Lucci isn’t returning, and that just gets a big ol’ thumbs down from me!
Agnes Nixon, the shows’ creator, will stay on-board as a creative consultant.
It’s not the same as watching the shows on TV, but it’s something, right?
