Susan Lucci Joins Lifetime's "Army Wives" for Multi-Episode story Arc!

Breaking news this afternoon! Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) has signed on for her first television role post-All My Children!  The soap icon will be appearing in a multi-episode story arc of Lifetime’s Army Wives! Lucci will appear in at least two episodes and maybe even more for the sixth season of the series!

According to TV Line, “Lucci will play the wife of a retired general who gives Kim Delaney’s Claudia valuable advice on how to deal with a potential rival.”   Army Wives also gives soap fans an inside hook, as it will reunite Susan with her former AMC castmate Kim Delaney who played Jenny Gardner.

Now with that being said, does this mean Susan has moved on from life in Pine Valley, and is not reconsidering an offer from Prospect Park to join AMC in some capacity when it moves online next year? Or, perhaps, it’s just a great fun choice role that came up in the interim … and that Susan is looking at this point in her career to take on other roles?  Only time will tell, but it will be great to see Susan back on our television screens once again.

While it is great for Susan to have a new temporary role, it will be a huge disappointment if she does not remain in the role of Erica Kane. Disappointing because since April 15, 2010, every AMC fan fought to have this soap remain in some way, shape or form. Susan praised the fans in their fight. I am hoping she will remain faithful to her fans and sign up for the online trip. I am still missing All My Children very much. Having hopes of its return come January.

I’m thinking it’s cool that La Lucci is playing a nice change-of-pace role for the time being! 🙂

That is fantastic news! I love Army Wives and Ms Lucci will be a welcome addition to the cast. “Erica Kane gives Jenny Nelson some advice!”

I just wish that we could get more news on the cast of AMC…..it’s seems like the news is few and far between. I agree with Nancy’s statement….the fans have fought really hard to keep AMC alive in one form or another, and I really hope the cast is considering moving along with AMC once it goes online. It would be devastating to have AMC return in January, only to find that the show is left with a skeleton cast….it would be hard to accept a version of the show that lacks so many familiar faces. Plus, I’m concerned that… Read more »

It doesn’t look too promising for AMC to make the move. Lots of actors from OLTL have already signed up but only a few from AMC.

I imagine Susan Lucci and Prospect Park will come to some agreement, don’t you? Erica Kane is Lucci’s legacy and she will want to protect that. Even if Erica is in the “new” Pine Valley on a limited basis or for short-term periods (as Anthony Geary does on GH), everyone wins. I am hoping for a fresh start for AMC 2.0. I fear some of the lamer stories are the ones that will be kept on. I am so over resurrections and plots that truly strain credulity. AMC has strayed in the last years here and that is part of… Read more »

the reason abc felt compelled to cast away amc & oltl because when disney bought abc their ultimate goal was to get rid of day time soaps – to be sure gh will be next

Good for Susan! She should take every job she can before AMC starts again. I am hopeful she will go online with them. I have heard from a reliable source that Prospect Park is in intense negotiations right now with All My Children cast & crew. While we may not hear anything, it is happening! Yay!

Three-Time Daytime Emmy Winner, Cady McClain, Reveals She’s ‘Back On Set’ But On Which Show?

After her Instagram post earlier this week, fans of Cady McClain have been attempting to dissect her cryptic tease of a message. McClain, a three-time Daytime Emmy winner, shared the good news with fans that she is ‘back to work’, except she didn’t share which show or project she is working on … just yet!

In her post, McClain teased: “Back on set! Fun to be working again on such a terrific show! Can’t wait to be able to share the news with you all soon! Meantime, hoping you are all taking good care of yourselves. Sending hugs!! ”

Now, it could be Cady is working on a primetime show, not a daytime show, but we shall see.

She has previously appeared on The Young and the Restless and Days of our Lives of the four remaining daytime soaps.  On Y&R she played Kelly Andrews, and on DAYS, Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  And, as viewers of the NBC soap saw this week, Jennifer (in a short appearance by Melissa Reeves) returned to Salem with Jack (Matthew Ashford), only to tie-up loose ends over the holidays and exit the show.

Since DAYS still tapes months ahead, could McClain be returning there, or might she pop up on GH and B&B? The character of Kelly was killed-off of Y&R back in 2015.

Previously, Cady became soap-famous for her roles as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children and Rosanna Cabot on As the World Turns.

Share your thoughts on which show you hope Cady is working on, whether, primetime, daytime, or a streaming series, in the comment section below.

On Thursday, the full cast was announced for the highly-anticipated Yellowstone prequel that will bow on Paramount+ beginning on December 19th.

The Taylor Sheridan drama tells the tale of the Dutton family as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America.

In 1883, look for Nelsen to take on the role of Ennis, a young, handsome cowboy who agrees to help escort a group of inexperienced men, women and children north to find a home.

The series also stars: Billy Bob Thornton, Faith Hill, Gratiela Brancusi, Sam Elliott, Stephanie Nur, and Tim McGraw to name but a few.
