General Hospital Setting Their Sights On Mid-July Return To Production

Photo: JPI

ABC’s General Hospital has announced tentative plans to restart production amidst the coronavirus pandemic in mid-July according to a report on Friday via Deadline.

That means that three of the four network soaps will have returned or are targeting returns next month.  The Bold and the Beautiful after a one-day start, put a temporary halt to production to ensure accurate COVID-19 testing protocols were in place, resumed production on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, The Young and the Restless revealed plans to start production back after the 4th of July holiday weekend, and its projected return is July 6th.

Now with GH’s plans to come back to production mid-July, viewers could start to see new episodes this summer of their favorite soaps.  Days of our Lives, is not currently back in production and has no need to rush back; given that they already have episodes in the can till the fall.

However, this start date for GH is fluid, given the LA Country cases for COVID-19 have been on the rise, and the number one county in America for most new cases.  Stay tuned for more updates in this developing situation.

So, excited to hear that GH is planning on taping new episodes in a few weeks? Comment below.

Looking forward to seeing it.

Meanwhile, it’s been a solid week of ACTUAL General Hospital episodes this week.

Even saw Franco today.

NOT Frodd, the actual Franco.

Hope the GH writers have been watching these reruns and realize that THIS is what they should be trying to write. And stop listening to Valentini and his vanity crusade to reanimate the corpse of OLTL.

GH films 3 months prior to episode realise..
So- it would be aired mid-October.

GH can actually film 3 WEEKS, not months, before air date. Typically, they are around 5-6 weeks, but get to around 3 after summer and Christmas hiatus periods.

Then there is DOOL which films 6 months prior to episode release

Pretty sure those Days (pardon the pun) are over. Ironically, the only time the 8 months ahead taping schedule ever proved useful was right now, because it allowed DOOL to remain on the air with “new” episodes for months after the other three were in rerun city. Of course with sports also out of commission, and Days NOT taking the usual breaks for various tennis & golf tournaments (let alone the two weeks off for the Olympics that would have come later in the summer) those episodes are now actually running a few days “ahead” of schedule. So assuming they… Read more »

During the hiatus, Frank has been uncharacteristically quiet. Now would be an ideal time for him to be making interviews to build up interest in the show.

Hopefully, they make some adjustments and don’t try to pick up exactly where they left off.

This won’t happen. Numbers are spiking again and LA county has the highest of any US county. They would be wise to wait until September or October to start. Then premiere new episodes starting Jan. 4. They would have some banked and should have protocols better set for the work environment.

I am so excited to finally hear this! I hope that date sticks or is moved to earlier. Will be soooo happy to have new episodes to watch.

I must say, however, that the older repeats they have been showing lately, have help me understand more about the show from before I started watching.

Still, nothing like your favorites back with new shows!

As much as I love GH and want you all back; but only if it’s safe to do so… I’ve been watching since the 70’s and if any time is slowed down, or anyone has missed any, it’s not hard to catch up, with any of it. I guess if we don’t get to see it until Fall; it will give us all something to do through Winter, and all the Hallmark Christmas movies, that is if there in or going to do any production. They’ve been showing reruns too! To all of from the show, just stay safe, and… Read more »

Look forward to GH returning with new episodes! When new episodes return, I hope they do some flashback sequences (like they had been doing the last couple of months of new episodes) to remind us what was going on. Great photo of Monica and the boys.

Although I don’t watch GH, (I like the rest of the world watched during the Luke and Laura heyday) I was wondering how any soap is going to return to “normal” what with mandatory mask wearing and social distancing rules still in affect. No fight scenes, face slaps, kissing/sex sciences. I am a Y&R and B&B watcher since the late 80’s and last we saw on Y&R Nick and Phyllis were always going at it like dogs in heat. I wonder if and how that is going to take place now. The same goes for Brooke on B&B. I don’t… Read more »
