He’s back. Michael Strahan has returned to “Good Morning America” after an unexplained three-week hiatus from the show.
The previous NFL player, 51, hasn’t been on the show since Oct. 26, and the explanation for his mysterious absence has not been addressed.
He joined co-hosts Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, Lara Spencer and Ginger Zee, who welcomed him back, on Nov. 15.
Roberts began off by addressing his return, without stating the explanation he was gone. “Can I just say we have now tears of joy because Michael is back here on the desk,” she said.
Strahan replied, “It’s great to back with each of you.”
A source told ET that he was coping with personal issues.
“Michael is a large presence at ‘GMA’ and his absence is certainly felt. He’s universally adored. Everyone wishes him the most effective as he deals with personal family matters. The hope is for him to get back to work soon.”
Strahan also returned to his job co-hosting “Fox NFL Sunday” with Curt Menefee, who used the identical language as source, stating that Strahan missed the Nov. 5 show because he was “coping with a private family matter.”
The Post reached out to “GMA” for, and a spokesperson said that they had no comment beyond what was “previously shared.”
