General Hospital Comings and Goings: Joe Flanigan Exits GH

ABC General Hospital spoilers reveal that Joe Flanigan is out as Dr. Neil Byrne on the ABC sudser. He was last seen on September 1 as he lay unresponsive in Alexis Davis’ (Nancy Lee Grahn) bed.

General Hospital spoilers – Joe Flanigan is out as Neil Byrne

Flanigan debuted as a psychiatrist in February 2019. During that time he took on Alexis Davis as a patient. He also had a penchant for hooking up with younger women via dating sites. And he had a thing for Russian history.

After he began treating Alexis they noticed a considerable warmth in the room but when they decided to pursue their attraction to each other disaster ensued. Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud) blabbed to Julian Jerome (William deVry) that she saw them together and he took matters into his own hands.

At the hospital, he loudly defended Alexis’ honor and the result was that both eventually lost their licenses to practice their professions.

General Hospital spoilers – Did Alexis Davis prove to be too much for Neil Byrne?

Just because Flanigan is gone from GH doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy his acting talent. His next project will be on Apple TV’s See. Flanigan worked on the series before the quarantine, and the project hopes to resume production in October.

The series debuted on November 1, 2019, and has been renewed for a second season. Like other film and television productions worldwide, See was sidelined due to the COVID-19 pandemic which shut down production in light of safety concerns.

See is a science fiction web series produced for Apple TV+ and stars Jason Momoa and Alfre Woodard. Other featured actors include Sylvia Hoeks, Hera Hilmar, and Christian Camargo. It is written by Steven Knight and directed by Francis Lawrence. Executive producers include Knight, Lawrence, Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping, and Kristen Campo.
