OLTL Back In Production! Kassie DePaiva Tweets First Images With Erika Slezak & More!

Today is a historic day for soap operas and for the beloved and iconic series One Life to Live, which was taken from us way before its time when it aired its last episode on January 13, 2012, after ABC made the decision to cancel it while it was on a ratings and creative high.

Now today, production begins anew thanks to the efforts of Prospect Park and all those behind-the-scenes to bring Llanview back to life in their new Connecticut studios!

Kassie DePaiva (Blair) has been our “Johnny-on-the-spot” getting images of this exciting day and tweeting them out to all her followers and One Life fans.  The one that struck us the most is pictured here  – seeing six-time Daytime Emmy winner Erika Slezak (Viki) returning to the role she loves so much, along with DePaiva.

In addition, there are images of balloons, her on-screen son Andrew Trischitta (Jack) and the younger set:  Robert Gorrie (Matthew), Laura Harrier (Destiny), Kelley Missal (Dani), Cordin Bleu (Jeffrey), plus  one of new executive producer, Jennifer Pepperman!

What do you think of the images coming out of Llanview today?  Excited as we are?  Share your thoughts!

So happy that its back!! I also hope that our Canadian friends will get to watch it too. My cousin who lives in Canada told me that Canadians don’t have access to Hulu, and therefore won’t be able to see either OLTL, or AMC. In a way it won’t be a true celebration, until all fans on either side of the border get to see our beloved shows.

who says that bringing AMC and OLTL will be an uphill battle? it will only be and uphill battle if the soap fans don’t watch online and I don’t think that’s going to happen! Every person I know that has watched in the past says that they will be watching. Have missed these shows and looking forward to their return… can’t wait for April 29th to get here!!

This is great news! I am SOOO looking forward to One Life to Live! Love this show. It comes across as being a real family. I can’t wait to see Bo, Vicki, Cassie and the rest of the cast. I am not sure what the casting departmnent was thinking with the new Destiny but I will give the new actress a fair chance. I hope Prospect Park and GH can work together. I think this would be in the best interest of all of the soaps.

Nathalie Kelley Says She Is Not Returning To DYNASTY For Season 2

In a surprise admission during an interview with E Online, one of the core members of CW’s Dynasty reboot, Nathalie Kelley revealed she is not filming season 2 of the primetime sudser when it resumes filming next month.

Kelley plays Blake’s (Grant Show) wife, Cristal, who ended the season one cliffhanger in a precarious predicament after being shot by Claudia Blaisdel (Brianna Brown), while the Carrington mansion went up in flames, as well.

Kelley tells E! “I won’t be returning for Season 2.”  She went on to say as of the fate of Cristal:  ” Is it a coma? Is it death? … I actually don’t know. But I know that I’m not going to Atlanta in July, that I’m staying (in Los Angeles) … I’ve got my life back.”

Dynasty returns for its all-new season beginning on Friday, October 12th.

So, disappointed to hear there will be no Nathalie on season 2 of Dynasty?  How do you think they will write Cristal out of the story:  Coma … her body found will not be found … or is she truly dead?  Share your theories in the comment section below.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
