CMT Artists Of The Year 2013 - Red CarpetTwo former "General Hospital" stars are set to return to the ABC soap for a big goodbye.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Jonathan Jackson and Nathan Parsons will be back as Lucky and Ethan Spencer, respectively, and will star in "a short arc" that will serve as a farewell to their onscreen dad, Luke. "GH" vet Anthony Geary, who's played Luke Spencer on and off since 1978, is retiring from the show later this season.

No details about the episodes were provided. Geary is one half of famous couple Luke and Laura, whose wedding was a TV sensation back in 1981.

Jackson first appeared on the show back in 1993, reprising the role over the years, until he officially left the series in 2011. He's currently a regular on fellow ABC show "Nashville," a gig he's held since 2012. Parsons left "GH" in 2013, and currently stars on The CW's "The Originals."

No word yet on when Jackson and Parsons's episodes are set to air.
