General Hospital POLL: Fans Sound Off – Is It Time For Sonny Corinthos To Leave Port Charles For Good?

General Hospital spoilers say that a lot of fans can’t help but wonder: is it time for Sonny Corinthos to go, or should the character be recast with another actor? This comes after Mauirce Benard hinted that he is looking to retire from the daytime television world sooner rather than later. Here’s what you need to know!

General Hospital POLL: Fans Sound Off – Is It Time For Sonny Corinthos To Leave Port Charles For Good?

Just recently Maurice Benard suggested that he is ready to hang up his boots and call it a day on the set of General Hospital. After all, he’s been on the show for nearly 30 years. This has prompted a lot of fans to wonder if his character Sonny Corinthos is going to get killed off or if he will be recast.

Of course, it didn’t take long at all for both fans and critics to weigh in on the matter. Many of them took to social media to write, “Personally, I think they have ruined the character of Sonny. Since the beyond stupid Nixon Falls story the show has sucked. There is no way the old Sonny would have forgiven Nina for destroying his family, and he would have made her pay. I loathe Sonny and stupid Nina together. In addition, no way Ava would be any kind of friend to Nina after Nina cut Avery out of her stomach. The writers have ruined the show. I fast forward through Sonny/Nina scenes. He should retire, his character isn’t the same, and isn’t worth watching. Cut Nina too. Together they have ruined the show,” along with, If he wants to retire I fully understand. but instead of possibly killing off his character … why not recast him?”

General Hospital Spoilers: What’s Next For Sonny?

Another fan wrote, “Sonny could never be recast ! I would hate to see him go and the show would never be the same. Bringing on all these new characters will not save this show . They need good writing for the core characters plain and simple . The producers, directors and “writers “ need to binge watch all the old shows . They need to really know the history and the characters that made the show what it was . Right now it is just a jumbled mess.”

Sonny needs to stay and the writers need to change his story line. I do not like the Nina and Sonny story line and I do not like how Michael is acting. All this hatred and arguing is nonsense! The whole thing is stupid.
Jason and Jax needs to come back too.
Writers let’s get it together please !

I want to see Sonny and Carley back together. Sonny is the show when you have him acting like Sonny.

I’ve watched for 50+ years. I’ve loved sonny from the beginning. Because even as a mob boss he was loyal to his family and friends. He lived by thst code. And now you’ve cHanged that. You’ve let him look weak. He’s been conned by Nina and instead of choosing to be loyal to his family, he’s a shell of the real sonny. If he leaves I won’t miss him now. Very sad

Amen! I have watched the show since 1965 or so and Sonny is one of my all-time favorite characters. That is, until the Nixon Falls debacle. I have defended Sonny all through the years on social media, even when he did things I didn’t like. But this takes it to a whole new level. This watered-down version of Sonny is sickening and Nina is just obnoxious. Both can ride off into the sunset for all I care. They are ruining GH!

i love Maurice he makes the show but i understand if he’s ready to retire.Sonny has definitely changed since Nixon Falls..and not for the good i despise him with Nina no one ever came before his family and he sure didn’t like dishonesty or betrayal he sure would’ve never let Nina get away with it,these writers are not doing a good job i understand change is good sometimes but not with Sonny and Nina maybe if it didn’t happen the way it did.. But Maurice if you retire Happy Retirement And God Bless will truly miss you 💙

I totally agree about the writers and Sonny. I wish he would stay but I too understand about retirement. I would prefer he retire before the writers do anymore damage to his character. The show will not be the same without him. Please get our old writers back or some that write like they did..

I am with so many GH fans who think this Sonny & Nina storyline is stupid, Sonny would never have forgiven nor believed Nina’s rational for destroying his family. I can’t believe Sonny do not see the snowball affects of Nina’s actions. Who are the writers that don’t understand we the GH fans know none of the characters would behave like that.

I hate what the writers has done to Sonny! He was a strong man, but now she is a reflection of Sonny! Please put him back with Carly and save the show!

Recast or if the guy they are hiring to replace Steve/Jason can take it over. Just don’t kill him off. So he can come back for special occasions

I also believe that the writers have made a terrible mistake trying just to create a story. They underestimated and devalued the essence of Sonny and Carly’s bond, which has proven through many years, that no matter how bad it got, they always still loved each other. The real Sonny would never allow someone to come between them, especially the way Nina did. MB may want to leave and maybe he will but Sonny and Carly will always remain a legendary couple of GH. However, as it stands now, their story has been trashed and I say shame on the writers. It will be a travesty for Sonny to leave in a story ending with his being without his true soulmate, Carly, the only woman who has lasted the test of time with him.

So agree. The program is going to pot. They need new writers.

I think it is a shame the way the writers have portrayed Sonny. He went from being a mob boss and family man to a limp rag with Nina. They are losing the viewers over this. I, myself, fast forward over the Nina/Sonny storyline, plus having Nina and Ava be besties after her stealing Avery from her body. A mother never forgets these things. The writers make Nina out to be the victim. She has done so many bad things that get overlooked. If Maurice wants to retire, leave the show and take Nina with you, never to return. But bring in someone strong for Carly.

I also agree about Sonny & Nina. I hate it, can’t stand Nina& how she flaunts herself to Sonny. He acts like a moron, putting the woman who knew who he was for 9 months in Nixon Falls, & turned against his family who he claims to love for a loser like Nina. Once he remembered he was Sonny & not Mike anymore, how could he remember being Mike when he didn’t know he was really Sonny Corinthos in Nixon Falls? Doesn’t make sense, bad writers. I’ve been watching GH since the 1960’s & I always loved the character of Sonny, not anymore. I love Carly & I don’t know how she could ever forgive Sonny for betraying her & Michael.
Michael is right I’m not wanting anything to do with Sonny for putting Nina before his mother & their kids. Time for Sonny to go, I can’t believe to say, I won’t miss him. How he gushes over Nina is gross.

A jumbled mess is the correct description for GH. Your post was very factual and made so much sense I agree 100%.
