Could the upcoming season of Grey’s Anatomy get any better? We’ve already received enough incredible casting news to completely blow our minds, and now there are rumors that Sara Ramirez could be returning to the hit show to reprise her role as Callie Torres.
But don’t hold your breath, Grey’s fans. According to executive producer Debbie Allen, “there are no plans at the moment” for Ramirez to return to the series, even for a guest role, during Season 14.
“We love her and we miss her, [but] there’s been no discussion of it,” Allen added.
We probably shouldn’t have gotten our hopes up. But from the moment we learned that Marika Dominczyk, who played Arizona’s most recent girlfriend on the show, won’t be returning for the upcoming season, we couldn’t help but wonder who would pick up the pieces of newly single Arizona’s broken heart. And who better than her old flame Callie? They were so great when they were together. We need them back together.
Ramirez starred in the show up until Season 12, when she was written out because Callie announced she was relocating to take a job in New York.
“I’m deeply grateful to have spent the last 10 years with my family at Grey’s Anatomy and ABC, but for now, I’m taking some welcome time off,” Ramirez said at the time. “[Series creator] Shonda [Rhimes has] been so incredible to work for, and we will definitely continue our conversations.”
So far, though, those conversations haven’t continued, at least to the point of getting Ramirez back on the show. Fans will just have to keep waiting and hoping, we guess.
