Is Jack Wagner Headed Back To General Hospital? Or, Isn't He?



Over the past week, speculation has been all abuzz on the internet that Jack Wagner was coming back to work at General Hospital to reprise his role as Frisco Jones, although it was never confirmed.

Today at, in a item touting Wagner’s upcoming appearance on the hit ABC series, Castle starring former OLTL star, Nathan Fillion on January 7th,  it appears that Wagner has revealed he has not been asked to return to the lone ABC daytime soap in quite some time!

The popular Wagner revealed, “There was a call in February when I’d committed to Dancing With the Stars and wasn’t able to go back, and since then there’s been nothing. General Hospital is always dear to my heart and I’m really happy Kristina’s  (Felicia) back. She still looks so beautiful. Kristina and I haven’t talked about it, but I have a feeling if I went back that would probably garner just a little bit of attention.”

Jack Wagner also apparently declined The Bold and the Beautiful’s recent invite to return as Nick Marone for Stephanie’s teary farewell party episodes!

So soapers, would you like to see Jack back as Frisco in Port Charles? If so, how would you write him into the story, so it makes sense as to what is happening right now?  Weigh-in!

Yes please! Bring him back and also Genie Francis and Kin Shriner too. They don’t have to come home for good (Genie should) but at least to create some conflict for the other characters and help boost the ratings even more.

I would love to see a return of Frisco Jones to general hospital!

Me Too !!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wish Jack Wagner would head back to B & B. I sure do miss seeing Nick. Also his son on the show Jack.

Good for you JW for turning down B&B I hope you told them where they could put their invite. I am not sure how he would fit in the canvas on GH but I adore him and would love to see him back.

Definitely! Bring back Jack!

I keep hearing jack Wagner is coming back as Frisco. Please hive the fans happy news that he is coming back to gh

Would love it if Jack Wagner came back… I have missed seeing him as Frisco

yesssssssssssss 100% yes……

Yes yes yes Jack needs to come back. There are so many ways Frisco can come back. He can help Robert to get Faison, help save Robin and finally reconcile with Maxie. But of couse most of all he can reunite with his true love Felicia! Its been 18 years too long!

I couldn’t agree with you more. There’s a significant amount of story to tell with many characters whose lives and development Frisco was crucial to. He’s sorely needed.

No offense as much as I loved Frisco and Felicia I would rather see the money spent on bringing Genie Francis back !

I agree!

Not sure how they should have him come back, but YES…would love to have him come back!

Anything with Kristina. Those two wrote soaphistory.
‘Frisco and Felicia 2012 ‘ would be major . Hard to believe they haven’t asked Jack back again, High ratings for sure.

exactly, let’s be honest here. I’d argue that there’s a mandate in place for a Frisco return at this point. And obviously, it’s got to be Frisco & Felicia all the way.

cant blame him for declining B&B after he and the whole Jackie M team were just sent off to soap oblivion without a proper sendoff.

Yes! It would be incredible to have Frisco back on GH working with Anna, Robert and Luke. Give them an adventure to go on! Jack Wagner was an icon from the 80s and GH would be rewarding their loyal fan base with this popular favorites return.

Prefer him on BB. Not so much for GH.

Remember him on the nighttime soap Melrose Place as Dr. Peter Burns. He had great chemistry on that show with both Heather Locklear and Lisa Rinna.

Absolutely. It would finally give Felicia something to do.

While he was great on BB, GH is where he belongs. BB was extremely disrespectful in their treatment of him and there is no reason why he cannot return to Port Charles – plenty of story to be told for Frisco Jones!

This is making me nervous. I don’t understand why all these people are coming back. It does not seem to end. Personally I do not believe that with the ratings and high audience, ABC will cancel another one. Please let that be true.

YES… but if he comes back… let Felicia stay with Mac so she doesn’t hurt him again. It would also have a bad affect on Maxie.

I agree..

