Robin Williams is one of the funniest men alive. His genius has graced many movies and television shows, and he remains one of the more popular actors in Hollywood. In 2006, Williams checked into a rehab facility after falling back into old habits of drinking. Actors often struggle with alcohol and substance abuse, so this was not a shock. According to a July 1 report from E! Online, Robin Williams has checked back into a rehab facility. Although quick assumption would be that he fell off the wagon, the truth is he needed to recharge to continue his sober path.

It seems that the number of celebrities being treated in a rehab center is growing at an alarming rate. Rumors have been flying about Portia De Rossi just doing a 30-day stay in a facility, Shia LeBouf was just taken to rehab after an outburst in New York, and Indio Downey was busted with cocaine on him. With all of this happening in Hollywood, it is admirable that Robin Williams is taking a little time for himself and making sure he is maintaining the steps and tools he needs to remain sober.

“The Crazy Ones” was Robin Williams' latest television show. While it drew in some loyal viewers, CBS elected not to renew it for a second season. Fans weren't used to seeing Williams on the small screen anymore, so it was a little weird for some. Although the show won't return, the cast is still close and will remain so in the future.

For now Robin Williams is refueling and recharging himself in Minnesota. He has been working for nearly 18 months straight, and the rest is much needed. Williams will be appearing in the third installment of the “Night at the Museum” franchise. Filming has not been announced yet, but fans can count on it being another comedic hit.
