Great news Maxie fans! General Hospital favorite Kirsten Storms (Maxie) is returning to the ABC daytime drama series after her temporary leave.

As fans of the soap know Storms took some time off due to skin-related issues, and has been replaced by former Days of our Lives cast member Molly Burnett.

A show rep confirmed to Soap Opera Digest on Thursday that viewers can expect to see Storms back on air the first week of August.

Meanwhile, look for the month of July to heavily feature Burnett’s Maxie in story as the Maxie/Nathan/Claudette/Griffin quandrangle storyline heats up over the summer!

So, are you glad to heard Storms’ leave was a very short one from the Port Charles canvas? Comment below!

I was wondering if Kristen’s longer hair is for storyline reasons…to have her look like Bree…maybe Claudette does something Maxie gets blamed for…or Claudette slips into Nathan’s bed and he is a little drunk and mistakes her for Maxi…then Claudette is preggers and announces it just as Maxie is about to wed Nathan-you know-predictable story stuff-lol

I think she was using her hair to cover her face. You could tell she had heavy pancake makeup on, she barely turned her head and had her hair draped over one side of her face. No ponytail, etc…

yeah…i did notice that…i can understand her problem…i break out a lot!!!

I think you are right–and, yes, the heavy (and too-white) pancake makeup was evident–I felt sorry for her.

So Very Glad that Kirsten Storms will be back as Maxie real soon! Happy she is over her skin disorder. It makes me sad that Kirsten won’t be playing her part when Claudette hits the canvas though.

Short leave – I haven’t seen an episode without Kirsten yet !
Yeah I know it takes about six weeks for an episode to air that was shot today.

I read in SOD issue today

she will be out a month

just as the story is heating up

so… a month without Kirsten… and with… Molly Burnett… could be an eon

LOL

i’ll prepare for a bloodbath… ie: Jenn Lilly was cast in another of Kirsten character on another huge storyline

from what I can gather… pretty much the whole month of July is with Molly Burnett

Elizabeth

Would have vastly preferred Jen Lilly, but of course I also appreciate her role of Teresa Donovan on DOOL. Molly Burnett, less so.

Congratulations on your new contract ..that will be the next announcement

Samantha

Your sources are wrong. Lol. Kirsten has 2 more years left on her contract. Get your facts right, before you spread gossip.

davlestev1
davlestev1

Contracts can be negotiated at a studios discretion due to innumerable clauses that allow them to do so.. Daytime included.. LOL.. facts are facts.. You wanna work.. They stipulate the terms.. 2/10/50/years

I meant renegotiated

She was just temporary off to deal with the skin issues. We know she has endometriosis which can cause skin problems. I’m not going to pretend to know the ins and outs of contracts or lengths. Typically on daytime, they can get rid of you at any 13 week cycle even if you have a 10 year deal.

Elizabeth

Wish they would get a clue about Franco….

The writers lose track of characters and storylines for months, so much so, that the viewers then forget about the character/storyline. So, why was it imperative to move this storyline along with a temporary recast? Maxie could have been written to visit Georgie for an extended period of time while rethinking her relationship with Nathan. A recast, especially Molly Burnett, was not needed-IMO.

Lou Piikes

Nope!!!! That’s what happened to the Fluke storyline when TG had his back surgery. All fans did was complain about how long it took for the Fluke storyline to draw to a conclusion.

dmr

That was a terrible storyline and a rewrite of history, too. Awful!

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

Yes, we abhorred the rewrite of history/character. I thnk that sank TG’s chances of returning to GH–that, and the ungracious interview he gave.

I’m glad KS will be returning soon, as I do enjoy her performances. But…..words cannot express how much I’m dreading the “quadrangle” story, especially since it involves the introduction of yet another new character with an agenda.

rebecca1
rebecca1

Funny, I’m looking forward to it. I’m interested to see how Bree plays this character and looking forward to her interaction aith Maxie. Nathan and Maxie are long overdue for a story of their own and it involves Dr, Munro as well. Hope it will be good. I’d like fo know who Nathan’s father is already…and while we’re at it, Valerie’s!

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

We will most likely see Hayden’s father before we find out who their father is…there is also rumor Liz and Hayden are sisters…

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

Valerie is still a “blank page” as far as I am concerned–we got nothing, nada, about her background when she came in as a Spencer.

Patrick
Patrick

@JimH

I pray… to the soap gods… that that rumor lies… DOA

build and bloat the cast in and around all you want … with Hayden… as it seems unforgiveable… she’s gone south… that fast… with her dissing one too many times… thee Nicholas Cassadine

do all that.. and just leave well enough alone… any relationship ties.. to strengthen her … belong… for naught

I love… Rebecca Buddig… but hate that her 4 year contract.. is forcing the audience to watch with derision… all that she’s declared

Rebecca Herbst… as Liz Webber… is a stand alone act

the character of Liz.. having a sister.. out of nowhere.. is jarring and a gaping whole in all that is… and may well be once was… General Hospital

keep these two as formidable adversarial

Penny

YES!

