All About General Hospital!

NEWS AND INFORMATION!  Scoops and Spoilers Below

GH will air encore episodes (meaning re-runs) August 29, 30 and 31st. ABC executive Nathan Varni assures GH fans that there is no reason to worry. Each year, a TV series has to produce X number of episodes, no more or less. Usually, GH is interrupted enough by news conferences that it doesn't have to worry about it. This year, it had 3 leftover days with no show, so that's why they're showing these 3 re-runs. It's technically the end of their TV season. The new season starts September 4 after Labor Day.
