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?

HELL NOOOOOOOOOO ! She doesn't get to leave when she wants and gets back when she wants to !! the show has moved on .. everybody's got his own life now and everything looks BETTER WITHOUT HER !!!!!


When she was on the show she was always complaining and whining and now she wants to come back?The show has moved on without her and I'm definitley not missing izzie at all. Especially after what she did to Alex. He def deserves someone better than her.


I hope it's true, I hope that KH does come back to GA if just for one show. This way we will have the closure that SR promised Izzie's fans. KH does have fans from her days on GA. Not everyone hates her as some of you indicate. She and Alex were great together. Those two made the show. Not Izzie and George not Izzie and Denny. Loved George couldn't stand Denny. Izzie and Alex were awesome together. Alex hasn't been the same since she left. The powers on GA will decide if Izzie returns and of course KH has to be agreeable. So sit back all you Izzie fans and see what happens. Whether KH returns or not the show will go on. But I am hoping that for one epi our beloved Izzie will make an appearance.


Great NEWS! The show was MUCH better with Izzie!


Yay!! Of course! Bring her back! For a couple episodes... Then kill her off. For good. Never liked her. She was annoying as hell. The Denny hallucinations - that, my friends, was just too hard to swallow...even for me, who likes pretty much everything Grey's throws at our way.


Absolutely no way. If only for the reason that I loooove Alex. And bringing back Izzie would make for the most predictable storyline EVER. " Yaaay they are back together". I DONT WANT THAT


I don't want one minute of air time to be wasted with that whining, self-absorbed and manipulative so-called actress. She wanted time off to be with her daughter Naleigh, which was a scam, then wanted out of her contract in the middle of a story line with Justin, before the end of the season. She didn't think one thing about her fellow actors, didn't think about the show or the network. Now she's trying to revive her career, which is a slap in the face to the other actors who conducted themselves professionally. Why should their time be given to her. She says she wonders what happened to Izzie. I'll bet she hasn't watched one episode of Grey's since she's been gone. She's trying to revive her career. This is one personnel issue I'm not blaming on Shonda. And as far as her acting abilities, there are plenty of actors on that show that are far better than her over-acting technique.


Only if she (Somehow) brings T.R. Knight back with her. Otherwise...nope, you left and gave up your chance.


i also think we should start a #bringizzieback hashtag on twitter, anyone up for it!? tweet if you like and you can


I dont see why people wouldn't want Izzie back because of the way Katherine left the show. Like i said, if things can be repaired. But i had thought of something else. The residents will become attendings here really soon, if not next season. What if Izzie came back and took an attending role at SGMW. I mean, that seams slightly plausible. I just read an article where Katherine would like to see Izzie become a success because she was always a little behind everyone, and i sort of agree. It would be interesting to see Izzie whole, healed and have chosen a specialty to then return to SGMW for a job opening. How about that? That seems like a plausible story line to me.

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.
