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.
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?
