General Hospital (GH) casting news revealed a shocker— Matt Cohen, the actor who plays Griffin Munro—has decided not to renew his contract. He wanted to be able to pursue other acting gigs. As a result, he will exit.
In normal circumstances, this would not be as shocking. What makes this one more startling is that Matt’s last airdate is Thursday, March 21. And, GH still hasn’t confirmed his exit, which is adding to the mystery. Here’s what you need to know about what’s coming up.
General Hospital Spoilers—Matt’s Exit Confirmed
There have been rumors for quite some time that the actor was planning on leaving the show. Back in February, several media outlets reported that he didn’t sign a new contract. At the time, it was suggested that he may be Ryan Chamberlain’s (Jon Lindstrom) final victim. But that never happened.
And, the truth is, it was an educated guess as the timeline fit. Ryan was busy on a killing spree and Griffin was a problem for him.
According to Nerds and Beyond, Matt’s last airdate is March 21 and he will leave town to find himself. They suggest that the door is open for him to return at a later date, should the storylines permit.
GH Spoilers — His Exit Storyline
In the General Hospital preview, Anna DeVanne (Finola Hughes) approaches Griffin for advice, presumably about Alex (Finola Hughes) and the mind mapping mess. Griffin snaps at her that he is in no condition to give advice to anyone.
In the same scene, which will air today, we expect Griffin will tell Anna that he needs to get away and find himself. He may say that it’s been very difficult since Kiki Jerome (Hayley Erin) died and he needs to gather his thoughts and regroup.
Whatever the reason is, General Hospital viewers will miss him and they hope that he will eventually come back to Port Charles for, at the very least, a little visit.
