As The World Turns

ATWT films it's final episode and its a sad day in Brooklyn :(

Today the “World” stop turning for the current cast of As the World Turns when it taped its 13,858th and final episode at its Brooklyn studios, ending its storied run on CBS.   EW.com was issued a statement today from Brian T. Cahill, senior VP and managing director of TeleNext Media, Inc.  “We have aggressively pursued network and cable outlets as well as syndication options, and have explored many innovative formats and relationships that we hoped would ultimately enable the future success of As The World Turns.  Regrettably, we have not found an outlet or platform that will carry the show forward. This is an extremely disappointing outcome to what was a tireless and exhaustive pursuit.

While we are sad to see As The World Turns come to an end, we remain proud of the achievements the show has made over the last 54 years and are extremely grateful to the loyal fans who invited us into their homes every day.  There is still much in store for the show’s well-loved characters throughout the summer, and although the show will go off the air in September, the remaining stories will honor the remarkable history of As The World Turns.”

Colleen Zenk Pinter (Barbara) had been tweeting throughout the final days, and here were some of her thought which told the story for how her and many of her co-stars felt.  “Just read the last script. So beautiful. How can we get through it? A puddle of tears.”  “Here I go… One last day of love & angst in Oakdale, Illinois…my last day of Barbara…Barbara’s set is only a memory…Almost gone… Two more scenes as Babs… The walls are bare. The drawers are empty. It’s a wrap……ATWT…..xoxoxoxoxox”

Well soapers, can’t believe the final tape date has already happened.   I know many of you are very disheartened, as is On-Air On-Soaps.

Only Luke appears in the ATWT finale. There’s a list of all the actors that appear in the ATWT finale. Only van hansis is a part of the list, so the finale of ATWT will most likely not feature a “happy ending” for any coupling for Luke.

Lesli Kay’s Molly not being in ATWT’s finale is worse than any of the Luke pairings not being there.

Here are all the characters in the finale:

Bob Hughes, Kim Hughes, Chris Hughes, Margo Hughes, Tom Hughes, Casey Hughes, Katie Peretti, Lisa Grimaldi, John Dixon, Jack Snyder, Carly Tenney, Sage Snyder, Parker Snyder, Rosanna Cabot, Craig Montgomery, Paul Ryan, Emily Stewart, Eliza Ryan, Barbara Ryan, Henry Coleman, Susan Stewart, Alison Stewart, Holden Snyder, Lily Snyder, Natalie Snyder, Luke Snyder, Faith Snyder, Ethan Snyder, Lucinda Walsh, Johnny Donovan, Dusty Donovan, Janet Ciccone, and Lorenzo (Janet’s son)

No happy ending for Luke.

I am very sad to see this soap end. I have been a faithful viewer since I was in college many years ago. I will miss the stories and characters of Oakdale immensely. I feel that CBS has made a mistake in canceling this soap. The decison in my opinion was done in haste, because of the economy, which does not justify canceling a soap of sixty (60) plus years on the air. The economy will improve in due time, but we will never retrieve the enjoyment this soap has given to many long-term viewers. Best wishes to all of… Read more »

I’ve watched this show most of my life (36 years) … it’s like losing a member of the family, and I can’t really imagine how the veterans of the show must feel, losing the jobs they’ve held for so long. It’s the end of the Procter & Gamble, New-York-produced soap opera that has served as the template all through the years. We are down to one show with Irna Phillips’ influence … Somehow, I was hoping that ATWT could somehow tip their hat to those P&G shows that have gone before. Dr. Bob Hughes, as he retires from the hospital:… Read more »

The TeleNext executive mentions a “tireless and exhaustive pursuit” made by the company to find another broadcaster for the show. What exactly did the company do to try to find another outlet? I haven’t heard ANY rumor that TeleNext did ANYTHING to try to keep this show on the air. Am I right to question the genuineness of the statement or have I missed something????

TELENEXT didn’t do jack! It is the same spin they use for GL cancellation! Shame on CBS and Telenext!

To my NUKE friends, we will soon see what the writer did with Luke’s story line. The fact the Noah and Reid are not in the last episode, could leand to many possibilties. I for one am hoping the writers stayed true to their original vision and the hearts of true NUKE fans. The die is cast, we have fought a good fight, now it remains to be seen as we all watch the last episodes and say goodbye to Oakdale…NUKE forever!

I can’ believe cbs would cut As the world turns. I’ve watched this show with my grandma, and my mom all of my life (33 years) and still do. This is so sad, i do not watch any other soap, and dont plan to. As a matter of fact i am so angry i dont plan to watch cbs at all! I feel like im losing part of my family. good luck to the wonderful cast of As the world turns.

I have been a fan ATWT since 1958 when I had my first little girl. It was a topic of conversation in our neighborhood. Many sad things and good things to look forward to in our everday world. Very sad and I will miss all the people that were almost family. Good luck to the cast. BYE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As the World Turns Cast To Perform Virtual Reading Of Final Episode

In a once-in-a soap-lifetime event during the Covid-19 pandemic, the cast of As the World Turns will reunite for one night online for a virtual reading of the CBS daytime drama’s final episode that aired back 10 years ago this past September,

This livestream event is for a good cause and is brought to you by former ATWT cast member, Trent Dawson’s (Ex-Henry) theatre group The Katonah Classic Stage.  Dawson is the artistic director there.

Over 26 veteran cast members from ATWT, including Larry Bryggman, Don Hastings, Kathryn Hays, Elizabeth Hubbard, Michael Park and more are set to participate in the reading plus some surprise guests.

The show will be streamed  n The Locher Room YouTube channel, 0n Wednesday night, October 28th at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST, where fans will also  have the opportunity to comment and ask questions of the cast,

The event is asking for a $15 donation to be able to see it and you can click here for more info!

Working with Katonah Classic Stage (KCS), a professional, nonprofit theatre group an hour north from New York City, Dawson is hoping this event will help those in need.  KCS has access to outdoor performance space that can provide a safer, more  socially-distant experience for the artists and the audience. The fundraiser not only  applies to salaries, but to health care as well; without employment most artists are ineligible for health coverage during a time when such insurance is critically important.

So what do you think of getting these beloved stars from ATWT together for a good cause to relive and read the script of the final episode from Oakdale? Comment below.
