It has been three months since we've learned that "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" have been canceled and would no longer be seen weekday afternoons on the ABC Television Network or weeknights on SOAPnet. It has been a truly unique period for this industry that has seen fans rallying together to try and help save shows that have become part of their everyday lives. Whispers, rumors and reports were trickling in at a record pace, often times we would find our heads spinning. Weeding through the information that we received here at Soap Opera Network, we aimed to report what we felt had the most backing or we were able to verify through various other sources.

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" may be ending their four decades' long run on ABC in September and January respectively, however it won't be the end of the road for either of the long-running, iconic daytime drama series.

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — As we first reported last month, Jason Tam (Markko Rivera) left fans wondering if he might be returning to "One Life to Live" before the show wraps production in the fall following a response he made to a fan recently on his Twitter page. Now, the latest issue of ABC Soaps in Depth is reporting that the actor is indeed on his way back to Llanview. On June 1, Tam was asked by a fan if there "Is any chance that Markko and Langston will make a return to Llanview BEFORE 'OLTL' ends?!?," to which the actor tweeted "You bet!" However, don't expect Brittany Underwood (Langston Wilde) to be accompanying her former beau back to Llanview. According to Soap Opera Digest, Underwood was unable to return alongside Tam because of scheduling conflicts.
