The announcement was made Thursday by the network and byProspectPark, the media company that has acquired both of the 4-decade-old programs.

ProspectParksaid it will produce and deliver the programs via online formats and other platforms, although it offered no specifics. There also was no mention of when either show might resume under the agreement or whether their current actors would be retained.
