General Hospital (GH) spoilers reveal that the ABC soap is still on track to resume production. If everything goes according to plan, the show’s hoping to film new episodes in mid-July. When will those new episodes air so fans can enjoy some fresh content again? Here’s what we know so far.
No official next airdate has been set – and that’s partly because this restart timeframe is tentative. General Hospital doesn’t know for sure if they’ll be able to film in mid-July like they want.
There are many factors to consider surrounding the COVID-19 crisis and the rise in California cases. The state’s seeing a higher rate of positive tests and hospitalization, so GH has to keep all that in mind.
However, it’s a good idea to stay hopeful about General Hospital’s return to production. Assuming GH can stick with this mid-July restart, when will new episodes hit the screen? Since The Bold and the Beautiful was the first soap to resume production, let’s consider their filming schedule and initial plans.
B&B began filming again on June 17 with the goal of airing new episodes by early-to-mid July. They soon faced a delay due to false positives and a lab change, which led to stopping production briefly and picking it back up on June 24.
Nevertheless, The Bold and the Beautiful’s original timeframe is important to note. They predicted they could air new episodes again in early-to-mid July after restarting on June 17. It’s reasonable to assume a mid-July restart date for GH could mean airing new episodes in early-to-mid August.
That lines up with General Hospital’s plan to ditch the classic theme weeks and start showing more recent encores. GH viewers will see episodes from this past May during the week of July 13-17. It sounds like they’re hoping to refresh fans’ memories before they begin airing originals again.
Of course, things could change as we get closer to that mid-July mark, so we’ll see if the cast and crew will actually get back on set by then. As other GH news comes in, we’ll pass along updates.
