General Hospital Brenda Jax

More exciting news from General Hospital as it continues to celebrate its 50th anniversary on ABC.

EW has learned exclusively that Ingo Rademacher and Vanessa Marcil will reprise their roles as Jax and Brenda. GH is staying mum about their actual return date but word is it’ll occur sometime before April 1.

And here’s some even better news: They are expected to stay for more than a few weeks. The famous love triangle of Jax, Brenda and Sonny (Maurice Benard) will be reunited!

Rademacher and Marcil are among many alums who have returned to help celebrate the soap’s milestone. Other faves who have returned home to Port Charles this season are Genie Francis, Kin Shriner, Rick Springfield, and yes — even Richard Simmons.

Rademacher first joined the soap in 1996 before leaving in 2011. (He took time out in 2000 to appear in the short-lived primetime soap Titans). Marcil created the role of Brenda in 1992. After an eight-year absence from the show that made her a household name, she returned to GH for a year from 2010-11.

Rademacher is getting a lot of love from ABC these days. He was just cast in the 16th edition of Dancing with the Stars.
