Port Charles was a 1997-2003 American soap opera set in the fictional New York town of Port Charles, the same setting for the long-running soap opera General Hospital. The two programs aired on the ABC television network and sometimes shared characters and story lines. Although initially a spinoff focused on the lives of the doctors at the local hospital, the show later shifted its focus to more supernatural-themed plots (vampires, angels, etc.). Starting in 2000, the show switched to a telenovela-inspired series of 13-week story arcs, unusual for American soap operas.
