While soaps fans are trying to figure out just how the reboot of All My Children will pick up from where the ABC version of the series left off, (with JR firing a gun into something or someone) ABC Soaps In Depthhas reported from some of their sources the following: “AMC will have a heavy emphasis on a group of high school characters and that the series will be set five years from the moment JR readied to start shooting beloved Pine Valley citizens in the broadcast finale. Speaking of JR, the re-launched AMC will be start off with Adam and Dixie’s son waking up from a coma!”
If these elements hold true, how do you soapers feel? Would you want AMC online to pick up right from where they left off? Knowing many of the original cast members are not coming back full-time, or have not been able to confirm participation at this point in time. Would you prefer the series advancing one year ahead, or five?
What do you think about introducing a core group of high school students? Fans would hope that these students would be SORAS’d children of series core families. And with the five year time lapse, that would make more sense in order to properly “in soap terms” age them.
As On-Air On-Soaps previously reported last week, during our discussion with Jacob Young (Rick, B&B Ex-JR, AMC), the Daytime Emmy winner revealed that Prospect Park and AMC were actively pursuing a recast for JR, since he is on contract with B&B. Jacob also offered up that he had heard that AMC going to advance only one year from where it left off.
So soapers, weigh-in! What do you think of these reports of how the new AMC will be framed?
