General Hospital Releases Its 56th Anniversary Episode Promo

Next week, General Hospital continues on as the longest-running daytime drama still on the air, when it turns 56.   To make the occasion, the soap opera will celebrate with a special episode to air on Tuesday April 2nd.  (As we know, GH premiered on April 1, 1963).

Now, ABC has served up a promo and reveals that in story: “The people of Port Charles come together and celebrate the life of Gail Baldwin (the late Susan Brown). It’s our 56th Anniversary, don’t miss out! #GH56”

In a post on social media, the series says to join them for a special episode that “celebrates the history and legacies of GH.”

From the looks of it, Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) and Monica (Leslie Charleson) are chatting about the anniversary of the hospital, and what a kick to see former on-screen nemesis, Dr, Lesley Webber (the returning Denise Alexander) and Dr. Monica Quartermaine walking the hallways of GH chatting about old-times. Later, Bobbie says to Scott (Kin Shriner), “Look at us.  We’re still here after all this time.”

Check out the teaser below.  Then let us know if you are happy to know that GH plans to turn 56 by putting the spotlight on some of the longtime and beloved characters via the comment section.

Well, the promo wasn’t too thrilling but I am always happy to see the vets played more. They anchor the show. It was by their work that the show was able to remain with us for 56 years. I am looking forward to seeing how this story involving Gail plays out. I hope it was longer effects than Helena’s Will did. That was dropped like a hot potato.

Soaps are families to viewers. So wonderful to see the upcoming episode will remember that. I watched religiously in the 1970s and 1980s and 1990s. I found the stories lacking some since admittedly. But to see the vets back reminds me of the families we find in our stories. And how those vets should and do remain vital.

I’m happy that there’s a GH to tune into everyday, and here’s to more decades of GH.

Today I feel compelled to give some kudos to GH for honoring its rich history in promotion of its 56th anniversary and using the passing of Gail Baldwin as the catalyst for the celebration. It’s refreshing to see Monica, Lesley, Bobbie, Laura, Scotty, and Felicia. Yet it’s nauseating to see the predictable ending of the commercial with the despicable and omnipresent Sonny, placing a taint on the festivities… Still, I will tune into this particular episode on this one particular day, making a return of my own as a former decades-long viewer to this, my once-favorite show. After all, they’re… Read more »
