All My Children and One Life to Live Soap Fans Begin New Crusade to Bring Back Classic Shows

All My Children and One Life to Live Soap Fans Begin New Crusade to Bring Back Classic Shows

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!

    I truly believed then and still do now that ABC made a huge mistake with the cancellations,,, I also believe that the fans will not give up and do what we gotta do to be heard,, afterall, arent we the ones that are supposed to matter,, us the viewers,, we want to watch them and have proven that we will watch them where ever they are,,, and look at General Hospital now,, was once in danger of cancellation,, wow if that happened there would surely be an uprising and abc will loose even more viewers than it already has,, the numbers dont lie,,,, ABC if you were smart, you would put One life to live and all my children back where they belong, if not them alone, somehow combine the two,,,, make a new soap with the same people from both,, IT WILL WORK!!!!

    I cannot understand why ABC cannot figure out something that is staring them in the face. They are in the gutter thanks to their stupid idiotic decisions. It makes sense that they would bring back their money shows, AMC and OLTL. Ever since their cancellation, the entire network is bad. Wake up ABC,

    We soap fans are a loyal and vocal bunch. It would benefit ABC greatly to reverse the decision to cancel these two shows and give the fans what they want. There is no show out there that will succeed in those time slots except our beloved OLTL & AMC.

    Please let these HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE shows go away forever. Take a hint, there’s a reason they always get cancelled

  • thebutcher

    What are you all 60+? No one under the age of 60 watches that shit. Yup, let’s boycott abc because they cancelled our shitty soaps, waaaa waaaaa. This is giving me such a great laugh

    “Couric’s daytime talk show is in its second and almost certainly final season on ABC. She will complete the season and sources at Disney-ABC insist that a decision about the future of ‘Katie’ will not be made until sometime in December after executives get a look at the November sweeps ratings.”
    This is a direct quote from a story that broke today in the Hollywood Reporter.
    So before some network nitwit cooks up another talk show we need to reclaim that hour on ABC daytime that belongs to us

    Would someone please forward all of these wonderful comments to someone at ABC who is in a position to do something about this. Thanks.
