It's all over but the shouting for the premiere season of web continuations for All My Children and One Life to Live. Will the revived sudsers be back for Season 2? Prospect Park principles Jeff Kwatinetz says they will. 

"We could not be more proud to have delivered a stunning season of All My Children and One Life to Live, and really thank the creative teams and cast for being true partners in this journey.

Susan Lucci on All My Children Scheduling Challenges: “I’m Trying, and They Are Trying”


Just what has been the hold up in regards to Erica Kane fabulously descending upon Pine Valley? All My Children legend Susan Lucci broke it down in a recent We Love Soaps interview. Said La Lucci:

"I'm trying, and they are trying.  There's a lot to work out simply because when they went into production I was in Atlanta working on the Marc Cherry series, DEVIOUS MAIDS.  And now we're about to start Season 2 on my Investigation Discovery series, DEADLY AFFAIRS next week in New York.  So that's a lot of complicated scheduling.  Plus, ALL MY CHILDREN's schedule is also complicated and challenging because they work five weeks on and five weeks off.  So trying to marry those two things, that's what the challenge is and that's what we're going to try to make happen."
