The week of March 7, 2022
Sean Blakemore’s latest stint in Port Charles is about to come to an end. The actor, who returned as TJ Ashford’s (Tajh Bellow) biological father, Shawn Butler, in 2021 has confirmed that he’s leaving the soap.
The actor announced the news on Twitter, noting that it was his choice to exit the show because of other obligations. To accommodate Blakemore’s decision, Shawn will be relocating for business purposes.
GH made its debut in 1963 and is the second longest-running daytime soap opera in American history. The longest-running soap is Guiding Light. While it’s not the longest-running serial, General Hospital is the longest-running soap opera currently on air.
The daytime drama outlasted other soaps to become a mainstay for many households! From legendary Laura’s (Genie Francis) many decades on and off and back on as the show’s leading heroine to Anna Devane’s (Finola Hughes) exploits to Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and his mobster activities, GH certainly knows how to please its viewers.
It is one of four soap operas currently on the air. The other three daytime dramas include Days of our Lives (DOOL), The Young and the Restless (YR), and The Bold and the Beautiful (BB). General Hospital (GH) airs weekdays on ABC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
