AMC's Debbi Morgan Clarifies Previous Tweets Stating: "Yea, We've Been Canceled!"

Courtesy/ABC

This evening in a series of tweets, Daytime Emmy winner, Debbi Morgan (Angie Hubbard), who early on Saturday, took to Twitter to send a message to her loving fans that she is just a disappointed as they are of the status of season two of All My Children ending with “Thanks for the memories”,  clarified further on Sunday when prompted by fans inquiries as to what she meant exactly since no official announcement came from Prospect Park on if the soap opera was definitely not coming back at this time.

Morgan was asked,  Does this mean they finally gave u confirmation that it won’t be back? Not surprised, but why can’t they just tell us?”  Debbi revealed,  “Yes, my manager was given the news by PP’s lawyer…”   And as to how everyone was doing involved with AMC, Debbi added, “Well, we’re all pretty much sad now for real since we’ve definitely been told that’s a wrap!”

Another of her twitter followers then asked, “So does this mean the web series got canceled? I haven’t read anything about it online. :(”  To which Debbi responded, “Yea, we’ve been canceled.”

As you can see, once Morgan made the tweets, they spread like wild-fire being re-tweeted by many fans following the situation as to the status of All My Children, and those who thanked Morgan for clarifying and  sharing their sadness about Pine Valley.

All My Children ran on ABC till September 2011, and then was revived online by Prospect Park when it debuted on April 29th of this year!

So, what do you think of Debbi Morgan’s responses/tweets that All My Children is not returning?  Share your thoughts below!

I think it’s very kind of her to be honest and let us know. She is a class act. She deserves to win an Emmy for her performance on the AMC reboot. I hope she gets it. I wish her all the best.

Thursday, November 7, 2013 @ 3:52 PM Robin Strasser on Possible End of AMC/OLTL: ‘‘Prospect Park Believed and Invested In Us and Deserve Respect For That!’’ When pressed for comment on any plans for a formal announcement on the future of either soap, a Prospect Park representative stated, “No announcement planned.” IF, PP is not ready to make an ”it’s over” announcement then they are still working on it, hopefully.. I feel PP dose not want to give up their dream and will silently keep trying until the last drop of sweat falls.. From past years and what we’ve all… Read more »

Honestly, i wish you were right…i wasnt 100% into the revivals but OLTL was improving near the end…On the bright side at least we got to see them again even for a short time and we should all be thankful for that…

Very disappointing news………but I have to say, it wasn’t the same when it came back online. I tried to get in to it, but I just couldn’t. So it’s not that much of a surprise to me, I had a feeling.
I will certainly miss “my kids”….but I’ve gotten used to not seeing them. A large part of my life is missing now.

Well, it is Y&R for me. Hope to see more AMC actors start there. David needs to go to Y&R. David, Cara, and Oliver could all go to Y&R. I hope ABC daytime continues to fail. I hope all talk shows fail. It is time to let go and hope our favorite actors get added to an existing soap except for GH. I will never forget the fun I had watching AMC. Thanks, Agnes. Thanks for trying PP. It has been a long time coming but I have actually become interested in Y&R. I like watching shows online but some… Read more »

well, i’m sure to tell you, then, that GH is doing better than it has done in years and even the much-reviled The Chew has hit the 3-million mark (not saying i’m happy about this or understand it, but it’s true) for the first time. ABC daytime is in great shape and nowhere near failing.

Not surprised, What makes me so damn mad they said they are involved in a lawsuit with ABC but they are making a series for ABC. You know they can’t shelved them and still pay ABC millions every year. So they have to be back in ABC’s hand. But we will hear all kinds of lies they are not. My hopes that Frank and Ron will do something with them. Michael hope you can gets some answers for us regarding Ron and Frank.

Ok, so my lighthearted post from yesterday sounds like I don’t care… but I really do. This stinks. Without knowing all the facts it is impossible to comment any further than – I am really sad to hear of this, sad to see our actors, crew, writers etc out of work again, and mad that PP didn’t clue us in on this at all.

