Last week, the shocking news broke out, confirming Steve Burton’s EXIT from The Young and the Restless after just three years as Dylan McAvoy. The time Burton spent at Y&R is merely a fraction of his 21 year performance on General Hospital as Jason Quartermaine/Morgan. Fans new and loved him as a resident of Port Charles for over 2 decades.
Last Fall, General Hospital news reports confirmed that GH newcomer, (Steve’s recast as Jason Morgan), Billy Miller had signed on a new contract with GH. However it has been reported that contract was a ONE YEAR contract, which would mean talk of contract negotiations with Miller should take place around this time. However, we are already into October, and Miller is still on screen as Jason Morgan. There has been no confirmation on whether or not Billy Miller has signed on yet again with ABC’s General Hospital. Fans of both Steve Burton and Billy Miller are scrambling to search for answers. The biggest question this news poses to fans is, “Will Steve Burton reprise his role as Jason Morgan?”
General Hospital Blog will keep fans notified of any contract information regarding GH’s current Jason Morgan, Billy Miller. So far, there isn’t a reason to believe he will be leaving the show, but on the other hand, there hasn’t been confirmation of a new contract deal either.
We want to know! Would you welcome Steve Burton back to GH with open arms as Jason Morgan once again?
There has been a huge stir due to the made up rumor of one supposed news page. Yesterday an article came out claiming that is has been confirmed that Billy Miller (Jake/Jason Morgan) is leaving General Hospital to return to The Young and the Restless. As we stated yesterday, this is completely a false rumor. Today we have conformation from a rep at ABC that this is in fact not true. Check out Nathan Varni’s tweet, squashing that ugly rumor that stirred the GH and Y&R pot yesterday.
General Hospital and The Young and the Restless fans have been in a tizzy since seeing the recent articles circling, regarding Billy Miller (ex-Billy Abbott Y&R, currently Jason Morgan GH), and Steve Burton (ex-Jason Morgan GH, currently Dylan McAvoy Y&R).
General Hospital rumors spread like wild fire, but when Steve Burton and Billy Miller are involved, they spread like wild fire on speed. We use the term “rumors” heavily in this particular situation. It’s apparent that the topic of Jason Morgan and Billy Abbot is a sizzling and sensitive subject for General Hospital and Y&R fans… and it’s even more obvious that many fan sites and news pages tend to embellish the truth when it comes to what is actually going on with the actor swapping, feuding, and contract statuses involving these actors and their corresponding daytime dramas.
The latest rumor circulating social media claims that Billy Miller is leaving General Hospital and going back to Y&R to reprise his role as Billy Abbot. These rumors have even gone as far as claiming that Steve Burton will be leaving his role as Dylan McAvoy on Y&R, and returning to GH as Jason Morgan. Some sites even claim that this news has been CONFIRMED in their title, yet there is absolutely no source to back up these claims.
General Hospital Blog would like to set this huge rumor straight, hopefully being able to clear things up for fans once and for all. The RUMORS that Billy Miller is leaving GH is JUST a RUMOR. As for Steve Burton leaving Y&R to return to GH as Jason Morgan, that alleged confirmation is also falsified.
Billy Miller is still under contract with General Hospital, as is Steve Burton with The Young and the Restless. Please keep checking back with us to find out more about the never ending drama.
