ABC has announced that Franco-- who previously appeared on the soap last Fall -- will be returning to the soap this summer.

"We are so thrilled to welcome James back to 'General Hospital,'" says Executive Producer Jill Farren Phelps. "We had such a great time with him and are very excited that he decided to return to Port Charles to take care of unfinished business."

"Working on 'General Hospital' was a great experience. I love the cast, writers, directors and producers. They have become a new family for me. I can't wait for the work we will do this summer," says Franco.

Franco (Franco) first pops back up on Wednesday, June 30. Franco will once again set his focus on destroying Jason (Steve Burton). In order to combat him, Jason is forced to team up with Dante (Dominic Zamprogna)-- you know, the dude who recently put Jason's nephew in jail.

Drama!
