Katherine Heigl to return to 'Grey's Anatomy'

Sources confirm to EW that Grey's Anatomy star Katherine Heigl's option has been picked up for another season of the ABC series. At the end of the last season of the medical drama, the fate of Heigl's character, Izzie, was left uncertain, as she underwent brain surgery following a diagnosis of stage 4 brain and liver cancer. Heigl had been rumored to be looking to exit the show in order to focus on her film career but in public statements maintained her desire to continue in the role.

    Will…I guess it’s good news. But I don’t know how many were alienated by Knight’s departure.

    I was hoping we’d seen the last of Izzie. Hopefully next season her memory will be lost so she can take on a new personality. Enough of Poor Suffering Izzie.

  • Daniel

    Love Katherine! Woohoo.

  • Dennis

    Thank god.

  • Nathan

    I get that people want to know this – but some people don’t. Do you really have to make it the headline of the story? Can’t you say something like “Katherine Heigl’s fate decided” or whatever?

  • Jen

    oh thank goodness.
    still bummed about t.r.

    The shows more of a soap opera off screen than it is on screen. Im actually surpised as I thought she would leave.

  • Javi

    I’m quite sure that I’ve already read this …

  • Ray

    she has/had melanoma, same as me

  • RJ

    I agree with Nathan, basically EW has ruined both cliffhangers in one day. Some people don’t want to know, more ambiguous headlines in the future please??

  • Non

    In a few months she’ll stage another huge hystrionic outburst, wait for all of her fans to beg her not to leave, and then capitulate at the last minute. Again.

  • Kendra

    She should die with George…oh well, I don’t think she’ll live much longer anyway. They might resuscitate her this time, but what about next time after she is pissed they went against her DNR and she couldn’t die with George her soulmate and see Denny in heaven?
