Guys, don't freak out, but a major character is coming back to Grey's Anatomy.
The series continues to bring back fan favourites from yesteryear as part of Season 14, and this time, they're bringing back Kim Raver (aka Teddy Altman).
I know most of you were probably hoping for Cristina Yang (I mean, who wasn't?), but it looks like we'll have to settle for the next best thing.
Teddy first arrived at Seattle Grace Mercy West Hospital in Season 6 as the attending cardiothoracic surgeon. She lasted three years on the show until she was fired by Dr. Owen Hunt in order to force her to move on and take the chief position with Army Medical Command.
She was welcomed back into the fold following the shock discovery that - SPOILER - Owen's sister Megan was alive earlier this season.
Last year, Kim told TVLine that she would "100%" return to Grey's if asked: "I love being part of this company. I love working with Shonda Rhimes. I love working with the cast. Literally for me it’s definitely home. I feel fortunate enough to be able to go off and join other companies, but every time I come back to Grey’s it’s really like being home."
And according to TVLine, she's due to reprise her role this spring, so it looks like romance could be in the air for Teddy and former flame Owen Hunt.
So will this appearance lead to a full time position in Season 15? After all, both Teddy and Owen are now conveniently single, and let's not forget that Ellen Pompeo has signed on for two more seasons as Meredith Grey, so the show isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
Grey's Anatomy continues with the second half of Season 14 on Thursdays.
