All My Children has part of fan favorite couple ‘Zendall’ slated to appear on the upcoming Prospect Park revival of the series when heartthrob Thorsten Kaye signed on to reprise his role of Zach Slater.  However, one of the top hold-outs thus far has been his on-screen lady love played by Alicia Minshew (Kendall).   However, according to an update today exclusively at TV Line.com, Minshew related her status with the online reboot!

“I’m really excited for the fans to have their shows back,” said Minshew. “I am currently in discussions with Prospect Park to work out scheduling around other projects I have already committed to, We’re keeping the lines of communication open, and hopefully it can work out for me to join later on.”

Alicia has been one busy bee since AMC concluded on ABC, shooting two independent films with another one in which she will co-star up next titled …  Here And Now!

So soapers, can you be patient for the return of Kendall as played by Alicia Minshew?  Do you hope things can work out to accomadate her schedule? Let us know!

Rebecca Budig has gone onto the record stating that she has been asked, however, has some other projects she’s involved in at the moment, but is open to suggestions of how they could make it work for her to return.

I hope they do manage to get AM back on board at some point. But I hope they do it WITHOUT Rebecca Budig. Her and Kendall together were a toxic and unenjoyable friendship I could never believe in. And the bitter Valley Girl Greenlee has been a played out character for longer than I can remember.
I wish she and Cam Matt well – far, far away from Pine Valley.

I would be happy if it was just Erica and Miranda and Maybe Bianca on periodic visits. I think it would great for it skip a generation and Erica having to deal with her Teen Granddaughter, like the old Mona/Erica moments.

I am totally thrilled about AMC coming home to Pine Valley. I am hoping for as many cast members as they can get. I will be satisfied if the rest make in and out visits to Pine Valley. Keep their door open. Who knows, they may finish up the projects that they have started and then be able to move back to Pine Valley. Father Clarence has been with me on this long journey. He tells me it is all going to work out. My trust is in his hands. He whispered this to me the first day AMC went… Read more »

I would be very happy for a new actress to take over the role of Kendall. I would rather have the original Bianca back . I will be happy to just get something going that I can watch. I can wait for actors to join in later.

I could personally live with Alicia Minshew as Kendall. I say re-cast the character or try and bring Sarah Michelle Gellar back to the fold. Moving AMC back to the east coast is what’s driving the show to not get its core actors/actresses back. A lot of them located back to Los Angeles for the series, and that’s why it worked. You’ve got to get people invested in re-locating their whole lives again to make it work. My only hope is that Christina Bennett Lind (Bianca), Sarah Glendening (Marissa), Rebecca Budig (Greenlee) and Natalie Hall (Colby) sign on for the… Read more »

Never cared for the role of Bianca or the story line.

I’m hopeful that Alicia Minshew can return as soon as possible because (a) she’s the definitive Kendall, a character that I love, and (b) she and Thorsten Kaye’s Zach have dynamite chemistry together. Greenlee (RB) would be a welcome addition too, but somehow I’ve always preferred Kendall. Kendall’s the daughter of Erica Kane, the daughter most like Erica, and a mighty Kane Woman. But what about Bianca—shouldn’t she be back too, for the same reason? Both of Erica’s daughters need to be on the scene for the reboot!

My dream would be to have Kendall, Greenlee, Erica, Bianca, Zach, Erica and Jack back. No, truth is my dream would be to have all of AMC characters back; they never should have been cancelled. I still refuse to watch ABC Daytime and as for the CHEW, I still say ABC was crazy!

Katie I so agree with you I still won’t watch abc daytime and the Chew should be on all the other cooking channels. Do they think they don’t have enough of them yet. Kendall played by Alica has got to come back. What will Zack do without her?? Not that he cant’ play any role they give him but the show is about them to together for ever.No one else will ever fit into her role with Zack. So I hope they don’t try that one.

If Alicia isn’t back as Kendall, Zandall won’t work. It shocked me to see TK signed on for sure, but without AM it isn’t Zandall. So PLEASE find a way to work with her schedule and bring her back as Kendall.

