In a few weeks, four decades of scandal will come to an end. The iconic soap opera, “All My Children,” will end its 41-year-run later this month. PEOPLE Magazine will be saying farewell to Susan Lucci, Melissa Leo, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Carol Burnett, and numerous other stars who have appeared on “All My Children,” with a commemorative book, PEOPLE Celebrates All My Children.
The book will hit news stands tomorrow and will feature exclusive photos, interviews, and stories about the legendary series.
Lucci told PEOPLE:
“I loved Erica Kane from the moment I read my first audition scene, and I will always love her. She made me feel like I can fly. The show always had a mandate to inform as well as entertain. The story lines about drug addiction and gay teens… it was groundbreaking.”
The commemorative book will be a nice way to remember all of the fantastic (and ridiculous) story lines from “All My Children,” but the soap opera hasn’t said goodbye just yet.
The show will air its final episode on September 26th, and it looks like they’re going out with a bang. Carrol Burnett, Josh Duhamel, and Sarah Michelle Gellar, will all be returning during the final stretch of episodes.
“All My Children” executive producer Julie Hanan Carruthers said:
“It is our honor and pleasure to welcome back Carol Burnett to Pine Valley. Verla Grubbs is a beloved member of the All My Children family and we look forward to reprising her character.”
After the last episode of “All My Children” airs on television, the show will continue on the internet, but without Susan Lucci.
