Susan Lucci was a guest on The View his past Wednesday and during the conversation with the ladies of The View, Lucci revealed that the final airdate of All My Children will be this coming, September 23rd.

In a behind the scenes bit for the show’s website, ViewTube, Lucci talked with The View’s EP, Bill Geddie, stating about AMC’s  cancellation, “I am processing this, it’s a loss.”  Then the two discuss her new storyline on AMC, “As far as the doppelganger storyline, it is not an evil twin at all. This is a very contemporary story of identify theft and what you can do in modern times. It’s like All About Eve. This woman does not just want Erica Kane’s credit cards, she wants those too. But she wants her life…the glamor, the glitz, the red carpet, and the men.”

    This is really going to be the end to an era, one that I have personally been a part of since early 1974. I remember, Susan Lucci’s beautiful and firey character, as “The Legendary Erica Kane, and her infamous marriges beginning with Chuck Martin throug Jackson Montgomery, her drive for fame and fortune and attaining all she set out to accomplish. I believe that Ms. Lucci so profected the character of Erica Kane; it almost feels like we’re, the viwers, are really losing our beloved Erica Knane and all her splenda. I loved you Susan as ERICA and will truly miss my #1 day time soap star. The very, very best to you Susan, and whatever your future golas are; I believe if you go after them with the same firey passion you profected as ERICA and her great capacity for loving life, you are sure to super suceed all your hopes for the future and more. I love you and await what you will bring to us in your next roles….. Sincerely, best wishes!!

    I think that this is a real shame. AMC leaving the air. Soap operas have been around in the USA for over 75 years. I feel like if they would tape the soaps and air them @ night on the Soap Opera network channel, they could still tape them and air them at night. Instead of taping 4-5 days per week, they could record 3 days, he actors would still have there jobs and we the fans would still have our soaps. I grew up watching soaps with my grand mother & mom it has been a family tradition for us. I know that more women are in the work force and not staying home during the day, but soaps still have many, many fans that love them. I can’t believe that they are being replaced by silly cooking show. We have enough of them and reality shows on the air now. PLEASE, PLEASE DON’T TAKE AWAY OUR SOAPS!!!!!! IT ISN’T FAIR 2 THE FANS OR THE ACTORS WHO HAVE BEEN IN OUR HOMES & HEARTS 4 YEARS. I STARTED WATCHING AMC WHEN I WAS 2 YEARS OLD AND HAVE BEEN WATCHING 4 OVER 34 YEARS. SUSAN LUCCI, ERICA CANE IS LIKE A FAMILY MEMBER 2 ME. AMC ACTORS Y’ALL WILL ALWAYS BE LOVED AND REMEMBERED IN THE HEARTS OF YOUR SOAP FANS!!! WE WISH Y’ALL ONLY THE BEST OF LUCK IN YOUR FUTURE ENDEAVORS. MAY GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU.!!!!!!
