General Hospital is ready to restart production and give devoted fans new episodes they’ve been longing for quite some time. Of course, there are many safety restrictions in place. But, cast and fans must be ecstatic for the return of the ABC sudser. Here’s the latest info on the date GH resumes filming.
General Hospital Third Soap Back to Work?
Recently, our source at ABC daytime said GH joins the CBS soaps, and set a tentative date for return to filming. Recently, Bold and the Beautiful filmed one day in the week of June 15-22. Then, they shot again the week of June 22-26. Also, The Young and the Restless aims for July 6th after the holiday.
Right now, Days of Our Lives remains on hold. However, they have enough episodes to last deep into Fall so they’re in no rush. So, General Hospital should be the third US soap back to work, and they’re shooting for mid-July. No doubt, GH fans are ecstatic to get some good news and wait for new General Hospital scenes.

GH Eager to Return
The first soap back in production was Aussie soap Neighbours. So, General Hospital, along with the other soaps, are ready to follow suit. Of course, the guidelines the Australian soap must follow are strict. Actors must stand five feet apart and cannot hold hands or kiss. And, of course, just like we expect on GH, no fight scenes.
Also, they’ll monitor the interaction between everyone. No doubt, they’ll adapt to their new way of production. Surely, General Hospital will do the same. Of course, it will take some adjustment. But, GH is sure to adapt just the same and are likely thrilled to be back in action.
Older General Hospital Actors May Hold Off on Returning
As of now, older actors and those with medical concerns may not return to GH right away. Sadly, that would include Max Gail, who plays Mike Corbin. Of course, it’s the worst timing because we’re right in the middle of the compelling Alzheimer’s storyline with him on General Hospital. So, it’s sure to be a letdown for fans if the rest of Mike’s story plays out off-screen.
No doubt, his performances were stellar, alongside Maurice Benard as Sonny Corinthos. So, it’ll be a shame to miss the episode where we lose Mike. Although, Maurice is sure to wow fans with his acting skills as he deals with his father’s death. At least there is finally an end in sight to the GH hiatus. Don’t miss new episodes as soon as they return.
