Not good news for GH! The problem with GH is JFP. Since her tenure with the show, it has gone to hell! But of course Mr. Frons won’t do anything about it, because he wants to rid ABC of soaps and JFP is clearing the way for him.

I do worry about GH’s future with this writer’s move. Do you think she will be allowed to stop the annoying near-incest/telenovela/gimmicky plotline over character history storytelling B&B does… um… so well. : – (

I’m ready for GH to be put out of it’s misery. Maybe it will take on a new and better life on Prospect Parks network.

In addition on Friday, the CW announced that after 15 seasons it is ending the hit series, Supernatural, which Cohen has also appeared and been a key part of many Supernatural fan conventions.

Series stars Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric Days), and Misha Collins made the announcement in a video posted on Instagram  “We just told the crew that even though we’re very excited to be moving into our 15th season, it will be our last,” Ackles said. “15 years of a show that has certainly changed my life, I know it’s changed these two guys’ lives, and we just wanted you to here from us that though we’re excited about next year, it will be the finale.”  The final season will consist of 20 episodes.

After the airing of his final scenes on General Hospital, and the news of Supernatural coming to an end, Matt tweeted:  “Tough day. Emotionally. My last episode of @GeneralHospital aired. And @cw_spn announced its final season. I am grateful to all the fantastic casts, crews, and fandoms I have been able meet along the way. It’s all those experiences that have helped me grow into the man I am today.”

Matt Cohen Exits General Hospital

Dr. Griffin Munro, the former priest, is departing General Hospital as actor Matt Cohen made the decision to wrap his run on the ABC daytime drama series.

Cohen told TV Insider on his decision, “I did three years at the show. It was a great time and I had great fun playing the character, but I’m a guy who gets uncomfortable when he gets comfortable. I need to give Griffin a little rest right now. I talked to Frank (Valentini, executive producer). We’re leaving it very open-ended.”

The actor is now also focusing on directing and his first short film Mama Bear has been getting a solid response at film festivals

As to if he would return to his role as Griffin ever again, Matt teased: “Maybe I’ll pop into GH every once in a while? That’ll be up to Frank and the writers as to what we do.”

Matt came on to General Hospital back in 2016 and viewers learned that he was the son of Duke Lavery (Ian Buchanan), and was put in the orbit and became dear friend of Anna Devane (Finola Hughes), Duke’s true love.  Later, Griffin became romantically involved with Ava Jerome (Maura West) and then her daughter, Kiki (Hayley Erin).

Look for Cohen to exit this Friday on the March 22nd episode of GH.
