‘All My Children’ Canceled Again, SOAPnet to End by 2014
It’s bad news all over for daytime soap fans.
The online version of All My Children has been canceled, and SOAPnet is going with it.
Veteran AMC cast member Debbi Morgan tweeted that the show was “officially done,” which was confirmed by fellow cast member Cady McClain, who made the announcement on Facebook: “[We] were very recently contacted and told that, with great regret, AMC won’t be going back online this year, or in this particular incarnation.”
The writing has been on the wall with the series for some time, as fellow soap One Life to Live went on indefinite production hiatus over two months ago due to complications from the ongoing legal battle between production company Prospect Park and ABC.
In addition to the loss of All My Children, SOAPnet will be going off the air after 14 years. The channel is expected to be completely dark by years end. On many cable systems, the network has already been replaced by a Disney Junior feed.
So R.I.P. AMC…Again. Oh, and SOAPNet too. You’re the only place a guy could watch hassle-free reruns on The O.C.
