General Hospital (GH) spoilers reveal that many fans are still reeling from the death of Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth), but Howarth remains part of the cast and will return. In fact, it turns out Howarth’s comeback isn’t too far off! According to the new issue of SOD, Howarth will resume filming this April.
Of course, this is great news for any Howarth supporters who might’ve feared this story-dictated hiatus would be a lengthy one. Howarth will be back on set next month, so it won’t be all that long until he’s back on our screens in some capacity.
However, we should note that it felt like GH writers went out of their way to make Franco’s death seem final and real. Never say never on a soap, but this seems like a death that’d be tough to undo.
Naturally, it’s possible Howarth could make appearances as Franco’s ghost – especially if Peter August (Wes Ramsey) needs to be haunted as his own exit draws near! Even so, it might make more sense for General Hospital to take full advantage of this break.
The longer they go without showing Howarth as Franco, the better. If General Hospital wants viewers to embrace Howarth as another character, it just seems like this hiatus would be beneficial for that.
Franco may be officially dead and done – paving the way for Howarth to return in a brand-new role when he heads to the studio this April. General Hospital spoilers don’t confirm who Howarth might be portraying when we see him next, but viewers are definitely buzzing over all the possibilities.
Howarth is a talented actor and a valuable cast member at GH, so it’s good to know he’ll be able to continue with the show. This could be an opportunity for Howarth to show off his acting skills and bring something new to the table in a very different role.
It all depends on what General Hospital writers have cooked up for Howarth for his upcoming stint.
