The new and old
The show will be a mix of new and old characters. Mark Consuelos and Kelly Ripa are helming the show executive producers under their production company Milojo Productions, along with Andrew Stearn, and Robert Nixon, son of late All My Children creator Agnes Nixon.
The story will start with a young journalist returning to Pine Valley to expose its dark secrets, only to become entangled in the ongoing rivalry of the Kane and Santos family. Erica Kane played by actress Susan Lucci was one of the most popular characters of the Pine Valley soap opera.
Pine Valley will start in 2021
So far, no actors are confirmed, we are not certain which old character will make a comeback and which new characters will be introduced. The only confirmation is that lot of the old cast will make a special appearance in the new show including Mark Consuelos and Kelly Ripa.
The original ‘’ All My Children” was created by Agnes Nixon, and aired in 1970. It had a run for forty-one years, making it one of the longest-running shows in American Television history. The last episode aired on September 23rd, 2011.
The show was famous to tackle societal issues through its various storylines, including the Vietnam War or the transgender storyline. Unfortunately, the dipping viewership leads to the show being canceled.
With the new show, the expectation is the same, that it will continue to mirror the new American Society and its issues. American Broadcasting Company (ABC) has definitely trying to bring back an oldie but a goodie show.
