General Hospital News And Spoilers: Maurice Benard Talks Retirement Amidst Recent End Of Contract

Anytime I speak with a stranger about my favorite Soap Opera, regardless of whether someone watches General Hospital or not, the name that rings everyone’s bell is Sonny Corinthos. And when you know about Sonny, you know about the man behind the iconic role, Maurice Benard.

General Hospital news reports from late March reveal Benard’s contract had ended in 2022. Rewind a few months back to October of 2021, a Twitter question sparked a very honest and to the point reply regarding Maurice Benard’s thoughts on retiring from General Hospital.

General Hospital spoilers reveal, a Twitter user enlightened Benard about the various gossip going down in online forums and chats. The fan mentioned that one of the comments that, “hit hardest,” was a rumor about Benard retiring, and hanging up his role as Sonny Corinthos. Maurice’s answer left fans a little unsettled after learning his thoughts on the topic. The State of Mind host admitted, “I think about retiring all the time, but I always honor my contract.” He went on to say that “General Hospital is my second family, I’m having a great time right now.”

Fast forward a few seasons and General Hospital news reports can confirm that Maurice isn’t going anywhere from GH anytime soon.
