And it turns out OWN has a very good reason for bringing back the shows -- Oprah herself is a fan!

"These shows have proven to be very popular with a significant, loyal fan base, not to mention Oprah herself is a big fan," Erik Logan, president at OWN, tells The Hollywood Reporter in a statement. "Many of our viewers across numerous platforms have expressed their passion for the soaps so we are especially excited to air this limited engagement on OWN."
