The ABC Soap Opera Universe is the universe where nine ABC soaps coexist, both current and former. There are a number of other ABC soaps, but these are only the ones that have been shown interconnected. This will tell how they are connected by characters, places, or businesses.
All My Children
All My Children's Skye Chandler-Quartermaine and Rae Cummings connected to One Life to Live and General Hospital. When Skye was assigned a task by Asa Buchanan, she moves to Llanview. Both Skye and Rae later go to Port Charles in search of Skye's long-lost biological father. Anna Devane hid in Pine Valley when an assassin from Port Charles was trying to kill her. Robin Scorpio, her daughter, went to Pine Valley after learning she was alive. Cole Thornhart hid from the Llanview police here. Chandler Enterprises from Pine Valley is a rival of Buchanan Enterprises from Llanview and ELQ International from Port Charles.
The City is a spin-off from Loving and is based in New York City. A few people moved to NYC from Corinth, Pennsylvania that lived after the murder of many people in Corinth. The Quartermaine family surfaced in NYC and then later moved to the setting of General Hospital, Port Charles, New York.
General Hospital has housed many characters from All My Children, One Life to Live, Ryan's Hope, and The City. It has a lot of characters from both its spin-offs Port Charles and General Hospital: Night Shift and the show itself that have switched back and forth. The show also has characters living in the setting of its first official spin-off, The Young Marrieds, which was based in Queens Point, a suburb to Port Charles In a way, GH is a soap graveyard. It is also the only one still currently running. When One Life to Live came out, Dr. Steve Hardy from Port Charles went to Llanview to bring viewers to the show. When the show went off the air, the show had many characters brought to Port Charles. In 2013, in an effort to bring back Ryan's Hope, Delia Ryan was revealed to be the mother of Ava Jerome The Citys characters of the Quartermaine family were brought to Port Charles in the late eighties and have been a large fixture in on the show ever since. All My Children characters Skye Chandler and Rae Cummings went to Port Charles to find Skye's real father. They did not find him, but Alan Quartermaine adopted her into the family. Skye became a large piece in Port Charles. ELQ International in P.C. is a rival to Chandler and Buchanan Enterprises.
General Hospital: Night Shift is the third and final spin-off of General Hospital. Many characters have featured crossovers between them.
Loving is the predecessor of The City. General Hospital characters Luke Spencer and Holly Sutton visited the shows setting of Corinth, Pennsylvania after revisiting a storyline of a mass murder of the towns people.
One Life to Live
One Life to Live is based in Llanview, Pennsylvania and right across the river is the setting of All My Children, Pine Valley. Characters Skye Chandler and Rae Cummings came to Llanview during a storyline where Asa Buchanan called Skye for help, and Rae went there looking for her daughter. These characters also made their way to General Hospital. Cole Thornhart went to Pine Valley to hide from the police. Characters Blair Cramer, Todd Manning, Starr Manning, Cole Thornhart, Hope Manning-Thornhart, Tea Delgado, and John McBain made their way to Port Charles after OLTL went off the air in 2013. GH characters Dr. Steve Hardy, Carly Corinthos, Heather Webber, and Danny Morgan have been to Llanview, Pennsylvania as well. Tomas Delgado from Llanview was thought to actually be Lorenzo Alcazar from Port Charles, prompting Todd, Carly, and Skye to go there to stop Blair and Tomas/Lorenzo from getting married. Shortly thereafter, a CIA agent tells Blair, Tea, and Skye that Tomas/Lorenzo was called on a mission. Blair, Tea, and Skye are now said to be looking for Tomas/Lorenzo. However, due to the Prospect Park and ABC lawsuit, those characters were unable to return to Port Charles, even though Skye was a major role on GH. GH did not own the character of Skye, as the character was actually from AMC and was switched from AMC to OLTL and then to GH until the Prospect Park online run with AMC and OLTL was started. Blair, Tea, Todd, Starr, Cole, Hope and Tomas belonged to OLTL and, due to the lawsuit, were forced back to OLTL. The lawsuit was caused by the Tomas/Lorenzo storyline and GH killing off Cole and Hope. Prospect Park felt ABC was sabotaging them. The lawsuit ended in December of 2016 with ABC regaining the rights to OLTL and AMC. As a result, attorney Nora Buchanan crossed over to GH from OLTL. Nora came to Port Charles to be Valentin Cassadine’s lawyer. It is said she and Bo Buchanan are still married. Buchanan Enterprises is a rival of ELQ International and Chandler Enterprises.
In an attempt to revive a little bit of ABC's daytime history, Ryan's Hope character Delia Ryan was shown in 2013 on General Hospital. During a storyline about the missing Quartermaine heir, at the time Franco Baldwin was thought to be Alan Quartermaine and Susan Moore's long lost son and twin of Jason Morgan, and Kiki Jerome was thought to be Franco's daughter, characters Luke Spencer and Damian Spinelli went to New York City to find Kiki's mother and instead discovered her grandmother was Delia and she had a daughter with Victor Jerome, Ava Jerome. This occurred in Delia's place of business, Ryan's Cafe.
The Young Marrieds was the first official spin-off of General Hospital. While the show was short lived and didn't feature and crossovers, it's setting was Queens Point, NY, said to be a suburb to Port Charles, and the characters of Elizabeth Webber, Patrick Drake, and their families lived in this suburb.
