On Monday, the official General Hospital social media accounts announced that two-time Daytime Emmy winner Steve Burton has reported back to work at the ABC daytime drama series.

Burton, who previously played the role of Jason Morgan before his decision to leave the series after 22 years, and then sign with The Young and the Restless for the last four years, is back in Port Charles.

Now, just who will he be revealed to be playing when the story unfolds in the coming months?

GH Twitter teased: “You guys aren’t even ready for what’s to come. @1SteveBurton #GH #BackToWork,” is how the show captioned the pic..

So, excited to hear Steve is back in the house, and soon will be seen in upcoming episodes of GH? ? Comment below!

Ava is the real Julian! (once she gets his face after the surgery!) hahaha! Then Julian (the real Jason ala jimh) will have to get his original face back…ala Steve Burton…and Billy, who is the real AJ…well, if Sean’s not coming back…Billy can keep his own face!

Jimh

and Carly is really Ava-lol

Guess this means we’ll have to wait 4-6 weeks before he shows up on screen.

On Monday’s episode, Miller (in his scenes with Sam) had his styled very much like Burton’s. I’m assuming those were shot after the July hiatus. In his scenes with Julian, his hair was the way it’s been all year (which were probably shot in June, just before WdV’s contract break started.

Kevin

That same thought crossed my mind, as well: his hair reminded me of the old Jason, wondered if it was to play into the upcoming storyline – or just playing with my mind, LOL!

I caught the hair switch also and can only say, “Stop cutting that gorgeous hair so Short! Leave the crew cut look to SB.”

Steve Burton’s new doctor character is also connected to the return of Nicholos Cassidine(played by the actor-forgot his name-who replaced Tyler)…he is the doctor who has been treating him!!!

Jimh..Like this way of getting Nik back…I really liked Nik Stabile, especially with Ava.

That’s the only scenario with SB coming back that I could be OK with. If it were to mean Nick Stabile coming back on the canvass, bring SB on for a very short arc. Then he can move on to Days, LOL!

I would love for Steve Burton to be playing a doctor! That would bring another doctor on the canvas at General HOSPITAL, and that would solidify his past as a Quartermaine, while in medical school (before the accident).

Actually there have been 3 actors to play Nicholas,Tyler,Nick Stable and Tyler’s first replacement Colton Scott aka Stephen Martines.

It will be the same doctor who gave valentine his makeover and the same one that eventually Ava will also use to make her all pretty again.

I’m beyond thrilled that he’s back. What I worry about is the writers to give him a good storyline with a real payoff.

“Now, just who will he be revealed to be playing when the story unfolds in the coming months?”

If he isn’t Jason Morgan, there’s no point to his return. Steve is Jason, Billy isn’t. Steve on canvas as a different character and Billy running around trying to be Jason? That will be a disaster.

Jimh

I hope neither one is Jason…

After the way Ron Carlivati publicly treated Sean Kanaan (AJ) I don’t care one way or the other. I’ll always add my viewing percentage to the ratings but he could have stayed gone as far as I’m concerned. He does NOT define GH!!

It seems as though there are a lot of people who like Billy Miller as Jason with Sam (I have no preference, since I am not a fan of Monotone Sam). It would be funny to see if Steve Burton is finally paired with Rebecca Herbst. Jason and Elizabeth have always had a strong following. Again, I don’t really have a preference. I find Elizabeth dull and boring. I would like Steve Burton to return as a doctor. That would give a shout-out to his Quartermaine roots. Jason Quartermaine went to medical school before the accident. I actually like Steve Burton. I just grew tired of the mobcentric storylines, and Sonny, Carly, Jason and Sam on every day, practically.

To answer your question if I am excited that Steve Burton is back? Nope.

Is there any way Susan Moore had another child? I can’t figure this one out so this would be the only guess i can give.

Steve
Steve

Since it’s been a few months, I’ll post my wishful storyline here.

