Sandra Oh Says Cristina Yang May Return To Grey's Anatomy
Is Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh) coming back to Grey's Anatomy? Kevin McKidd (Owen Hunt) certainly thinks so!
We have been begging showrunner Shonda Rhimes to bring Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh) back to Grey's Anatomy ever since her departure in Season 10. And with the 300th episode special of Grey's coming up this week, we can't help but feel a little more nostalgic for this Cardio God, especially since her role was so damn iconic. While co-showrunner Krista Vernoff has mentioned that Cristina will not return for the 300th episode, Kevin McKidd (Owen Hunt) revealed that he would love for Cristina to come back to Grey's Anatomy in the future - and it turns out, Sandra's not exactly opposed to the idea either.
While promoting the 300th episode special of Grey's Anatomy, the Grey's cast spilt their thoughts on their favorite couples and thoughts on the show's success.
"Even though I was part of it, Christina and Owen [were my favorite couple on the show],” McKidd told Entertainment Tonight. "They were such a complex couple and really loved each other and were passionate. They really struggled through a lot.”entertain
McKidd then goes on to say that he still speaks to Oh "all the time" and she even asks how Owen is doing. Looks like Oh got a little jealous of Caterina Scorsone's character, Amelia Shepherd, as well.
“When my character got married to Amelia, she got kind of jealous and was like, ‘No, that’s not right! That shouldn’t be the way," McKidd said. "That’s not cool. That shouldn’t be whats going on."
McKidd revealed that he then told Oh that she just has to return to Grey's if she wants things to change.
Oh's answer? "Well maybe, maybe."
Last we heard, Oh wasn't so sure that she wanted to return to Grey's in the future.
"I just don't know," Oh previously said. "It would just have to feel right."
Now, McKidd is saying that she might actually do it. So, yes, we will be listening for that news to finally come true, and it looks like McKidd feels the same.
“I hope she will. I think it would be so much fun,” McKidd said. "It would open up so much again in the story and mix everything up. Owen, wherever he is in his life, would have incredible stories. She’s just such an amazing actor. I still miss her to this day.”
While we're secretly hoping that the Grey's crew is just trying to hide the fact that Cristina Yang is returning for the 300th episode special of Grey's Anatomy, we're pretty sure that we're only going to get a patient who reminds Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) and Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) of Cristina and maybe a few great flashbacks from previous seasons. The 300th episode is meant to be a love letter to fans, after all!
"It’s an interesting episode," McKidd said. "People come into the hospital that kind of trigger memories for a lot of our doctors. It’s really cool the way the stories have been woven together to do that … There’s a lot of surprises and nuggets hidden within the episode.”
Are you ready for the 300th episode of Grey's Anatomy? Do you think Sandra Oh will return as Cristina Yang anytime soon???
The Grey's Anatomy 300th Episode Special airs this Thursday, November 9, at 8|7c!
