Debbie Allen to Reprise Grey's Anatomy Role

by at . Comments

Debbie Allen is returning to Grey's Anatomy both in front of and behind the camera. She will reprise her role as Jackson's mom Catherine at least once this season, according to TV Guide.

Details on Catherine's return are scarce, but we will see her in the fourth episode of Grey's Anatomy Season 9. Will Catherine and Richard be reprising their fling? No word on that just yet.

As we first reported, Allen will direct again this fall in the third episode.

Catherine and Richard

Season 9 picks up 2-3 months after the doctors were rescued after the plane crash, while the second episode jumps back in time to when they were rescued, and Allen's episode returns to the present.

Grey's Anatomy returns Thursday, September 27. Are you excited?

I like Jackson mom she's so down and a little funny to.


Very sorry that they aren't killing Arizona off, Callie isn't quite so bad,not good, but not quite so bad, but I really hate Arizona, she's so irritating.


Nooooooooo! Please, get rid of April! She's so annoying, I can barely watch the show anymore. Jackson staying would be OK and I do like the enery between Debbie Allen's character and Richard. I really loved Adele and find her story line heartbreaking!


I wish she'd be added to the main cast. It'd give more a storyline to Richard and has the potential to grow to more for people like Jackson and April. Not to mention, with April repeating her 5th year of residency she might pick a specialty under Catherine.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Just because we can live without something, it doesn't mean we have to.


Derek: I am calling post-it, Zola, Bailey, the tumors on the wall, ferryboat scrub caps. I thought D.C. was everything. I was wrong. You... you're everything. I love you and I'm not going to stop loving you. I can't live without you. I don't want to live without you, and I'm going to do everything in my power to prove it.
Meredith: I can live without you, but I don't want to. I don't ever want to.
