Katherine Heigl is hoping to make a return to Grey’s Anatomy. The actress previously played the character Izzie in the hospital drama, and has told the showrunner of the show, Shonda Rhimes, that she would like to come back at some stage, but realizes it might be hard to write the return in because there is so many other stories happening:

“I’ve told them I want to [return]. I don’t know … Being a showrunner and being a writer of a TV series like that is so complicated that I mean she’s got how many characters are there now? There’s a lot and so she’s balancing about 40 different storylines, so I don’t know if it fits in to their sort of vision for this season or next or however many seasons it goes.”

Katherine explains that she is curious to see what has happened to her character Izzie, since her character exited the show after her on-screen husband ended their relationship. Katherine wants to know what lies ahead for her old character, because she thinks Izzie should get take some control and achieve some success for a change:

“I really, really, really want to see where [Izzie] is. I just want to know what happened to her and where she went and what she’s doing now. My idea is that she actually like figures it out, and finds some success and does really well in a different hospital. She was always floundering you know, and so she was always one step behind the eight ball and I want to see that girl take some power back.”
