"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," executive producer Frank Valentini said in a statement.
"I am delighted to be visiting my GH family once again and look forward to what Robert Scorpio has in store," added Rogers.
Emmy award-winning actress Kimberly McCullough, who created the role of Robert's daughter Robin Scorpio, will also return to GH in November. The show also announced recently that legendary actresses Finola Hughes and Genie Francis have signed on for more GH.
Robert Scorpio was last seen in Port Charles back in January 2014, when Rogers signed a contract to return to The Young and the Restless as Colin Atkinson.
Rogers also plays Lex Martin in the Emmy-winning web series The Bay.
"Tristan is only visiting Port Charles for a very short time," clarifies a rep for Rogers. "Tristan will continue with Y&R as Colin. Tristan and I do not want the fans to be misguided in any way."
