As hinted at by soapcentral.com last week, The Young and the Restless has confirmed that it has re-signed actress Lyndsy Fonseca (Colleen Carlton) to the show.

In a move that left many fans scratching their heads, Fonseca, who joined the cast of The Young and the Restless in 2001, was released from the show this past May. The role of Colleen was originally slated to be a short-term role. The actress, however, impressed show execs and the role was expanded. Fans, too, also enjoyed the actress' work. In 2002, Fonseca was nominated for Outstanding Newcomer in Soap Opera Central's Dankies Awards.

"Although I regret not being able to continue exploring Colleen, I have to be very grateful to the folks at Y&R for giving me my first job," Fonseca said in a statement.

Since leaving Y&R, Fonseca, a California native, has kept a low profile. During her run on The Young and the Restless, the young actress made guest appearances on Boston Public, Malcolm in the Middle and NYPD Blue.

"I'm really excited to see all my friends at Y&R again," a happy Fonseca revealed. "I always enjoyed working with Thad [Luckinbill, who plays JT]."

Fonseca's first airdate is December 24th.
