Greg Rikaart Making September Return To The Young and the Restless!

Photo: Riker Bros.

After a 14-year-run, Greg Rikaart was written out of The Young and the Restless this summer, and his Daytime Emmy-winning role as Kevin Fisher.

A fan favorite, Rikaart’s exit from the show took not only the actor, but longtime fans of the CBS sudser by surprise.

Now, word from EW.com on Wednesday reveals the talented star will be back in Genoa City for a two-week run beginning with the upcoming September 20th episode.

Just what brings Kevin back onto the canvas? Details are hush-hush, but when Kevin was last seen back in July, he was going on the run and out of town with Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) and her daughter, Bella.

So, glad to hear Y&R is bringing back Rikaart for a limited run? What do you think will be Kevin’s involvement with the current on-air storylines? Comment below.

Thrilled to have Kevin AND Greg back. Hoping he’s involved in the sting to stop the prostitute ring in GC!

It would be nice to see him back permanently. I love his scenes with Gloria as well as Michael. Gloria needs more story than just being Jack’s secretary. I am also getting tired of Nick and his poor little rich boy whining. I don’t know what Chelsea sees in him. I know they claim they were just friends back in the day, but I think Chelsea should dump Nick and hook up with Hillary’s ex. To me he’s more of a man than Nick. But having Kevin back will be a welcome treat. To bad it’s omly going to be… Read more »

soapqueenforever…EXACTLY!!!!! I mean…when it comes to women, Nick is nothing but A LOVESICK FOOL!!!!! To me, the LOVESICK CRAP gets VERY OLD, VERY FAST!!!!! Yep.

Have a good one.

I look forward to seeing Greg again but “limited run” sounds like they’re tossing us, his fans, a half-eaten bone. Why is Kevin Gone? So we can have more Charlie and Mattie drama? More of Tessa’s sister (who can’t act her way out of a paper bag) in peril? More of insipid Scott and slimy Zack? Yeah, we’re glad the wonderful Greg is back. Now get a clue and put him back on contract. Give us a break!

Totally agree with everything you’ve said here. I thought Greg was returning full time so while I’m glad to see him onscreen again I wish it was permanent. Can’t stand most of the newbies and am so tired of the Victoria/Billy show.

Carol, Victoria and Billy are so boring. Victoria seriously needs a life. She comes across as a boring hag, an insipid ex-wife who uses her kids to get to her ex who clearly has no interest in her (sexually)-IMO.

dmr
Guest

Exactly, Soaphound. The show’s focus has become this BORING sex ring “drama,” centered around 3 newcomers that we do not know, do not care to know, and do not want to know-Tessa, the sister, and Zack. No thank you.

For Kevin to return, leave Chloe and Bella; it must be something of great or grave importance. One of his loved ones is sick? He came to fetch Ester?
Nonetheless, whatever the reason, two week is not good enough….should come back for good!!
Well, if Adam returns, then, no need for Chloe to stay in hiding, right?
Oh, wait. Would Chloe, Kevin, the doc with the screw loose, and Victor still be in trouble with the law for faking her death?

Soaphound
Guest
Soaphound

Hey Celia, guilty confession: I was sorry they made Chloe’s doctor so unhinged…I thought the actor was sort of nerdily sexy. But I digress. I want Greg back full time even with Bella. A nice single dad (Chloe could conveniently disappear again) is always a character to root for. Cheers!

Celia
Guest
Celia

LOL, Soaphound…I never really saw the doctor as ‘nerdily sexy’, but I get it. He had sort of an intense presence. And, as far as turning him into a nut-case, in complete defiance of his profession ( the irony stings, my friend, lol), this is a PTB’s last-minute staple; climbing for a plausible excuse to satisfy a failed plot…..thing is; it’s never plausible. It simply made me do a double-take, in confusion. The ever-so-knowing Victor could not see through the insanity? I guess, ‘ole Vic is just as mentally ‘possessed’, thus never saw it coming. Agreed about Chloe….too flighty; too… Read more »

Hi, Robert,
I promise I am not trying to be flippant. I would love to know why you do not want “Kevin” back.
I respect both you and Nikki, whom I love….always enjoy our exchanges. I am being very sincere.
Was there something about the character?
I know I did not like him when he first came to “town”…..but, he turned a new leaf.
I’d like yours and Nikki’s take.

Kevin C

Robert I totally agree with you and Nikki…Celia I have never liked the character of Kevin and I know most people do… I think his (Kevin’s) story has run out after all these years…I love Christian LeBlanc and his character of Michael which I hope he never leaves and I also love Tracy Bregman and her character….

It will be great to have Greg back, even if only for a two-week run ..

Joan

I loved Greg as Kevin since he first appeared to Michael. Viewers have gone through a lot with Kevin and rooted for him. I don’t understand why Y&R keeps getting rid of our favorite characters instead of characters they throw at us that we don’t care about! That’s a sure way to lose viewers!

Why dont they take Hiilery off cant stand that women

Joan
Guest

Judy, I agree, she is useless. They must keep Hillary just to annoy us because everything she does is always annoying. Why don’t the writers give Hillary’s scenes to Kevin, since we all love him?

Celia
Guest
Celia

Oh, Judy, my friend. We need Hilary—-she is the spice that is so desperately needed. Yes, she’s a ‘bad’ girl….disrespectful, naughty, nosy, a trouble maker—all those things and then some.
She is the character you love to hate’….do not like using the word, but, ironically, it’s a necessary evil, as is Hilary; albeit, I’m not so sure she is evil.

