44 March 18th, 2013 OLTL Back In Production! Kassie DePaiva Tweets First Images With Erika Slezak & More!

Today is a historic day for soap operas and for the beloved and iconic series One Life to Live, which was taken from us way before its time when it aired its last episode on January 13, 2012, after ABC made the decision to cancel it while it was on a ratings and creative high.

Now today, production begins anew thanks to the efforts of Prospect Park and all those behind-the-scenes to bring Llanview back to life in their new Connecticut studios!

Kassie DePaiva (Blair) has been our “Johnny-on-the-spot” getting images of this exciting day and tweeting them out to all her followers and One Life fans.  The one that struck us the most is pictured here  – seeing six-time Daytime Emmy winner Erika Slezak (Viki) returning to the role she loves so much, along with DePaiva.

In addition, there are images of balloons, her on-screen son Andrew Trischitta (Jack) and the younger set:  Robert Gorrie (Matthew), Laura Harrier (Destiny), Kelley Missal (Dani), Cordin Bleu (Jeffrey), plus  one of new executive producer, Jennifer Pepperman!

What do you think of the images coming out of Llanview today?  Excited as we are?  Share your thoughts!

    I will be so happy when OLTL is back .

    So happy that its back!! I also hope that our Canadian friends will get to watch it too. My cousin who lives in Canada told me that Canadians don’t have access to Hulu, and therefore won’t be able to see either OLTL, or AMC. In a way it won’t be a true celebration, until all fans on either side of the border get to see our beloved shows.

    who says that bringing AMC and OLTL will be an uphill battle? it will only be and uphill battle if the soap fans don’t watch online and I don’t think that’s going to happen! Every person I know that has watched in the past says that they will be watching. Have missed these shows and looking forward to their return… can’t wait for April 29th to get here!!

    This is great news! I am SOOO looking forward to One Life to Live! Love this show. It comes across as being a real family. I can’t wait to see Bo, Vicki, Cassie and the rest of the cast. I am not sure what the casting departmnent was thinking with the new Destiny but I will give the new actress a fair chance. I hope Prospect Park and GH can work together. I think this would be in the best interest of all of the soaps.
