More cast cutting from the soaps today.  ABC Daytime has confirmed to Soap Opera Digest that Brittany Underwood (Langston) has been let-go by the series and the decision was storyline-dictated. Langston is now set for an exit this spring.

Underwood first appeared on the canvas as a wayward teenager who Dorian took under her wing and eventually adopted.  So where does this leave Ford and an on-screen romantic interest for his portrayer, David Gregory ?  Stay tuned!

Although i love OLTL, I am always surprised by who they let go!

My opinion, not a good move. It sounds like the writers are doing it in reverse. We wanted the Fords gone, not all of Starr’s best friends.

Langston was playing an awesome role w/ Markko. Along w/ her friends Starr and Cole.They had a good inner circle.. But when they brought the Fords in, that ruined the whole show. And because of these ignorant writers. Gives me no regret for the fact that all the ABC Soaps were taken off the air.

perhaps if enough of us post comments, ABC will change their minds. I hope we find out more as to why she is being let go.

come on! I think it is horrible that OLTL is letting Brittany go. I’m so over this soap.

I think this is the best idea because I have never cared for Langston. I don’t mind the Ford brothers and I think I will like Ford even more if he is paired with someone else. The Langston pairing seemed forced and she should have been with Markko still. When she was with Markka I could tolerate her a little.

I just started watching this show and the best character is Langston.

Why? This is not fair. Langston needs to stay.

If Brittany Underwoods exit is storyline-dictated and the Ford brothers are sticking around. My guess is Langton killed Eddie.

Langston should not be leaving to prop the Ford brothers and in no way should she have killed Eddie. What a disgrace these writers would be. She is a wonderful character all on her own and Brittany has portrayed her beautifully over the years. I cannot stand by this terrible decision to fire the talented, young actress. Langston should be sticking around.

I really can’t believe they are letting Brittany go. What in the world are they thinking??? What about getting rid of the new girl Aubrey… she’s a pointless character or Marty who hasn’t been that great of a character since after she came back from the dead. Then Susan Haskell could take on for The ABC team and move to California so Thorsten could fo back to All My Children. OR even Echo??? Rex already has a mom who is much more intresting by the name of Roxy. They could even het rid of Inez, make her really respnsible for… Read more »

ABC and OLTL you are making a big mistake. The best idea is to get rid of Susan Haskell so Thorsten can go back to AMC………………..

I don’t understand why they would do this. She’s very talented and I’ve come to think of her as a real Kramer. I’ve always kind of preferred her to Starr. She’s been a lot spunkier. Will be sad to see her go.

I agree. Langston was such an interesting character and she should have been around for a long time. I am beyond sad to see her go.

The whole “Ford brothers” thing started with Langston. They wrote her horribly to facilitate this relationship with Ford and demolished her beautiful story with Markko. Then they decide not to even write for Ford/Langston. For the past few months, they’ve gotten nothing. So now Langston is the one to go, and not Ford? Why? Because he has abs? This news has been hard to take ever since I heard it. She was an amazing female character that could be looked up to & Brittany rocked the role. OLTL is on my hate list.

Agreed. I loved the character of Langston when she was with Markko. She was a spunky, interesting nonconformist. I HATE all three of the Ford brothers, and since Langston’s forced pairing with Ford, she’s turned into just another dull, horny nondescript teen character. As the writers have ruined the character, I’m now not that sorry to see her go.

I actually like all of the Fords….except Nate. Inez is a recurring character, but her arc seems to be over. I do not agree that being with Ford ruined Langston. I believed her motivation for wanting to explore outside of her safe first love. It happens all of the time. She is not the first to move on to a hotter guy. Poor writing has ruined her character. Ford should not have been so easily redeemed. That is why we have James….the anti-Ford Ford brother. I am sorry for the actress, but her character is completely not necessary to the… Read more »

Of course I want Langston to stay and get the character investment she deserves as opposed to newbies I could care less about. The character is 19, hardly an age of limited storytelling possibilities. She has connections and a past to work with. As a female, I tend to invest in female characters but I’m realizing that is the wrong way to go with these soaps.

