Shonda gave us the dirt on Katherine’s character Izzie!

Katherine Heigl‘s character Izzie Stevens has been MIA from Seattle Grace Hospital since Jan. 21, and we know you’re dying to know whether or not she has plans to scrub back in. So that’s exactly what we asked Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes at the NAACP Image Awards on Feb. 26 in Los Angeles — and she told us exactly what we wanted to hear!

“[Izzie] is written into an episode,” she confirmed to HollywoodLife.com on the red carpet.

And even though she wouldn’t give us any specifics on Izzie’s return, she did dish about newcomer Jesse Williams. “He’s definitely working for the show, and he’s pretty great to look at,” she said (and we agree!) “I think it was nice for the audience to have some sort of villains [the doctors from Mercy West] that would compete with our Seattle Grace characters. … You learn more about [Jesse’s] character in the next episode.”

She also nixed a potential future for Christina (Sandra Oh) and Jesse’s character, Jackson. “We dont think anything more will happen with Christina and Jackson,” she said. “She has her own story line that is developing and shaping. We’ve written an episode that.”

Wow… a surprise return from Izzie and new storylines for Christina and Jackson? Sounds like things are heating up at Seattle Grace!

An episode? Doesn’t really seem like much of a spoiler if you ask me. And what’s sad is the fact that I’ve been watching Grey’s Anatomy since it first premiered back in 2005 (06?), and it was pretty good until the death of O’malley and then the merger and then Heigl’s character slowly (but surely) getting written out of the script. Plus we rarely see much of Meredith anymore, we see more of her sister Lexie now and its just not the Grey’s I knew and love. I still watch Grey’s Anatomy, but it just does not interest me as it use to. Private Practice has risen up and surpassed Grey’s Anatomy in all aspects.

I agree! Private Practice is SOOOO much better than Grey’s now… I just wish ABC would give it as much promotion as they do Grey’s. They need to realize what they have!!
