The wait is almost over for soap fans. The highly-anticipated return of two long-running ABC daytime dramas, " All My Children" and " One Life to Live ," will take place April 29 when new episodes of the shows debut online, courtesy of The Online Network.

Fans will be able to get the latest 30-minute episodes via the free service Hulu.com and on Hulu Plus for those with connected TVs, and various mobile devices.

In addition, the iTunes store will offer both series via iPhone, iPod Touch, Apple TV and Mac and PC.

Agnes Nixon, the Emmy award-winning creative consultant for both programs, said Monday, "I am so pleased that our dream of bringing these two series back to life is coming to fruition."

She went on to thank the fans and said, "We wouldn't be here without you."

Both shows are both being filmed in Stamford, Conn.

"All My Children" said goodbye to ABC after 41 years in September of 2011. "One Life to Live," ended its 43-year run on the network in January 2012.
