As many know yesterday was the first day of production for Prospect Park’s and The Online Network’s rebooted version of One Life to Live.  To celebrate fans from Soap Fans United traveled to One Life’s new Connecticut studios to welcome the cast back and to show their love and support!

Erika Slezak (Viki), Melissa Archer (Natalie), Cordin Bleu (Jeffrey), Kelley Missal (Dani), Kassie DePaiva (Blair), Robert Gorrie (Matthew) and Laura Harrier (Destiny) gave the fans who braved the cold weather some donuts and coffee with some lovin’ care! OLTL head writers, Susie Bedsow Horgan and Thom Racina also said “Hello” to the fans in attendance.

Carrying balloons, roses and banners/signs, to welcome their favorite cast members back that they have wished to see once again so much, but they also met some of the newbies to Llanview too!  The fans were thrilled and some (as we would all be) emotional chatted and took pictures with the actors during their short break from shooting.

Check out this video from the rally after the jump!  Then, let us know what you thought about the show of support from both sides – the fans and the stars!

I am thrilled that OLTL is returning. All fans need to watch and support the online format because if it doesn’t work out, it will truly be the end of Llanview.

We were not even allowed to go to the front door of the building – so tours were out! Trust me, we all would’ve gone! 🙂

Most likely no set tour for now because they dont want fans to know too much at the moment but it could happen later for some of you. I envy how lucky you got to be this close but i did once got to meet in person the lovely Jill Larson from AMC and Micheal Bruno( i think thats his name) who once appeared on the same show. Had they given me a cup of hot cocoa id had them autographed the cup, thats if i had known and brought a marker to write with, or at least saved it. Did u save the cup?

He’s onlyvthere for four weeks then returns to GH. This video is enough to bring tears to my eyes. After spending three decades with these characters, they feel like family and I’ve missed them so much. I just wish we had word on Michael Easton’s fate as well as Kristen Alderson. I have so much respect for these actors and want the best for them.

The whole video was so nice. Thanks to the fans that were able to be out there to express what so many of us feel to the actors of OLTL. And Thank You to the actors who brought out coffee and doughnuts (?) and posed for pictures. It was very sweet of them to take the time to do that.

Now, tell me, what night time show has that kind of interaction between actors and fans? None, I bet. Daytime fans are phenominal!

During all the effort put in by our group (Soap Fans United) and my multiple trips to Stamford to secure permits, etc. (all the Stamford officials were amazingly helpful and congenial) I would never have dared dreamed that we would be received and honored by the cast, writers and production team as we were on 3/18! And the privilege of meeting Erika Slezak…simply beyond belief!

They should try to get Ellen Holly, if she would do it, make guest appearances as Destinys mother/grandmother on OLTL. I Know she played Carla but that was long ago, and it wouldnt be no different than Francescs James returning to AMC as a different character. It would be like a nod to the shows original beginnings.

Does anyone know where I could download the mp3 of Kelley Missal (Dani) “Everything I ever learned”
Omg I’d be so happy if someone could tell me

This is why we love OLTL. The fans just have to be supportive and make ABC see the big mistake they made in taking this show off the air. I really believe this is going to be a hit. Will be watching everyday that it is on. If Michael Easton doesn’t return perhaps John McBain can be re-cast. Just a thought.

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.
