The show was considered groundbreaking on many levels. It was the first daytime drama to feature a larger working class cast of characters, as well as the first major African American and Hispanic families in the cast, and touched upon many topics that were taboo, including the first legal abortion in television, protest of Vietnam, and one of the characters contracting [=AIDs=]. As well as social issues, the show was the first Soap in History to shoot outside the studio and on location in New York City, which sister series ''Series/GeneralHospital'' would soon follow suit.

On April 14, 2011, it was announced that All My Children would be canceled. All My Children aired its last episode on September 23, 2011. Originally, a company named Prospect Park had purchased the rights to both ''Series/OneLifeToLive'' and ''All My Children'' from ABC and was planning to continue the series either on a cable channel or possibly online. Those plans fell through, however, and when the show signed off, it was presumed that it was gone for good. As of early 2013, however, Prospect Park announced that they would be bringing both shows back after all, with distribution through Hulu and other online video providers. Many of the major performers have agreed to return to the show and shooting began in March 2013, with the premiere on April 29, 2013.

Unfortunately, due to a combination of factors, the series was again cancelled, this time for good, on November 10, 2013.
