Is the beloved Cristina Yang coming back to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital in season 13? Sandra Oh sounds off on the rumors that she’s returning to the soapy medical drama and reveals the truth once and for all!
“I’ve gotta tell you those rumors, I don’t know who starts them but it really is tough,” Sandra, 45, told ET Canada at the Toronto International Film Festival. “No, I have no plans to return to Grey’s anytime soon.”
Noooooo! Come on, Sandra! We need our weekly dose of Cristina Yang back in our lives.
Rumors started running rampant earlier this year that Sandra might be returning to Grey’s when she was super cryptic about it during an interview with the LA Times. “I love that there are rumors,” she said.
Sandra left the show in 2014 after playing Cristina Yang for 10 seasons. Her character, the ambitious, determined, tough-as-nails doctor, was a fan favorite from the show’s start. Sandra departed just months before Patrick Dempsey’s Derek Shepherd was killed off in season 11. It was double whammy for longtime fans, who did not expect to lose two major characters (again!) so quickly,
Even though she’s no longer on the show, Sandra still has a lot of love for her Grey’s family. She reunited with her former onscreen lover, Kevin McKidd (a.k.a. Owen), for a belated birthday dinner in Aug. 2015. Aw!
The show hasn’t been the same since Sandra left. Cristina and Meredith’s friendship is and always will be one of the many highlights of Grey’s Anatomy. The show has always left the door open for the characters that weren’t killed off, so hopefully Cristina will make an appearance before the show ends — if it ever does! Grey’s Anatomy returns for season 13 Sept. 22 on ABC.
