General Hospital (GH) spoilers reveal that the ABC soap could get back up and running again soon. According to Deadline, General Hospital is the latest daytime drama to set a tentative restart date. GH is hoping to resume production by mid-July, although plans aren’t locked in due to COVID-19 and changing circumstances in Los Angeles.
However, this is a step in the right direction and could pan out if all goes well. The Bold and the Beautiful was the first soap to resume production on June 17, but they’ve faced a few snags along the way. B&B had some issues with false positives, so they changed labs and adjusted their testing method.
That led to putting production on pause briefly, but B&B’s once again filming new episodes now that everything’s straightened out. The Bold and the Beautiful cast and crew was back to shooting fresh content by June 24, so hopefully they’ve moved beyond all the testing trouble and can keep right on rolling.
The Young and the Restless has been monitoring the situation at B&B and intends to follow their lead before long. Y&R recently set their own tentative restart date. They’re looking at July 6 as when the show might resume production, but that date’s not set in stone.
Still, it’s good to have an idea of Y&R’s goal. The same goes for General Hospital and this possibility of shooting by mid-July. Days of Our Lives hasn’t made announcements about when they might put their cast and crew back to work, but they aren’t in as big of a hurry.
DOOL still has over three months of episodes left to air due to their advance filming schedule, but B&B, Y&R and GH are completely out. Those three soaps have been re-airing classic episodes, but fans are certainly eager to see new ones as soon as possible.
Let’s hope General Hospital can follow through on this plan to resume production in mid-July. It’d be great to see some signs of life on set and know new episodes are finally coming! We’ll deliver updates as other GH news becomes available.
