The buzz over the last 24 hours for GH fans has been over reports that Ryan Carnes is back on set this week at General Hospital reprising his role of Lucas Jones.

In fact,  GH posted a photo with Carnes, and his on-screen mom, Jackie Zeman (Bobbie).   Look for Ryan to be on-air sometime in February.

The last time viewers had a sighting of Lucas was back in the summer of 2017 when his father, Julian (William deVry) was put behind bars.

As to what is the status to the couple known as “Brucas”, and Parry Shen’s character of Brad, no word on that.   Carnes had been on recurring status with the ABC daytime drama series.

Meanwhile, Carnes’ new film, La Boda De Valentina will hit movie theatres in the US and Mexico on February 9th.

So, what do you think brings Lucas back in story?  Let us know. But first, after the jump, watch the trailer featuring Ryan in the upcoming film release of La Boda De Valentina.

    Welcome back Lucas Jones!

    It’s ridiculous that this show would rather hire newbie doctors than give airtime to a GH legacy character (by means of his adoptive family more than his bio dad, obviously)

    Marrying Lucas to Brad was probably a mistake, in retrospect, because Brad was always written as a ridiculous throwaway character, and when they finally did throw him away, for the most part, they dumped Lucas with him, just because he was Brad’s husband. I really could care less if Brad stays gone, but let’s see a little love for the son of Bobbie Spencer & Tony Jones, for Hell’s sake!

    I’d love to see Ryan in a romantic comedy. Not exactly what I pictured him doing, but he’s got my attention!

    As far as GH, I’m glad the cast have other projects, because I love watching them. The show has just become intolerable to watch and I don’t like to suffer–so good for Ryan and me.

    Super thrilled to have him back! Hope it’s not just for a day so he can tell us how mad Lucas is that Julian is out of jail. Rather want to see the rest of his an Brad’s story. They mentioned they were adopting. They tempted us with Britt being back on the scene. Why, oh, why can’t we have our Lucas and Brad back getting into trouble with Britt and Felix and Epiphany when it was fun to watch and had hospital characters we cared about???? Please Soap Gods, if you’re listening, bring them back for a good story and not just the Nurses Ball ~ though I’ll take what I can get.

    The absence of Brad in Britt’s all-too-brief re-emergence in Port Charles was particularly egregious! Her BFF would have definitely hightailed it down to the pokey to visit her if only for a sumptuous snark session….they both had so much catching up to do since her last hasty departure! Even if these two had only shared a single scene together, it would have meant a lot to “The Britch’s” fans who found the eventually genuine friendship with her former lab lackey to be one of the best things about both of these characters!

    Totally agree. Would have loved to have seen that. It’s not too late, is it? Where exactly is Britt; I don’t recall?

    Celia replied

    Those two are classic, Shaybelle….and, Ryan Carnes is HOT, n’est-ce-pas?
    I should hold my tongue, though, before RODD decides to excoriate me by “putting me in my place”…..not allowed to give an opinion, as far as he’s concerned.
    I just wonder, if we will ever see Britt or Brad again. They shone such a legere light on all that is GH—engaging personally, and professionally, in a hospital setting, as it should be—some of the flavor is gone.

    Celia replied

    Shay, amica cara, do not get taken in. I question everything and everyone. There is a word in Italian that transcends every translation….English, French, German. “Scaltra”(fm), which goes beyond ‘sly’….I am learning, LOL to use my sharper wits, LOL. I am not easily fooled on these sites as I used to be.
    Anyway, I have never seen the attraction between Lucas and Brad. I know Parry is not gay…and it shows. His portrayal is not authentic, as Lucas’ ( do not know if he’s gay). The couple is mismatched.
    I think we need more gays on the show. Brad is “gone” as are Lexie and Parker. No balance.
    I know you don’t watch Days, but Sonny Kiriakis ( not gay in real life) plays a gay person, and does it impeccably.
    I would welcome Brad with open arms…but, he and Lucas need to divorce. LOL….calls for the introduction of a perfect mate for Lucas; not in the form of Brad.

