Investigation Discovery President Henry Schleiff stated in a press release about the pick up renewal for Deadly Affairs : “Our first foray into the nighttime soap genre with Deadly Affairs brought the perfect combination of intriguing storytelling and guilty pleasure that enticed a passionate fan base,” said Henry Schleiff, president and general manager of Investigation Discovery. “We are thrilled to continue our affair with Susan Lucci and Sirens Media for the second season of Deadly Affairs and further tempt our viewers with more stories that prove real life is often stranger than fiction.”

Episodes feature stories interlaced with expert commentary from local authorities and true-crime experts, as well as first-person accounts from friends and family of the victims.   You can watch Deadly Affairs on Saturday Night at 10PM EST on Investigation Discovery.

I love Susan Lucci and miss AMC terribly. And OLTL as well. I don’t like Deadly Affairs. All the stories presented have already been told repeatedly on several other ID shows and Snapped and Dateline, etc.

Lucci, you need to be back on soaps. It’s the genre that made you, you are a NAME in the mainstream and you owe it to your peers to come back to daytime and fight the good fight for the few remaining dramas we have left. May I suggest the role of Julia Newman on Y&R, Victor’s first wife? Come on Susan, it’s time to come home to soaps.

I saw an ep and wasn’t impressed. I think it would be better with just a voice over.

She needs another show where she is more than the hostess. I hope Devious Maids will showcase her enough or what about a sitcom. It would be nice if she could maybe finish off the AMC story on say GH and then do a new character on Y and R or something.

ABC if you are listening I know money and pragmatics. But you could start with the premise of the Erica Kane movie that was part of the cliff hanger. The scene would open with a funeral and it is Erica. That way you do not have to worry about the old sets. Jack, bianca, Kendall and Pine Valley is mourning; – those missing can be partially explained they were all killed in a shoot out by JR. The body and funeral is for Erica. AFter saying some poignant words by Jack and her family they go to lay her to rest at the buriel sight. When rising out of the Ashes is Erica Kane. She is alive and thus her movie. It was the doppleganger Jane who had broken out of prison with several other people. She was mad she took the rap for stabbing David and in jail. She took Erica’s place. You can even have a dying scene with Erica (Jane) trying to tell Jack who declares his love for his dying “Erica”. They could then cut to a wedding of Jack and Erica to tie up loose ends; it could be a “fundraiser” to allow old AMC stars to return to the wedding even those who don’t know Erica well as it is a fundraiser. ABC could have some competition for a wedding gown to save money for an upcoming desinger they could say size 2 or 0 hinting it could be Brooke or if that is too far fetched Kelly Ripa’s Hailey renewing vows to Mateo. They could hold suspense by having three dresses with somehting happening to the first two til the winning design is shown on Erica as she marries Jack and then Dr. Martin closes the “book” for ever.

WATCH: All My Children Reunion On Strahan & Sara

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s Strahan & Sara, the show welcomed several stars of the beloved All My Children for a reunion, of sorts. Joining hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines were Susan Lucci (Erica), Walt Willey (Jack), Cady McClain (Dixie), Jacob Young (JR) and Jill Larson (Opal).

While it was wonderful to see the stars from Pine Valley again, it was also a painful reminder that this network, ABC, canceled the show, and had put in its place – The Chew, and now Strahan & Sara – since canning the series.   In fact, as you will see on the clips below, many of the crew who work on this talk show were once the crew for All My Children.

During the segment, Susan Lucci was tested to see if she remembered all of Erica Kane’s wedded names.  Later, Walt Willey and Susan re-created the final scene of the ABC version of All My Children between Erica and Jack, where Jack walks out on her.  However, this time, they have Jack changing his mind and coming back to Erica and sealing their relationship with a kiss – a moment of closure that never happened (since the show moved to online via Prospect Park).

In addition, Cady McClain and Jacob Young re-created the infamous Dixie “dying from eating poison pancakes” scene, as JR watches his mother die, only this time she lives.

It’s always great to see these veteran performers, but Strahan & Sara is trying to capture the soap viewers to put eyeballs on their show by bringing in talent from the show that sadly and wrongly went off the air.

Watch the clips below from the All My Children reunion below.  Then, let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below.
