Fantastic news! As has had been rumored about, Daytime Emmy winner Jonathan Jackson, along with Nathan Parsons are returning to ABC’s General Hospital just in time to send-off their former on-screen TV dad, Anthony Geary, who will depart the canvas as Luke Spencer.
According to EW.com, “Both men will return for a short arc to coincide with Geary’s last days on the daytime drama.”
Jackson, who plays Lucky Spencer, and was last seen on the daytime drama series in 2011, is currently starring on ABC’s Music City drama, Nashville which has been renewed for its fourth season. While the series is now on hiatus, and although Jackson is touring with his band Enation, its a perfect time for Anthony Geary’s favorite scenepartner to return for some emotional moments with the soap icon before he exits his role after 37 years.
As for Parsons, who is also starring in the primetime series The Originals on CW that was renewed also for the fall, he will return as Luke’s wayward con-artist of a son, Ethan Lovett. Parsons has created quite the primetime career since leaving General Hospital, including a turn on the final season of HBO’s vampire drama, True Blood!
So, what do you think about the confirmation of Jonathan Jackson and Nathan Parsons to GH for Luke’s final farewell? Will the hankies be needed? Comment below!
