Soap opera fans are going to love this. After ABC ended 'All My Children' and 'One Life to Live' in spite of protest and anger from unhappy fans, Prospect Park has officially decided to bring back both series. The shows will air new episodes online beginning sometime in 2013.
'All My Children's' return took one step closer to being a reality today as it resigned a key player from the show's run. Vincent Irizarry, who starred as Dr. David Hayward from 1997 until the "end" in 2011, announced on Facebook today that he is mounting up for the revival.
"Happy to share that I just signed on with Prospect Park for the All My Children reboot," he wrote. "Excited to bring dastardly Dr. David back to life, as he did for so many others, and to see my dear friends in Pine Valley once again. A great, big thank you to all the fans for your tenacity in keeping the hope alive. You’re awesome!!! Let’s all keep our fingers crossed together that it becomes a reality."
Irizarry becomes the first cast member to resign. Both shows intend to add a lot, if not all, of the cast members who were there at the end of the shows' runs.
