This past week saw major casting news confirmed in the soap world. Five-time Daytime Emmy nominee Jason Thompson, who just wrapped his ten-year run on General Hospital, is indeed headed over to CBS’ The Young and the Restless as the new Billy Abbott.
But before he hit the airwaves in Genoa City, it looks like GH Scrubs fans may be in for a long awaited treat! “Scrubs” is the name for the enduring and passionate fan base who have stood by the coupling of Patrick and Robin (Kimberly McCullough) all of these years. With Kimberly McCullough back on-screen in upcoming episodes the stage looks to be set for some major emotional drama for this long-suffering du0.
After it was revealed that his new soap home will be Y&R, Thompson took to Twitter to first acknowledge the General Hospital fans for their unwavering support. Jason related: “I will forever cherish my time at GH. Again, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your support. #LifeLongFriends”. Next, he followed up with a tweet that previewed what may be to come: “A special shout out to the
#Scrubs fans!! You kept the fire stoked for many years. I hope you enjoy the next month of story. @whitewatercrew”
