‘General Hospital’: Jacob Young OUT at B&B – Next Stop GH or YR?

General Hospital spoilers hint Jacob Young, a beloved actor, is available and could come back to GH. In a recent interview, Jacob Young shared the news that is leaving CBS soap The Bold and the Beautiful. Fans of GH fondly remember Jacob Young as Lucky Spencer. Since Jacob Young’s departure announcement from B&B, rumors started swirling that he might go back to his original stomping grounds at GH as Lucky.

Jacob Young as General Hospital’s Lucky Spencer

General Hospital spoilers history reminds that Young played the part of Lucas “Lucky” Lorenzo Spencer Jr. from 2000 to 2003. For the role, he received a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actor in 2002. He will always be one of Elizabeth Webber’s (Rebecca Herbst) great loves. But that was before he ran off to another country to find himself.

After leaving Port Charles, Jacob Young moved to Pine Valley (All My Children) and then eventually back over to The Bold and Beautiful, where his career originated. However, Jacob told TV Source Magazine that he wasn’t getting enough airtime at Bold so he decided to pursue other ventures.

Now that his time at B&B is up, Jacob Young is promoting his new YouTube show, Daytime after Dark. But wouldn’t it be nice to see him back on General Hospital as Lucky Spencer?

General Hospital – Lucky Spencer return would complicate Friz wedding

General Hospital spoilers imagine the drama that Lucky’s return could cause in the midst of a Friz wedding! Lucky is Liz’s true love and Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth) would most likely lose it – would he go back to the dark side? Would Liz go through with the wedding or run into Lucky’s arms?

Elizabeth and Franco are expected to head down the aisle this Fall. If Lucky appears at the wedding, it could be epic! Who can blame GH fans for wanting Jacob Young back on the soap? Liz adored him and he was a great father to her sons.  His family needs him. Even, Lulu Falconeri (Emme Rylan) is currently fresh out of brothers…and a father…and a husband. But, the point is General Hospital fans love Lucky.

Jacob Young – A great Adam Newman at The Young and the Restless?

Another option for Jacob Young would be on the CBS soap The Young and the Restless playing scheming family-man Adam Newman. Since Justin Hartley left the part, the show was lacking. Young does have the looks and acting skills to pull off that dynamic character. Y&R fans would be over the moon if Adam Newman returned to Genoa City. The CBS soap definitely needs the ratings bump that the character would bring.

CBS fans would love Jacob Young as Adam Newman

Y&R fans would also be ecstatic considering they never really got over losing Michael Muhney as Adam Newman. While that wound was still open, they lost Justin Hartley. Adam has ties to the main legacy family on the CBS soap, the Newmans. Many compare Adam to his father, the great Victor Newman (Eric Braeden).

If Adam Newman returned, it could mess with almost every character on the show which would be very welcome these days. Maybe Adam didn’t die in that fiery explosion. After all, this is soapland and explosions usually mean a character got away and is living another life elsewhere. Adam could very well come back with Jacob Young’s face.
