WATCH: All My Children Reunion On Strahan & Sara

Photo: ABC

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.

I want all my children to come back to abc! They should have never cancelled it !

I am probably being over-sensitive, but I thought it was in poor taste that Strahan mentioned that his show now has “AMC’s” time slot. Does he not know this is still a sore spot with “AMC” and “OLTL” fans? But, I appreciate the show giving us a mini reunion. Since Cady was there, I would have loved to have seen her with Michael E. Knight.

Would have loved to see MEK too

Miss All My Children. Replace Strahan and get it back! So sad.

Pretty bad show!! Great seeing them all but it was like they were making fun of the show with those recreations. How many times did S\S say something about fans!?? ABC get the hint even from your ‘talent’ the fans want AMC back in the air!!

I too felt as if they were ‘mocking’ the show and I didn’t care for that aspect of it – they need to bring ALL MY CHILDREN back, plain and simple.

There is no reason why All My Children and One Life to Live are not on the air today!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for posting the clips. It was great to see those cast members and know they are busy.

ONE LIFE TO LIVE is all I can say, other than BRING MY SHOW BACK !

Miss my OLTL so much. Not the same watching GH. When I see Roger Howarth I think there’s Todd and when I see Michael Easton I naturally see McBain. Makes it hard to watch.

THAT’S the way Jack/Erica should have ended. Thank you Walt & Susan for caring for your fanbase since AMC writers did NOT. Loved seeing them together again..

some of the amc characters should pay GH a visit, especially Susan Lucci, in fact, the time now would be perfect with the reason health scare Susan had, Erica could be visiting Port Charles when she starts feeling not so good and is taken to GH were she’s having similar symptoms that Susan had, so she’s hospitalized and of course she comes out ok, but while recuperating she runs into Anna Devane, and meets other characters and some fun ensues. in fact even before Erica has her surgery she insist David Hayward operate on her, and guest who he would run into? his ex Anna Devane, come on now, do I have to keep going, GH does cameos and brief stints all the time, no reason why we can get some of this actors to guest star on the show, nobody is younger, and no body is planing a reboot anytime soon so lets not waste time and be creative, do what’s possible now instead of wishful dreaming of reboots ect…

I feel sad for AMC fans on one hand because it has to still sting that their show isn’t on where it should be. On the other hand, I think they’re lucky because they keep getting little reunion spots on various shows over the years. I wish it would happen for some of my favorite shows. I long for that. I long for a great big show that celebrates all the shows that have departed and those four that are still with us. One can dream.

Damn……this was great. Even so, it brought tears to my eyes. I really still miss this show.

The Talk also does this sometimes with the Proctor and Gamble shows. I’d love to know what the ratings are when they have these soap reunion shows.

If they can do a Brady Bunch reunion show and a Downton Abbey movie why can’t the soaps show Erica Kane and the Martins over a couple of days with the grand kids. We’d see Erica and Jack in their twilight years. Learn if Kendall and Zak stayed together. Watch JR mourn Adam. It would be so moving. I guess the networks don’t want to feed the appetite for soaps again.

Susan Lucci Reveals She Was Contacted to Gauge Interest in Becoming ‘The Golden Bachelorette’

All My Children icon and Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement honoree, Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane), apparently was being considered for the lead in the first-ever season of The Golden Bachelorette.

Making this all the more intriguing is Lucci admitted she really enjoyed The Golden Bachelor’s season and has become a fan and thus a part of ‘Bachelor Nation.’

Although former ‘Golden Bachelor’ contestant Joan Vassos was the ultimate pick by ABC and the producers of The Golden Bachelorette, Lucci told PEOPLE that the show reached out to her people.

Susan shared, “I believe that they contacted my publicist and it wasn’t for me.” She added, “I watched The Golden Bachelor, and I really enjoyed watching The Golden Bachelor. This is a new addiction for me.”

And a few years back. her assistant got Lucci hooked on The Bachelor, as she expressed on the dating series, “I was immediately engaged. I cared. I wanted to know more about these people.”

The outlet shared that they did reach out to ABC and Warner Bros. about potential interest in Susan. However, they did not respond. A source then told the publication that Lucci was not offered a role.

For Susan, finding a second chance at love is an interesting proposition; given that she had the most incredible and enduring 53-year marriage to her late husband and manager, Helmet Huber, who passed away at 84-years-old back in March of 2022.

So, what do you think of Susan being contacted to see if she was interested in becoming ABC’s ‘Golden Bachelorette’ for the senior dating-reality series? Comment below.
