Debbie Allen to Reprise Grey's Anatomy Role

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

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)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
