An All My Children revival is reportedly in the works at ABC!
According to EW, a primetime revival of All My Children is in the early stages of development with former stars Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos executive producing.
The revival is currently titled Pine Valley and will follow a young journalist who arrives in town with the goal of exposing the dark history of Pine Valley. The character quickly becomes caught up in a feud between the Kane and Santos families.
Leo Richardson, known for his work on Katy Keene and EastEnders, is writing and executive producing the project. Robert Nixon, the son of All My Children creator Agnes Nixon, is also on the project as an EP.
All My Children originally ran on ABC for 41 years from 1970 to 2011. ABC canceled the daytime soap opera in 2011, but it was previously revived as a short-lived web series in 2013. In the original series, Ripa played Hayley Vaughan from 1990 to 2002, with Consuelos playing Mateo Santos from 1995 to 2002. The two married in 1996.
The All My Children cast reunited earlier this year and many of the actors said they would be open to a potential reboot. “I don’t think that any of us — if the time was right — would say no to that!” Walt Willey told EW at the time. “It’s such a wonderful piece of Americana. The fans who loved us so much, and we love them just as much. We’d do it for them.”
