To help celebrate its 50th anniversary, General Hospital is bringing back an old favorite for November — Robert Scorpio!

Tristan Rogers will reprise his role next month as a former WSB agent. His return is the result of a promise by Executive Producer Frank Valentini to bring back old characters for the show’s special milestone.

Rogers did rejoin the soap oh-so-briefly in February but his stint was short. He will be back on Nov. 15. According to the ABC issue of Soaps in Depth, Robert was last seen pursing his son, Ethan, at the behest of Luke — who wanted to give “his pal a reason to live in the wake of daughter Robin’s death.” So how will he return this time around?

Rogers first created his role for GH in 1981. In 2010, he jumped ship for The Young and the Restless, where he played Colin Atkinson.
