When it comes to General Hospital, Anthony Geary is a staple, and everyone is used to seeing Luke Spencer on the show. Since Geary retired, there has always been hope that he would change his mind and decide to come back to the show once again. You never know what is going to happen with a soap opera. Soap Opera Digest revealed that Anthony Geary has put his Los Angeles house up for sale, which kills the dreams everyone had of Luke Spencer returning full-time to the show. It looks like he is done with Los Angeles and along with this done with General Hospital.
Anthony Geary’s home is a three bedroom in Los Angeles. It was built in 1979 and is located in the Hollywood Hills. Geary has listed the house for $999,999. It was just put up on the market, and so far Geary’s house is still for sale. Over the weekend, Anthony Geary actually sold the items inside the house as well. When you look at the house, it is a bit outdated, but is a gorgeous home for whoever ends up buying it.

So what is Anthony Geary doing now? Reports are that he is living full-time in Amsterdam. This doesn’t mean that Geary couldn’t return for an episode or two here and there, but it doesn’t look like you will ever see Luke Spencer on the show as a full-time character. Being on the set all the time like that was hard on Geary’s body.
Celeb Dirty Laundry recently shared that Anthony Geary returning to the show is kind of expected right now. The fact that Lulu Spencer found a body that was wearing jewelry she felt looked like her dads had everyone thinking that he might be back again. There is a lot of speculation that he could come back for a time during the fall sweeps. They are on Cassadine Island and you never know who will show up there. Could Luke Spencer come back as himself or possibly as a ghost?
You never know what will happen, and General Hospital could decide to get Anthony Geary back on the show for a week or two. The fact that he made this big decision to sell his house shows that Geary doesn’t have any plans of coming back for more than a few episodes. When he left last time, Geary said that he was retiring, but everyone knows a good story line could get him back for a little bit.

Fans were not happy with the way that Geary left the show. They were hoping for something a lot better and if they brought Geary back for a bit they might be able to give the fans a better ending for him. Also, if they bring him back it will be just around the same time that he left a year ago. You know that a return of Anthony Geary would be huge for ratings and get some of the older viewers back to watching the soap opera again. People that haven’t been tuning in at all would come back for him, and that could help the ratings, which haven’t been doing great lately for this soap opera. This could be just what they need right now.