Susan could have had twins as Heather alluded to when it was believed Franco was the twin. Steve Burton would come back as the child who was born and grew up as Jason Quartermaine. Shortly after the car accident with a drunken AJ, Jason Q was switched with his birth twin. When this guy awoke from his coma, he had no memories of his previous life nor those of Jason Q. This twin didn’t relate to the quirks and demands of being a Quartermaine — thus creating Jason Morgan, whose face was reconstructed (Billy Miller) after Ava run into him in yet another car accident.

Burton returns as JQ who has been either held or in a coma for over 20 years. Miller is JM who is the father of both of Sam’s kids. Burton would connect with Monica and Ned as the only family he remembered. In my wildest dreams, he would detest Sonny for what he did to AJ.

James R. Poissant

Hey, you—now that Ron is long gone from writing for GH, do you think you could take over the post as head writer? I love the way you think and I bet you could spin some good stories!!! You had me with the story you just pitched to me!!!

Timmm

I love this idea Steve but this writing team could NEVER pull this brilliant idea off!

They tried to pass Franco off as his twin but they are only second. Cousins I think so who knows .

I had to think strongly on that one because my mind is going on me. I remembered that Heather and Scotty are Franco’s parents. Gotta be a case of turning 51 in a few days!!!

Thanks James and Timmm. I also have game changing storylines for Maurice Bernard and Chad Duell as well.

I see Steve as a deserter..
and he lied about leaving to be with family but went to Y&R.
I could careless that he back or whom he will be.
If it were my house I’d tell him to get out.

for those that are happy he is back, enjoy .. I hope you won’t be disappointed..

I’m more excited about this, than Steve’s return;

Actor Wayne Knight, known for his role as Seinfeld’s postal service worker, Newman, is heading to The Young and the Restless.
Wednesday, September 20, and Thursday, September 21.
Now, that will be fun and interesting..

Just like Luke, he was always more interesting and easier to write for. IF Genie were to become the Godmother of PC and take Sonny down, she has a chance, other than something that ridiculous, her days have past her by because of her character, not her age. Maura and Nancy have done quite well.

Timmm

Ah, the planets are realigned, welcome back Steve! I am not a fan of Billy Miller’s Jason BUT I do think Steve should play a different character AND I bet Steve would also like a different challenge. I like him being the real Julian Jerome BUT he may be too young AND I couldnt and wouldnt want to see him locking lips with Alexis! BUT, the real Julian wouldnt have a current relationship with Alexis. BUT Steve would be Sam’s father and that wouldnt fly! I bet one thing is for sure, him and Maurice are boys so it has to be a character that is connected to Sonny Boy! Maybe a whole new character that is coming to PC to take over the crime scene? Either way, theses writers are not cable of handling strong characters. LOOK OUT!

Rhonda
Rhonda

Timm, I pretty much agree with you.
I love Billy Miller but think he was completely miscast as Jason. He should have been some long lost Q.
The way I look at Miller is the same way I look at Roger Howarth who was also miscast and what followed was writing unworthy of his talents.
I am a fan of both Billy’s and Roger’s but I am afraid when they are on the screen I am not paying much attention

Shay

@Timmm…..I honestly fail to see why so many have their knickers in a twist over Steve Burton’s return to GH….at least there is some sense of mystery and intrigue over who he will portray, and given that he is originally a GH actor simply coming back to the home roost, I find this overblown brouhaha regarding him to be really rather pointless. Before having a collective hissyfit, shouldn’t we see what his storyline is all about? I realize GH has a truly deplorable recent track record on such matters, but I’m willing to take a wait-and-see-attitude before automatically giving his upcoming Port Charles arrival a thumbs-down. As for his connection to “Sonny Boy” and, by extension, Carly? If it were to prove non-existent this time around, I would give brownie points to the writers on that basis alone!

kmayne

Burton basically left GH for Y&R to follow his favorite producer Phelps. When she was dismissed some speculated that Burton would leave Y&R when his contract was up. And here we are……GH has some great actors on the canvas that they could not seem to do anything with and yet they bring back Burton and let go Budig to help offset the cost of having Burton back.

