(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Soaps in Depth recently revealed that "General Hospital" is currently actively casting the role of a supposed "supervillian" that will rock the canvas this November. The unnamed character is described as a forty to sixty year old, "ruthless, intense and unmistakable presence," who will be heavily recurring for approximately six months starting in Mid-November. Soap Opera Network has since learned that the storyline kicks off next week with the introduction of a new crime lord who is after Brenda Barrett (Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo).

Sources are confirming that just before Brenda finally comes face-to-face with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) for the first time in seven years on the Friday, September 3 episode of "General Hospital," Brenda receives a warning that she is being actively pursued by a notorious crime lord who is known simply by the name "The Balkan." While we won't be seeing the characters face for sometime, the mystery man will be providing the soap with much needed drama, action and adventure.

Can Sonny, Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) and Jasper 'Jax' Jacks (Ingo Rademacher) protect Brenda from danger, or will the "The Balkan" get her first? Tune in to ABC's "General Hospital" to find out.

"General Hospital" airs Weekdays on ABC. Anytime on ABC.com.
