A legend of the soap opera world, who created some of the most enduring series in the genre, will appear on one of her shows just before it ends its long run on ABC, TV Guide reports.

Agnes Nixon, who created ABC’s "One Life to Live" in 1968, will appear on the show in January, the story reports. The show is being taken off the network’s daytime schedule, but will be relaunched as part of the Online Network.

Nixon, who also created “All My Children,” will reprise the role of Agnes Dixon, the creator of the soap within the soap "Fraternity Row." Nixon, 83, will film her part Nov. 17, with her episodes scheduled to air the week of Jan. 9, 2012, right before the end of ABC’s run of "OLTL."

Nixon last appeared on "OLTL" in 2008, when the character of Viki (Erika Slezak) visited heaven during the show’s 40th anniversary and encountered Nixon there.

She is a perennial nominee for the Daytime Emmys, with five trophies as a writer for "All My Children."
