Grey’s Anatomy fans have seen a lot of returning faces this season. Patrick Dempsey and T.R. Knight have both returned for appearances. Their characters have visited Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) on a beach in her mind while she is in a coma due to having COVID-19.
Now, one of the medical drama’s living former characters is returning. Sarah Drew will appear on an episode later this season as Dr. April Kepner. Drew departed the ABC series after nine seasons at the end of season 14. The actress left Grey’s Anatomy when her character decided to focus on married life with her husband.
It was not revealed when she would appear, but others may return as well. Per Deadline, showrunner Krista Vernoff teased recently that “chances are good you’ll see other people on the beach.”
It is not clear if the series will return for an 18th season next fall. ABC is in contract talks with the cast and crew at this time.
What do you think? Are you excited to see Drew back on Grey’s Anatomy on ABC?
