217 February 4th, 2014 Steve Burton Tweets He Just Re-Signed With Y&R As GH Teases That Jason Is Alive!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

Today as fans of General Hospital watched the story begin to reveal itself for Kimberly McCullough’s (Robin) exit storyline, viewers learned that according to Victor Cassadine (Thaao Penghlis), Jason Morgan is alive and in a cryogenic state!

Victor showed once again Jason’s picture to Robin, which got curious fans on Twitter to ask Steve Burton directly if he was by any chance returning to General Hospital  to reprise his role of Jason or, is he continuing to stay on The Young and the Restless as Dylan McAvoy?

Chris Burgess tweeted from @CBRVA  @1SteveBurton Are you still under contract with #YR, Steve? They showed your picture as Jason on GH!”   To which Burton replied, “Yes, just re signed.”  And with that, it should put an end to any rumor that Steve is returning to Port Charles any time soon.

So, what do you think of the news that Steve is staying put at Y&R?  Were you hoping that he was returning to GH?  What do you think of Victor using Jason to pull at the emotional strings of Robin to get her to do the Cassadine dirty work?  Weigh-in!

    Steve please come back to GH! We miss Jason Morgan. No one else can play the role better than you. I have tried watching you on Y&R and your story lines are just boring. We miss the action and super couple of Jason and Sam. I will always be a fan of yours just waiting for you to move on from Y&R.

    I agree with you. No one can be as good as Jason as Steve Burton. I hope he decides to come back to GH.

    Send Steve Burton back to GH. On GH he shines as a character. On Y&R he fades into the background (Yawn). Very boring storyline.

    I don’t think its a trap I believe Jason will return. I’m thinking the photo is of Steve because you can’t show a new Jason cuz there isn’t one yet & would really be stupid to show a different pic to Robin it wouldn’t make sense ~jmo~

    so very true, and we the audience I Identity with Steve as Jason

    Jean replied

    Why did Victor show a picture? Why couldn’t he just say Jason’s name?

    Cherie replied

    Jean absolutely no-one takes a Cassadine word. Robin would never just say “ok Victor just let me pack” but it dies seem like he had more than just a picture

    Why would SB leave Y&R he has been there a year non stop story they have made it so he can commute he has stated he is very content. I really am sorry that KMC/Robin came back they have done nothing but make a mockery out of her character.

    Agree about the character of Robin. It might just be me, but it also seems to be that she’s more “bitchy” than the Robin everyone feel in love with over the years. I’m not suggesting she be a wuss but it just doesn’t seem the same.

    I absolutely, LOVE, KM’ Robin

    for all that she’s lived

    HOWEVER, it’s not just me…. to me… she seems uncomfortable, now,
    doing, the acting thing

    i’ll simply chalk it up… to… her passion… directing… is her forte

    Scrubs…. “sigh” is one for the history books

    dare, I say… Dr. Drake was humane the other day…. with

    drum roll

    LOL…. “Britt”

    I just hope it’s not back to the same ole, same ole…. Sabrina

    I apoligize to the actor…. you give more… with Carlos

    SZima replied

    I agree with you about Kimberly…I was never a big fan of Robin, and I never wanted her to come back, but this “return” has completely destroyed the character for me. The best thing they could do would be for Robin to really, truly die so that Patrick and Emma can move on with their lives. Especially if it’s true that she won’t be back for at least a couple years.

    Frank & Ron are great at destroying beloved characters, for example John McBain and Natalie Buchanan. It just depends on what they need fom the character…..they have no loyalty to the characters fans or history.

    Patrick replied

    well… i’d be pissed… because of love for the storyline… she and Patrick created….

    so… i’d rather see her kidnapped… and, if he goes back to Sabrina

    for the fans… it’d be like one step forward 2 steps back….

    ugh! please, no.

    victor cassidine… should give her an injection… of memory loss or something… if they are going to go the science fiction route

    just dont’ kill Robin off… it’d be too much

    Harry replied

    Don’t you understand that Robin’s return has been written in such a way as to destroy her character so fans can finally accept Sappy with Patrick once and for all? This was Ron and Frank’s intent.

    patricia replied

    I hope Kimberly comes back soon no one can stand the same all their lives everyone grows and changes. I hope robin comes back very fast

    She is going into directing full time be happy for her that is her passion! I just wish they would have left it alone left her dead! Good Luck KMC may you live your dreams!

    ‘Gossip’? No. Heartless screwing with the fans by Frank and Ron, yeah actually. Assuming your right of course. I’ll give TPTB the benefit of the doubt until it’s obvious that they were screwing with us. Rule #1, don’t dangle fan favorites in front of GH fans if you can’t back it up or you’ll face serious backlash and outrage. It’s really a betrayal to the fans if it’s some kind of a joke.

    I 100% agree with you. To us serious and loyal GH fans it was heart wrenching seeing his picture!

    Pen replied

    Oh, please. I’m just as loyal a viewer as anyone, and it was nowhere near ‘heartwrenching’ for me to see that picture. Exasperating is the word I’d use. As it is, however, I’m fine with Jason being used as a story construct to facilitate Robin’s exit. Works for me.

    Matthew replied

    Good for you Pen. Congratulations!

    Nasus replied

    There are just too many gullible dorks our there. SB will not return to GH. He signe a ew contract with Y&R. A new actor will play the roll of JM. The character will havd had a face transplant and a story line to go with it. Best bet for the roll is MM who is without a contract since Y&R let him go. But, the JM character will be written back into life for the sole purpose of writing it off the books. It;s the same blue print as is for the Robin character. Now, if JM is kept, it will be with a brand new identity and new story. ( Face change, brain altered, a return towards his medical roots. ) NOTE: GH has been doing a slow but recognizable shift from mob town back to it’s roots as a medical soap show. Still keeping the popular SC and others for flavor but one year from now GH will be thought of as a medical drama soap 80% to 20% mobster drama soap…….. GH-sw/cda….

    AGREE, they should have just left his name out of the picture Y bring up hope for all the fans!! UNLESS HE’S ( STEVE) HOLDING OUT FOR MORE $$$… I get he’s happy in another place and enjoying the family life but AGAIN Y BRING UP HIS NAME PERIOD, there’s tons of ppl that u can bring bk to life.. either bring him bk or shut it down dont bring up the subject!!

  6. Matthew says:

    Well he didn’t deny a GH appearance. Maybe Y&R would be willing to loan him out for a single, brief GH cameo to coincide with Robin’s final day of her GH stint. Ron and Frank have achieved the impossible before and Jill Phelps seems like she would be willing to make that gesture for one scene. In other words, if this isn’t the case, I’m ticked off because that is screwed up to tease the audience to this extent. It would seriously damage my opinion of the integrity of Frank and Ron.

    So your telling me there’s a chance! Seriously tho your probably right. I don’t think that’s fair that he’s on that boring show that all the oldsters watch and GH still teased a comeback. Now I’m going to ffwd all the Dante/Lulu scenes to pay them back. I’d quit watching altogether but I’m too addicted.

    Days loaned out Wally Kurth to GH, so he could play Ned for a handful of episodes.

    SZima replied

    I highly doubt that JFP would allow Steve to go back to GH for any reason.
    Other shows have been OK with actors doing that…DOOL with Eileen Davidson to Y&R and Wally Kurth to GH…but they also aren’t contract players, whereas Steve is. I don’t recall a “contract player” doing any crossover work.

    No, they actually don’t have to get permission to use his image for that. They do have to pay him for it, though. And if he says he signed with YR, I tend to believe him. I don’t think he’s under any sort of ‘gag order’ from ABC. *snort*

    Terry replied

    Gag orders have been in place before. As for permission, I bet your right. And it’s not clear how long the contract is..

    Pen replied

    They have, but that’s extremely rare, and requires legal action to do so. Also, there’s no extant reason for ABC to gag him, nor would they have any authority or leverage to do so.

    If I’m not mistaken, I believe Burton stated he signed for two more years at least.

  8. Luke says:

    Of couse SB is staying on at Y&R – with MM and BM gone, JFP is free to cement Steve Burton in as the leading man on the show, just as he was when they were both on GH – The have already given Dylan the coffee house and made him Nikki’s son, it won’t be long before all of Genoa City revolves around Dylan – just like it was with Jason on GH – that is the reason I stopped watching that soap and started watching Y&R in the first place, and now history is repeating itself.

    SZima replied

    And when that happens, I will probably wean myself off that show.

    Reply

    Sharonda replied

    I don’t know why he signed another year to Y&R…but then again I have stopped watching Y&R since BM & MM left-the real actors. SB doesn’t have any range, and to be quite honest the role of Dylan should have gone to someone else because he is written very poorly. But even the worst dialogue can show an actors range from his emotions alone, and he doesn’t give that. But that’s JMO. I’m grateful he’s not returning to GH!

  9. jaselovesam says:

    Glad he’s staying on Y&R….Sam and Silas are OUTSTANDING together…Michael Easton and Kelly Monaco are like acting soul mates. By the way…Steve Burton’s departure from GH hasn’t hurt GH’s ratings a bit…in fact…they’ve improved.

    Barbara replied

    I beg to differ Steve’s absence has created a huge void and GH is Not the same without him. KM can leave though I don’t like her anyway and I want Patrick back with Sabrina. As for Sam and Silas I hate them together she belongs with Jason!

    Reply

    Sharonda replied

    @ Barbara, SB IMO was dead weight, no void to fill, but he did give room for others to play a role, if he wanted to be sideline, why go to Y&R and be on everyday. He shouldn’t even be in the opening credits on Y&R.

    patricia replied

    I want robin back she is a icon of the show but then no one agrees to the same thing . everyone has the right to their own opinion I just like robin

    Phil replied

    Agreed! Sam and Silas are much better than Sam and Jason! I think Sam would stay with Silas anyway… Kelly Monaco and Michael Easton have way too much chemistry to waste such a thing!

    Pen replied

    I agree; I love Sam and Silas; they’re wonderful together and have a beautiful dynamic together. Plus, Silas treats her with more respect than Jason ever did. And I categorically regard the idea of ‘belonging’ to one person only is utter codswallop.

I just hope they don’t recast, cause I don’t want to get back into the Jason show. I want to see the talents of ALL the other actors.
    Kimberly could only be on GH for a short time, so they had to give Robin an excuse to leave town, Jason is a good excuse, lets just hope nothing comes of it.

    When Jason comes back there WILL NOT be JFP around writing or directing for him so GH will not become the the Steve Burton show the way Y/R has. GH def needs Jason back. Billy Miller will be perfect lets go RC & FV. We are def ready for a Jason return.

    Exactly. Why can’t TPTB of all soaps realize that letting one actor or actors dominate a soap eventually will lead to boredom and lower ratings? Even fans who do adore an actor or a couple on a show do not want to see them 24/7. This usually also causes resentment by every else and they turn the channel for sure. It’s happened over and over.

    I think Billy Miller should be a Quatermaine from Jimmy Holt’s side of the family. We don’t need Jason, he was Alan’s affair with Susan Moore and she’s dead, and that’s how he should stay.

  12. Joe Wells says:

    I agree completely with KatieK. The one thing I am having trouble with (given this storyline) is the ease in which Robin will likely leave Emma. Okay, I can see that she can justify the situation (Patrick is a great dad, he moved on with his life with Sabrina, She (Robin) can’t work with Ulbrecht, I’m sure Robin will discover that Sabrina’s baby is Patrick’s, etc.). BUT, how will she justify leaving Emma EVEN to rescue Jason?

  13. Elhu says:

    I love Steve Burton, and I enjoy his character on Y&R, and while he will always be Jason to me, I did not think he was going back to GH, and I get it, his Y & R role (Dylan) is versatile, and he gets the schedule that works best for he and his family, but wouldn’t it be funny if Billy Miller takes on the role of Jason, now that he is no longer on Y&R? Again, Steve Burton will always be Jason to me, but I can see Billy Miller giving that part do justice for sure.

  26. Reagan says:

    I wouldn’t say that Burton would NEVER return to GH– as a lot of people have left certain shows over the years & make surprising returns later– but have no hopes of it being anytime soon. They don’t have to bring the character of Jason back until “Robin” makes her next return, and by then they can say it was all a Cassadine trick or recast.

    I understand why so many people don’t like the idea of Burton being on YR as a “Friend of Jill” and will agree that Burton is limited in the type of characters he can portray, but I surprisingly like his portrayal of Dylan. The PTSD was some of his best stuff.

    Since I stopped watching Y&R after Jan 30th he can stay there. Michael Easton and Kelly Monaco are outstanding, entertaining, exciting together as Silas and Sam. GH is better without Steve Burton and and the ratings are good so he can stay with JFP at Y&R. I don`t want Jason to be back but it will be interesting if Michael Muhney takes the role. But if MM is ever going to be cast to play any role at GH it better be someone new.

    We all knew he wasn’t going to leave Jill. Good for him. He’s a better Jason than Dylan any way. I also think he was a better actor on GH. He’s just not doing it for me on Y/R. With that said. You did choose sides Steve. Good Luck w that. Bring on Billy Miller. Jason needs to go on & everyone is replaceable. Even Steve Burton. If you love Soaps as I do as long as it’s a believable storyline, I always give replacements a chance for the stories sake.

    Contracts definitely do mean something, but generally when the circumstances involve accusations such as those levied at MM, the contract has a void clause. It’s not uncommon. And it doesn’t mean you can just ‘walk away’ from a contract. Please.

    Pen replied

    …sure, if you call a sinking ship steadily increasing ratings (which started rising after Cartini took over an then also surged almost immediately after Jason died), placing within spitting distance of taking over B&B’s spot, and gaining on Y&R. The show has had consistent gains over the last two years and began hitting the 3M viewer mark in October—and then continued hitting that number and above each week since then. Which, by the way, is a viewer total it had not achieved since 2002.

    Hardly a sinking ship, sweetie. Check your facts.

    liz replied

    SWEETIE check your facts, KM return and the other vets are why the numbers were up ,Do you really think all those people started watching because of Patrick and Sabrina’s wedding, nope , now that all the vets are leaving I see the numbers going down. plus the numbers mean nothing! People watch because that is what they have done for many many years but if you look at all the blogs the fans are not happy with GH. I watched for 38 years and stopped watching after they wrecked all the vets, but am still a Y&R fan and I am happy all the GH vets are jumping ship.

    Irish Girl replied

    Um, sorry, but the numbers most certainly DO mean something, and I think the network would beg to differ with you. ;) And the numbers had started going up long before KM was back on the show, and have continued an upward trend. Meanwhile, there are still many vets still on canvas; not “all” of them are “jumping ship” by a long shot. In fact, Ric Hearst just debuted yesterday, which is in direct contradiction to your claim! Hughes, Grahn, Geary, Benard, Wright, Monaco, Zamprogna, Herring, Elliot, Buchanan Shriner, York, Wagner, and Lindstrom are all still very much on canvas, as is Leslie Charleson. Kinda seems to me that they would constitute “Vets”, wouldn’t they? Are they all “jumping ship”? Um, no.

    But it’s impossible to explain such a thing to someone who is quite obviously decided –erroneously, I might add — on the way things are. You may also want to be careful of using words like ‘all’ “everybody” and “nobody”, since you do not speak for those people. And again, the numbers prove that. And again, numbers matter to the network and the advertisers–both of whom I can assure you are very pleased and happy with the show.

    Have fun in your bubble, though. It’s no trouble to me. :) I’ll be enjoying the show with the 3-million plus (and growing ) other viewers.

    Well, no way could having Steve Burton return to GH make the show worse. It was pretty terrible back in the day when his emotionless mug, along with Sonny’s orange one, were the center of the show, but these days he wouldn’t even be noticed with all the awfulness of the show.
    And his underacting would be a welcome relief to the ants-in-his-pants, bugs-down-his-back overacting of Roger Howarth.

    Imagine that — a father figure who isn’t a criminal, thug, and sociopathic killer, emotional abuser, philanderer, and all-around misogynistic, self-absorbed jerk? Who would actually be able to raise kids and not try to pawn them off on others or force the mothers to put them up for adoption because his job is too dangerous, but a job which is also more important to him than any offspring he might have, so someone else has to make the sacrifices so he can do what he wants?

    I can get behind that. Daddy Silas sounds great to me.

    I never believed SB was going back to GH— but I do believe at some point in time they might recast the role of Jason— his frozen state and experiments on him at the clinic could explain away why he would look different. But at this moment in time, I don’t see any place on the canvas for the character Jason— maybe if Sam and Silas ever get married, they bring him back to stop the wedding— it seems to be the thing to do in soaps, bring back th “dead” to stop weddings during sweeps week, but other than that, Jason is just a memory now.

    He isn’t going back to GH because JFP being in charge of Y&R will make sure he is on every single episode. The people in charge at GH like mixing up the characters so what reason would he have to go back.

    I actually agree with Matthew. I believe they could use him for one quick shot to show he is actually alive. Then, like they did with the Robin character, not show his character again for a year or so. By then, he can come back to GH, or they can recast the part and people won’t be so angry. It makes a lot of sense.

    People are tired of GH and their little tricks, doesn’t make sense, The way they have set it up for the reason why Robin is leaving GH, and they could try to find a look alike for Jason, and let him find his way back to PC he could have had amnesia after the gunshot and just now regaining his memory, Robin could be taking a job at another hospital until they get rid of the New Chief of Staff.

    Well they found a look alike for Carol Burnett, and I have lived long enough to know everybody has a twin somewhere, but that is beside the point, AJ could have been a Jason if he wasn’t playing AJ, no you won’t find another Jason, he has made that Character, but you can beat what you are doing, trying to place with people interest in the soap, keep playing and soon you will be like All My Children and One Life To Live, then we will see who has te last laugh ha ha!

    How does GH even have the ability to show Steve Burton’s photo? They must own the rights to the “Jason” character. But with him under contract to another network, how can ABC show his actual picture? It would be the BEST thing for GH if Steve would come back, but if you read his Facebook posts, he is very happy with his family in Nashville, and can fly into L.A. for filming. It seems ABC wasn’t willing to let him do that, and his family was most important to him. Steve Burton KNOWS his GH fans will always support him! Right????

    Why would Burton come back? As soon as Ron and Frank were at the helm, they started destroying the Jason character in order to prop up John McBain in order to make it okay for Sam to leave Jason for McBain.

    Of course, Jason is alive. No one dies in Port Charles. I miss Steve Burton in the role but it seems his ship is now in Genoa City waters. There are many 40ish actors strong in the daytime genre who could be recast in the part.

    For the record, I am tired of the “no one really dies” storylines. I can accept some out-of-this-world storytelling but too many times no on GENERAL HOSPITAL has resurrection been a plot device. It has lost its punch emotionally with me.

    Yes, and that was the problem. The ratings sank so low that the show nearly got cancelled. You cannot have an ensemble show like a soap revolve around one person that way. It was time for a change, and the current ratings bear out the showrunners’ judgment and storytelling are much better and literally saved the show.

    I have been watching ever since I was a little kid because my aunt watched it when she babysat me. As a long standing and loyal fan, my opinion is if SB doesn’t come back, then leave Jason dead. There are so many times they have tried recasting a character like his and it has been very hard to see anyone else playing that role. As a mother, I can see where SB wants to be with his family and is sticking with Y&R for that reason vs returning to GH. As a fan, I hate it. I don’t like that GH teased longstanding fans of the show by showing his pic to us and making us hope SB was returning to the show. Since I don’t typically follow soap mags and such, I had no way of knowing SB had just resigned and I, like so many Jason fans, actually thought this was a step to having SB return. After learning SB was still going to be with Y&R for at least another year, I was disappointed. Maybe one day SB will return as Jason, maybe not. If SB doesn’t return, my vote is do NOT recast Jason. The entire time Maxie was recast I could not see her replacement as Maxie. There are just some roles you shouldn’t recast and IMO Jason Morgan is one of them.

    Best of luck to SB and KM in all their future endeavors, but this is a fan that will miss both of you on GH and will always hope for their eventual return to GH.

    I have been watching GH for around forty (40) years and I have connected with only three of its characters, Emily, Nicholas, and Jason.

When the original actor who portrayed Nicholas returned, the world seem to be where it should be. Why? I think we live out our boring lives and for one hour a day, fantasize with our favoirite characters, like Jason. Jason served as a balance to other characters, and I always saw the good in hiim, no matter what!. I haven’t watched GH since he left and have sworn not to retlurn until Steve Burton does.

Since when you know for him to let his guard down. Especiallt at the sign of trouble Jason wouldv’e never let his guard down. Im very disappointed . Then to have Robin come back jusst to leave you mightest well let Patrick marry sabrina. That was so dumb. Ava getting away shooting Oliva this long now Connie.
