In a shocking announcement, Grey's Anatomy producer Shonda Rhimes confirmed today that Isaiah Washington will check back in to her ABC series to help bid farewell to Sandra Oh in May.
The actor departed the series at the conclusion of Season 3 amidst a firestorm he created by referring to then-colleague T.R. Knight by a gay slur.
Washington's character, Dr. Preston Burke, was written off the drama when he left Oh's Cristina at the altar.
Oh, meanwhile, said last year that she would be leaving the drama following Grey's Anatomy Season 10.
