The announcement comes as General Hospital continues to celebrate its 50th anniversary on the network.

GH hasn’t announced Marcil’s return date, but sources say it’ll happen sometime before April 1.

Marcil is expected to appear on the daytime soap for more than a few weeks, meaning fans will see the love triangle between Jax (Ingo Rademacher, who will be returning at the same time as Marcil), Brenda and Sonny (Maurice Benard).

Marcil originated the role of Brenda in 1992. After an eight-year absence from the show, she returned to GH for a year from 2010-11.

Marcil’s other credits include starring on NBC’s Las Vegas series, appearing in Prince’s “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World” video and guest-starring on Hawaii Five-0.
