Over the past week, speculation has been all abuzz on the internet that Jack Wagner was coming back to work at General Hospital to reprise his role as Frisco Jones, although it was never confirmed.

Today at TVGuide.com, in a item touting Wagner’s upcoming appearance on the hit ABC series, Castle starring former OLTL star, Nathan Fillion on January 7th,  it appears that Wagner has revealed he has not been asked to return to the lone ABC daytime soap in quite some time!

The popular Wagner revealed, “There was a call in February when I’d committed to Dancing With the Stars and wasn’t able to go back, and since then there’s been nothing. General Hospital is always dear to my heart and I’m really happy Kristina’s  (Felicia) back. She still looks so beautiful. Kristina and I haven’t talked about it, but I have a feeling if I went back that would probably garner just a little bit of attention.”

Jack Wagner also apparently declined The Bold and the Beautiful’s recent invite to return as Nick Marone for Stephanie’s teary farewell party episodes!

So soapers, would you like to see Jack back as Frisco in Port Charles? If so, how would you write him into the story, so it makes sense as to what is happening right now?  Weigh-in!

    Yes please! Bring him back and also Genie Francis and Kin Shriner too. They don’t have to come home for good (Genie should) but at least to create some conflict for the other characters and help boost the ratings even more.

    Good for you JW for turning down B&B I hope you told them where they could put their invite. I am not sure how he would fit in the canvas on GH but I adore him and would love to see him back.

    Yes yes yes Jack needs to come back. There are so many ways Frisco can come back. He can help Robert to get Faison, help save Robin and finally reconcile with Maxie. But of couse most of all he can reunite with his true love Felicia! Its been 18 years too long!

    I couldn’t agree with you more. There’s a significant amount of story to tell with many characters whose lives and development Frisco was crucial to. He’s sorely needed.

    Anything with Kristina. Those two wrote soaphistory.
    ‘Frisco and Felicia 2012 ‘ would be major . Hard to believe they haven’t asked Jack back again, High ratings for sure.

    exactly, let’s be honest here. I’d argue that there’s a mandate in place for a Frisco return at this point. And obviously, it’s got to be Frisco & Felicia all the way.

    cant blame him for declining B&B after he and the whole Jackie M team were just sent off to soap oblivion without a proper sendoff.

    Yes! It would be incredible to have Frisco back on GH working with Anna, Robert and Luke. Give them an adventure to go on! Jack Wagner was an icon from the 80s and GH would be rewarding their loyal fan base with this popular favorites return.

    Remember him on the nighttime soap Melrose Place as Dr. Peter Burns. He had great chemistry on that show with both Heather Locklear and Lisa Rinna.

    Absolutely. It would finally give Felicia something to do.

  18. Brad says:

    While he was great on BB, GH is where he belongs. BB was extremely disrespectful in their treatment of him and there is no reason why he cannot return to Port Charles – plenty of story to be told for Frisco Jones!

    This is making me nervous. I don’t understand why all these people are coming back. It does not seem to end. Personally I do not believe that with the ratings and high audience, ABC will cancel another one. Please let that be true.

    YES… but if he comes back… let Felicia stay with Mac so she doesn’t hurt him again. It would also have a bad affect on Maxie.

    He’s a fictional soapcharacterSo who cares…
    All that is important is that we see that Frisco and felicia fireworks again, and exitement and chemistry. People would tune in for that.
    the mac and felicia chemistry is non existent in my opinion. Nothing would be lost there.

    Why? They haven’t utilized Kristina Wagner at all. A ratings burst at his return isn’t worth it if they don’t continue to write for the character after a month.

    Well with Jack dating Ashley Jones it might be hard to have Jack and Kristina as a couple on GH!

    em replied

    well if you read the article, and Jack’s thoughts on it ,he would not find it hard at all. Actualy, he sounds exited to work next to Kristina again and I don’t see how AJ would have say in what acting choices he takes. I’m sure she isn’t be that insecure.

  23. Salimah says:

    Absolutely, bring Jack Wagner back! A Frisco Jones return is long overdue and much desired by Frisco & Felicia fans.

    sidebar: I find it curious that people are here commenting on the chemistry he had with actresses from Melrose place. Irrelevant to this discussion. and as for who he’s dating now, well, also irrelevant.
    and finally, to the person who thinks Felicia should stay with Mac: I think you know better.

