“One Life to Live” and “All My Children” are coming back to television for a limited run.
The former ABC soaps, which were recently rebirthed on Hulu and iTunes, will air on OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network, beginning July 15.
The run will be a limited engagement of just the first 40 episodes of The Online Network’s reboot of the two shows, but it gives fans a chance to watch their favorite characters from Llanview and Pine Valley on television once again.
“All My Children” will air at 1 PM ET/PT and “One Life to Live” at 3 PM ET/PT, Monday through Thursday on OWN, starting July 15.
“These shows have proven to be very popular with a significant, loyal fan base, not to mention Oprah herself is a big fan,” Erik Logan, president, OWN, said in a statement. “Many of our viewers across numerous platforms have expressed their passion for the soaps so we are especially excited to air this limited engagement on OWN.”
Prospect Parks CEO Jeff Kwatinetz also expressed his delight over the shows having a limited run on TV.
“We are really excited to bring OWN viewers and our audience at large an opportunity to catch up on ‘All My Children’ and ‘One Life to Live’ on traditional television,” he said in a statement. “We look forward to our millions of fans enjoying the first 40 episodes of the shows.”
