TVLine Items: Susan Lucci Eyes AMC Relaunch, Dancing's First Star Revealed and More!

All My Children SpoilersWith Prospect Park’s All My Children revival about to launch, fans are eager to know if Susan Lucci will reprise her role as Erica Kane.

“I so hope that I can return,” the suds icon shared Monday on The View. “I want with all my heart to return to All My Children. I just don’t know the answer yet — but what I do know is that all of us are working so hard to make that happen.”

Lucci — who can next be seen in Lifetime’s new Marc Cherry dramedy Devious Maids — went on to explain that her “heart is certainly with [AMC creator] Agnes Nixon” and that she’s confident the upcoming iTunes/Hulu revival is “going to be wonderful.”

In other AMC news, Daytime Emmy winner Eden Riegel has been tapped to bring Kane’s daughter Bianca back to Pine Valley in a guest-star capacity, and actor/The Price Is Right model Robert Scott Wilson has joined the online-only series as Pete Cortlandt, Opal’s youngest son.

    I hope Susan Lucci can rejoin All My Children. I have a good feeling about the revival.

  2. Jessica says:

    I don’t watch DWTS, but as a Ravens fan I might have to this year to cheer on Jacoby Jones!

  3. Tran says:

    Still enjoy Rob Wilson’s male modeling gig on The Price is Right. Why is he pulling double duty on both a game show (TPIR) and a daytime soap which is now online (AMC)?

  4. Britta Unfiltered says:

    I can’t wait for Veep to start again.

  5. Nancey says:

    With Susan currently living in New York and filming Devious Maids in Atlanta don’t see how she can make time for AMC which will probably film in LA. I thought she sounded very vague

  6. John Maynard says:

    I still don’t know where to go for episodes of All My Children who will be carrying the episodes- 30 year fan

    • Robin says:

      Hi John, they will be showing AMC on Hulu and Itunes. Still don’t know a start date but rumor has it April 2013. Can’t wait love AMC.

    • Mary Davis says:

      @John–I hope the word gets out as to where and when we can get AMC. I watched the show for many years.

  7. Skater Boy says:

    April 29 is the start date and AMC will have a huge void without Erica Kane. I hope something can be done to see Lucci back on AMC and allow her to do Devious Maids and Deadly Affairs. Erica Kane is an iconic character and she really flavours AMC and many woud say she is AMC. It really will be strange almost like it isn’t AMC without Susan Lucci. DAvid Canary, Vincent Izarry, Thorsten, Alicia and Eden are great but there is something unexplainable about Erica and Susan.

  8. It’s an amazing paragraph designed for all the online visitors; they will get advantage from it I am sure.|
