Jason Or Not, Here He Comes: Steve Burton Teases His General Hospital Return!

Courtesy/ABC

Daytime audiences are waiting to see just how Steve Burton will be integrated back into the General Hospital canvas, and just who he will end up playing.

Will he be the original Jason, we all came to know and love, or will he be a different character, or will Port Charles have two different Jason’s as residents?

Burton took to Instagram to share one of his all-time favorite pics of Jason in action while posting this message as a tease to his followers and fans: “One of my favorite shots from the @generalhospitalabc set years ago! Will I play this guy again???? Tune in to see #gh #jasonornot #boom #mustsee

Meanwhile in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on sale this week, GH head writers, Shelly Altman and Jean Passanante confirm that Billy Miller is on the canvas and in this upcoming big storyline along with Burton.

Passanante noted: “It’s sort of a great puzzle that requires figuring out. We certainly want to get the most out of it! We know hoe important Steve is to the viewers and to us, and it’s a challenge to figure out how to get the most out of (his return) that we possibly can.

Burton’s first Gh airdate is yet to be revealed.  Stay tuned.

So, Jason or Not? Who will Steve Burton ultimately play when he returns on-air at GH! Share your latest thoughts on the subject in the comment section below!

Enough about this soaphopper! They act like this is like a Biblical resurrection. To me, he’s a second tier actor who’s been way overhyped. I don’t dislike him, but he gets too much attention. But as long as they keep Billy Miller also, I’ll keep watching.

Amen! I was never a fan of Stone Cold Jason and thought he was overhyped, as you said.
Not that I “like” Billy as Jason, but I think that has more to do with his pairing with Kelly/Sam. I don’t care for the couple at all!
I always thought they should have brought Billy on as a new character rather than resurrect Jason. That character wasn’t needed IMHO.

I agree, do not see chemistry between Billy and Kelly. The other two were steamy…their Chinese wedding was my all time favorite.

Billy is fine but…I am ok with Steve being Nickolas. That would be fun, but based on the tweet. It has to be a lame twin thing

Soap Hopper ? LOL You do realize Billy hopped from AMC to YR to GH. Kelly hopped from PC to GH. Laura hopped from Loving to The City to GL to GH. Mo from AMC to GH.

LMAO!

Yes, Scola, I do realize that and there’s nothing wrong with it. But Billy and many others were honest about pursuing other acting jobs, which their contracts don’t always allow enough time for (though some seem more flexible than others). Mr. Burton’s reasons always carry this noble air of spending time with family or pursuing non-acting jobs. I think that’s what annoys me. That, and all the hype. But, I’m sure he’s a nice guy and let’s hope this all leads to a good story for Steve AND Billy fans.

Burton is indeed a soaphopper, very well put, Soaphound! I’m uninterested in what role he plays on the show as long as he isn’t brought in to squeeze out Billy. Jason’s character is much more human and likeable with Billy playing it. Maybe he’ll play Screwball Amy’s brother we’ve been hearing about. That storyline element to the Ask Man Landers plot needs to either move or be buried. Or maybe Steve will play someone whose advice from Man Landers didn’t work out and he’s come to seek revenge. Anything’s possible on this show…

Lin Herz
Guest

I totally agree with Max Daddy. I like the new character of Jason better, and liked him even better before he remembered his previous life. I don’t like Ask Man landers either. It would not be allowed to have that name and too chancey for a police officer. I hope Steve Burton is not Jason.

I agree with you. I’m a little tired of SB constantly baiting and switching. This whole — I want to spend time with my family and do other projects – crap. Just say I’m moving on to explore other acting options and leave it at that. Was relieved when he left the show. Was disappointed they decided they had to resurrect Jason in the form of Billy. Am really sad SB is returning.

And worst of all this probably means twitchy Spenelli is going to be brought back to express awe and thrill that Jason is back.

Exactly! Also, I must say I’m quite disappointed in fans for being so cruel. Steve burton created Jason Morgan which in turn gave us 2 decades of fantastic storylines and action! That was my favorite part of GH. Without Steve perfecting this role there would be no billy miller. There would be no jasam, or sason or jarly etc. billy miller was an excellent choice for a Jason Morgan fill in. I love billy miller as well but I don’t know if I can watch Steve play anyone else but Jason.to me he will always be Jason Morgan. I’m hoping… Read more »

Amy, you said it it better than I could. My suspicions get aroused lately because of Y&R’s recent release of the great Greg Rikaart. It seems no one is immune to the whims of the often out-of-touch writers/producers. As long as Billy is staying too, let’s give it a chance. Who knows, it might be fun.

