'General Hospital' Sets a Tentative Date for Production to Begin Again Amid Pandemic

General Hospital is planning its return.

The ABC soap opera is setting a tentative date for return to production in mid-July, Deadline reported Friday (June 26).

Like almost all other TV and movie productions, General Hospital came to a halt in production amid the ongoing global health crisis.

The show is joining some other soap operas in their first steps at getting back to a normal schedule.

“CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful restarted production last week. It was paused after the first day over what the production company revealed as multiple false positive tests results. Its testing protocols were adjusted, the lab used to process tests was changed, and the series has been taping again since this Wednesday. The Young and the Restless is targeting a July 6 return to production. All shows follow strict COVID-19 safety guidelines,” Deadline reported.

General Hospital is the longest-running American soap opera in production, as well as longest-running scripted television drama currently in production.

Here’s what happened to Bold & The Beautiful when they restarted…
