Original Story October 28:
Just after it was announced that Kimberly McCullough is returning to General Hospital as Robin Scorpio-Drake, show producer Frank Valentini announced Tristan Rogers, who currently plays Colin Atkinson on “The Young and the Restless,” is returning briefly as her father Robert Scorpio this December. However, he will still remain in his “Y&R” role.
Looking forward to seeing old faces. Lets have some good times.

And he might not be the last casting announcement, as Valentini teased…
“Scorpio is such a beloved legacy character who evokes a sense of nostalgia and I know the fans have been patiently waiting for Tristan’s return. I share their sentiments and enthusiasm and that of our entire “GH” team in welcoming him home. It’s been a fantastic week of casting announcements for “GH,” but it’s not over yet.”
Watch the video when Rogers left in 2014.