I truly want Billy Miller – OUT – of the Corinthos’ Orbit. so let Steve Burton be Jason. how stone cold ? old sexy blue eyes with stamina left to hold his gun yah yah. thereby Kelly Monaco’ Sam can go back to hiding behind her savior. Billy Miller and Rebecca Herbst ( Jake Doe and Liz ) can get reacquainted… let that romance start again. Put the Quartermainia on notice…. Jason Quartermaine is coming home. he’s the doctor son… Monica dreamed for her and Alan.. and dear old dad Edward… Lila… on and on.. I can cry Happy ending…… Read more »

Regardless of who he plays, I hope the story will be gripping and exciting because up until recently, GH has been pretty bland. Sam shooting Sonny, Spencer’s kidnapping and Valentin’s return have shaken things up, so hopefully the momentum continues with this story. I also hope they find a way to keep both Miller and Burton on the show long-term.

Also, I was wondering, since Jean P was mentioned in the article does that mean she is still writing at GH? When does she wrap up her role, and when do the shows she’s credited on stop airing?

Patrick

I readily agree.. that things get shaken up … and one can hope for momentum.

I so agree, while Billy Miller has been playing Jason 2.0 as Jason Light. I love him and he has done an awesome job. We know Steve left Y&R because JiFP was let go, so he decided to come home to GH. What ever the plans are for Steve Burton’s return , I am hoping that its a great story, I actually miss ” Stone Cold” because, Sonny needs him , but Steve could certainly come back as that long lost twin, that was being introduced when Roger ( Franco ) first came.

If you look at that picture of Steve, his eyes are brown. I think Steve will come back as a new character. Either one of many of Sonny’s enemies or a new mob boss. Which would make me very happy. Billy needs to keep being Jason Morgan, him and Kelly’s chemistry is off the charts. We only need one Jason and that is Billy. Steve left the role as Jason and I do not feel he should be able to walk right back into that role

Thank u Jackie! I soo agree. Everyone seems to have forgotten that Steve made his decision a few years ago to leave GH to be with his family. That was pretty devastating to most of his fans.

They should not have resigned Miller, if they knew there was a chance of getting Burton back. He IS Jason Quartermaine, and not Miller. He never was and never will be for me. I’ve heard a rumor that SB will be Jason’s twin. My answer to that is BULL… Susan Moore did not give birth to twins. I watched her carry the baby, and give birth. There was no second child, so if the current writing team change history, I more than likely will not watch on the days that storyline is running. It will be ugly, and I won’t… Read more »

No thanks. The Jason role is already filled. Steve decided to leave, his role is not available anymore. We have a Jason already, we don’t need another one. Didn’t the 2 todds bullshit get OLTL cancelled? Stop with the stunt casting and tighten up the ship you already have.

Erin, too funny, loved the post! Although Jason 2.0, or “mumbles” as some have suggested (sorry, don’t usually go there, but also can’t disagree), doesn’t do it for me. While 2.0 has been a very capable, proficient portrayal, I’d still rather have SB in the role. TPTB have a lot riding on this, so it will be interesting to see what they do with it.

Thank you for stating your opinion in a respectful way, people have been REALLY nasty lately. I definitely don’t begrudge anyone that prefers Steve. Heck, I was a rabid old school JaSam fan from the start. But for me, Steve chose to leave. I embraced Billy and have been invested in his portrayal for 3 years now. Saying he was never Jason does a ton of harm to the history of JaSam in my eyes, and I am not ok with that. But again, I respect the people that want Steve back as Jason. I just don’t agree.

Erin, yes, the GH “Women on the Edge” thread of 7/24 was not the finest moment for a number of us—very bad form! I’ll even retract my “mumbles” comment of earlier because that wasn’t fair. I suspect if I just watched my show without consulting this site, I wouldn’t have these opinions and wouldn’t be viewing with a critical eye to validate the opinions of others. And maybe I should get watching, since I’m still on April episodes! Just watched Sonny call Carly a slut and suggest that she spreads her legs too easily. Not bad, a little crass for… Read more »

Nikolas Cassadine’s body has never been found, thus in the soap world he is only presumed dead. Perhaps Steve Burton is going to now play Nikolas? If so then Sam could have delusions that he is really Jason Morgan (while all others ignore that is the character he used to portray). We have been led to believe that Sam is ill from a so far unknown cause. Her delusions could be combination of a physical ailment (her high fever), mental (her Aunt Olivia Jerome was nuts), and heredity (she is a Cassadine descendant).

Steve Burton will be Jason Morgan in eyes. I don’t expect anything that that Billy has done as Jason Morgan because of the writers haven’t been writing Jason Morgan since he took the Role. It had nothing to do with Billy acting talent. He just playing Jason. I’m very disappointed in fans that are showing blatant disrespect for Steve Burton who has played the Jason Morgan roll for 21 years. Billy Miller wouldn’t have the chance to play Jason Morgan if Steve didn’t play Jason Morgan. You cannot erase 21 years of history that Jason a.k.a. Stone call was played… Read more »

To be honest, I just can’t see Steve Burton playing anyone but Jason if they plan to keep him around long-term. I will have a very hard time accepting him as anyone else because he played Jason for SO long, and it’s only been a few years since his exit. I have a feeling Burton will turn out to be the real Jason who has been kept as a hostage by the Cassadine’s all the time, and Billy Miller will be a brainwashed A.J. who was also kidnapped by the Cassadine’s following his “death,” made to believe he was Jason,… Read more »

I think that Steve Burton is going to play a doctor of some sort. (This is something I can live with). Perhaps he’ll play Sam’s doctor.

And I really want Billy Miller to stay and continue being Jason because he’s doing a great job in that role.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

Courtesy/ABC

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

General Hospital Alum Annie Wersching Dead at 45

In very sad news on Sunday, actress Annie Wersching, who starred in the series 24, Bosch and Timeless, and portrayed Amelia Joffe on General Hospital, passed away this morning from cancer.  Annie was only 45-years-0ld.

Deadline broke the news of Annie’s death.  In a statement, Wersching’s husband, actor Stephen Full, shared: “There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it. She found wonder in the simplest moment. She didn’t require music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And find it we shall. As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…’ ”

Wersching’s first major role came as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital.  She played the role from May to September of 2007.  Amelia came to Port Charles to seek revenge on Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and wound up lovers with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Later, she went on to star as Renee Walker in Seasons 7 and 8 of 24.  She also appeared in The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, and The Rookie.  One of her last roles was in Star Trek: Picard which came two decades after she made her screen acting debut in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.

Annie is survived by her husband and children children Freddie, 12; Ozzie, and Archie, 4.

Kelly Thiebaud Opens Up on Her Exit from General Hospital, Taping Britt’s Tragic Death Scenes, and Parting Thoughts on Co-Stars

Just a few weeks ago on the January 4th episode of General Hospital, viewers were left devastated when Dr. Britt Westbourne succumbed to a fatal poisoning after a confrontation with ‘The Hook’.

While it was revealed that Daytime Emmy winner, Kelly Thiebaud, was exiting the ABC soap opera at the end of 2022, many thought the story would see Britt leaving Port Charles to deal with her declining health due to Huntington’s Disease in private, in order to keep the door open for a possible return down the line.  However, that was not meant to be.  When a report from Deadline surfaced back in August of 2022, it indicated that Kelly was returning to her primetime role on ABC’s Station 19, which caused some confusion and rumors of just what would Thiebaud’s ultimate status be with the daytime drama series.

Photo: ABC

Now, in a very special exit interview for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Kelly chats with Michael Fairman and clarifies what led to her decision to leave her role as Dr. Britt Westbourne.

Talking with Fairman direct from London, Kelly, who won a Daytime Emmy in 2022 for the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, reveals how it came to pass that GH would kill-off the character of Britt by becoming another victim of ‘The Hook’, and more.

Photo: KThiebaudIG

During the conversation, Thiebaud shares her thoughts on working with her former GH co-stars including: Steve Burton (ex-Jason), Parry Shen (Brad), Kirsten Storms (Maxie), Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Cassandra James (Terry), Roger Howarth (Austin) and Josh Kelly (Cody), as well as some of her favorite memories throughout her run on the series which began in 2012.

Photo: ABC

Kelly took the character from being the manipulative ‘Britch’ as an interloper in the romance of Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), all the way to becoming a well-loved character to root for.

Courtesy/ABC

While, GH viewers witnessed Britt’s shocking death scenes, Kelly weighs-in on taping those moments, as well as Britt’s emotional goodbye birthday party, and having the opportunity to portray a character who was trying to navigate her life, while suffering from the effects of Huntington’s Disease.

In addition, Thiebaud gives a very special ‘thank you’ and shout out to the fans for their enduring support as she looks forward to new roles and new adventures ahead.
