Show Summary

Passions was a decade long soap opera created by James E. Reilly, the same man who pulled Days of our Lives out of a ratings slump in the 1990s. Centered around the inhabitants of Harmony, a small seaside town in Maine, Passions excels at creating romantic triangles on the show, and controversy in the fans off the show. The show is based around five core families: the Standish/Bennett clan, the Winthrop/Crane clan, the Lopez/Fitzgerald clan, and the Johnson/Russell clan. Every other character can be directly (and romantically) connected to someone in one of the other clans.

Passions premiered on July 5, 1999, and last aired on NBC on September 7, 2007, before being picked up to air on DirecTV starting September 17, 2007. DirecTV canceled the show at the beginning of 2008, and the final episode aired August 7, 2008.

    • I really liked the supernatural twists in this show!

      I really miss Passions. I used to look forward to watching new episodes of this show everyday with my sister as it aired on NBC then aired on Superchannel here in Canada. I really think it was cut down too prematurely just like the rest of the soaps that are all disappearing. Soon all we'll have left is Young and The Restless, Days of Our Lives, General Hospital and Bold and the Beautiful. R.I.P. the original daytime television: Passions, As The World Turns, All My Children, One Life To Live.moreless

    • "Passions" is a soap with a supernatural twist!!!

      The brainchild of James E. Reilly, "Passions" premiered on NBC in 1999. The show follows the daily adventures (and sometimes, misadventures) of citizens of a fictional small New England town called Harmony, which includes a 300-year-old witch named Tabitha Lenox. Unlike other soaps, "Passions" is known for its mix of off-the-wall storylines and humor, as well as a youthful but attractive cast. Although "Passions" is not a huge ratings success during its run on NBC, it did established a very loyal cult following. In 2007, after 8 years, the network pulled the plug. Soon after, DirecTV came to the rescue. But its new home didn't helped win over new audiences and "Passions" was cancelled for good in 2008.moreless
    • I think this is a great show out of all the others.

      I think this is a great show out of all the others. This is a good soap opera. I love the fact that evil can prevail from time to time but I love it even more when good ends thwarting evil at the last minute. I never liked the fact that Kay ends up winning Miguel and Charity is left out of the picture (literally). I think that Charity should come back and at least fall in love with someone else (like that John guy for example). This is the only aspect of the show i don't appreciate. Other than that all the show is good as it is.moreless
