Katherine Heigl Returning to Grey's Anatomy ... Briefly

by at . Comments

We've got good Grey's Anatomy casting news and bad Grey's Anatomy casting news.

The good: Katherine Heigl will grace us with our presence on the January 21 episode.

The bad: That filmed before Heigl's maternity leave. So she'll be gone again soon.

That's right, Heigl's previous five-episode hiatus was granted by the network so that she could film her new movie. Her next hiatus comes as she adopted a baby girl from Korea.

For one week at least, it looks like estranged newlyweds Izzie and Alex are finally going to have a heart-to-heart ... or have it out. Perhaps a heated combination of the two.

The episode description says: "Izzie returns, hoping to reconcile with Alex." Don't hold your breath. The episode title:"I Like You So Much Better When You're Naked." Hmm ...

Izzie is Back

Alex and Izzie reunite January 21 ... but for how long?
