The Corinthos patriarch may be in prison, but he won't be leaving our screens anytime soon. Maurice Benard (Sonny) has inked a new deal at General Hospital! ABC Soaps In Depth broke the news.

Benard, who began playing the dimpled mob boss in 1993, tweeted:

 Sonny's current storyline finds him locked away at Pentonville for AJ's (Sean Kanan) murder. In lock-up, he has to contend with two of his greatest enemies, rival mob boss Johnny Zacchara (Brandon Barash) and sociopath Franco (Roger Howarth).


Back home in Port Charles, a war is waging over his territory and he's once again a daddy. Are you excited about Benard staying put at GH? Sound off in the comments!
