Great news to report!  Daytime Emmy winner, Kristoff St. John (Neil Winters) is headed back to Genoa City and The Young and the Restless!

Following a four-month hiatus from the show, according to EW.com, the popular actor will be returning to tape new episodes beginning the week of March 12th.

St. John had been battling depression, following the death of his son Julian who died via suicide three years ago.

When Neil Winters was last seen, he left the canvas to go take care of his son Moses, after his ex-Sofia had been in a car accident.

In a recent post on Instagram, St. John shared some pics of his new haircut with the words:  “The comeback kid. I’m ready.”

Glad to hear Kristoff will be back on Y&R and delivering those great performances we all know and love? Comment below.

I have missed Neil Winters, and I am glad his character has been course-corrected in recent years. I would like to see Sofia and Moses back on canvas to fill out the Winters family.

I would tune in more if Olivia returned…

I am glad he is doing better and is well enough to go back to work, and he looks great in his instagram photo– but to be honest I haven’t missed the character Neil at all–perhaps now that he is better the writers can give Neil a real story and make Neil interesting relevant again.

hi Mary…
I haven’t missed Neil, either. ..
That character is like wallpaper, just there. I never cared for Neil one way or another.
As you, hoping he might be relevant this time around.

Neil was best with Dru, su and Mary…..you are both right, though, he hascnot been relevant, except for starting the Winters/Hamilton thingy….not that I care.
He has, also, had a hard time of it in his personal life….the death of one’s child can tur one’s world upside-down….one becomes removed from it all…..it takes time to heal—iif ever, completely—
Perhaps, relying upon ‘showing up’ for work was very tenuous for Kristoff.
Let’s hope he is healed, body and mind….and, he does need a story that catches us by surprise.
I know—–have a baby with Hilary!!!! HaHa….that’ll light a fire under Devon’s little-boy-knickers straight into manhood.

Hi Celia, I so agree with you that Neil was best with Dru…I wish him nothing but the best..

As a fan of Y&R since the mid eighties, Neil has always been one of my most favorite, and in my opinion, one of the most underused characters on the show. I always loved his scenes with Lily, even though she can be whiny and annoying at times. Maybe now Victoria can have a new ear to whine to about nobody wanting “to play with her” at work. With that being said, it is nice to see Mr. St. John in good health, and wish him nothing but good luck and happiness as he moves forward. Looking forward to his first air date

Y&R – NEEDS to cut their losses… Devon ???? what for

i’m certain their are a multitude of MEN out their – who want their opportunity.

RECAST

bring the Winters Family up to par. tell Lily to tone it down.. take her down too.

Kristoff deserves fellow actors who will sear drive AND spotlight, some fun.

if we are stuck with Devon and Lily… BRING BACK Drucilla. otherwise , unfortunately… Neil is the only Winter Character who works

Celia

Welcome back, Kristoff. Your fans love you and missed you……I wish you peace of mind…..when the mind is at peace, the body follows….healing…healthy!!

Victoria needs a break next!
The character is on every day . its overkill..
Neil needs to fire Hilary and end the idiocy that is the hilary hour and the devin/ hilary merigo-round!
The winters need some love now after all the abbott reuniting its the winters turn!. Bring back Olivia to be a sounding board for Neip and lily …and to finally have simeone put Hilary in her place!
With Neil back i think the cast needs some more shaking up ..
Phylis s character as played by Gina is expendable..let her go until Michelle Stafford rightfully returns!
Bring Tricia Cast back as a big return and put her in Billys life while he circles Lily and tries to break up her and Cane!. Billy and Nina in the Chancelor estate with visits from jill would be cant miss!

I agree with you about what you said about Nina and Billy. Jill would completely flip out. Andwe would get some wonderful fight scenes between two terrific vets. I say bring it on!!!

Mr St. John, you have been missed. So glad you’re on your game again. Grief and loss are hard to overcome. I’m pulling for you SIR!!! Hope Neil gets a great story. I could be a total smarty pants and wish for something silly but I am glad he’s back to his strong self again so I will just wish him well and wish him a great run on Y&R.

Mail Young will probably bring him back and make him a axe murderer since he has decided to bring the character of JT back and make him a abuser. Sigh!! KSJ very happy to hear you are doing well and back on the set.

I’m glad that Kristoff St. John is well enough to return to work.However i do wonder if Y&R will not make him work that hard at first but give him time to settle back in.

I’m glad that God is blessing you to regain your health. May you continue to progress everyday.

Finally, the conscience, the intellect, the patriarch, of the Winter’s family is coming back. Gee, I have really missed Neil, and I mean this.
Really, I can no longer tolerate Hillary dictating the conflict of the Winter’s family which seems predicated upon her indecision as to how to conceive a child or which shoulder to expose with her choice of attire.

Welcome back Kristoff St. John. Praying for your continued recovery!
