Jackson confirmed the news in a video message to fans:

Jackson originated the role of Lucky in 1993, playing the son of Luke and Laura Spencer (Anthony Geary and Genie Francis) on and off through 2011, at which point he departed ABC’s daytime soap for the ABC-turned-CMT primetime drama Nashville. He then returned to GH for a brief stint in 2015.

During his two-decade run as Lucky, Jackson collected five Emmys for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series (in 1995, 1998, 1999, 2011 and 2012). News of his his return comes one day after TVLine exclusively reported that fellow GH vet Bryan Craig will return to the role of Morgan Corinthos, the late son of Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright), for one episode in early August.

Our sister site Deadline was the first to report the news of Jackson’s return.
