ABC’s General Hospital is celebrating its 52nd anniversary! The show which debuted on April 1, 1963 just received 28 Daytime Emmy nominations yesterday leading the pack of any other series on daytime television.
The doctors, nurses, mobsters, and characters that have inhabited Port Charles over the decades have kept many long time fans coming back for more drama each day, while garnering new fans along the way.
To mark the anniversary today, the long running series has a very special episode on tap where we turn back the clock to 1963 and watch the original GH character of Dr. Steve Hardy, Nurse Jessie Brewer, and Intern Phil Brewer as played by today’s current cast members of Daytime Emmy nominee Jason Thompson (Patrick), Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth) and Ryan Carnes (Lucas). Their scenes will be seen in black and white. And today is the day fans have been promised the reveal of what caused Luke’s (Anthony Geary) mind to splinter so badly, and the harrowing secret that somewhere resides in the Spencer’s old home.
