Lucci played scheming diva Erica Kane for 41 years before the daytime drama was canceled by ABC in 2011.
A web version of the soap began production Monday, with many of the show's cast members reprising their roles. The Online Network expects to start airing fresh episodes of the series this year.
"I so hope that I can return," Lucci said on Monday's edition of the ABC chat show, "The View."
"I want with all my heart to return to 'All My Children.' I just don't know the answer yet. But what I do know is that all of us -- all of us -- are working so hard to make that happen."
