Port Charles is entering Phase 4 of reopening.
ABC announced Thursday that General Hospital will be back on the air with new episodes beginning Monday, Aug. 3. The venerable sudser — which resumed production this week after a four-month coronavirus-imposed shutdown — aired its last fresh episode on May 21.
GH will be the second of broadcast TV’s four daytime dramas to get back on the air with new episodes, following CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful, which returned with originals on July 21. A return date for The Young and the Restless, which has been back in production for a week, remains TBD. NBC’s Days of Our Lives — currently in the throes of a mass cast exodus — will head back to the studio in September without any lapse in fresh material (the show benefited from having eight months of episodes banked when production was halted in March).
GH diehards are invited to scroll down to check out teasers for the first five episodes back:
