Anthony is our friend and a part of our television family, but, as difficult as this may be, we understand and respect that this is his choice. Rest assured, Tony has promised to be with us throughout the summer as we have some exciting things in store for Luke. The door will always remain open, so don’t think this is the last you’ll see of Anthony Geary or Luke Spencer.”
There you have it folks. Anthony Geary is definitely leaving General Hospital, but Executive Producer Frank Valentini has given fans hope to see Tony as Luke in future cameo appearances.
