I hope they can get a few more members of the cast of both shows as the cast right now looks a little thin on All My Children.

I was thinkg the same in regards to AMC! it doesn’t seem as many want to return and Susan Lucci is STILL MIA! I don’t think they can afford her.

Susan is doing a TV show. She can’t leave it as there is a contract for her, which she did before all of this coming back alive came about.. I wish she could come back though!!!

i agree about amc am glas thor kaye will be on but hope they bring am as kendal
hopefully

and susan lucci needs to come on board also tad

pv will not be same without erica kane and tad

Thin? It’s two pounds away from organ failure lol! It so upsetting and it’s because AMC was in the wrong hands for too long. The show was hastily moved to the west coast and ABC never supported It the way it should have. Now So much time has passed since ABC was a beautifully told storY about people we loved. Let’s hope it’s not too late. Tune in tomorrow!

O M G!!!! I literally have goosebumps. I am doing the happy dance! Woo Hoo! 🙂

High fives all around!!!!! It’s happening!!!! It’s really happening!!!

SO EXCITED!! CAN’T WAIT!!!!!!!!!

Love this news!!! One Life to Live really is alive again!!

The news just keeps getting better every day.

I am so thrilled by all this news………I waited and never gave up hope that AMC and OLTL would really return. Really happy to see the cast of OLTL really are coming back together!!!!!! Can’t wait for the return!!!!!

AMC’s list is looking so sad. But that’s because most of the actors located to LA for the series’ move. And unlikely that a lot will once again re-locate. So getting original cast members is going to be harder. So I’m expecting a good bunch of recasts to that series or a complete re-vision of what’s happening on it. I hope more sign on like Christina Bennett Lind (Bianca), Sarah Glendening (Marissa), Rebecca Budig (Greenlee) and people like that!

Let’s not forget the main players too. Tad, Dr. Martin, Kendal, and Jr. What about Erica and Jackson. Remember the last scene before it ended someone was shot and it looked like Erica

I could care less if Erica or Jackson returned. Both characters were bore for me. JR/Jake got annoying for me, too.

this is the biggest surprise…. why no word on Tad…. ?

Brooke would make an excellent grand dame… along with Opal.

I could do without Rebecca Budig, to be honest. Couldn’t stand her character or Cameron Mathison’s Ryan, but I would love for Christina and Sarah to sign on!! And of course, Susan Lucci!!

I could care if Susan returned to the show. Not a fan.

If Susan came back; great. If not, won’t be watching. Hard to imagine Pine Valley without Erica Kane…

I couldn;t stand Ryan and Greenlea either,i hope they do not come back…I liked OLTL better than AMC anyway….AMC was very boring with the storylines they had…

I sincerely hope Christina and Sarah come back…. it took some time… and took awhile… but, THESE TWO, MADE THEM THEIR OWN. It was so loving, moving, and familial… A treat to watch.

Bianca and Marissa!

The OLTL cast is fantastic! The writing staff on the the other hand…

Exactly. Carlivati would be a hard act to follow in any case, but I am unimpressed so far with the writers who have been selected. Neither Klein nor Bedsow Horgan made much of an impression when they were (separately) headwriters for As the World Turns.

Your right Alan. Oltl had the best writers who truly understood these characters. Any new writers will need some luck , support, and talent! I hope they have it all!

I need Michael Easton back as John McBain – then my soap world would be complete!! Excited for OLTL!!! Can’t wait for it to start. Hope the writers have Natalie giving birth to John McBain’s little red headed girl! One day maybe he (ME) will be back.

Agree I need Michael Easton back on OLTL also!

I agree too!!! Fingers crossed for Jolie!!!:)

My last wish would be for a Michael Easton return!!!! Please please please soap gods!

He is under contract at General Hospital.

I prefer him with Sam on GH…that story is just getting started and their chemistry is great…

Totally agree.

Definitely want John back on OLTL.

