Katherine Heigl will be back on "Grey’s Anatomy" next season, The Hollywood Reporter says, citing unnamed sources.
The actress’ option has been picked, sources tell the trade, indicating that her cancer stricken character will survive. There had been speculation that Heigl might be written off the series after she pulled herself out of Emmy consideration, citing a lack of Emmy-worthy material.
Yesterday, Entertainment Weekly reported that co-star T.R. Knight will not be returning to the series.
