What do you think? Are you glad to hear that the soaps are returning online? Do you have any apprehensions about how the revivals will be handled?
thanks for the return of all my children/one life to live
It would be awesome if, SoapNet was able to show the episodes too.
I wonder what’s going to happen with all the OLTL characters that went to GH. Didn’t they kill Hope & Cole off? So would Starr be without both of them when OLTL starts….
I’m still wondering who was shot on the AMC finale….hopefully we will find out soon.
I did want to see ALL MY CHILDREN, until I started watching very old reruns of

I tried so hard to watch… Read more »
Will be very happy if oltl is revived !!!
I’m soooooo happy to hear this . All my children is my baby was not a happy camper when taken off, but now sooooo happy.
I am thrilled with this news. I have missed OLTL more than I can say. Both shows are such important parts of American television history and should have never been taken off the air. I certainly look forward to their return. Thank you Prospect Park.
