Kimberly McCullough will be returning to General Hospital in the role of Dr. Robin Scorpio, Soap Opera Digest reported Wednesday.

McCullough originated the role of the beloved character in 1985 at the age of 6. She left the show periodically over the years but came back full time in 2004. She left the role again in February 2012 when her character was presumed dead when she left to pursue a directing career. The actress has now signed a contract to resume the role that broke barriers. The character of Robin was one of the rare ones were a child was allowed to naturally age into the role and not be recast. Robin was also the most high profile character with HIV. McCullough earned her second Daytime Emmy in 1996 as she portrayed the character as a teenager who suffered the consequences of unprotected sex.

"Robin is such an important part of the history of GENERAL HOSPITAL. It will be so wonderful to see her come back and what that effect will have on the canvas," GH Executive Producer Frank Valentini said.

McCullough took to Twitter and shared her excitement that the news was out. She was happy to return to the Port Charles canvas.

An airdate has not yet been given but it is expected that McCullough will begin airing again this fall. Watch a video of McCullough in her iconic role.
