Everyone loved All My Children’s Jenny Gardner played by then soap opera newcomer, Kim Delaney.  And after Kim left the world of soaps, she went on to a career on primetime television most notably on NYPD Blue as Diane Russell.

Well, in news this week, Delaney has signed on to reprise the character in the revival of the series in development over at ABC.  This is the role that Kin won a Primetime Emmy for her work back in 1997 for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.

According to TV Line, what we do know about the pilot; it will center on the son of Detective Sipowicz, who is working in the 15th squad and trying to earn his detective shield while investigating the murder of his father. However Emmy winner, Dennis Franz, who played the Sipowicz, will not be joining on to the reboot.

The pilot will be helmed by notable executive producers: Matt Olmstead (Chicago Fire), Nick Wootton (Scorpion), and Jesse Bochco (Murder in the First), who is the son of the late NYPD Blue co-creator, Steven Bochco.

Jesse Bochco, will direct the pilot, which is being considered for a potential fall season 2019 launch or possible next year midseason. NYPD Blue aired originally for a 12-year-run from 1993 to 2005 on ABC.

On her instagram account, Delaney wrote: “Diane Russell is back! So excited! Let’s go!”

I think I’ll do a wait and see on this one. I did like her on NYPD and for the short time she was on CSI Miami. I’m happy to see Bill Bochtrup has also signed on but my overall favourites were the ever unpopular David Caruso and the wonderful Dennis Franz.

As a fan of NYPD Blue, this discussion caught my eye and I am thrilled to learn about it! I thought I’d make my comments in reply to you, Celia, as I know we’ve been out of touch for a while — I’m the one with very sporadic visits… Glad to see that you were also a fan of this show! I did watch every episode. Like @GramS, I am disappointed that Dennis Franz won’t be a part of this. Same apparently goes for David Caruso. But I liked the entire cast, and I am hopeful to see many others returning…

But getting back to you, my Friend, so glad that you continue to be a bright light here! I hope that all is well with you and your loved ones, and I wish you all the best in 2019!

Hi, James,
Good to hear from you….I’ve missed all of you….I’ve missed our chats–life happens….Ive been subbing more oft than not—no school today, though!!
I can’t say I don’t enjoy it, because I do—I try to work around my daughter’s schedule ( pre-school).
She’ll be in school full-time come fall….so, I will, most likely, teach full-time again–
Agreed, my friend—-I’ve always loved Kim Delaney —-I remember watching in my dorm room —the care-free days, James, LOL.
I wish you the best 2019, as well, my friend.❤️

Thanks for your warm reply, Celia! 🙂

Regarding NYPD Blue, I hope to see unsung hero, Medavoy (Gordon Clapp), in this reboot. And Kim Delaney has always been a fan favorite.

So glad to hear that all is going well with you! And that you’re enjoying teaching. I also fondly remember “care-free days,” Celia, and I try to recapture them whenever I can, and I will try to stop by here on occasion, too. Again, best to you and your family! Take care, Friend!

I’m wondering what position Diane Russel will be playing. She should be the captain

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.
