General Hospital spoilers from our favorite behind-the-scenes leaker say Griffin Munro is done as Matt Cohen exited the ABC soap this week. Soap Dirt was first to report this leak back in February and today it was CONFIRMED.
With Kiki Jerome (Hayley Erin) dead, Griffin was at loose ends, so fans worried he might leave. Now, it looks like Matt Cohen’s exit is TODAY. With Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) still on the loose, he might be his last victim… we’ll see.
General Hospital Spoilers: Matt Cohen Done as Griffin Munro
Griffin Munro is leaving Port Charles, as portrayer Matt Cohen leaves GH for other projects. This came to use in early February from a reliable leaker on the set. Today, it was confirmed. His last day is March 21. However, this could mean many things. First, unless they kill Griffin on his way out of town, they could later recast the role.
Remember, Matt Cohen originated Griffin Munro in 2016 and the hunk has been a fan-favorite from the start. He came to town as a tarnished priest giving off that sexy Thorn Birds vibe. After the revelation that he lost his v-card cheating with Nathan West’s (Ryan Paevey) shady wife, his character gained depth on General Hospital.
Then he found out he was the son of legacy icon Duke Lavery (Ian Buchanan) and wound up in bed with troublemaker Ava Jerome (Maura West). Griffin was finally heading for a happily ever after with Kiki when Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) struck her down. Losing her could be why he decides to leave Port Chuck if he goes on two feet rather than to the morgue.

GH Spoilers: Griffin Munro Mourning Kiki Jerome
Since Kiki’s death, Griffin Munro was deeply troubled on General Hospital. He struggled to come to terms her death but is no closer to accepting a future without her. In fact, when he ran into Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) in chapel, he confessed that he had lost faith.
He also had to deal with that brief moment when some suspected he might have killed Kiki. This quickly turned out not to be true, though it made things worse. Now, he is back at work, but isn’t doing too great. Even Ava, who hates and blames him for her losing Kiki, noticed Griffin Munro is doing poorly.
Thrilled @SofiaMattsson1 is returning to #GH. I hope we see a lot of Griffin & Sasha in the future. I ❤️their chemistry! A romance, hopefully! Looking forward to finding out who Sasha really is & what the heck is going on w Griffin @mattcohen4real @valentinifrank @MichelleAltman1 pic.twitter.com/XIcI4nAq7I

General Hospital Spoilers: Griffin Death Part of Serial Killer Wrap Up?
With the serial killer storyline still flowing, there’s a chance for Ryan to sneak in one last kill. Griffin Munro and Matt Cohen’s exit could coincide with the serial killer story ending or Ryan’s final capture.A brand new GH promo showed Kevin attacked. That hints Ryan survived and is back to haunt Port Charles.
However, if Griffin sees him, you can bet it’ll be a fight to the death. So just maybe, Matt Cohen gets a big exit as Ryan’s last victim of brutal violence. General Hospital spoilers know Griffin wants the person who killed Kiki to pay.
So, when it comes down to the wire, it might be Griffin Munro versus serial killer Ryan. A recast seems the least likely outcome of the actor’s exit, but we’ll see. Be sure to watch ABC today for Matt Cohen’s final scenes.
