ABC seems to be signaling that General Hospital fans are going to continue to go without new episodes as the Trump impeachment trial coverage continues. The show was preempted on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of this week, and recent social media posts on the show's pages suggest that the preemptions will continue for now.
Fans were quite frustrated on Thursday when there was no real update about a preemption provided on any of the show's social media pages. At this point, the posts seem to signal that the network will let fans know when new General Hospital episodes will air, rather than letting people know day-by-day that they'll be preempted. This strategy isn't necessarily going over well with viewers.
On Thursday evening, a new clip was shared on Instagram and Twitter that seemed to be an effort to smooth things over with frustrated General Hospital supporters. The short video featured Michael Eason, Jophielle Love, and Finola Hughes, who portray Finn, Violet, and Anna.
The trio said that they had just finished filming some upcoming scenes, and they encouraged everybody to keep an eye on all of the General Hospital social channels to learn when the show would return. The post did get a lot of love from the show's fans, with nearly 80,000 likes and almost 600 comments.
