As has been reported in the past, it has been rumored that some General Hospital stars will be departing. The following have contracts up for renewal: Kimberly McCullough, Jason Thompson, Julie Berman, Kelly Monaco, and Jonathan Jackson.
Both members of the Spencer family, Jackson (Lucky) and Berman (Lulu) have apparently stated in the past that they wanted out. It's possible one or both of them has had a change of heart since that was some time ago.I'm guessing Kimberly McCullough is leaving, and I won't guess on the others, except to say that if Dr. Scorpio is leaving, Dr. Drake may go along with her. However it shakes out, there will be one or two more major exits.
Some good news: Stuart Damon is going to be doing more taping! And it's just possible that we may be seeing Rick Hearst (Ric) once again. Alas, Robin Christopher (Skye) will be leaving in the next few weeks. Hopefully she'll make a return trip somewhere down the road.
