One Life to Live’s Daytime Emmy winning, head writer, Ron Carlivati told Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on sale now that since he is staying with OLTL when the show moves to The Online Network next year he now has a clear vision of how he plans to end the series in its finale on ABC and then set-up its continuation online.
Carlivati stated, “I had to rethink a lot of things. Even though, yes, it should end like a big normal Friday cliffhanger, you also want to reward people who have watched it on ABC for all these years. They want to have an emotional payoff for a lot of characters they love, so our goal is to do both things: some payoff, some happy endings, and also some big cliffhangers that will keep you guessing so you want to know what happens next.”
Ron also went on to say that knowing several key cast members have signed on to OLTL’s online version that it helped him in the transition of story. “Now that we have a clearer idea, I was able to hone in and focus on how its going to wrap up. We still have a ways to go before that! But it has all been thought through and figured out and I’m really happy with it.”
It sounds to us like Ron is set to give a mixture of everything longtime fans of the show would want in a finale! So what would you like to see happen on OLTL on its network television last episode? Let us know!