    Shay replied

    @CeeCee…….Well, if the GH showrunners bother to notice the positive responses Britt receives whenever she makes one of her abbreviated appearances in Port Charles, then she should soon be back with a vengeance! And with the NB once again just around the corner, what would be a better time for her to get an early release from jail in order for she and her buddy Brad to “Dish the light fantastic” over all the details of this annual event?

    Patrick replied

    “oh, Shay” I would LOVE…. L – O – V – E LOVE my darling Britta to make a mere second appearance… for the love lorn…… me in peticular… a lady love dance royale

    Britta is a full fledged Nathan 100 % belong being stud muffin get piece his first

    like the live appareance.. want the real thing on tv

    Celia replied

    Ahhhh, Shay…you’re too good-hearted and ‘misdiagnosed’ my cryptic comment. ….not talking about characters on our soaps…..talking about ‘characters’ on these sites.
    What is soooo obvious to me, is not so transparent to you, bella cara.
    Beware with whom you engage in conversation…..the very person who came out of the blue, a few weeks ago, only to drag me through the mud, for no apparent reason, but using the same language as another. I may be younger than most here, but I am not stupid.
    Later, amica.

    Sorry, Rodd, but as much as I like Lucas, I can’t stand the thought of him getting back together, with that little worm, Brad. Bad enough the stuff he got into helping Britch with her scheme, but messing up Finn, and blackmailing him, was enough for me. Hope to never see his miserable face again, around GH, with or without Lucas.

    Rodd replied

    I understand where you’re coming from. I just miss the old dastardly but funny Brad and his exploits with Britt. I wish the former writing regime hadn’t made him so dark the last go around.

    Rebecca1 replied

    Hi Violet…if I remember correctly we were led to believe it was Brad who changed Finn’s results but it was Dr. O? I can kind of understand why Brad was so bitter; he DID help Finn develop the cure and then Finn just cut him out of the loop moneywise. And thoug Finn donated the proceeds to save the hospital which was amazingly magnanimous he did harshly exlude Brad. That would infuriate anyone…the injustice, ingratitude.

    Now, honestly…I could be remembering this wrong. It’s what I THINK happened…if so…while Brad was “not playing nice” he did, on the other hand, help Finn when it mattered most.

    Rodd,
    My most heartfelt apologies….I mean that sincerely, for getting you confused with Reed. Please, I beg you to forgive me. As soon as I realized my mistake, I took to my ipad to say how sorry I am.
    Take care.

    Looking forward to Lucas back on screen!Maybe the writers could have some interaction with Carly and knock some sense into her for being so obnoxious in the whole Drew and Jason saga!Her treatment of Drew was so bad and hard to watch!Love me some Bobbie thou and on that note
    more Laura and Kevin!!!!!

    Carly’s obnoxious to too many to count. I’d like to see someone knock her out as opposed to having sense knocked into her. LOL…my most hated character. (And not someone I love to hate…just can’t stand her.)

    Violet Lemm replied

    Rebecca 1, I guess we should just agree to dissagree about Brad, as I can’t seem to see the good in the character, but I like the actor. I do thoroughly agree with you about Carly, can’t stand that woman!

    Rebecca1 replied

    Hi Violet…I was sort of playing devil’s advocate; I, too, was annoyed with Brad this last go round. I do feel it’s a shame that they had him regress a bit in the sense that he was so adversarial and underhanded with Finn. I DID think he was great with Britt as “besties”…the scenes quite a while back with the two of them eating ice cream and watching the Nurses Ball on TV were so fun (in my opinion). And, I like how he became a better person when he dated/married Lucas.

    So, in essence, I didn’t like him this last go-round but in the character’s defense, as I mentioned, he helped Finn find the cure; he came through without ulterior motive…just to help save a life. So, I guess I cut him some slack.

    Carly? ..you know how I feel. And when I see her mothering Avery I feel pure disdain.

