Excited, but concerned. No word on some pivotal characters. Erica, Tad, Joe Martin…Brooke, Adam, Dixie…

I believe the actors that are not coming back because of pure greed. The show will do fine without them & they will feel idiotic. Hopefully I’m wrong but that’s the only conclusion I can come up with why so many dedicated actors are back at OLTL.

Since I posted my original comment the last four on my list are now on board. I know Susan Lucci said scheduling, she loves Agnes and I believe wants to do it. But I am happy with who we have and look forward to seeing Pine Valley (and Llanview) again!

I agree, where are the old favorites, I worry this will be like General Hospital Nightshift, it was ok but lacked the appeal of the original

I LOVED Nightshift! Hoping Felix Dubois is related to Toussaint Dubois from Nightshift. I’d love to see Billy Dee and Epiphany again.

I’ll need to see more AMC vet casting announcements before I’ll believe it’ll be a success. I’m still uneasy how skimpy the cast list is compared to OLTL. I do have David and Cara and want to see their love/family story continued, that much I know! 🙂

Hooray! Can hardly wait this is so great. So many of my favorites back. It is unfortunate that a couple disgruntled actors and dueling Disney divisions have cast a pall over OLTL lately, because what Prospect Park is gearing up to achieve is really rather wonderful.

I am truly excited. I have been doing a lot of talking to Father Clarence over the past year and a half but hear no mention of him coming back. Sure hope he is a walk on for a few shows since he was the one to convince me that this was all possible. Just think, PP is the first to open this market for soaps. They are right there on top of the industry now and have millions of us following them. Don’t give up PP. We are here to back you. Ten years ago, nothing like this could… Read more »

I’m also concerned about the quality of the writing. It seems to be dictated on the actor “gets” they have. I’m wondering what kind of storyline they can tell on All My Children with such a disjointed cast. At least One Life to Live has a good core of characters.

I’m mildly hopeful for this reboot but I’m not happy about the cast members who went to GH being dragged back to what may only be a short lived experiment. I’m having a hard time getting my mind around a totally digital soap but it could be better than I think.

I’ll still believe this when I actually see it as I don’t trust Prospect Park after last year. Quite frankly, I’d be shocked (shocked!) if these so-called “reboots” last longer than a year, especially without a cable or syndicated TV outlet agreeing to pick them up and defray the costs. No matter what anyone here says, these soaps will have much lower production values and will almost certainly look nothing like they were when they were on ABC. They almost certainly will not survive on only internet advertising when the shows will still be fairly expensive to produce. It just… Read more »

Im just as skeptical as you are. But the reality is that the TV landscape is changing. I just started watching House of Cards on Netflix which is their first scripted series and its amazing. It did well enough to warrant a 2nd season. But I guess the difference is that I actually own a 3D/Internet TV so I have the luxury of watching these things on my tv. My concern is advertising. Just releasing press statements to the Soap Press wont be enough. They need to go big or go home. But this could also be an amazing time… Read more »

There is such a thing is Internet tv? Interesting. I have a flat screen HDTV but 3d gives hubby headaches so not going that root. Anyway first I hope soap fans get their wishes and I would never wish it not work out but….I don’t see it lasting long either. I just don’t see how they can pay actors let alone production etc on Internet ads etc….Also pp isn’t making friends with their recent actions with GH which makes me wonder how effective they will be at running these soaps. Anyway good luck to the fans.

@Kat Yeah the internet TV is under so many different names. Google TV, Smart TV, and whatever crazy name each brand has come up with for Wi-FI internet search TV’s. I cant lie, it cost me a pretty penny, but again I bought mine almost 2 years ago, so I def know the price has gone down. But I had to have it. The other thing Im not getting is everyone keeps saying they need to resolve the Tale of Two Todd’s but it seems everyone keeps forgetting Trevor St. John is NOT signing on for this. So whats the… Read more »

I feel OLTL will make it.. It has most of the core and original cast..
As for AMC, it weak.. IT will be whole lot of new everything..