He’s a fictional soapcharacterSo who cares…
All that is important is that we see that Frisco and felicia fireworks again, and exitement and chemistry. People would tune in for that.
the mac and felicia chemistry is non existent in my opinion. Nothing would be lost there.

Why? They haven’t utilized Kristina Wagner at all. A ratings burst at his return isn’t worth it if they don’t continue to write for the character after a month.

Well with Jack dating Ashley Jones it might be hard to have Jack and Kristina as a couple on GH!

well if you read the article, and Jack’s thoughts on it ,he would not find it hard at all. Actualy, he sounds exited to work next to Kristina again and I don’t see how AJ would have say in what acting choices he takes. I’m sure she isn’t be that insecure.

Absolutely, bring Jack Wagner back! A Frisco Jones return is long overdue and much desired by Frisco & Felicia fans.

sidebar: I find it curious that people are here commenting on the chemistry he had with actresses from Melrose place. Irrelevant to this discussion. and as for who he’s dating now, well, also irrelevant.
and finally, to the person who thinks Felicia should stay with Mac: I think you know better.

Would like to see Jack Wagner on GH again as Frisco..Haven’t seen him on GH for quite a long time… If he comes back he can sing one of his old tunes or even sing a new one!!!! But Felicia is with Mac now..

No Thanks

I second that.

Of course Frisco should come back to Port Charles. It doesn’t matter how they write him back into the story, just bing him back!

You need to bring more ONE LIFERS…. Def enjoying the last few days with Blair, Tea and Todd and the rest of the gang.. Can’t wait til tomorrow..

A big yes to bringing back Jack! They need to write for him, though. I was a huge Frisco and Felicia fan back in the day and I didn’t like Mac much, but I think I would rather not see F&F as a couple again, tbh. Too much has gone down over the years and they’re a divorced couple IRL now. It would feel like a regression and awkward unless it was handled with great care. Maybe a gradual reunion over time and written to perfection could work. But I would definitely love to see Jack back with Robert & co, and F&F as good friends.

Yes. Absolutely, Definitely bring Frisco back. Gh needs a hero. Robert could put in a call needing Frisco’s back to take down Faison. They were always a good team before. Robert and him could also rescue Robin and bring her home to her husband and daughter, and also to Anna. Frisco could also try to make amends with Maxie, his daughter, and be reunited with his true love, Felecia. I know she is with Mac now, and she says she is happy, but if Frisco returned. I don’t think she could keep her distance from Frisco. Mac saw their undeniable love between them before and walked away from Felecia. I think it would be interesting and surely would keep alot of fans tuned in if they would bring Frisco home to GH. The ratings would go up too… Let’s make this happen…

ONLY if there were a good story.

I would love him back, but I don’t think it is likely to happen.

No. Don’t bring him back. Felicia is barely used as it is. And I’d rather him explore a return to The Bold and the Beautiful as Nick Marone!

well, of course I’d love to have the old Frisco and Felicia, but Felicia and mac are rarely seen now… think if he came back, it would be a short stay. He could be brought back by being on a mission to oh, say, hmm, Switzerland?! :=)

maybe he’s on the tail of Faison, finds Luke in Turkey on his way…. yeah there’s always a way to bring him back.

Mr. Wagner should come back…add a bit of spice to Max and Felicia…right now..they are dullsville..let’s have some real live luke..robert…lavry and Anna…that rocks…even with the old lady cassadine coming back..she is one we love to hate…she holds mystery…love the plot with Tomas/Lorenzo really exciting…bring victor back too…glad AJ and Ned are back…Brooklyn rocks and so does Dillan…looking forward of Jason coming back…give it all you got…more…more…more

Frisco can get back with Felicia, and Mac can get back with Felicia. They’ll have to bring someone else in for Shawn…or how about Sky? I really don’t thnk Shawn/Alexis have the right chemistry (altho they tried with that “quickie” scene. Mac and Felicia are just ok; they would be better with Frisco and Alexis.. Of course, they’ll have to get Frisco involved in some “dirty” business to make it interesting

ooops…Mac can get back with Alexis

Call Jack Wagner NOW ! With Felicia, Anna, Duke, & Robert back it will be like the old days. MAKES SENCE. Get him while you can !

