Finally, some good news for soap fans!

As viewers continue to come to grips with the unexpected cancellation of All My Children, the long-running ABC soap has announced that a familiar face will return for its final season.

Josh Duhamel, who got his big break in 1999 appearing as con artist Leo du Pres on AMC, is set to reprise his role in an upcoming episode.

"Everyone at All My Children is thrilled and excited to welcome Josh back to Pine Valley," AMC's executive producer Julie Carruthers told Us Weekly in a statement late Monday. "The appearance of Leo is sure to be one of the highlights of the season."

A Pine Valley favorite, Duhamel's du Pres -- part of a soap super-couple with Rebecca Budig's Greenlee -- allegedly died in 2003. When he went off a waterfall trying to save Budig's character, his body was never recovered, leaving fans to assume he was gone for good.

Duhamel's air date has yet to be announced.
