It’s really that time folks, as One Life to Live prepares to film it’s final weeks of episodes for ABC. Some more Llanview returns for fans to expect now include:  Roscoe Born as evil incarnate Mitch Laurence, Jessica Tuck (Megan) and Susan Batten (Luna).  Just how they will be utilized is yet to be uncovered They join the already announced Catherine Hickland, Brian Kerwin, Tonya Walker and Fiona Hutchison who all in the coming weeks set to tape shows at OLTL studios in New York.

So who else would you still like to see return?  We all know that we want Judith Light as Karen, but there have been conflicting reports that she will not be returning, and some saying they spotted the name “Karen” on a script on Friday.  Clearly, it would be the one super-get if it could happen.

Would love to see Larry W. return. That was Vicki’s brother in law. That would be really nice to see him again. The Doctor.

Not thrilled about Mitch……he gets more rediculous every time he returns. I loved Megan and Luna. They were 2 of my all time faves. Megan’s death was a huge story at my college campus. Hundreds of people gathered in the Union and we all watched together. It was amazing.

I am very excited so far about some favorites coming back. I hope many others will also make an apprearance like Max, Jake, Wanda, Larry, Deliah, Rafe, Karen, Kevin, Cassie, and Herb. And please, please, please Robin Strasser as Dorian. It will not be the same to see OLTL leave the airwaves without this diva of all divas. Give her four scenes to do. She has devoted 30 years of exceptional work to this genre.

I want Marty and Patrick to return. OLTL really needs to fix the damage they did to Marty.

Brian

what about Oliver Fish ? And Stacey’s baby? Let’s get some info on them… You’d think Marcy would be visiting them., but most of all, Karen Wolak should come and visit Vicki.

Really? More dead people? I would love to see the Woleks and Craigs return but it seems silly now as for 20-plus years no one on the OLTL staff seemed to care. So lighten up on Judith Light everybody.

I have only read good things spoken about her time on OLTL from interviews with Judith Light. She doesn’t seem like a snob at all. I don’t think she is turning her back….I think it is more they don’t have a story for her. She hasn’t been mentioned in 20 years.

I want Dorian!!!! I want Max!!! I would also love to see Larry Wolek & Ed Hall come back. Most of all, I wish that Marco (RIP, Gerald Anthony) could come back.

Hey what about having Bobby Blue (Blair Underwood’s breakout roll) come back as a judge or something? Just a thought.

Joe

Seriously Prospect Park needs to sign Robin Strasser!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She wants to do it too!!!!! Also want MAX HOLDEN BACK!!!! HELLOOOOOO! He is a legacy character too! Thrilled about Tina, Gabrielle and Megan! Though! But why is it we never see Megan with her very close sister Sarah Gordon in heaven?!?!?! Make it happen Ron!

Heather

Would love to see Joe Lando. Since I have never had an opportunity to watch soap operas in the past, I would make a point of watching if Joe Lando returned.
He is such a talented actor and so handsome. Would be FANtastic.

If they’re going to bring Mitch Laurence back, then why not bring back one of the best villains in OLTL history….Carlo Hesser, especially since we have Tina and Cord back on the show. Would love to see them mix it up before the finale.

i got nothing…everyones said it one way or another

I an thrilled Mitch is coming back! He is and always will be the best villain in soap opera history! Having Mitch (Roscoe Born) on the show is a breath of fresh air. They seriously need to give Roscoe a four year contract. It’s sad that Roscoe only stay’s for three month stint’s.

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
