LOS ANGELES, Oct. 28 (UPI) -- Kimberly McCullough will return as Robin Scorpio on General Hospital.

The 37-year-old actress first played the character at age 7 in 1985, and will return to the ABC soap opera in November. Executive producer Frank Valentini tweeted he was "elated" to announce the news Tuesday.

"Kimberly is part of our GH family and everyone is happy to welcome her home," he said in a statement.

"There is some really cool stuff planned for Robin. It's a race against time and a trio is formed in a desperate attempt to help save a life that hangs in the balance, but that's all you're going to get out of me," he joked.

"I can't wait to get out of my scrubs!" McCullough added. "Although I can't promise anything. Either way, I'm back to kick some butt and tell some truths!"

The actress portrayed Robin from 1985 to 1996, and has intermittently returned to the series since. She last appeared on-screen Jan. 19, just three months before the show's 52nd anniversary. General Hospital is the longest-running American soap opera currently in production.

In addition, McCullough has played the character on Port Charles, All My Children and General Hospital: Night Shift. She is also known for guest starring as Beth Reinhart on CBS drama Joan of Arcadia and Deena on FX series The Shield.
