The alums keep coming back! Carol Burnett will return to “All My Children” for a few episodes in September, ABC announced Friday.

Burnett will reprise her role as Verla Grubbs, who first made her Pine Valley appearance in 1983 as the long-lost daughter of Langley Wallingford (played by the late Louis Edmonds).


It won’t be the first return visit for flame-haired comic actress. Burnett returned to the soap in 1995 for the show’s 25th anniversary. And she reprised her role for the show’s 35th-anniversary episode in 2005.

Burnett joins a list of stars returning the long-running daytime drama before it signs off Sept. 23. Josh Duhamel, Eva La Rue, Cady McClain and Thorsten Kaye will all be making a return as well.
