As previously reported, General Hospital Blog shared the news regarding Steve Burton leaving his role on CBS’ The Young and the Restless after only 3 years. Burton left his 21 year role as Jason (Quartermaine) Morgan in 2012, and joined Y&R as Dylan McAvoy in 2013.
In the midst of all the actor swapping drama that went on between ABC’s General Hospital and CBS’ Y&R, GH was able to snag up Billy Miller (ex- Billy Abbott, Y&R) to take over the role of the iconic ‘Stonecold’, Jason Morgan.
Fast forward to this Fall, there was much confusion once again caused by news revolving around Steve Burton, Billy Miller, and their respective daytime dramas. General Hospital rumors were swirling after news broke out of Steve’s departure from Y&R, and fans automatically started to speculate, wondering if Billy Miller was on his way out of GH, leaving room for Steve Burton to reprise his role.
When Steve left in 2012, it was one of the biggest upsets in General Hospital history. Fans were upset and angry, and many didn’t want to welcome Billy Miller (or anyone for that matter) into the role of their beloved Jason Morgan. Much to our surprise, General Hospital Blog conducted a poll, which resulted in fans choosing Billy Miller as Jason at 61%, leaving fans who chose Steve Burton to come back at a shocking 39%.
It looks like this time around, fans got what they wanted. General Hospital spoilers broke the news that Billy Miller has signed on for another year long contract with GH.
