Ever since Steve Burton who plays Jason Morgan left General Hospital a year ago, fans have been clamoring for his return. When he left the show, his character was shot in the back and pushed into the harbor. The current plot has Robin Scorpio Drake (played by Kimberly McCullough) looking at a picture of Steve Burton as Jason Morgan, as he is very much in her thoughts since she was told that he wasn’t actually dead, but that he was cryogenically frozen. Fans are hoping that since his picture was used, that Steven Burton will be returning to General Hospital. Is there any hope?
This storyline is just to give an exit to Kimberly McCullough because her return was always meant to be brief. She plans to leave to focus on directing.
There is absolutely no chance at all that Steve Burton will be returning to GH, at least in the near future. He posted on Twitter a few days ago that he just signed another contract with the Young and the Restless. Burton has been quite clear for the last year that he prefers to work with Jill Farren Phelps (executive producer of Y&R), which allows him to be able to spend more time with his family in Nashville.
