All My Children and One Life to Live are returning to television.
The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) announced Wednesday that the first 40 episodes of both soaps will start airing on July 15 for a period of ten weeks, with AMC at 1pm and OLTL at 3pm.
Now on the Online Network (TOLN), AMC and OLTL was part of “ABC Daytime” for over four decades – centering on the trials and tribulations involving the people of Pine Valley and Llanview, Pennsylvania.
Created by Agnes Nixon, OLTL debuted in 1968, followed by AMC two years later in 1970. Both of them were canceled by ABC in less than a year, with AMC in September 2011 and OLTL in January 2012.
New half-hour episodes can still be found online at Hulu.
