As it gears up to launch "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" on Monday, April 29, Hulu has created an exclusive Twitter account just for soap operas as well as a new Tumblr account to keep fans in the loop of all things Pine Valley and Llanview.

"Seeing my cast come in one-by-one.

The EP and her cast members comment on the show returning to production nearly six weeks after it was first announced by Prospect Park's The OnLine Network that the soap along with "One Life to Live" would be returning to the airwaves in more than one shape or form once again this spring (later revealed to be April 29, 2013 via Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes).
On April 14, 2011, ABC sent shock-waves throughout the daytime industry when it announced it had decided to cancel "All My Children" and "One Life to Live."