I hope that Miller does not loose his part on GH a few weeks into Burton return.

Iakovos

Is it too much to ask that we accept Mr. Burton as a popular actor in the GH universe, and he returns to the cast in a new role or as a recast in a legacy role long written off the canvas (Tommy Baldwin, Steven Lars Webber). I, for one, cannot stomach more mystery, plastic surgery, resurrection stiff. Any more only serves to make the whole enterprise seem foolish. That all said, I am sure the desired end game for current fans is he is Jason returned but what does that mean for nuJason and all those who believed it was him. It is all too much lately. One more thing… I liked Mr. Burton as Dylan on Y&R and I thought his work in the last year was very good. Dylan as Paul and Nikki’s son provided a vital tonal and moral counterpoint to the rest of the Newmans who, thanks Victor, always seem sour and unhappy.

“…You guys aren’t even ready for what’s to come. ”

Steve Burton, Indeed

this is so charged and replete with : all hands on… no holds barred … any thing goes

1. first and foremost… I’d like to give ALL posters a high 5 SALUTE

this site IS General Hospital. LOL

my mind truly draws blanks on the current state of OUR beloved GH

of course their are glimpses of GH. Liz , Monica , Bobbi , Mac, Kevin, Laura, Felicia

there is a long history. Your posts knock me out with your recall.

whew – this is teary eyed

OK I’ve gone over the edge on my constant dullard (s) . why is asking for BALANCE of the whole cast so trying.

I feel insulted by his marquee… is there something we posters have forgotten . yeah, i’m going to slide in their… and stand with the audience.

i’m not even mad that he is returning. i’m also, not even the least bit interested. if it turns out this is far more than we imagined… then I will step up to the plate. Steve Burton is generating his self worth with his proclamation

“You guys aren’t even ready for what’s to come. ”

barf. thank you @Shay for the bags

I draw blanks and well up with emotion at the state of affairs @GH

I watched Valentin and Charlotte having lunch when Ava comes in with Kiki and Griffin

I am really enjoying this storyline. I hope this connection with Valentin Ava and Griffin and Charlotte and Kiki… get a nice long run with this stuff.

that’s about it.

what can Steve Burton acting skill be so far out their that we will never be ready?

OH let me put out their that the NEW Doctor as played by James DePaiva. is some sexy isn’t he

caught me off guard that he asked the commish (Jordan) for a movie and drink. Woah

MORE PLEASE… of his presence and move.

long and short of just how invaluable – we – are as the audience… TPTB will never not “hear” from me.

so bring it on

Steve Burton the messiah cometh

Hah, you’re welcome, Patrick! .Hopefully, they won’t be required for this storyline….LOL.

On the fence, as I like Steve Burton. Not a fan of the Carson/Monotone Jasam Show everyday, however. I loved Vanessa Marcil, and I thought her return back in 2010 was written very poorly, and the acting was terrible (and I was a die hard fan in the 90’s). Hopefully, Steve’s return will not be disappointing, like Vanessa’s, and like a sequel to a really, really great movie. We shall see…

Just to establish a timeline, Steve’s return was announced in June when Jean P was still with the show, so that means she helped create the story and helped write his re-introduction to the canvas. But now that he’s officially back at work, and she has been replaced by Chris Van Etten, anything written from now on is “Crelly” material. Hopefully the material is consistent given the writer swap.

He probably won’t be back on canvas until late-September with how the show tapes about 6 weeks ahead of air. As for who he’ll play, I’ve said before that I can’t see him as anyone but the real Jason. I think Billy Miller is a brainwashed someone (my hope is A.J.) who was made to believe he’s Jason, while the real Jason was being kept on Cassadine Island or some clinic somewhere.

Well u know jimh…dare I say it…Alexis is the real Carly!

