New twists and turns have taken place on General Hospital recently, and fans think these have paved the way for an old character to make a comeback. Many think that upcoming GH episodes might bring Jasper “Jax” Jacks back to our screens, so let’s explore more.

Ingo Rademacher, who played the character of Jax, was forced to leave General Hospital after 25 years on the soap opera. This is because the actor refused to comply with the production’s vaccine mandate for actors and crew.

So, let’s discover whether there’s a chance he could come back to the show as fans theorise a return of the Jax attack!

Why fans think Jasper “Jax” Jacks is coming back to GH

You’re not the only one wondering what in the world is going on between Nina, Carly, and Sonny. Sonny and Carly are over and now that Nina is on the scene, fans aren’t keen. One brilliant way to get Sonny and Carly back on track is by throwing a certain someone into the mix.

That’s right, fans think it’s time for Jax to come back to Port Charles and whisk Nina away. If that doesn’t go to plan then Carly could be a potential pairing for Jas, it certainly seems as though GH writers are playing Cupid at the moment.

Other fans think that Jax will be drawn back to Port Charles because he loves a slice of drama. Jax had gone to Australia on a business trip with no plans to make an imminent return. However, if he hears about all the happenings going on back home, it is likely he might make a return.

It is not thought that the original actor, Ingo, will return but a re-cast could be on the cards.

Jax on General Hospital’s farewell explored

Jax was portrayed by Ingo Rademacher on and off from January 31, 1996, to November 22, 2021.

The actor broke the news on the show that he was leaving during a conversation with his ex-wife Carly (Laura Wright). Jax exclaimed “Joss didn’t tell you? I’m leaving town.” The character then explained how he had business to deal with in Sydney.

When Carly asked if he would return for Thanksgiving or Christmas, Jax shut down the question: “I’m kind of on the outs with everyone in Port Charles right now.”

It seems Jax will stay in his home continent until it is officially confirmed the character is returning. Let’s keep our fingers crossed, after all, Carly needs him right now!
