Prepare yourselves, soap fans! Soap Opera Digest's Editorial Director, Stephanie Sloane, has the inside scoop.
Peter has Britt and Jason caught between a rock and a hard place. How does he plan to use them to his advantage? @1SteveBurton#GH is brand-new and starts RIGHT NOW on ABC! @kellythiebaud pic.twitter.com/5f1ZAz16Hn— General Hospital (@GeneralHospital) November 16, 2021
Sloane revealed that Steve Burton has wrapped up his time on General Hospital. Sources from the show shared that Burton finished filming on set back in October.
The actor refused to follow the show's vaccination mandate and since Burton is still not vaccinated, Jason's time in GH is coming to a close.
Emma Samms, who has also been missing from the GH set, said that she is hoping to make her return to the show very soon. Samms shared with Soap Opera Digest that she is "still very much in the depths of long COVID," but is anticipating her reappearance as Holly in the future.
AJ McLean is also making his first appearance on Days of our Lives and will be in scenes with both Ava and Gwen.
Wrapping up Sloane's casting update, Jess Walton will be returning back to the Y&R set as Jill.
