Don’t count Susan Lucci (Erica) out of the ALL MY CHILDREN reboot just yet! During a visit to THE VIEW this morning, the Emmy winner gave an update on where things stand with her return to the soap, which resumed production this morning for The Online Network.
“I so hope that I can return,” she confessed. “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 all of us are working so hard to make that happen. I really want to. My heart is certainly with [creator] Agnes Nixon and it’s going to be wonderful. I want you all to watch because it’s going to be great.”
While sources connected to the AMC relaunch had shared with Soaps In Depth that Lucci would be appearing in one episode via a telephone call, we have since learned that due to Lucci’s current schedule, the conversation will now be a one-sided one with only the person with whom Erica is speaking being seen. Lucci is currently filming Lifetime’s DEVIOUS MAIDS in Atlanta, and will soon begin production as hostess for the second season of Investigation Discovery’s DEADLY AFFAIRS.
