Are We Getting The General Hospital Season 59?
The show has 57 seasons that are loved by everyone… Although the 58th installment was in development at first when the Covid-19 pandemic hit the world vigorously. Just like the rest of Hollywood, ‘General Hospital’ too had to hit the pause button on its production.
Needless to say, this created a dent in the show’s stock of original episodes.
In order to fulfill up with the pre-shot stock of new episodes, ABC decided to cut down on their airing schedule. For the new original episodes to last until the lifting of the shutdown, ABC strategized to air 4 new episodes and one old episode each week.
However, the fresh episodes ran out of stock by May 21 leaving ABC to rerun the classic ‘General Hospital’ episodes…

The pandemic has handed out some tough challenges, especially to the entertainment industry. Nevertheless, as most of Hollywood is gradually returning to their normal schedules, ‘General Hospital’ too has got back up on its feet.
After the brief hiatus, ‘General Hospital’ has resumed production work and new episodes have started appearing on television screens since August. ‘General Hospital’ had put a pause on production mid-March but, in June, one of the cast members had teased recommencement of the production work.
Tristan Rogers, the actor who plays Robert Scorpio in ‘General Hospital’ said on “Twitter”, “OK I think I’m lighting a fire here but I tend to do that. Production has been ok’d for June 12. And awwwaaaayyyywwweeee go”. Naturally, the news had fans jumping with joy.
However, resuming production and the airing of fresh episodes were entirely different things. Shooting for the new episodes of season 58 began in July and the original airing of these episodes began on August 3.
