Many fans who were hoping for more “face” time for Tristan Rogers, when he recently returned to General Hospital as Robert Scorpio, in the face of his daughter Robin’s “death”, will see him again soon, but back in Genoa City!

CBS Soaps In Depth is confirming via Rogers, that the popular actor is heading back to The Young and the Restless, and that he will be back taping some scenes as Colin ( Cane’ dad and Genevieve’s long time flame) in early April that will air later this spring.

Tristan informed SID,  “This is a two part thing.  I go back briefly to set the scene and then you don’t see me again for quite a while.”

So what do you think will bring Colin back into the mix, briefly?  Would you like to see Tristan get major story in Genoa City, or head back to Port Chuck?  Let us know!

    I’m glad he’s heading back to a show (Y&R) that respects him. I just wish GH would do the same. Robert Scorpio is my all-time favorite character and I want to see a decent ending for the character. I want him to find Robin, find out that Ethan is his son and have more than a few scenes with Holly, Anna and Luke that are more in character. I hope Valentini and Carvilati bring RXS back and do him justice.

    Well, naturally want to see more Robert ,the way they left thing with Robert was just plain wrong, so I want him back, but I am a Tristan Rogers and will followed him anywhere. I love Colin/Jill so I hope whatever he’s doing in GC will involve her.

    I’m glad he is returning to Y & R but I’m very disappointed in GH for not keeping him on GH longer. I’m also disappointed they way his storyline was written for him. Been a loyal fan of GH for over 30 years, I was wanted more of Robert & Anna.

    If he’s only returning to be “Cane’ dad and Genevieve’s long time flame” I don’t care. He was great with Cane but the real magic was with Jess Walton/ Jill.

    I haven’t watched Y&R for over 30 years to see Laura and Scorpio re-unite as different characters either. What I have been waiting for is for Jill – an 39 year character of the show-to find her man. So if Y&R plans to bring him back as some one dimensional evil doer, so Cane can rescue Laura , I won’t watch.

    The writers rewriting of an the head of an Australian organized crime group to an Afghanistan drug lord in his last week on the show was a JOKE. What’s next clones?

    Anybody that remembers the real Robert Scorpio would have to say that he belongs in Port Charles! He was the heartbeat of that show for almost a decade! Why do I feel like tptb forget this? I wish someone would give us an explanation as to WHY they haven’t signed him to a long term contract. It just doesn’t make sense. Does anyone out there know why? Unless they plan on surprising us?? They seem to have embraced Finola which is great…but why not Tristan? The fans want him! I only came back because of the Scorpios returning! In the meantime, watch youtube for Anna and Robert clips if you want to watch great stories! So much fun!

    Robert Scorpio was definitely the heartbeat that kept GH pumpimg all through the 80s and early 90s but the writers/producers doesn’t seems to understand that..They’re showcasing everybody but the one and only Robert Xavier Scorpio..Why won’t they put it to a test..Bring Robert back, write him in character and let him do his thing.

    Even though there are tons of storylines at Y&R, I’m happy to see him return. I thought it a mistake to let him go in the first place. I like him and Jill together and they have a good story going.

    It makes absolutely no sense what so ever, for Robert to have left under the circumstances he did. Robert Scorpio is a living Legend on GH and I am furious about the way his character was written, and then written off! Bringing back Finola is such a blessing, but Tristan needs to be there as well. He belongs on GH period!

    Amen! RXS is my all-time favorite. I tuned back into GH just to see his return and was disappointed that I quickly tuned back out as soon as he walked out the door. TR is tremendous but the writer’s at GH continue to disrespect the character of Robert so for that reason I am happy to watch Colin again on Y&R. Someone over at GH needs to realize that Robert never was a deadbeat dad, that was all Guza’s doing, and bring back the REAL Robert Scorpio before I tune in again!

    I love Colin with Jill. Y&R ‘s writing is better than GH’s, and I think he’ll stand more of a chance at Y&R than he does at GH. Besides, for TR’s sake, he better stay on Y&R…hopefully it will be the last to go (over never go)…anyway, excited for more Colin. I just hope he’s not some ridiculous one dimensional villain just to move the plot along. I like the witty, sexy, flirtacious Colin that was with Jill. I loved those comedic scenes with Colin and Katherine and the Governor at Chancellor Estates. Tristan Rogers had a lot of gold stuff on Y&R. Too bad the rest of the show sucked at the time so it made it kind of hard to realize it. But the show seems to be stabilizing now as far as writing, so I’m really excited!!!

    I love the multi dimensional character of Colin that Tristan has created…love him even more with Emmy winning actress Jess Walton. The two are a power house of talent and have a lot of story yet to tell. Not sure about ABC current use of him very dissapointed in his limited appearance and not being there for his daughters funeral. I like to think they have more of a story for him the way they set the story up….but have been dissapointed in the past with ABC..We’ll see. Cant wait to see him back in GC.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! Aaah! Music to my ears.

    Even if Tristan were doing just a CAMEO on Y&R it would be something!

    So that being said, OF COURSE, I would love to see him do double duty on BOTH shows (but that would be a lot of bouncing between his blonde hair for Colin and brown for Robert) now that I am back to supporting GH full time and have been watching Y&R faithfully for many years now.

    That news makes me sad. I was soooo hoping tptb on GH would wake up and listen to the fans clamoring for Tristan to return to Port Charles. I want Robert back with Anna and Luke!!

    very upset that GH did not offer him something so he’d be on in the future. He’s a great asset to GH. They are fools.

    Was so thrilled to hear he was returning to GH and tuned in to see him again play this iconic character alongside Anna Devane another icon. Unfortunately I was utterly shocked in how the character was portrayed , the miniscule amount of screentime and the how ultimately the ridiculous story played out.

    I hope the new regime wises up and realizes his return brought them their only ratings increase since taking over . I want him to return to GH but only if we get the real Robert Scorpio. Anyone who knows GH history, knows that the one who showed up last month was not him.

    I’ll watch him on Y&R but one of my all time favorite characters is Robert Scorpio so naturally I wish they would have kept him longer!!! And that his character would have attended his daughter’s funeral!!! And that he’d be returning to GH!!!! My all time favorite soap!!!!!

    I like the actor, but I feel bad for all these abc actors moving to Y&R because MAB doesn’t know how to write for the core Y&R cast, much less all this extra talent coming onboard.

    I’d love to see Tristan back as a regular on Y&R, he was great as Colin. The show needs a main villain rather than just have characters that just get in trouble.
