Photo: ABC

Daytime Emmy winner, Sean Blakemore is heading back to Port Charles!  News today has Blakemore being back at General Hospital in his role of Shawn Butler.

According to Soap Opera Digest, Blakemore had inked a deal with the ABC daytime drama series.  No first airdate back has been given at this time.

With Shawn back on the canvas it could certainly stir things up romantically for his ex Jordan as well as reconnect him with his biological son ,TJ.

In story, Shawn was sent to Pentonville prison for a crime he did not commit; shooting Hayden Barnes.

Blakemore took home the Supporting Actor Daytime Emmy back in 2016.

So, excited to learn Sean Blakemore is heading back to GH? Comment below.

Sounds like this return was a long-time in-the-making, as fans kept asking for Sean Blakemore to return as Shawn Butler. If I am being honest, I am indifferent to it.

this is great news, and while your at it, also bring back Hayden.

It is incredibly vexing that Hayden would just abandon her daughter and never come back. No one even mentions her anymore. I get her life was threatened with one of Nikolas’s idiotic ruses but by now, Hayden would have checked in to see if the coast is clear. Besides, she had great chemistry with Finn.

I agree with you completely. They are good at doing this type of thing as I mentioned about Sean Butler.Once the character is gone, it’s bye, bye until we need you again someday. Heyden’s been gone so long, I can barely remember the circumstances of her leaving. Hope things are well with you.

Well, it’s about time he got out of prison. Considering he didn’t even commit the crime he was accused of.

Now if I were writing this show, I would have Shawn get out of Pentonville, and not go to Port Charles immediately, but rather to visit some family members who own a bar in “Nixon Falls PA”.

Where he would unexpectedly run into his former boss, Sonny Corinthos…. who for some reason, doesn’t seem to remember him. Or anything else.

And Shawn can be the one who brings Sonny back home… since Nina clearly has no interest in doing so.

You are spot on! Sean will have ties to the folks that run The Tan-o.

The Shawn guy- just getting out of prison will have no money to speak of.
Someone will need to care for him money-wise.
He will need shelter, clothing, work, food.
But it’s a soap– He could be a prisoner millionaire lol.
Shawn will most likely go into the bar business with Curtis.

Curtis and Shawn are far from friends. That would be quite a stretch.

The sooner the better as far as I’m concerned, S. Watching Sonny/Mike make eyes at Nina is making me nauseous.

hi Soaphound-
good for Sonny/Mike to be making in on with someone other than Carly.
Sonny and Carly have been making me nauseous for years lol
I hope Sonny and Nina do the nasty, but the writers will never have that happen.
(it would be fun to watch, for sure..
Sonny and Carly haven’t had a hot kiss in years let alone
a hot bumping in bed = boring, sigh no blue pills LOL
total Grandpa and Grandpa with those two.

I think it would have to be as friends,because Phyllis came to Port Charles and would have visited TJ who is family. Being friends she may not know TJ existed but even that’s hard to believe as a friend.

Would like to bet you a few hot brimstone or whatever you use for betting that Nina will indeed waltz Sonny back into town on her arm,as her latest conquest, right in Carly’s shocked face.

Seems like there is some good reconnections coming in the near future. I love him in this role, though it will be interesting to see him interact with both Jordan and TJ since the actors portraying both of these characters have been recast since the last time that Shawn was on screen. And yes, it might be a good time for Hayden to return, especially since Finn and Liz have been sharing scenes of support for one another. Looking forward to this return:)

Also, I’m liking the pairing of Leisl Obreakt and Scottie Baldwin. They both loved Franco and may be instrumental in the return of Roger later this year.

I enjoyed watching Scott and Leisl. Also like them as a couple.

Oh Margherita, Liesl and Scotty — WOW! Who knew? I love them together and the actors seem to enjoy it also. I hope Liesl is instrumental in bringing down Peter Puke. Let’s just hope they don’t screw that up and make it all about Carly.

I love Scotty and Liesel apart and together. I hope while they are cooking the Snitzsel, they can keep the big prize in mind,getting Peter,as you say.

I am so glad he’s returning. He was a stand up guy.

This is good news. Blakemore has great onscreen presence.

I agree, Drake. Sean had great chemistry with Carly, too, and was a good friend to Molly during her PTSD issues. Beating up Franco at Sonny’s behest…not so great but I’ll forgive him that infraction. While we’re bringing people back, please get Billy Miller back. I’d be willing to lose T.J., Jordan, Gladys, Martin, Charlotte, Brook Lyn….

Shawn’s return is pretty much a guarantee that TJ and Jordan aren’t going anywhere. Though he may not recognize them, as they both look a lot different than they did when he went to prison.

About time he is going to be involved with the curtis and Jordan story I bet

It’s about time. They just locked him up and threw away the key. He was innocent and no one even fought for his release. Where was Alexas? If they meet up before he leaves Pentonville, will she say anything of importance? They were together, if only for a short time.

I hated when Sean was nolonger on the show. I can’t tell you how good it is to see him back. I hope its for a while.

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.

Share your condolences and remembrances for Annie in the comment section.  But first, check out some scenes from her time on General Hospital below.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Denise Crosby Makes a Return to General Hospital

After a major fallout with her parents, Carolyn (Denise Crosby) and Jeff Webber (William R. Moses), Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) was devastated, in particular because they concocted a plan to make her forget all about the tragic situation earlier in her life. That being, when Finn’s (Michael Easton) late wife, Reiko, fell down a flight of steps and eventually died after she struggled with Liz.

Apparently, the story is not over, when Denise Crosby reprises her role of Carolyn beginning the week of January 23rd on General Hospital.

Talking about her return in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Crosby previewed, “She (Carolyn) wants to make a connection with her daughter and try to make amends for something that is almost impossible to make amends for. She knows it could go really wrong, but she can’t live with herself if she doesn’t take the shot.”

Something tells us there is more to the story of why Carolyn could have returned to Port Charles? Any thoughts?

Let us know your theories about Elizabeth’s mother upcoming return to Port Charles in the comment section below.
