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.

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.
