Earlier today it was announced that ‘One Life to Live‘ and ‘All My Children‘ have been canceled. All My Children is scheduled to go off the air in September, followed by One Life To Live in January of 2012.
Actress Susan Lucci is keeping a positive attitude:
“It’s been a fantastic journey. I loved playing Erica Kane and working with [show creator] Agnes Nixon and all the incredible people involved with All My Children. I’m looking forward to all kinds of new and exciting opportunities.”
Just ten days ago Kelly Ripa had told Us magazine that she couldn’t imagine AMC being off the air:
“I can’t even think about that. All My Children means so much more to me than any place, because [Mark and I] met there, we had our children there, it was a big part of our lives, and I think that to cancel a show that has been on television for so many years, what are you going to replace it with? I mean I just don’t know. I just feel like it’s such a training ground for so many actors.”
Are you shocked at the news? Will there be any soaps left??
