Expect for ABC to change things up a bit next season, when it comes to scheduling its primetime soaps. According to Deadline, ABC has decided to air “a selected group” of shows in two continuous runs, in the fall and spring.
Some of the networks’ biggest and most buzzed about shows are included in the special group. Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy, Once Upon a Time and possibly Revenge are mentioned in the article. In-between their fall and spring runs, the show’s time slots will be filled by “bridge series.”

At the Paley Center, the actress, who recently reprised beloved Nurse Bobbie Spencer, shared her absolute joy over coming back to GH, her thoughts on a potential return for Bobbie's son Lucas and gave her thoughts on Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati.
Daytime Confidential: What is like to be back for the 50th Anniversary and under the new team of executive producer Frank Valentini and head writer Ron Carlivati?
Jackie Zeman: It’s great to be back. I’m happy it’s for the 50th, because that’s a big deal, but under this team is the biggest part of what you just said. Working with Mr. Valentini and Mr. Carlivati is amazing. I’ve worked with a lot of executive producers, everyone that has been on GH for 35 years, that’s a lot of EP’s. There is a new energy and revitalization to the show. There’s this respect for what’s gone on in the history, but they’ve taken General Hospital and instead of redoing old stuff, they’ve brought it into the present and into the future with all this exciting intrigue and romance. It’s compelling once again. That’s exciting to be a part of. READ MORE
