Well, you really can’t do a reboot of All My Children without Dr. Angie Hubbard now can you?  With that said, there is more great news for soap fans this afternoon. Daytime Emmy winner, Debbi Morgan has announced via her Twitter page that she has signed on for the All My Children reboot!

As has been reported, Debbi joins previously announced commitments from Vincent Irizarry and Lindsay Hartley to be a part of Prospect Park’s online venture in resurrecting the beloved town of Pine Valley!  What’s even more delightful about the news is that today mark’s the anniversary of All My Children, which first aired on ABC, January 5th, 1970!

Morgan tweeted the news of her joining the cast of the reboot stating,  “OK, I can finally announce how thrilled I am 2 B on board w/the “All My Children” re-boot & Prospect Park! Agnes Nixon, you’re my HERO!!!”

So soapers, are you excited that Debbi has signed on for AMC online?  Let us know!

I’ve been dubious but Debbi Morgan… that’s some serious soap cred there. She’s as close to dependable soap royalty as it gets. Staying cautiously optimistic …..

Agreed.

HUGE get! And a much wiser choice for her than when she chose YR over AMC (though I can’t blame her for it….and it gave her a year’s paycheck she wouldn’t have had otherwise, but ultimately it was not a good fit for her).

I made the decision today that if this all goes through, and it will be provided in Canada, I will pay for AMC and OLTL in support of the shows. I never thought of actually going through with it before, but decided that if it does, I want to be a part of it.

SO glad to have Angie on board . I have noticed that those signed are all playing doctors … guess the hospital will be prominent.

This is great. It does sound positive. But it will seem really strange, odd, almost un AMC if they cannot get Susan Lucci. Hopefully something can be arranged with Deadly Affairs and Devious Maids that will allow Lucci to do all. If there is a conflict at the beginning and because AMC may want to start while Lucci is filming Devious Maids they could always kill off Ërica Kane and Jesse who is on Y and R. Have a very sad funeral and bring her back later when she is free claiming there was a huge cover up of a prison break out and it was really Jane Campbell who was seeking revenge Erica was free while she was in jail. Erica then can come back from the dead like AMC. But it would be even greater if they could just film a close up of Jack and Erica and Erica dying (Jane) in Jack’s arms just for ratings. 🙂

Debbi–Agnes Nixon is MY hero, too. I can’t believe she’s made this happen.

It just amazes me how delusional some hardcore AMC/OLTL fans are about this, especially after the first go-round. There is zero concrete proof that this is 100% going to get off the ground and unless/until it does, I remain highly skeptical. PP has zero credibility with this. How about actually hearing some direct quotes from a PP executive for once?

Prospect Park execs are likely not saying much until there’s more to go on. But judging by Agnes’ words, I do believe it’s launching off the ground. More cast signing on is likely another factor into that it’s happening.

The first time there were no EPs/HWs/actors signing on. Now there are.

Chris keep your negativity to yourself. Your energy is not welcome nor your opinion!

Chris, I can appreciate your skepticism, but I don’t think it’s necessary to label people “delusional” because they’re perhaps taking a more optimistic view than may be ultimately justified.

This could still all collapse, it’s true–but on the other hand, it has gotten much further than it did when the idea was first floated, and if Agnes Nixon has come out and announced that it’s happening, she must feel the chances are pretty good.

I think the bigger question probably is whether they’ll return in a form that will satisfy viewers. I think AMC is in a better position for that than OLTL, simply because Carlivati and Valentini aren’t involved in the resuscitation of the latter. But I hope to be pleasantly surprised.

I do take your point that we haven’t heard what we need to hear from Prospect Park yet.

I can’t help but think back to my first major cancellation … and that was ATWT… I wanted to go to the Snyder Farm … and see Emma…. and Just Holden! that family, from Seth to Iva, Ellie,Caleb, Holden, Meg… I’m sure, Emma’s missing a few… she rolled in the hay… some…

anyway… that’s my optimism…. for AMC.

when is the first show and how do we find it on the web. So happy its back yeaaa!!!

This is fantastic news. Maria Arena did not excute her plans with Debbi as Harmony well. There was huge potential with the character and Debbi’s acting talents, but she mis-used them and there was no fixing them.

I cannot wait to see Dr. Angie Hubbard go back into rotation with her eyesight and beautiful baby girl!

Patrick
Patrick

could you see her involved with Dr. David Hayward? Debbi and Vincent killed it…knocked it out of the park…. she brought a humanity to evil Dr. Hayward that sizzled. when she was blind… he could have toyed with her… yet he told her he respected her.

I loved how these two were in the last month(s) of AMC on ABC….

Scott

No. I could not nor would not want to see a relationship between Angie Hubbard and David Hayward. That’s so wrong.

What about OLTL ! What actors & actresses of OLTL? Have any signed up with PP yet?
That’s what I would like to know.

I am totally thrilled about Debbi Morgan coming back to AMC, and of course, I am beyond words to describe how I feel that AMC is being resurrected!!!! Way to go!!!

WATCH: All My Children Reunion On Strahan & Sara

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s Strahan & Sara, the show welcomed several stars of the beloved All My Children for a reunion, of sorts. Joining hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines were Susan Lucci (Erica), Walt Willey (Jack), Cady McClain (Dixie), Jacob Young (JR) and Jill Larson (Opal).

While it was wonderful to see the stars from Pine Valley again, it was also a painful reminder that this network, ABC, canceled the show, and had put in its place – The Chew, and now Strahan & Sara – since canning the series.   In fact, as you will see on the clips below, many of the crew who work on this talk show were once the crew for All My Children.

During the segment, Susan Lucci was tested to see if she remembered all of Erica Kane’s wedded names.  Later, Walt Willey and Susan re-created the final scene of the ABC version of All My Children between Erica and Jack, where Jack walks out on her.  However, this time, they have Jack changing his mind and coming back to Erica and sealing their relationship with a kiss – a moment of closure that never happened (since the show moved to online via Prospect Park).

In addition, Cady McClain and Jacob Young re-created the infamous Dixie “dying from eating poison pancakes” scene, as JR watches his mother die, only this time she lives.

It’s always great to see these veteran performers, but Strahan & Sara is trying to capture the soap viewers to put eyeballs on their show by bringing in talent from the show that sadly and wrongly went off the air.

Watch the clips below from the All My Children reunion below.  Then, let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below.
