A large number of soap fans miss SOAPnet – the cable channel that aired current and classic soaps around the clock. Fans were sad and disappointed when the popular channel went off the air last December.

Fortunately there’s still hope for those of us who like to indulge in a favorite soap opera of the past.

According to Soap Opera Digest, thanks to Lucen Productions, ‘The Doctors’ is coming back to its many adoring fans. The soap which ended in 1982 will air reruns on the Retro TV channel.

‘The Doctors is one of the greatest examples of the soap opera format in its prime, loved by critics and audiences alike. We're thrilled to return this classic series to the air, and bring its exciting, engaging storylines back to our audience's daily lives,’ Lucen’s Vice President of Production Matthew Golden said in an official statement (via Soap Opera Digest).

Although an official air date was not released, ‘The Doctors’ will air in late 2014.

Some household names that took a turn on ‘The Doctors’ include Hillary B Smith (Nora, ‘One Life to Live’), Kim Zimmer (Reva, ‘Guiding Light’), Kathleen Turner, Alec Baldwin, and Ted Danson.

So if you're already a fan of 'The Doctors,' won't it be fun to watch those classic episodes again. If you're not a fan, this would be a great opportunity to get to know the classic soap opera.

Retro TV is dedicated to offering viewers a wide array of classic television shows. For more information on Retro TV and to see if the channel is available in your area, visit the official website here.
