The woman all One Life to Live fans were waiting to hear from has finally spoken!  Six-time Daytime Emmy winner Erika Slezak (Viki) last night sent a message to her Fan Club President, Walter Miller, and the message was posted today on her official website.  In the post, Erika gives the latest on her signing on to join Prospect Park’s reboot of One Life to Live!

Erika, the iconic star of One Life, stated:  “I am pleased to officially announce that, pending the final contract, I am joining the revival of One Life to Live which will be produced by Prospect Park and aired on Hulu and iTunes on the internet. We expect to begin production near the middle of March and the air dates are yet to be announced. This will be an exciting and groundbreaking adventure and we hope that you will all join us as we bring back all the characters you loved and possibly some new ones. I will let you all know when a firm air date is announced.”

So soapers, are you excited to hear from Erika? Does it make the whole situation that a year ago seemed impossible a reality for you?  Let us know your thoughts!

It almost seems like a dream! Can’t wait til the time we will be able to watch our Beloved OLTL once again!! Not long ago it seemed hopeless and like our OLTL was gone forever. Now, it all seems much more like reality that it Will Be Back and with lots of our favorite characters and the actors that portrayed them before!!

Erika Slezak is a class act! She is also one of the most underrated stars of daytime. I still remember when she, Susan Lucci and Cameron Matheson appeared on the daytime Emmys after OLTL & AMC were cancelled. Such an uncomfortable moment that she handled with class. Erika is the real grand dame of ABC daytime.

I’m very torn. OLTL ended so perfectly and I’m just worried that this incarnation of the show is going to fail and then I’ll have bad memories of this show. As for Susan Lucci, the only reason all these name actors are signing up is because there is not a lot of work for NY soap actors these days and I’m sure these people want to work, even if it is for a fraction of what they made on ABC. Susan Lucci is doing fine. She has two series and is moving on. Plus I don’t think Propect Park could… Read more »

If Susan Lucci cannot or will not or is just not able to do the new ALL MY CHILDREN, they should let some time pass and re-introduce Erika Kane as played by another fine actress. I realize unfortunately that it is a pivotol role and would be difficult to re-cast, but there have been 4 Bianca’s and there have been countless actors playing Batman and Superman throughout the years – I just think that re-casting roles is a part of soap’s history and even though I love Susan Lucci if they have to re-cast the role then go for it.

Patrick
Guest

Great point David, I agree that while I was heartbroken that OLTL ended. It did so with class and grace. A reboot that turns into a train wreak will tarnish the greatness of the show. I am willing to take the chance on what few would argue was the best soap in history!

Be well and lets all tune in!

Erika Slezak is a smart business woman and she knows that the new One Life To Life can only survive with her aboard. I was never a regular viewer of One Live To Live, but caught some episodes along the way. I will watch this new One Life to Live and see how it develops.

That is great news. Viki is my favorite character on OLTL, and I have been waiting for Viki and Clint to get remarried. ES is my favorite actress, and the new OLTL should be a complete success as they are including most of the audience’s favorite actors. I cannot wait until the new shows come on my computer. ABC should regret cancelling OLTL as there are still so many passionate fans out there who have been waiting for the show’s return.

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.

Days of our Lives Returns To Production After Temporary Halt Amid COVID-19

UPDATED:  According to Deadline  the cast and crew of NBC’s Days of our Lives will actually be returning tomorrow, October 20th to begin taping ahead of schedule after a positive Covid-19 test shut production down originally scheduled for two weeks.

The outlet cited, “Following a thorough investigation including contact tracing, quarantines, testing, and a deep cleaning of the studio, the health and safety experts at Days of our Lives have determined that it was safe to return to production before the end of the two-week period. As a result, the show will be back on set tomorrow Oct 20.”

The word of the early return initially got out Monday, although at that time unconfirmed by the show, apparently, via a posting by Lauren Koslow on her Instagram account where she is pictured in a Kate Roberts outfit in her dressing room.

Koslow shared: “Stepping into Monday in alice + olivia black velvet,” She also tagged the post #dressingroomselfie and the words. “Stay strong.”

She also added a quote from poet Maya Angelou: “Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.”

So, happy to hear it seems like DAYS is back … once again? Comment below!
