Two years ago, ABC canceled the long-running soap operas All My Children and One Life to Live, citing “extensive research into what today’s daytime viewers want and the changing viewing patterns of the audience.” Despite ABC’s “research,” plenty of viewers were upset by the announcement.

Just a few months ago, we got word that the two programs were being resurrected and would later launch on Hulu and iTunes. Today, Hulu has made it official.

“We’re thrilled and honored to carry on the tradition with the return of beloved soaps “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” with new episodes on Hulu and Hulu Plus starting today,” says Martin Moakler, Hulu’s Social Community Manager.

“I know it was a long wait,” says Cady McClain, who plays Dixie Cooney Martin on the show.. “I know there have been a lot of ups and downs. I just want to assure the fans that it feels like another era of golden years for this show. It’s truly the best that ‘All My Children’ is and can be again.”

“I’m very excited and feel super lucky to be here right now,” she says. “The story and sets are incredible. There are so many surprises coming. I can’t wait to watch it myself!”

Hulu knows that some of the soap opera crowd may not be totally familiar with Hulu, or online streaming in general. So they made this video full of soap stars to educate the uninitiated:

    I am so thrilled to have One Life to Live back. It was such a mistake taking it off the air. But now it’s back and I will watch every episode Monday through Thursday. You did a great thing bringing it back for all the loyal fans. Thank you!

    I can’t believe it..I was watching One Life to live on my lap top this afternoon. I have missed all my friends on the show. I felt something was missing in my life when the soap was dropping from ABC. They became such a part of my life for 40 some years. I am so elated that I have the opportunity to watch them once again. Maybe you could talk to Opera about putting them back on TV..This could possibility help her network.

    I think it’s terrible for the individuals who love both shows, but don’t have access to a computer to watch the shows daily.
