All My Children

Daytime soap opera airing on Weekdays on ABC. Weeknights on SOAPnet.

Susan Lucci portrayed the iconic role of Erica Kane on ABC's "All My Children" for more than 41 years. Sadly, the character would last be seen on September 23, 2011, when a shot rang out during an event that brought Pine Valley's most prominent citizens together. Despite Prospect Park bringing back the series for a short-lived online iteration in 2013, Lucci was unfortunately not part of the cast. Currently pulling double duty as host of the Investigation Discovery series, "Deadly Affairs," and starring in Lifetime's "Devious Maids," Lucci recently told Soap Opera Network, during an Investigation Discovery/Glamour Magazine event honoring actresses Rosario Dawson, Marcia Gay Harden, Tamara Taylor and Stephanie March, that she remains proud of her daytime run as Erica Kane and that's she's having a great time with where her career has taken her since.

There were a lot of ghosts and ghouls running around last week for Halloween, but they weren’t the only blasts from the pasts as of late. Several classic television shows have been given second lives, including “Veronica Mars,” “Family Guy,” “The Comeback” and "Twin Peaks" (the latter of which you can read more about here), making it all the rage in Hollywood at the moment. But which resurrected shows have proven to be the best back-from-the-dead successes? You can decide!

Hot on the heels of the news that big names like Rachel McAdams, Colin Farrel and Vince Vaughn will be starring in season 2 of HBO’s hit series, “True Detective,” comes word that two former soap beauties will also be a part of the cast: Former “All My Children” stars Abigail Spencer (ex-Becca Tyree) and Levin Rambin (ex-Lily Montgomery!)

On Tuesday, December 2, former "All My Children" stars Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane) and Walt Willey (ex-Jackson Montgomery) are set to reunite as part of a "Soap Opera Showdown" segment of NBCUniversal's syndicated daytime talker, "The Meredith Vieira Show." The episode finds Willey surprising Lucci during her showdown with host Meredith Vieira.

Something wicked this way comes: “The Taking of Deborah Logan,” a horror flick starring “All My Children’s” Jill Larson (ex-Opal Cortlandt)! And with Halloween creeping closer, there’s no better time to delve deep into the devilishly delightful (or rather, frightful) details of the film, which is already being heralded as an occult classic. Soap Opera Network caught up with Larson to the get the behind-the-scenes scoop, so read on for the scary details — if you dare!

POP’s “Queens of Drama” is rolling out the red carpet and delivering exactly what the show’s title implies: In addition to the list of popular soap stars already attached to the reality show, “Dynasty” legend Joan Collins will also be a part of the new show!

As previously reported, soap stars Lindsay Hartley (“All My Children,” “Days of Our Lives,” “Passions“), Crystal Hunt (“Guiding Light,” “One Life to Live”), Vanessa Marcil (“Beverly Hills, 90210,” “General Hospital”), Chrystee Pharris (“Passions,” “General Hospital”) and Hunter Tylo (“The Bold and The Beautiful”) have signed on for POP's newest reality series, "Queens of Drama," where the ladies will work together to produce a pilot for a new serialized primetime drama series. As the poster above warns, today, October 28, marks the beginning of production for show. Donna Mills (“General Hospital,” “Knots Landing,” “Melrose Place”) will also be taking part with special appearances.

As we previously reported, “The Price Is Right” recently launched a nationwide male model search, and all of the excitement has culminated into a web series in which America can view and later vote on the final contestants hoping to follow in the footsteps of former model Robert Scott Wilson (Ben Rogers, “Days of our Lives;” ex-Pete Cortlandt, “All My Children”). Hundreds of young men auditioned with the dream of winning the week-long modeling contract with the game show, but only 30 made it to Round One of the web series — which aired its first episode today!

Chrishell Stause is concluding her run on NBC's "Days of our Lives" as Jordan Ridgeway, it was announced today by the actress herself on Twitter. "Sadly I have wrapped up my time over at @nbcdays. It's been an amazing journey & the best is yet to come for Jordan," she wrote.

With a slew of soap weddings under her belt, a run at playing “crazy” and nearly a decade of daytime experience between “The Young and the Restless” and “All My Children,” a back-from-the-dead storyline is no big thang for “Y&R’s” Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea Lawson). Except for when the back-from-the-dead character happens to be her alter ego’s kid-killing husband, and that same guy’s real-life recast happens to be one of the most talked about soap events of the year! So just how is Egan taking in all of the madness surrounding Adam’s big return from the “dead,” including the fact that the character is now being played by Justin Hartley? Soap Opera Network caught up with the actress to find out!
