"General Hospital" spoilers previously revealed that actor Steve Burton will be returning to the soap opera in the near future, and fans couldn't be more confused about what part he'll be playing. Burton, who previously played the role of Jason Morgan, will be returning the soap, but his former character is currently being portrayed by actor Billy Miller. So, what gives? Some fans believed that Burton was coming back to the soap opera for short appearance. However, Soap Opera Spy reports that is not the case.

Will the real Jason Morgan please stand up?

According to the report, Steve Burton is back on "General Hospital" for the long haul. The actor's return to the ABC soap opera is said to be long-term, but what does this mean for the character of Jason Morgan? Will Burton return to his former role, meaning Billy Miller will get the boot by the network? Some "GH" fans are speculating that Burton will return as the real Jason Morgan, and that Billy Miller has been an impostor all along. This certainly wouldn't be the first time that a soap has used the impostor storyline, as "Days of our Lives" shocked fans decades ago when they revealed that Drake Hogestyn's character wasn't actually Roman Brady, but someone sent by Salem villain, Stefano DiMera, to hurt the Brady family.

Is Billy Miller leaving 'GH?'

"GH" fans are now wondering if Billy Miller's character is actually related to the real Jason Morgan in some way. They're also worried that Miller could be let go by the soap due to Burton's return. While many viewers are delighted to have Steve back on the show, they have grown to love Billy's portrayal of the character, and losing a talented actor is never a good thing for a show.

Hopefully, the return of Steve Burton means a juicy storyline for "General Hospital" fans to watch play out in the upcoming months, and not the dismissal of a fan favorite actor.

Two characters set to leave the soap opera

Steve Burton has been off "General Hospital" since 2012 when he left the show and later joined rival soap opera "The Young and the Restless," where he worked from 2013-2016.

His return is highly anticipated by fans, who have also learned to two "GH" characters will be leaving the soap. Rebecca Budig, who plays Hayden Barnes on the show is set to leave, as well as Kathleen Gati's character, Dr. Liesl Obrecht. The two will be involved in a storyline that is sure to shock viewers as well as take them both off of the show. Hayden is rumored to be killed off by Liesl, but nothing has been confirmed at this point.
