It also saw the departure of some of the most loved characters, like Christina Yang (Sandra Oh) and Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh), among others, but did you know these stars can return to Grey’s Anatomy Season 19?

Thankfully, some of the series regulars will return, led by Pompeo, who has already expressed her interest in leaving the show.

She left the show after six seasons, though she made a cameo in Season 16 after fixing her relationship with Dr. Karev (Justin Chambers). She’s now happy in her life on a farm with her twins.

Though there are no words on when she will return, Heigl has been open to doing the series again.

Alex Karev (Justin Chambers)

Though many love to hate Dr. Karev, it can’t be denied that he’s one of the fan favorites. He was last seen in Season 16 after Chambers decided to pursue other acting opportunities.


Though he can show up anytime in the series, it may not happen soon.

Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh)

Oh left the series in Season 10 and started to further her career in film and TV. She did Killing Eve and The Chair, so she may not return to the series soon.

However, it can’t be denied that Dr. Yang has remained a huge part of the Grey’s universe. Also, Dr. Grey remains “her person,” so it may be no surprise that she may be seen in Grey’s Anatomy Season 19, though only for a brief moment.
