BREAKING NEWS: Tristan Rogers Returning to The Young and the Restless as Colin Atkinson!





Port Charles, New York—by way of Cassadine Island—can say goodbye to Robert Scorpio! I am hearing from multiple sources Tristan Rogers is returning to The Young and the Restless as Colin Atkinson.

The veteran actor, who recently reprised his super spy role on General Hospital, is set to head back to Genoa City as part of a big storyline for Jess Walton's popular character Jill Abbott.

Not that I want to see a parade of GH faces into GC, but if it means MORE airtime for Jill, then I'm all for a Colin return. And if it means Geary stays away...then yes, bring him back!

I liked the two of them together, just like I liked Gen and Jack, but the writers messed up both of those couples. I hope they get it right this time.

I do find it interesting that Phelps is resurrecting something from the MAB days.

Yess to more Jess!!! Wink

yes, Yes, YAAASSSSS!!!

Tristan & Jess are PURE GOLD together; their explosive chemistry and acting *TALENT* are always welcome into my TV room.

I wish, I wish Melody Thomas Scott will somehow become involved with these two! Just imagine the epic catfights between Jill & Nikki!!! That what Y&R sorely needs right now with Phyllis gone and Sharon's kray ninja death stare slowly fading away.

So happy about this! I absolutely loved Colin and Jill together. I could never understand why MAB got rid of TR but kept Genie as Genevieve when Colin was the popular character and Jill/Colin were such a popular pairing. I'm also very happy that per Jess Walton it was JFP that wanted her back on Y&R and wanted to give her a big story after MAB had no use for her. Can't wait!

I still laugh every time I think of MAB's "Australian Cattle Rustlers." Hopefully, Colin's returning to stick a fork in LANE by revealing that Ethan (Cane) is the actual Atkinson twin who died, and Caleb's been impersonating his brother and having sauna sex with Lily for the last three years ..lol!

If only this were true. But no, I fear that this is to appease JW who loved this pairing and to solidify Cane's position as Jill's son. Right now, Jill takes alot of flack for her love of her fake son over her biological one. It seems the writers want to tie Cane to her desperately. To make him relevant. And JW is all for it so...But I can see where this is headed...Caneleb Ashbykinson front and center while all people Winters and Winters related play his supporting cast.

This makes no sense to me. Granted, I don't really care one or the other because I am not watching this show anymore, but why? I mean, it's not like these people care about the character of Jill. And why Colin, I mean, it's not like they've mentioned him much during the past year. IMO this is just another way to try to make a dig at GH - "we got him from you like you stole someone from us" jada jada. Also, what an insult to Genie and her fans, so TR can come back but not her, even though there would be so much more for Genevieve to do on this show than Colin? I mean, hello, Jack is without a woman, etc. But no, that is a no-no for JFP. Not that I would ever want that because not only would I have to tune back in to Y&R which I absolutely do NOT want to do, I don't for a minute think they would write for GF the way she is supposed to be written for. That bitch JFP would have her rocking in a chair and drooling again.

Yoryla...I'm not sure that it's always YR making a dig at GH. It's works both ways actually from what I've seen and read.

But you are right. It would make just as much sense since Genie also is being wasted at GH with their bloated cast to also return to complete this family. I thought the Gen/Jack pairing worked well.

And people keep saying "trying to make Cane relevant". He's been on the show for almost 7 years and has had so many stand alone stories, he doesn't need to be "tied" to anyone. He has his own family, and has been accepted by both Kay and Jill for a long time. Get over it.

Phelps is an idiot anyway, and won't do anything logical to help drive the show. It's all an agenda for her, much like when Latham was in charge.

pferrando, Yes that is what I meant actually, that this is another "dig" in a long fight of GH vs. Y&R.

Genie Francis as Genevieve was a complete FLOP on Y&R. The only viewers who enjoyed watching her were fans of the actress, just happy to *see* her again.

