(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — “All My Children” star officially announces his retirement.

Confirming what numerous internet publications, including Soap Opera Network, have been reporting for some time, ABC Daytime has announced through SOAPnet that David Canary, 71, is retiring from “All My Children” this March after giving audiences twenty-seven years of wonderful performances as Adam and Stuart Chandler.

The talented actor had these parting words for his many disappointed fans: “My career on All My Children has given me more than words could ever convey both professionally and personally. I have cherished each and every moment. I would like to thank all the fans who have tuned in throughout the years. Their love and support has meant the world to me. I truly feel that I will leave the show in great hands. The viewers will be happy with how Adam departs the canvas and I know that leaving JR (Jacob Young) as head of the Chandler household will continue to provide the show with many great stories to come.”

Although Canary will finish taping in March, expect to see Adam Chandler air through April of 2010. ABC is still keeping specific details of the exit mum, but it appears that SON’s initial speculation that Brooke’s return was designed to usher Adam’s exit is correct. SOAPnet tells the audience to “expect to see a scandalous end to his marriage with Annie (Melissa Claire Egan) and a reunion with an ex-wife.”

In news that may ease some of the sting from the loss of this powerful actor and character for the soap and its many fans, Canary assures that “this is not the last you’ve seen of Adam Chandler. I will be back to check up on the Chandler Clan.” Before his scheduled departure, look for Canary to bring back the deceased Chandler brother, Stuart, for some poignant scenes this March.

“All My Children” airs Weekdays on ABC. Weeknights on SOAPnet. Check local listings. “AMC” now also airs online at ABC.com and can be accessed 24/7.

    (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Sean Kanan has taken to his Twitter page to address rumors of his departure from CBS’ “The Young and the Restless.”

    On Friday, July 10, 2009, Sean Kanan’s “Deacon Sharpe” landed in Genoa City and “The Young and the Restless,” after being MIA from Beverly Hills and “The Bold and the Beautiful” for some time. His character got back into action with his favorite femme fatale Amber Moore (Adrienne Frantz), who is currently involved with Daniel Romalotti (Michael Graziadei). Recently, the character was hauled off to jail on charges of kidnapping. Since then, fans have been wondering when their favorite bad boy from the other side of the tracks would be returning to the soap. Kanan addresses those questions and answered a few more via multiple Tweets on his Twitter page.

    “There has been lots of rumor and speculation about my departure from Y/R so here is the truth straight from my me,” said Kanan. “I was always on reoccurring status. I was not fired and am sick of hearing that I was. I spoke the words that were given to me. The last script I received sent me off to jail. I am thankful for my time on the show and am actively working outside of daytime. I have not been contacted by Y/R regarding my return. It seems that I will also not be returning to B&B any time in the near future,” he continued. “Now you know as much as I do. I hope that we can put an end to the rumor factory. I profoundly appreciate your support.”

    “The Young and the Restless” airs Weekdays on CBS. Weeknights on SOAPnet.

      DePaiva Sings Familiar Tune

      Tuesday, February 16, 2010 12:30 AM ET | By Scotty Gore

      (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Was it just a nod to history or a hint of things to come?

      Monday’s (February 15th) episode of “One Life to Live” opened with Llanview’s songstress Blair Cramer (Kassie DePaiva) singing what many fans consider the most popular of the soap’s seven different opening sequences from its more than four decade history.

      The song, originally performed by Paebo Bryson, was used as as part of “One Life’s” ‘Tour of Llanview’ opening and closing themes from 1986-92, following an appearance by the musician on the show (in which he performed the theme during a fashion show).

      But was it just an attempt by the writing staff to give long-time viewers a moment to re-visit the past, or was it a subtle clue that an overhaul of “One Life to Live’s” present opening sequence may be in the works? That remains to be seen, however fellow ABC sudser “General Hospital” is set to debut a new opening on February 23rd, and there have been grumblings for some time that “All My Children” may receive an updated opening sometime in the near future as well. Either way, it offered a nice trip down memory lane.

      “Here’s what you do when you don’t find the rainbow’s end, This time… Here’s where you go when it looks like the rain won’t end, Don’t cry… I’ll give you tomorrow, Let me be the one you share it with, And each day that follows, ‘Cause we only have ‘ONE LIFE TO LIVE!’”

      Kassie DePaiva as Blair Cramer singing the popular Paebo Bryson opening theme (the first 30 seconds of the clip):

      And the original Paebo Bryson ‘Tour of Llanview’ opening for “OLTL”:
