The mystery is over and the dreaded news has been confirmed. Earlier this week, General Hospital news reports confirmed Steve Burton’s exit from the daytime drama, when the actor shared a video message on Instagram. In the video, Steve explained the details of his departure.
The current storyline, along with the recent, sudden confirmation of Burton’s exit, has raised questions around the future of the character, Jason Morgan. Since GH news reports announced that Trevor St. John has landed a role on GH, General Hospital comings and goings and General Hospital rumors began claiming St. John would be replacing either Ingo Rademacher as Jax, or become the new Jason Morgan.
GH news and spoilers reveal Steve Burton’s role as Jason will be left open for a potential future return, while GH rumors claim the role is being recast by St. John for the time being.
Sources say Jason will emerge from the rubble, with an all-new look for the audience, by remaining Jason in true form for his friends in Port Charles. There won’t be any identity crisis for this recast, just a simple switch.
Steve Burton will be dearly missed. While we appreciate and support Steve’s stance for medical freedom, we are so sad things have taken this path. We wish Steve and Ingo the best and hope that someday they can return to their daytime careers as Jason Morgan and Jasper “Jax” Jacks.
