Those wishing for the return of Scott Baldwin to General Hospital, looks like you will be granted your wish!  With the news that Genie Francis (Laura) is returning to the ABC soap for a story for the 50th Anniversary in April, now comes word on the situation from none other than former GH star, Billy Warlock (Ex-A.J. Quartermaine)!

Warlock revealed the news on a tweet today stating,  “Good morning all! As you know my buddy Jon Lindtrom is back on GH and now Kin Shriner is going back. Please give them lots of support.Thnx!”

The timing for the return could not be better, as when we last saw Scott Baldwin fans believed he joined the flight that took Laura to Paris.  In addition, Shriner has a huge on-screen past with Lynn Herring (Lucy) and the incoming Jon Lindstrom (Kevin), and assorted others on the Port Charles canvas?

Happy about news of Kin’s return? Let us know!

Wow! I never thought it would happen! Now if Todd and John do leave GH they need to keep Lucy, Kevin, and Scotty (along with Laura of course). Its time to keep the big guns and write them true to character and really exciting story!

Who cares if the cast is huge. I like the larger cast with well developed storylines. It is a million times better than watching a 24/7 Sonny fest!!!

GH is smokin HOT!!! Keep up the Excellent work RV/RC!!!

It’s actually FV and the cast is way too large to give each character their owns storyline. But whatever…

I have never seen GH before but I used to watch Port Charles. I may have to tune in to see what Lucy Scotty and Kevin are up to. I heard also Livvie might be on too. Hopefully Serena will come back too, she must be all grown up by now! Oh, and bring on Eve and Chris too.

AAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand another one. Fantastic. Where are they going to put all of them? How are they going to evenly use all of them, and effectively? What are the longterm goals for them (or are they just for show)? And now that there’s bringing back so many oldies, what about all the other favourites that aren’t getting the invite (Ric, Bobbie, Alan, Sean, Tiffany, Holly, Stefan, Jax, Tony Jones, Lucas Jones, Emily etc etc)? Why do these favourites get a return when so many others with so many fans get left out?

All this news makes me more nervous than excited. If the purpose of their returns is for the 50th Anniversary, then once that’s over, it’s back to same old-same old. If not, then I have a ton more questions I’d like to propose.

DAYS brought back tons of characters in 2011, only to have to say goodbye to many of them. A show can’t sustain itself on star power if the work surrounding it is a mess. And how lovely those faces are, but this is sounding more and more like a mess to me.

Hope they pair up Scotty & Laura and let Luke play “Dirty Daddy” to Ethan.

I do not think that will happen unless Geary is going to finally retire to Amsterdam cause let’s face it he is off more then he is on and the excuses are getting more stupid by the minute.

I absolutely LOVE all these vets coming home, and for those who wonder where the money to pay these actors is coming from, I would assume with how spreadout the storylines and the screentime is divided up, that there is money enough to go aroud as FV/RC never play just any one certain group. These days, GH is an embarrassment of riches and I for one, couldn’t be happier!!!! I only hope that Scotty will have Serena with him!!! She should be an adult by now and I can’t wait to see him mix it up with Luke/Laura and Lucy/Kevin. These actors MADE GH what it is today and I hope they stick around. Now if FV/RC can lure Vanessa Marcil home, my prayers would REALLY be answered!!! Her 2010 return was botched and I think the writers could def repair it!!!! It wouldn’t even be a stretch to believe that her lil boy might actually be Sonny’s and she left town in actuality to keep him safe!!!! The only other ones I would see interested in returning is Nick Wagner(frisco), John Stamos(blackie), and Jacklyn Zeman(bobbie) would that be too much?? Lol……..;) God I wish they could undo Alan and Emily Quartermaine’s deaths!! 🙁

I would love to see all the original characters back on One Life To Live, Star, John, and Todd were very important to OLTL. If they cannot get out of their contracts entirely, since General Hospital has such a huge cast, they could probably due both shows until they see what happens to OLTL.

James DePavia was such an important character on OLTL years ago, why not bring him back to play Blairs husband or boyfriend. They had such great chemistry together.

I’m sooo happy to have Kin Shriner coming back to Gen Hosp – along with Jon Linstrom. Lucy Coe has added a lot to the soap since her return. I miss the Vets who had been on GH for so long – and it would be nice to have Jackie Zeman return as Bobbie. Genie Francis is on her way – and I can see good days ahead for Port Charles!!!!!! Bring em all home to GH – we fans can’t wait!!!!!!

California Gov. Gavin Newsom Reveals TV & Film Production Restart June 12th; But May Not Include LA County

There was some significant signs that Hollywood and the state of California’s show business production looks to be gearing up for a restart after all TV and film production was halted a few months ago as the coronavirus pandemic hit the state, our country, and the globe.

The reopening for production may not include L.A. County, however, which is the epicenter of the state’s show business production.

According to Deadline: On Friday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that the state could begin TV and film production as early as June 12th.  While the California Department of Public Health released the following guidelines:  “Music, TV and film production may resume in California, recommended no sooner than June 12, 2020 and subject to approval by county public health officers within the jurisdictions of operations following their review of local epidemiological data including cases per 100,000 population, rate of test positivity, and local preparedness to support a health care surge, vulnerable populations, contact tracing and testing. To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, productions, cast, crew and other industry workers should abide by safety protocols agreed by labor and management, which may be further enhanced by county public health officers. Back office staff and management should adhere to Office Workspace guidelines published by the California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Industrial Relations, to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.”

For LA County,  on Friday, the same day the guidelines were announced they saw a slight increase in hospitalizations, which could cause delays in getting production started.  “This has been a slight increase over the last three days in the number of people hospitalized,” said Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer, “and we’ll need to make sure that we’re not starting to see a significant increase in the number of people requiring hospitalizations.”

Newsom has said modifications to regional guidance would be allowed so long as there are attestations at the county level that there are adequate plans in place should a rise in COVID cases be seen again.   As of May 18, when L.A. filed its attestation, the county had a stable or declining number of patients hospitalized for COVID-19.   However, there has been an uptick in cases as of Friday which could effect the production restart in Hollywood as well as the noted uptick in hospitalizations; all of which are measures in the protocol guidelines that need to be on the decline for things to move forward.

So the question remains: if there is a surge in Los Angeles in COVID-19 cases production could again be delayed getting started back up and running? So what do you think about the June 12th date for the state of California to start TV and film production? Do you hope your favorite soaps get back into production as soon as possible, or do you want to make extra sure that all your favorites will be safe and sound when they tape new episodes?

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.
