Izzie Stevens Returns To 'Grey's Anatomy' In Spirit And We Are So NOT Chill
ALL 5 of the original interns are reuniting in the Grey's Anatomy 300th episode special! Well, sort of.
Is Izzie Stevens Returning For The Grey's Anatomy 300th Episode Special?
It definitely looks like Grey's Anatomy showrunners Shonda Rhimes and Krista Vernoff delivered. The Grey's Anatomy 300th episode special will feature all the original interns of Grey's Anatomy. Yes, you read that correctly. George O'Malley (originally played by T.R. Knight) and Cristina Yang (originally played by Sandra Oh) will not be the only ghosts haunting Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) and Alex Karev (Justin Chambers). Izzie Stevens (originally played by Katherine Heigl) will also be featured in the 300th episode special of Grey's. This means that MAGIC, the original Fab Five interns of Grey's Anatomy, will be reunited during the 300th episode special. Well, sort of.
How Will Cristina, George, And Izzie Return To Grey's Anatomy In The 300th Episode Special?
We previously reported that Cristina and George would be returning to Grey's Anatomy. And now, Sarah Drew (April Kepner) has revealed exactly how the original interns will be reunited at Grey Sloan in the 300th episode of Grey's Anatomy.
"Cristina, George, and Izzie we’re thinking about a lot during this episode because our three guest actors on the show actually really look like them and remind the rest of the doctors of those characters,” Drew said. “That causes the original group to really remember those people well and want to fight for these ones to live.”
While this might mean that we won't see new scenes with Sandra Oh, T.R Knight, or Katherine Heigl, the Fab Five will sort of still be reunited during the nostalgic 300th episode through the use of lookalike guest actors. However, you never really know what Shonda and Krista have waiting for us in the 300th episode. We'll likely at least get to see old flashbacks of some of our favorite original intern moments. But, who knows where they might end up, right? So, get ready to cry, Grey's fans! The 300th episode is bound to be a tearjerker!
Are you ready for the 300th episode of Grey's Anatomy? Can you believe we're really here?
The Grey's Anatomy 300th Episode Special airs this Thursday, November 9, at 8|7c!