Would love to see Jack back on GH. He was such a main actor back in the day and GH hasn’t been the same since. Also, a Frisco/Felicia reunion would bring a lot of viewers back. Their chemistry cannot be matched!!

I would love to have Jack back on GH. The concern on this end is, will Frisco want Felicia back or will he have moved on into a new relationship? I love Felicia and Mac, so I really don’t want the writers bothering that at all. If Frisco returns, I would like to see a maturer man involved in a serious relationship with a new woman. A man who is ready to take on the issue of abandoning his children. Maxie is still on the show, so I would like to see Frisco working out the abandonment issues that have shaped her life in such a negative way.

It was never revealed who Robert called for help my money says it was Frisco.

Robert called Nikolas Cassadine for help. Robert wanted him to call Helena and lure her to PC, so that Robert could question her.

I still however feel that a Frisco return is inevitable. According to Nelson Branco, the editor of SoapUncensored, sources close to Jack Wagner are saying that he will reprise his role as Frisco pretty soon in the future.

You know who I’d LOVE to see come back to GH? BLACKIE. LOL, I know, I know…. but dang! John Stamos needs to hit PC again, if only for a short visit. Eye candy always good!

That would be quite easy actually! Especially now a/ Robert almost dead, Duke returning & his daughter Maxie pregnant! Now would be a perfect time! He could present an interesting storyline coming between Felicia & Mac! I would love to see this!

I want to see Jack Wagner SOMEWHERE in prime time television. Back with Bridgit on B and B would be great too, They made such a beautiful couple. I think B and B needs one mainstay couple. Obviously I think it should be Nick and Bridget. B and B seems to be losing its luster. Too many off-beat characters, too many stupid episodes with Liam, Steffy and Hope. Enough! Need a few happy endings here. Looks like Taylor will be leaving, too? Wht’s happening here? Will Eric be leaving, too? And Donna? Tired of seeing her long, unhappy face all the time. Let’s getr with it writers?

Jo he locked them all in the closet with Thorne why anyone would want to work for Brad Bell is beyond me! I did not want them to take one emmy because this show is awful and the games he plays every time at the emmys is disgraceful.

I drop a leave a response each time I like a article on a blog or I have
something to contribute to the conversation.

Usually it is triggered by the sincerness communicated in the post I read.

And on this post Is Jack Wagner Headed Back To General Hospital?
Or, Isn

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase Proposes to Brook Lynn; Kristina and Blaze Share a Kiss

Finally, many GH viewers got their wish, when on the Monday, December 4th episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Chase (Josh Swickard) got down on one knee (a few times) and proposed to Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton).

At first, Brook Lynn balked at his attempt as she believed Gloria (Ellen Travolta) and Lois (Rena Sofer) were pressuring him to do so. When she tells Chase marriage is off the table he pulls out an engagement ring. Chase reveals he was planning on proposing at Christmas, so he had the ring ready to go. A romantic Chase shares that he doesn’t want to waste one more day as he clearly knows what matters now … her!  With that, Chase gets back down on his knees and proposes again, and this time Brook Lynn says, “yes!” The two seal the deal with a kiss!

Molly (Kristen Vaganos) breaks the news to TJ (Tajh Bellow), that she now wants to accept her sister, Kristina’s (Kate Mansi) offer to be their surrogate, after all the failures they have been through in trying to find a candidate that will stick.  While TJ voices his concerns, he eventually comes around and tells Molly, “Let’s have a baby,” and now seems excited about the prospect of Kristina being the answer to their prayers. They seal the deal with a kiss!

Kristina and Blaze (Jacqueline Grace Lopez) get together with a bottle of champagne, since Blaze’s latest song just hit number one on the charts. During their conversation, Kristina asks what is Blaze’s real name? She reveals it’s “Alison”.


