In a telling exchange on Monday’s Chelsea Lately, special guest Ellen Pompeo dismissed talk that Heigl may be checking back into Seattle Grace as Izzie.
“I don’t think so,” Pompeo replied with a rather telling chuckle. “No, I don’t think that’s happening.”
In January while doing press for her action-comedy One For the Money, Heigl told TVLine, “If they want me to return for an arc, I would love to know where Izzie is now. It’s been a couple of years. I really hope she’s succeeding somewhere.”