It will be awesome to be able to see both soaps and cheer them both on !!
AND- we will be first to watch the first launching of TV like broadcasting to the internet..
sorta like being at Kitty Hawk with Wright Brothers LOL yah ..

I have been waiting for these shows to come back ever since they went off the air. I do not care that they will be on the internet. Very excited, can’t hardly wait. I have missed them ever since they went off the air on ABC. I do not watch any of the replacement shows. I do still watch General Hospital but if they take it off I will no longer watch anything on ABC in the daytime because all the other shows are boring.

I want to enjoy this. I want to loom forward to watching OLTL and AMC again but I can’t because of the fact that PP is strong -arming three OLTL actors. By taking away their livelihoods and banning them from working while this gets hammered out with ABC, PP is hurting the actors personally. That leaves a very bad taste in my mouth. Yes, ABC never should have cancelled OLTL but they did and GH kept Llanview alive. For many long time fans of both shows, like myself, that meant everything after OLTL went off the air on Friday the… Read more »

Preach on Gillian. Exactly my thoughts too. I love oltl but trying to force the issues with GH is really upsetting me. They treat these actors as if they are objects and they have families and things to take care of and pp is causing them to be in limbo. It’s just plain wrong.

I did some more research yesterday and read some more info about the initial PP deal. Apparently PP was most interested in OLTL/GH but ABC/Disney would only sell AMC/OLTL as a package deal. According to this, PP was little interested in AMC? I’m taking it with a grain of salt but it makes sense since AMC reboot seems to be a younger, different show. If true, it also means PP wants GH. If it fails, they get GH. The report on Daytime Dish (HNY) also states that the Disney arm wants keeps forcing ABC daytime back with PP to renegotiate.… Read more »

Hey Gillian just throwing my two cents in. I was at the Sag-Aftra office a few days ago and this is being talked about a lot. But you also have to look at this from PP point of view. They paid for these characters. So by the law they have a right to them. Their beef isnt with the Actors, its with ABC Daytime/Times Square Studios. They paid a licensing fee to ABC Daytime/Times Square Studios for All the characters on OLTL. Now the reality is that when PP’s first attempt didnt work, ABC Daytime/Times Square Studios then licensed those… Read more »

Please Confirm that OLTL & AMC will be on Hulu for free watching of these soaps. Because my friend E-mailed Hulu about OLTL & AMC being on their site & if it was definetely going to be free and this is the response she got from her hulu e-mail. It said : Hi Karen, Thanks for getting in touch with us! At this time, we do NOT have a partnership with One Life To Live and All My Children, so I’m afraid we’re not able to offer their content through Hulu or Hulu plus. I’m really sorry for any frustration… Read more »

I can’t afford to pay each month to watch the OLTL & AMC on Hulu after the free viewing at a limited time expires. Prospect Park has a comedy show on one of the
cable stations & it is called Royal Pains. Why didn’t they just put OLTL & AMC on that cable station that t.v. show is on. It would have made things a lot easier to watch & it would alway’s be FREE VIEWING all the time like it has been all these
years!!

OMG… this is music to my ears!!! I was really bummed out when they had pulled both of my favorite soaps off the air… and i had heard rumors that GH was next on the chopping block… so THANK YOU for bringing these two back. Looking forward to viewing both :))

I just hope it won’t be a hassle to watch them on line. And I hope it will be free for quite a while can’t afford to pay each month. I have enough bills to pay. I rather they
were on a cable channel on the tv than on line. I will watch the on line as long as it
is Free viewing. Not to happy about watching them on line again rather they were
on a cable channel on the t.v. I am happy their back but I like to view them in the
t.v. I am not computer savy!

I can’t wait to see my old friends. I have really missed them all. The story lines on AMC and OLTL had become so good. I hope to find out who was shot in the last scene on AMC. Also hopes that someone wil find out that fake Todd is still alive. Please keep Roger Hemsworth on OLTL. We don’t need them on GH..Thanks for giving our soaps another voice. I promise to bring ten viewers to see them.

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
