The Online Network has announced the date for the much-anticipated return of “One Life to Live” and “All My Children”. The venerable soap operas will debut on Hulu, iTunes and TheOnlineNetwork.com on April 29.
"We thank the fans whose tenaciousness to see these shows return made this historical moment possible. We are determined to repay their support by delivering new and creatively groundbreaking episodes that both the fans as well as legions of new viewers will love. These viewers will absolutely embrace the flexibility HULU and iTunes provide to watch their shows anywhere, anytime." said Jeff Kwatinetz and Rich Frank, Prospect Park's Partners.
Creator of both “One Life to Live” and “All My Children” Agnes Nixon beamed about the return of her shows after nearly two years off the air. "I am so pleased that our dream of bringing these two series back to life is coming to fruition," she said. "I am grateful to Prospect Park for their unwavering commitment to this project and to the amazingly talented casts of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” their devotion to these franchises has made this moment possible. And to the fans-well, we wouldn't be here without you," she continued.
ABC cancelled ‘One Life to Live’ & ‘All My Children’ in April 2011 citing changing viewer tastes. The show that replaced ‘One Life to Live’, lifestyle program ‘The Revolution’, was cancelled within months, after losing roughly 50-percent of the ratings commanded by ‘One Life to Live’.
