It is a very bittersweet today in soapland!  General Hospital’s Steve Burton is wrapping up over 21 years as Jason Morgan today on the set of the ABC soap opera.   And as fans, colleagues, and friends in the industry say goodbye, Steve’s family awaits him in Nashville, where Burton will reportedly be living.

Burton took to Twitter early this morning as he went into work with this short but sweet tweet to his followers, ” Good morning! Wow. Today is the day. Much luv 2 u all. Thank u.”

And now as the day is unfolding several cast members have also been sharing their thoughts on Twitter on Steve’s departure and the taping of his last episode, which is set to air in late October.  Here are just a sampling thus far from Steve’s co-stars past and present:

Kimberly McCullough: @1SteveBurton  “Stevie! Wish I could be there to give you a hug on your last day. You’ve done such great work- wow!”

Laura Wright:  “Strange day on the GH set lots of emotions and it’s only 830 am. @1SteveBurton xoxo good luck !!! Love ya BFF!!!! U will miss me yelling JASON!!!!!!!

Kelly Monaco:  “Early morning for me at GH. I don’t like goodbyes.”

Scott Reeves:  “@1SteveBurton Have an amazing finale! Wish I was there. I’ll be waiting for you on the front porch! Love you brother!”

Derk Cheetwood, “Like to say how much I’ll miss Steve, not only a great actor but person and friend”

Kirsten Storms: @1SteveBurton‘s last day was today. (I’m still in denial. Completely.)”

Kassie DePaiva:  “@1SteveBurton I wish you the very best on your new journey!!!”

We will bring you more updates later today!  So soapers, how are you feeling about this?  Does it seem real that Steve is leaving daytime?  Hard to fathom, but he is moving on!  We wish Steve all the best.

It is so sad… He is my fave on that show! He is so talented and I have enjoyed his work so much! I also love that he is such a good man and I wish him all good things and best of luck getting roles and opportunities that he will love and excel at. I still hope they are leaving it open for hime to return if he wants to. Enjoy… Steve and thank you for being in our lives through your fabulous 21 years on GH! You will be missed!

No it doesn’t seem real at all………..we, as fans, have lost so much this past year…….it’s like saying goodbye to a family member. Gh will go on…but it truly will not be the same. When I was at SSW……the throngs of fans waiting to see Steve was unbelievable…………couldn’t get near him. I wish him well…and I’m hoping to see Port Chuck very soon.

Suppose all Jason fans can blame Scott Reeves to some degree. He spent alot of years living in Nashville while performing with the country group he was in. I have read that the two of them are extremely close, with their religion and famililes. So I am sure visiting Tenn to visit the Reeve’s, he probably took to the area. Nashville and surrounding areas are beautiful. But I still think he is going to “shockingly” show up in “Wisconsin” interacting with Katherine Chancellor. JMO

I live in WI!! Who is Katherine Chancellor?

I don’t blame SR or anyone else but SB. He worked his job for 21 years and did well for himself. Why not take an early retirement from the business?
What religion??

I will miss Steve, but honestly I wont miss the character “Jason.” He has been over exposed for the last decade. And thank God that horrendous Jasam pairing will have to finally end! This will force Cartini to turn the page on that part of GH history and it’s long over due. Now if Maurice Bernard were to peace out Id be thrilled. Both characters have eaten GH history for far too long. When the Jason character became an Icon that further eroded the standing of the Quartermaine family and it lead to the marginalization of so many solid vet… Read more »

Obviously you didn’t research your facts correctly,the show’s ratings were already down when they gave the story line to Sonny and Jason,their the ones who kept the show going this long.I wish Steve all the success that life can bring ,I’ve watched GH since I was 11 and now 44 lol. and Steve is one of the main reasons I stayed that long.Maurice and Kelly are my other two fav’s.I think GH has been cheated at the Soap awards for years,I love the story line and the betrayal of the characters,It’s a great show and I hope it stays on… Read more »

I can’t believe that Steve Burton /Jason will no longer be on GH. He has been such a big part of the show for so many years. And his character means so much to so many of the other characters on GH..what will Spinelli do without StoneCold? Who will Carly come to when in need? Who will kill off folks for Sonny when needed? Who will Elizabeth pine over? And who will Sam love and who will be the father to her baby boy once they figure out he Is Alive? And Michael always goes to his uncle Jason for… Read more »

Wow Debbie, you got down to the nitty gritty with those ” who ” questions. It does make you wonder. Like someone posted on here above I believe, Why now? Why now, when we have lost so much in daytime over the last year? Now when you ask the ” why ” question, along with all those ‘ who ‘ questions you posed above, it makes you want to conduct your own interview with Steve Burton and ask. Why? Was there anyway Steve you could of hammered out some agreement for sometime off? Maybe shot just 3 days a week.… Read more »

What You posted is exactly the reason Jason/SB needs to go along with Sonny. Someone called it the Jasonny hour…lol. That is NOT GH! Thats why they lost so many loyal fans!

Yes, they (the writer’s) got carried away, BUT Steve and Maurice/ Sonny and Jason carried that show for year’s when the writers had no storyline for some of the other character’s. It was year’s……. before viewer’s begun to tune out. Blame the writer’s, it’s not Steve and Maurice’s fault. General Hospital won Best Serial and writing for year’s and year’s and year’s during the Jasonny hour. Keep that in mind.

I was never a fan of Burton’s (staring into space and never changing the expression on your face is not “acting”). However, his fans can’t really believe that he’ll never be back, can they? He has a family to support. They ALWAYS come back (even he did it before). The only thing that will stop it is if the show is cancelled.

