All My Children and One Life to Live may have bitten the dust, but ABC's stalwart General Hospital will be back for at least one more season, Deadline reports.
NBC has renewed long-running soap Days of Our Lives through September 2016, the network announced Wednesday.
Daytime Emmys update
"Days of our Lives continues to be a fan favorite for the daytime audience and we are thrilled to keep it going through its 50th season," said Jennifer Salke, President of NBC Entertainment.
For a while there it looked like the Daytime Emmy soap categories would be split among just four shows — The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of Our Lives and General Hospital. But a ruling from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has allowed the Prospect Park internet reboots of All My Children and One Life to Live to compete in all the soap categories — and those web kids are serious about taking home some gold!
Days of Our Lives star Alison Sweeney made a major announcement on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Monday: She's leaving the soap opera after 21 years.
General Hospital has cast Knots Landing star Donna Mills in a mysterious role, Entertainment Weekly reports.
There's hell to pay on CBS's The Young and the Restless! Grieving dad Billy Abbott (Billy Miller) doesn't for sure know the identity of the hit-and-run driver who killed his little girl but his suspicions continue to mount next week when he learns that Adam Newman (Michael Muhney) — the creep who committed the crime — is making plans to leave the country.
Look who's got some hot scoop for the Port Charles Police Department! Oscar winner and sitcom icon Shirley Jones — yep, Mama Partridge herself — will guest star on General Hospital Feb. 5 as Mrs. McClain, a lonely widow who sees something strange and disconcerting while visiting her husband's grave.
She was a huge fan fave as All My Children hell-raiser Greenlee Smythe. Now Rebecca Budig is creating a little slice of heaven on The Better Show, the syndicated spinoff of Better Homes and Gardens magazine, now in its sixth season. TV Guide Magazine spoke with Budig about life away from AMC plus lots more, including that diss from Prospect Park, her various husbands and the Emmy-winning soap star who keeps stealing from her!TV Guide Magazine: Look at you being Martha Stewart! How'd this happen? Budig: Better was looking for a new co-host and I went and did two audition shows with [co-host] JD Roberto and really liked him. We clicked. I've always juggled hosting jobs with my acting career, and this fits into my life perfectly. They're really flexible. I have great outs in my contract to do other stuff. And it's a great show. I love improving people's lives. [Laughs] Especially my own! ...
She scored outrageous success with her landmark internet series Venice, now Emmy-winning actress-producer Crystal Chappell (Guiding Light, The Bold and the Beautiful) is about to bring us another web potboiler, Beacon Hill. The series, which begins streaming March 5, is set against the cutthroat world of Massachusetts politics and features lots of lesbian steam and a cast of daytime greats, including Sarah Brown (General Hospital), Alicia Minshew and Ricky Paull Goldin (All My Children), Tina Sloan and Ron Raines (Guiding Light), Melissa Archer, Jessica Morris and John-Paul Lavoisier (One Life to Live), Scott Bryce (As the World Turns) and Louise Sorel (Days of Our Lives). TV Guide Magazine caught up with the über-busy Chappell to get an exclusive preview.
He infamously killed Laura Palmer in Twin Peaks and starred as the Devil himself in Reaper. What evil does Ray Wise now have in store for The Young and the Restless? On Wednesday, Jan. 8, war vet Dylan McAvoy heads to Idaho in search of his birth father, Wise's character Ian Ward, who was a notorious cult leader back in the 1970s. But before Dylan can find Ian, Ian will show up in Genoa City! Wise gave TV Guide Magazine the wicked lowdown.
