Oprah Welcomes Genie Francis, Anthony Geary, Susan Lucci and More to Soap Themed Episode

( — In an update to a report we did earlier this week, Soap Opera Network has learned that Oprah Winfrey and her talk show "The Oprah Winfrey Show" will not only be dedicating an entire episode to the legends of daytime soaps, but she'll be reuniting "General Hospital's" Luke and Laura Spencer (Anthony Geary and Genie Francis) for the first time since Laura's portrayer departed the soap in 2008.

Joining Francis and Geary will be "All My Children's" Susan Lucci (Erica Kane), Darnell Williams (Jesse Hubbard), Debbi Morgan (Angie Hubbard), Michael E. Knight (Tad Martin) and "The Young and the Restless'" Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor). In fact, Lucci opened up the doors to her New York estate and provided the show with a rare glimpse into the personal life of the woman behind Erica Kane.

The soap themed edition of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" airs Wednesday, February 9. Check your local listings for time and station.
