General Hospital (GH) spoilers reveal that Steve Burton is NOT returning to GH, so the ex-Jason Morgan actor said that “some doors shut.” In an interview with Deadline, Burton reflected on his work in Port Charles and looked to the future with his Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem series on Peacock.
Although Burton insisted he doesn’t have any hard feelings, it’s clear that he’s made peace with his ABC soap exit and is moving on with his career. Burton is more focused on what’s next instead of dwelling on his past.
“I’ll always be grateful for my time there,” Burton said about his GH stints. “It was my family for so long. I grew up there and the fans have always been awesome to me.”
You can see how Burton’s speaking like his Port Charles days are behind him – and this exciting Beyond Salem series is no doubt a big reason why.
Burton appears thrilled to be part of the cast and has been helping to promote Peacock’s new offering ahead of its debut during the week of July 11-15.
“But again, some doors shut and other doors open and here we are in ‘Beyond Salem.’ Wow,” Burton said.
Steve Burton himself is talking about shut doors when referring to General Hospital, so that doesn’t sound like someone who’s interested in making a comeback.
That’s especially true since Burton was let go for refusing to comply with the vaccine mandate – a decision that he stands by and was prepared to get fired over.
Now Burton is all about the doors that are opening elsewhere, so that means gushing over Beyond Salem in this case.
Burton seems like he enjoyed filming this new gig and has had nothing but good things to say about the Days cast he worked with.
You can catch Burton as Harris Michaels, a role he first played back in 1988, if you check out Beyond Salem’s second installment on Peacock. The first episode of chapter two drops on July 11, so don’t miss it!