I will be surprised if ME returns to OLTL. Love him on GH & hoping he stays, even if it is as Caleb (which indications point to)

That’s awesome!

I was shocked and beyond thrilled at that “Prospect” of Thorsten joining the AMC Reboot. I thought there was no way they would get him. Prospect Park has done a fantastic job thus far of getting some of the great actors of AMC past to really make the future one successful. Each actor chosen has had a key role on the show in the past.

I agree completely! So glad to hear of Thorsten Kaye and Tuck Watkins, wasn’t sure if either would sign on. I hope OLTL also grabs Trevor St. John and that GH keeps Roger Hawarth. There is so much story to be told about the Lord twins and crossovers between the two shows would be mutually beneficial. I also hope OLTL signs Ilene Kristen as Roxy. Her humor, like Tuck’s is amazing.

Very happy the actors that signed so far I can’t wait to see what the stories are going to be. I want to wish everyone good luck . Michael thanks again have a great day.

…has me less than enthusiastic. Really wish Ron Carlivati could be doing OLTL and GH to create a real shared universe between Llanview and Port Charles.

I completely agree. That would be the best case scenario.

it would be pretty amazing…. if RC could DO BOTH… helming both shows… would ensure… credibility… and SOS…. save our soaps.

I’m doing the happy dance! Keep the good news coming!

Me too! Petal’s are back! .. Main khushi hoon!!!
I feel being all the big stars are signing on that it is hush hush that a cable deal is in progress..
That is what I think, they know , we don’t.. 🙂
This is going to be sooo much better than we imagine it will be!

But what about Walt Willey aka jackson Montgomery? I guess Erica isn’t coming back, so she must be the one shot. I know Walt has posted that he has not been contacted. Hmmmm.

You know, that’s a good question. I did not know that Walt Willey was not approached ~ either they are allowing his character of Jackson to exit, as he did on the last show, and let it go at that – I don’t know. But if Susan Lucci chooses not to reprise the character of Erica Kane, which somehow I suspect since she is busy with other projects, then where will the storyline of Erica and Jackson go? Maybe this new inception of the show will go in many directions, but they need the basic characters to at least get it going one way or another. We are accustomed to smaller and supporting roles being recast (I mean there have been several Bianca[s], each of the good in different ways) but can we accept the major characters being portrayed by an all new cast, I don’t know – is it better to “write around” them until they come aboard?

Ok love this so far for OLTL but still need Jessica, Kelly, and Victor.

That’s right!!

Kind of a confused, how can the age Matthew and Destiny and not age Danielle or Jack. Otherwise the cast looks great. I just wish they woudl bering back the original actors for Matthew and Destiny.

Jennifer, my EXACT thought as well !!!! I am thrilled with all of those already signed on to return to each show, but why on earth would they not want the original Matthew and Destiny, since they are bringing Danni and Jack back. I know they will now be parents of an infant, but I can see Eddie Alderson and Shenell Edmonds playing those parts quite well. I know Eddie moved to the West Coast, and if it were the decision of both actors not to return, then I will be disappointed, yet would understand, as it is their choice, but I did not read anything about either of them turning down an offer to return, so I am guessing they were not asked back. I guess time will tell. I would also enjoy seeing little Sam Manning return too. He was so adorable.

I am also keeping my fingers crossed that Trevor St. John can return as well, even if it is for short stints, since I know he is involved in other endeavors!!

Matthew; yes. Destiny; no. Her acting was as bad as Jack’s (and HE’S coming back?!)

I find that a bit rude. Shennell’s acting improved alot. She was better then some others who I will not name.

We need Trevor St John so that the cliff hanger can be solved.

That’s right it would be great for everyone to know that Todd never really killed him….and it would give tea a great love story.

Plzzzzzzz tell me Bree Williamson will return as well!! She needs to be there. Awesome awesome actress!!!!!!!!!!!

she moved to California and is starring in Deception…

Bree’s stint on Haven is wrapped up. She only had the pilot episode in Deception. I too hope she’ll come back.