    LOL…amazing how fictional characters can get on our last nerve! ;)

    It’s hard to believe that we’re looking back at Felix/Britt/Brad et al as the good old days already. :) I thought it was a fun era but everyone dumped on it so much, especially whatshername, the fairy princess girl that took Robin’s place and then just couldn’t catch a break… everyone hated her online to the point where it was a little weird. Anyway, that actually was a decent time of the soap in that we had drama actually in the hospital on a show called General Hospital.
    Happy that Lucas is back in whatever form – It was amazing, especially as a gay man, that this show at one point had three regular gay male characters. That’s got to be a first. In any event, I wish they’d find more for Lucas to do but am glad that he’s ‘around’ even if we don’t see him.

    Jacob…I certainly never dumped on the Britt and Brad connection…they were golden! Comedy at its best! Now I do recall that when he first came on the GH scene, I found Brad’s predatory act a bit creepy, but once he dispensed with that, I considered his labtime chicanery quite amusing! It’s just a shame that his character’s promising backstory was brushed aside for less interesting, more contrived plotlines of the time like Sab’s whole Ugly Betty/Disney fantasy, which, yes, I fully admit to absolutely abhoring…and I’m glad to know I was not alone according to your post!!! (Her goody-two-shoes Cinderella character was also responsible for the ruination of Felix as a viable standalone player, since he was constantly tethered to her silly, saccharine melodrama….) At any rate, I hope Brad makes a comeback with Lucas and that we shall eventually see him reunited with his BFF Britt, too!

    @Rodd…..Isn’t Britt in the slammer, aka, “paying her debt to society????” (In other words, “cold storage” until the writers decide to trot her out again….which we hope shall be sooner rather than later!)

    I love the Lucas character, but dislike Brad. Pair Lucas either with Felix or a new character. But I would like a gay character on the canvas.

    Rodd replied

    Interesting thought. What if Peter was gay? I think the Lucas and Felix ship has sailed, though.

    Reply

    Shay replied

    @Rodd…I do believe that Lulu and Peter are headed for a tete a tete, but perhaps he will prove to be “flexible” when it comes to his romantic choices, which could prove interesting for the future. Of course, we are uncertain as to the duration of this character’s stay in Port Charles…is he simply yet another “temporary” villain, or will he earn a more permanent spot on the GH canvas?

  10. Lisa says:

    Love Lucas, don’t really care about Brad.
    Where the heck is Felix – I miss him ….such a great character.
    As to why TPTB are bringing Lucas back – I’m sure it will have something to do with Julian.

    If i remember correctly Bobbie a couple of months mentioned that Lucas and Brad were trying to adopt.So maybe when we see Lucas again we get an update on that.

    Maybe Joss gets pregnant and Lucas adopts her baby?

    The movie looks like it’s gonna be a great vehicle for Ryan. Hope it does really well and his star shines even brighter for more of the world to see and appreciate.

    Everyone gets excited about Lucas. Why not bring him on and ice Nathan, Lulu, Dante, Peter and Helle? And the gay thing, why even go there full time? Okay, Lucas is gay, so what, write a good story he can sink his teeth into and then have him sit in Charlies Pub and complained to Julian that there are not enough single men in PC! Make it secondary until its not. Being gay is no longer and OMG TV moment!

    I would like GH to focus on legacy characters and those characters with ties to such. In last decade though, it seems the ties have been made to give us a momentary thrill, with no real concern for history, back story, or future. they push believability even more than the stretch we allow in this storytelling genre. I have watched soaps most of my life and I understand soap family trees are like weedy thick underbrush more than a stately oak.

    Carnes’s Lucas may come back after a marriage fail, thus keeping Brad in the annals of GH history. What a lovely story for him to find his way home, re-establish ties with his mother (Jackie Zeman is so underused!) and be involved in something special, a mystery, a new romance, an initiative that brings the cast together for some major event.

    I like the way you think, Iakovos. I did say, Lucas would be better served with someone else, other than Brad.
    Don’t get me wrong, I truly like Brad…just not with Lucas.