Well that was fast. Her complexion looked good in the recent selfie that was posted on SOD. Now I am waiting with bated breath to hear about what’s going on with Tyler. Any more (reliable) buzz?

nancy dillingham

Yes, hmmm, I’d like to know the low down on Tyler, also.

SO glad that Kirsten will be back as Maxie!!

Celia

Yes, yes, yes; of course. Kisten IS Maxie.
I’ve noticed ( unless it’s my imagination) that Kirsten’s pallor has been so evident lately. And, that her hair mostly covered the right side of her face.
Whatever skin-allergy she has, I feel for her and so happy that it is being resolved.
I love to plant….I take pride in my flower and vegetable beds; but, this year, I developed an allergy to the garden soill and broke out in giant hives on my forearms. So….painfully itchy!! OK now.

rebecca1
rebecca1

I mentioned the same above..her “pallor” was, I believe, pancake makeup to cover her skin condition.

I heard she was allergic to bad acting? [Ryan Peavyitis!]

Awwww, Timmmbo….. Poor Nathan/Ryan….he’s got bad stuff coming down the Pike……what, with Claudette’s imminent arrival and all. Yowzah!! LOL.

Most importantly, I am so happy to hear that she is feeling better, and I look forward to her return! Wishing Kirsten the best always!

I noticed some time back that the actress playing Kristina also had some breakouts (her skin looked much better today), but she continued in her role–very brave. When one is so young, one is so self-conscious about every little thing re appearance–skin, hair, figure, etc. She is a real professional–soldiering on despite the breakouts. I felt for her also–but she looked mostly clear today. I’m glad for her.

Shell

Glad she is returning.

Diane

I’m so glad Kirsten will be back soon. She just can’t be replaced. There is nobody who can play “Maxie” the way she does. She’s a good actress and will be missed for those 6 or so weeks. I’m already looking forward to her return and she hasn’t even left yet.

Lucky

I am so happy KS is feeling better and returning. She is my favorite actress on GH and is great at playing comedy and drama. It is lucky we got this announcement before she’s even stopped airing. It will make July much easier knowing there is an end in sight. I’m sure MB will aquit herself well in the role, but KS will always be Maxie to me, and no one can replace her.

Dana

Very happy she will be back soon. Maxie is not Maxie without Kirsten.

Jillie

MEOW!!

Omar

I am the only one that finds the character of Maxie annoying and boring the last couple of years? Kirsten is a good actress and the character is better suited as a trouble making bad girl with a good heart at the end of the day..We need that Maxie back!!

Patrick
Patrick

you are not the only one… I can take her or leave her

something… the writing is not up to par… Maxie ditz with a heart of gold is not this

I hope… she is not paired … with Griffin

giving the actors who portray maxie and Nathan is all good and well… but like Lulu and Dante…

at the end of the day…. these characters will find their way back

I really am rooting for Claudette… because I’d like to see how Bree Williamson acts.

I agree with @Rebecca1… I think Nathan… is not a bad actor… of course he’s wooden … but after all this time… I still like his stuff

I once likened Morgan… as GH answer to @DAYS Rafe’alicious… now I think GH Nathan is very much like… @Rafe on DAYS.

they have a lot of screen presence… and that it factor going for them. and Nathan does have those subtle moments of how he carries himself.

LOL it’s more than easy on the eyes. I’m giving Nathan a shot. he deserves some prop… it’s not like Kirsten Storms Maxie is carrying this couple…

There’s only one Maxie and Kirsten is the one. Thanks to Molly for stepping. Not an easy job. Welcome back, Kirsten.

btw, I hope you’re feeling ok Kirsten, you’ve lost way too much weight.

Kirsten looks very gaunt and terribly thin. She doesn’t look healthy. Please Kirsten…get well soon.

Barb

When will Elizabeth get a good man? A solid guy who will love and care for her? Why is she constantly being paired w/wrecks? Bad boys? Men in love w/other women? I’m tired of it. I think that she is long overdue for a man who doens’t have crime connections, isn’t a psycho, hasn’t returned from the dead w/memory loss or men who trick her. Why you find a nice doctor who is stable mentally, emotionally and healthy in other ways? It’s time for her to have someone dependable in her life.

Intriguing casting news out of Port Charles on Sunday. The ABC daytime drama series has tapped former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star Janet Hubert to play the character of  Yvonne,who is said to be a love interest for Mike (Max Gail) at the nursing home he is now in.

Hubert’s first episode is slated to air on December 7th.   Sitcom fans remember Janet from “Fresh Prince’ in scenes with Will Smith in the series in the role of Vivian Banks.

GH is not Janet’s first soap, either.  She appeared on One Life to Live as Evangeline Williamson’s (Renee Elise Goldsberry) and Layla Williamsom’s (Tika Sumpter) mother, Lisa.  The actress also appeared on All My Children as Alice Dawson.

In another twist, Hubert will reunite with Vernee Watson (Stella)om GH.  The two appeared together on “Fresh Prince”, where Watson played Will’s mother.
