There are too many unanswered questions before I can get excited about this. IF I can even get excited.

1.) Prospect Park's deal over AMC's rights expired in September and ABC refused to renew it and their hold on OLTL is up in a month.

2.) It's been a year since AMC/OLTL were on the screen. Actors have moved on, fans have moved on. It wouldn't have been too hard to continue immediately following the finales, but now, it would be extremely hard since they would either have to time jump OR recast 75% of the canvas.

3.) The GH/OLTL (best described as combination) has left it hard to just "continue" OLTL. You can't pick up from the finale we already know bits and pieces of what's happened since then. A time jump would have to occur.

4.) The only writing "pair" that are currently penning a daytime drama that PP would be interested in would be Ron and Frank and I highly doubt they'd take the obvious pay cut to leave their (almost number one daytime soap) to go to a online soap which frankly, wont last more than a year. Even if they WERE interested and they left GH, GH would follow OLTL/AMC to cancelation by 2014.

Deadline is a credible source, however they do their fair share of spinning just to get page hits. Although I've now seen this on TV Guide and TVByTheNumbers as well, so it's being talked about, but honestly I just dont see it working out logistically.

If it does happen I fear that it'd be more like AMC 2.0 or OLTL 2.0 due to the actors moving on. I mean the entire OLTL staff knows that if they wait long enough Ron/Frank will spin them a story on GH which is on TELEVISION rather than a low-paying gig on a web soap.

As fans of the saop, do we WANT this to happen?

Vincent Irazarry is on my Facebook page, and according to him (or whoever posted on his behalf) PP will REBOOT AMC, and he will continue with his role as David Hayward. Also, he says he met up with the rest of the cast and spoke about how great it was to "see everyone again." So I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Sure sounds like a "go" to me!! I hope most of the cast join also.

We've got ya covered. We've been in close talks with PP and they're sending us the news before the fans hear so we'll update this piece consistently as we've been doing. :)
