Patrick Dempsey made a miraculous return to Grey’s Anatomy earlier this season, as Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) went into a comatose state on the show due to coronavirus.
The 54-year-old actor reappeared as Derek Shepherd in Meredith’s COVID dreams, after he perished in season 11 following a tragic car accident.
In a new interview with Variety, showrunner Krista Vernoff revealed again that Derek aka “McDreamy” will be seen “again in the back half of the season.”
Previously, she had stated that there were plans to have him in three more times throughout season 17.
Krista also addressed rumors that more of the original stars, like Eric Dane, Sara Ramirez and even Sandra Oh, would be returning this season with cameos.
“We all have hopes, but we don’t have anything new to report yet,” she shared, specifically about Eric‘s Mark Sloan.
For the other rumors, Krista added that the cast list featured on IMDb was “some glitch”, and most of them would not be appearing.
During the mid-season finale this week, viewers saw Meredith slip back into a comatose state following a COVID high she experienced that had her saving the life of a patient before she collapsed on the hospital floor.
