Ingo Rademacher is checking back into General Hospital — and EW has an exclusive first look!

Rademacher, who was last seen in Port Charles two years ago, will reprise his role as Jasper “Jax” Jacks starting May 7. He’s back to see his daughter Josslyn (Eden McCoy) and ex-wife Carly (Laura Wright). He’ll also make time for his favorite dude, er, we mean personal nemesis, Sonny (Maurice Bernard).

At the end of the Feb. 14 episode of General Hospital, Rademacher revealed that he was returning to the soap during a fun clip that included his 2017 goodbye scene with Wright. “I’m coming back to GH,” he teased. “And Jax’s legacy is going to continue in a big way. See you soon!”

After leaving GH in 2017, Rademacher joined The Bold and the Beautiful to play Thorne Forrester, a gig he held until December of 2019.

The Australian hunk first joined GH in 1996 to play Jax. Besides his work in daytime, he’s also traveled to the big island to play Robert Coughlin — or is it Malcolm Schafer? — in the CBS drama Hawaii Five-0.

General Hospital airs weekdays on ABC.
