The week of November 25, 2019
Big news for GH fans, particularly fans of the Quartermaine clan. Jane Elliot is set to reprise her role as Tracy Quartermaine next month. It’s being labeled a holiday visit, but rumor is it could amount to more.
Elliot announced her retirement from the business in 2017 and made her last GH appearance that May. At the time, Traci ventured off to start a new life on her own and was last seen running in to her ex-husband Luke (Anthony Geary) in Amsterdam.
Anthony Montgomery returns as Andre Maddox, this week. The doctor is summoned back to Port Charles in hopes of turning Franco (Roger Howarth) back into his old self.
Rebecca Budig is reportedly out, again, as Hayden Barnes. The actress returned to the soap in July. Tamara Braun made her last appearance as Dr. Kim Nero last week. She created the role back in 2017, after previously playing Carly from 2001 to 2005.
Please note that due to coverage of the impeachment hearings, air dates may be subject to change.
