    After 21 years.


    Updated: September 27.

    Steve Burton shot his final scenes as Jason today. They will air on October 22.




    Original article: August 28.

    It has been a rumor for a while, but TV Guide finally confirmed that series favorite Steve Burton (Jason) will be exiting "GH." Burton will be shooting his final scenes on September 25, so viewers can expect to see his last material play out in late October or early November.

    The actor has been playing mob enforcer Jason Morgan since 1991. He cited personal reasons for leaving but noted that he was not completely shutting the door on the series.

    Soaps.com wishes him all the best on his future endeavors.

    Sad. I was hoping Jason, Sam and their baby would live happily ever after. I guess this means Sam ends up with McBain. Not a bad consolation prize.

    Maybe Lucky will come back for Liz. Don't like Liz with Jason.

    How sad for viewers and fans of the show. I wish SB the best though, but wow, he will be missed. He is irreplacable.

    I have been watching G.H. for over thirty years. Jason (Steve Burton) was by far my favorite actor on G.H. for the entire time. He is so much my favorite that for the past few months I fast forward to his scenes and skip the rest. It is time for me to let go, I can't watch it without him, he is such a believable actor. I wish him well and hope to see him on his future projects soon. He will be missed.

    I have watched GH for a very long time. I love the character of Jason Morgan and Love to see Jason and Sonny working together. I was not happy because Jason and Sonny were not working very much together in recent months. I did not like the Jasam storylines either. I know he has to do what is best for Steve. I can't help but wonder the way the shows were written played a part in his leaving. I love Sonny so I will keep watching but I will miss Jason mixing it up on my favorite show.
