Fans of the daytime soap All My Children may soon be able to return to Pine Valley. A primetime sequel series, titled Pine Valley, is now being developed at ABC. Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelo are behind the potential revival series, alongside Andrew Stearn and Robert Nixon.
Deadline revealed the following about the new series:
“In the All My Children followup, written/executive produced by Leo Richardson (Katy Keene, Star), a young journalist with a secret agenda comes to expose the dark and murderous history of a town named Pine Valley only to become entangled in a feud between the Kane and Santos families. The seres explores all the secrets that come with the Kane and Santos family names.”
All My Children was cancelled by ABC in 2011 after a run of 41 years. It was revived online by Prospect Park in 2013 but ended that same year. ABC regained rights to the series in 2016.
It was reported that some characters from the soap would pop up on the primetime sequel series, alongside new characters.
