There will also be several surprise drop-ins by other AMC cast members, past and present.
According to TV Guide, “Expect lots of exclusives, including never-before-seen footage of AMC‘s final day of production (sob!), interviews with many of the AMC alumni who made return appearances during the soap’s final weeks, and a sneak peek at the finale.”
