ABC’s General Hospital is back in production following the COVID-19 industry-wide shutdown. The long-running soap resumed shooting on Wednesday, July 22, and original programming will begin airing Monday, August 3 on ABC, the network said today.
General Hospital ran out of originals back in late May and has been rerunning classic episodes. Fellow daytime dramas The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless ran out of originals in April and both had been airing repeat episodes. The Bold and the Beautiful resumed production early this month and began airing original episodes on July 20. The Young and the Restless was expected to resume production on July 13.
General Hospital is both the longest-running American soap opera currently in production and the longest-running scripted television drama currently in production. The show has won the Emmy for Outstanding Daytime Drama a record 13 times.
