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?

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

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.

Callie: Did anyone ever think you two were a couple?
Meredith: No, because we screw boys like whores on tequila.
Cristina: Then we either try to marry them or drown ourselves.
Callie: Huh.
