Soap Opera Network has learned that Michael Saucedo is set to return to ABC's "General Hospital" in the coming months to reprise his role of Juan Santiago, the biological son of Lily Corinthos (Lilly Melgar) and Miguel Morez (Ricky Martin). While storyline details are being kept under wraps, fans can expect his return to provide lots of twists and turns that will send shockwaves all across Port Charles. Saucedo was last seen on "GH" in 2001, when his character left town to pursue a music career in South America. In 2012, it was revealed that Juan was the adopted cousin of Sabrina Santiago (Teresa Castillo).
On Wednesday, October 23, "General Hospital's" Jason Thompson (Patrick Drake) will be giving ABC's "The View" a male perspective on the day's hot topics as the daytime star is scheduled to co-host the chatfest alongside Sherri Shepherd, Jenny McCarthy and Whoopi Goldberg. The Canadian born actor will also be chatting it up with the stars of ABC's "The Middle" as the cast celebrates the show's 100th episode airing that night.
On Thursday, November 28 from 7:00 PM ET/PT through 1:00 AM ET/PT, SOAPnet will present a six hour "General Hospital" Nurses Ball marathon comprising all six episodes dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the ABC Daytime drama series, which aired earlier this year on both ABC and SOAPnet. The episodes include the return of Ingo Rademacher as Jasper "Jax" Jacks, Vanessa Marcil as Brenda Barrett, Richard Simmons as a caricature of himself, Rick Springfield's Noah Drake singing "Jessie's Girl," Magic Milo (Drew Cheetwood) and the gang, which includes "Dancing with the Stars'" Maksim Chmerkovskiy, doing a strip tease. Sabrina Santago (Teresa Castillo) and Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) closed out the ball as they sang "You're Not Alone" to Emma Scorpio-Drake (Brooklyn Rae Silzer) as Port Charles' finest gathered around the stage.
