Joanna Johnson returns to The Bold and the Beautiful next month to help introduce a new character to the canvas. The character, though unknown to viewers, will be well known to the characters currently on the canvas. Johnson is an original B&B cast member.

One of The Bold and the Beautiful's original cast members will return to the show next month with a surprise... at least to viewers. Joanna Johnson will reprise the role of Karen Spencer as part of B&B's plan to usher in a new character to the canvas.

Karen will arrive in Los Angeles with a previously unknown daughter named Caroline after Karen's late sister. According to TVGuide's Michael Logan, Caroline is a "twentysomething design student who is hoping to land a job at Forrester Creations." Logan also reveals that while viewers have never met Caroline, the on-screen characters will carry on as though they've always known her.

Linsey Godfrey will tackle the role of Caroline. While Godfrey is a newcomer to daytime, she has appeared previously in guest spots on Wizards of Waverly Place and CSI: Miami.

Some fans have already started speculating about the identity of Caroline's father. Could the show be attempting to revisit Ridge and the elder Caroline's romance with Caroline's twin sister? Not according the a B&B spokesperson. A show rep told TVGuide that the younger Caroline will not be related by blood to anyone currently on the canvas. That, in spite of the fact that Caroline goes by the last name of Spencer.

Johnson originated the role of Caroline Spencer on The Bold and the Beautiful in 1987. She remained with the show through 1990, when Caroline lost her battle with cancer. In 1991, Johnson returned to B&B as Karen Spencer, Caroline's long-lost twin sister. In her second go-round, Johnson remained with the show for another three years. Johnson returned briefly in 2000 as the ghost of Caroline. Her most recent stint on B&B was as Karen in 2009.

Johnson and Godfrey will first air on March 27.
