    It's official. Soap Opera Digest reports that ABC has confirmed Rebecca Herbst will be staying on as Elizabeth.

    Updated: February 18

    Only one month ago, it was announced that Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth) would be leaving the cast this spring but it appears that TPTB have changed their mind. According to preliminary reports, it looks as though the popular actress will be signing on to stay with the series.

    Soaps.com will let you know more as soon as we receive more information.

    On her way out.

    A rep at ABC has confirmed that Rebecca Herbst will be leaving Port Charles. Per their statement: "Storyline dictates the exit of Elizabeth Webber this spring. The next few months promise to be a 'not to miss' story for the character. We at ABC and General Hospital wish Rebecca Herbst nothing but the best in all of her future endeavors."

    Rebecca has played the role of Elizabeth since 1997, enjoying front burner storylines and popular romances with both Lucky (Jonathan Jackson) and Jason (Steve Burton) over the years. However, since the reveal of Elizabeth's affair with Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) and the actress' return from maternity leave late last year, she hasn't been given much to do. There's no word on how exactly Elizabeth will be written out, but Soaps.com will keep you updated.

    This is horrible news. Her character is totally redeemable. Best wishes to Rebecca. Hate to see her go.

    This is not surprising but I wish they would have given her more to work with. I think she was not only redeemable but also a great fleshed out character. What about the kids?

    THANK GOD. I have loathed this character since her conversion from bad girl to self-righteous twit. She should take Robin with her. The two of them could spend the remainder of their lives judging people.

    I hope she is leaving because she wanted to and not other reasons. She is a great actress. Her character was one of my favorites for years until recently. I am not to disappointed though because of what her character has become. Cheating on Lucky with that retarded Nikolas was not a good move on the writers part. Nikolas has always went after Lucky's girls and her character fell into the trap. I hope that before she leaves the show her character can find out the truth about Lucky being the real father of her third child.

    So sorry to hear that Rebecca Herbst is leaving the show. I loved Elizabeth and Lucky and Elizabeth and Jason. But I guess it just once again hits us fans that if your favorite character isn't part of the world of Sonny, you are just not meant to be part of the show. Too bad, the show is going to loose a lot of fans. Wish Ms. Herbst all the best of luck and hope to see you soon on another show.
