Tuesday, April 1 marks the 51st anniversary of ABC’s “General Hospital.” To honor its special day, the series is promising viewers plenty of love, life and nostalgia, which includes the re-appearance of two of its most popular and celebrated actresses per a report by Daytime Confidential.
According to the website, Sarah Brown and Tamara Braun, both of whom portrayed Carly Corinthos on the daytime soap prior to her current portrayer, Laura Wright, joining in 2005, will make cameo appearances alongside Wright in the special episode of the series. This marks Brown’s third non-consecutive stint (brief or otherwise) on “GH” since originating the role of Carly in 1996. After departing the soap in 2001, Brown returned in January 2008 to portray the newly created role of mob princess Claudia Zacchara. She departed the series in 2009. Braun portrayed Carly almost immediately following Brown’s departure in 2001 until her contract expired in 2005.

If you’re ready for more secrets, scandals, passion and romance than ever before, you’re in luck: The Emmy-nominated online soap opera “The Bay” — produced by the Gregori J Martin founded company LANYfilms Productions — is returning with an all-new Chapter 12 that promises to deliver sudser standards with a serious bang!

TVGN is proving why it’s now the “the new way to watch soaps.” With the network already picking up encore airing rights to “The Young and the Restless” this past summer, and “The Bold and the Beautiful” earlier this month, the network plans to provide soap fans with even more “soap” for their viewing pleasure courtesy of the new documentary, “Who Shot the Daytime Soap?” Airing Monday, December 16 at 8:00 PM ET/PT, preceded by airings of “B&B” at 6:30 PM ET/PT and “Y&R” at 7:00 PM ET/PT, the documentary tackles the history of daytime soap operas as told by those who were there during the good times, the bad times and the new times.
“The past five years have seen a collapse of epic proportion within the soap opera industry. What was once a formidable lineup of no less than 14 network soap operas in the 1980′s has collapsed to just four – ‘General Hospital’ on ABC, ‘Days of our Lives’ on NBC and ‘The Young and the Restless’ and ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ on CBS and now TVGN,” is the opening statement from the documentary that features interviews with several daytime legends, veteran stars, and a host of talents from behind the scenes that have helped make the soap opera genre the longest running form of television entertainment.
UPDATE 10:01 PM ET: Carnes just tweeted, “Ah, Port Charles, it is!”
While hints of a possible return to “General Hospital” began on his Twitter page last week, where he referred to numerous Ports in the world (Portlandia, Port Hueneme, Port of Los Angeles, Port of Long Beach), an ABC representative confirms to Soap Opera Network that actor Ryan Carnes will be reprising his role as Lucas Jones, the adopted son of Bobbie (Jacklyn Zeman) and Tony Jones (Brad Maule), on the ABC Daytime drama series. “Like a ship lost in the night at sea, wondering where my next port will be…,” Carnes tweeted on Wednesday, December 4.
With nearly 24 minutes in total airtime between them, LANYentertainment released the first two installments of “The Bay: The Series” chapter 11 on the official “Bay” website yesterday. Fans of the series will not only get caught up in the happenings in Bay City, but they’ll also get their fill of drama, sex, drugs, romance, deception, murder, and much more.
The Emmy-nominated online soap opera “The Bay” is back for its 11th chapter, and the sudser’s return is expected to be edgier, bigger and better than ever!
All of the fun begins Thursday, December 5, when two brand new installments of the series will stream back to back at 3:15PM ET / 12:15PM PT.