Keep Brittany on the show! Langston is a great young character and I’ve absolutely been a fan since she first came on. This is just awful. Man do I wish they would undo this.

From the start, I felt like they were tossing both Langston & Markko to showcase Ford. Markko was gone, and Langston was used to prop until they could move on with plans. That has made me tune out.

That is exactly what they did, much to my sadness. It was uncalled for.

Kristina Wagner Shares She’s Back On Contract at General Hospital

This past week, General Hospital fans were thrilled with the news that longtime fan favorite, Kristina Wagner (Felicia) was on her way back to the soap opera to tape new episodes.  However on Saturday, the actress shared even bigger news.  She is back on contract at the ABC daytime drama series.

Kristina revealed via her Instagram: “I’m pleased to announce I just finished my first work week on contract with General Hospital. The good people there have made it a well oiled machine. I’m so impressed with the way they navigate the Covid protocols. It’s not easy but we’ll worth it. We’ve got some fun storylines coming up. I’ve been thrown in the middle of a current storyline and I think Felicia’s part in it gives it some color. Stay tuned!”

Earlier in the week on Tuesday via Twitter, Kristina expressed: “Tomorrow I head back to work on General Hospital! Lucky me. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of that family once again. Here we go. More to come. Felicia Scorpio rides again.”

Wagner began her GH role as Felicia Cummings, the Aztec princess back in 1984 and has appeared on and off the show since then.

So what storyline do you think Felicia will get thrown into? Will she return to Port Charles to help Maxie (Kirsten Storms)?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

‘Dr. Oz Show’ Taken Off the Air in NY and PA Due to Senate Run; Daphne Oz ‘The Good Dish’ to Fill Time Slot

In light of his announcement that he will be running as a republican senate candidate in the state of Pennsylvania, Dr Oz’s daytime talk and medical show, The Dr. Oz Show, is being taken off the air in key markets in New York and Pennsylvania, according to the Fox Station Group.

According to Deadline’s sources, Fox TV Stations proceeded with pulling the Sony Pictures TV-distributed syndicated series because of the prospect of being forced to give other political candidates running in Pennsylvania equal time, expressing that it “would be a nightmare for us, there was no way we were going to be able to do that.”

In its place, look for Dr. Oz’s daughter, Daphne Oz, to be the fill-in with her show.

Starting on January 18th, Daphne’s The Good Dish, will take over the time slot during the duration of her father’s political campaign.  This potentially could go all the way through November of 2022, if Oz remains in the race through election day.

Last fall, Fox TV Stations renewed The Dr. Oz Show for two more years which gave it life through 2023.

So, do you think more stations will go bye-bye and have The Dr. Oz show pulled? What do you think of daughter Daphne’s series as the fill-in? Comment below.

General Hospital Has No Immediate Plans to Recast the Role of Jason Morgan Following Steve Burton’s Departure

According to a report from Variety, ABC’s General Hospital is not planning on recasting the role of Jason Morgan at this time, following the exit of Steve Burton.

The two-time Daytime Emmy winning star was let-go from the soap after not adhering to their Covid-19 vaccine mandate.

The mandate went into effect on November 1st and in story, the series wrote Burton out, but still left wiggle room for the character to return.

Jason was buried under a rubble when a cave collapsed on top of him, while he was trying to apprehend arch-villain, Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his exit announcement on Instagram, Burton did express: “Maybe one day if these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan.”  Steve had played the role of Jason since 1991, but with a four-year break at Y&R, before returning to the role in 2017.

Now whether down the line, GH does eventually recast Jason remains to be seen.

So, it looks like Jason will be off the canvas for awhile, and Port Charles will continue to grieve for him.

So, what are your thoughts? Should GH leave Jason off the canvas? Should they recast down the line?  Comment below.
