Great news for Llanview fans!  While many have been commenting that all the actors thus far who have announced that they are participating in the upcoming Prospect Park reboots are from All My Children, well that ends tonight thanks to fan favorite Jerry verDorn!

The Daytime Emmy winner took to his Facebook page to announce he has signed on for the revival of One Life to Live! 

Jerry verDorn stated,  “Hello Everybody. One Life Lives.  And good things come to those who wait.  Or so it is said.  About an hour ago I agreed to be part of the OLTL revival and I’m thrilled to be involved in entertainment history as the show we love moves to other formats. The fans consistent drum beat of support played a large part in Prospect Park never giving up trying to find a solution. And today they announced it to the world.  With the cherry-on-the-top-news that Agnes Nixon has been hired as a consultant! For those who doubted, I don’t blame you as this has never been done before.  For those who never lost hope and never stopped writing and calling, well, good things come to those who wait.  Congratulations to you all. Welcome back to Llanview.  Love, Jerry verDorn.”

So soapers excited to see Jerry back in the saddle as Clint Buchanan?  Weigh-in on this exciting news!

Another HUGE get!!!! So important to get one of the Buchanan brothers on board! One down, 20 or so more to go.

This is so unbelievable! A year ago, it was all but dead and buried. And here we are, and there is a glorious light ahead. So, so proud of all this beautiful movement taking place in the right direction! THANK YOU Prospect Park!!!

This is getting more promising with each passing day, may it continue!!! I am glad to see Jerry aka Clint on board. Here is hoping his coming back will help lure Erika Slezak, Robert Woods and Hillary B Smith (although I believe she might be doing another online soap) back as well. I hope all of our beloved actors and actresses, who have not moved on to other shows or endeavors can all come back too, like Trevor St. John (Victor), Rex and Gigi, Roxy, Blair and her boys, Tea and her daughter, Shaun, Destiny and Mathew B, the hunky… Read more »

I’m hoping ME will head back to Llanview and Natalie & Liam 😉 Todd & Starr are working out nicely in Port Charles, so they can stay with brief pop-ins to visit Blair, Dorian, Vickie, etc.

Mr. Fairman, when you remove the R.I.P.s could you add “Pretty Little Liars” to your list? Other than GH and SOAPnet it is the ONLY ABC/D product I watch. It is an excellent drama featuring many soap actors. Thank you for your consideration.

All My Children

Mark Consuelos on the All My Children Primetime Reboot: “I Know They’re Going to Bring Back Some Fan Favorites”

On Friday, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) was a guest on the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, where he shared his excitement and some insight into the upcoming All My Children primetime reboot, Pine Valley, in development at ABC..

As previously reported, Mark and his wife Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) are two of the executive producers on the project.

Consuelos shared on the reboot:All My Children was such a big part of my life and my wife’s life. And you know, I met my wife there obviously, had kids, became a young man on that show, and we got the opportunity to reboot the primetime version and the idea was brought to us, and we’re so excited.  Of all the things that we’ve ever announced that we’re going to do, this is one of the biggest responses we’ve got from our fans. They’re so excited.  It’s a big piece of TV that’s been missing for such a long time, and we’re going to bring it back.”

When avid soap fan and The Talk co-host, Sheryl Underwood, posed a major question to Consuelos that has been on longtime All My Children fans minds, she got a solid response from him.

Sheryl was trying to get some tea on who might appear in the reboot, when she asked, “Is it going to be the Cortlandts and the Warners? Is it going to be everybody?” Consuelos then responded with: “I know they’re going to bring back some fan favorites, and it will take place in Pine Valley, and I’m really, really excited.”

You can watch a portion of Mark’s virtual visit on The Talk below.

Then let us know, which AMC characters do you want to see back and on the primetime series, Pine Valley?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

General Hospital

Lexi Ainsworth Teases Her Return to General Hospital

With her father Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) presumed dead (although viewers know he is very much alive with amnesia), it looks like Kristina is on her way back to Port Charles – which would be a welcome return to the role for Daytime Emmy winner Lexi Ainsworth.

Rumors began circulating on Inauguration day Wednesday, when Ainsworth shared a pic on her Instagram Story of her watching the ceremonies from a dressing room at Prospect Studios in Los Angeles, where GH is taped.

Later, after reports had surfaced on social media that Ainsworth might be returning to her signature role, the actress shared some of those on her Instagram Story as well, which was seen as her way of confirming she is back on the show.

Lexi has been recurring on General Hospital for the last several years, so there is no telling how long she will be on-screen this time.

While there has been no official confirmation from GH, chances are that if there is a funeral ahead for Sonny, Kristina of course would be there to mourn her father. Stay tuned.

So, excited that Lexi will be back on-air on GH? Comment below.
