After a picture of Steve Burton as Jason Morgan aired on "General Hospital" a lot of fans got excited that this might be a spoiler and he would be back. On Feb. 4, Steve actually went to his Twitter to confirm that he is still under contract for "Young and the Restless" and not going anywhere.
A fan asked him if he was still under contract and Steve replied that yes he actually just re-signed it. That means he is not going anywhere no matter what fans are wanting to see. There are rumors that they might bring back his character with another actor though of course.
Steve even told fans he was not going anywhere and revealed that he has no idea if he will be paired with Melissa Egan. It is going to be great to see what they decide to do with his character, but it will be Steve you see on "Y&R" and not on "GH" according to him. This will disappoint some fans.
