As the World Turns Producer Speaks on Show's Cancellation

by at . Comments

Yes, As the World Turns really is coming to an end.

In an interview with TV Guide Magazine, producer Chris Goutman speaks on the sad news and on whether or not the soap opera might find a home on another network...

On his reaction to the news: It’s a shame and it’s a shock because we absolutely thought we had a shot at another year. Our show is not ready to go because, creatively, we’re on a roll. We still have exciting stories in the works and we’re sticking to them. We’re not ready to start inviting back old favorites and do the nostalgia thing.

On moving to another network: We just continue to tell good stories and we’ll see how the efforts go in terms of shopping the show around. There will be plenty of time to bring in whomever we want from the past. I think we’re in a very, very good place and we’re excited by everything that’s going on, but the numbers in November just didn’t budge.

All I can do right now is to try to do a good show and keep everyone focused and excited and proud of their work.
