Neil Is Com­ing Home!

CBS Soaps In Depth - - Ins & Outs -

Genoa City has been miss­ing one of its core char­ac­ters since last fall, when THE YOUNG & THE REST­LESS’ Kristoff St. John (Neil) took a leave of ab­sence from the soap. Now, fans can breathe a sigh of re­lief — he will be back on the can­vas later this month!

The In Depth Story: “The come­back kid,” In­sta­grammed the pop­u­lar ac­tor, post­ing a se­ries of new self­ies. “I’m ready!” Ever since the tragic sui­cide of his son, Ju­lian, back in De­cem­ber 2014, St. John has un­der­stand­ably been deal­ing with de­pres­sion. As re­ported by En­ter­tain­ment Weekly, dur­ing his four­month ab­sence from

the show, he sought treat­ment for his men­tal health, while his al­ter ego was off screen in New York, car­ing for young son Moses as exwife Sofia re­cov­ered from in­juries she’d sus­tained in a car ac­ci­dent.

Neil couldn’t have cho­sen a bet­ter time to re­turn to Genoa City, either, con­sid­er­ing the fire­works that have been ex­plod­ing be­tween his fam­ily mem­bers ever since Devon agreed to co-par­ent with ex- wife Hi­lar y. And St. John’s co-stars rolled out the welcome mat upon the ac­tor’s re­turn. “Kristoff, my friend, is back on the show!” tweeted Eric Brae­den ( Vic­tor). “It made us all very happy.”

Post­ing a selfie with Brae­den and St. John, pal Daniel God­dard ( Cane) added: “We are such a close-knit group and al­ways have each other’s backs… Ev­ery­one has missed you, Kristoff, and we can’t be­gin to tell you how happy we are to have you back!”

St. John, who was last seen on Y&R in late Novem­ber, has been open on so­cial me­dia about his bat­tle with de­pres­sion.
