On March 18 and June 17, 2013, the show was joined by two newly debuted soap operas called Universal Lives and One Line to Cross, respectively. All My Secrets celebrated its 50th anniversary alongside General Hospital on April 1, 2013. On October 21, 2015, BGC renewed All My Secrets for another new season.
