A longtime fan favorite is returning to GH to help them celebrate their 56th year on the air.  According to EW.com, look for Denise Alexander (Lesley Webber) to be back in action and in scenes with her on-screen daughter, Laura (Genie Francis).   Alexander returns on-air on Tuesday, April 2nd.

In story, Leslie returns to Port Charles to honor the late Dr. Gail Adams Baldwin (the late Susan Brown) when Gail’s final wish was to have all her friends gathered together.  Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn), who is Gail’s lawyer sets up the event.

In a sneak peek video, Lesley and Laura realize how Gail’s passing has brought up memories from their past at that time they were both working at General Hospital.  Gail was also a doctor.

Laura says to her mother: “I remember when I was a candy striper. And I was so proud that my mother was a doctor in the hospital. I was really fortunate to have a role model like you.”

Alexander first played the role of Lesley in 1973.  Her initial run on GH was from 1973 to 1984 ,and again from 1996 to 2009. Denise then made guest appearances on the ABC daytime drama series in 2013 and 2017.

So, what do you think of Denise Alexander returning for a memorable occasion on GH? Comment below!

    SHOOT ! I – get it – have been IMPRESSED with Genie Francis… PLUS whatever the hair and makeup w/dress. has been doing – KEEP IT UP. this “beloved” character is that strong a hold, for; Shelly AND Chris… that to not just bring Denise Alexander for the 55th Anniversary… but to build and solidify around Laura.. will only strengthen her. PLUS she’s just one of the LATE GREATS . Recurring role .. if she’s up to.. is tantamount to , at the very least bringing us a core veteran family.

    Lesley / Laura / Kevin / Spencer ….

    could Nicholas Cassadine be far behind

    “exclamation”

    this answers for YOU !!!! Shelly AND Chris… your lack of a full canvas … for that full one hour… is empty. PLEASE consider this… they are full characters . answers 1/2 your PROBLEM at year after year attempts at continually “boring” us with Sonny and Carly… they are the dullard

    @GH has so much going for it.

    ONE PROP – YOU WERE SMART to bring on Dante… after the culmination AND superpowerhouse Jon Lindstrom. two enigmatic characters rich and full of history in the capable hands of two of your best solid acts. This is truly a test to see just how far you two (shelly AND Chris ) can focus and bring good story. it’s just so gnawing , because ALL of the actors responsible for bringing the Shiloh story IS BUST. spiral this junk.. and lets see Sam bring Kristina to heaven. dag already

    Dominic Zamprogna, welcome back.. it’s a treat to see you outside of your former shell. up to this point.. just watching your acting skillset come alive. Thank You
    it’s meh all around that the corinthos clan is stink on shit.. otherwise you are BACK !

      Always impressed with Genie–and I agree re hair and makeup and dress. Love Genie’s longer hair (reminds me of her in earlier years) and her natural makeup.
      So good–she has that glow! Go, Genie! I would love to she her also dressed down in a pair of jeans and a casual shirt. Delicious!

    So excited! Love that Lesley will be back. And Laura as a candy striper! She’s come a loooong way since then.

    Glad to have her back (albeit for one episode). Wished Laura mentioned her a bit more.

    Love that they are bringing back Denise Alexander. She has always been my favorite. Wish they would keep her around and find Lesley and Monica a man to fight over.

      She’s always welcome. I was just speaking of her the other day, when she (and I) was very young. Speaking of men, I wonder if she’ll have her good looking Italian gentleman with her. I may be old, but not dead yet!

    Who

    Who kills Shiloh will be GHs new murder mystery too…

    • Violet Lemm

      March 28, 2019 at 11:17 am

      Can’t wait. By the time this is over, it could be anyone’s guess. Maybe it depends on who he’s done the most harm to. We know Krissi will be devastated when she sees him for what he really is.

    • Satan

      It will be Willow who kills him. After she finds out that the baby she had with Cult Boy (more than likely the product of a rape) and gave up for adoption is actually dead, she will have a complete meltdown, and as a result, will not go to prison for killing Hank or Shiloh or Jim Jones or whatever the Hell his name is.

      Then she and Mikey can raise his kid together sappily ever after….

      • Jimh

        March 28, 2019 at 2:52 pm

        Willow is also Nina’s daughter

        • Satan

          March 28, 2019 at 9:48 pm

          That seems likely…. since her hatred of Nina is practically a carbon copy of the hate Sam had for Alexis before she knew she was her mom. Or Billie & Kate on Days of Our Lives, for that matter.

          Another one of those well worn soap cliches that you can usually see coming from 666 miles away.

    Wonderful! Can’t wait to see her and Genie together again. They’ll bring some much-needed warmth to what has become a very harsh GH.

    What’s the airdate(s)?

