Isaiah Washington Returning To Grey’s Anatomy 7 Years After Controversial Exit
Isaiah Washington is returning to “Grey’s Anatomy” seven years after his scandalous exit from the show back in 2007.
The actor, who was fired from the series after calling then-closeted co-star T.R. Knight a “f***ot” during an argument, will guest star on a May episode of the ABC drama.
Washington will reprise his role as Dr. Preston Burke in Sandra Oh’s last season on the show.
The actor last appeared on the season three finale, when he left Oh’s character Cristina Yang at the altar.
“Grey’s Anatomy” creator Shonda Rhimes said in a statement, “It’s important to me that Cristina’s journey unfolds exactly as it should. Burke is vital to that journey — he gives her story that full-circle moment we need to properly say goodbye to our beloved Cristina Yang.”
