(Newser) – Looks like All My Children and One Life to Live aren’t done for after all. ABC has sold online rights to the soaps, which were scheduled to go dark for good in September, to Prospect Park, a TV, film, and movie company that intends to continue them on the Web, the New York Post reports. All the cast and crew will remain in place—yes, including Susan Lucci—and the storylines will pick up right where it left off.

The shows will be part of a new Hulu-esque online TV network that hopes to feature other well-known TV shows. The venture hasn’t been named yet, but its initial funding round should be finished within 45 days. Prospect Park, which launched in 2008, is run by the same people who executive produce USA's Royal Pains.
