All My Children is coming back to television! Okay, so maybe not in the fully revived fashion fans are hoping for now that ABC has regained the rights to the classic soap, but the second best thing: Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane) is set to guest co-host an entire week of Hallmark's Home & Family, and one of her episodes will feature a very special AMC reunion.
Beginning Monday, January 30, Lucci will participate in every aspect of the daily morning program, including cooking, playing games, and sharing personal stories with viewers, People reports. The actress will also be joined by her husband, Helmut Huber, and her two children, Andreas and Liza (ex-Gwen Hotchkiss, Passions).
But the truly extraordinary tidbit that accompanies the exciting co-hosting news is that Home & Family has organized an All My Children reunion special to air on Thursday, February 2! The much-anticipated episode will feature Peter Bergman (ex-Cliff Warner, AMC; Jack Abbott, The Young and the Restless), Kim Delaney (ex-Jenny Gardner), Laurence Lau (ex-Greg Nelson, AMC; ex-Brian Wheatley, One Life to Live; ex-Jamie Matthews, Another World), Eden Riegel (ex-Bianca Montgomery, AMC; ex-Heather Stevens, Y&R), Kathleen Noone (ex-Ellen Dalton, AMC; ex-Edna Wallace, Passions), Eva LaRue (ex-Maria Santos), John Callahan (ex-Edmund Grey, AMC; ex-Dr. Baker, Days of our Lives), Rebecca Budig (ex-Greenlee Smythe, AMC; Haden Barnes, General Hospital) and Cameron Mathison (ex-Ryan Lavery).
"It's going to be so exciting to see so many of the people I worked with, love and admire. We all haven't been together since All My Children went off ABC [in 2011]," Lucci enthuses about the reunion episode, which will also include segments honoring Erica's dysfunctional family, a look at AMC's supercouples, and a tribute to late show creator Agnes Nixon, who died last year.
Says H&F executive producer and creator, Woody Fraser: "Susan is a tremendous talent and we're very excited to have her join us for a full week of shows."
To catch all the excitement Lucci will bring to Home & Family, be sure to tune in to Hallmark Channel the entire week of Monday, January 30, through Friday, February 3, at 10AM ET.
