Hollywood star James Franco is returning to the small screen - he's signed on to reprise his role on soap opera General Hospital next year.

The Spider-Man star made a huge departure from his usual movie projects when he accepted a role on the daytime show in 2009 as a serial killer artist named Franco.

He returned to the long-running soap earlier this year to revive his character for more episodes.

And now he's signed on to appear in two more segments of the soap opera, which will air on February 25 and 28.

General Hospital's executive producer Jill Farren Phelps tells TV Guide the two episode stint will serve as a teaser for a longer story arc featuring Franco, which they plan to air later in 2011.