Kevin C

Love Hillary for she is the spice of Y&R and Mishael Morgan is an excellent actress and beautiful…

I agree, Kevin and Celia. And the more dull and duller characters that keep showing up (Charlie, Mattie, Scott the Mop, Zach the slime, Crystal Lite-on-talent), the more we need the dynamo of Hilary.

From your words to the powers that be’s heads, Michele. We need him back full time. Ditch Charlie, Mattie, Zack, Tessa’s talentless sister, Jordan, and please get Reed a new hairdresser.

Celia

HaHa, Soaphound. Today, Cane, who should not wear spandex shirts of any kind, reprimanded his daughter not to be taken-in by Reed’s hair and his ‘aura’ ( paraphrasing), as if that “crowning glory” was an inspiration and a gift to girls.
Is this what young girls look for today? nondescript, wild hair? I don’t know…..
Oh, by the by, Lily is supposedly a fashionista…..can’t she help her daughter with her wardrobe? The girl dresses like a kindergartener.

I read something somewhere that the plan is to come back to prove that Chloe didn’t kill Adam with proof that he found Adam. And that there is a possibility he brings him back so that his life with Chloe starts on a clean slate without running.

It would be the best option. I hope he’s not brought back for this silly and dull prostitution ring that doesn’t ring true or invests me in its story.

Soaphound

I totally agree, Paul. And is it just me or are Crystal’s emotions and reactions the exact opposite of what they should be? I don’t know what’s going on there and am more than bored with it.

Since he’s not coming back long term, it might have better for him not to return. I thought he was back long term.

Why do we have Kevin on a limited run but have to suffer through Scott, Maddie, Charlie, Devon, Jordan and god awful FAKE Phyllis!

Kevin brings humor and history. He brings Paul into the mix. The worst mistake they ever made was letting detective Harding go. He and Kevin were gold! Plus, Kevin and Mariah belong together. Send Chloe down the river and let Kevin and Mariah raise his daughter.

Timmm, I agree with you (although, I like Phyllis). I am sick and tired of the teen scene. What do I care if Reed and Maddie are not allowed to see each other? I’m 37 years old. I want to see daytime/lunchtime tv-heat and sizzle, not Mr. Rogers. Devon, ugh, what a useless, stupid character. It’s a good thing he got an inheritance, because the character is a useless idiot.

Devon should have NEVER gotten that money!

1. Charlie
2. Maddie
3. that SKANKY AND TRASHY Alice
4. that SLIME-FEST Zack
5. Tessa’s BLUBBERING AND WHINY sister Crystal

Have a good one.

Once again, you speak gold, Timm. I thought Scott was going to be a short term character. Imagine my –GULP– surprise. I’m amazed Sharon doesn’t fall asleep during their “love” scenes. Heck, peanut butter has more charisma.

Tim…ya’ got that right!!!!! I still say that Katherine should have divided her money (and everything else) up 6 WAYS among the following people: Murphy, Brock, Mackenzie, Esther, Nina and Jill. Towards the end, Katherine made A REALLY AND TRULY STUPID DECISION by leaving EVERYTHING to Devon!!!!! And Katherine was usually A LOT SMARTER than that!!!!! LOTS!!!!!

Have a good one, Tim.

I have very much enjoyed my Y&R since new (now gone) writers took over a year ago. (Stronger family ties. Dina. Sharon 2.0!) My biggest beef was tying up the Chloe story line because it took Kevin Fisher and Greg Rikaart away from Genoa City. The previous regime really goofed on the Chloe/Adam plot which to me meant so little. I liked the idea of black sheep Adam but ever since he was gaslighting Ashley leading to that Gothic baby-switch thing involving Sharon and Faith, I loathed the character. I was all for redemption after return in guise of Gabriel.… Read more »

To use a famous quote, it ain’t gonna happen. Got that? Now you have a nice day. Seariously, I don’t think they will be divulging any secrets, except for Graham, and his true agenda. I am thinking the sex ring will drag out longer, only to have Sharon getting busted and maybe captured. Don’t think she’d be much use to them though, she’s getting a little long in the tooth, for anyone to pay for her services. It’s no secret what will happen with Billy and Phyllis ,when they find out, that they’ve been sabatauging each other. Oh, what a… Read more »

So today Victor picks up the phone and calls someone and says(I told you I would call if I needed a favor well I do so you have to come back) Everyone is going to think he’s talking to Adam but in fact its really Kevin who will return for a short time but how many are going to be disappointed its not Adam?

Nothing against bringing back Kevin but for September sweep how about making the fans happy and bring back Adam Newman?

I AGREE, KEVIN SHOULD BE BROUGHT BACK AND SEND THE WRITERS PACKING. THEY HAVE ” NO” IMMAGINATION. I’M NOT A WRITER, BUT
I CAN COME UP WITH FAR BETTER STORY LINES,

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Now SiriusXM has made my dream a reality with a podcast featuring friends, both old and new, discussing a variety of topics we all face in life, while getting deep with some experts’ views and advice along the way. Not another podcast, this is off camera!”

New episodes of Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa will be available every week on Stitcher, the SXM App, and all major podcast listening platforms beginning in March.

Kelly will be quite busy co-hosting the syndicated talk show Live with Kelly and Ryan, in addition to Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa.
