Steve Burton attends The 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on June 22, 2014 in Beverly Hills, California.

Steve Burton will appear on the Sept. 19 episode of General Hospital.‏

"It doesn't take a lot of work to make @1SteveBurton look like a badass. #BehindtheScenes #GH #SteveReturnsSept19th," the show tweeted Friday, along with a photo of Burton wearing a black leather jacket and sitting on a motorcycle.

TVLine noted that a new ABC promo for Burton's return to the daytime drama seems to suggest the actor will once again play Jason Morgan, a character who is now portrayed by Billy Miller.

The 15-second clip features Burton in dark clothes and riding a motorcycle with the song "Hold On, I'm Coming" playing in the background.

How is General Hospital’s Ava surviving those severe burns? With lots of vodka, a 'Phantom of the Opera' mask and a very lusty imagination.

Burton played Jason on GH from 1991 to 2012. After he left, he played Dylan McAvoy on The Young and the Restless 2013-17. Miller has been playing Jason on GH since 2014.