Yes,I saw her on Deception last week but I dont think she is committed to anything right now so she can come back if they ask her and if theyre smart they WILL!!!!

Bree wasn’t just in the pilot. She also does flashbacks in future episodes to explain her past, leading up to the character’s murder. But, I hope she comes back to OLTL; she was one of my favorites.

glad to see the soaps coming back to life just like in the movies… What channel will they be on…

http://www.toln.com at first; they’re still working on what cable channel…

Super excited! Can’t wait for the shows to start. I’ve really missed OLTL !

Looks like a good cast so far, but where are Rex and Gigi? I hope they show up at least once in a while, Langston also.

Farah Fath doesn’t seem to want to come back, and it appears she wasn’t asked either. She indicated she was pretty much done with soaps when she left.

It also appears that JPL wasn’t asked back. At least not yet.

I hope she hasn’t “gone” HOLLYWOOD… it’s a shame….

these actors certainly deserve more than?

Farah Fath… SUCCESSFULLY ACTED IN TWO SOAPS…. days & oltl. that’s a rare feat.

Hopefully, she hasn’t turned her back on the genre.

She’s a likeable actress.

They were asked – but both said no! That was on here last week or so.

I’m just wondering how much airtime we’ll actually get. If the show’s are going to be only 30 minutes…with time out for commericals…what do we get? Fifteen minutes of show?

it will b much the same..

I watch the soaps on the web, they run are 36 minutes with the commercials..

The reason they are an hour on network TV is because of all the commercials ..

yes but I’m assuming there’ll be commercials on their site as wel. there are on Hulul…not just 30 minutes straight. so it will probably be much shorter…hope I’m wrong because that would be really minimal.

I think that will all depend on what platform PP uses.

The soaps that are rebroadcast on the web – all of the current ones which are accessed either directly or indirectly via the networks are dependent for their online viewing from the network broadcast, with the network formula for ads.

The online only soaps do it differently and in fact aren’t always following a strict halfhour format. They usually have only a few – up to 4, usually – commercials, never more than 60 seconds long.

I think we’ll be seeing more show than commercial in a big way.

So happy, thrilled, the whole 9 yards:)))!!!! I hope AMC gets more sign ons. Would like to see Tad, Brooke, guessing David Canary is retired, so no Adam. Waiting to hear about the GH3. Very curious about that, would like to see John/Nat again, FINALLY.
Still very great news, thanks Mr. Fairman:)

I’m hoping since David Canary lives in Ct. he’ll be back even if part-time. I hope MEK comes back. I do see this as an opportunity to bring back core families like the Cortlands with recasts. I would love Nina , Pete, Bobby and the clan come back to PV. Cliff can be re-cast since its been so long. He could come back to PVHospital. So many possibilities

Wow…. The Cortlandts’…..

Amazing memories…. I LOVED NINA.

You have made my day!! I miss all of them, but especially my heros, Robert S. Woods and Hillary B. Smith!! Woo! Happy Dance indeed!!

I’m really excited and happy to hear that PP has gotten so many of the original OLTL actors to come back and reprise their characters on the reboot! Sounds like it will really be recognizable as OLTL with the main nucleus of the old show coming back!
The only thing missing is the John McBain character and Starr and Todd and/or Victor.
I just hope something can be worked out withABC/GH to keep those characters on GH and maybe have them make occasional appearances on the PP OLTL show..
Trevor St John could come back as Victor! Now that would be Great!!

Wow! I am so happy with this big casting news for OLTL. With this new endeavor on the internet, I would never imagine so many big time players signing on to do OLTL. Thank you, PP and to the performers who have signed on thus far. I can’t wait for April.

Best. News. Ever.

