Last week it was indirectly confirmed that both All My Children and One Life to Live had been indefinitely shelved once again. Both shows were originally yanked from network television back in 2011 after ABC decided that the soaps just weren’t selling any more and that it was time to try alternate daytime programming. Immediately Prospect Park jumped into action with a plan to revive both shows via the internet and in April of this year The Online Network brought back rebooted versions of OLTL and AMC.
The ride for both shows was super bumpy. ABC loaned core characters to Prospect Park with the idea that they could borrow them back to allow them to cross over onto the one remaining network soap, General Hospital. It was a great idea until ABC started killing off characters during those crossover visits! Needless to say, Prospect Park filed a lawsuit and within a few weeks both shows were on hiatus. OLTL has been iced since August and while AMC was supposed to head back into production twice inn October it never happened.
In early November cast and crew of both shows were told that the shows are done. There is a slight crack in the door for a possibility of reviving the beloved shows and according to the Dec. 2nd print edition of GLOBE Magazine that’s all some soap fans need. The crusade to save both AMC and OLTL has once again via all kinds of internet petitions and email campaigns. The fans believe that since it worked once before there is a slight chance that their voices will make a difference again. Do you think that these shows will ever see the light of day again or is this the last call for both? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