Later, Kristina opens up about her past and her abusive relationship with Keifer, her short marriage to Trey and then how she went away to college and fell for her professor Parker Forsythe (formerly Ashley Jones).  She then reveals Parker went back to her ex. However, Kristina’s takeaway was she realized she was clearly into women. That leaves the moment open for Blaze to make a move on Kristina and the two share a kiss.

So, three kisses moved the stories forward on this episode of GH. Which are you most happy about? Chase and Brook Lynn getting engaged? GH moving forward with a same-sex romance for Kristina and Blaze, or TJ and Molly coming together to agree to let Kristina be their surrogate? Three kisses, three different stories.  Let us know via the comment section below.

Finola Hughes posted her sentiments as well, “Yesterday was the leading ladies lunch for the Emmy’s. It’s a tradition started by the inimitable Susan Flannery. (The previous years winner throws a luncheon for the nominees). Yesterday was a very special lunch. Mishael Morgan raised the bar! The conversation was at once light hearted and deep. This was an amazing group of women, supportive, funny and caring. Thank you all for a brilliant few hours 💕 🌸 ✨”

Posting on their Instagram Stories were Michelle Stafford who gave us a little more behind the scenes of the luncheon, where Mishael also handed out a gift bag to each of the ladies, and Sharon Case who accompanied her photos with the tune “This One’s For the Girls” by Martina McBride.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom Shares Heartfelt Message to Mark His 30-Year Anniversary as Dr. Kevin Collins

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 30 years since back on December 3rd, 1993, when General Hospital viewers got the shock of their lives as the ABC soap opera introduced the psychiatrist twin brother of serial killer, Ryan Chamberlain, in the form of Dr. Kevin Collins.

For soap fans that meant we got to see even more of one of the finest actors ever to appear in the genre in Jon Lindstrom. The talented actor started on GH a year and half earlier in June of 1992 as Ryan.

Fast-forward to 2023 and Lindstrom is in the running for this year’s Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series when the 50th annual Daytime Emmy Awards are given out in less than two weeks on Friday night, December 15th on CBS. Could an Emmy on his 30th year playing Kevin and Ryan be in the cards? Stay tuned.

It has been well-documented that former GH creatives Wendy Riche (ex-EP), Claire Labine (ex-head writer) and Michelle Val Jean (ex-writer) were all instrumental in keeping Jon in Port Charles with a second role as Kevin, when he could have headed to As the World Turns at the time to play the role of Damian Grimaldi, that eventually went to Paolo Seganti.

Taking to his Instagram on Sunday to acknowledge this special milestone, Jon shared via video message, “I woke up this morning to see that today December 3rd, marks 30 years since I debuted as Dr. Kevin Collins on General Hospital. I knew that it had been a long time, but 30 years since the doppelgänger to Dr. Ryan Chamberlain was introduced. It really is remarkable. It’s been a great ride, a great run. it’s like an entire career right there. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. It’s just been great.”

Lindstrom paid tribute to those who helped create Kevin, expressing, “I have a lot of people to thank about that, let alone people like Wendy Riche and the brass at ABC at the time … Claire Labine who was writing the show back, but Michelle Val Jean was really was the one who I had the pleasure of working with to develop and bring to life Kevin Collins. She’s still a great friend today. So, there’s been a lot of blessings around this for me, and don’t think, I don’t know it. I pretty much drop to my knees every day in gratitude. Thank you world for supporting Dr. Kevin Collins and Ryan Chamberlain, for that matter. I’ll do it as long as they’ll have me.”

Accompanying his video, Jon wrote: “So grateful today for my 30 years of ‘Kevin Collins’ (and ‘Ryan Chamberlain’) on General Hospital, and for the wonderful journey my life has been, for my friends, my the family and incredible opportunities I’ve had. Hope you all have much to be grateful for.”

Share your congrats and well-wishes to Jon for 30 years as GH’s Dr. Kevin Collins via the comment section below.
