Perhaps because ABC owns General Hospital outright, the network sometimes doesn't announce if their sole surviving soap opera has been renewed for another season. However, they'd certainly let us know if the show had been cancelled! Since the soap is still airing, we can assume they renewed it for 2015-16. Will Gh survive to see a 54th season? How will it do in the ratings? Stay tuned.
Debuting on April 1st of 1963, General Hospital revolves around the loves, lives, and deaths of the people of Port Charles, New York. The current season's cast includes Maurice Benard, Laura Wright, Nancy Grahn, Finola Hughes, Dominic Zamprogna, Rebecca Herbst, Kelly Monaco, Sonya Eddy, Roger Howarth, Carolyn Hennesy, Billy Miller, Vinessa Antoine, William deVry, Kathleen Gati, Kirsten Storms, Chad Duell, Haley Pullos, Bryan Craig, Ryan Paevey, Tyler Christopher, Lisa Lo Cicero, Teresa Castillo, and Jane Elliot.

Just as they are preparing to split up, Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan on Sunday won their second consecutive Daytime Emmy Award for entertainment talk show hosts for their syndicated chat show “Live with Kelly and Michael.”
Meanwhile, CBS’ “The Talk” won its first Daytime Emmy for entertainment talk show.
The Daytime Emmy win capped a roller coaster two weeks for Ripa and Strahan after the news broke that Strahan would be moving on to “Good Morning America” full-time in the fall. Ripa protested the decision to keep her in the dark until the last minute by sitting out three episodes of “Live” during the week of April 18.
Ripa previously won Daytime Emmys for entertainment talk show host in 2011 and 2012 during her run on “Live” with previous co-host Regis Philbin.The Daytime Emmy Awards were held Sunday night in Los Angeles but the ceremony was not carried on TV. For »

ABC’s “General Hospital” (24 nominations), CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful” (23) and NBC’s “Days of Our Lives” (16) follow.

CBS’ “Young and the Restless” and ABC’s “General Hospital” lead the list of nominees for this year’s Daytime Emmy Awards, which will not be airing on TV for the second time in the past three years.
The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has nixed plans for a telecast of the ceremony because of the cost. Last year NATAS set a two-year deal with Pop, the CBS and Lionsgate-owned cabler, for telecast of the show after a debacle in 2014 when the ceremony aired as a live webcast.
But NATAS decided that the six-figure cost of producing the ceremony for TV was too high even with the license fee offered by Pop. The New York-based academy is believed to be in discussions for another webcast partner.
