Breaking news this afternoon! Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) has signed on for her first television role post-All My Children! The soap icon will be appearing in a multi-episode story arc of Lifetime’s Army Wives! Lucci will appear in at least two episodes and maybe even more for the sixth season of the series!
According to TV Line, “Lucci will play the wife of a retired general who gives Kim Delaney’s Claudia valuable advice on how to deal with a potential rival.” Army Wives also gives soap fans an inside hook, as it will reunite Susan with her former AMC castmate Kim Delaney who played Jenny Gardner.
Now with that being said, does this mean Susan has moved on from life in Pine Valley, and is not reconsidering an offer from Prospect Park to join AMC in some capacity when it moves online next year? Or, perhaps, it’s just a great fun choice role that came up in the interim … and that Susan is looking at this point in her career to take on other roles? Only time will tell, but it will be great to see Susan back on our television screens once again.
