Katherine Heigl Wants Back on Grey's Anatomy?!

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?

Yes please!!!! We need her,then I will watch these show agen!


I think KH and her agent have set up this situation where the return of Iz to GA is being talked about. If KH is willing to talk about returning to GA in interviews, it means she's not banned it as a forbidden subject.
I'm not sure whether KH is wanting to return for more than one episode? I just can't see how iz would get a job at SGH.
The message from KH seems to be; if Izzie doen't return, it's not my fault, the writers didn't want me.


I absolutely want her back.. she was totally awesome in the show before ,,
it would be so exciting ..


It's good 4 the show, but heigl is a total diva! If she comes back, she's got to eat humble pie 4 the totally abrupt way she left. I feel like telling her to *$@% off! She doesn't deserve to come back!


No I do not want her back. She was a bitch when she left thought she was too big for the show cause she did like 2 movies and dumped the show that made her something. Nope you are not welcome back go away and deal with the fact you wanted off the show in the first place. She was never happy she was always complaining about her storyline.


No. I do not want Izzaie back on the show. I want Lucy Fields back on the show!


Yes! I was hoping for that news.That is so exciting!


Definetly get her back, who cares what went on between ABC and her, after all we'll only know what they want us to know. I like KH and really loved Izzie when she was on so it would be really great to see her again with the group. Why should we jump so fast to judge her and blame her etc, we don't even know her and all the details and for all that i care everyone would have probably done the same in her shoes, go for more. Yes please bring her back!


I couldn't care less about why KH wants back or any of the silliness behind the scenes. Shonda will decide if she can use the return of Izzie. I hope that Shonda does want Izzie back as Alex has never had the chemistry with anyone that he had with Iz and it would be fun to bring her back and see what is what.


Now she wants back, cause she knows that'll be her "come back". Her movies suck and dont even make box office,and her dumb show will blow that's why she want back cause Grey's is all she had. It was so annoying when she was on the show her demands and fits, lucky her they put up with her so much...I've personally loved her character but her in real life was a pain in the ass. I didn't want her to leave and SR managed the people/fans to move on and love other characters (with exception of Avery ugh I hate him).
