5 Characters We’d like Back on ‘General Hospital’ When Shooting Resumes – Luke, Helena, and More

General Hospital fans wait for news that they’re filming new episodes – but will they bring back fan-faves in new plots – such as Helena or Luke? The classic episodes playing now remind viewers of lots of fan favorites long gone they’d like to see back. Here are five popular characters fans might like to see again on the ABC soap.

#1 Will Luke Spencer Ever Return to General Hospital?

Some viewers would be ecstatic to see Luke Spencer (Anthony Geary) back on GH. For fans who aren’t familiar with Luke, he’s Laura Spencer’s (Genie Francis) ex-husband from the iconic Luke and Laura days. And, Luke Spencer is Lulu Spencer’s (Emme Rylan) dad, reminds General Hospital spoilers.

Also, Luke was last hitched to Tracy Quartermaine (Jane Elliot). Luke’s name comes up here and there, and judging by Tracy’s last appearance on GH — she’s still with Luke Spencer. So, if Tracy can come back for a short arc, then who knows… Maybe Luke Spencer makes a comeback to General Hospital one day as well.

#2 Can We Get Hayden Barnes Back on GH?

General Hospital recaps recall Hayden Barnes (Rebecca Budig) was run out of town by Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma). Sadly, she had to leave her daughter Violet Finn (Jophielle Love) behind with her father Hamilton Finn (Michael Easton) on GH. Plus, her sister Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst) is furious with Nik for making her sister leave.

Recently, Finn, Jasper Jacks (Ingo Rademacher), and Nik all tried to locate Hayden. However, Hayden believes she is running for her life on General Hospital. So, if she doesn’t want to be found, chances are she won’t be. But, Liz wants her sister back, and her daughter Violet needs her too.

With Finn’s wedding to Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) comings soon, maybe Hayden crashes it and professes her love for Finn. Clearly, a lot is waiting for Hayden in Port Chuck, and she’s a fan-fave. So, there’s a good chance she may return to shake things up one day.

#3 Will Helena Cassadine Rise From the Dead Again on General Hospital?

Another GH character many viewers would welcome back is Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers). Of course, Helena’s as evil as they come on General Hospital. Plus, Helena Cassadine has more lives than a cat. Plus, there’s more story to tell now that it’s out that Helena is Valentin Cassadine’s (James Patrick Stuart) bio-mom.

No doubt, fans want to know how Helena Cassadine passed him off as a Cassadine for all these years on GH. And, they’d love to hear it from the villainess Helena herself. Helena can’t seem to stay dead. So, there’s always a chance Helena Cassadine pops up soon to further torment Valentin on General Hospital.

#4 Drew Cain Needs to Be Found and Come Home

These days, GH fanatics are itching for Drew Cain (Billy Miller) to resurface. Remember, his plane went down on the way to Afghanistan. But his body was never found. Of course, he’s connected to many in Port Charles, recall General Hospital spoilers. Most importantly, there’s daughter Scout he shares with Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco).

Plus, Sam is newly single since the court said she can’t be with his twin Jason Morgan (Steve Burton). So, that leaves the door open for Sam and Drew to reunite. No doubt, bringing back Drew Cain would shake things up on General Hospital. You never know – GH might bring back Drew.

#5 Will Morgan Corinthos Come Back to General Hospital?

It’s no secret GH fans miss Morgan Corinthos (Bryan Craig) on the daytime sudsfest. He’s one of the top characters viewers want back according to chatter among fans. Of course, he’s “dead” and has been for years. However, that means nothing on a soap. Morgan could easily come back to General Hospital since they never found his body.

Plus, it would be just what Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) need. Perhaps, getting Morgan back will soften the blow when Mike Corbin (Max Gail) passes away. Of course, it will still be a while until we see new episodes of GH.

But, once they return, maybe viewers will get some of their faves back on the ABC drama – including Helena Cassadine and Luke Spencer, among others.
