The All My Children hitmakers just keep a coming.  To honor the ending of the 40-year-old soap come this September, more fan favorite and legacy characters have been set to return to Pine Valley for one final curtain call.  Add to this list the sexy darling of the Santos family, Maria Santos, played by Eva LaRue!

TV Guide broke the news that: “La Rue, who currently stars in CBS’ CSI: Miami, will be back for several episodes beginning in July. And,  All My Children insiders say the show is fielding calls from many former cast members about potentially returning for its final days.” As soapers know already, Josh Duhamel will be back as Leo in August for one to two episodes.

Fan recall that  Dr. Maria Santos Grey  first turned up in Pine Valley in 1993, left in 1997 and returned again in 2002. Maria moved to California permanently in 2005 after she spun out of control following the death of her husband Edmund.

Although I’m loving all of the returns, the big return for the end of AMC should be David Canary as Adam Chandler!

Yes! I agree and I too am loving all the returns of the heavy hitters but what would the end be without Adam and Brook as well. I was really happy that Thorsten Kaye was coming back but now all the others great news. I hope their salaries bankrupt these dweebs at ABC-Disney, it infuriates me to the bone the remarks and cavalier attitude that this guy Frons has.

I can hardly wait to see every one of these characters!!! And I’m hoping we’ll see more … it wouldn’t be right without Adam and Brooke at the end. But it will be so bittersweet knowing we’re losing an American Classic after 41 short years. I just hope as each of the ABC soaps ends, ABC loses it’s daytime audience for that timeslot … and eventually, will lose a big chunk of it primetime audience as well. I know I am no longer watching anything EXCEPT the 3 soaps on ABC right already. Once they’re gone … bye bye ABC!… Read more »

See ya ABC and all your primetime shows as well. Once soaps are cancelled you will be gone from all soaps viewers. Soap viewers are the most Loyal Fans and believe me, you will go big time Downhill in ratings from all your shows. Nobody wants another stupid cooking show, or another talk show w/ Hollywood people glorifying thier life. If we want that we already have enough shows to watch. Don’t you know there is a cooking network, not to mention regular talk shows w/ cooking segmnets. What about recipies on internet and cookbooks. What a discusting idea for… Read more »

It just breaks my heart to see my two favorite soaps go off the air after all these years. I can’t imagine living without them everynite on soapnet. Now their won’t be anything to look forward to anymore. I keep hoping that I’ll read somewhere that some other network would pick it up, but so far it looks very dim.

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
