Shemar Moore is reprising his role as Malcolm on The Young and the Restless as it marks 50 years on CBS.
To reconnect with his niece Lily (Christel Khalil) and nephews Devon and Nate, his character will visit the town once more (Sean Dominic). He left the show in 2007, but he has since made several appearances. His most recent appearance was in a memorial episode to honor the passing of Shemar Moore’s on-screen brother, Neil, played by veteran cast member Kristoff St. John. In an Instagram post, Moore expressed joy about the development. He published a screenshot of the news with the description, “Aaayyee!!! On Monday, MAY 8th, Ya Boy Malcolm Winters will return to @youngandrestlesscbs.”
Shemar Moore Will Reprise His Role
The announcement comes while S.W.A.T. Season 7 is still in doubt. While CBS has renewed NCIS, according to Deadline, NCIS: Hawai’i and CSI: Vegas – S.W.A.T. are still awaiting their letters. The discussions to extend the series are presently ongoing. But, due to budget limitations, discussions over the viability of a program that occasionally shoots on location are becoming more serious. However, as more series run just on streaming sites, more are being axed due to a fall in linear ratings. One of Shemar Moore’s favorite roles is that of Hodo, who he portrays on the program. He enjoys playing a villain who drives the bad guys away.
In an interview with PopCulture.com from last Autumn, “The little train that might have been SWAT. We are merely a lighthearted, action-packed program that everybody may enjoy. That is not as gloomy as my previous program, Criminal Minds when I ran about flirting with Babygirl and pursuing serial killers. In this family-friendly program, the gang and I get to play super policemen, and I play the role of Hondo, the big badass Hondo, who goes after criminals.”
