Soap fans have a new date to mark on their calendars, and for once it's not a series finale.

"One Life to Live" and "All My Children" will make their online debuts on April 29, according to Prospect Park's The Online Network, which stepped in after both soaps were canceled by ABC.

Fans will be able to watch on Hulu or Hulu Plus (which charges a monthly fee but allows viewing on devices other than a computer) or download episodes from iTunes.

“We thank the fans whose tenaciousness to see these shows return made this historical moment possible.  We are determined to repay their support by delivering new and creatively groundbreaking episodes that both the fans, as well as legions of new viewers, will love.   These viewers will absolutely embrace the flexibility Hulu and iTunes provide to watch their shows anywhere, anytime,” said Jeff Kwatinetz and Rich Frank, Prospect Park’s Partners, in a prepared statement.

“The response and camaraderie of our cast and crew has been inspiring as we have all banded together to succeed in our mission; unencumbered by the creative constraints of traditional broadcast television, to deliver storylines, style and characters that are stronger, with more dimension than ever.  Now with our launch date set in stone, we are ready to lead this historic return.  To the fans we proclaim, your support counts now more than ever.”

 Also on board: Agnes Nixon, who created both shows and will be a creative consultant.

“I am so pleased that our dream of bringing these two series back to life is coming to fruition," said Nixon in the statement. "I am grateful to Prospect Park for their unwavering commitment to this project and to the amazingly talented casts of ‘All My Children’ and ‘One Life to Live’ – their devotion to these franchises has made this moment possible.  And to the fans – well, we wouldn’t be here without you.”
