Is 'General Hospital' Pre-Empted Due to New Year's Eve?

If you’re a General Hospital fan, you’re aware that there are times that the soap will periodically get pre-empted. This week, unfortunately, may be one of those times. The end of the year is a special time of year for everyone — and that includes the networks. As such, General Hospital may be one of the shows that are pre-empted this week.

‘General Hospital’ was pre-empted for the Thanksgiving holiday

During the week of November 21, General Hospital fans only got to watch new episodes of the show for three days that week. The Thursday episode of the show was pre-empted for the Thanksgiving holiday, and the Friday episode of the show was a repeat. However, there was a lot of drama to be packed into three short days. That week, Valentin had uncovered the truth about Brook Lynn. (And, yes, folks, that means he knows the truth about the baby!) To say he was angry about it would be the height of understatement. 

The show was pre-empted on Christmas eve, too

Unfortunately for General Hospital fans, they weren’t able to watch a new episode of the show on Christmas eve, either. That week, the show only aired new episodes for four days. The Christmas eve episode was a repeat of the February 23, 2021 episode.

On that day, according to, Anna reached out to Peter and Maxie reached out to Nina to offer support.

It will feel strange watching some old episodes of the show, especially since we know where the storyline progresses from that point on. But unfortunately, the show will be pre-empted on New Year’s Eve, as well.

New episodes of ‘GH’ will air this week — but not on December 31

According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, new episodes of General Hospital will begin airing on December 27. And at that time, there will be plenty of drama to go around — and to catch up on. The outlet reports that Nina’s case for fraud will take a “shocking turn” when Sonny decides to testify on her behalf. Ultimately, the spoilers tease that Sonny’s testimony will lead to the case against her being thrown out. But that’s far from the end of the drama — because she’ll still have Carly’s fury to deal with.

“The results of Leo Falconeri’s (Easton Rocket Sweda) evaluation will come in while Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud) gets a special present from Liesl,” reports the outlet. “There’ll also be some New Year’s Eve fun, so some great action’s coming up over the next two weeks.”

But on December 31, a repeat of the February 24, 2021, episode will air. In that episode, Maxie passionately defended Peter to Britt. (Boy, we bet she’ll look back on that time with great embarrassment!) Meanwhile, Robert lamented that there’s no way to stop Maxie from marrying Peter. (Oh, Maxie, if only you knew what was to come!)

Even with this repeat, it sounds like these next few weeks on General Hospital will be quite the barn-burners.
