September is proving to be a big month for Sarah Michelle Gellar.

The star of CW' thriller "Ringer," which premieres Sept.13, is also making good on her promise to return to her soap roots on "All My Children" before the series ends its 41-year ABC run at the end of the month.

TV Guide reports that Gellar's return to her daytime alma mater takes place during the Sept. 21 pre-penultimate episode -- the same one ABC plans to dedicate to late cast member Mary Fickett.

So who will Gellar be playing? After her own urging that she not touch her previous role of Kendall Hart (now played by Alicia Minshew), Gellar will appear as a delusional hospital patient convinced she's Erica Kane's ( Susan Lucci) daughter. Her appearance will also include a run-in with fellow returning cast member and "CSI: Miami" star Eva La Rue.

Producer Julie Carruthers also teases the cameo, telling TVGuide, "It was a great pleasure to welcome Sarah back to Pine Valley and especially fun to have her character wink to the audience with fun lines that referenced her previous character."
