Now that Steve Burton is set to step back into Port Charles life, the actor teased GH fans on the possibility that Jonathan Jackson might reprise the iconic role of Lucky Spencer.
Playing It Cagey
A Twitter follower and GH fan remarked that if Jonathan Jackson too returned to GH, all her daytime TV-watcing would be complete!
Burton had an intriguing reply: “Never know,” the actor Tweeted back. He has also said there are lots more surprises in store related to his GH comeback.

ABC programming exec Nathan Varni, a favorite of ours here at Soap Cities, said in a comment on Facebook group General Hospital Raw and Uncensored merely that Jackson is still on Nashville. But that doesn’t mean he couldn’t do GH too!
The Dark Side to the Return of Big Names
However much we would love Jackson to reprise the role of Lucky, we wouldn’t want it to be at the expense of more of our GH faves. Just sayin’, right dear Soap Cities readers?
We’ve heard that Burton’s salary and stipend needs may have played a part in the recent ouster of one of our fave GH actors, Rebecca Budig (Hayden Barnes). We’ve also heard that GH playing super-hardball in Will deVry’s (Julian Jerome) contract negotiations was due to the need for more budgetary leeway.
So what do you think, dear readers? Do you think Jackson could be headed back to Port Charles too? Would you be glad if he were? Don’t you love how nothing is impossible in daytime and you really can never say never?! We sure do!
