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.
