If we know anything, it's that you can never count out a long-running soap. After a previous deal to revive the canceled soaps "One Life to Live" and "All My Children" fell apart, now The Online Network has announced it has closed deals with the following talent to revive both shows. More deals are expected to come through in the following weeks, and soap fans can rest assured that at least some of their favorite actors -- and characters -- will be retuning to a screen (yes, a computer screen) near them. Below is a list of some of the writers and stars who will be continuing the story.
