Steve Burton left his 21 year run on ABC’s General Hospital in 2012. He played the iconic role of Jason Quartermaine/Morgan, and become the Daytime TV face of the Port Charles mob, alongside c0-star Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos).
Burton’s departure from his role as Jason on GH became one of the biggest upsets in Daytime. Burton’s decision came as a result of what was said to be what was best for his family. He joined the cast of CBS’ The Young and the Restless, as Dylan McAvoy.
The role of Jason Morgan was recast by Y&R vet, Billy Miller. It was hard for fans to accept at the beginning, however, JaSam fans have accepted and embraced the new role.
Steve Burton has confirmed via Twitter, his departure from Y&R this coming December, at his contract’s end.
What will Steve decide next?
Would you like to see him reprise his role as Jason Morgan on General Hospital?

Since actor and portrayer of Lucky Spencer, Jonathan Jackson is now on ABC’s hit series, Nashville, it doesn’t look like we will be seeing him reprise his role as Lucky any time soon.
There have been recent rumors circulating regarding Lucky returning to GH and who will be playing him. It seems like General Hospital has been getting a few stars from NBC’s The Young and the Restless, such as Michelle Stafford (Nina Clay) and possibly Billy Miller who has been reported to play the new Jason Morgan this August. The most current news regarding a new Lucky is that Y&R star Michael Muhney will be cast to play General Hospital’s Lucky Spencer. Recently, he and actor Rick Hearts (Ric Lansing) have been quite friendly with their twitter exchanges. There is a possibility that the two have gotten to know one another taping on the set of GH. With Michael Muhney’s recent departure from Y&R, it is likely that this rumor will come true in the near future.