I love Debbi Morgan but something about this just rings false…sorry it does…there has been NO MENTION of it from other people that includes OLTL people…and was it cancelled or shelved….which as i have stated before means two different things… personally i believe PP is just trying to get the lawsuit settled befpre making any rash decisions…and people wont even let them do that….the lack of support from fans is mindblowing…they brought them back…yeah it took a year but they did bring them back and showed more respect to the soap opera then ABC ever did…I really doubt they cancelled… Read more »

What a let down. Everyone involved did everything they could to make these shows work and now they are gone again. More jobs lost again. Now I kinda wonder if Michael E Knight, Susan Lucci, and Alicia Minshew were smart not investing their time in the reboot because they saw the writing on the wall. Oh well it was fun while it lasted. RIP again AMC and OLTL.

This is RIDICULOUS!! Thanks PP for keeping our hopes up, only to crush them yet again!!!! I knew we couldn’t count on them to continue on!!!! Thanks for ruining the characters of Todd, Star & John as well on OLTL!! ABC & PP REALLY REALLY SUCK!!!! It’s amazing how NBC & CBS STAND BEHIND & SUPPORT their remaining soaps!!!!

I guess it´s time to put R.I.P. back on.

I just feel sad for the staff losing their jobs (AGAIN) and I feel sorry for the fans of both shows.
For the SECOND time PP screwed all those people over, they made them hope (TWICE) and took it all away….. Do the execs still have their jobs?

What a giant mess ABC and PP made of this entire thing. Very sad. I was enjoying the re-load. Now what about OLTL? Will that suffer the same fate? Too bad ABC could not just admit they made a huge mistake and bring them both back. Heartbreaking for millions of fans.

This is heartbreaking news. We have lost our beloved shows once again. I have loved OLTL since it first aired on TV and have truly enjoyed the online version of AMC. I’m sure there will be a great deal of anger directed at PP. Perhaps it is deserved. I don’t know. From my stand point, I am grateful they tried after the owners of the shows threw them away along with us fans. I have to thank everyone who tried to make this work. Thank you to PP and the casts and crews who worked so hard to keep out… Read more »

I get that PP had to inform all the actors and crew first, but in this day and age of social media it is unfortunate the news gets out before PP can give an official statement to the fans. After so many supported their attempt to bring these soaps back to life, there should have been a more respectful way of ending things–

It is beyond sad to lose AMC and OLTL once again. But I’m very grateful to PP for bringing them back, even though it appears not to have worked out for the long term. Without PP, we wouldn’t have seen either show again. And although at times the reboots were uneven, I thought the heart of both shows was there, and we got the chance to see some old “friends” again, and we also got to see some pretty good new talent. And, for me, the PP reboot of AMC in particular was so much better than the show had… Read more »

“The villians of this piece are the ABC execs.” Amen!!!!!!!!!! I have not and will not forget that fact. And I pray that millions of other fans remember that fact as well. I have not and will not knowingly support anything produced by or associated with the alphabet network or the mouse company. I know there are thousands of other people who do the work, “make it happen”, and I have nothing against any of them. But, their bosses caused this mess and I will have nothing to do with either company. I strongly hope other viewers take the same… Read more »

I feel the same way, PP tried they are the only ones that did, for that I am grateful, I will always blame Abc and I won’t have anything to do with the rat network again, Other then GH, I hope they have to have new Talk shows till the ends of time having to cancel every one of them, They had a wonderful afternoon line-up and because of greed they killed the best afternoon they will ever have, The Chew is so painfully stupid, Having to watch a minute at the end waiting for GH to come on makes… Read more »

Not happy about it and I guess the same goes for OLTL..PP is such a disappointment.. They got our hopes up once more only to be shot down again.. I think our soaps weren’t in capable hands. I think PP didn’t know which end was up. I my opinion I think these two soaps would have done much better on another cable channel on the t.v. Not a happy camper about this at all!

Well, I’m not surprised to hear this news. We all can assume that OLTL has been cancelled as well. I feel that Prospect Park had no idea what they were doing. This is unfortunate for all the fans who fought so hard to get the shows back. They didn’t uphold the same level of integrity and quality of writing we’ve been used to when they were on ABC. I’m also upset that they made GH change the three OLTL characters to new characters and the shows aren’t even returning. I’ve gotten use to their new characters now. Well, maybe ABC… Read more »

This is one of the fastest crash and burns I’ve ever seen. The shows premiere at the end of April, get cut back in mid-May and go on hiatus in June. Those in charge were seasoned television executives who supposedly know how to plan and budget. The tell-all on this one will be a must-read. Who will get the exclusive?