Eva LaRue Reveals COVID-19 Diagnosis

During former All My Children, B&B and GH star, Jacob Young’s podcast, Real Conversations with Jacob Young, he welcomed his good friend and former Pine Valley cast mate, Eva LaRue (Ex-Maria, AMC, and Celeste, Y&R).

At the very top of the episode, LaRue revealed she and her daughter Kaya tested positive for Covid-19.  She shared, “We thought we had dodged a bullet, but sure enough, on New Year’s Eve, we both tested positive.”

“Oddly enough,” she goes on to say, “I really feel like we’ve been so sick of being scared to death of the invisible monster underneath the bed all last year, always looking over our shoulders.”  Eva added, “Nobody knows which one they are. Are they someone who’s going to survive it or succumb to it? Or have residual effects? All we can do is pray for the best.”

 

However, LaRue has been trying alternative methods of helping her with Covid-19 via IV treatments.  “I’ve got this amazing integrative doctor who I’ve been working with for a long time, and I know a lot of people are like, ‘No, we only do Western medicine,’ and that’s fine, I love Western medicine… but integrated medicine and Western medicine have to go hand in hand, in my opinion. Because, I just feel like, we need to open our minds to what is new and what is out there.”   So because of that, Eva has chosen to receive these treatments to hopefully starve off any long term effects of Covid.

In addition, Eva told Young she has hopes for the new primetime All My Children reboot that is in the works:  “I have my fingers crossed that they’ll be doing something with this new Pine Valley show.”   Remember, the Santos family and the Kanes are said to be the epicenter of the revival, so perhaps LaRue will be a guest-star on it, since she is also close friends with two of the EP’s, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC)!

Send your well-wishes to Eva and her daughter, Kaya and let us know would you love to see LaRue on the ‘Pine Valley’ primetime reboot?  Comment below.

All My Children Primetime Reboot “Pine Valley” in the Works at ABC from Kelly Ripa & Mark Consuelos and Andrew Stearn

Huge news that could bring back a new updated version of daytime’s All My Children to primetime!

ABC is eyeing a revival of Agnes Nixon’s long-running beloved series that ran for 41 years on the network and then saw an online reboot from Prospect Park that lasted only one season.

According to Deadline, former AMC stars Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo) will executive produce along with Andrew Stearn and Agnes Nixon’s son, Robert Nixon.

 

The series is currently in the early stages of development, but what has been revealed is: the reboot will be written/executive produced by Leo Richardson (Katy Keene, Star), and it will center on a young journalist with a secret agenda who comes to expose the dark and murderous history of a town named Pine Valley only to become entangled in a feud between the Kane and Santos families. The series explores all the secrets that come with the Kane and Santos family names.

In the new incarnation, Pine Valley, will feature a new generation of characters and some old favorites.  As of this moment, no original cast members have deals, but the plan would be to have them make appearances, plus Ripa and Consuelos could also make a cameo.  Of course, many are already pondering if Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) might actually be a mainstay on the new primetime series; since the Kanes are one of the core families in the reboot.

Pine Valley plans to continue the original series’ tradition of tackling difficult social issues of our time and being inclusive, which the show was known for under the iconic Agnes Nixon’s storytelling.

Of note is that Stearn is also a lifelong fan of AMC and has been the driving force behind the reboot.  In fact when he was deciding between ABC Signature and one other studio for an overall deal, he chose ABC Signature because it was going to allow him to pursue his dream of rebooting All My Children.  It was then he started tracking down the rights to the soap.  As soap fans know, the rights to AMC reverted back to ABC after Prospect Park’s online version fell apart.

Later, after meeting with a number of writers to helm Pine Valley, Stearn went with Richardson, who had worked on the British soap EastEnders in his native Britain. Stearn also got on board the estate of Agnes Nixon, with son Robert Nixon joining the project as an executive producer.

So what do you think of “Pine Valley”, the All My Children primetime reboot being in development?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
