General Hospital fans rejoice! Robin Scorpio-Drake is returning to Port Charles this November. Fan-favorite actress Kimberly McCullough will reprise her role as Robin, and her storyline is already shaping up to be action-packed.
“There is some really cool stuff planned for Robin,” said GH executive producer Frank Valentini via Soaps.com. “It’s a race against time, and a trio is formed in a desperate attempt to help save a life that hangs in the balance, but that’s all you’re gonna get out of me.”
McCullough herself is eager to return to daytime TV. “I’m back to kick to kick some butt and tell some truths!” she said.
Though McCullough is rightfully excited to jump back into the General Hospital world, it’s not like she’s been sitting around twiddling her thumbs since her last permanent residency in Port Charles last fall.
Here’s a look at what McCullough has been up to since she left GH in September 2014.

It was announced in early 2015 that McCullough was set to direct an episode of PLL, according to Soaps.com. Her episode will air Jan. 26, 2016.
