Soap Opera Digest reports that the fan favorite will be making a quick return to Port Charles as Ned Ashton, a character he took over in 1991 and has played on-again, off-again since.
"I love everybody over there -- the crew, all the directors, Frank [Valentini, executive producer] and I get along great," Kurth says. "So, I was very excited to hear that I could come back and work with Lisa [LoCicero, Olivia] one more time."
The actor had been appearing on both GH and DAYS before being placed back on contract at DAYS earlier this year. Watch for his return appearance on GH on Monday, October 19.
Another General Hospital favorite will also be returning. For more information about Jon Lindstrom stepping back into the role of Kevin Collins, click here.