  28. Bring back Jack! says:

    A big yes to bringing back Jack! They need to write for him, though. I was a huge Frisco and Felicia fan back in the day and I didn’t like Mac much, but I think I would rather not see F&F as a couple again, tbh. Too much has gone down over the years and they’re a divorced couple IRL now. It would feel like a regression and awkward unless it was handled with great care. Maybe a gradual reunion over time and written to perfection could work. But I would definitely love to see Jack back with Robert & co, and F&F as good friends.

    Yes. Absolutely, Definitely bring Frisco back. Gh needs a hero. Robert could put in a call needing Frisco’s back to take down Faison. They were always a good team before. Robert and him could also rescue Robin and bring her home to her husband and daughter, and also to Anna. Frisco could also try to make amends with Maxie, his daughter, and be reunited with his true love, Felecia. I know she is with Mac now, and she says she is happy, but if Frisco returned. I don’t think she could keep her distance from Frisco. Mac saw their undeniable love between them before and walked away from Felecia. I think it would be interesting and surely would keep alot of fans tuned in if they would bring Frisco home to GH. The ratings would go up too… Let’s make this happen…

    No. Don’t bring him back. Felicia is barely used as it is. And I’d rather him explore a return to The Bold and the Beautiful as Nick Marone!

  33. Christy says:

    well, of course I’d love to have the old Frisco and Felicia, but Felicia and mac are rarely seen now… think if he came back, it would be a short stay. He could be brought back by being on a mission to oh, say, hmm, Switzerland?! :=)

    maybe he’s on the tail of Faison, finds Luke in Turkey on his way…. yeah there’s always a way to bring him back.

    Frisco can get back with Felicia, and Mac can get back with Felicia. They’ll have to bring someone else in for Shawn…or how about Sky? I really don’t thnk Shawn/Alexis have the right chemistry (altho they tried with that “quickie” scene. Mac and Felicia are just ok; they would be better with Frisco and Alexis.. Of course, they’ll have to get Frisco involved in some “dirty” business to make it interesting

    Would love to see Jack back on GH. He was such a main actor back in the day and GH hasn’t been the same since. Also, a Frisco/Felicia reunion would bring a lot of viewers back. Their chemistry cannot be matched!!

    I would love to have Jack back on GH. The concern on this end is, will Frisco want Felicia back or will he have moved on into a new relationship? I love Felicia and Mac, so I really don’t want the writers bothering that at all. If Frisco returns, I would like to see a maturer man involved in a serious relationship with a new woman. A man who is ready to take on the issue of abandoning his children. Maxie is still on the show, so I would like to see Frisco working out the abandonment issues that have shaped her life in such a negative way.

    It was never revealed who Robert called for help my money says it was Frisco.

    Robert called Nikolas Cassadine for help. Robert wanted him to call Helena and lure her to PC, so that Robert could question her.

    I still however feel that a Frisco return is inevitable. According to Nelson Branco, the editor of SoapUncensored, sources close to Jack Wagner are saying that he will reprise his role as Frisco pretty soon in the future.

    That would be quite easy actually! Especially now a/ Robert almost dead, Duke returning & his daughter Maxie pregnant! Now would be a perfect time! He could present an interesting storyline coming between Felicia & Mac! I would love to see this!

    I want to see Jack Wagner SOMEWHERE in prime time television. Back with Bridgit on B and B would be great too, They made such a beautiful couple. I think B and B needs one mainstay couple. Obviously I think it should be Nick and Bridget. B and B seems to be losing its luster. Too many off-beat characters, too many stupid episodes with Liam, Steffy and Hope. Enough! Need a few happy endings here. Looks like Taylor will be leaving, too? Wht’s happening here? Will Eric be leaving, too? And Donna? Tired of seeing her long, unhappy face all the time. Let’s getr with it writers?

    Jo he locked them all in the closet with Thorne why anyone would want to work for Brad Bell is beyond me! I did not want them to take one emmy because this show is awful and the games he plays every time at the emmys is disgraceful.