WE NEED TREVOR ST JOHN /VICTOR,I LOVE VICTOR N TEA , AND SAM /PATRICKI’ GLAD ABOUT EVERYONE ELSE BUT I’ DISAPPOINTED THAT SHENEL AND EDDIE, MOST OF ALL I WANT TSJ ,PP GIVE HI WHATEVER HE WANTS,PLEASE.

I’ve been jumping up and down we almost have the whole OLTL cast back minus the three on GH and Jessica! Now if they could just work out a deal where they are on OLTL then visit GH and not the other way around LOL the way it was for the last 9yrs or so!!!!!! Happy happy day!

Agreed Lynn!

With Thorsten Kaye on AMC, I hope Susan Haskell (Marty) will be back on OLTL, given they are married in real life.

Hey Mr. Fairman, isn’t time to take oltl and Amc off the R I P mark?

I recieved my first email from The Online Network ! confirming the return of OLTL, so I second the above question.

or maybe you could put “returning this April”

I hope they bring Jessica back. She’s my fav. Loved her and Ford.

Yes even if Bree can’t come back they need Jessica. Jen Lilley from GH or Martha Madison from Days would be great! Also where is Brody?

They could bring back the old Jessica, Erin Torpey, since Bree Williamson is in California.

Love the additions to OLTL!!! So glad that it’s official that Viki, Tea, Bo, Nora, David, Blair are definitely back. And I’m glad to see Vimal back, even if it is recurring. I always thought he was so entertaining and funny. I’m glad to see Cutter back too, I hope he’s shirtless often like he was before lol.

I’m glad to see Melissa back as Natalie, I always liked her. Can Brody come back for her since John will likely stay on GH? He was man candy too! And I actually liked Bree as Jessica, she could always come back sometime, never know.

And I’m happy to see the girl returning as Danielle. She’s very pretty and a good actress. Jack I’m not so sure about. I hope the actor has gotten better in the year they have been off. He definitely has the looks, just has to bring the acting!

And I hope the boy who played Sam comes back also, too bad he can’t stay little and cute like that but for so long! Hope to see Roxy, Tina, and Gabrielle, even if it’s recurring.

At AMC I’m glad to see Jessie, Zach, and Opal coming back also. But AMC needs a lot more vets to come back!!! I’d love to see Tad and Dixie back!

OLTL… what with Cutter, David… and hopefully… Trevor St. John…

these three… are serious, major, eye candy… and/or beefcake…

not to mention… they are incredible actors.

Oh I forgot to mention Trevor! Yes, he needs to be on OLTL also! If they won’t have Todd and John they need a male lead in the 40s and he’s perfect for it! And yes he is definitely beefcake and eye candy too!

Definitely need Ilene Kristen as Roxy!!!! She made the show have comedy too. Also the Buchanan butler!

I swear you guys are reading my mind, I seriously meant to include TSJ as Victor, Roxy, and Nigel in the people I would like on OLTL also. There are so many favorites to want to bring back!!!

The oltl cast looks great!!! I am so excited for the show to start up again. I have missed it so much!!!

Susan Lucci.

AMC needs Michael E. Knight more than anyone else.

Definitely, he was major part of show.

Who is Griffin Castillo?

Cara’s doctor brother, once Dr. Hayward’s biggest booster until he realized what a louse he was!

He’s the cute Latino doctor who fell for Kendall when Zach was presumed dead. His sister is Cara and she was married to Jake.

So, how is this going to work…will this be broadcast on Hulu or the like. Will we be able to watch on TV, or only on a computer?

Probably computer, phone, ipad…

I think it’s only available online and you’ll have to pay a fee to watch.

They need Tad, Dixie, Greenlee, they can recast Kendall (maybe even bring back Sarah Michelle), Brooke would be nice to see, Amanda, Jake and a few new faces would be nice to add to the list. Also, I hope and pray that PP is looking to take AMC & OLTL to a cable network. I will be watching the online venture, but I really would like to see both shows make a return to television…..if for any reason, to just stick it to ABC…LOL

Without some kind of TV deal to share the costs, this has very little chance of getting off the ground. And without Susan Lucci, AMC might as well stay cancelled. It wasn’t exactly drawing in crowds when she was still on toward the end on ABC. This has “FLOP” written all over it.

