A daytime favorite is checking back in to "General Hospital."

Emmy winning actress Genie Francis is set to return to the role of Laura Spencer to help celebrate the show's 50th anniversary year.

Francis created the role back in 1977. Her character's wedding to on-screen love Luke back in 1981 remains the soap world's highest rated show, ever.

Francis will make her debut back in Port Charles in February.
