Big news today from CBS! None other than daytime fan favorite and one of the stars of the hit CBS primetime series Criminal Minds is returning to his old stomping grounds at The Young and the Restless!

That’s right! Daytime Emmy winner Shemar Moore is returning to Genoa City as Malcolm Winters for the first time in nearly a decade with a two day appearance slated to air on the September 10th and 11th episodes of the number one soap opera!

During his two-day return, Moore will reunite with longtime friend and co-star Kristoff St. John, who portrays his on-screen brother, Neil Winters. In the episodes, Malcolm returns to Genoa City after leaving town years before without a proper goodbye. Now, he’s back for an important visit with the Winters family to make amends and catch up on everything he’s missed.

“I am excited about returning to The Young and the Restless as a special guest,” said Moore. “This is where I got my start and I am looking forward to reuniting with my soap opera family.”

So what do you think of the news of a Shemar return to GC?   Let us know!

    No! The newbies are awful; Malcolm is a-w-e-s-o-m-e! I only hate to see him come back under JFP regime. I tell you, the woman is never leaving! Still glad, SM is coming back, even for just a couple of shows!

    This speaks volumes as to what a good kid Shemar Moore is.

    Sadly, the writers will completely screw it up just like they did when he returned in early 2005.

    The Malcolm character has been destroyed for almost a decade now.

    How right you are. She mar Moore is enigmatic in whatever role. Unfortunately, Y&R has the uncanny knack of pulverizing truly skilled actors who make an indelible impression.

    Maybe he comes to town and knows a secret about Hilary who is pregnant with either Neils or Devons child…that she was married before to a much older man and took him for every cent…Malcolm himself!!! Ok, not true…lol

    Please not another who’s the daddy drama! We already have this with Victoria & company! Just thought of something; Neil is constantly betrayed by the men in his family. Malcolm slept with Drucilla, when she thought he was Neil, while high on cold medicine and Devon slept with Tyra, another woman Neil was seeing and now he is lusting after Hilary. Give this poor guy a break! It will be good to see Shemar on Y&R again.

    JFP must be desperate for viewers! However I can not wait for Shemar to return, even if for only two episodes.

    I agree, seems like a ratings ploy but I do look forward to seeing him.

    Anything ANY soap does is for ratings. What the heck?

    Well this is one cross promotion I don’t mind—at least he was connected to the show– and it will be nice to see original Malcolm again, even for two days. Finally something connected to the Winters family to look forward to.

    Mary my sister still watches every day and she tells me that they r hinting at a Mariah/Nick hook up? Please tell me that she is wrong I will never return to watching this show on a full time basis again if they do that. The fact JM would not scream to the producers that actress grew up on that show as his child Disgusting!!! There has to be a line you do not cross please tell me she is off base.

    Mary SF replied

    Yes it is true– sort of– we definitely see Mariah developing a thing for Nick, it could just be a crush or she might be getting the hots for him. Right now Nick is oblivious and whether or not the writers would write him returning her feelings is a long ways off I think.

    One would hope the writers would not go there by having Nick interested in someone who looks like his daughter– although Cassie was his adopted daughter not biological, the eck factor and the borderline incest should be enough for them not to have Nick go there or ask JM to go there as an actor with an actress he knew as a child. So fingers crossed this is a one way infatuation that will fade and that Mariah will eventually end up with Kevin

    jaybird369 replied

    W-H-A-T?!?!? Mary…say it ain’t so!!!!! It’s one thing for that Mariah chick to look up to that dirtbag Ian as a father figure (or whatever). But…a possible Nick/Mariah pairing?!?!? H-E-L-L N-O!!!!! That is all kinds of C-R-E-E-P-Y!!!!! What is Y&R thinking here?!?!? B-L-E-C-H!!!!! As for Mariah ‘ending up’ with Kevin (or whatever)…I d-o-n-’t t-h-i-n-k s-o. No. Kevin has gotten WAY TOO DORKY AND WAY TOO STUPID ever since Chloe left. If Y&R wants to put Mariah with someone…why not…say…Carmine??? I mean…Mariah is something of the town pariah and Carmine burned A LOT of bridges (or whatever) when he WENT ALL PSYCHO and kidnapped Lauren and held her hostage. Bottom Line Here: I think that Y&R should bring Carmine back, put him with Mariah and call it a (storyline) day. Period.

    Oh great, someone else connected to the Winters family who SUCKS! Thank god its only two days!

    Wow!! Good of him to pay homage to his beginnings. Wasn’t watching during his run but interested in seeing him in this role and the family dynamics.

    Really don’t need any connection to the HilAnn character; enough of the faux connections and historical rewrites.

    Victoria Rowell’s ceaseless rants all over social media will sadly make sure we never see the day of Drucilla’s return which bad writing or not I would have returned to this show. After the debacle of that Cosby kid or whoever it was..was it the Family Matters kid…as Malcom..a two day ratings boost stunt will NOT peak my interest to return to this hot mess.

    I won 10$ ..!!!
    I Bet my friend that Y&R/JFP would copy GH and start to bering old vets back..
    she fears GH on her heels and she has always been a copycat to get ratings when she can’t come up with something of her own she copies what works ahha..

    It will be fun to see him on Y&R, again ..

    Actually YR has brought back vets for years.

    MAB did it ALL the time. Josh G continued it, and it’s never stopped since Ashley and Traci make appearance quite often.

    GH won’t be catching YR in total viewers any time soon. Especially with Ron over at GH.

    PatF is right. To accuse Y&R of copying GH on this point is way off base. Nina, Brock, Christine, Ashley and Traci (as PatF said), even John (as a ghost) … Y&R has always been good about bringing vets back for short appearances or story arcs.

    Mary SF replied

    ITA– all soaps bring back former characters at some point–either to promote the show, to boost ratings, or if story dictates it– there is nothing new here and no one is copying any one since they all do it. A few years ago Days when it was in slump had a bunch of vets return; by bringing characters such Carrie, Austin and Billie and more recently they had Shane and Kim on for a bit— they too were trying to lure in more viewers with vets– which is the point– they want people watching nothing sinister or desperate about it, just soaps being soaps.

    I love him! He’s great on Criminal Minds! I only watched a few episodes of Y&R when it first started, so never saw him on the soap, but I knew he had come from a soap.

    Then there’s that other gal on CSI? who was from All My Children. It’s great that soap stars can move on up, but I always look at them and think “hey, he’s from ….” Like Tommy Lee Jones for example, no matter how many movies I see him in, I always think “I remember when he was on One Life to Live as a doctor who hung out with Dorian Lord!”

    Great news. Y&R needs all the love it can get right now. The Winters clan especially. Used to love them, now they’re FF material to me. I’ll watch for this vet’s return.

    Shemar Moore and Kristoff St.John are gold together. The show failed miserably when they recast Malcolm with Darius McCrary, he did not fit the role at all, nor did he look like Neil’s YOUNGER brother. I would love to see SM play Malcolm every now and then (Like how Beth Maitland pops up every few months or so), after all he does work on another CBS show.

    And he would do it to contrary to what everyone thinks the man does know Y&R gave him his start. I have never seen him nothing but gracious and kind to the daytime community.
