Shemar Moore is returning to where his career all began. The entertainer has been teasing the viewers of “The Young and the Restless” with a guest spot and finally fans will have the chance to see the “Criminal Minds” star returns to the fans that made him famous. According to OK News on Tuesday, the actor is set to make his big return to daytime television on “The Young and the Restless,” the show that launched his career into prime time.

While the entertainer might have caught the attention of the fans with his return to the daytime show, they also are impressed with his ALS Ice Bucket challenge. Making his voice heard about the disease, he took part in the challenge and posted his results of getting drenched in ice water on his official Facebook page. The “Criminal Mind” actor stated that he had donated to the cause and then he challenged a few people to take the same icy dunked as he was about to receive. Moore took the drenching without cursing, but it was apparent that the cold water was shocking.

Shemar Moore has also announced his upcoming gig for “The Young and the Restless” with his fans. The CBS actor’s guest role has people wondering if Malcolm Winters is just sticking around for two episodes or might there be more in the future. He hasn’t been on the show since 2005. He is currently playing the role of Derek Morgan on “Criminal Minds.”

It appears that Shemar Moore ‘s reunion with “The Young and the Restless” cast members has him thinking of his future television. We hope that he does not consider a permanent return too seriously.

Fans love Moore as Derek of “Criminal Minds.” His character flirts and calls Garcia “Baby Girl” and he is the listening ear for each team member. Morgan also has acted as Reid’s mentor in attracting ladies. For CM fans who don’t watch soap operas (or weren’t previously familiar with Shemar Moore’s work) the idea of losing him on the popular CBS evening show to a soap opera might be unpalatable.
