Get ready, General Hospital fans, because Genie Francis' iconic character, Laura Spencer, will be heading back to Port Charles this week.
EW.com reports that the returning Francis will first reappear on the ABC soap that made her famous on Friday, June 5. The exclusive item also shared a first look photo of Laura's return that includes the character's son Nikolas (Tyler Christopher).
As for what brings Luke's (Anthony Geary) lover back to town, producers of the soap tease it's because "her family needs her." Of course, fans are also hoping that she'll play a big part in the exit of Luke when Geary, who announced his retirement last month, finishes up his run on the series later this summer.
Francis' last appearance to GH was in August 2013, when she dropped in as part of the series' 50th anniversary after a short stint as The Young and the Restless' Genevieve Atkinson. She joined GH as Laura in 1977.
