OK so what is up with the possibility of David Canary and Jennifer Bassey joining the Prospect Park’s All My Children?  Will Stuart and Marion and of course, Adam, be part of the canvas?

Well in a tweet a few hours ago from fan favorite Jennifer Bassey (Marion Colby Chandler) looks like something IS on the horizon when she stated: “News. there will be some wonderful surprises in the next few months on AMC.  That’s all I can say right now. Sworn to secrecy. xxxx J”

This came on the heels of some prior tweets in which Bassey originally revealed that she and Marion were not coming back to Pine Valley, and that was then followed with a new tweet saying she was indeed meeting with the the new producer of AMC to find out what is going on!

So would you be happy to see Marion back in Pine Valley?  Do you think David Canary could be dropping in too?  Let us know your thoughts!

I would love to see Jennifer Bassey, but would be even happier if David Canary returned. IMO he would be the biggest asset to the canvas!

Well, I would have to add Michael E. Knight would be up there with David Canary on my “must-have” list. Can’t forget Tad. He’s been my favorite since I started watching AMC.

At the end. The Chandlers and the Martins had but 2 or so left to carry on..
The core families were on the endangered species list ..
I wonder if and how they could be rebuilt..

Marian, Adam, Stuart, Dixie, and Tad all need to come back to AMC!

Yes, but don’t bring back Jamie Luner as Liza!!!! Please try and bring back the one and only Marcy Walker. She is the one and only Liza in my book. And the chemistry that she had with Tad, Dixie, Marion and Adam was unbeatable.

Yeah but it seems Marcy is retired from acting, she’s big into her religion, I believe Christian. Maybe a recast Liza would help. People have mentioned Beth Chamberlain that played Beth on Guiding Light and I think she could be good. She definitely has the chops.

You know Blake, they should have given that role to Beth Ehlers when she came on AMC….she had good chemistry with Tad, but they blew her storyline to pieces and wasted her talent. And I’m from the school that on some characters, just don’t recast because it won’t work. Liza was played to a T by Marcy, so I just don’t think they should recast it.

The show would be boring without David and Stuart. Hope they bring him back, if they do, then I might think of watching again. And don’t forget Brook.

I did not think that David Canary wanted to return ~ but then again what would Pine Valley be without Adam Chandler – but we have to realize that these are NEW shows, a new inception of AMC – they will be introducing new characters I’m sure and some fans will like it and some may not – the soaps are being launched into unchartered waters and just how they will float is anybody’s guess (how’s that for poetry) ~

I hope we get to watch Jennifer Bassey…. Marion is GOLD.

At the “ending” of AMC….. it was the scenes with Marion and Stewart (coming back to life) that had me sobbing…. my favorite “ending” off…..

I’d like to salute and Commemorate the superlative…. ubber talent… Marcy Walker…. Liza….. Mother and Daughter ran with the gamut of emotions…. They transcended.

Marion and Stewarts’ loving relationship beamed….

I believe that means that David Canary will be on board. Julia Barr is rumored to be returning also, so with both of his leading ladies on board – he can’t be far behind. Also noticed we haven’t heard from Michael Knight or Susan Lucci yet.

I do understand this is a reboot and not all characters will be returned…but to start, you really must have Tad and Erica..

Donna Lawson

David Canary is just the best……..It won’t be the same if he doesn’t return. I love Tad……he needs to be with a woman that will love like he does. Hope Erica can get out of the contract she has and also that Kendall and Ryan will return.

I am sick and tired of cooking shows & eating shows like ‘The Taste”. Give me a break with that one. Yes all these cooking shows should be directed to the Food Network where they belong. Never watched one ever and never will. They
don’t interest me in the least. I rather go to my cooking book not these cooking
shows!

Eva LaRue Reveals COVID-19 Diagnosis

During former All My Children, B&B and GH star, Jacob Young’s podcast, Real Conversations with Jacob Young, he welcomed his good friend and former Pine Valley cast mate, Eva LaRue (Ex-Maria, AMC, and Celeste, Y&R).

At the very top of the episode, LaRue revealed she and her daughter Kaya tested positive for Covid-19.  She shared, “We thought we had dodged a bullet, but sure enough, on New Year’s Eve, we both tested positive.”

“Oddly enough,” she goes on to say, “I really feel like we’ve been so sick of being scared to death of the invisible monster underneath the bed all last year, always looking over our shoulders.”  Eva added, “Nobody knows which one they are. Are they someone who’s going to survive it or succumb to it? Or have residual effects? All we can do is pray for the best.”

 

However, LaRue has been trying alternative methods of helping her with Covid-19 via IV treatments.  “I’ve got this amazing integrative doctor who I’ve been working with for a long time, and I know a lot of people are like, ‘No, we only do Western medicine,’ and that’s fine, I love Western medicine… but integrated medicine and Western medicine have to go hand in hand, in my opinion. Because, I just feel like, we need to open our minds to what is new and what is out there.”   So because of that, Eva has chosen to receive these treatments to hopefully starve off any long term effects of Covid.

In addition, Eva told Young she has hopes for the new primetime All My Children reboot that is in the works:  “I have my fingers crossed that they’ll be doing something with this new Pine Valley show.”   Remember, the Santos family and the Kanes are said to be the epicenter of the revival, so perhaps LaRue will be a guest-star on it, since she is also close friends with two of the EP’s, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC)!

Send your well-wishes to Eva and her daughter, Kaya and let us know would you love to see LaRue on the ‘Pine Valley’ primetime reboot?  Comment below.

All My Children Primetime Reboot “Pine Valley” in the Works at ABC from Kelly Ripa & Mark Consuelos and Andrew Stearn

Huge news that could bring back a new updated version of daytime’s All My Children to primetime!

ABC is eyeing a revival of Agnes Nixon’s long-running beloved series that ran for 41 years on the network and then saw an online reboot from Prospect Park that lasted only one season.

According to Deadline, former AMC stars Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo) will executive produce along with Andrew Stearn and Agnes Nixon’s son, Robert Nixon.

 

The series is currently in the early stages of development, but what has been revealed is: the reboot will be written/executive produced by Leo Richardson (Katy Keene, Star), and it will center on a young journalist with a secret agenda who comes to expose the dark and murderous history of a town named Pine Valley only to become entangled in a feud between the Kane and Santos families. The series explores all the secrets that come with the Kane and Santos family names.

In the new incarnation, Pine Valley, will feature a new generation of characters and some old favorites.  As of this moment, no original cast members have deals, but the plan would be to have them make appearances, plus Ripa and Consuelos could also make a cameo.  Of course, many are already pondering if Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) might actually be a mainstay on the new primetime series; since the Kanes are one of the core families in the reboot.

Pine Valley plans to continue the original series’ tradition of tackling difficult social issues of our time and being inclusive, which the show was known for under the iconic Agnes Nixon’s storytelling.

Of note is that Stearn is also a lifelong fan of AMC and has been the driving force behind the reboot.  In fact when he was deciding between ABC Signature and one other studio for an overall deal, he chose ABC Signature because it was going to allow him to pursue his dream of rebooting All My Children.  It was then he started tracking down the rights to the soap.  As soap fans know, the rights to AMC reverted back to ABC after Prospect Park’s online version fell apart.

Later, after meeting with a number of writers to helm Pine Valley, Stearn went with Richardson, who had worked on the British soap EastEnders in his native Britain. Stearn also got on board the estate of Agnes Nixon, with son Robert Nixon joining the project as an executive producer.

So what do you think of “Pine Valley”, the All My Children primetime reboot being in development?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
