All My Children is making a comeback of sorts as it’s been revealed that a sequel series titled Pine Valley is in the works.
Former AMC stars Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are reportedly among the team developing a primetime continuation of the long-running soap opera.
According to Deadline, the show will have a heightened tone and a relationship to soaps similar to Jane the Virgin‘s relationship to telenovelas.
The cast would be mainly new characters, however familiar faces including Mark and Kelly could be making an appearance.
Pine Valley, aka the Pennsylvania community in which AMC was set, will reportedly center on a young journalist with a secret agenda who arrives in town to bring Pine Valley’s deadly history to light.
However, the reporter gets tied up in a feud between the Santos and Kane families. Naturally.
The series is set to explore all the secrets that come with the Kane and Santos family names.
Kane was one of AMC’s founding families, with Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) becoming one of television’s most popular characters so there’s plenty of juicy revelations to come.
Kelly and Mark famously played Haley and Mateo Santos in the popular daytime drama, which aired for over four decades on ABC.
The pair will be executive producers alongside Andrew Stearn (Shameless), Robert Nixon, son of late AMC creator Agnes Nixon, and Leo Richardson (EastEnders, Star), who also will write the script.
