“The Young and The Restless” fans who have been waiting to see Kevin Fisher back on screen will finally get what they have been asking for. Greg Rikaart, who was last seen playing the role of Kevin back in February 2018, will reprise his role on the sudser on June 7.
The soap has kept other details under wraps for now, which means viewers have to wait and see what his return storyline will be.

Young And The Restless News – No Longer A Good Guy?
So when he said goodbye to “Days of Our Lives” last March, many fans wondered if he’d be coming back to “The Young and The Restless.” Although Rikaart is making a comeback on a recurring basis, viewers may not see him as his previous bad-guy-turned-good-guy image. It has been reported that he’s returning as a much darker version of his alter ego.
Viewers of “The Young and The Restless” were shocked when Rikaart announced that he was not renewing his contract, after 14 years of being on the soap. His fans were both stunned and dismayed over his decision.
He tried to appease them by saying, “I am sad to leave a place I hold so dear but also really excited about what the future holds.” He exited the show when his character moved to Oregon with Chloe Mitchell (Elizabeth Hendrickson) and Bella (Cali May Kinder).