No it what totally turned me off about the SB/ Jason character. He has as much energy as a sleeping dog and same amount of interest invested in being there. 1lovesays: Remedy, Steve Burton couldn’t have been there for 21 years if he had NO energy invested in being there! Now that maybe the case NOW…… (giving you the benefit of the doubt) BUT…. that HAS NOT been the norm. Overall, I don’t agree with you at all! Plus, you are not a fan of his anyway, so you don’t have an objective point of view, but a BIAS point… Read more »

I loved those blank stairs into space. I actually just wrote about it below. It’s not easy (those expressions) to come up with. It really is: ACTING!!!!

Remember Jason had a head injury, and those black, aloof stares are ALL supportive of his injury/ and him being alittle strange BECAUSE of it.

I hope Steve doesn’t go on The Young And The Restless. I hope he does his new projects, and then decides to return home to GH. He is the reason why I’ve watched all these years. What will Sam do without Jason. The JASAM LOVESTORY WAS THE BEST EVER!! Jason Morgan and Sonny Corinthos was the greatest team all these yrs. Many fans tears will be shed on his last day. Soooooooo sad for us. We’ll miss Steve so much playing the heartthrob Jason Morgan. No One can fill his shoes. He is a real nice guy, and easy for… Read more »

I understand that actors like Steve and Kimberly want to move on to other ventures in life. However, what I don’t get is their timing. We all love soaps but we also know that daytime is a dying genre. Both of these particular actors I would assume are making a good payday. Why not just ride it out for however long GH has remaining?

A day of mixed emotions for sure – happy for Steve and his bright future with his famly and in his future business endeavors, where I am sure we will still be able to enjoy his work, but GH will not be the same without Steve’s portrayal of Jason Morgan. He plays such an integral part in so many characters lives, and did it so well (with his unique portrayal) for many, many years. Using tivo/DVR’s, I am sure many people tend to fast forward through some scenes at times, but I can honestly say I have NEVER fastforwarded through… Read more »

IT’S A SAD DAY AT GH. But we can’t say of how, much we love Steve Burton. For playing Jason and he played, over a decade. And he wants to do other, things like Kimberly Mcllough. Is doing. And I actually personally think, if the rumors are true, about him going on Y&R. That’s great and actually, I personally think that he might end doing the, same the that Kimberly is doing right now, for the show. By popping up on a reoccurring basis, and Ingo. As well. Onto GH. That he will pop up, whenever they want him to,… Read more »

Gosh, I CAN’T believe THIS…! I CAN’T BELIEVE. All Great things come to an end, and THIS, Sonny and Jason pairing was one of the GREAT and BEST Male relationships in Daytime Television that was LOYAL through and through. I am a little misty eyed, and I know IF I see the last air date, I wil cry. Steve deserves the chance to move on and do other projects. I also could see this coming as well. Steve seemed alittle fustrated with the changes at General Hospital. Yes, the show is a better show, BUT it came with the cost… Read more »

I have been watching GH since the begining. So many have come and gone but you are the one that I will miss the most. I just loved your story lines and relationships on the show. You are a great actor and I hope to see you on the screen again in the future. The show won’t be the same without you! Good luck and god bless.

I am so very sad that our beloved Steve who plays our daytime heartthrob Jason Morgan, is Leaving GH. It doesn’t seem possible for GH to be without Jason. He was GH really all these years. Jason Quartermaine/Morgan and Sonny Corinthos has truly kept GH on the air all these years. They were the best team ever. No one can play Jason Morgan other than Steve. What will Sonny, Carly and most of all his true love Sam McCall Morgan do without him. His 9 year love storyline of JASAM was so fun to watch all these years. The day… Read more »

ABC Previews General Hospital’s Halloween Episode

Fight Night will definitely have an impact on the lives of the citizens of Port Charles, on the upcoming Thursday, October 29th episode of the ABC daytime drama series.

Announced by ABC today, along with primetime’s Dancing with the Stars, The Conners, Supermarket Sweep, and America’s Funniest Home Videos, GH is having some ghoulish goings-on for the trick or treat holiday.

Unbeknownst to them, Julian notices the kids are being watched a little too closely by a masked individual. Uneasy and unable to shake the feeling that something is off, Julian confronts the man. Meanwhile, Carly is stunned when Cyrus brings a familiar acquaintance to dinner at the Metro Court. And elsewhere, Finn and Anna’s plans to take Violet trick-or-treating are hampered when Finn is called back to GH, leaving Anna alone, unaware that a particularly evil threat awaits her.”

Gregory Harrison Is The New Gregory Chase On General Hospital

General Hospital just got hotter as it beef’s up its storyline featuring Kim Delaney as Jackie Templeton.  Now comes word that TV veteran, Gregory Harrison has come to the ABC daytime drama series as the recast Gregory Chase.

The character of Gregory Chase was previously played by DAYS James Read, who plays the treacherous Clyde Weston now and then on the NBC soap.

With Harrison taking on the role of Finn (Michael Easton) and Chase’s (Josh Swickard) father, that makes things a little juicier in the romantic department.

According to EW.com who broke the casting news, Harrison begins taping today Wednesday at the ABC studios for General Hospital and fans can look forward to his debut on-screen in a few weeks.

As to the storyline: “Fireworks could be on the horizon for Harrison’s character.”

TV fans remember Gregory from the hit series Trapper John M.D., then later on Falcon Crest, Judging Amy, One Tree Hill and more.  He also has frequently appeared in Lifetime and Hallmark Channel movies most recently.

So, what do you think about the Gregory Chase recast with Gregory Harrison? Intrigued? Comment below.