It's being said that they (finally) have a big storyline for Jess Walton/Jill. So sorry---Genie Francis is NOT needed. She wasn't needed the first time she came slithering around. She completely threw the Colin/Cane/Jill dynamic out of whack. I was enjoying it-until she showed up. And I find Cane repulsive.

Jill/Jess Walton was Tristan Rogers' leading lady on Y&R--not Genie Francis.

They aren't fighting each other. They are on at different times. Cartini knew TR was leaving to go to YR cause they need him more there than they do at GH. This is to keep soaps on our screens. He'll tape his last scenes in advance at GH then go to YR and collect a check. They share these actors. They make you think its drama behind the scenes for us to act like this on the blogs. GH took Marcy cause her premium was to high for YR to pay her what she was worth. Then they brought on new Abby cause she was cheap. Tristan is not gonna be on contract at YR I'm sure cause it would cost too much. He'll only be there for a minute just to get a quick check for more than what GH was paying. I'm sure Valintini called Phelps and sent him back to YR for the time being. It's just like Sony share Eileen with Day's and YR. She'll be back to Day's next year sometime I'm sure after taping quite a good storyline with YR. It's Hollywood, small town big city.

Yes, stand alone stories that were nothing but garbage start to finish. What else is there for Cane that is standalone? His sister coming back from the dead perhaps? As for having his own family? Agreed. It is a family that the writers have historically not been interested in for the last 5 years. Why do you think they turned the "Hilary out to get Neil" story into a story about Lane when there were plenty of things Hilary could have actually done to Neil? I could see if he was married to and had kids with an Abbot or a Newman...you know, the people that the writers actually care about. But no. He is with Lily. And her being a young woman without a uterus kinda ruins all the drama of anything that happens with her on a soap. As for getting over it...please, I have been holding grudges against soap head writers and execs for almost 25 years now. That is part of the fun of the genre. And I will be eternally burnt that Lily has been paired off with that character.

Nobody wants to see Colin com back to GC. This just makes me hate JFP even more (if thats possible)

Cane will never be interesting no matter what ridiculous story JFP comes up with. I thought Jess wanted less airtime, didnt she move to Oregon?

Well, well, well, the only good thing I heard was Jess has a big story...

Great news but if Katherine's death was wrote correctly Jess would already be having a great big story...

Has anyone else notice 2 MAB's writers are back...I think actually Sony (as in Dena Higley) liked MAB's stories and it just seems to good amount of shifting in canvas and once again no direction. Actually, Colin & Jill (because of the actors) was chemistry laden but again it comes down to the story that will be written for Jill and my trust & faith is null and no team has written Jill correctly since Kay & Jack was fired. This back & forth between GH & YR is just child's play and immature. The show continues to suffer...UGH! Angry

I just can't believe it. I was finally done, DONE, DONE! with Y & R. I was hardly watching for months, so I took it off my DVR and didn't watch, or even think about it, for the last couple of weeks. But if Colin is coming back Jill will finally have a love interest, (and maybe some life) so I can't quit now. I loved Jill & Colin.

I am thrilled that an mature character is coming back. I guess TPTB finally realized you need enough mature characters to play against each other. You cannot just add young newbies and expect the show to thrive. The show needs to get its substance back. This is great news!

Oh Diva...you know what I mean. And actually one of his first stories was when Chloe passed off Delia as his. I found it entertaining, and loved bad Chloe back then. Had NOTHING to do with Jill at all.

You can hold as many grudges as you want. All good Divas do anyway, I hear.

I have one major one going on right now myself, but it's only 13 months old. She's an EP and her name rhymes with "Pill".

These two titans in daytime GH & YR love to steal actors from each show to see who has the biggest notch on their belt. SMH

You must not know how to read. There's at least 7 people responding under this article that are ecstatic about Colin Atkinson returning to Y &R.

I'll miss seeing him on GH but won't be tuning into Y&R for his return as Colin. If this is a better gig for the actor, I wish him all the best. Business is business.
