Watch out, Port Charles: James Franco is back.

After a two-month stint last fall on General Hospital, the actor returns next month, continuing his “obsessive vendetta,” leaving a “tangled web of clues” for his pursuers and taking townspeople on an alliterative “wild ride of mystery, music, murder and mayhem.”

“The hospital,” producers say in a statement, “will be in peril.”

Which is just fine for the Pineapple Express star. “Working on General Hospital was a great experience,” he tells PEOPLE. “I love the cast, writers, directors and producers. They have become a new family for me. I can’t wait for the work we will do this summer. – Zach Haberman
