Just a thought since it got Dallas back on the air...even if ATWT or GL were done like Dallas only 10 to 15 episodes a season with cliffhangers.

if AMC and OLTL are successful online maybe we'll get more soaps revived like ATWT, GL, AW. I'm hoping that ATWT gets revived more than any of them

Let's not get ahead of ourselves, Soapsuds.  It's a blessing for fans that someone has revived AMC and OLTL.  But that's only half the battle.  And even if the re-launches prove successful with fans, there's still the chance that networks will pass up reviving other, cancelled soaps in favor of developing brand-new ones.

Dallas is not comparable to  ATWT and GL .

Frankly, me neither.  DARK SHADOWS and EDGE OF NIGHT might work better with abbreviated seasons.

Before we start talking about other soaps to revive, though, let's see if 1) DALLAS itself is renewed for another season (I hear it's on the bubble), and 2) TNT, or some other network, attempts to revive shows like KNOTS LANDING and DYNASTY.  I, for one, might be interested in a DYNASTY 2.0 on, say, Bravo or LOGO?

Dynasty would already have their new generation laid out with Christina Carrington and LB Colby

I read that he was optimistic not that it was official yet.

Where's this confirmation about season 3?

 

I don't think a soap opera block would fit into TNT's daytime lineup. It goes from shows about supernatural elements to law and cop shows. Las Vegas was on there for awhile but they put some law show in that slot.

So are Norman Fell (Mr. Roper), Audra Lindley (Mrs. Roper) and Don Knotts (Mr. Furley).  I'm not signing up for a 3'sC reunion with just Larry and the girls.  Not even if the story is about Jack Tripper dying and giving them the bistro.

I don't think either would translate well in primetime seeing as they were in daytime for decades and are identified

with the daytime format. Dallas was revived in the format it was originally in.