  15. Kerry Kassinger

    Lesley needs to be brought back to GH full time. Laura needs her Mom.

    It will be lovely to see her again.

    Yes. Give her a contract. She is daytime royalty and an amazing actress! GH needs more longtime veterans around PC!

    This is a momentous occasion in daytime TV, as true soap royalty makes a return to a soap! It was newsworthy back in 1973, when Denise Alexander joined GH after a stint as a popular character on DOOL. Her GH tenure and subsequent returns have been exquisite gifts for the viewer. This is one episode I won’t miss!

    General Hospital is making a big mistake by not having these Legends are still in good health like Chris Robinson and Leslie Charleston Denise Alexander carat diamond people would love to see these people back on the show and wouldn’t have more viewers and it has now but they just can’t seem to figure that out

B&B’s Supervising Producer, Casey Kasprzyk Shares: “Just Finished Viewing Our First Produced Episode Since Starting Production Back Up!”

In a tweet late on Thursday, the supervising producer of The Bold and the Beautiful, Casey Kasprzyk, shared his enthusiasm at completing the first major hurdle for the soap going back into production during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Showing a viewing copy on disc of the first new episode produced for B&B in months, Casey said: “Just finished viewing our first produced episode since starting production back up! So proud of Team Bold & Beautiful. Great shows airing soon”

The disc had airshow number #8321 on it, and a question mark as to when it will make it to air.

The fact that The Bold and the Beautiful is the first daytime drama to get one new episode completed is a step forward amidst the spike in COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County and the state of California.

Now soap fans will have to wait and see if General Hospital and The Young and the Restless begin their productions in the middle of July; as last projected by both series, or if there will be further delays due to the ongoing crisis for the safety of everyone involved at the shows.

So, excited to learn Casey’s news that there is a new episode of B&B on the horizon for viewers to see? Comment below.

‘Strahan, Sara and Keke’ Canceled by ABC; Show Aired In Timeslot That Once Housed ‘All My Children’

No matter a network tries to do, replacing All My Children, which ran for 41 years on ABC has remained as everyone that follows the world of daytime drama knows, problematic.  Now come word via Page Six that Strahan, Sara and Keke has been canceled.

The show hosted by Michael Strahan, Sara Haines and Keke Palmer if you recall, replaced the foodie show, The Chew which ran for seven seasons and was the first show to air in the timeslot that belonged for over four decades to All My Children. 

Back in March of this year, Strahan, Sara and Keke took a break to make way for ABC’s News  Pandemic: What You Need to Know, a daily coronavirus report anchored by Amy Robach, Dr. Jen Ashton and sometimes TJ Holmes.

However, because the show did well in that two-week experimental run it morphed into GMA 3: What You Need to Know.  The new version of the show also talked about hot topics in the current news cycle, as well.

ABC’s Catherine McKenzie began producing the “GMA3” show four months ago and the network officially announced her as Executive Producer of the program on Thursday.

While ABC has yet to officially announce Strahan, Sara and Keke is over, a spokesperson told Page Six: “We’re proud of our teams at ‘SSK’ and ‘GMA3’ and how quickly they transitioned to producing a daily show to give people the news and information they need during an unprecedented pandemic, and conversations continue about how the show will evolve in the months ahead.”

It appears that Strahan, Sara and Keke won’t be returning; the future as many of their staff have transitioned over to ‘GMA 3’ with producers from ABC News Live, (the streaming division), helmed by McKenzie.

As for the futures of Strahan, Haines and Palmer; Strahan will continues to host Good Morning America, and they are all actively under contract with the network.

So, what do you think of  ‘Strahan, Sara and Kek’e being replaced by ‘GMA 3: What You  Need to Know’?  How long do you think that show will last in the timeslot once taken up by residents of Pine Valley? Comment below.

The Young and the Restless Pushes Back Production Restart Date Due To COVID-19 Spike

As the coronavirus pandemic is spiking again in LA County and California, CBS’ Daytime-Emmy winning The Young and the Restless has now postponed their previously announced goal of a production restart of July 6th to now eyeing July 13th as their new start date.  Deadline first broke the news.

But all of this could change, given that California Governor Gavin Newsom and LA County health officials have come forward that the spike of COVID-19 cases, test positivity and hospitalization rates in California have given the Governor serious concerns, so much so that now he is tightening restrictions again for the state to include: once again shutting down indoor dining, closing all bars, indoor movie theatres, as well as all beaches being closed for the 4th of July holiday.

Just last Friday, Y&R picked up the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series at the 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards. 

General Hospital is still eyeing a mid-July production restart, The Bold and the Beautiful had gone back into production and Days of our Lives still has episodes banked into the fall, and at this time have not yet announced plans to restart production.

So, do you think Y&R can safely go back into production in a few weeks given the COVID-19 uptick in new cases? Comment below,