I pray I’m wrong but with all this talk about Nik lately, is this show stupid enough to have Steve playing Nik who has been made to look like the old Jason??

He is Jason I have not watched in a while but I did read the dialogue from the last two days obvious that e is Jason . I never thought Billy really fit Jason I liked him better as Jake Doe. I told you guys MB was going to get Steve back and he did .

Todd Howarth’s Franco could be the real Jason. Burton could be Jason’s twin. Billy could be the real Franco! LOL…one guy had amnesia, the other had a tumor and neither had all their memores. Could be the epitome of Helena’s mind fu…errr…game!

Sorry, not looking forward to. yet another, Jason return, enough !!!! What I am excited about is Kristina and Parker, Carly the Mob Queen, Ava’s repaired face, and hopefully, a Hayden return !!!! All of which are SOMETHING NEW !!!!!!

This week General Hospital viewers should be on the lookout for a heavenly visit, or vision of Kiki Jerome (Hayley Erin), as her mother, Ava (Maura West) looks to finally make contact with the daughter she so desperately wants to make peace with from the great beyond!

And with that, Daytime Emmy-winner Hayley Erin will reprise her role and share scenes with her former on-screen mom, Maura West.

Erin exited GH in early 2019, when she joined the cast of Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists on Freeform in which she currently plays the role of Taylor Hotchkiss.

EW.com broke the news with first look photos of Erin’s return here.

Hayley tweeted a photo of herself in front of the General Hospital sign at their set with the words, “Surprise, Surprise”

Are you glad to know that there will be some heavy emotional payoff and scenes between GH’s Ava and her late daughter Kiki? Comment below.

Michael E. Knight Joins General Hospital

Suffice to say, this is one piece of casting news that made us very happy to hear! General Hospital has cast multi-Daytime Emmy winner, and beloved All My Children favorite, Michael E. Knight in a mystery role on the ABC soap.

Knight, who played Pine Valley’s Tad Martin on and off from 1982 to 2011 on ABC’s All My Children, will begin taping scenes soon when GH returns from its mid-summer production break.

As to who will Michael play? That is being kept under-wraps.  But Knight’s new GH castmate and his former AMC castmate, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) enthused on the announcement: “I am thrilled, are you kidding me? I love that guy. He’s excited, too; it’s been a while for him. It’s going to be really fun to have him on my turf. I would love to share scenes with him.”

Soap viewers last saw Knight in his role as Dr Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless back in 2015.

So who do you think Michael will play on the GH canvas?  Could he reprise Tad but in Port Charles, since ABC has the rights now to the characters from AMC and OLTL? Stay tuned.

Excited by the news of Michael to GH? Comment below.

Cassandra James Set To Appear in Second Season Of GH Alum Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’

In another exciting bit of casting on the Canadian drama series, Diggstown, General Hospital’s Cassandra James (Dr, Terry Randolph) will soon be seen alongside former GH star, Vinessa Antoine in the second season of the CBC series.

Cassandra first announced the news on her Twitter, expressing “Surprise! “Shooting DIGGSTOWN with my GH sister Vinessa Antoine.”

Antoine responded in kind sharing a photo fo the two together on the set of the show relating: “Just a couple of gals making history.  First black person to lead a dramatic show in Canada and first trans woman on a soap together. Wow! Welcome, sister. So proud to have you here.”

On GH, Vinessa exited her role of Jordan Ashford back in September of 2018, and was later replaced by Briana Nicole Henry, after making Canadian TV history when she landed the lead role of Marcie Diggs on Diggstown.  James first came onto the Port Charles canvas as Liz’s childhood friend, back in June of 2018.

Now shooting Diggstown’s second season, no details yet on what role Cassandra will play, or when her episode will air, but MFTV will keep you posted when that Intel becomes available for Canadian fans, and how U.S. fans may be able to view it.

So, what do you think of Cassandra and Vinessa appearing together on Diggstown? Would you like to see more of Cassandra on GH? Missing Vinessa Antoine? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
