‘General Hospital’ Reveals Pandemic Plan – Reruns, Hoarding New Episodes & What You’ll See on Your DVR

General Hospital updates remind that the ABC soap’s on hiatus. With 4-6 weeks of episodes shot, that means the pandemic shutdown could run them out of new soaps to air. So, what’s the plan? For now, there will be new shows most of the time – but one day a week, you can expect a surprise on your DVR. Here’s the latest news and what you’ll see as the Nelle Hayes (Chloe Lanier) baby story heats up on GH.

General Hospital Hoards Fresh Episodes – But Just One Day a Week

Start this Friday, April 3 through May 22, repeat episodes of GH will replace new episodes each Friday. Cast members will introduce the reruns, and the first one begins with Laura Wright, AKA Carly Corinthos. The first General Hospital flashback is the one that focuses on the reading of Gail Baldwin’s (Susan Brown) will after her death.

Each episode features an introduction from GH cast members. No doubt, the powers that be want to get the most out of the episodes that have already been taped. Now that the social distancing order has been increased, there’s a chance General Hospital will run out of new episodes. But, they may come up with another clever way to stretch out the shows they already have.

New Episodes Continue Monday Thru Thursday on GH

For now, General Hospital episodes will still be new between Monday and Thursday. The re-run episodes will only take place on Fridays. So, at least for the upcoming weeks, viewers can keep up with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and his dad Mike Corbin’s (Max Gail) Alzheimer’s story. As well as the drama that currently surrounds Jordan Ashford (Briana Henry) on GH.

Certainly, Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) still has her under his thumb. Not to mention, the custody fight between Nelle Hayes and Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell). Spoilers suggest a bombshell that concerns Michael and Willow Tait (Katelyn MacMullen) will hit soon on General Hospital. So, fans can still escape the real-world drama for a while with fresh episodes.
