"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."
"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," said Jeff Kwatinetz, CEO Prospect Park Networks. "We look forward to our millions of fans enjoying the first 40 episodes of the shows."

Now, five years later, longtime series characters including Brooke English (Julia Barr) and Adam Chandler (David Canary) reflect on the aftermath of that fateful event, new characters are introduced, and life in Pine Valley continues to be fueled by the drama .
As One Life to Live makes its return to the small screen, everyone in Llanview, PA is preparing for the opening of a new nightclub, Shelter. But the fun and games of Llanview's nightlife are soon interrupted by a murder that puts everyone on edge.
