All My Children returns to the digital airwaves in under two weeks — without the soap opera's most famous face. Will legendary creator Agnes Nixon be able to convince her protégé and pal Susan Lucci to return as Erica Kane? Here's what Nixon told TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan:
"Susan has so many other commitments these days but I certainly see her in our future. She is such a talent and a dear friend. I remember the first time I saw her when she auditioned for AMC. I thought she was too beautiful to be a good actress. I was so happy to be wrong! I do hope with all my heart that Susan will be free enough to come back to us for a while." Adds the scribe with a laugh: "You know me. I always have a great story in mind for Erica Kane!" READ MORE

The network has released a promo that heavily features classic scenes of beloved characters, such as Bianca (Eden Riegel), Angie (Debbi Morgan), Jesse (Darnell Williams), Zach (Thorsten Kaye), Brooke (Julia Barr), Adam (David Canary), Dixie (Cady McClain), Joe (Ray MacDonnell), Tad (Michel E. Knight), Myrtle (Eileen Herlie) and the dastardly David Hayward (Vincent Irizarry).
I couldn’t help but choke up rewatching Bianca’s coming out to Erica (Susan Lucci). The first nine minutes are a wonderful reminder of All My Children’s past, while the last minute gives viewers a taste of what’s to come. Prospect Park's All My Children premieres on iTunes and Hulu on April 29. Watch the promo after the jump! READ MORE
With under a month away until All My Children’s re-launch, many are wondering what exactly is going to happen? Access Hollywood caught up with Eden Riegel (Bianca) to get the 411 on life renewed in Pine Valley.
Access: The last time people saw ‘All My Children,’ J.R. Chandler had a gun, and he was hiding behind the walls as most of the residents of Pine Valley were gathered together. What can you tell us about where the show picks up?
Eden: By having a quick sort of fast forward you get the opportunity to restart things because things have changed a lot in these people’s lives and yet, they’re still struggling with some of the same issues, and, of course, that final cliffhanger has definitely affected — it’s ricocheted and affected people’s lives and Miranda and A.J. who were just little kids at that point are now teenagers and dealing with the fallout themselves. So I think it was a really, really smart move to do this time jump because then you just get so many more possibilities. You don’t have to quickly rehash and finish up old stories. You get to start fresh with the same people, but at a slightly different point in their lives. READ MORE
