General Hospital confirms when new original episodes will air

General Hospital is back in production and a date has been set for brand new episodes.

After an unprecedented hiatus in filming due to the Covid-19 industry-wide shutdown, the ABC soap successfully resumed shooting again on Wednesday.

And now the network has confirmed that this means fans can look forward to brand new episodes from August 3.

The daytime drama had been relying on themed reruns to fill the void since May, but in recent weeks GH had been repeated episodes that aired weeks before production stopped.

Fans had already guessed new episodes weren’t too far away after actors on the show revealed they were heading back to set.

Marc Anthony Samueal (Felix) posted a snap of himself on a coach wearing a mask as he wrote: ‘Workplace moda’.

When a fan asked if he was back at work, he replied: ‘yessir. Happily, and gratefully.’

Before that Josh Swickard (Chase) posted: ‘As I head back to work — and to a workplace that looks very different from before — I’m reflecting on how I spent my quarantine and what I learned.’

The show’s filming will follow COVID-19 safety protocols set by LA County, the City of Los Angeles and Television City’s owner Hackman Capital Partners.

In fact, its resumption only became possible after the producers reached agreements with the Hollywood guilds.

General Hospital is both the longest-running American soap opera currently in production and the longest-running scripted television drama currently in production.

General Hospital airs weekdays at 12pm (ET) on ABC.
