And the circle is complete. Following renewals for Days of Our Lives, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful, comes word from Deadline that General Hospital has been picked up for another season by ABC.
Unlike its fellow daytime sudsers, GH is owned by the broadcast company which airs it, so there is no official renewal — and pick-ups are done on a season-by-season basis. According to Deadline, the serial will remain on The Mouse House's schedule for the 2014-15 TV season. In other GH news, head writer Ron Carlivati revealed on Twitter he just signed a new pact to continue scripting the almost 51-year-old soap.