Unless you’ve some inside knowledge we don’t, then I can’t imagine what you even mean. PP isn’t new at this, they’ve got other series up and running. And they’ve got the financial backing to put both shows back up and running. There aren’t that many numbskulls around with tons of money to lose, so it’s very safe to say that the people who are backing this believe it will work. Not only hope, but believe, with a sound basis. Unless you’re in the industry yourself, and based on what you wrote, you’re not, then you’re only blowing smoke because you like the smell.

Nothing makes some people happier than raining on a parade without the facts to back it up.

There isn’t always a cloud in every silver lining.

Thanks for the endorsement.

Why don’t they COMBINE the two soaps!

This sounds fantastic! You just need to make Michael Easton/John McBain a definite! I need more John and Natalie!!!

JOLIE = Awesome!

Please bring back Roxy!

Yes we need Roxy! Rather have her then Sean (Destiny’s brother)
Also think they need Cutter’s mother Alex Olanov to cause trouble. Maybe a recast Adrianna too so Dorian has a daughter to deal with.

I second that!!!!!!

Stunned by the list of actors reprising their roles on OLTL. This is just the best news. Bring back the GH3, Roxy who was so wonderful at the end and little Sam. Practically weeping tears of joy.

It’s Stunning to even comprehend….

it’s calming to realize that what we’ve loved for YEARS…. and for A LOT of US!!!!

I’ve never cared… what people have said about soaps…. I love this stuff….

High Five!

Just thrilled with the latest additions especially Thorsten! It seems too good to be true. Now all we need is for Alicia to return for Zach & Kendall to carry on. 🙂

OLTL is looking great!!! All we need here is Kassie and Trevor to sign on, and maybe Ted King for Blair. 🙂 Can’t wait to see Tea & Victor together if they can get Trevor back.

Kassie is in the above list. 🙂

Thanks, I can’t believe I forgot that, because she is so important to me, in the overall cast.

Things are really looking up for the OLTL fans! 🙂

With the signing of Thorsten Kaye hopefully Alicia Minshew will sign and Team Slater will be back on my screen. AMC definitely needs the return of the core families. Happy for OLTL fans getting so many cast favorites returning.

Krystal… and her daughters…. at the very least Marissa…..

Bobbie Eakes.

The Core Family on AMC so far are the Castillos and Hubbards. Where are the Martins and the Kanes and the Chandlers? AMC is about Multi class and Multi generational families. When that changed in the late 90’s the show went down hill.

OLTL is Rock Solid! Happy the Vatel’s are added. (the first hindu family in daytime)

AMC needs several shots in the arm if the online venture is going to work: a matriarch busybody character like Phoebe Tyler Wallingford to add some fun (while giving more meaningful storyline to Opal), a character we the audience could relate to as our beloved grandmother like the Myrtle Fargate character, and of course Tad and Dixie to add heart and focus to the show. Above all, I hope some INTERESTING AND INTRIGUING STORIES are on the way. I’ve loved AMC since 1975 but for many of the recent years it was on the air, the storylines were dull and repetitive and characters thin and one-dimensional. I would appreciate stores that are relatable, real, heart-felt (a la Knots Landing) with a dash of mystery rather than so much emphasis on beauty and glamour.

I am *so* happy for OLTL as it appears it has the ingredients to be interesting and successful. Hooray!

Your points are very well made ~ ALL MY CHILDREN got a little repetitive towards the end with too much storyline around the Ryan and Kendall and Greenlee trio –
and no disrespect intended but they need stronger actors and not just pretty faces to keep the action moving along. I am not really sad that the actor who is known for portraying Ryan may not return for the online presentation. I hope the writing is interesting and I hope they do some respectable recasting of important roles.
