Another notable resident of Pine Valley will be making a surprise return to All My Children to help bid farewell to the sudser. ABC announced today that Carol Burnett will return for a few episodes this September. She’ll reprise her role as Verla Grubbs, who first appeared in the fictitious soap town in 1983 as the long-lost daughter of Langley Wallingford (the late Louis Edmonds).
Burnett returned to AMC in 1995 for the show’s 25th Anniversary. She’ll play Verla opposite Susan Lucci (Erica Kane), and Jill Larson (Opal Cortlandt) for one of the show’s final episodes this fall. “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,” said Executive Producer Julie Hanan Carruthers in a statement.
