Johnny Depp has reprised his role as Edward Scissorhands for a forthcoming episode of Family Guy.

The actor has returned to the role for the TV comedy 22 years after first starring in the 1990 Tim Burton film, which cemented his status as a Hollywood heartthrob.

Depp recently recorded his brief cameo appearance in the popular show and executive producer Mark Hentemann said Depp snapped straight back into character despite the gap of more than two decades.

"When he was in the booth, he said that he felt like he hadn't done that voice since he did it in front of the camera. He was able to snap right back into Edward Scissorhands once we pulled up a clip from the movie," he told EW.com.

"He was amazing - and demonstrated extraordinary patience with all the fawning women in our office who swarmed him."

The new series of Family Guy airs in the US in September.
