Your favorite soap operas will continue on ABC. According to Soap Opera Network, a recent lawsuit has been dismissed against the Alphabet Network and the channel will retain the rights to One Life to Live and All My Children.
In 2013, Prospect Park Networks filed a lawsuit against ABC, alleging the network “has been breaking the licensing agreement and sabotaging Prospect Park’s efforts to continue ‘All My Children’ and ‘One Life to Live’ online.” The production company began streaming the soap operas online earlier that year.
Later, ABC countersued Prospect Park Networks and the resulting case was dismissed in October. According to Soap Opera Network, now that the lawsuit is over fans are hoping for a revival.
One Life to Live ended its network run in 2012 and was briefly revived by Prospect Park Network as a Hulu web series in 2013. However, the company’s pending lawsuit with ABC and behind-the-scenes difficulties ended the short-lived revival later that year.
All Children, which began in 1970, ended its network run in 2011.
What do you think? Are you a fan of All My Children and One Life to Live? Do you still want a revival?
