Dancing With the Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy recently had a guest appearance as handyman/dancer/choreographer Anton during the Nurses' Ball on General Hospital. He got to dance with Sam, played by Kelly Monaco — aka his brother Val Chmerkovskiy's dance partner on DWTS All-Stars.

The door was left open for Maks to return to play Anton again. So... what's up with that?

At the Race to Erase MS gala, Access Hollywood asked Maks for a GH update. "We are talking with the production,” Maks said. “They're — you know, soaps are interesting.” Did he have fun? “I loved it! One storyline goes, another one comes. It's very interesting how the writing comes about. They're saying that they want to have me back. They talked to The Powers That Be, you know, to make sure schedules work and everything, but there are a lot of other projects that I'm very, very happy about."

So don’t put GH at the top of your Maks calendar, but know that the wheels are in motion out there. It sounds like Maks has a lot of irons in the fire, and of course we’re also hoping to see him back in the ballroom for other dances on Season 16, as well as hopefully the fall Season 17!

Do you want to see Maks on General Hospital again? Sound off in the comments!
