Grey’s Anatomy season 17 may be the end of the long-running medical drama, and if so, then they are pulling out all the stops with bringing back classic cast members.

We’ve already had Derek Shepherd and George O’Malley make guest appearances so far, and now it’s been confirmed that we can tick another fan-favourite character off our ‘who’s coming back for season 17?’ bingo card.

As confirmed by Entertainment Weekly, Sarah Drew is reprising her role of April Kepner at some point this season, having last appeared at the end of season 14.

We’ve no idea in what context she’ll be appearing, but the character does have a child with Jesse Williams’ Jackson, so that could work.

Another star who actor Kevin McKidd is hoping will return is Sandra Oh. Speaking to Digital Spy, he said: “I’d love to get a chance to work with her again.

“I’d love to see how Cristina and Owen would interact all these years later, because they left each other really still in love with each other but she had to change her life. So I think that would be top of my list, Sandra Oh. I don’t know if that will happen, but that would be amazing.”

Meanwhile, season 17 has finally been given a premiere date in the UK – April 7.
