Katherine Heigl Wants Back on Grey's Anatomy?!

by at . Comments

According to Katherine Heigl herself, she is not only open to a return to Grey's Anatomy ... she has even come out and ASKED to return! She said the following while promoting her new film One For the Money:

"I've told them I want to," she admits. "I don't know... Being a showrunner and being a writer of a TV series like that is so complicated that I mean she's got how many characters are there now?"

"There's a lot and so she's currently balancing about 40 different storylines, so I don't know if it fits in to their sort of vision for this season or next or however many seasons it goes."

Katherine last appeared on Grey's Anatomy in the middle of the sixth season, in January 2010, after which she was written off with little explanation in an awkward, open-ended departure for her character.

She left the series on a less-than-stellar note after a number of public and private disputes with ABC. Ostensibly, the final straw was her desire to spend more time at home with adopted daughter Naleigh.

If she was bitter about her departure or toward the show in general, it looks like that's blown over. She reiterated that if ABC or Grey's producers were to call up and ask her to return, she'd do it.

"Yeah totally. I really, really, really want to see where [Izzie] is. I just want to know what happened to her and where she went and what she's doing now," the 33-year-old actress said.

"My idea is that she actually like figures it out, and finds some success at a different hospital. She was always floundering, always one step behind the eight ball. I want to see that girl take some power back."

Could Alex's heart and brain withstand that turn of events? Will it ever actually happen?

KH was awesome it's true but she's left ages ago & in a nasty fashion as well, so I'm not sure if she'd fit in anymore. Alex can be paired up with Kepner, why not?.. it's about time he's found happiness with someone else... just my two pence. However, I do miss the original 5, no question... & maybe KH is a bitch in RL but come on guys, she was brilliant actress on GA, no question, it's just towards the end prior her leaving the show her character became somewhat irritating... for obvious reasons, since she wanted out of it asap.

It's funny how most of you just want to see KH fail...she doesn't deserve it, she's a bitch etc.
However, she's a great actress and after she left SG the whole atmosphere kind of changed. I hope they will bring her back. Yes, she made a mistake, but like I said, she's a great actress, she just doesn't know how to pick a good movie (they all were horrible!!!!)

Ms Shonda Rhimes, please say yes to Izzie and just put Iz back to the drama, no matter with Alex and anyone else....i just wanna see them 4(sadly without O'Mally) talking and saving people tgt!!!

NO NO NO NO NO. She's horrible, and a horrible actress. why would they bring yet another character onto greys. Please don't bring her back. I already don't want to watch they show if Derek and Meredith are gone next year, and if Izzie is back i definitely won't be watching.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

Meredith
