Ellen Pompeo: Katherine Heigl is NOT Returning to Grey’s Anatomy


Katherine Heigl may want to return to “Grey’s Anatomy,” but the feeling isn’t mutual.

Ellen Pompeo dropped by “Chelsea Lately” on Tuesday night, and essentially squashed the possibility of Heigl reprising her role as Dr. Izzie Stevens on the medical drama.

Asked by Chelsea Handler if the Knocked Up star is coming back to the series, Pompeo shook her head and replied, “I don’t think so.”

Trying to suppress a telling grin, the actress said definitively, “No. I don’t think that’s happening.”

Heigl had her fair share of drama during her six years on the show.
