Fans have been asking for this, and now they will finally get to see one of the those most beloved characters of all-time on General Hospital again, when Jackie Zeman returns in the role of Bobbie Spencer!

With Laura, Scotty, Luke and everyone else from the past on the canvas shortly, this is a perfect time for Nurse Bobbie to make an appearance.   The big question is; will we finally get to see some more scenes between Bobbie and her daughter, Carly played by Laura Wright?

Zeman posted a message to her fans on her facebook page just an hour ago about her comeback stating:  “Bobbie Spencer is coming back to GH soon.  I am very happy to be invited and I’m looking forward to what lies ahead.  Thank you so much to all of you for your good wishes and positive thoughts. xoxox”

So what do you think about the news of Jackie returning to GH?  Let us know!

She should come back and have Bobbi in scenes with Carly. I also like to see her and Luke talk fond memories about their late Aunt Ruby. Also i hope the 50th anniversary pays tribute to the late John Bernidino(Steve Hardy)and the late Emily MCloughin
(Jessie Brewer) who were so much part of GH’s rich history.

Amen to that!!! I love that idea! I am so happy she is coming back. WOO-HOO!!

I agree also. I miss all the characters that were on GH in 1970 when I started watching. I’m enjoying seeing some of them again. I can’t wait to see Bobby’s return.

I remember when Mark Hamill of Star Wars fame played on GH as Jessie Brewer’s nephew. It would have been a nice touch to the 50th anniversary show if they were to play tribute to Jessie(played by the late Emily) if they could get Mark to reprise his role of Jessie’s nephew for a least a couple scenes. It would be fun to see a few long forgotten characters that predate the Luke and Laura era for some of old geezers who fondly remember them.

Judith

Yes. I agree. John Beradino and Emily McLaughlin need to be recognized as they were on GH from Day 1.

HAHAHAHAHA…She’s always been big busted but I never was sure if they real or not. I am looking forward to Bobbi/Carly, Bobbi/Felcia and Bobbi/Luke scenes!!

Christy
Christy

um yeah, they were always there that I remember! ha!

She was a Playboy Bunny at the Playboy Club in early 70’s… they had to fill out those costumes you know! 🙂

mo

Ha Ha Maybe pushup. But they don’t look completely natural at any rate.

gloria

She has had WAAAY too much work done on her face & her chest. She didn’t need to do all that. Glad she is coming back though. I have always thought GH dropped the ball by not developing a relationship between her & Carly & Carly’s kids-along with Luke & his kids. I love the Spencers!

Lynn

I remember Bobbie always being voluptuous. as she was a regular cast member on GH in the early 80’s She might have a push up on nonetheless, she’s a very striking woman.

Patrick

Now GH is Complete…. Scotty and Bobbie….. YUM!

I have missed Bobbie and Carly scenes for so long! It was a big mistake for past regimes to write Bobbie off of the canvas. She was the one that grounded Carly, who always saw through Carly’s bs. Yes, Carly had Jason but I always missed Bobbie’s influence, especially when Carly ended her marriage to Jax. And her scenes with Luke were always poignant.

Brian Tripp

I have no idea why Bobbie has not been in PC. Are they going to tell us where she has been? She has grandchildren in town and her daughter needs her. I hope that her son Lucas comes home too.

mo

Nice. I think GH treated her shabbily.

GH, if it continues to rebuild its core characters and legacy families, Port Charles could become like a real soap town again… like Oakdale (ATWT). Those connections, histories, and today’s issues befalling us from economy to social justice to war, make for good drama and creat the solid foundation for the sotrytelling we love so much.

Welcome home, Bobbie!

Nice!

Great news!!! Let’s get her in scenes with Luke and Carly for sure along with Scottie and Laura! Oh.. and Lucy and Michael too!

Shelly

Yay!!! She definately needs to interact with Carly. Carly has no direction and focus. Maybe Mom can smack some sense into her.

Now I love it that GH is bringing back the vets. But I hope ABC isn’t setting us up for disappointment, waiting for Katie to establish more of a foot hold on the afternoon lineup (still overhyped!!).

I love and miss the character of Bobbie Spencer. However I do not like what Jackie Zeman has done to her body and her face. It wasn’t necessary and makes her look like a clown.

i hope they don’t make it look like she’s been in town all this time, because if she has, then why hasn’t she been seen. no one ever said she moved? so i hope its explained.

Never liked Bobby and instead of hiring these Seniors, how about hiring some young folks. The NB is bullshit.

Another storyline for Carly? Hmmm… No thanks. Let her have her own storyline.

And whatever you do, DON’T kill off the character. Like the way Alison returned just to be killed 2 episodes later.

WTG GH! Do you realize how many of us baby boomers watched GH in the 70’s 80’s even into the 90’s before internet & work took over. We are coming back and so are you! Bringing back all those loved ones will help us pick up the show and start watching again during either over the internet or when we retire! Thank you for making this happen! GH ratings are going to shoot thru the roof again! Good job! Can’t wait to see them all back on the screen!

This is how it should play out: Bobbie visits from Seattle where she has been living. Reuinites with Luke and Carly (in separate scenes) updates us on Lucas. He’s now a nurse as well working in Seattle. She must visit BJ and Tony (this is where we can find out about Lucas) at the cemetary and maybe bump into Felicia so they can reminisce about the BJ/Maxie heart transplant story. Bobbie will also have a run in with Laura who is also returning to discuss Amy, Laura’s sister who has since died offscreen. I’m mean who could forget hospital gossip Amy Vining? Especially since Amy was so important in the Nurse’s Ball as Lucy’s dresser. Shell Kepler deserves some kind of tribute. Bobbie also has alot of unfinished business with Monica. Monica’s grandson Jake died and saved the life of Bobbie’s granddaughter Joslyn. Both characters were not around when this lightning fast tale was told so they both need to talk about it.

gloria

Excellent ideas Martin. I would love to see all of this play out. And remember when Michael was in the coma, his blood grandmothers are Monica & Bobbie & neither one of them was at his bedside. They were not involved at all. It drove me crazy. They are so connected by history & family & this relationship has been totally ignored! I didn’t even THINK about the Jake/Joslyn connection. WOW.

martin RN

Unfortunately this is how it will play out: Bobbie does a walk on in her own clothes and hospital badge at the hospital where it appears she has never left Port Charles at all and has always “been there.” She has two lines, her pager goes off and she says, “I have to take this” and exits stage left. Never to be seen again. I hate was GH has done to Bobbie Spencer.

Violet
Violet

Unfortunately, I think it will play out to be something like that. My thought was that she shows up for the Nurses Ball for hugs and smiles with other characters while saying a few lines, then she just magically poofs again into thin air never to be seen from, spoken about, or heard from again as she has been for years.

I want her back to say. She doesn’t have to be on everyday, but she NEEDS to be part of the hospital staff and to act like Carly’s mother. Michael needs a grandma. Well, so do Carly’s other kids except we haven’t seen them in around lately. (They need to recast that horrible actress playing Jocelyn. )

Welcome back, Jackie!

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.”

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Robert Drowns His Sorrows Over Holly's Death; Sonny Poses A Heartbreaking Question To Mike

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.
