Amidst all of the drama surrounding One Life to Live, fans received at least one piece of good news Wednesday.
According to UPI, the first season of the online version of the show, as well as the first season of the online version of All My Children, is now available on soapoperadigest.com.
"We are thrilled to have these amazing shows on soapoperadigest.com," magazine editorial director Stephanie Sloane said in a statement. "The fan outcry when they were canceled was overwhelming and now, thanks to TOLN, they have the opportunity to watch the groundbreaking first season of the re-boot along with their favorite characters in this fresh new format on our website."
"The cast and crew of All My Children and One Life To Live have worked tirelessly to bring these shows back to life and our commitment to them is that Season 1 reach the largest audience possible," The Online Network/Prospect Park CEO Jeff Kwatinetz said. "We appreciate Soap Opera Digest's help in reaching even more fans via their trusted brand and platform."
Both soaps were cancelled by ABC in 2011 so the network could make room for new lifestyle shows. After a long battle to make them available to fans again, Prospect Park and The Online Network made re-booted versions of the shows available on Hulu in April 2013.
Since the shows returned online, they consistently ranked in the Top 10 on both Hulu and iTunes, according to Prospect Park.
However, due to a lawsuit the production company brought against ABC about killing OLTL characters off when they were briefly brought into the still syndicated General Hospital, the show is currently on a hiatus, and may even be cancelled again, making season one the only one available to fans.
All My Children has been unaffected by the lawsuit for now, and is scheduled to begin production on season 2 next month.
