One of the biggest fans of "All My Children," Emmy Award-winning star Carol Burnett, will return to the ABC soap opera one last time to reprise her role as Verla Grubbs.
Burnett first appeared on the show in 1983, introducing Grubbs as Langley Wallingford’s long-lost daughter. Burnett returned in 1995 for the 25th anniversary episode, as well as the 25th anniversary prime-time special for the soap opera. She turned up again 10 years later to mark the show’s 35th anniversary with another special appearance.
Speaking of the comedienne’s final visit to "AMC," Julie Hanan Carruthers, executive producer, said in a statement, "It is our honor and pleasure to welcome back Carol Burnett to Pine Valley. Verla Grubbs is a beloved member of the ‘All My Children’ family and we look forward to reprising her character."
Burnett is slated to appear in a few episodes in September, near the end of the run for the show. ABC announced in April that it was canceling the long-running soap.
