All My Children cancelled finale spoilers AMC
All My Children was cancelled, aired finale September 23

The “All My Children” finale aired today after 41 years on the air, ending with a cliffhanger…

Though All My Children was cancelled, it may live on online or on other platforms, so hopefully fans will see what happens after that cliffhanger!

The final All My Children episode had most of the characters together at the Chandler house for a party, and… All My Children Spoilers… J.R. was outside with a gun, lurking about, and later, a gunshot was heard… and the screen turned to black!

All My Children premiered on ABC on January 5, 1970.

Perhaps AMC’s best known actress was Susan Lucci, who played Erica Kane, but did you know about these other celebrity parents who got their start on soap operas?

Some of the famous faces are All My Children alum, while some have other soap operas to thank for launching their careers.
