Details are slowly trickling in from Prospect Park, the new production company that will be handling production and distribution of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" once both series complete their runs on ABC.
According to Gina Tognoni during Saturday's "Girl's Night Out" event during the "One Life to Live" Fan Club Weekend, her character Kelly Cramer will be departing Llanview on Wednesday, August 24, when Kelly decides to return to London to be closer to her son Zane. Meanwhile, Tom Degnan's Joey Buchanan may not be far behind.
As we previously reported, after nearly a decade since departing "One Life to Live," Erin Torpey is returning to the fictional town of Llanview to shake things up with one of her former characters childhood lovers.
One of the first high-profile returns announced following news of the cancellation of "All My Children" on ABC this past April was that of Carol Burnett as Verla Grubbs. Soap Opera Network has learned Burnett will mark her re-entrance into Pine Valley society on Tuesday, September 6. The comedic legend started taping her scenes this past Friday, August 12. Burnett is expected to appear in several episodes of the soap.
On Friday, August 12, both Soap Opera Network and Soap Opera Digest reported SOAPnet's post "All My Children" schedule (Monday, September 26), which included the insertion of "Brothers & Sisters" re-runs and the shuffling of more than 80% of the schedule into different time periods. Other than "Days of our Lives" picking up a primetime spot (8:00 PM ET/PT), nothing caught reader attention more than the network announcing classic episodes of "All My Children," "General Hospital" and "One Life to Live." So what is a classic episode according to the network?
Jacob Young is returning to the soap that started his daytime career back in 1997. This fall the Daytime Emmy Award winner will reprise the role of Eric Forrester (John McCook) and Brooke Logan's (Katherine Kelly Lang) son, Rick Forrester, on the CBS daytime drama "The Bold and the Beautiful."
Earlier this month, Soap Opera Network reported that Sarah Michelle Gellar would be returning to "All My Children" for a cameo appearance before the Friday, September 23 finale, which is when the soap ends its 41-year run on ABC. Now we've learned when she'll first air!
