Grey's Anatomy Set Shots: Burke is Back!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Isaiah Washington is officially back on Grey's Anatomy.

A couple weeks after Shonda Rhimes announced that Washington would reprise the role of Preston Burke on an upcoming episode of the ABC drama, Ellen Pompeo has posted a Twit pic of her and her ex-colleague on set.

And she seems rather excited about it.

"BURKE IS BACK #itsallgoodinthehood#burkeisback," the actress captioned the following photo, which is alongside a selfie Washington took of himself in scrubs.

No word yet on the date of Washington's Grey's Anatomy Season 10 episode, or what brings him back into the fold.

But Rhimes has made it clear the doctor's return will have something to do with Sandra Oh leaving the series as Cristina Yang.

! that's a surprise ! I'm gonna 'leave' the show along with Cristina/Sandra Oh.. sigh. I especially enjoyed the first, intense 1-4 seasons- wow. fun! but it became (inevitably?) much watered down.. soapy! (enough of the bath analogy, eh?!) and the 'cuteness' factor, predictable comedic cadences of every character, not to mention the relentless musical background 'commentary' during EVERY, single dialogue.. annoyed me no end.. I still watched, from time to time, because I'd grown fond of the characters/stories. but Sandra Oh, a terrific actress, arguably the strongest of the cast- and Cristina and Meredith's wonderfully rich friendship- were the main things I was clinging to. once her presence is gone, I'll be able to drop it. thank you, Sandra Oh ! I wish her many more "Sideways" calibre roles !
