It’s official! TV Guide’s Michael Logan has confirmed that daytime veteran Kin Shriner is returning to General Hospital as Scotty Baldwin on February 19, just days after the return of his on-screen ex-wife Laura Spencer (played of course by Genie Francis). The actor begins filming January 22.

While Shriner doesn’t know what his story would be, he did mention there are a few women in town he has unfinished business with. “There are four or five girls in that town that are ripe for some more Scotty action. Lucy has unfinished business with me, and there’s Crazy Heather, Tracy Quartermaine, Anna Devane. He was involved with all of them. And then Laura, of course. I don’t know what they’ve got planned for me. It’s very hush-hush-sweet-charlotte down there at ABC these days. Back in the old days we didn’t have all this texting and googling and tweeting to spoil storylines but, still, at the Luke and Laura wedding, [exec producer] Gloria Monty kept me locked in a trailer so the secret wouldn’t get out that Scotty was there to catch the bouquet. So, really, nothing’s changed!”

Scotty was last seen in Port Charles in November of 2008, when he left for France to be closer to Laura and his daughter Serena.
