Great news for Llanview fans!  While many have been commenting that all the actors thus far who have announced that they are participating in the upcoming Prospect Park reboots are from All My Children, well that ends tonight thanks to fan favorite Jerry verDorn!

The Daytime Emmy winner took to his Facebook page to announce he has signed on for the revival of One Life to Live! 

Jerry verDorn stated,  “Hello Everybody. One Life Lives.  And good things come to those who wait.  Or so it is said.  About an hour ago I agreed to be part of the OLTL revival and I’m thrilled to be involved in entertainment history as the show we love moves to other formats. The fans consistent drum beat of support played a large part in Prospect Park never giving up trying to find a solution. And today they announced it to the world.  With the cherry-on-the-top-news that Agnes Nixon has been hired as a consultant! For those who doubted, I don’t blame you as this has never been done before.  For those who never lost hope and never stopped writing and calling, well, good things come to those who wait.  Congratulations to you all. Welcome back to Llanview.  Love, Jerry verDorn.”

So soapers excited to see Jerry back in the saddle as Clint Buchanan?  Weigh-in on this exciting news!

    Another HUGE get!!!! So important to get one of the Buchanan brothers on board! One down, 20 or so more to go.

    This is so unbelievable! A year ago, it was all but dead and buried. And here we are, and there is a glorious light ahead. So, so proud of all this beautiful movement taking place in the right direction! THANK YOU Prospect Park!!!

    Waiting to see the production start date!

    Chris replied

    PP also has to make a deal with the WGA too to make this really happen!

    susan M. replied

    I hope this definetely happens this time. It all sounds good so far but I hope it will again definetely happen… I miss these soaps so much. Especially miss
    most of all Erika Slezak(Viki),(blondie). My favorite on OLTL (#1) in my book!

    I seen this posted on facebook and was jumping up and down literly!!!! Now we need ES, RW, MA, ME, TW, RH, TSJ, KDP and so on! I think we will hear more before the weeks out. I’m more positive after today but being a long time Jolie and TnB fan its gonna be bitter sweet for me.

    This is getting more promising with each passing day, may it continue!!! I am glad to see Jerry aka Clint on board. Here is hoping his coming back will help lure Erika Slezak, Robert Woods and Hillary B Smith (although I believe she might be doing another online soap) back as well. I hope all of our beloved actors and actresses, who have not moved on to other shows or endeavors can all come back too, like Trevor St. John (Victor), Rex and Gigi, Roxy, Blair and her boys, Tea and her daughter, Shaun, Destiny and Mathew B, the hunky Ford Brothers, and the Buchanan girls, just to name a few on OLTL. I am also excited about AMC !!!!

    Chris replied

    Actually, Michael Easton (McBain), Kristen Alderson (Starr), and Roger Howarth (Todd) all have contracts to GH!

    TRW replied

    But only one of them had announced they were staying with PP…

    susan M. replied

    We don’t know how long their contact w/GH is ???? Maybe they will return or
    maybe not. We will just have to wait & see.

    ME & KA can head back for all I care….Start packing………..
    KA has a 3 year contract and I believe ME only signed on for 6 months.

    MBmomof3 replied

    I’m hoping ME will head back to Llanview and Natalie & Liam ;) Todd & Starr are working out nicely in Port Charles, so they can stay with brief pop-ins to visit Blair, Dorian, Vickie, etc.

    Will GH be apart of Prospect Park? I thought PP had brought rights to them too.

    Mr. Fairman, when you remove the R.I.P.s could you add “Pretty Little Liars” to your list? Other than GH and SOAPnet it is the ONLY ABC/D product I watch. It is an excellent drama featuring many soap actors. Thank you for your consideration.