Has more to do with the fact that they were not getting the views needed to pay for the show. They thought they would get it, but they didn’t. I don’t know how many posts I have read with AMC/OLTL fans saying that they are not watching it, ans complaining about the show (just like they did when it was on ABC)

Dennis
Guest
Dennis

That’s my point. PP supposedly budgeted (and announced) 160 episodes per season per show. They actually produced around 40 of each. You need time to (re) build an audience. It’s obvious NOW that they were totally underfunded and should not have proceeded at this time. They over promised and under delivered.

The real heroes are the cast and crew who came back on the cheap to deliver for the fans. I salute them!

Sad that it was not able to continue. The thing with Hulu (and other websites) they know every IP address that goes to their site. They know how long you stay and how many times you watch a particular show. (What they don’t know is how many people from that IP address are watching) I watched episode 22 of both show last night. And when I went their it was all set up at episode 22, like it knew I watched episode 21 a few weeks ago. If it was getting the views that it needed to pay for the… Read more »

PP shouldve done revival movies of both soaps…at least 3 a year…then they couldve made money by renting out their studio/sets when not using them to other entertainment companies to use for commercials ect. AT LEAST THEY TRIED…LETS BE GRATEFUL FOR THAT!!!

Now can the OLTL characters come back to GH…plus GH should bring David Hayward( AMCs Vincent izzary?) to the series and make him a new love interest for Laura(if we get Genie back) then after Laura marries him he turns out to be a Cassidine no one knew existed!!!

I am hoping that PP can still make this happen and bring back OLTL and AMC. After we all thought it was over when OLTL went off the air, PP continously kept on trying to figure out how to get them on the net. And they did. Unfortunately, they bit off more than they could chew. They were trying to fit this daytime media into 4 days a week for a half hour. Then quickly changed to 2 days a week for 30 minutes. That’s like watching a nighttime program in one sitting. These shows were fighting an uphill battle… Read more »

What a huge mess. Yes, Mk, the biggest problem in this for me -aside from the multiple cancellations – is that the cross over characters. GH was just really starting to integrate some of the better characters and I have no doubt that a couple AMC characters would have found their way to Port Charles eventually too. I suppose that once PP officially cancels the shows and ABC and PP settle whatever their legal issues are (it always seemed to be much ado about absolutely nothing), that FrankenTodd could become Todd again and I’d prefer Starr over Kiki but if… Read more »

I personally didn’t enjoy the production quality or stories of the new online versions, and I quickly tuned out, because I wanted to remember these two great shows as they once were, not shells of their former selves. However, having said that, I’m sad for the people whose livelihoods have been adversely affected by all of this. All of the time and energy these writers and actors and production staff put out to try to resurrect these two great shows! Now, the Llanview 3 debacle seems so much more irritating because we could be enjoying our favorite ONE LIFE characters… Read more »

I could not be angrier at Prospect Park. They could have asked for fans’ support ot help them, or at least been honest with us and communicated. I absolutely loved the new All My Children. I was hoping OLTL would improve, a little too much aimed at the young 20s and teens watching, but I loyally viewed. I am crying now. Also, PP could have been more honest with everyone so that Starr ad gang would be on GH. I felt ABC was in the wrong, but this loses us 3 characters we loved. I’m sick, just sick about this.

I never really watched AMC, but I followed it in the press and occasionally tuned in. My show was OLTL. I was as sad for the faithful fans of AMC as I was for fellow-OLTL watchers when the shows were given the ax by ABC. Likewise, I was heartened when PP announced that, indeed, the shows were coming back via the internet. I overlooked many glitches because this was a bold experiment that no one else was willing to try and pull off. At times, it was painful to watch, but I loved my show and believed, that given time,… Read more »

ABC role in the demise of the relaunch, or their attempts, efforts behind the scenes or in the “air waves of the twitter sphere, etc…..”will have to now be determined in a legal manner,that the fans have no friend of the court briefs.

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.
