We could not be more happier for all of our friends and colleagues over at General Hospital! They fought the fight, and this time ABC made the right decision by keeping their now only soap opera on the air, for what we understand, up to this point, as a definite one-year renewal. We will of course keep you updated as more information comes to light, officially from ABC.
In the excited of yesterday and today, many of the Port Charles stars took to Twitter, or spoke with ABC Soaps In Depth and we share a few with you now! Frank Valentini, GH’s EP, “Congratulations to the GH family and all of our tremendous fans!” Steve Burton, “I can’t tell you how excited I am for our GH family and our fans. “Congrats!! No flatline for this Hospital. Much luv.” Maurice Benard, “I am so damn proud to be on General Hospital. Frank has worked his ass off to make this happen. And if he can do this in three months, imagine where we’ll be a year from now! I’m thrilled for the cast, crew, directors, producers, writers, everyone in production — and grateful for the hard work they’ve all done to make General Hospital successful.”
Carolyn Hennesy “I am so thrilled by the GH renewal! Hoorah for the fans…YOU did it!” Nancy Lee Grahn, “One year renewal! Thank you ABC, GH fans, Frank Valentini, Ron Carlivati, What a difference! Upward!” Kimberly McCullough, “Thanks ABC. Now GH can reach 50 years!!”
We congratulate Frank and Ron on amazing first few months … and to the fans of GH, you got your wish! Now, keep tuning in and keeping the daytime soaps alive!
