The last original episode of General Hospital (GH) is set to air on Thursday, May 21, according to TV Insider. GH halted production of new episodes as of March 16.
ABC plans to fill the void, at least for the first three weeks, by re-airing classic Nurses Ball episodes from Monday, May 25 until Friday, June 12. The glamorous event, that features many original musical performances, was founded in 1994 by Lucy Coe (Lynn Herring).
GH episodes airing the week of May 25 will include three Nurses Ball themed shows from 2014 and two from 2015.
“Without question, the Nurses Ball remains fictional Port Charles’ most glamorous charity event,” the network in a statement. “Dedicated to HIV/AIDS awareness and research, the Nurses Ball features exquisite red carpet fashion, original music, awe-inspiring musical and dance performances, and plenty of intrigue, excitement and drama.”
The network hopes to encourage fans to re-experience “the magic, music and mayhem as ABC reaches into the vault to showcase some of General Hospital’s greatest hits from the Nurse’s Ball.”
But what Nurses Ball episodes will ABC air from June 1 to 12? Keep watching GH to find out!
