Fans of ABC's General Hospital are feeling a little worried about what's going on behind the scenes at the daytime drama after two of the soap's long-running stars made strange posts on their social media accounts.
Kin Shriner, who recently celebrated his 45th anniversary in the role of Scott Baldwin, took to Twitter on Wednesday to share his feelings about his working relationship with GH following his milestone moment.
"How I was treated by @GeneralHospital after 45 years big issues," the actor wrote. "But stay tuned!!!"
How I was treated by @GeneralHospital after 45 years big issues but stay tuned!!!- Kin Shriner (@kinshriner) August 17, 2022
Shriner didn't go into any further detail, but many fans made comments on his post about how shocked they were that GH hasn't honored the long-running actor with a special episode like they've done for other stars in the past. It's not too late, of course, and many are hoping that Shriner's tease to "stay tuned" means that there's a good Scott-centric storyline ahead... but there's always the possibility that the actor means stay tuned to the career choices he makes next, and a post by Shriner's co-star Jacklyn Zeman (Bobbie Spencer) might indicate that that's the case.
Zeman, who is also set to celebrate her 45th anniversary at GH in December, re-posted a throwback photo that shows her posing with Shriner, Stuart Damon (ex-Alan Quartermaine), and Leslie Charleson (Monica Quartermaine). The caption to the photo read, "The class of '77 was the best thing to ever happen to #GH. You'll never be able to convince me otherwise."
In response, Zeman shared, "We did have a great run. Thank you to all our @GeneralHospital viewers for your love and support all these years."
Zeman's choice to reference the group's run on GH in the past tense certainly raised a few eyebrows, with many fans jumping to the conclusion that the actress (and perhaps her co-stars Shriner and Charleson) has been let go.
Even former GH executive producer Wendy Riche caught wind of Shriner and Zeman's cryptic social media posts and shared that she's "concerned" about what the actors' simultaneous messages may mean.
Of course, it's entirely possible that there's nothing to be made from Shriner and Zeman's posts, and the timing and wording of both was just a coincidence that created panic for nothing. Soap Central has reached out to GH for comment, so, keep checking back for updates as they come.
